    Having been in the position of enforcement of some rather questionable laws......as in the necessity of it for public safety.....I am quite sure this type of generality will result in the criminalization of otherwise law abiding difference making citizens.

    Do we really want say an enforcement officer carrying around a trigger pull measuring device which will result in a five or ten year felony sentence because the interpretation says x amount of trigger pull equals a violation of the “rate of fire” restrictions?

    Id really prefer law makers be honest and just admit they want to repeal the 2nd amendment and confiscate all citizen firearms. Well, a few already have.

    On the day of the Mandalay shooting .....millions of Americans possessed the same kinds of firearms and did nothing evil with them. So why should we punish them? McVeigh killed 168 and injured over 680 with a rental truck in just one incident. Wouldn’t it make just as much sense to mandate criminal history checks on all renters of moving trucks?

    Do we want to live in a country where every hotel you check into has to search your bags, go through a metal detector and ban possession of firearms?

    I don't think I'd stay in such a hotel.

    Actually, there is a rate of fire at manufacture/design time. It is called as fast as you can pull the trigger and all semi automatic firearms have that.

    So at that rate, there are still questions and potentially people themselves are illegal.
