What is an "assault weapon?" That is a vague identifier. Regardless, the 2nd Amendment states our right to bear arms shall not be infringed. The left tries to blur the lines between semi auto and automatic rifles. Automatics are already banned and semi Automatics are the most popular rifle in America. Stop trying to restrict law abiding people's constitutional rights and start enforcing the existing laws against using firearms in a crime. Lock the real criminals using guns to harm people up for decades.
