I just saw that D.C. bans the following semi-auto rifles:
A semiautomatic, rifle that has the
capacity to accept a detachable magazine
and any one of the following:
(aa) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously
beneath the action of the
(bb) A thumbhole stock;
(cc) A folding or telescoping stock;
(dd) A grenade launcher or flare launcher;
(ee) A flash suppressor; or
(ff) A forward pistol grip;
Is there a semi-auto .223 that has a regular hunting style stock and will accept a magazine?
(and, of course, it must not have a flash suppressor)

Mini-14? Saiga .223? The latter will work well for hunting because it's easily scopeable and very accurate in the 16" version.

And despite all of this crap, DC still has more crime every day than any other place in the US. I mean look, millions are stolen from average Joe's every day and everyone who lives nearby is denied their right to arms to keep them from carrying on this illegal crap...

That's pretty much the wording here in the People's Republik of **********, which has resulted in the "bullet button" - which requires a "tool" to remove the magazine. See http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/36_763_977/products_id/71971/SWL+MP15SPORT+811038+5.56+16+FXMAG+10 for a gun that meets CA specs as legal - I just picked one up this afternoon.
12276.1 (a) Notwithstanding Penal Code section 12276, “assault weapon” shall also mean the following:
(1) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of
(A) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon.
(B) A thumbhole stock.
(C) A folding or telescoping stock.
(D) A grenade launcher or flare launcher.
(E) A flash suppressor.
(F) A forward pistol grip.
(2) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10
(3) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.
Note: Bayonets and bayonet lugs are not assault weapon characteristics under California law.
Magazine, detachable - An ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm with neither
disassembly of the firearm action nor use of a tool being required. A bullet or ammunition cartridge is considered
a tool. Ammunition feeding device includes any belted or linked ammunition, but does not include clips, en bloc
clips, or stripper clips that load cartridges into the magazine.
