    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
    weapon;
    (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...

    (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.

    and

    clips, or stripper clips that load cartridges into the magazine.

    Pretty soon, in order to buy a "non-assault" weapon, we'll have to buy water pistols w/fixed sights, nonremoveable stock, etc...

    Not in .223, but I'm surprised the M1 Carbine is legal. I'd consider that.

    There's also the Volquartsen Evolution, but it isn't exactly budget friendly with a base price over $2k.
