It is a common misconception that the assault weapons ban restricted weapons capable of fully-automatic fire, such as assault rifles and machine guns.
Assault rifle - definition of Assault rifle in Encyclopedia (2568 words)
As a massed military weapon, assault rifles share common features: light weight, hand grips positioned for good instinctive pointing (for unaimed "intuitive" fire), bayonet lugs (to provide lethality without ammunition), selectable fire rates, high reliability, large magazines, and simplified operation.
Some weapons such as the AK-47, although classified as assault rifles, were designed as light infantry automatic weapons with single-shot capability, rather than rifles with the option of full-automatic fire, such as the M16A1.
The first assault rifle was probably the Italian-made 6.5x52mm gas-operated Cei-Rigotti, developed in the 1890s or 1900s, but it did not enter military service.
