Essentially, banning these weapons.  The law would grandfather certain weapons owned prior to the enactment of this law.  In addition, and just to ensure that all semi-automatic rifles are banned, the law would further states "a semiautomatic, centerfire, or rimfire rifle that has an overall length of less than thirty inches; or a conversion kit, part, or combination of parts, from which an assault weapon can be assembled if those parts are in the possession or under the control of the same person are also prohibited.
