This will never happen.
And this wouldn't solve the problem.
Who care about assault rifles? In my opinion we could do without.
However, guns in general will never and could never be banned in the US.
You just couldn't physically pull it off.
It's this "who cares about assault rifles?" attitude that will get us all in the end. You DO know that your deer rifle is just a high-speed sniper rifle, right? maybe that should go, too. And your duck hunting shotgun? Just another room-broom for house-to-house combat. Give an inch and they'll take a mile. They're not going to stop at those "evil black rifles" - those are just the tip of the iceberg, the wedge to drive in to split off ALL the guns in the end.
"Who cares about assault rifles?" You'd better - even if you're of the misguided opinion that the Second Amendment is only about duck hunting.
