Some Oregon leaders are looking to reinstate a ban on 'Assault Weapons'.

Other possible features that may be included in the ban are pistol grips on rifles, large bullet clips, threaded barrels, folding or telescoping stocks, or any semiautomatic version of a fully-automatic weapon.

Lawmakers are also talking about making it harder for gun manufactures to "copycat" gun. Making a similar weapon that by-pass the law.

The following links show a list of the guns and features that were banned during the 1994-2004 Federal Weapons Ban.
