Something doesn't add up...

They charged this guy with six counts of possessing an assault weapon, plus some miscellaneous stuff related to drugs and carrying a concealed firearm and generally being an idiot.  But the article claims they found "five fully automatic high-powered rifles".  Fully automatic rifles are not "assault weapons" by the federal definition.  If they were really fully-automatic, shouldn't we expect to see federal charges?

I suspect they are standard semi-automatic rifles, possibly (but not necessarily) assault weapons under the California definition.

Anyways, it's good to see how effective California's gun control laws are.

That is, "not very."
