You can read more at The Law Dictionary: What it means and What it means for the Law. Note: The use of shotguns, assault weapons, air rifles, machine guns, short-barreled shotguns such as the AR-15 and the M-14 or “Stinger” shotgun, and rifles capable of lethal cartridges with a detachable ammunition magazine is not considered a “weapon of war”.
