From that website:
The law says rifles have to be semi-automatic and detachable mag, with 1 evil feature to be an assault weapon. Mag size is no part of it, other than there being a separate mag size law.
Shotguns just need 1 evil feature, or > 7-round mag, to be an assault weapon.
I joined the NRA, have you yet?
