Virginia Del. Mark Levine (D) wants to ban "assault weapons," but clearly doesn't even know what an "assault weapon" is. 

Levine has proposed a bill (House Bill 961) that would ban "assault weapons," but allow those who already own them to keep them as long as they get a license for them.

He was speaking to constituents at an event when one audience member asked him to define "assault weapon." Levine proceeded to stumble through an uneducated answer in which he warned about the dangers of shotguns and attempted to explain that the biggest difference between an "assault weapons" and other weapons is how they are held.

These are the people that want to take your guns.
