To be eligible for the 1994 ban, a semi-automatic weapon was required to have two defining "assault" features. In AWB 2.0, this is reduced to just one. An "assault rifle" is thus any weapon that has a "a detachable magazine" and one of the following: "pistol grip; forward grip; folding, telescoping, or detachable stock; grenade launcher or rocket launcher; barrel shroud; or threaded barrel."
An "assault pistol," meanwhile, is any weapon that has a "detachable magazine" and one of the following: "threaded barrel; second pistol grip; barrel shroud; capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip; or semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm."
An "assault shotgun" is anything that has a "folding, telescoping, or detachable stock; pistol grip; fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 5 rounds; ability to accept a detachable magazine; forward grip; grenade launcher or rocket launcher; or shotgun with a revolving cylinder."
The new proposal addresses this by banning more. 157, to be precise. They are:
