Most people now own AR15 such as the bushmaster
By Federal Law (since the 1930s) it takes a Class III license to own a full auto.
The Brady Law that "pre-ban" refers to forced manufacturers to alter the internal design of the trigger group so that it could not be illegally converted to selective fire (full-auto). Of course, it was always illegal for an owner to make it full-auto anyway. If you want to make a post-ban weapon full-auto, you could PROBABLY do it with extensive machine work, though, but it would be obvious to simple inspection, and you'd go to jail dang quick.
And anything on the civilian market is probably an AR-15 semi-auto. Only the military is allowed the full-auto M-16.
I seem to recall a Military Gun Act of 1792 ? which required all households to have a military rifle and ammunition for it. Our forefathers certainly did not have hunting on their minds.
