Push to ban assault weapons in Virginia meets resistance

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Some top Virginia Democratic senators are expressing reservations about plans to ban assault weapons β€” a key part of the new Democratic majority's gun-control proposals and one that's drawn fierce resistance from gun-rights advocates.
β€œA lot of people don't really understand assault weapons and how complicated the issue really is," said Democratic Sen. John Edwards. β€œIt's going to be very difficult to figure out a way to do it. But we're studying it, that's all I can say.”

Those details include like what technically constitutes an assault weapon or what to do with people who already own them.

How far down are they likely to go with their definition of an Assault Weapon?

Will it include the:

bayonet
Ka-Bar
entrenching tool
tomahawk
mace or trench club
sword
lance
rock?
