"That's correct," Feinstein said. "I'll pick the time and the place, no question about it."

Arrogant statement.

It also highlights the deceitful nature of Congress.

Good. Maybe now my ammo will come down in price so I can stock up before Diane decides "it's time!".

Why would anyone need an assault rifle unless they were on the S.W.A.T. team? What am I missing?

Assault rifle is a misnomer used to cause fear. It is inappropriate for what they really are, semi-auto weapons.

If I told you you should fear me more with a shotgun in my hands, you would then want to ban shotguns. See how this works? Oh lets be reasonable right?

Misnomer or not, what's the answer to the question?

Nobody needs an assault rifle, you have the right to own one if you choose. Your missing the fact that the assault rifle ban does not ban assault rifles which are for the most part unavailable to the general public, it bans semi-automatic weapons that look like assault rifles. That is the answer to both questions.

What we regular people get to buy are not Assault rifles. They are assault style rifles. Such as my Mini-14. It is not used by Swat teams.

The primary reason for owning a any firearm is self defense, hunting and sport use follow.

A firearm is the ultimate equalizer against an otherwise overwhelming adversary. It allows the person in a weaker position the upper hand.

ETA : If confronted by a roving gang of criminals you might be glad you have more than 6 rounds available.
