No, you are wrong...terminology has shifted...

They are focusing on "assault weapons" and "military-style assault weapons". It is no longer just "rifles" that they are going after...it is all "military-style assault weapons"...they want to ban any weapon that they can classify as "military-style weapon" or an "assault weapon". This includes many types of handguns.
