For example, rifles are banned by name and include the 'Colt AR-15' and 'AK-47', among others. Semiautomatic rifles are also banned by features. Folks, please be careful with this.
For a complete list of banned-by-name rifles and feature restrictions, you may check CT laws here http://www.ct.gov/dps/lib/dps/special_licensing_and_firearms/assault_weapons.pdf
