Game: Find the "Assault Weapon"!

[Note: This post originally appeared here. One of my first.]

Ok boys and girls, let's play a little game called "Find the Assault Weapon"

Now, to picture number 2:

There you have it. One would be banned under standard assault weapons ban provisions, the other would not. Which one is the "assault weapon"?
