The claim that the AWB bans guns based on cosmetic features is left over rhetoric from the last time. The new ban is so much more extensive and names so many more guns specifically that it's just not true.
This is a classic pro-gun trick, exaggerate or distort what the opposition says and then argue against it as if they really did say it. You can see it on this very blog all the time. The gun-rights folks take their cue from the NRA.
