Default Summary of Senator Feinstein's AWB Legislation

Just read feinsten's new ban bill, im almost happy. It is too restrictive. It has too much crap. So odds are nobody will pass it.

Default Summary of Senator Feinstein's AWB Legislation

Straight from the horse's mouth:

(Hot linking deliberately disabled, so you'll have to copy and paste.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Stopping the spread of deadly assault weapons



In January, Senator Feinstein will introduce a bill to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devises.

Summary of 2013 legislation

Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:

Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
•120 specifically-named firearms
•Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic
•Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds
•Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
•Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test
•Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test
•Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans
•Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
•Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment
•Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes and
•Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons
•Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
•Background check of owner and any transferee;
•Type and serial number of the firearm;
•Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
•Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
•Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

A pdf of the bill summary is available here:
feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/files/serve/?File_id=10993387-5d4d-4680-a872-ac8ca4359119




There it is folks.

Senator Feinstein is one of the most vocal anti-gun senators in the nation. She has stated on the record that if she could she would have Americans turn in their firearms the next day. It's no secret and this time she's feeling pretty confident. So if you find this act of her's to be disturbing get busy and start doing all that boring stuff like contacting your reps, contacting the NRA and so on. Feinstein has been waiting for an opprotunity like this for years.

I don't see it passing as is, especially registering under the NFA bs. Who's going to pay for the dedicated funding? Trying to bite off more than she can choke on.

I agree, but it's important that this information be put out there. Personally I hope that NPR and the other anti-gun folks keep at it. Keep beating that drum because they're getting people (on our side of this issue) angry and fired up.

I really need an image of an AC566 with a fixed stock plus a five round magazine and an AR15 with a grippod and as many other "evil" features i can cram onto it as i have an Idea for a bit of counter propaganda.

You mean show how the Anti gun people can't tell a Machinegun that falls under legal restrictions dateing back to 1934 and a rifle that is very popular for hunting, target shooting and competition?

I thought passing ex post facto laws was forbidden under the US constitution, meaning that the last part about people who currently legally own "assault weapons" having the register them would be quite clearly unconstitutional would it not?

I would think so, but they did that very thing to owners of full automatic weapons when they passed the 1934 National Firearms Act. As I understand it.

So this bill doesn't ban the possession of the weapons it's trying to ban...which won't change a damn thing
