Who knew that the Second Amendment was so specific on what arms the people could and could not bear?

They’re only assault weapons in the hands of tyrannical governments and criminals. For law abiding citizens, they’re defense weapons. Damnit!

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 is a low information fanatic in an undeserved position of power. Scary to the max.

This has little chance of passing, but would be a nightmare if it did. It would certainly make more criminals, which may be the real intent.

I’d rather stop the spread of Senator ‘I’ve worked hard for that title’ Dianne Feinstein.

One would think that modern medicine could prevent such monstrosities.

The Democrats and the communists are running scared. And they need be! Some Americans are getting real damn mad.

I guess that the photo and finger prints are for easier identification after the ATF does one of it’s famous no knock raid and kills everything alive in your house. Ooooops wrong address, our bad.

NFA kind of reminds me of two genius plans hatched by liberal idiots, the California SKS confiscation (fail) and the Canadian long gun registration (fail and if my memory serves me correctly the Indian tribes paid no attention to this nonsense and then this spread to the other serfs)

As for the NFA and select fire I’m pretty sure that the ATF has a hard time keeping up with deaths of holders, imagine keeping up with millions of dying “naughty gun” holders. Reminds me of a story told to me, a nice old lady shows up at a gun shop with an MP-40, a real one. Well it seems her deceased husband never bothered to transfer it and so in the end the machine gun went to a museum.

Chicago the Daley crooks hatched a plan to go after lapsed FOID card holders so the gun squad picked a white ethnic name out of the hat (very political) and raided an 80 year old man’s house. That nonsense lasted exactly once.

The only NFA gun I want and will pay the tithe for now is the SAW. So my counter offer to Feinswine no NFA for semis and you open up the select fire registration. (think of the tax revenue)

This is the nail in the coffin.

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

I’m confused. Won’t the same bill need to go through the House before it can be signed into law by the president?

How can this bill be passed without going through the, GOP controlled, House?

If this actually passes, good luck trying to enforce it.

Maybe I’m wrong, but it seems to me it was written like this to make sure it fails. There is no way in hell a bill like this would ever pass and she knows it. My guess is they really don’t have the political capitol to spend on gun control right now and this is their way of just shutting up the antagonists... who knows

Feinstein is seriously pushing for a Lexington & Concord moment.
