Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is citing “domestic terrorism” concerns in her latest push to ban AR-15s and other commonly owned semiautomatic rifles.
Breitbart News noted Feinstein’s new ban, the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2021,” was put forward Thursday with at least 34 Senate Democrat co-sponsors.
The bill is designed to ban 205 different firearms, including different variants of the wildly popular AR-15 rifle.
The New York Post reports Feinstein is citing “domestic terrorism” as an impetus for the ban. She said, “We’re now seeing a rise in domestic terrorism, and military-style assault weapons are increasingly becoming the guns of choice for these dangerous groups.”
Feinstein’s legislation would also ban ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
On November 7, 2020, Breitbart News pointed to National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) figures showing Americans own more than 71 million pistol magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds and “79.2 million rifle magazines capable of holding 30 or more rounds.”
The NSSF figures indicate that Americans own nearly 20 million modern sporting rifles, which are firearms that the Democrats categorize as “assault weapons.”
Feinstein’s office released a supplemental fact sheet on her “assault weapons” ban, claiming said firearms are “weapons designed for war [that] have no place on the streets of a civilized society.”

Zero guns confiscated from people within the capitol. Zero. This wasn’t the “armed insurrection” the gaslight media would like everyone to believe occurred.
She’s just mad because they wouldn’t let her and her husband sell the San Diego Navy Yard to the communist Chinese a few years ago. What is she , 100 now?
DiFi is a commie sympathizer; has been for many years.
This whole pile of legislative tripe has nothing to do with crime or terrorism. It has ALWAYS been about CONTROL.
They are scared of an armed populace.
What are they intending to do, for which they might get shot? Asking for a friend...
Here’s a government official who used a Communist Chinese spy on staff for decades while she is busy accusing everyone else of terrorism. You can’t even make this chet up.
Her “supplemental fact sheet” fails to mention governments tally of dead citizens when they own disarmed populations.
Lets have an 1 million man AR-15 march to Washington......just to watch the politicians and the Military sh!t themselves! We could single handily tear down the fence and the National Guard won’t do a damn thing to stop it.
The better to gun down the proles with.
Of course, we haven't been assigned a color for our six-pointed stars yet...
Most of the terrorists that I saw in 2020 were armed with glass bottles filled with gasoline and a cloth wick, skateboards, bats with nails protruding and heavy-duty fireworks. Does Dianne plan to ban those items too?
Lots of domestic terror concerns in 1776 as well. hmm.
Maybe they’re worried about the children of illegals having access to these guns. You know...after their family has been moved into your spare bedroom.
Can’t be happy with just AR or AK based weapons. Got to go for handguns and all. Let’s lower the amount of bullets any other guns can hold. NO. Leave it alone.
I'm no Constitutional scholar but it seems that a bill like this would be struck down by the courts.
And BTW...the vote in the Caetano case was 9-0.
Keep praying everyone for God to bring sanity to the United States of America. We have been praying for God to expose evil in this country and He certainly has and is. This world is not our home but while we are still here keep praying and spreading His Word. May God Bless You All!
“... struck down by the courts...” Did you read what you wrote? :-)
Wonder if the Chinese told her to say this?
Britain considered the colonists to be domestic terrorists too.
Chiraq just had another “routine” weekend in the city with the gun laws dims just love.
