    Firearms bill to be introduced in January by Feinstein

    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 devices.
    To receive updates on this legislation, click here.





    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 or more military characteristics; and
      • 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; and
      • 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.

    She is nothing but a gun grabber. Lets hope some other people in congress actually have some balls to flush this crap down the toilet.

    Problem is that the beotche's mind is made up. Don't confuse her with the facts.

    Oh, did I mention that she's a BEOTCH?

    .

    Her's and a lot of other minds have been made. I do not believe her initial bill will be passed. However, I do think that something will be and it won't be good. I believe a lot of politicians are scared that if they don't support some form of gun ban and or registration they will be out of a job. God knows they can't let that happen.

    I look around at other officers and wonder that if it were to become illegal to possess an unregistered firearm what officer would pursue the issue.

    Yeah, let's worry about this. Because criminals have such a record for complying with laws. And it's not like there's a little budget thing to deal with, right?

    Agreed. We dumb locals aren't suppose to enforce federal laws like immigration anyway.
