Senator Feinstein Files Bill to Ban Nearly All Civilian Firearms

Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) filed legislation Wednesday (January 9) that if passed, would ban practically all semi-automatic firearms. A press release from Feinstein’s office said the legislation would not affect “more than 2,200 guns for hunting, household defense or recreational purposes.” Yet the actual terms of the proposed ban tell a different story.

The legislation would ban all firearms that can have “a detachable ammunition magazine” or that have “one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel, or a folding or telescoping stock,” the release states. Practically all semi-automatic rifles, handguns, and even some shotguns utilize detachable magazines. The inclusion of threaded barrels would eliminate noise suppressors. And, finally, the inclusion of pistol grips, a forward grip, barrel shrouds, or a folding or telescoping stock, all of which would be banned under the legislation, would effectively disarm a majority of law-abiding gun owners.

The Feinstein’s proposed “assault weapons” ban includes a grandfather clause that exempts all weapons lawfully possessed at the date of enactment. But even those firearms would come under strict government oversight and excessive restrictions for maintaining ownership.

Key provisions of the legislation:

•Bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name. Owners may keep existing weapons.

•Bans any assault weapon that accepts a detachable ammunition magazine and has one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock. Owners may keep existing weapons.

•Bans magazines and other ammunition feeding devices that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which allow shooters to quickly fire many rounds without needing to reload. Owners may keep existing magazines.

•Requires a background check on any future sale, trade or gifting of an assault weapon covered by the bill.

•Requires that grandfathered assault weapons are stored using a secure gun storage or safety device like a trigger lock.

•Prohibits the transfer of high-capacity ammunition magazines.

•Bans stocks that are “otherwise foldable or adjustable in a manner that operates to reduce the length, size, or any other dimension, or otherwise enhances the concealability of a firearm.”

•Bans assault pistols that weigh 50 or more ounces when unloaded, a policy included in the original 1994 ban.

•Bans assault pistol stabilizing braces that transform assault pistols into assault rifles by allowing the shooter to shoulder the weapon and fire more accurately.

•Bans Thordsen-type grips and stocks that are designed to evade a ban on assault weapons.

Support for the proposed gun ban was decidedly based on emotional appeal. Senator Murphy said, “Military-style assault rifles are the weapons of choice for mass murderers. There’s just no reason why these guns, which were designed to kill as many people as quickly as possible, are sold to the public,” said Senator Chris Murphy. “This past year, we’ve seen Americans rise up and demand Congress change our gun laws. Banning assault weapons would save lives, and I’m proud to join Senator Feinstein in introducing this bill.”

Senator Blumenthal opined, “Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are deadly and dangerous weapons of war that belong on battlefields—not our streets. They have no purpose for self-defense or hunting, and no business being in our schools, churches and malls. By passing this legislation, Congress can honor the memory of the beautiful lives cut short by military-style assault weapons in Newtown, Parkland, Las Vegas, San Bernardino and far too many other American cities. This is the year for my colleagues to turn our rhetoric into reality and finally end America’s gun violence epidemic.”

Senator Feinstein referenced the faux “spontaneous student protest”, saying, “Last year we saw tens of thousands of students nationwide take to the streets to demand action to stop mass shootings and stem the epidemic of gun violence that plagues our communities. Our youngest generation has grown up with active-shooter drills, hiding under their desks—and now they’re saying enough is enough. Americans across the nation are asking Congress to reinstate the federal ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. If we’re going to put a stop to mass shootings and protect our children, we need to get these weapons of war off our streets.”

Co-sponsors of the proposed legislation included many of the usual demobrat anti Second Amendment rat pack, and included senators Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Tom Carper (D-Del.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Tina Smith (D-Minn.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.).

You want to stop mass shooting? Open the mental hospitals the the LIBERALS closed and BAN the dangerous PEOPLE by putting them there. That’ll end the menally ill homeless problem as well, probably saving gumment money or at least spending it to make EVERYBODY safer, including the homeless. DUH. In the mean time, law abiding people will be able to defend themselves from the ones the gumment misses. Screw fienstien and her ilk. Liberalism is truly a mental disorder. Maybe we could lock them in one of the Mental Care facilities.

Is it o.k. to say dumb cu*t here?

She won’t even get her dems to go along, The Republican’s are a for sure no and Trump will quietly use the pocket veto if the Republicans fold up like the spinless weasels that they are.

If the Second Amendment goes, so goes the Constitution. Who do they think they are? Of course they don’t work for us. That says it all. Their owners want our guns. Remember that. Could there be a reason? I think there is.

First big laugh/ha-ha: criminals are listening to/going to listen to any and all gun laws passed by Federal or State legislatures. Ha!

After all that’s been said and done since Trump announced running for president the chances of getting cooperation from the so called “deplorables” to heed the words, much less the “laws” of the “despicables” are remote indeed. There will be resistance and lots of “spite work”. I don’t think their propaganda machine will be able to keep a solid connection throughout the countryside. I also think Hollywood will lose a lot more money because of piracy. Finally, I think the so called “antifa” are going to be “buried like dog shit”.

That is of course unless the finger on the trigger is some brainwashed government assassin, on a mission to push around or kill us cattle.
It’s already happened here in UK, don’t let it happen in USA.

Possibly correct – that’s why the US Army and Marine Corp are issued with them.

Molon Labe, Feinstein & other Demonrats.

Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that Second Amendment applies to individuals, not militias, and may include military weapons.

The reason they want to ban any guns with “muscle” is they’re deathly afraid someday “we the people” will use them on themselves. They plan to disarm us incrementally… one restrictive bill at a time. Not now… Not never!!

All of this is just going to lead to the second American civil war. And the invasion afterwards by China and Russia and others. A house divided will not stand. Should be a great adventure for a while. Remember General Paton said Americans love war because it is exciting and ends boredom.

There has never been a government that banned it’s own ARMED FORCES from “Keeping and Bearing” ARMS. Find one government in the history of humanity that felt a need to document a “RIGHT” for it’s ARMED FORCES to possess ARMS. Oppressive Governments are ALWAYS banning the People’S RIGHTS to arms. The claim that the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment to give Our ARMED FORCES a “right” to keep and carry ARMS is S-T-U-P-I-D. The only reason for the Second Amendment is to clearly spell-out the GOD GIVEN RIGHT of INDIVIDUALS to keep & bear ARMS. The only reason for… Read more »

Anyone who thinks Trump would veto such a bill apparently never listened to his public statements on the subject. He clearly told Feinstein he supported her bill at a Whitehouse meeting, while his own administration and press were press were present. In the same meeting he told lawmakers to kill the proposed reciprocity bill.

Apologists for Trump then explained this all away as being 63 dimensional chess, rather than simply listening to what Trump said.

One has to conclude that they are making their final push. They will never recover from their radical agenda if they aren’t successful. I don’t want to be told to worship queers and that I can’t protect myself. I don’t want to have to ask a communist lunatic for permission.

Remember, these mutts took oaths. This is about as clear an Amendment as they come. They should be brought up on charges for even suggesting such a thing:

So let’s assume President Trump does manage to remove or jail all the hacks and treasonous traitors, from DOJ to FBI to corrupt judges to lobbyists to NGOs to the MSM, all the way to Brennan, Clapper, Hillary, and Barry. He drains the swamp. And I suspect that eventually he will. The thing that I can’t get my head around is, THEN WHAT? It’s clear the remaining liberals and elitists, the professors and the snowflakes, not to mention the local level anti-Trump politicians and sheeple are not going to accept that kind of outcome and will probably riot. All those… Read more »

Feinstein and her ilk MUST be stopped. But people have to be able to grow a brain and understand the simple truth that this is all a part of a greater plot to cripple the American public. Already overfed and obese as it is, as long as people have enough stuff, they don’t seem to care too much about their rights. EXCEPT FOR US: We understand what happens once government gains the upper hand. We know enough of history to understand what tyranny is. And Feinstein—and a large number of other politicians—have got to be rounded up. You can fill… Read more »

I wonder if any of those in the Senate or the House read any history? This country was founded on our Constitution, which includes the right for we citizens to bear arms. Why don’t they understand that? Could they be lacking in education? If so, why are they still allowed to keep their jobs? Perhaps they don’t realize the citizens of this country are NOT as stupid as they think. Surely they must see that they are not indispensable. It’s time for them to DO THEIR JOBS. They were voted in to represent the people. If they no longer want… Read more »

Oh gawd. Women are only defended by white men and she wants to disarm them.
Women can’t fight, fix a tire, do a roof, or even build a house and they want to disarm white man.

Women should tell this bad c* nt not to do that.

Feindstein KNOWS that Bolshevik Commie Jew TRAITORS in Congress like her will be the first ones these firearms are used against, thus her desire to ban them. She and her ilk are only PROTECTING THEMSELVES with such legislation, not the average American citizen. After such a ban, then look for the New CHEKA to be formed. CHEKA was the prototype of the later KGB in in 1920’s Russia after the 1917 Bolshevik Jew overthrow of the White Russian Gov’t.
