Senator Feinstein Files Bill to Ban Nearly All Civilian Firearms

Rate this post

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.).

  1. 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.

     
    • Reagan as governor was the one who closed all the mental hospitals in California during his term as governor. It was not just democrats who did it but they should have left all of them open, that is for sure.

       
      • That is ABSOLUTELY true, John, I was there. It WAS a good state to live in once, Pre-Ray-Gun. It is my number-one bucket list item to pee on his grave before I go to mine.

         
        • True, agree, but you’re off your nut. Regan did two bone head things, the mental hospital funding, and amnesty for illegals. Other than that Regan presided over the greatest growth this world has ever seen. I was too young when he was governer to say but it’s liberals that have ruined the state of Kosacfornia

           
          • no he did 3 bone headed thing he made the temp worker industry legal and in so doing he phuced millions of people in the a$$ for decades to come regun was a bad joke on america and to few people are willing to admit it…..

             
          • once again they did not post my comment….

             
  2. 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.

     
  3. 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.

     
  4. It’s apparent that the communist left in this country are deathly afraid of us. Are you sleeping well at night – Feinstein? Better sleep with a night light on. 😉

     
    • LOL!!! And it’d be a good idea to call your Security guards every half hour or so,just to make sure they’re still there…..

       
  5. 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!

    Second big laugh/ha-ha: I don’t want to fear my government(s), I want them to fear me. Evidently, they do. Ha!

     
  6. Anything except revolvers, bolt action rifles, double-barrel shotguns and Winchester ’73s… back to the 1890s.

     
    • Now I’m picturing a long-time gun collector out in the shop asking himself,”HMmm-Let’s see now-How can I make THIS gun work like my old semi-auto???” Actually,except for emergencies,where rapid,split-second gunfire is needed,those old guns work as well as,if not better than any of the newer semi-auto guns-just not as FAST. (Think Sniper mode) But that’s not the issue-if they’re gonna try to ban OUR guns,they must be REQUIRED to take all the guns owned by CRIMINALS FIRST. Failure to comply with THIS will make Feinstein as PROVABLY CRIMINAL as any Felon in Prison. Could that not be seen as Conspiring with Criminals to kill or injure anyone in America? Furthermore,we’d suggest that,as an act of “good Faith” she should disarm ALL her Security People,making them (and HER) vulnerable to the very SAME risk the rest of us would be vulnerable to. If Disarmed America is safe enough for HER to be without firearm protection,then we can figure the only harm done will be in the loss of ALL of our Rights.

       
  7. 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”.

     
  8. Go ahead and light off the civil war you stinking commie pukes appear to be pining for, komrade Frankenstein.

    You and your ilk really suck at basic math, as there is no way in hell it would end well for you commies.

     
  9. Hey Feinstein….eat shit and die.
    What needs to be banned is politicians that refuse to support the United States Constitution.

     
  10. These psychopaths are out of control. Vote them OUT!!

    And perhaps the first best use of a firearm is to eliminate these kinds of threats to our freedom

     
  11. ”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. ”
    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.

     
  12. Military-style assault rifles are the weapons of choice for mass murderers.
    Possibly correct – that’s why the US Army and Marine Corp are issued with them.

     
  13. This disloyal witch belongs in Gitmo for treason !!!

     
  14. 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.

    • I added this comment-I hope it’s not gonna cause a problem,

      “Interpretation of the Second Amendment by scholars, courts and legislators, from immediately after its ratification through the late 19th century. (Pg. 32–47)”

      This is where a LOT of our Second Amendment problems began,and the word is “RE-interpretation”,because you’ll notice that everything that gets RE-interpreted gets weakened from its original intent AND is altered to insert “Government’s Oversight”. I’m convinced that the Second Amendment was written as we find it in the Bill of Rights SPECIFICALLY to EXCLUDE government intervention and tampering BECAUSE the Founders KNEW what we have now would be a likely outcome if they left the acting Government any opportunity to be involved. Apparently,back then,re-interpretation wasn’t a known means to subvert the Constitution. (Here I must editorialize and say that,true to form,the Democrats have grabbed this handle and are using it to DESTROY the Constitutional values that made America the most successful Nation in History.)

       
  15. 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!!

     
  16. 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.

     
  17. Donald knapstad

    I honor all brave men and women who have gave their lives for freedom and the constitution. If people would start studying all previous wars the usa has fought from the beginning of our country. People like senator Feinstein would be seen in the true evil light they are.

     
  18. All politicians operating under the organic act of 1871.are committing treason.your declaration of independence is your arrest warrant.use it.

     
  19. 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 the BILL(list) of RIGHTS was to codify INDIVIDUALS’ GOD GIVEN RIGHTS.
    Has there ever been a government that was not chock full of it’s “rights” up to and including declaring itself to be the Lord God Almighty?! (Rome, Egypt, Israel,etc)
    Does the 1st Amendment mean the GOVERNMENT is allowed to give speeches? Try shutting up any Politician. But THEY would LOVE to shut YOU up, hence the FIRST Amendment.
    Anyone who tells you the 2nd Amendment applies to the Army or State Militia, is telling you they think you are STUPID.
    There has NEVER been a government that felt it had to codify it’s army’s/soldier’s “RIGHT” to “Keep and BEAR ARMS” because there has NEVER been a government that refused to allow It’s own soldiers to KEEP and BEAR ARMS!
    The Second Amendment was written for the People, like the other 9 Amendments in the Bill of Rights. This was confirmed by the SCOTUS in the DC vs Heller decision, where they stated that the “People” in the Second Amendment were the same “People” that are mentioned in the First and Fourth Amendment.
    The 2nd Amendment clearly codifies the “right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms”, and certainly not “the Militia”.
    Why would “the Militia”, a type of army manned by citizen-soldiers as opposed to full-time “regulars”, need a constitutional amendment to guarantee they have the right “to keep and bear arms”?
    Is there any specific statement anywhere in the Constitution that the army Congress is empowered to raise has the “right to keep and bear arms”? Of course not. …………. That is assumed.

    the 2nd amendment,, specifies that the RIGHT to bear arms is the right of the people,, NOT the militia,,,, it is the people who will make up the militia,, but the right is not the right of a “well regulated militia” it is the right of the people, We the people were BORN WITH INALIENABLE RIGHTS, meaning they come from GOD.

    Your Rights do not come from the Constitution. Your Rights come from Our Creator, and the Constitution was written to SUPERVISE, REGULATE, and CONTROL government actors. As it relates to firearms, the Heller “decision” was completely unnecessary, and likely a smokescreen to make it APPEAR that the USG retained some rights to regulate some firearms. Check out the relevant part of US v. Cruikshank:
    “[The Right to Keep and Bear Arms] is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The second amendment declares that it shall not be infringed;… This is one of the amendments that has no other effect
    than to restrict the powers of the national government,…”.
    U.S. v. Cruikshank Et Al. 92 U.S. 542 (1875).
    Res adjudicata – “the thing has already been decided.”
    The 9th and 10th Amendments help make it ABUNDANTLY clear to even the DENSEST of intellects that we truly have NO “Constitutional rights.” What we have(at the risk of being redundant) is Constitutionally-SECURED rights, but these rights are ONLY as secure as:
    a) the honor and integrity of those taking the oath, and
    b) the ability of the People to COMPEL obedience on pain of perjury charges and removal from office.

    https://resistancetononsense.wordpress.com/2018/06/29/our-preexisting-irrevolkable-right-of-self-defense/

    The intention of the Founders and Framers was to keep our God-given rights secure by REQUIRING those who seek office to take the oath as an immutable predicate to taking office, meaning it is binding on THEM – not on US.

    Of course, most of the power brokers wish to keep us ignorant of our Rights and our Power. If possible, i highly recommend Thomas Paine’s “The Rights of Man,” which should help to educate Americans and illustrate to them the difference between Natural Rights, and what the 14th (never properly ratified, btw) wishes to change that to: “privileges and immunities.”

    It is implicit in the nature of all kinds of armies —- be they militia or regulars, volunteer, conscripted, or mercenary — to be armed.
    They are all “armed forces”.
    They all “bear arms”.
    They all carry guns.
    That is what they do.
    It certainly no more requires an amendment to the Constitution to state that “the Militia” has the RKBA , than a specific statement that the army Congress is empowered to raise may be manned by armed troops.

    Governments don’t have to document their “right” to bear arms, that is what governments ARE, they are naked force, George Washington said as much. Saying governments have a right to guns is like saying cars have a right to have wheels…

    “The [U.S.] Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals … it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government … it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen’s protection against the government.” Ayn Rand

     
  20. WELL,THOMAS JEFFERSON warned everyone,you take the trash out every TWENTY YEARS and hang their ass,but america said we love our government,they would never do the things the patriots say they would,BUT,THE LORD SAYS THEIR DEVILS,and they are,COMMIE DEVILS,and the people have let them go for so long now,THE END IS WAR IN THE COUNTRY,yes americans are so smart they’ll have to fight their own children,JUST like they were warned in the BIBLE it would happen..GET READY KIDS,THE USA IS FULL OF FOREIGN MILITARY,and they aren’t here to kiss your cheek and give you a birthday present,THEY WILL BE GOING DOOR TO DOOR,killing everyone….

     
  21. This Killer Kunt helped spread AIDS she is an Evil Jew Bitch Traitor taking Millions from Communist China Military thru her Jew husband Blum. The nazis should have Exterminated the Jews they really are the Spawn of Satan.

     
  22. 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.

     
  23. I don’t know why so many Jews are uber leftists who are anti-gun, pro-abortion, open borders, gay marriage, political correctness, multiculturalism Marxists.

     
  24. This must be a first,banning weapons by its weight.

     
  25. 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:

    https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-hCieCQLiuKA/XDAfyvbjeXI/AAAAAAADTgw/tUjG5lq2ByEgtLmuBbpF8_KK7UkiJuErQCLcBGAs/s1600/GUN%2B%25282%2529.jpg

     
  26. 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 people will need to be dealt with as well. If left unchecked, they’ll foment resistance and dissent until they’re removed.

    So what do we do about them? We’re looking at tens of millions of people, minimum. You can’t try them all… the courts could never handle it. Round ’em up and put them in FEMA camps? Then we’re as bad as they are. Martial law? Yeah, maybe for a couple of months patriots would put up with that, but long-term? I don’t think so.

    I hate to say it, but it looks like one way or another, this ends in civil war. If President Trump is unsuccessful, it’s coming. Patriots aren’t giving up their weapons – no way. If he is, the leftist remainder has to be dealt with. Again, probable civil war, just for a different reason.

    Me? I just want my freedom back. As cliché as it is, I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

    Colonial General John Stark gets credit for the famous saying on New Hampshire’s license plates: Live Free or Die. Most people don’t know the entire quote, which I agree with whole-heartedly: “Live free or die. Death is not the worst of evils”. General Stark was right then, and he’s still right today.

     
  27. The marxist are just pushing us closer to the time when americans revolt against these traitors,they can hide but we will find them.

     
  28. Well, that rather long list of Democraps that co-sponsor this bill will make a nice RECALL petition list…now wouldn’t it.

    Pass this along!

     
  29. 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 in the rest. But we understand that once populations are disarmed, GENOCIDE follows. Don’t say “It can’t happen here!” Oh Yes it CAN happen here, and it WILL, as it has happened at least 17 times around the world since 1800.
    Oh Well. We actually had enough people come out and vote for Trump. Enough people woke up. But can we have enough people STAY AWAKE??? That, to me, looks like a long and arduous uphill charge, with heavy cannons in tow.

     
    • Thanks, Steven, for reminding us that the first step in an oppressive, totalitarian government is to deny it’s people….or even just CERTAIN people, the right to bear arms—while favored others, whomever they may be…suffer no such policing. Go to any Holocaust Museum and follow the short steps it took to get to the concentration camps and gas chambers of WWII: it started with the regulation/government irradication of certain businesses, places of worship, and the revocation of the right to own a gun within a specific and targeted population. It progressed to the seizing of wealth and cultural treasures/redistribution to others (i.e. the favored…such as those in the government). Once any population is neutralized of wealth and self-defense against predators, a government, whatever….ANYTHING can and will happen to decimate the targeted population.

       
  30. FeinStain, is a Chinese Agent, corrupt Traitor, all her asset should be seize and she should be hung

     
  31. Diane, do you like scores of dead federal agents? Because this is how you get scores of dead federal agents.

     
  32. 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 to do that they have the option to leave voluntarily.

     
  33. 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.

    Who will prevent their rapes, beheadings and hanging when the darkies come?

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

     
  34. 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.
