If you don't think the anti-gun nuts in our government want to take away your guns, just have a look at the proposed legislation by Senator Dianne Feinstein below. This is the summary directly from Feinstein's website. What is scary about this kind of ridiculous legislation is that while politicians will pat themselves on the back and congratulate themselves if it passes, making them think they've actually done something, very little will actually stem the violence in our schools and society.
Anti-gun politicians like Feinstein think their arbitrary inclusion of certain characteristics actually constitute a "military style" weapon, therefore there is come kind of danger to society if these guns are sold to the public. But when you consider that a simple pistol grip on a rifle, or a flash suppressor, or a bayonet mount, or a telescoping stock amongst a few other characteristics makes an assault weapon in the eyes of those that hate the second amendment, you can see that we really are in danger of losing our right to bear arms as guaranteed in the Constitution.
If you read below the summary of Feinstein's proposed assault weapons ban, you begin to realize how dangerous this really is. It states right in the first part that it will "Ban the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:...certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one or more military characteristics." That means if you have a hand gun that that accepts a detachable magazine and has one other military characteristic, it is an assault weapon and it will be illegal to own under this proposed law.
Does anyone still want to insist no one is coming for your guns?
The following is a summary of the Senator Dianne Feinstein 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 â€œthumbhole stocksâ€ and â€œbullet buttonsâ€ to address attempts to â€œwork aroundâ€ 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.
