Feinstein’s “Gun Control” Law Goes For Broke, Treats Gun Owners As Criminals


It is more than likely going nowhere. Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, himself a supporter of 2nd Amendment rights (hey, one good mark for him), may not even bring it up for a vote, instead allowing it to languish in committee. And, if he does bring it up, he may not have the votes. And, if it somehow manages to pass, it’ll die in the House. That doesn’t matter to DiFi, who’s intent on adding massive restrictions to the guns law abiding citizens can own

(NRA) According to a Dec. 27th posting on Sen. Feinstein’s website and a draft of the bill obtained by NRA-ILA, the new ban would, among other things, adopt new definitions of “assault weapon” that would affect a much larger variety of firearms, require current owners of such firearms to register them with the federal government under the National Firearms Act, and require forfeiture of the firearms upon the deaths of their current owners. Some of the changes in Feinstein’s new bill are as follows:

The legislation would effectively ban any rifle and shotgun with a pistol grip.

It would ban any “semiautomatic, centerfire, or rimfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds,” except for tubular-magazine .22s.

It would also ban any handgun that has a fixed magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds.

Every magazine that holds more than 10 rounds must be stamped by the manufacturer. But, it also bans the manufacturing of any magazine that holds more than 10 rounds. Because 10 is safe, and 11 isn’t.

Any scary looking weapon assault rifle must be turned in to The Government upon death of the owner.

And then there is this

Requires owners of existing “assault weapons” to register them with the federal government under the National Firearms Act (NFA). The NFA imposes a $200 tax per firearm, and requires an owner to submit photographs and fingerprints to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), to inform the BATFE of the address where the firearm will be kept, and to obtain the BATFE’s permission to transport the firearm across state lines.

This treats people who legally purchased their scary looking weapons as criminals, regarding fingerprints and photos. And sure seems to retroactively levy a tax in violation of Article 1, Section 9, Clause 3, ex post facto laws.

No word on whether DiFi will do away with any armed security for herself and her office.
