Senator Dianne Feinstein, a Democratic representative from California, introduced a new bill that would ban high-capacity magazines and assault-style weapons. However, this carefully crafted bill would literally cater to elitists, exempting 2,200 types of guns that are used by government officials.
The bill actually will stop the manufacture, importation and sale of 158 military-style firearms, which are specifically named in her bill, in addition to magazines that hold in excess of 10 rounds. Her bill also includes provisions for background checks.
Where does this leave the average American? The following types of weapons and imposed regulations would fall under the Feinstein gun control ban:
• Semiautomatic rifles that offer a detachable magazine and include at least one military feature, which includes: forward grip; pistol grip; detachable, folding or telescoping stock; rocket or grenade launchers; threaded barrel; or barrel shroud.
• Semiautomatic pistols that offer a detachable magazine and include at least one of the following military features: second pistol grip; threaded barrel; barrel shroud; semiautomatic version of a type of automatic firearm; or the ability to accept a detachable magazine outside of the weapon’s pistol grip.
• All semiautomatic handguns and rifles that feature a fixed magazine with 10 or more round capacities.
• All semiautomatic shotguns that offer a detachable, folding or telescoping stock; fixed magazine with five or more round capacity; pistol grip; accepts a detachable magazine; grenade or rocket launcher; forward grip; or a revolving cylinder.
• All ammunition feeding-style devices that accept more than 10 rounds, including strips, magazines and drums.
• The bill bans several after-market modifications, including slide or bump fire stocks, bullet buttons and thumbhole stocks.
• The bill specifically bans the importation of large-capacity magazines and assault weapons.
• A background check would be required for all transfers or sales, including grandfathered assault weapons. This check would be run through a state agency system or the FBI, depending upon states’ individual preferences.
• The transfer or sale of large-capacity ammunition weapons would be strictly prohibited.
• The states could utilize federal Byrne JAG grant funds to offer buy-back programs for grandfathered weapons.
• Grandfathered firearms would fall under a safe storage requirement.
• Any of the aforementioned weapons would require the date of manufacture and serial number to be engraved into the weapon.
