Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 – Senator Diane Feinstein’s push to disarm the United States

by Skip

She unveiled her renewed Assault Weapon Ban that not only is going to hurt two vibrant companies here in NH (are you listening Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) – Sturm Ruger and Sig Sauer – but effectively render civilians unable to defend themselves in a multi-person home invasion.

“We have tried to learn from the bill. We have tried to recognize legal hunting rights. We have tried to recognize legal defense rights. We have tried to recognize the right of a citizen to legally possess a weapon. No weapon is taken from anyone. The purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time. Therefore, there is no sunset on this bill,”

Once again, we see a Progressive MORE than willing to punish law-abiding citizens as if they were criminals. No mention of the REAL reason for the Second Amendment – self-protection against a tyrannical government (as Progressives cannot even begin to fathom that their policies will end up as such as they are eroding individual Liberty and Freedom.  After all, as US Senator Schumer (or was it Durbin?) said “this isn’t about the Constitution”.

Of course not, it never is, is it?

The bill has not yet hit Thomas (it was supposed to be filed and online today) but here are some details.  The list of banned firearms are after the jump.  The Low Points:

  • Manufacture, transfer, or importation of new assault weapons
  • What is an assault rifle (redefining a real military term)?  Detachable magazine.  One of the following military features:
    • pistol grip
    • forward grip
    • adjustable, detachable or folding stock
    • barrel shroud
    • threaded barrel
    • grenade or rocket launcher
  • And yes, we now have a NEW “weenie legislator legal term” – an “assault pistol“: detachable magazine.  One of the following military features:
    • barrel shroud
    • threaded barrel
    • second pistol grip
    • accepting of a mag other than via the one allowed pistol grip
    • semi-automatic (if this is a “copy” of an automatic version)

  • But Wait!  another “weenie legislator legal term” – an “assault shotgun“:
    • detachable magazine
    • adjustable, detachable or folding stock
    • fixed magazine holding > 5 rounds
    • pistol grip
    • forward grip
    • grenade or rocket launcher
    • a revolving cylinder
  • Any firearm on the banned list that is to be bought by a “new owner” will require a  background check.  Process TBD.  Got a “high capacity” mag for that?  Cool – it still be yours after the sale – you cannot sell it (or give it, either).
  • Getting a new one?  You’ll be all set for the registration with a serial number and manufacture date to be engraved on it.
  • Magazines have a 10 round limit
  • Excludedfrom the ban:
    • antiques
    • weapons used by military, law enforcement and RETIRED law enforcement (Yo, Shurtleff, you be talking to Feinstein?)
    • manually operated: bolt, slide, pump (still looking for the actual text, but doesn’t this clash with the above military features (what a stupid phrase, btw)
  • Got an assault weapon?  Are you safely storing them?  Does this mean that I’m going to get a knock on the door and somebody is going to demand to go through my house
  • Got an assault weapon?  Be prepared to ante up $200 for each “offending scary looking weapon that is less powerful than a deer hunting rifle”, get a background check, get a mug shot, and get fingerprinted. Can you say “backdoor gun registration” quick as a whistle?
  • Your tax bucks will be passed out by the Feds so that local governments can do buy-backs (gee, didn’t know we had all that spare cash, Diane?  Or, what is the off-set you are proposing – domestic drones?)
  • NO bullet buttons, thumbhole stocks, bump stocks, or imported assault weapons
  • There is also a list of “2,258 legitimate hunting and sporting rifles” – still looking.  Nice to see that the real reason for the Second Amendment – as a protection against a tyrannical government (including our own) has gotten no mention at all.

She wants the current supply of ‘scary weapons’  to “dry up”; can we start a process of “drying up” Freedom sucking politicians who abuse lawful citizens?
