Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) laid out the conditions of her proposed assault weapons ban Thursday, saying it would prohibit 158 specifically named military-style firearms.
The purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time, Feinstein said. Therefore, there is no sunset on this bill.
Feinstein said the bill prohibits the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices that can accept more than ten rounds, but said it would not affect hunting or sporting firearms.
Instead, the bill protects hunters and sportsmen by protecting 2,200 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes, she said. They are by make and model exempted from the legislation
Finally, the bill subjects existing or grandfathered weapons to a background check in the event the weapon is sold or transferred
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.

Go F Yourself, Diane.
Unless they propose to prevent sales of replacement parts, this horse is long out of the barn and down the road.
I will not register,I will not comply.
Of course none of these specifically mention the primary right to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government. How curious...
What a brazen liar.
The founding fathers of our country were very, very clear. They understood exactly what the 2nd Amendment was for and even said outright in other documents that this amendment was critical to avoid tyranny! And they just extricated themselves from such tyranny.
Feinstein’s bill seeks to reestablish a tyrannical government. I WILL NEVER COMPLY.
Why cant we get a group of freepers together and shout down these tyrants at their press conferences? They are basically not meeting any type of civil resistance.
This Grandma Super Whackjob clearly has too much time on her hands. To waste all the time and taxpayer's money to put this lame brained crap together is absolutely criminal. This is going exactly nowhere and everybody (including the whackjobs) knows it. Won't even come up for a vote. Idiots!!
That document will do nothing more than increase the price of every single weapon listed.
WTF!!!!! Armalite M15 22LR Carbine?????? You have got to be kidding me???? A 22LR????? She can kiss my ASS!
Won’t pass the Senate let alone the house.
You're a liar, and a thief, and an oath-breaker, and you have no interest in protecting ANY legitimate right of We the People.
Dry up the supply. How?
Where do the cops and military (not to mention TSA, DHS, USPS, IRS, ATF, FBI, ...) get their guns?
As long as they continue to be manufactured, they will be available.
And that assumes current manufacturers — how about a hobby shop? Or those teenagers making and repairing AKs by hand in the hovels in Afgahnistan?
Darn it, I’m feel like I’m arguing with a pig. I’m getting dirty and he likes it.
This isn't about hunting, and you know it, you freaking tyrant.
