If they are banning these by name, couldn’t the manufactures just change the name...

A single shot Thompson Contender would be banned? Why?

The list is ridiculous.
HK G3 is not mentioned, No Windham AR15 (ex bushmaster)
Where is the venerable Remington Model 8?

Why are Saiga 12 hicaps on the list but no Saiga 20’s or 410’s?.

As to the pistols, they are all ridiculously inaccurate.
To heavy to aim and to much recoil to be of any real use.

How can they define a CETME as an assault rifle when they specifically refer to it as a CETME Sporter in the bill?

HK G3 is a select-fire gun, ergo it’s already regulated.

It says “all . . . . . including. . . . . .” meaning those listed are merely examples of the type to be banned. Make no mistake, they intend to have them all.

Because someone saw a movie some time where someone had one of these and killed ten thousand enemy solders without reloading. It seems all they know about guns they learned in movies.

If memory serves me correctly, the G41 is the semi only version although they did have a semi G3 I’m not sure it was imported. They had to change the designation to import (I’m sure I’ll be corrected on every detail on that).

Sounds like Sen. Dianne Feinstein has declared a war of attrition where she wins by taking these off of the market.

Once a gun is banned by name it is eternally banned, even if the offensive cosmetics that make it an “assault weapon” are removed.

When everything is illegal it won’t matter what you own. They are all illegal. Why not go all the way with a sound suppressed short barreled selective fire rifle? To the gun grabbers its the same as a Saiga or a Bushmaster may be even a Ruger 10/22.

I just double checked and I am completely wrong. The G41 was a later version that was select fire. G3 was available in semi only.

As usual the Dems push too far, so that when the Reps push back, the Dems can still get what they want after renegotiating.

They always ask for to much as a distraction.

The devil is in the details. The 1911 could be banned.

At any rate, the far more troubling bits of this bill are,
National gun registry and no sunset clause.

The Bolt action Thomson Icon would also be banned.

While the language states all Thompson rifles would be banned, it also provides a specific exclusion for "Any firearm manually operated by a bolt, pump, lever or slide action." Trial courts would probably err on the side of confiscation and the citizen being a criminal.

Funny thing.
School kids used to be able to order MI Garands and M1 Carbines in the back of Popular Mechanics, and for a nominal fee The US Postman would hand deliver the goods to little Jimmy with a smile.

Notice this list is `By Name’. I’ll bet they have another section that’s `By functionality’

Yeah, I noticed they're going after the 5.56mm and .223 family. Looks like they also listed the FN Herstal 5.7x28mm line, but neglected (unless I completely missed it) the Five-Seven pistol.

The FN Herstal 5.7x28mm is the FN Five Seven.
Now that one is accurate.

The rifle based pistols are not.
If they had an attachable stock or underfolding stock they would be of some limited use.

That’s why the used the phrase AK-47 TYPE including. They are trying to use the word type to prevent that. What the heck is the legal meaning of type? Is it defined by specific patent or copyright or is it what ever they want it to mean later on?
