Feinstein And Friends Quietly Introduce a Major Gun Control Bill During the Shutdown
townhall.com ^ | Jan. 10, 2019 | Beth Baumann

Posted on 01/10/2019 6:07:43 PM PST by PROCON

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) on Wednesday introduced legislation to, once again, push another assault weapons ban, similar to legislation that passed back in 1994.

~~~~SNIP~~~~

Key provisions:

Bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name. Owners may keep existing weapons.

Bans any assault weapon that accepts a detachable ammunition magazine and has one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock. Owners may keep existing weapons.

Bans magazines and other ammunition feeding devices that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which allow shooters to quickly fire many rounds without needing to reload. Owners may keep existing magazines.

Exemptions to bill:

The bill exempts by name more than 2,200 guns for hunting, household defense or recreational purposes. The bill includes a grandfather clause that exempts all weapons lawfully possessed at the date of enactment.

Other provisions:

Requires a background check on any future sale, trade or gifting of an assault weapon covered by the bill.

Requires that grandfathered assault weapons are stored using a secure gun storage or safety device like a trigger lock.

Prohibits the transfer of high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Bans bump-fire stocks and other devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at fully automatic rates.

“hopefully FineSwine soon assumes room temperature herself.”

Yes, like her “sister” Ruth Buzy Ginsburg over at the SCOTUS, she’s also 85. Maybe the Grim Reaper will make it a two-fer in 2019 and “take” both of them.

What we really need is reciprocity. Politicians and their bodyguards should be banned from carrying firearms.

How about a Bill requiring the proper vetting of the people hired by Congressional members, making sure they’re not spies for Communist China, or Middle Eastern hooligans.

Yep. Both of these commie POSs cannot be gone soon enough.
They’re being kept alive by the very best medical care in the entire world, while they stuck the “unwashed masses” with odongoCare for which the exempted themselves...real nice.
Yeah, hell will have to enlarge itself to take these two vile birds in.
Hopefully the Reaper has been already dispatched, and we’ll get lucky enough for the two-fer you mentioned. Really, why make the trip from hell twice when he can get two big old juicy ones for the travel price of one?

Wait a minute -

Diane Fineswine had a Chinese spy in her midst for the better part of two decades, some of which she was a ranking member of the intelligence committee. The Chinese are accused of stealing technology and other information, thus inflaming the trade situation between the USA and China.

WHY is DiFi not investigated, indicted, tried, and convicted?? She can share the same cell as Hillary.

What are they going to do when no one registers their firearms or magazines? Ownership at the time the law was passed requires registration. Not many people are STUPID enough to see what their plan is.
