Senate Coming After Guns: Feinstein Bill Comes After Most Handguns & Shotguns & Rifles

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), has started to outline the Senate’s plan to come after your guns, and it includes just about everything including handguns.

From the Senator’s website:

In January, Senator Feinstein will introduce a bill to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devises.

The Ban will include over 120 specifically named firearms and will include any gun that has a detachable magazine with one “military characteristic.” As we know from past attempts, these characteristics have nothing to do with the actual guns performance and are often only cosmetic. This means almost every modern gun on the market could be included in this ban.

Not only will the ban stop the sale, transfer and importation of these guns, but it could also go after existing guns that are already legally owned. According to the Senator’s website, all existing weapons would have to be registered under the new National Firearms Act. This would mean that everyone who now legally owns these guns would have to go through new background checks, fingerprinting, certification from local law enforcement and the registration of all firearms.

Glock Handgun

Here are the details that have been announced so far:

The Bill Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:

  • 120 specifically named firearms
  • Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic
  • Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds
  • Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
    • Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test
    • Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test
    • Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans
  • Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
    • Background check of owner and any transferee;
    • Type and serial number of the firearm;
    • Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
    • Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
    • Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

    Why do people think that guns kill people? In her statement she refers “dangerous guns”. Last time I checked, a gun cannot kill someone by itself, it take a “dangerous person” to do it. Introducing this bill and making it law will only hurt the law abiding gun owners; the criminals will still obtain them illegally? Do they really think a criminal will abide by this law???!?!?

      Jon you are so correct. If they managed to take away the guns the “people” that would use them in a crime, they would just find something else to use, because if store keepers don’t have guns for protection they could be robbed with a hammer,bat, knife, etc.

    What I get from this are a few things. First and foremost is if these firearms fall under the NFA then the government suddenly gets 200 bucks for everyone registering which helps their monetary issues. The second I get is that they will now be able to track people even more. The third is that it will create a larger black market of firearms that criminals, and normally law abiding citizens, will utilize.

    What those of us that believe in reliance and liberty need to do are stop being cry babies and band together like the liberals do. We need to gather en-mass to show “them” we’re not going to give away our liberties and let them take over.

    I will be standing at my state capital on inauguration day to protest the possibility of liberty being taken away. Not because I’m against obama, but because I’m against anything that can take my rights. I’m going to stand there, even by myself, to show this country you can make a stand.

They must think we are crazy! I can’t believe they’re wasting time in Washington devising these schemes when they should be working to better this country. They’re destroying it from within. It’s so time to remove and punish these worthless rats. It sickens me every day I read this kind of stuff. I propose a million man/woman march on DC in protest. NRA should head up something like this as soon as possible!!!! I’d rather see this through peacefully but I have a good feeling there’s going to be action taken. Key is doing it together as one massive body. I fought for my country in the military and these people better damned well start serving from their leather chairs with a little more dignity and uphold the Constitution I swore to defend. All they seem to be doing is destroying what countless others sacrificed their lives defending. It is simply disgraceful.

      Our liberty is already being taken away … read up on Patriot Act. The Feds have set up a fed police force under DHS that rivals the Gestapo in power. All local police agencies are now required to “partner” with DHS whenever they have an interest. In addition DHS police agencies have been put “above the law” by Patriot Act and do not need to follow the Bill of Rights in doing what the do … just like the Gestapo in Nazi Germany.

      Gun control is the next step in the slide towards tyranny. when the people are disarmed, they lose their power. The founding fathers put the Right to Bear Arms right after that of Freedom of Speech and Religion in the Bill of Rights. This shows how important they believed it to be! It was put there to allow the people to overthrow the govt if it became a tyranny plain and simple. Hitler also seized most guns in Nazi Germany back in the 30’s and boasted on being the first modern nation to implement national gun control.

      Look where it got them later on! By the way the same folks who are pushing this bill are trying to change the Senate Rules so that only a simple majority will pass it. They are seeking to change the rule requiring 60 votes or more in order to ram through stuff like this anti gun bill. Every one needs to contact their senators to voice their opposition to both.

      thank you.

    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. >From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated
    In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated
    Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
    You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
    Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!
    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
    With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’.
    During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
    If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends.
    Spread the word everywhere you can that you are a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!

    It’s time to speak loud before they try to silence and disarm us.
    You’re not imagining it, history shows that governments always manipulate tragedies to attempt to disarm the people~

      Thanks for the history lesson. Sadly however, it is too late for logic and reason. Our government has been taken hostage by a bunch of illogical, irrational individuals that blindly pursue emotional goals… If you really want to make a difference warn everyone. DO NOT REGISTER YOUR FIREARM OR THEY WILL TAKE IT FROM YOU! I have been warning everyone this is coming since I found out about it. Take my advice, claim your weapons as stolen or privately sold and then hide them. A time will come soon when you’ll want to defend yourself. We are waking up as a nation. Fist comes denial, we have been in this state of mind for several generations now. Ever since the assassination of Kennedy, everyone has felt it. You may deny it but eventually the TRUTH comes out. Eventually denial turns into anger. God help us when it reaches that stage. There are a lot of people that are coming out of denial and are angry as hell. Illuminati, what are you going to do when we all stand up angry? What are you going to do the day we come to take back this great nation? I am but one of many. We are LEGION. We are ALL Anonymous and we do not forget. The fact that you are still reading this tells me that you are one of us. Do not forgive the atrocities of the .001% for they are the ones that want to kill us.

    This bill that Feinstein intends to introduce is a 2 part ploy. State and Federal governments will recieve an awful lot of money for this-both from the taxpayer, and the taxpayers. They will also be in a position to force their will on millions of Americans, and this is only the start.No good can come of this and the best way, in my opinion, to resist this B.S. is to write your representitives and accurately tell them how you feel about this legislation, while at the same time, you are hiding every gun that you own in a safe place.

      I’ve been telling mine. And what I get in response is a ‘thanks for your opinion, but I’m going to keep my head up my ass on this issue’ email.

      They fail to realize the very real potential of a civil war triggered by gun confiscations, just like in Boston back when the American Revolution started. And they apparently don’t realize at all that in that war, they will be targets and their bodyguards will likely abandon them.

      Every physical letter you write to your congressmen equals something like 30,000 letters from people that have the same opinion but didn’t write, so a letter-writing campaign is logical.
      E-mails don’t count… and they disappear anyway. They can always turn off the fax machine.

      One other thing… no thinking legitimate member of law enforcement or military would dream of knocking on people’s doors and demanding their guns. Nobody is going to put himself at odds with at least 1/3 of all Americans. Even the foreign armies have done computer simulations and decided they won’t be participating. Our military has overwhelmingly stated they would leave their posts and go home to protect their families. If Obummer can’t wrangle the manpower, he can’t enforce.
      I think we all need to just quit paying taxes altogether. If we quit financing them, it really removes their power. Of course, they’ll just print more money.

          Church – in such a survival situation, I’d recommend a recurve. You can have extra strings in your pocket and change them out in two minutes. Can’t do that with your compound….

          And you should be easily able to get within bow range of anything that isn’t hunting for you. Then you steal what it has, right? Only the hunters will have night vision.

I been a survivor far longer than most have been alive…and you can bet the DHS has equipment that rivels mine on any of my good days…besides I do have a recurve and a long bow and have taken deer with both none the less my friend I’m grateful for the advice

      It allows ownership for those that already have them, but forbids new owners and manufacturing of new guns. A better question is “where will the police get new guns?” Or “Why is it okay for a person that already owns a gun to keep it, but not lawful for someone that doesn’t already own a gun to buy that exact same gun?”

      Rock you are absolutely right. that same situation occured in Engalnd after they banned gun ownership. a man shot 2 intruders in his home, one of which was attacking him with a tire iron. one died and the other was critically wounded. The man was convicted and sentenced to LIFE in prison for defending himself and his family! God be with us all, for we do have a fight ahead of us.
