Feinstein introduces sweeping ban on military-style weapons

January 25, 2013

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and a group of Senate Democrats on Thursday introduced legislation to ban the sale and manufacture of more than 150 types of semi-automatic weapons with military-style features.

The legislation also bans magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition and requires people who already own assault rifles to use secure storage and safety devices and bars them from selling high-capacity clips.

“No weapon is taken from anyone,” said Feinstein. “The purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time.”

Unlike the 1994 assault-weapons ban, there is no sunset provision in Feinstein’s newest gun-control bill.

The lawmakers introduced the bill at a press conference with law-enforcement groups supporting the legislation. Groups endorsing the bill include the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the Major Cities Chiefs Association, the Police Foundation, and the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators.

The co-sponsors include Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, whose home state of Connecticut last month witnessed one of the nation’s worst episodes of gun violence when an assailant killed 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary School with an M-4 Bushmaster assault rifle.

Feinstein acknowledged the bill would face stiff opposition in Congress.

  • While it was a tragedy to have innocent children murdered, the gun restriction (and eventual ban) is unfounded for what they are doing. The recent release of the coroner results are that the crazy used 4 hand guns (not the assult rifle that was claimed by the Democrats), and that the laws already on the books did nothing to deter or stop a determined crazy (not necessarily insane, it was done with intent and intelligent planning) act. Looking at where the worse crimes (especially gun incidents) occur are at those areas where the most stringent laws are on the books (though not usually carried out, most police forces are already overburdended with laws that they only can pick and choose which to enforce ‘after the fact’ of a crime!).
    If they are trying to remove weapons from law abiding citizens, that is all they will do. The criminals will continue to find access to ways to kill large numbers of civilians. (Some of the worse monsters in our society advocating violence are still free and preaching a modified version of hate: just look at Bill Ayres! He admits to bombing police and the government buildings, yet never was prosecuted. Thought there was no statute of limitation on attempted murder or terrorism!)
    This attempt to remove common citizens defense is another way for elites to further degrade the rest of us and eventually force servatude. Follow the Constitution and our founding or get the heck out and stop the NATIONAL SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS from destroying our country any more.

  • CTH says:

    Senator Dumbjead Feinstein’s big problem, like that of most progressives/democraPs/socialists/communists, is she holds the mistaken belief that she has superior intelligence and is therefore entitled/obligated to direct all aspects of the lives of the unwashed who are not as intelligent as she thinks she is. She and Barry obuttead and should be criminally charged for falsely swearing to protect and defend the constitution.
