ALERT: Legislation Details: Senate to Ban Hundreds of Semiautomatic Rifles, Handguns, Shotguns, Magazines

For anyone who may have thought Senator Feinstein and her colleagues in Congress were bluffing about coming firearms legislation that would restrict the sale, transfer and possession of certain firearms, think again.

A summary of the proposed legislation has been made available, and it’s a whopper.

Among outright banning 120 ‘assault’ related firearms (such as AR-15′s and AK-47′s), the bill will also target any weapon that utilizes a “detachable magazine,” as well as any magazine with a capacity of over ten rounds, which would include semi-automatic handguns and shotguns.

Moreover, if you already own a firearm or modification that ends up on the ban list, you will be required under Federal law to register that gun, complete with a background check, fingerprinting and local law enforcement verification.

Those who have recently purchased firearms that would fall under the ban may soon find Federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) at their door looking to confiscate ‘illegal’ weapons or engage in home searches for illegal accessories like ‘high capacity’ magazines (over 10 rounds), flash suppressors, pistol grips, and bullet buttons (a feature designed to circumvent ‘fixed’ magazine laws in states like California).

The following is a summary of the proposed Assault Weapons Legislation:

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:

  • 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
  • Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.

Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:

  • Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment
  • Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes and
  • Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons

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

(Also available in PDF)

What Is an Assault Rifle? (You’ve probably been lied to):

Ammunition, namely the purchase of bulk ammunition, has not been mentioned in the legislation summary. However, previous reports indicate that the purchase of large amounts of ammunition through the internet and directly from dealers may also be in Congress’ sights.

Are Americans prepared to give up their guns?

In Los Angeles, where millions of residents depend on government support to feed their families and receive healthcare, hundreds of cars lined up for hours for a local buy-back program that promised to exchange guns for $100 grocery gift cards. Thousands of handguns, rifles, and antique firearms were turned in – for food.

The lock-down is coming and it’s going to start when Congress reconvenes on January 3, 2013.

Many Americans, who have no concept of why the Second Amendment exists in the first place, will accept it without protest.

    Their is going to be a lot of dead ATF, police officers and federal agents. That I can promise. Especially if I catch them doing it.

    • Jean

      Time to use explosives… On their families.

      If these people are too stupid to protect themselves, they’ll want to protect their families; they can see the mirror image of themselves, it’s all just, “collaterol damage.”

      Going to be an ugly place really soon, people will have to understand that this country has been sold down the river. My parents let it happened, even CHEERED it – and they were “Conservatives” (Republicans.)

      • John34

        You mean Neo-Con Conservatives…

        • Jean

          No, I mean hardcore REPUBLICAN CONSERVATIVES, dyed-in-the-wool Irish/Italian Roman Catholics.

          They existed before the concept of NeoCon. And they turn a blind eye to the hypocrisy of the party. And their own…

        Flammable fluids will be a good response too.

  • johnd34

    There is no way in hell I would give my weapon for them to fingerprint or put a chip in which is exactly what they will do. All newer weapons sold will have the chips in them. (Yahoo news)

    • Rick34

      It was on CNN not yahoo. I think I posted the link below if it gets approved. Mirco chipping and stamping.

  • http://T Evie

    These same laws will of course apply to government and military, fair is fair. Chips can be changed.

    • Rick34

      Its time to snap out of your dream world buddy we are at war. you better shoot them down even if you see your neighbors being swat in, because your next. Don’t be stupid enough to follow through what they say, you will just give up everything and in that case hand them over everything.

  • Rick34

    While you screwing around and I tried calling you twice. If you give or anyone is stupid enough to give their gun up for micro chipping and stamping. You just gave away your freedoms, if anyone gives up their gun period has signed away their own death.
    “My suggestion help your neighbor to stop it. Make sure you do it by force if you see it happen in your town.
    You people better help each other out, because you WILL BE NEXT ON THE LIST.. Watch for the road blocks out of the gun ranges and so forth. They will take your weapon.

    (iii) Operates the business as if sensible gun laws were in place (this may turn out to be a wise investment in future-proofing the company): discontinuing sales of the most egregious assault weapons and modifying others as necessary so they cannot take huge-volume clips; offering to buy back all Freedom Group assault weapons in circulation; micro-stamping weapons for easy tracking; and providing price discounts for buyers willing to go through a background check and register in a database available to law enforcement.

    Lessons fom the Middle East I see can and will be employed here by freedom fighters on U.S. soil to include IED’s, EFP’s, sniper attacks, ambushes, etc. This is OUR country, not a model for a new Nazi Germany.

    • Rick25

      I’m starting to like ya all already, nothing wrong with bating a ambush using one of their kind.

  • I-gor

    I Christopher Parrett, as an American, as a military veteran, and as a father, pledge the following:

    I Pledge to never disarm, and in particular, to never surrender my
    military pattern, semi-automatic rifles (and full capacity magazines,
    parts, and ammunition that go with them), regardless of what
    illegitimate action is taken by Congress, the President, or the courts.

    I also pledge to pass on those
    military pattern rifles to my children and my children’s children, as
    well as the full capacity magazines, parts, and ammunition to needed to
    use them, regardless of what illegitimate action is taken by Congress,
    the President, or the courts. As Founding Father Tench Coxe said, while
    attempting to allay the fears of critics of the proposed Constitution:

    The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America
    from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths,
    entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible
    army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they
    not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man
    against his own bosom?

    Congress have no power to disarm
    the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the
    soldier, are the birth-right of an American… [T]he unlimited power of
    the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state
    governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands
    of the people. – Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    And that “power of the sword” – those “terrible implements of the
    soldier,” includes the people’s battle rifles and carbines – their M1As,
    their FN-LARs, their HK 91s, their Grandfathers’ M1 Garand, their AK
    47s, their ARs and M4s, etc. – all of the weapons listed as being
    targeted for Feinstein’s new and improved “Assault Weapons Ban.”

    The whole point of the Second Amendment is to preserve the military
    capacity of the American people – to preserve the ability of the people,
    who are the militia, to provide for their own security as individuals,
    as neighborhoods, towns, counties, and states, during any emergency,
    man-made or natural; to preserve the military capacity of the American
    people to resist tyranny and violations of their rights by oath breakers
    within government; and to preserve the military capacity of the people
    to defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and
    domestic, including those oath breaking domestic enemies within
    government. It is not about hunting, and at its core, the Second
    Amendment is not really even about self-defense against private
    criminals. It is about self-defense against public criminals – against
    tyrants, usurpers, and foreign invaders. (and that is the whole point of
    the crucial upcoming film, Molon Labe).

    Above all other
    firearms currently available to the American citizen, modern military
    pattern, semi-automatic rifles provide that military capacity.
    Protecting the keeping and bearing of such arms of military utility is
    the heart and soul of the Second Amendment. Thus, any attempt to ban
    their possession, sale, purchase, or transfer, is an attempt to disarm
    the American people.

    Nor will I surrender my accurate, scoped,
    bolt action rifles, which are also great force multipliers of military
    utility in the roles of sniper and marksman. Invaders, tyrants and
    usurpers fear the sniper and marksman for good reason, and millions of
    American hunters have the well practiced field-craft and marksmanship
    skills to serve in those rolls most effectively. We must preserve their
    means of doing so, including preserving our .50 caliber sniper rifles,
    our .338 Lapua’s, our .300 Win Mags, and other powerful, long-range
    capable calibers.

    Nor will I surrender my semi-automatic
    pistols with full capacity magazines, which provide me with the capacity
    to effectively defend against close range, sudden attack.

    I
    will not disarm, regardless of what law is passed by the oath breakers
    in Congress, or signed into law by the oath breaker in the White House,
    and I WILL pass on to my children every terrible implement of the
    soldier currently in my possession.

    Further, I will ask my
    children to also pledge to never surrender those family arms and
    equipment, regardless of what illegitimate, Bill of Rights violating law
    is passed by the oath breakers in Washington DC, and regardless of
    whatever any oath breaking judge may rule.

    Further, I pledge to
    refuse compliance with any and all laws that attempt to strip me and my
    children of those arms, the full capacity magazines needed to load and
    fire them, or the parts and ammunition needed to keep them firing. I
    will use nullification, civil disobedience, and active resistance
    against all such laws. I will nullify, disobey, and resist as an
    individual, and I will work with my neighbors to nullify, disobey, and
    resist as towns, counties, and states. We will not disarm, we will not
    comply, and we will resist.
    Further, I pledge to refuse to vote for,
    and to actively work to purge from office any elected official, of any
    party, who violates their oath of office by supporting, endorsing, or
    voting for any law, action, or decree that attempts to disarm me, my
    children, or my children’s children of any of the above noted arms. I
    pledge to root the oath breakers out, in a scorched earth policy. I will
    not buy into the “lesser of two evils” con game, and regardless of what
    party an oath breaking politician is in, and regardless of the outcome
    of elections, that oath breaker will not get my vote, ever again, once
    they betray my trust and violate their oath by voting for an assault
    weapons ban or any other attempt to curtail my right to bear arms.

    Finally, I pledge to defend myself, my neighbors, my town, county, and
    state, against any attempt to forcibly disarm them pursuant to any
    “assault weapons ban” or any other illegitimate “law” passed by oath
    breakers within Congress, or pursuant to any illegitimate order, action,
    or decree by the oath breaker within the White House. We will not
    disarm. We will resist. And if given no other choice but to fight or to
    submit to abject tyranny, we will fight, just as our forefathers in the
    American Revolution fought against the tyrants, usurpers, and oath
    breakers of their day.

    If we are presented with the “choice” of
    submission to tyranny or fighting in defense of our natural rights, we
    will fight, as our forefathers fought, when the British Empire attempted
    to disarm them and confiscate the military pattern arms, ammunition,
    and supplies of their time. We will make the same choice as Patrick
    Henry made, when he rejected “peace” purchased at the price of chains
    and slavery, and said “I know not what course others may take, but as
    for me, give me liberty, or give me death!” I too choose liberty or
    death.

    I hereby reaffirm my oath to defend the Constitution
    against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and pledge my life, my
    fortune, and my sacred honor in defense of the principles of liberty
    enunciated in our Declaration of Independence, for which our forefathers
    spilled their blood. We will not let the Republic fall without a fight.

      Go to blacklistednews.com and their is a link their with the assault ban contact ur senator through that link and mail him exactly what you said. That should make it clear for them.

    We’ll see how they fare against a .50 cal BMG.

    • SKIP

      The new COR-BON Lapua .338 is rated at 5300fps velocity and .338 rifles are MUCH easier to handle than the .50s. Not knocking the .50s but I DO know how much they weigh and it may not seem like much carrying it to the car and then the range but schlepp one for many miles and it gains 3 pounds of weight for every mile walked with it.

  • OzDog

    Looks like your going the way we have gone here in Aus. By owning a firearm here you basically give up any right to privacy. The police can enter your property ANYTIME they want and search your whole property to make sure your firearms are kept under lock and key. Aus is just 1 huge nanny state where you MUST look to the government to protect you.
    Stand up for your rights, while you still have some left

    “THEY” will be wearing very good body armor (UPPER BODY ARMOR) when THEY come for your weapons so use a shotgun to blast their legs first and legs are a very vulnerable spot here in Afghanistan too. THEN the tap shop so at least HE/SHE will not be involved in your murder.

    • http://nelageek.com Jackie

      There is no body armor that is going to stop a .50 cal. Even if it stopped it, you’d still wish you were dead.

      • SKIP

        Not everyone is going to have a .50 of any make, I suppose you know how much those things cost and the ammo isn’t cheap either. The .50s are also heavy and generally unwieldy and normally used in prone supported positions, a position not normally used in one’s home at the door. No offense meant.

  • OKRambler

    Well, if they start using Microchips in Gun’s next it will be Microchips in Human’s so the Government will know where you are, at all times.

  • Jean

    Thinking EMPs might be a good start. There are cheap plans available on the internet; we could easily make the dead-short approach a re-usable system, I think, and no longer reliant on consumable black-powder or explosive-based systems. Demolish the communication infrastructure, too.

    In addition to direct targeting the enforcement agents, cut the backbone of communications with EMPs, and cut their travel capacity to nil. Could be interesting and useful.
    (“May you never live in interesting times” kind of interesting.)

    • SKIP

      There may be cheap plans on the internet but ENORMOUS amounts of power is required to generate any useful pulse, power that is not available to the general public.

    • jeff

      the emps are useless on new electronic designs because of the shielding that encapsulates the electronics

  • agmand

    So, the lovely lady, Feinstein, who believes it is OK to take $20 billions from US citizens YEARLY to keep the folks in Israel in all the UZIs, Galils, M16s, aircraft and missiles, etc. they need, now believes Americans should give up ALL of theirs …
    I just don’t see it happening.
    The founding fathers knew REAL WELL what they were doing … over 200 years ago!

    • Jean

      They had a few wars under their belts, and a lot of unrest as well.
      We have a pacifier shoved in our mouth and our @$$, and keep switching them.

      BIG difference. ;-)

  • Vitorino Batalim

    My fellow Americans. Since long ago I have advised you what Zionists Nazi Fascit are doing to USA to assume the full control of the NATION and most of you didn’t listen to me. Zionists Nazi Fascists have already total control over American institutions but not over Civil Society. I have told you that Zionists have made all those shootings and assassinations, mainly children to get emotional support to ask for robery of civil guns and its free sale to be forbbiden. Look who is pressing and proposing legislation o get all that. Feinstein and her supporters are all Zionists Nazi Fascists.Americans, please open your eyes and wake up. They begin fobbiding some guns and shooting are to be contiunued by the Zionists until civil guns are completely forbbiden. Believe me.

  • Mary

    Remember, this is just a proposal and is a FAR way from actually becoming law. Yes, we can and must fight it, and I will with all my strength. However, this bill will leave many red-state Dem Senators cold and I cannot seem them supporting it. It will also never pass in the House. What I see as the real danger is Obama and his executive orders. So don’t act like this is a done deal yet – there’s plenty of fighting to go on over this and it may still just die in the Senate. Let’s instead push back HARD with letters and phone calls and assertive (but polite) confrontations with local radio and newspapers and with postings on social media. Go onto lib blogs and engage the ignorant with facts and true stories of self defense. Take the fight to THEM and put them on the defensive! But please, if and when you do dialogue on these lib blogs, stay rational and factual and avoid the insults and smears they will definitely engage in. We are in the right and we must not stoop to their level. So onward to the battle for the 2nd Amendment! We will NOT give in, but we MUST engage with the ignorant sheep around us.

  • Cody

    Even if they could get this stuff to pass and the lawyers at the top go along with it, you forget a lot of the ATF, FBI and other local and federal law enforcement officials possess these weapons, my dad being one of them. If it comes to pass I think the law makers are going to have to come and get the weapons themselves because the door kickers and guys on the street won’t have any part of it.

  • riversideCA

    Better find out what Iran used to ha
    ck drones

  • your so lucky

    try looking into the gun laws in Australia where semi auto rifles are illegal in some states or new Zealand where any semi auto center fire with a pistol grip or detachable mag over 7 rounds need a endorsement on your firearms license. and yes in both country’s you MUST have a fire arms license to possess a fire arm. its not a rite but a privilege. Americans take it for granted,you with your liberal laws, holding onto your out dated “constitutional rite” to bear arms. how sad that some ones talking about bringing you in line with the rest of the world,hay in 100 years you may even adopt the metric system.

    1st of the gun list is from mw2. 2nd why would you need a m240,RPD, vector, or a mg4.
