Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- As we reported last week, U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), sponsor of the federal “assault weapon” and “large” magazine “ban”  of 1994-2004, is asking President Barack Obama to direct the BATFE to reinterpret a provision of the Gun Control Act of 1968 to prohibit the importation of various semi-automatic firearms and their parts.

In a letter to Obama, the text of which was included in an article published by the Daily Caller last Thursday, Feinstein said that, “at a minimum,” the BATFE should:

prohibit importation of all semiautomatic rifles that can accept, or be readily converted to accept, a large capacity ammunition magazine of more than 10 rounds . . . .  prohibit semiautomatic rifles with fixed magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds, prohibit the importation of the frame or receiver of any prohibited rifle . . . . prohibit the practice of importing assault rifles in parts ….  prohibit the use of a “thumbhole” stock . . . . and prohibit the importation of assault pistols.

This new request is similar to the type of failed legislation Feinstein introduced in Congress last year (which would have imposed the biggest gun ban in American history), only this time she’s trying to achieve some of her ends through soliciting the president’s use of executive authority over firearm imports.

One might think it doesn’t make sense for Feinstein to agitate for gun control in an election year, especially one in which a number of anti-gun senators are going to be facing the voters. However, she is religiously committed to gun control and has been for a long time.

Please take action NOW to stop Feinstein’s proposed restrictions on the importation of firearms.  Please contact your U.S. Senators TODAY, and tell them to OPPOSE Sen. Feinstein’s request that the Obama Administration “take the necessary regulatory steps” to ban the importation of various semi-automatic firearms and their parts.
