USA –-(Ammoland.com)- New information about U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein’s promised new gun “control” legislation that seeks to ban “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” ammunition magazines has just been released.

The California Democrat shares a summary of her proposed bill, entitled “Summary of 2013 Feinstein Assault Weapons Legislation,” on her Senate website. And by the looks of things, it seeks more than just bans. From Senator Feinstein’s website:

Summary of 2013 legislation: Following is a summary of the 2013 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

Note that part about “requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act.”

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

The discussion of the bill summary can be found on her website here. A a .pdf of the bill summary is here.

    1. You need to take part in a contest for one of the finest blogs on the web.
      I am going to highly recommend this blog!

    2. No one try to take your guns away, your fanatic love for weapons is a very sick kind of love. all what obama want is to stop u to shoot children down. thats what the crazy people do. no one can stop them, only a new law. i know, american peaple are scared of the own history. cause a lot of people dont like american. but now one will come to kill u. just the crazy american people who get guns easy. about the fanatic terorist, it is the same, only a law, could stop them…

    3. Dave S. Constitutional attorney Stewart Rhodes will explain it for you.

      …”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.

      . Thus, any attempt to ban their possession, sale, purchase, or transfer, is an attempt to disarm the American people.”

    4. Its amazing how NRA membership is going up, wish all the freeloaders (gun owners who weren’t members)had joined BEFORE the election. The extra cash could have swayed the election, but people don’t think it will happen to them. Its ok if its someone elses guns, magazines or rights. Write, call or fax YOUR representative to give your opinion on this issue. Keep the info clean, concise and above all no profane language, that will get your response put in outgoing trash pile.

    5. The gun genie is out of the bottle; has been for centuries. That wacko could have taken my S&W 357 revolver with a box of 50 loose rounds and done the same as he did with what he did. I am a retired master gunsmith. I’ve seen and handled thousands of firearms. I have yet to see, or even hear, of one jumping off a table all by itself and shooting someone. I’m also part Native American, and the aforementioned wackjob could have taken my tomahahawk and done the same thing. OMG, is an Assault Hawk Ban next? Seriously, the Left just wants to disarm us because their Hippy-Dippy “Can’t we all just get along” programs ain’t working. We live in a dangerous world full of dangerous people, and I’m proud to quote Wayne LaPierre:”The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.”

    6. I just wrote both my senators on the assalut weapopns ban. I mentioned aboput the $200 tax she has placed in it for each firearm. I mentioned that I didn’t feel it was correct in charging me a price for my freedom when we have the second amendment. This bill is too far reaching into a individuals privacy. Fingerprints, photographs. They already have this on me due to my CWP. I mentioned that if anything just have a exchange program for your high capacity magazine for a five round magazine and nothing more. These rifles in this bill are very exspensive to purchase and I personally don’t feel anyone will surrender them willing. I have followed Diane on her political agenda from the beginning, she has always been for banning firearms of all types.

    7. I have seen so much violence on television that portray criminals achieving their violent crimes in different ways. Yes it is only fiction, Mr. Lapierre’s statement about video games and music being responsible for the influence of real life crimes of violence. In his defense I must say that he is correct. I have served in the Navy for 14 years and witnessed our destructive nature in other countries, including our own country, I have seen teenagers waiting at game stops for the latest Call of Duty games. The online play with these games allows the player to kill human figures posing as enemy’s   The games also allow them to communicate with each other. I have listened in on some of these conversations. Some the things that I heard just creeped under my skin and the tone of voices sounded like kids under the age of 13 and 10. The point I’m trying to make with this our generations are more and more influenced to a violent society through our own media. Parents who do not have time or patience for firearms don’t teach their kids and young adults about the life’s responsibilities when it comes to firearms. Adam Lanza made his decision to inflict fear and devastation to a young generation without blink of an eye who knows what was going through his mind. The firearm of choice that he used has made it’s mark in society as a favorite amongst sport shooters, hunters, collectors. Criminals have used any type of firearm or sharp weapons to carry out their violent tasks, mentally ill people who choose to or become manipulated to perform violent crimes use anything they can get. The AK47, SKS, Semi-auto UZI, and the other high capacity firearms that are semiautomatic can cause equally if not more collateral damage in mass shootings.

      To ban one type of firearm because of its reputation in violent crimes is like saying stop making fast cars or motorcycles that have a reputation for unrecoverable accidents when driven by an inexperienced driver. Yes cars and firearms are two separate objects but when compared with responsible operators, violent crimes and deathly accidents are almost none existent.

      As an owner of firearms I do promote that certain firearm laws must be in our society to keep order, safety and responsible use of them. Creating more laws and banning a firearms characteristics or ownership, will only create different ways for the mentally ill and criminals to find another firearm or a way to achieve mass casualties in a public setting. Background checks are being performed by firearm salespeople  as directed by the federal government. Private sales; however, are not held to the mandated background check and this is where the ability to gain ownership of all sorts of firearms that are by far more destructive than an AR15. I would say any violent crime committed with a firearm that was purchased privately. The seller of the firearm shall be held partially responsible as well and charged with selling a firearm without a federal firearm license. This will put more control into the hands of firearm sales in firearm shops. People who wish to sell a firearm can do so by consignment  sale at a firearm shop. We can maintain our firearm rights and help reduce the ability for mentally ill people and criminals from obtaining firearms illegally. The next option I suggest is the promotion of permits to carry a firearm. This will permit anyone without a history of mental illness and violent crime to purchase a firearm plus it puts responsibility in there hands to maintain a higher standard of safe firearm use. I would also like to suggest that firearm safety and responsibility be taught in our schools to our younger generations and teenagers that lack the guidance from their parents. This will promote an awareness of what firearms can do both good and bad. Lets look at this with a view to a less violent future that we as a society can live with firearms.

      My heart goes out to all victims that fell to violent crimes in mass shootings and individual incidents across our nation. We as parents need to be more involved in our kids lives and ensure their security and deter violent atmospheres, we need to improve our knowledge and awareness of mentally ill people, we need to improve our vigilance towards violent criminals, and we need to improve our education of firearms to our younger generations. Placing control on private firearm sales and enabling licensed firearm dealers to carry out their federal policies.

      When the first right of freedom is written off you bet more will follow. Then where I your freedom huh? Who then do we follow? Enough of the BS emotional decision making and look at actual facts.

      Our Goverment has lied to us and conspired to control us with greed and insensible political power. IMHO and not just mine, the rash of mass shootings in organized public places are locations that they know will cause emotionl upset and inflict fear into our minds. So we will back up said conspirators to force powerful politicians into decisions based on a lies and greed. No legislation is passed unless something can be benefited on it that is behind the curtain.

    8. they can’t do this it’s unconstitutional.my friend in the army said that he was swarn in to protect the constitution.and the right to bear arms is the second amendment. so that if he wanted to be could do what ever he wanted to do to senator Diane be cause she is threatening the constitution.

    9. Dave SThe true revolution would be if responsible gun owners and the NRA would come up with some reasonable regulations. No. what that would be is caving into stupidity. You left turds are always pointing out your superior intellect so why is it that the left has no idea what the Second Amendment means. Next we already do lived in an armed camp and who cares what supreme court judges interpret its what the founding said. As for a revolution lets also do away with equal rights, freedom of speech, 16 th amendment and entitlements too.

    10. Feinstein, Obama, Biden, Reid, Clinton, Boxer, Bloomberg, Emanuel are all dangerous, left liberal anti-gun zealots, they all are wealthy, powerful and can intimidate, force and make the weaker minded, easily brain washed and swayed to their Dictating, left liberal thinking and making the weak minded, all jump and obey and be happy to do it.. Those left liberals anti-gunners are mesmerizers’, smooth talkers, but yet they are conniving, convincing controllers, like, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin and all other Dictators in the past, that were able to talk and convenience the citizens in their countries to accept having their guns being banned, taken away and those citizens were turned into prisoners, slaves with no Rights, in their own land and all were left defenseless, helpless and lost, making many millions of them, being eliminated..

    11. Here’s some advice for all you who will voluntarily give up your guns: When you go to turn in that M1 Carbine or M1 Garand or M14 you lovingly restored with hard work and lotsa money, cut the damn thing up into 5 or 6 pieces. Use a large cutting saw or cutting torch. Then give it to them in a box. Why? Because the cop that collects your gun in one piece will take it home and put on his wall. Don’t think so? Thats what happened in New Orleans after Katrina.

    12. These communist b–c–s and b–t–ds lie in wait and plot and conspire constantly while awaiting these horrifying catastrophes to dehumanize and enslave very man woman and child in the country with the sole exception of themselves and their own . We need to pass laws charging TREASON against anyone and everyone who ever considers introducing any legislation that is even REMOTELY unconstitutional with even more special emphasis on the Bill of Rights granted by GOD and Natures GOD as so stated in said constitution .

    13. “A system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie.” – Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

    14. Dave S.: Once again you apologists don’tr see the forest for the trees. Revolt against this creeping communist government is not only about an assault weapons ban. Open your eyes. Can’t you see the creep toward a socialist/communist style government that the rest of us so clearly see? Can’t you see the lies and deceit? Benghazi, Fast and Furious, taxes, bigger government, reducing the military to nothing, appeasement to radical muslims, “I’m going to have more flexibility after the election” to Putin. Don’t you get it? Where the hell have you been? What is it about obama that blinds you? I really would like to know how a supposed American can be so blind. You have the floor. Explain yourself.

    15. “Big D” what an appropriate moniker! People calling for revolution, actual civil revolt against the government over this! Are you people so crazy and paranoid that you would actually “rise up” in reviluton over an assault weapons ban? I guess if you succeed in overthrowing the government we can all live in an armed camp. Hell that seems to be exactly what you people want. The 2nd Amendment DOES NOT and never has been interpereted by the Supreme Court to allow unregulated access to any weapon that you wish, fully automatic weapons as an example. The true revolution would be if responsible gun owners and the NRA would come up with some reasonable regulations. My God, what would I do without my 30 round magazine? How could I live in a free society if I had to undergo a background check before walking out of a gun show? All I see is a bunch of anti government ranting by a bunch of fools.

    16. Screw Feinstein!!!! Guns are not a luxury or a automobile it is a right(.) Hitler made everyone register their guns before he went and collected them and then slaughtered them… If you believe Rwanda or other places don’t exist and never could believe it to happen here then I guess our education system is a failure. 20 Children is a tragedy but there is no way that my short term emotional “feelings” over this is enough to get rid of the second amendment. Gun laws are fine where I live and there is no reason to change a damn thing. More larger Federal government over reach is not a solution to any of my issues and Feinstein should go figure out ways to cut government and grow revenue without taking more of my hard earned cash. Forcing healthcare and forced education through government loans does not excite me and actually creates debt slaves out of us and our children. China is demanding that Obama disarms America and Mccain wants to detain US citizens without a trial. And people want to willingly fall in line with giving up rights because they are complacent.

      Oh and your tax rate just went up 5% because congress is defunct. I think we should focus on putting elected officials in jail or automatic impeachment if they cannot balance a budget… Oh and people are afraid of terms like semi-automatic and assault rifle!!! Your joking right?

    17. If the recent bloodletting scares them can you imagine the fright they’re going to get when they try to enforce this BS? Wow….how stupid can these people be. Remember reading about how obama wanted his own private army??….I guess the ATF fits the bill. A word of caution to any law enforcement out there wanting to back these commies…you will be considered a traitor.

    18. Has anyone, news outlet or media, checked to see if the rifles used in the recent shootings were initially put into the system under the “Fast and Furious” debacle? It could be quite the scandel if they were.

    19. Scott, if it *looks* scary, it’s on their list. But what they really want is to ban all guns. This isn’t just a so-called “assault” weapons ban. Read the second sentence. It will ban semi-automatic rifles, pistols and shotguns. They will try to take away our second amendment rights and the press will say that anyone who supports the 2nd amendment wants five year olds to die, so that unthinking chattel will clamor to flush their rights down the proverbial toilet. Watch. I guarantee it.

    20. Yeah, good luck with that Senator. Myself and millions of my countrymen and women won’t comply. It is not the government’s business of what or how many firearms I own.

    21. Drudge today is calling it a civil war, in regards to banning guns. Actually, civil war is groups of citizens fighting each other while REVOLUTION is known for citizens fighting tyranny ( http://www.booksbyoliver.com ).

      I am sure the mainstream media will not publish the history of tyranny and their first goal is to illegalize the ownership of weapons, but that is the case. It’s time to take a stand.
