I hope this thread isn't going to get derailed by stupid, unrelated posts.

Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein Introduces Bill to Ban Assault Weapons, High-Capacity Magazines Hours After House Dems Pass Gun Control Bill

Link to the TEXT of the Bill - if you own ANY gun, even a Ruger 10-22, it's mentioned in this (as exempt), but, we all know, once it's been identified, it can easily be amended and switched to the banned category.

Download this, and look it over, it's quite thorough!

It is noteworthy, the definition of assault weapons, as having 'any ONE of these features'.
Page #2 reads, line by line:

21 ''(36) The term 'semiautomatic assault weapon'
22 means any of the following, regardless of country of manu
23 facture or caliber of ammunition accepted:
24 ''(A) A semiautomatic rifle that—
25 ''(i) has the capacity to utilize a magazine
26 that is not a fixed magazine; and

3ALB21406 F2P S.L.C. (page #3)

1 ''(ii) does have any 1 of the following:
2 ''(I) A pistol grip.
3 ''(II) A forward grip.
4 ''(III) A folding, telescoping, or de
5 tachable stock, or is otherwise foldable or
6 adjustable in a manner that operates to re
7 duce the length, size, or any other dimen
8 sion, or otherwise enhances the
9 concealability, of the weapon.
10 ''(IV) A grenade launcher.
11 ''(V) A barrel shroud.
12 ''(VI) A threaded barrel.

The bill definitions are pretty thorough, IMO, and goes on to NAME the manufacture of hundreds of weapons, from Bolt Action, Lever Action, Single Shot, like they opened a an old copies of NRA hunting editions and just added all these names into the bill.

(edited from page 16, to conserve space, line numbers are removed, starting with line 12, my emphasis in RED & underlined)

12 SEC. 3. RESTRICTIONS ON ASSAULT WEAPONS AND LARGE CAPACITY AMMUNITION FEEDING DEVICES.
(a) IN GENERAL.—Section 922 of title 18, United States Code, is amended—
(1) by inserting after subsection (u) the following:
''(v)(1) It shall be unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semiautomatic assault weapon.
''(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to the possession, sale, or transfer of any semiautomatic assault weapon otherwise lawfully possessed under Federal law on the date of enactment of the Assault Weapons Ban of 2021.
''(3) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to any firearm that—
''(A) is manually operated by bolt, pump, lever, or slide action; ''(B) has been rendered permanently inoperable; or ''(C) is an antique firearm, as defined in section 921 of this title.


To ban it, they first define it.  I don't know where this bill will end up, how it'll be edited, amended, reduced, enlarged, etc.  We have the anti-2nd amendment lawmakers will to consider it, and the President(s) Harris-Biden administration just waiting to sign something like this into law.

There is a LOT of guns mentioned in this bill by manufacture - if you own *anything* listed, beware, that's the very first step, categorization, registration is probably next.  If you do NOT own a gun, I suggest you BUY something... before gun bills like this are enacted, to be "grandfathered in" as a legal owner.   At the very LEAST, if you're thinking of it, buy an AR-x stripped lower, which is serialized, but doesn't immediately fall into any category - other than "it is an inoperable gun" - LOL.



That picture is "a gun".  It has a serial number, it's what/why the gun seller does a background check, this is what the BATF (ATF?) considers "a gun".  It's why the AR-15 is considered the "Swiss Army Knife of Firearms - they can be built out into pistols, rifles, semi-auto, bolt action, probably even a lever action too!  But, *that* picture is "the gun".  Buy 3 of them, while you can, but them in a secure place, because they ARE guns, with serial numbers, you don't want to have them stolen, or treat them as anything but a "real firearm".

IF... you wish at some later date, to "assemble" something still legal to own, you're already through the background check process, before it turns into something more restrictive.  buy SEVERAL of them, and when they start a "gun buy back" program, sell your $100 "Blister packed gun" for $500.  Quite a return on your investment! 

''(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to the possession, sale, or transfer of any semiautomatic assault weapon otherwise lawfully possessed under Federal law on the date of enactment of the Assault Weapons Ban of 2021.

Take advantage of this Grandfathering Clause - buy stripped lower receivers, 3 at a time.  When the gun store calls in the background check, it's ONE time for all 3 "guns" in the single purchase, nothing about "he/she is buying 3 guns" - just ONE purchase.  Buying more than 3 might trigger something, or making more than one purchase a month might get unwanted attention.  At $100 per stripped lower, that's a really cheap investment, compared to buying 3 fully built out AR-15s at $1200-1500 each.  Plus, there are tons of videos on Youtube worth downloading, showing *how* to assemble your own, working model, which I suspect is quite easy, without special tools.  Download them while you *can*, because I suspect educational videos will soon disappear as well.

As far as ammunition, that's going to depend on the caliber you choose.  22LR (yes, you can build one for that) will probably always be available, so no matter *what* you build, just add the "22LR adapter" and now you've got a really fancy looking 22 rifle for squirrel & rabbit hunting.   Good luck!

Criminals are using handguns, not ugly, scary, AR-15s.

I guess she died sometime after she drove off, officer is in the hospital.

The real weapon is her heart, soul, and mind which makes her an evil person.
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.
