    Dianne Feinstein Wants to Ban Commonly Owned Semi-Autos, Again!
    THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2017

    [​IMG]
    On Wednesday, Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced S. 2095, which she is calling the Assault Weapons Ban of 2017. The 125-page firearm prohibition fever dream is perhaps the most far-reaching gun ban ever introduced in Congress.

    Subject to an exception for “grandfathered” firearms, the bill would prohibit AR-15s and dozens of other semi-automatic rifles by name (as well as their “variants” or “altered facsimiles”), and any semi-automatic rifle that could accept a detachable magazine and be equipped with a pistol grip, an adjustable or detachable stock, or a barrel shroud. And that’s just a partial list. “Pistol grip” would be defined as “a grip, a thumbhole stock, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip,” meaning the ban could implicate even traditional stocks or grips specifically designed to comply with existing state “assault weapon” laws.

    Needless to say, semi-automatic shotguns and handguns would get similar treatment.

    Also banned would be any magazine with a capacity of greater than 10 rounds or even any magazine that could be “readily restored, changed, or converted to accept” more than 10 rounds.

    While Feinstein’s bill would graciously allow those who lawfully owned the newly-banned guns at the time of the law’s enactment to keep them, it would impose strict storage requirements any time the firearm was not actually in the owner’s hands or within arm’s reach. Violations would be punishable (of course) by imprisonment.

    Owners of grandfathered “assault weapons” could also go to prison for allowing someone else to borrow or buy the firearm, unless the transfer was processed through a licensed firearms dealer. The dealer would be required to document the transaction and run a background check on the recipient.

    Should lawful owners of the newly-banned firearms and magazines decide that the legal hazards of keeping them were too much, the bill would authorize the use of taxpayer dollars in the form of federal grants to establish programs to provide “compensation” for their surrender to the government.

    This bill is nothing more than a rehash of Feinstein’s failed experiment in banning “assault weapons” and magazines over 10 rounds. Except this time, Feinstein would like to go even further in restricting law-abiding Americans’ access to firearms and magazines that are commonly owned for lawful self-defense.

    The congressionally-mandated study of the federal “assault weapon ban” of 1994-2004 found that the ban had little, if any, impact on crime, in part because “the banned guns were never used in more than a modest fraction” of firearm related crime.

    Don’t let Dianne Feinstein infringe on our Second Amendment rights with a policy that’s been proven to do nothing to stop crime. Please contact your U.S. Senators and encourage them to oppose S. 2095. You can contact your U.S. Senators by phone at (202) 224-3121, or click here to Take Action.

    From the thread title, I thought that you wanted to ban Dianne Feinstein. That's the real solution.

    The old fart has been at it for years and chances are this will go nowhere. Even if it passed through congress, Trump would veto it. As 2018 rolls around the numbers of semi-auto rifle sales will spike again just as it always does whenever these clowns open their pie-holes.

    I will say this. If there is one crucial demographic that not only will keep the clowns like Feinstein in their collective lair and ensure the expansion of firearm popularity and good use. It's women. The more female shooter we can all encourage will payoff in dividends to counter the anti-gunners. Hopefully, you guys all do the same to encourage more of them to take up shooting.

    her goal is just to continue the effort, at this point.
    she knows her BS ain't flying, wants to continue the quest for a later day. these leftists have learned from the Viet Cong, Mao, and the Taliban/ISIS. they are relentless and patient.
    we need to match, and exceed, or we will in time, loose more than just 2A. we will loose our country.
    the progressives are like the TERMINATOR, they just keep coming and coming. worst nightmare is an enemy that can not be stopped.
    the face may change, the tactic might vary, but the quest to separate ruler and subject is ongoing.
