Do people even pay attention to what is actually written in these bills?

First of all its not a continuation of the Brady/original assault weapon ban. This bill wants to outlaw all semi auto rifles and handguns, that have a detachable magazine. Any gun that can accept a magazine capable of more than ten rounds, even if you dont own a large capacity magazine, even a single stack 1911 has a 50 round magazine it can use! The original Ban only affected certain features and allowed 2 features but not a pistol grip and flash suppressor! But if it also had a bayonet mount, it was outlawed, but you were alowed to remove 1 feature to keep it at the 2 limit. This new bill would outlaw any rifle with just 1 feature, so under the old ban an M1 Garand was ok, cause it only can hold 8 rounds even though it has a bayonet mount! Under this new bill even this would be outlawed cause it has just 1 of these features!!

This bill is an outright gun ban, no words about it! You can keep your gun if you keep it registered, but when you die it has to be turned over to the feds for destruction!! There is no transferring to your children, so this is actually a future confiscation gun ban, you are selling out the 2nd amendment rights of your children!!!

NOT too mention, who will be able to afford $200 for each gun you want to keep and each clip you need to register? And once they find out just how many guns are out there, will they panic? or limit just how many guns you can keep!??

It also places the ATF in charge of determining which guns will be allowed under this law!

When you want to register your gun, you also have to give your gun to the local police where they will check it for legallity and photograph it and register the serial number and then only if the local poice chief OKs your paperwork will you be able to file for registration with the FEDS! If the local police chief doesnt like you or think you dont need this type of gun, you will lose it!!!

So you have to first turn in your guns to local police and then wait for registraion with the takes weeks for people to do this with registering FULLY AUTO weapons and there are a small amount of these out there. NOW imagine 200 million+ guns going into the system?? How many months before you get your permits and your guns back??? And telling the feds or local police why you need moe than 1 gun in your house!?

In England and Australia they imposed bans similar to this but outlawed these guns...after similar tragedies. They allowed certain rifles but eventually outlawed these too!! With in a short period of time!!

Its all about baby steps, chip away freedoms a little at a time and before you know it, you've lost all your rights!!!

To show how truly ridiculous this proposed ban is,

The Ruger Model 10-22 will cease to exist in one generation, if this bill is passed.

They have the 10-22 listed as an assault weapon.

Jesus is that accurate? Reminds me of the scene in Josey Wales when they are confiscating the rifles from the confederates who surrendered, "I need it for squirrels and such." Once the men were disarmed, well watch the movie if you've not seen it, pretty good one.
Listing a .22 rifle, the finest ever made arguably, as an assault weapon is kind of insulting to those of us who know better than that.

"Liberty and Justice for all" sounds good until you figure out the etymology, Libation and Judaic (judicial) Rule.

well you see a lot of us won't give them up so easily
even if one or two percent of gun owners decide to fight back, it will still be very difficult to beat us

The list of conditions, as I read it, says that any semiautomatic rifle that can accept a removable magazine which holds more than ten rounds will be banned. This includes .22 rimfires. The only exception noted was a .22 rimfire rifle that has a tubular magazine.
If the bill passes, people that own a Ruger 10-22 will have to pay the $200 tax, go through the Federal background check and get fingerprinted. The weapon will be registered with the Feds and the owner will not be allowed to transfer it. He can't pass it on to one of his children. So, in another generation, they would cease to exist.

Especially when one considers the fact that Sen. Feinstein is a CCW holder. The hypocritical hussy.
