Assault Weapons Ban Of 2013 Includes Pistols And Shotguns

gun ban

California Senator Dianne Feinstein wants 150 types of weapons banned. The Democratic Senator held a press conference to announce her lengthy gun ban bill. Some of the weapons on the list include pistols, shotguns, and rifles.

Feinstein posed with 10 weapons at her side during the Capitol Hill media event, the Daily Caller notes. New York Senator Chuck Schumer and Illinois Senator Dick Durbin stood with Feinstein during her weapons ban speech. The Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 would terminate the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacture of specific weapons.

The Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 would also ban ammunition clips which hold more than 10 rounds. While some gun control supporters feel a high-capacity magazine ban could help prevent more mass shootings, gun rights proponents largely do not agree. The average gun owner can reportedly fire and change three 10 round clips in approximately 30 seconds.

Senator Dianne Feinstein had this to say about the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013:

“Getting this bill signed into law will be an uphill battle, and I recognize that. But it’s a battle worth having.”

The proposed gun ban is more “far reaching” than the ban that expired in 2004, according to the Washington Post. Pistols and rifles that can be used with detachable or fixed ammo magazines that hold more than 10 rounds are included in Senator Feinstein’s proposed ban. Guns with “military style features” such as pistol grips, are also on the Democrat’s list.

The Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 excludes 2,250 guns used for sport of hunting purposes. Assault weapons owned legally before the potential enactment of the bill as also exempt from the ban. Unlike the previous gun ban, the 2013 ban would be permanent in nature.

    I can't stress enough how beyond the pale Feinstein's new AWB is. Not only does it attack rifles for cosmetic reasons rather than function, it in effect negates the entire second amendment. It's a massive step from which repealing all rifles is a small jump. I am honor bound by my love of the USA and dedication to the the Constitution to resist this law even at the cost of my life. You need to fight it if only to avoid the tragic conflict it precipitates.

    We can peaceably and respectfully disagree on issues like healthcare, religion, marriage, education, taxes, etc. But there is no compromising the second amendment, not while there is breath left in my body.

    This bill would make millions, perhaps over 5-10 million guns illegal. It's breathtakingly offensive.

    I love the concept these people have that making all gun illegal will just bring violence to a screeching halt. As if everyone who owned a gun is just going to say "damnit! They passed a law… guess I better hand in my gun(s)…" The fact that this is such a huge topic of debate is such a waste of taxpayer money.

    The problem for the Democratic Party is, MOST young people (at least the dozens that I've spoken to) under 35 either own guns already or are actively planning a purchase of one. These kids (to me) are using words like "Nazis" and "tyrants" when they talk to me about the Dem Party. Almost every one of them has told me they consider Democrats to be too controlling, power-mad,
    and elitist. They very often mention that they side with Rand Paul more than the Democrats (btw, I wasn't a Rand Paul supporter, although I respect Rand a lot more)…….

    90% of these weapons have never been used in a "mass" shooting. Still and continually, the government refuses to address the issue of over 200,000,000 of these weapons already exist and cant be stopped. The issue in all of these mass shootings continues to exist: Mental Health. No, I don't have to have an assult type rifle. I also don't need a car that goes over 70 miles and hour. These people are literally standing on the graves of these children and victims just to push throught their own personal agendas that they fear. Quit punishing the majority to try and stop the minority who are not mentally or morally capable of obeying the laws. This ban will do NOTHING to stop ANYTHING. Thinking otherwise is just plain ignoranace. Capt Clayton Killgore. USMM.

    The sad thing is, this is just the beginning of what the gun grabbers want. There is no point in surrendering an inch to them, for they will never be satisfied until there is a total police state. They say they don't want to end up a Stalinist police state, but they use Stalin's methods and fail to learn history: the desired ends do not justify the means. And history tells us the desired ends would never be reached anyway; only the means are real, and these means are awful.

    Could you please, please, edit the article and replace "clips" with "magazines". They are two different things.

    Now why do I get the sneaky feeling that this dips**t Feinstein has armed security for her precious protection? Get your head outta your ass lady and work on things really needed.
