Say Goodbye To Glocks, Sig Sauers & Shotguns Under Feinstein "Assault Weapons Ban"

Yesterday I told you that Senator Dianne Feinstein's proposed "assault weapons ban" bill would include banning handguns and require gun owners to be fingerprinted. Well, there is much more to the story. The handguns mentioned were pretty specific and if this bill is passed, you can say "Goodbye" to purchasing a new Glock, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, M&P, H&K, or Colt among other name brands.

What is the reasoning for this? According to Feinstein's site:

Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic.

I point this out because most in the line of the above mentioned brands fit the criteria outlined in this bill. In fact, that was one of the major reasons I ended up purchasing Glocks. It wasn't for the name brand. It was because they met certain military requirements for durability and reliability.

Additionally, you'll notice it isn't just assault weapons or even semi-automatic handguns Feinstein mentions. Included are shotguns with detachable magazines that have one military characteristic. These would include pump action shotguns with magazines, as well as, semi-automatic shotguns with magazines.

You may be thinking to yourself that the weapons you already own that fit into these categories will be grandfathered in. You would be correct. However, as I pointed out yesterday that grandfathering requires the following:

  • 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;

In addition, there is an additional tax for you to pay when you register those weapons under the National Firearms Act that you already own! According to the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, "The NFA imposes a $200 tax per firearm." So, they are going to charge you a couple of hundred bucks more for every weapon you already own that falls under these categories!

So while we've been hearing lots about the AR-15, and excellent and accurate rifle, and the snooty remarks about how "no one needs a 30 round magazine," the sneakiness of the Democrats on the new bill doesn't disappoint us as Senator Feinstein has gone way beyond any of that. The focus of late has been on the military style rifles, in the wake of the shootings recently, including the one that took place in Newtown, Connecticut. Semi-automatic handguns have had some degree of light cast upon them as well, but the call for banning is not just about these weapons and it isn't just about children murdered at Sandy Hook. It's the old adage of the "camel getting it's nose in the tent."

This is just a way for Democrats and gun grabbers to get their foot in the door, on their way to attempt to ban all guns. Right now they claim to want to do it only prospectively, but should this pass and more shootings occur, there will be a push to do it retroactively. Personally, I wonder how they will enforce it. Should it come to that, I believe there are many Americans who will give their guns to the government. In fact, many are doing so now for next to nothing gift cards. Others however, in the spirit of the founding fathers, will give the feds their guns....ammunition first, of course.

But what will be next? Now it's military style rifles, semi-automatic handguns and shotguns. How long before revolvers are included? What about Deringers? How long before even a simple .22 rifle or handgun, or even a BB gun will be pushed as a "threat to society?"

Awr Hawkins is right: "If we are foolish enough to embrace a ban on any weapon in the coming Congress then we are unwittingly embracing a ban on every weapon."

    Every reader needs to WRITE and CALL his or her individual Member of Congress and both of your US Senators and speak your mind. Tell them to vote "NO" if the Feinstein bill comes to committee or to the floor. will give you the way to reach them, ASAP.

    It is a given fact that no inorganic subsistence (HINT: GUNS) have ever killed a person! It is the person who fires the gun hat does the killing! The military uses video games to train people now days...I think video-games desensitize people to the reality of what is.

    I hear a person was killed with a screw drive...Let's make screwdrivers illegal. I know of a person that was killed by rocks...Let's outlaw rocks! Now...if guns are outlawed only criminals will have guns? I know I will not surrender mine and I would be willing to bet that my house will be wired if they try to come in and take them!

    I am retired military and have taken an oath to protect this country from all energies foreign and domestic! An I will do this today! Now Obummer has stated that veterans are terrorists...HOW? I uphold the constitution. Many have died around me with the same statements in the hearts that I make!

    Revolution...Bring it on...I need more ears!

    This government is corrupt and I still am trying to figure out how Obummer won and how it is that no one has challenge the count! Seems strange to me! Revolution....sounds good to me!

    Say Goodbye To Glocks, Sig Sauers & Shotguns Under
    Feinstein “Assault Weapons Ban”

    That is ONLY if Americans do not understand the point of the Second Amendment. When machine guns were outlawed the Supreme Court upheld the ban as constitutional. The most important part of the decision
    however was the Ober Dictum wherein they explained that had the
    defendant argued the military value of the machine gun the government
    could not outlaw it. This is a huge hat tip to the purpose of the
    Second Amendment: the people have the right to military grade firearms in order to maintain the military capabilities of the "militia". EVERY weapon listed in Senator Feinstein's bill can be shown to have military value and is therefore excluded from
    efforts to ban them. The purpose of the second amendment was to secure military capabilities for We the People.

    it come to that, I believe there are many Americans
    who will give their guns to the government. In fact,
    many are doing so now for next to nothing gift cards.

    believe this statement is false and misleading. An article recently
    stated that nearly 8,000 guns had been "bought back" nationwide in the
    last month. Seriously? 8,000? How many MILLIONS of weapons were sold
    on just the Friday after Sandy Hook?

    You people are all talk and nothing more. Most amerikans are stoned, drunk or on prozac. The rest are brain dead from mindless tv shows, sports and worshiping "celebrities". Game over. They planned this 40 years ago and it went according to their plan.

  • Jerabek

    In Australia we cannot even have a " Air rifle" at home.

    Awr Hawkins is right:
    “If we are foolish enough to embrace a ban on any weapon in the coming
    Congress then we are unwittingly embracing a ban on every weapon.” The Feinstein bill is a little piece to advance TYRANNY.

    just watched a movie last night , total recall. that had a scene where a worker started shooting everyone in his work place. how many nut jobs will see this and think how cool. hollywood needs to stop all this violence and make movies where real acting is in palce not all the make believe violence that unhinged idiots will watch and try and copy.

  • Raymond ST.Louis

    Look, Diane Fienstien has never done any good for the country she doesn't care how many people loose their jobs or whether there are any roghts left in this country. The only thing she cares about is lining her pockets or keeping her government job that she doesn't have to worry about the issues qwe americans must like prescription cost or monthly premiums. so why should she be concerned with whether or not you have any rights at all. She need to be terminated from her job and I hope that the people that elected her she her for what she truely is.

  • RKflorida

    I'd rather say goodbye to Feinstein under a new "Liberal" ban.

  • Jon Schmitt

    As I recall in history class, there was another population that was "marked" by the government with big, yellow stars of David on their clothing...

    To attempt to confiscate or otherwise make all firearms illegal is likely to trigger civil war. Yes, what a good idea - to start a civil war that will likely kill thousands, all in the name of 20 children.


    If this country doesn't rise up and tell this idiot from California to cram it, then we deserve what we get. I don't see it happening, as the NRA is very powerful, and the citizens by a wide margin of 2 to 1 ratio favor the second amendment. This "senator" should be tried as a traitor for even suggesting that we go the way of Hitler's Nazi Germany, because it's exactly what he did....I see a Civil War breaking out if they even get this done. But then they are prepared for marshal law from what has been reported with gulags, body bags and enough ammo to go a 7 year war....God help us if we don't rise up and kick these idiots out of office...

  • Walt

    You ignorant clods have been warned and warned for years about these people like Feinstein and the many others who want to cripple our nation and the 2nd Amendment and you just keep voting them back in office. Do not ever forget that if this passes it is the fault of the ignorant/unconcerned voters, not the gun owners who are responsible.

    • Terry

      Don't call me ignorent Walt! I don't live in freecking Califonia and I didn't vote for the D-- Progressive. Blame the idiots that live in Cal. not me.

    Why do we fear...our elected officials?
    They are just people. Nothing more.
    What are they going to do?.......send people with guns to arrest and shoot us?
    I think we all have to ask ourselves that simple to why we 'fear' them so much.

    • Centurain

      Why yes they will send people to arrest and shoot us. Ruby Ridge? Branch Davidians? Bonus army? Study history and see what will happen soon.
