Feinstein's latest wet dream

She wants to ban everything, "grandfather" what's out there with universal registration and fingerprinting - well, read it for yourself. I've put my comments in line.

Stay informed

In January, Senator Feinstein will introduce a bill to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devices.

Summary of 2013 legislation

Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:

Let's start out by preventing any new stuff from ever being available to future generations. This should make it easy for the next round of genocide. Thanks,biatch.
  • Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
    • 120 specifically-named firearms
    • Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic
    • Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds
Then, let's continue what didn't work before, but let's do it harder:
  • Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
    • Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test
    • Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test
    • Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans
Of course, we need to ban those big magazines:
  • Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds. 
Repeat the old lie about "hunters" and "sporting purposes":
  • Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
    • Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment
    • Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes and
    • Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons
Personally, I've never seen a gun that wasn't manually operated. How about you?
Maybe she's looking ahead to mentally-controlled firearms - sorta like they did with the "plastic gun" ban, now that 3-D printers are getting common.
 
Now, for some teeth. Universal registration, just like in the Wiemar Republic:
  • Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
    • 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; and
    • Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

Effectivenness of 1994-2004 Assault Weapons Ban

Now, let's review history after a little makeover in the Ministry of Truth:

Following are studies that have been conducted on the 1994-2004 Assault Weapons Ban:
Of course, the "Urban Institute" is totally unbiased and scientific.
Once you define something to NOT be an "assault weapon", of course the use of that evil thing drops. Only problem is, the number of shootings with NON-"assault" weapons goes up to make up the difference - or worse.
I wonder who these people are. Check this out: http://junksciencearchive.com/news/guns.html
It's always good to get data from reliable sources. The VPC in particular will never fail to provide the requisite numbers on demand - just give them the requirements, and their crack team of professional statisticians will roll out whatever results prove the point they want proven.

Sort of like the fed's Bureau of Labor Statistics that can always be relied upon to "look on the bright side of life"
