Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:
  • 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 or more military characteristics; and
    • Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.
  • 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; and
    • Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans.
  • Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Hahahahaha....semi auto rifles that can accept 10 or more bullets.

My 70's model .22 will be banned from me giving it to my son, like my father did.

No, no, they are not talking about taking your guns....it's like, just, kinda infringing...it's not a big deal....stop being a gun toting psycho....

Lots of gray areas there. Ms Feinstein must be an expert to have put this together so quickly......or....she has had it ready for some time and is using this as an opportunity to get it through before the emotion of the Newtown tragedy wears off.

So many details, I do not trust one sided legislation. Why not get a "simpson bowles" type group together to write something. Conservative Dem and Moderate Repub like a Manchin and McCain and then there would still be griping, but details could be known.

I wonder why she won't just let the CA Senate and House take these measures up?

Why not abide by the Constitution and use the 10th?

It won't pass in that form.

The seizure of weapons upon death is completely absurd.

But most of the more liberal types here like giving stuff to the Government, so they should have no problem with it.

Also Fienstien is basically the QB for removing liberties and creating a Police State. She is a scary bitch.

Of course not.

You assumed one thing could solve it?

Where is that part? I missed it.

Parts of this are unclear a bit.

I also don't think it will pass in this form, but was proposed as something that can be discussed and compromised on, probably.
