The NRA says they have obtained a draft of Feinstein’s bill seeks to redefine what is an “assault weapon” to include a more encompassing amount of guns. There would also be an initiative of forcing Americans to register their guns with the federal government under the National Firearms Act (NFA). This would give the federal government authority to confiscate weapons that were identified in violent acts.
Feinstein hopes to:
• Restrict the modifications to firearms available to citizens
With the redefining of assault weapons, semi-automatic, centerfire, rimfire rifles will be illegal; as well as the M1 Carbine and Ruger Mini-14. No more than 10 round magazines will be available.
The NFA will collect taxes of an estimated $200 per gun purchased as well as the owner file their fingerprints, photograph, address and obtain permission before taking the gun across state lines.
Guns could not be sold privately or passed down to heirs. The owner would relinquish their gun to the US government upon death.
The date of manufacture of magazines would be a necessity to reign in imported firearms, while it is now not common place to date-stamp domestically produced gun magazines. The restriction on handguns, although it violates the Supreme Court ruling that affirms that possession of handguns is the right of all Americans, will be all-encompassing. The hypocritical nature of this addition is that Feinstein is a registered handgun owner.
