Feinstein’s Gun Control Legislation

The text of Feinstein’s new “assault weapon” ban is now available. I’ve only had time to skim it but some things to note is that the number of “military features” required to label a semi-automatic rifle an “assault weapon” has been reduced from the 1994’s two to one. There is also a very lengthy list of named firearms that will be prohibited and the law would require specific storage regulations for grandfathered “assault weapons.” Overall it’s a tyrants dream is probably isn’t passable in its current form. With that said the bill is likely a launching point for negotiation. In other words it’s supposed to be a bill that’s so heinous gun rights advocates will come begging for some additional freedom at the expense of others.
