Mar 11 2021

Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-R.I.) today introduced the Assault Weapons Ban, an updated bill to ban the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, like were used in the massacre in Dayton, Ohio, where the shooter had a 100-round magazine attached to an assault rifle.

“It’s been 17 years since the original Assault Weapons Ban expired, and the plague of gun violence continues to grow in this country,” said Senator Feinstein. “To be clear, this bill saves lives. When it was in place from 1994-2004, gun massacres declined by 37 percent compared with the decade before. After the ban expired, the number of massacres rose by 183 percent. We’re now seeing a rise in domestic terrorism, and military-style assault weapons are increasingly becoming the guns of choice for these dangerous groups. I’m hopeful that with the new administration and Democratic control of the Senate, we can finally pass commonsense gun reforms to remove these deadly weapons from our communities.”

“Assault weapons are designed for a single purpose – to kill as many people as possible in as short an amount of time as possible. That’s why they are the weapon of choice for mass shooters and domestic terrorists. They are weapons of war and do not belong in our communities,” said Congressman Cicilline. “Banning these weapons will make our cities and towns safer and more secure and help to reduce gun deaths.”

In the Senate, the bill is cosponsored by Senators Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Tom Carper (D-Del.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hawaii), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Chris Coons (D-Del.), Tina Smith (D-Minn.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), Alex Padilla (D-Calif.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.).

“Military-style assault rifles were designed to kill as many people as quickly as possible. Period. There is no reason why these weapons should be sold to the public. President Biden ran on passing commonsense legislation to end the gun violence epidemic. The data is clear: an assault weapons ban will save lives. I’m proud to join Senator Feinstein in reintroducing this critical legislation,” said Senator Murphy.

“What do Las Vegas, Orlando, Newtown, Sutherland Springs, El Paso, and Parkland all have in common? These communities are a tragic shorthand for some of the deadliest mass shootings in our nation’s history, all of which involved an assault weapon,” said Senator Blumenthal. “Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are deadly and dangerous weapons of war that belong on battlefields—not our streets. They have no purpose for self-defense or hunting, and no business being in our schools, churches and malls. By passing this legislation, Congress can honor the memory of the beautiful lives cut short by military-style assault weapons in far too many American cities.”

Key provisions:

Bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name. Owners may keep existing weapons.

Bans any assault weapon with the capacity to utilize a magazine that is not a fixed ammunition magazine and has one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock. Owners may keep existing weapons.

Bans magazines and other ammunition feeding devices that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which allow shooters to quickly fire many rounds without needing to reload. Owners may keep existing magazines.

Requires a background check on any future sale, trade or gifting of an assault weapon covered by the bill.

Requires that grandfathered assault weapons are stored using a secure gun storage or safety device like a trigger lock.

Prohibits the transfer of high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Bans bump-fire stocks and other devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at fully automatic rates.
Exemptions to bill:

The bill exempts by name more than 2,200 guns for hunting, household defense or recreational purposes.

The bill includes a grandfather clause that exempts all weapons lawfully possessed at the date of enactment.

Suggest moving this thread to the Lounge for more exposure.

The word needs to get out on this and the other two bills going on.

I originally posted this to the Lounge but moved it to "Gun Control Discussion" to stay within Forum guidelines.
Maybe forum staff could create a link in the other sub-forums if they feel it's needed.

"Domestic Terrorists", "dangerous groups". Translated:

Constitutionalists. Non-Progressive Christians/Jews.. Conservatives. Trump voters.

Feels like she is pointing her finger at you and me, doesn't it?

Ummm, it's chosen by military groups and LE, foreign and domestic. Chosen because they are reasonable and effective and readily available. And other reasons.

Ummm, the public needs weapons to displace tyranny. So we need them to fight against you.

Why does it feel like the the spark that will trigger a civil war is coming ever closer?

I actually hope I'm alive to see the day when the trash is taken out, once and for all and we become a sane, great nation, respected globally for integrity, values and prosperity, once again.

~40% of eligible GA voters didn't cast a ballot a few weeks ago.

So here we are...

Pick your pro2A group/cause...GOA, SAF, NRA, etc. and civilly support them.

The dims don't give a shit how many pro-gun groups you contact or how many letters you send to them. They will vote as a bloc in both the house and senate to pass this. They don't fear any repercussions because they know how to steal future votes and get away with it.

^^Likely true. With the way things are going, and likely to get worse due to inept management, good chance they know they're going to get decimated in the mid-terms. So get it on the books now, no matter what.

The question is if/when that occurs, will the RINO's have the stones to repeal it with the usual 'If you repeal this, you want children to DIE!' hyperbole.

Among other things, think about how that's going to effect private party sales if you can't transfer standard capacity mags? Going to be alot of semi-autos out there sold without any...all part of the plan to just make it more and more difficult on the law abiding.

But the GC crowd would be tickled pink if you thru up your hands in frustration and tossed in the towel. You think it's bad now? Try that approach.

Same as 'I'm not voting for that RINO!' and then a worse democrat wins. Boy, you sure showed them! Roll Eyes .

I hope she dies knowing that this has never passed, despite her having tried to get it done at every opportunity.
