Bill/Issue: Federal ban on so-called "assault weapons"
Author: Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)
Position: Strongly Opposed
Summary: Would federally ban numerous semiautomatic rifles, AR pistols and shotguns as "assault weapons"
Sen. Dianne Feinstein just introduced her federal "assault weapons" ban of 2021, and it is even worse than her original 1994 legislation. Feinstein's vile bill is a whopping 125 pages, and among the most expansive gun bans ever introduced in the U.S. Congress.
Here's what Sen. Feinstein's bill would do if passed:
- Ban your AR-15s, other rifles, AR pistols and even some shotguns
- Federally define "assault weapons" the same way states like California and New York do
- Ban standard-capacity magazines that can accept more than 10 rounds
- Force you to obtain a special license to keep your so-called "assault weapons"
- Mandate "safe storage" of your firearms
- Institute a ludicrous "buyback" program for your guns
- And more.
This proposed ban is so unforgiving that it even bans California-compliant features like Thordsen-type stocks. If you live in California, your rifles would still be subject to the ban. And if you live elsewhere, prepare for Californication on steroids.
But the worst part is - unlike Feinstein's original "assault weapons" ban that expired in the early 2000s - this one has NO SUNSET DATE. That means if Di-Fi's 2021 "assault weapons" ban is signed into law, it can only be undone in the courts (as in Heller vs. DC).
And this legislation could be advanced and sent to Pres. Biden's desk before you can say "come and take it." Indeed, on March 11, gun owners saw two federal gun control bills pass the House. Both were introduced just 9 days prior to passing the House.
We've never seen gun control move this fast. Which means the tyrants could shove Di-Fi's vile ban through the Congress at warp speed. This is an URGENT call to arms, and perhaps your ONLY chance to prevent a PERMANENT gun ban.
Therefore, we are urging you to take IMMEDIATE action to stop this awful bill. Use FPC's Take Action form below and tell the Senate to REJECT Di-Fi's gun ban!
