On January 9th, 2019 Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced legislature in an attempt to ban Assault Weapons. The bill is an updated version of prior legislature to include banning the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Senator Feinstein stated on Twitter about the bill; “Last year we saw tens of thousands of students take to the streets to demand action to stop mass shootings and stem the epidemic of gun violence that plagues our communities. This generation has grown up with active-shooter drills, hiding under their desks. #EnoughIsEnough

Americans across the nation are asking Congress to reinstate the federal ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. If we’re going to put a stop to mass shootings and protect our children, we need to get these weapons of war off our streets.

That’s why I’m proud to introduce the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019. This bill bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name.

It also bans any assault weapon that accepts a detachable 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.

And it 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.”

In recent years, other Democrats have attempted to enter similar legislature but have failed. Now, the democrats control the House meaning that the aforementioned legislature stands a chance at passing through the House of Representatives but would most likely be crushed in the Republican controlled Senate.

However, this bill adds credence to the claims that Democrats are still attempting to ban Americans from legally owning firearms.

The Bill’s key provisions are listed below;

  • Bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name. Owners may keep existing weapons.
  • Bans any assault weapon that accepts a detachable 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.

Similar legislature was entered in 2017, the 2019 version includes the following updates;

  • Bans stocks that are “otherwise foldable or adjustable in a manner that operates to reduce the length, size, or any other dimension, or otherwise enhances the concealability of a firearm.”
  • Bans assault pistols that weigh 50 or more ounces when unloaded, a policy included in the original 1994 ban.
  • Bans assault pistol stabilizing braces that transform assault pistols into assault rifles by allowing the shooter to shoulder the weapon and fire more accurately.
  • Bans Thordsen-type grips and stocks that are designed to evade a ban on assault weapons.

I think that the “Fast and Furious” scandal with Diane and Bury Hussein giving automatic weapons to the gangs and cartels in Mexico makes it pretty clear that she hates America. I really don’t see why they need another trial before sentencing.

These demonic, traitorous Democrats cannot be negotiated with and will only continue their crimes against our country, our people and our God, if they are not stopped. Therefore, they must be totally eradicated and they know it……Hence, the desperate measures to ban guns.

There has never been a government that banned it’s own ARMED FORCES from “Keeping and Bearing” ARMS. Find one government in the history of humanity that felt a need to document a “RIGHT” for it’s ARMED FORCES to possess ARMS. Oppressive Governments are ALWAYS banning the People’S RIGHTS to arms. The claim that the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment to give Our ARMED FORCES a “right” to keep and carry ARMS is S-T-U-P-I-D. The only reason for the Second Amendment is to clearly spell-out the GOD GIVEN RIGHT of INDIVIDUALS to keep & bear ARMS. The only reason for… Read more »

Ban them all they want…I’m still keepin’ mine. Don’t believe that “Well, it’s banned, but you can keep it.” Remember, “If you like your plan you can keep it. If you like your doctor, you can keep him.”? They’re Communist liars and I’m still keepin’ mine!!

Feinstein, Pelosi, Biden, Durbin, Duckworth, many of these demon possessed democrats have to disarm normal American citizens little by little in order to bring about this one new fascist world global government. These traitors from within are bringing in every Jose, Mohammad and Abdullah with their unchecked “immigration” (invasion). If and when Americans are ever disarmed the final phase of all fascist takeovers is genocide. You cannot defend yourself or your family if you do not have a good assault weapon. We need to have the same weapons that the Mexican cartel and Middle Eastern Jihadists have. These Senators and… Read more »

Yes you’ve got 90% right. But the last 10% is what counts the most. The hidden puppet masters controlling pulling the strings. If you haven’t yet watched these documentaries exposing AIPAC, then highly suggest and share share share. America has a false fake 2 party political paradigm where both sides of establishment are bought and paid for, funded and controlled by AIPAC Jewish Lobby and Jewish Power Elites. Our country has been infiltrated hijacked and subverted from within by these Marxist Communists. Problem is Enemy isn’t just @ our door it’s inside all our houses. Jewish Zionist Power Supremacy Elites… Read more »

Oh John, I’m also for hanging the top elite puppet masters as well. Hang them all and confiscate their ill gotten money. Another problem we have is the apple of our President’s eye is his favorite daughter, Ivanka who her and her husband are practicing Kabbalah Jews (Jewish mysticism) which is prohibited by God in the Bible. Trump has surrounded himself with globalist traitors and unless he wises up these advisors are going to sink him. Trump is also still fighting Israel’s battles which is not really our business. There is a big difference between Zionists Jews and the average… Read more »

Sounds to me like treason trying to ban the 2nd amendment which shall not be infringed upon. Lock the traitors up! Enough is Enough!

Gee, do ya think those students know what the fuque is going on around them. They don’t have a GD clue, and here is that criminal bitch Feinstein pandering to them to make points. If this passes, she will certainly have a target on her back These bastards have an agenda and will not stop until they’re lives are put on the line. AND, to do that California Patriots need to let them know that if they try and circumvent the constitution as the enemy within, they will eventually pay the price with their lives.

When Feinstein gives up her guns and guards is when she can voice any opinion or start or sponsor any legislation concerning restricting our second amendment rights. What she has done is assured that I will never vote for her or anyone sponsoring any gun rights restriction bills.
