The latest fun bill being offered by Sen Dianne Feinstein, 205 guns, magazines and bump stocks, which is weird since bump stocks were already illegal.
Feinstein claims that the previous assault rifle ban cut down on shootings but Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice report showing that the 1994-2004 assault weapons ban had no effect on crime. The bill will also include mandatory universal background check. The new ban like the old one will be based on design and will include many guns that should not be on the list nat all.
This is just an incremental approach to eventually banning all guns
The Senate “assault weapons” ban outlaws 205 specific guns, magazines holding 11 rounds or more, and bump stocks, which are already illegal.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the bill’s sponsor, cites alleged benefits from the 1994-2004 “assault weapons” ban in an effort to bolster the chances for passage of the new version. However, she ignores the Department of Justice’s National Institute of Justice report showing that the 1994-2004 ban could not take credit for any reduction in crime.
In addition to banning 205 different guns, “high capacity” magazines, and bump stocks, the Senate “assault weapons” ban includes a universal background check requirement for any future transfer of firearms covered by the ban.
Like the 1994-2004 ban, Feinstein’s bill defines “assault weapons” based on cosmetic features. Therefore, the legislation bans commonly owned semiautomatic rifles that take detachable magazines and “[have] one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock.”
