Senators Introduce Assault Weapons Ban S.66
Jan 09 2019
Washington-Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) today led a group of senators in introducing the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019, an updated bill to ban the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

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. Information on all of the bill's provisions can be found here:

S 66 - A bill...to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited...
How more blatantly obvious can they be? In your face, peasants! :bowdown:

The link in the OP doesn't have a full text link to the bill.

I assume there's no grandfather clause, letting businesses sell their existing inventory and letting individual gun owners keep our stuff as well.

Diane Feinstein previously said that's the kind of no-loophole hardcore ban she really wanted all along.

:lol: Really? What if it becomes law? Some folks here could contribute valuable insight, and I would enjoy learning something from everyone who provides input.

start another thread if you want to talk about the morality of obeying gun cuntrol laws.

This is a factual / news thread about a proposed law.
Learn the difference.

This isn't your blog.

At your blog you can talk randomly about any silly idea that pops into your mind. In any order and without any organization.

With the U.S. Senate having 53 Republicans, versus 47 Democrats / socialists, I don't see any new AWB having a realistic chance of passing.

Not if it would ban normal, common, and ordinary (by today's standards) semi autos, the type of which can be seen all over the shelves at every gun store, most bog-box sporting goods stores, and the vendor's tables at every gun show. Not if the bill would ban the type of guns, and magazines, that are frequently featured on the covers of well-read gun magazines like G&A or Shooting Times or The American Rifleman.

You should seriously consider buying this forum and then running it according to your expectations. Keep out all the rabble rousers. Look at all the time you'll save not having to sh*t on anybody's comments that violate your high standards! :righton:

I'm rejecting Phil's attempt to re-open an argument with me, and I think we all know his comment about morality was specifically aimed at me.

I brought up the issue of morality in another thread and I was jumped on by several others. I was the only person in that thread to express the opinion that we have a moral obligation to obey the laws of our society.

According to the FBI 2017 Uniform Crime Report, there were 1,247,321 violent crimes nationally.

https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2017/crime-in-the-u.s.-2017/topic-pages/violent-crime

Of those 1.25 million violent crimes, 403 murders were committed with rifles of all types. That ratio is statistically insignificant. "Assault weapons" are a subset of the "Rifles" category (look on the Nevada line, you'll see 58 murders, that was the Mandalay Bay/Paddock shooting). Murders committed with "assault weapons" are even more statistically insignificant.

https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2017/crime-in-the-u.s.-2017/topic-pages/tables/table-20

So Senators Feinstein, Murphy, Blumenthal, et al, what's your real reason for wanting to strip Americans of their use and possession of "assault weapons?" 4,000 people drowned in 2017. Are you prepared to ban swimming pools?

More people were killed by hands and feet than were killed by shotguns and rifles combined.

There are between 15 and 20 millions "assault rifles" privately owned in the US. And roughly 850,000 law enforcement officers.

Come and take them.

Do you like your "assault weapon?" Then Sen Chris Murphy (D[umbass]-CT) says you're a killer. You should be ashamed of yourself! [-X Yes, he's one of the original co-sponsors.

Nobody needs an AR-15 to hunt.

Nobody needs a semi-automatic rifle to defend their home.

But mass shooters NEED these weapons in order to murder as many people as efficiently as possible.

And so nobody will miss them when they are illegal - except for the killers.

Sen Chris Murphy, we can discuss AR15 citizen disarmament on the condition any disarmament applies to the police and military as well.
