2013 Assault Weapons bill

by DallanC » Thu Dec 27, 2012 12:40 pm

The switch from the 2 characteristic to a 1 characteristic test is kind of scary... there are alot of rugar 10/22's and remington 870's and other firearms that will fall under this now (collapsable stock for example). If you have an existing AR you will have to be registered, photographed and fingerprinted to keep it. My dads custom built bolt action .25-06 hunting rifle will now be classified as an assault weapon due to a thumbhole grip.

Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:

Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:

120 specifically-named firearms

Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic

Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds

Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:

Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test

Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test

Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans

Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.

Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:

Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment

Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes and
Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons

Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:

Background check of owner and any transferee;

Type and serial number of the firearm;

Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;

Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and

Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

Just when you think it can't get worse, it does....

Talk being thrown out, Class 3 license for all semi's (Handgun, Rifle, Shotgun) and no grandfather clause.

I really didn't think in my life time that I would see some of this stuff. The left is smelling the blood, so to speak................

2.5 million "assault rifles" were sold since the ban ended. 2.5 million! Yet you graph the # of mass shootings for the past 20 years there is no discernible difference during those times of the ban, and afterward. It remains flat.

As per the FBI stats, more people are killed every year with Hammers and Clubs than rifles!!! NEVER Forget Timmothy McVeigh either. He killed 160 people with NINETEEN of them children. He caused 650 million dollars of damage... he did not use a gun!
