Feinsteins Gun Bill

Let's not pass it so we won't have to read it and thus find out what's in it.

The bill bans some 150 firearms by name, and goes on to include any she might have missed by description. From page 2:
 17 the term "semiautomatic assault weapon"
18 means any of the following, regardless of country of manu-
19 facture or caliber of ammunition accepted:
20 ‘‘(A) A semiautomatic rifle that has the capac-
21 ity to accept a detachable magazine and any 1 of the
22 following:

23 ‘‘(i) A pistol grip.
24 ‘‘(ii) A forward grip.
25 ‘‘(iii) A folding, telescoping, or detachable
page 3 OLL13052 S.L.C.
1 stock.
2 ‘‘(iv) A grenade launcher or rocket launch-
3 er.
4 ‘‘(v) A barrel shroud.
5 ‘‘(vi) A threaded barrel.
Now we drop down to page 13 and note That a "grip" is:
2 The term ‘pistol grip’ means a grip, a thumb-
3 hole stock, or any other characteristic that can function
4 as a grip.
 Which says that her ban extends to any semiauto rifle with a detachable magazine .

Page 11 bans Mannlicher stocks as they look like barrel shrouds if they have a piece over the top of the barrel or perhaps because shoulder things that might go up.

S-150 is drawing so much attention that it's unlikely to go anywhere. It does, however, make the rest of the lot of bad gun law look more reasonable by comparison.

Keep reminding your representatives that none of the proposed new gun laws actually address the problem of suicidal madmen looking to run up the body count on their way out, and you are really tired of being blamed for their actions.
