Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Thursday introduced a ban on more than 200 “assault weapons” after the House passed two gun-control measures pertaining to background checks.

Her bill (pdf), called the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2021,” is co-sponsored by 34 Senate Democrats and would ban ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds—similar to the bans on magazines in New York state and California.

According to the legislation, which was also introduced in the House by Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), the ban would encompass more than 205 rifles. Feinstein’s bill would allow current owners of the guns to retain possession of them. If that gun is transferred, a person has to undergo an FBI background check before getting the firearm.

The bill also bans any weapon that has the capacity to use a magazine that isn’t a fixed ammunition magazine and has one or more characteristics such as a pistol grip, forward grip, a threaded barrel, a folding or telescoping stock, or a barrel shroud.

The bill “requires that grandfathered assault weapons are stored using a secure gun storage or safety device like a trigger lock” and prohibits the transfer of high-capacity ammunition magazines while banning “bump-fire stocks and other devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at fully automatic rates,” according to a news release from Feinstein’s office. Bump-fire stocks were made illegal in March 2019.

“It’s been 17 years since the original Assault Weapons Ban expired, and the plague of gun violence continues to grow in this country. To be clear, this bill saves lives. When it was in place from 1994-2004, gun massacres declined by 37 percent compared with the decade before. After the ban expired, the number of massacres rose by 183 percent,” Feinstein said in a statement Thursday.

    • Oleg, I WILL NOT COMPLY withb anything this illegitimate bunch comes up with.  I no longer consider the federal government as having any authority over me.  I am 71 and very disabled so very limited in what I can do but they will have to disarm me by killing me!!!!!!!!!!

    • Do what the Colonists did in 1776 and send all these misfits to China instead of England.

    • Constant VIGILANCE is the price we must pay for liberty... we must not let ourselves become complacent or apathetic as the enemies of liberty will surely take advantage of such slothfulness. 

    • The constant necessity to be on the defense is what I meant, these people are elected to uphold the constitution and our rights, yet they keep attacking the constitution and our rights for decades. Vigilance is fine as a trigger for warning, but if they keep abusing the constitution they need to be fired, including with the amendment made just for that

  • typical devildemocommiecrat, rules for thee but not for me!!!!!!!!!!

  • I WILL NOT COMPLY!!!!!!!!!!  Everything they pass is unconstitutional !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • let's make congressional offices and chambers gun free zones

    • madame botox wants that too, just get rid of the armed guards We the People pay for, along with the fences and National Guard forces in the swamp!!!!!!!!!!

  • To be clear, this bill saves lives. When it was in place from 1994-2004, gun massacres declined by 37 percent compared with the decade before. After the ban expired, the number of massacres rose by 183 percent,” Feinstein said in a statement Thursday. Where does she get her statistics from a corrupted FBI who's only jobs is to WATCH Mega people,along with probably us.  And also my understanding that the States can choose to ignore their illegal unconstitutional gun laws because of the second Amendmemt to the US Constitution. For now it is gun registration,but eventually it will be confiscation with the excuse of guns are to dangereous for us uneducated( i am being nice in place of saying what they are probably thinking is stupid) deplorables.  And I think that most of those demogoons are on street drugs by their comments, or logic that they LACK.

    • There is something she doesn't mention. The massacres she talks about are mostly criminals that were killed by people defending themselves. The communists always use this tactic when ever they call for more gun control. They throw in the stats of the criminals killed but just add them together with the law abiding people that were killed. So most of those killed were kriminals.
