Feinstein Gun Bill: ‘To Ensure That the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is Not Unlimited’


The preamble to Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) “assault weapons” banning bill describes the purpose of the proposed law as “[regulating] assault weapons, [and ensuring] that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited.”

The bill was introduced on Jan. 24, and was referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The bill lists approximately 150 banned weapons, including “semiautomatic rifles” that “accept a detachable magazine and any 1 of the following: a pistol grip, a forward grip, a folding, telescoping, or detachable stock, or a threaded barrel” (among other things).

It bans “semiautomatic pistols” with the “capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any 1 of the following: a threaded barrel, a second pistol grip, or a barrel shroud” (among other things).
