This Act May Be Cited as the ‘Assault Weapons Ban of 2013’



( — If passed into law, U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) bill, S. 150, would criminalize the choices of law-abiding Americans who legally purchased modern sporting rifles, shotguns and handguns.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation notes that Feinstein’s legislation cover many more firearms, including handguns and shotguns, than did the 1994 ban on semi-automatic rifles. The NSSF says she seeks to lower the threshold of what firearms would be banned, by requiring only one cosmetic feature to define an “assault weapon” instead of two. The new bill also looks to reinstate the ban on magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.
Finally, there is no sunset provision, meaning this bill would ban modern sporting rifles forever, NSSF points out. An earlier version of the legislation calls for current, legal owners of modern sporting rifles to be fingerprinted, photographed and have their firearms registered in a federal database. Whether the senator would still seek these onerous and expensive provisions is unclear at this writing.
Sen. Feinstein’s bill does not address the real issues that would prevent further tragedies and is not a serious effort to keep our children and communities safer. Instead she wants to ban commonly owned firearms popular among recreational shooters, collectors and hunters and create a database to track their current owners.
NSSF encourages everyone to call their U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative at 202-224-3121 and demand that they reject S. 150 and its companion bill in the House of Representatives.
