Senator Diane Feinstein's Semi-Auto Ban bill
Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) has published what her firearms ban bill will contain. The link to her publication is down below. Her bill would require:
All currently owned semi-auto firearms, handguns and rifles, that can use a magazine that can hold more than ten rounds must be registered as National Firearms Act items. That registration will be with the federal government.
1. There will be 120 named firearms that will become NFA firearms.
2. Such NFA automatic firearms require a $200.00 per firearm federal tax.
3. Newly made semi-automatic firearm will not be able to accept a magazine that contains more than ten rounds.
4. The point system is much more than in the prior (1994-2204) ban.
So, if you currently own a Glock, Springfield Armory XD, S&W or any other semi-auto pistol that will accept a magazine that can hold more than ten rounds, you will have register as described.
Same with a Ruger Mini-14, M1 Carbine, AR-type, Springfield Armory M1A or any other semi-auto rifle that will accept a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds.
When the 120 firearms are named, it will most likely have shotguns in the list, for there was with the 1994-2004 gun ban. There were semi-auto and pump actions shotguns in that ban.
If Senator Feinstein has her unconstitutional way:
You will be registered with federal law enforcement. Like a convicted sex offender.
You will have to be fingerprinted and photographed by law enforcement.
You will have to surrender any magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds.
Of course, will have to get the required approval document from local law enforcement, for federal registration, you will also be registered with Vermont law enforcement.
You will have to hope that a local police department will sign off on you being able to register your newly designated NFA firearm. The PD may not want to accept such liability.
Of course, if you opt not to register, you will be able to surrender your firearm as possession of an unregistered NFA firearm or magazines that hold more than 10 rounds will be a federal felony offense.
