(Any gun that takes a banana clip is evil)Looking at the above list we have come across the following conclusions thus far about what the lobby seems to be up to:
- Going hard after 50-cals: The ban list specifically mentions the Barrett M107A1; Barrett M82A1. These long-range target rifles are among the best known and bestselling 12.7x99mm chambered guns on the market. Their use in crimes is completely unheard of and their magazine capacity is under the gun control lobby's publicly stated 10-round limit. In addition, the only belt-fed gun listed by name, the TNW M2HB, is a fifty. It seems that as a class, 50s have a senseless target on their back.
- Feinstein hates pistol caliber carbines: Almost every pistol caliber carbine in modern production is on this list. These guns, light compact rifles that fire 9mm/40/45ACP ammunition common to handguns, are extremely popular with target shooters who like them for their ease of balance, mild recoil, and affordability to shoot. They also make ideal home defense firearms for those who have problems with handguns and are unable to absorb the recoil of shotguns. For this reason, they make good personal defense guns for persons with disabilities. Their use in crime is extremely rare. Examples of this type are the people's champion Hi-Point carbine, the Beretta CX4, Feather Industries AT9, the Thompson rifles (all 13 makes!), the UZI variants, the Calico Liberty Series, and the KelTec Sub 2000.
(The humble Hi-Point 995 keeps the anti-gun lobby awake at night)
- If its 556 or 7.62x39, it's an assault rifle: It seems as if the gun lobby flipped through the pages of the Shotgun News or Recoil magazine and circled anything that looked scary to them, especially if its chambered in 5.56mm or 7.62x39mm. Of the 157 guns on the list, with the exception of the 20 or so pistol caliber carbines, the TNW M2HB and Barrett guns, and the dozen or so shotguns, nearly 100 of them are in these two calibers.
- Shotguns are ok, except for guns that have been in a lot of action movies such as the Franchi, Streetsweeper, and SPAS series, oh and anything that says Saiga on the side of it.
- Many in Congress and the right say that this bill is dead in the water.
If you have an opinion on it, share it with your own representatives, and by all means, forward this article around.
If nothing else, it makes a good shopping list.
