    Dianne Feinstein To Introduce Assault Weapons Ban On First Day Of Congress

    WASHINGTON -- In the wake of Friday's mass killing at an elementary school in Connecticut, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday that she plans to introduce an assault weapons ban bill on the first day of the new Congress.
    "I'm going to introduce in the Senate, and the same bill will be introduced in the House -- a bill to ban assault weapons," Feinstein said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
    The shocking murder of 26 children and adults in Newtown, Conn., on Friday has sparked a national discussion on gun control, with mostly Democratic legislators saying laws need to be tightened.
    President Bill Clinton signed an assault weapons ban into law in 1994, but the measure expired a decade later. Democrats have tried several times since then to renew the ban, without success.
    Feinstein called for the ban to be renewed after the mass shooting in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater that killed 12 people and injured 58 others.
    "Who needs these military-style assault weapons? Who needs an ammunition feeding device capable of holding 100 rounds?" Feinstein wrote on her campaign website. "These weapons are not for hunting deer -- they’re for hunting people."
    On Sunday Feinstein laid out details of the bill.
    "It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession, not retroactively, but prospectively," and ban the sale of clips of more than ten bullets, Feinstein said. "The purpose of this bill is to get... weapons of war off the streets."
    Feinstein would not comment on whether President Obama had failed to lead on gun control. "He is going to have a bill to lead on," she said.

    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Obama could use executive powers to enforce existing gun laws, as well as throw his weight behind legislation like Feinstein's.

    Banning possession sounds like a damn fine way to start a war.

    How do you ban possession prospectively? It is a thing of the moment, you either do or do not possess something...

    Once this calms down there will be little desire to start a battle with the American Gun owners. I really don't expect a lot of support in government for a fight like this. The gun running issue with Mexico will rear its head if they open this can of worms.:eek:

    Sorry Dianne, but these firearms are for citizens who wish to protect themselves against tyranny in government. If you don't like it, then **** you. I'm tired of hearing this hunting ****.

    The Second Amendment is not for hunting!!!

    We knew this was coming and I figure most of us could have guessed it would be Feinstein and Shumer who got the ball rolling. Now we have to anticipate the damage they can do and take measures to insure that our elected representatives are going to have the balls to stand up to them.

    Congress would NEVER propose a gun grab. Everyone knows that would lead to civil unrest and martial law. Full blown riots and a domestic war. Wouldnt never happen, dont be so feeble minded guys....

    What is on the table is the AWB and high capacity magazines, and its coming fast. First item on the January 2013 agenda. And it will get passed quickly. Thats almost fact.

    Stock up, since it wont be retroactive. It sucks. Might as well just brace yourselves for it.

    They will use the IRS and the Interstate Commerce Act to control companies who make and market semi auto firearms.:( Any American company wishing to bid government contracts will have to agree to control sales to the civilian market:(.

    According to the WordWeb, the word prospectively pertains to the future, so she's wanting to cancel any future buys.
