Feinstein's Press Release on AWB

She released this on Monday. Verbatim below.

Nothing ground-breaking but thought you might like to hear from the horses ass, er I mean mouth...mmm no, I mean ass, for yourself.

Highlights added for emphasis.

Feinstein to Introduce Updated Assault Weapons Bill in New Congress

Stops sale of more than 100 assault weapons; protects gun owners by exempting more than 900 specific hunting and sporting weapons

Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), author of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban that expired in 2004, announced on Sunday that she will introduce updated legislation early next year.
“On the first day of the new Congress, I intend to introduce a bill stopping the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of assault weapons as well as large ammunition magazines, strips and drums that hold more than 10 rounds, Feinstein said. “I am in the process of gathering support for the bill in the Senate and House.”

“I have been working with my staff for over a year on this legislation,” Feinstein added. “It will be carefully focused on the most dangerous guns that have killed so many people over the years while protecting the rights of gun owners by exempting hundreds of weapons that fall outside the bill’s scope. We must take these dangerous weapons of war off our streets.”

A Justice Department study found the Assault Weapons Ban was responsible for a 6.7 percent decline in total gun murders. However, since the 2004 expiration of the bill, assault weapons have been used in at least 459 incidents, resulting in 385 deaths and 455 injuries.

            A summary of key provisions in the updated bill:
  • Stops the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of more than 100 specifically-named firearms as well as certain semiautomatic rifles, handguns and shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.
  • Stops the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of large-capacity ammunition feeding devices (magazines, strips and drums) capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
  • Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
    • grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment;
    • exempting more than 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting and sporting purposes; and
    • exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons.
New AWB sounds a lot like the old AWB.

Evil Black Rifle parts and magazines have been flying off the shelves. Many vendors are out of stock with no ETA on when they'll be available again.

Panic buying and price gouging has set in.

Some dealers are holding their prices steady.

Brownell's is allowing back order purchasing on Magpul - AR-15/M16 PMAG Polymer Magazine 10-Pak's. Great price too. Use code DSR at checkout to receive free shipping.

The first session of the new Congress is January 6th.

Good luck.


  1. Notice how they say the AWB was responsible for 6.7% decline in _total_gun_murders_. Note they don't say "assault weapons" were used to commit the murders. The decline in murders could be attributed to other causes. And they don't cite the study so how can anyone debate?
    Then they cite some absolute statistics since AWB expiration, (if you believe the stats), but it cannot be compared to stats during the AWB. These numbers may actually show the AWB expiration has _reduced_ the number of incidents/deaths/injuries.
    Where is the list of banned and exempted weapons? Why not release the lists now so they can be mocked.
    Total emotional BS.

  2. Well, Feinstein, isn't that nice.



  3. RITR is now blocked by US Cyber Command on .mil networks, congrats! Don't think it was a few weeks ago.

    1. Now why would they go and do a thing like that? ;)

  4. Does this communist bimbo really believe people are buying all these weapons, ammo and mags to turn them in to her quisling pals or to bury them.. really ?

    LMAO ! will they be surprised.

    Yank lll

  5. Maybe it's time to find their addresses....

  6. Feinstein never meet a fact she couldn't distort. In CA they count guns seized by the police in their fictitious numbers. These guns were never used in a crime but they are counted anyway.
