pipedreams Posted March 13, 2021 Share Posted March 13, 2021 "Senate Democrats introduced legislation that would ban 205 “assault weapons” Thursday, just hours after the House passed two other gun control bills. Introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the legislation called the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2021” would also outlaw magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds and is co-sponsored by 34 other Senate Democrats. According to a press release from Feinstein, the bill “bans any assault weapon with the capacity to utilize a magazine that is not a fixed ammunition magazine and has one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock.” Some of the firearms listed in the proposed ban are “All AR types,” “All UZI types,” Ed Brown Hunting and Model 704 Bolt Action Rifles, ‘Springfield Inc. M6 Scout Rifle/Shotgun, Beretta CX4 and Sig Sauer P556 pistol, as well as belt-fed semi-autos. Current owners of the “assault weapons” listed in the legislation would be allowed to keep them, but any private transfers would require an FBI background check prior to receiving the firearm." https://americanmilitarynews.com/2021/03/senate-dems-introduce-assault-weapons-ban-bill-on-205-gun-models-incl-shotguns-hunting-rifles/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
