    Assault weapons ban introduced

    Fienstien introduced her assault weapons bill today.

    Sen Stabenow: (202) 224-6221
    Sen Levin: (202) 2244822

    "Ban all semi-automatic rifles that can accept a detachable magazine. This is because the bill would ban any semi-automatic detachable-magazine rifle that has even one "feature," particularly a pistol grip—which is defined to include any "characteristic that can function as a grip." Other features that would cause a rifle to be banned include a forward grip; folding, telescoping, or detachable stock; grenade launcher or (as an absurd propaganda move) rocket launcher; barrel shroud; or a threaded barrel. "

    laughable if she weren't serious!

    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    Barrel shroud is listed? For real?

    Not to downplay how stupid the rest of it is but... that's especially asinine.

    Feinstein Introduces Massive Semi-Auto Firearm and Magazine Ban

    On Jan. 24, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) introduced S. 150, her long-anticipated bill to ban "assault weapons" and "large" magazines. Contrary to media claims that Feinstein wants to "reinstate" the 1994 ban, the bill will go much further toward her stated long-term goal of gun confiscation, imposing a host of absurdly broad definitions and onerous restrictions...

    If something is wrong for ONE person to do to another, it is still wrong if a BILLION people do it.
