Via Ammoland and a hat tip to Aaron who emailed me about this… Feinstein’s new
gun control civilian disarmament bill bans everything semi-auto that has a grip. Period. Its a very broad definition of “grip” which I would bet could be interpreted to even include a straight line rifle stock.
Here’s the problem none of the “news” reports have spotted:
- The list of guns doesn’t matter.
- Magazine size doesn’t matter.
- If the semi-auto firearm has anything to grip it by, it is banned.
- It’s very clever actually.
According to the bill, any semiautomatic firearm that uses a magazine — handgun, rifle or shotgun — equipped with a “pistol grip,” would be banned. That sounds like a limitation, but it is not.
A pistol grip (on page 2) is defined (on page 13) as “a grip, a thumb-hole stock, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip.” In other words, the gun list does not matter. It is a smokescreen designed to distract people from the true meaning of the bill. And it has done a magnificent job. It worked!
Any semi-automatic firearm that exists, with anything on it you can grip, is banned. (There is a grandfather clause for old stuff.)
