    Feinstein is calling on the people to "rise up", make their voices heard, and contact their legislators.

    We need to continue to do the same.

    At least she has acknowledged how much and uphill battle it will be to get her bill passed.

    The list:

    And am I correct in assuming that they mean ALL "AK" and "AR" types... not just the ones on the list?

    How are they allowed to get away with lying like this?
    Is there no accountability? No discussion from the other side of the argument or firearms experts?
    How can they say that they know very little about firearms, and in the next breath spout 'facts' about them?
    They seem to be relying heavily on the First Amendment, shame they have so little respect for the Second.

    I was especially impressed that a liberal who shuns any form of religion in politics, has enlisted a clergyman from the national cathedral to open with a prayer in an attempt to bring Christianity onto their side. Is there nothing she wont do?

    Also, by these Dems calling rifles "Weapons of mass destruction", didn't they just totally prove that Bush was right and Iraq had weapons of mass destruction?

    I like how the Barrett M82 and the FN FAL are "AR types".

    Banning the AR-15 and AK platform would pretty much spark civil war. I'm not calling for insurrection or warcries, but it's plain and simple that if you take the two most popular rifles in the country and make it illegal, everyone with those rifles will be mad.

    Noticed the M-14/M1A is not listed, neither is SKS.

    Shotguns, they're pretty much looking at Saiga-12. I wonder how they feel about the three high-cap tube-fed shotguns (the Kel-Tec, the other one like Kel-Tec, and the one with the rotating tubes) or the Saiga 20/410.

    The sad thing is these weapons, especially the pistols mentioned, are rarely used in crime, but are all (well...again, except for the pistols) very good tools for fighting crime.

    Hmmm...AR15 22LR is specifically on the list....but Ruger's SR22 rilfe is not. And does the S&W M&P 15 exclusion include the 15-22, or leave it out?

    Ranch Mini-14 is not on the list. Nor is any 10-22 as near as I can see. What a crock of HS.

    My takeaway from this, is that Feinstein and McCarthy appeared completely out of touch with that they are discussing. I can't say whether the references to hip-firing and duck hunting were merely political theater or if they actually believe such things. I don't discount the latter as I think that they really don't know much about firearms.

    Unfortunately, this relfects the beliefs of many people who don't know much about guns. Education is key in showing the folly of such beliefs.

    Just curious, couldn't companies come up with new names for their product? i.e. S&W could rename their rifles the Modern Musket (or MM-15) and suddenly it's not banned.

    I also wonder how many companies will "accidentally" include 10-round big-bore AR-15 magazines with their .223 version. (I can't remember which of the "big" 3, .450 bushmaster, .458 socom, and .50 beowulf uses AR-mags as single-stack mags). Hey, they're 10-round magazines!

    (Although I guess they might pull the same tactic they did in New York, i.e. you can have 10 loaded).

    This is why they have the secondary definition using the feature test.

    At the risk of fines, imprisonment and losing their FFL? Probably zero.

    I'm guessing that the list of specific models is just to give you some examples...

    What I believe that they mean by "All AK Types..." and "All AR Types..." is ALL <PERIOD>.

    The M1A is an interesting example since other than having a detachable mag, it doesn't have a pistol grip or telescoping stock and does not rank any higher on the "OMG SCARY" scale than most any "hunting" rifle to the layperson. (except maybe for the SOCOM II w/ the black (ie scary) quad rails)

    Well then I wonder if Magpul will just start putting out 10-round PMAGs for a big-bore caliber. Unless the feds want to ban that entire cartridge, they wouldn't be able to stop the sale and production.

    The "only X amount loaded" clause could still apply though.

    I wonder what companies outside the US, like Sig, HK, et al. think of this. Forcing them to use thumbhole stocks just made them do a bit of R&D. Banning their product entirely means a loss of revenue for the company. I know they aren't U.S. citizens, but we have the biggest gun market, and it would really hurt those companies.

    Then they, and all their employees as well as their marketing outlets, are all on our side of the lobbying factions!

    458 SOCOM FTW

    10/22 with a pistol grip or thumbhole stock would be a no go.

    Plus, whenever we see any sort of list, we need to recoil at the whole thing, not check to see if what we have or want is on it.

    Otherwise, eventually, there will be a list, with what you have or want on it.

    Eventually, there will be a list with guns and names, then in the end, just a list of names.

    I expect that they would start manufacturing AR and AK rifles w/ no pistol grip or telescoping stock and throw a 10-round magazine in the box.

    I would also assume that these "new" models would be modular so you could easily replace the furniture as well as still accepting pre-ban mags.

    It's '94 all over again... We're not any "SAFER", but we certainly do "FEEL" better.

    Ah. Thanks for the correction.

    Ya know, it really is bad when an American proposes banning a .22 rimfire of any kind! The .22 is about as 'American' as firearms can get.

    The closest I see to the Ruger 10/22 is the Intratec Tec-22 Scorpion....which uses 10/22 magazines.
    Yet no other pistol or rifle is on the list that uses those same magazines...like the Ruger Charger, 10/22, etc.
    Oh wait..the Tec-22 is (a) Intratec, (b) black, (c) shaped like a machine pistol, (d) is inherently evil, will sprout legs, and go on a killing rampage.

    What a moron DF is. She needs to retire immediately and well....expire. She would not be missed.

    Those in question never were in complete control of their mental faculties.

    Doesn't meant they're stupid, though. Intelligent and nutty = DANGEROUS

    mrvco, if they include harsher limits on importation of semi-automatic weapons, these companies could be seriously hurt by this legislation.

    Derry, thanks for the compliment.

    I'll be curious to see what is actually in the bill on that topic. If I had to guess, it will be a "domestic assembly" and/or "domestic parts mix" issue... Whatever it is, there will be money involved and it will at least increase the cost of doing business in the US for those companies.
