    FEINSTEIN’S ‘AWB’ MONSTER IS BACK FROM THE DEAD AND WORSE THAN EVER BEFORE

    It’s like a Hollywood sequel that no one wanted, far worse than the original, Diane Feinstein’s ‘AWB’ monster is back.

    It was useless the first time around and two features made for a mythical “Assault Weapon”, this time it’s just one, lowering the bar for what they want to ban and ultimately confiscate.
    So if you liked the criminalization of your individual rights and freedom with HR8 and HR1446 you’ll love having to register (get permission from the government) your so-called “Assault Weapon” so that it can be easily confiscated later on.

    If you have a semiautomatic rifle that ‘has the capacity to utilize a magazine that is not a fixed magazine’ and a ‘pistol grip’, ‘or any other characteristic that can function as a grip’. Congratulations! You are now the proud owner of an “Assault Weapon”.

    But wait, there’s more!

    If you have ‘a semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to utilize a magazine that is not a fixed magazine; and does have any 1 of the following… a 'second pistol grip' ‘or any other characteristic that can function as a grip’
    Congratulations! You also the proud owner of an “Assault Weapon”.

    After all, according to our leftist authoritarian overlords and firearm experts extraordinaire, the way you hold the gun makes all the difference in whether it’s an “Assault Weapon”. And who are we to argue with those who want to crush our civil rights and confiscate our guns?
    So don’t worry if you only have a ‘manually operated bolt, pump, lever, or slide action’ firearm. Those will soon be included in the ‘manually operated bolt, pump, lever, or slide action’ firearm loophole.

    If you can hold your gun or ‘grip’ it the anti-liberty left will call it an “Assault Weapon” and will want to tax and take it from you. Anti-liberty leftists made up the term “Assault Weapon” and it has no set definition, so it can mean anything.
    The time is now to voice your opposition to this freedom-destroying abomination.

    Remember: If we don’t STOP this in the Senate it will most certainly pass in the House.

    Suggested Subject: "NO to S.736 Feinstein’s so-called 'Assault Weapon' ban"

    Dear Senator:
    I am writing to you today to voice my opposition to S.736 Senator Feinstein’s ‘AWB’ so-called “Assault Weapon” ban. The facts show that the original did not affect crime and its sequel will be even worse with an even bigger overreach.
    These types of scams only impact the freedom and civil rights of the innocent. Criminals by definition don’t follow the law, so these types of draconian measures will only impact the liberty of the law-abiding.
    This bill is clearly designed to cover as many firearms as possible. Needing only a few more tweaks to cover everything else. The fact is there is no set definition to the made-up terms “Assault Weapon” or “Military Style”, thus these phrases could encompass any gun or any weapon. I demand that you vote NO to this abomination of freedom and civil rights.
    I will be monitoring your actions on this important matter through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.

    Respectfully,

    Link to the bill:

    https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/senate-bill/736?s=5&r=2

    S.736 - A bill to regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.

    Notice the part about "to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited". They are getting very blatant about their intent.

    That phrase has been around for some time and has been a regular part of the statement of purpose of many gun control bills.
