Sen. Dianne Feinstein Introduces Bill to Ban 205 ‘Assault Weapons’

As Reagan would say, “There she goes again”  The gun totin Senator, Dianne Feinstein, wants to carry her gun—but take away your guns.

“She said, “We were tragically reminded this weekend of the deadly nature of assault weapons when a shooter used one to kill 11 people and injure 9 more at a Lunar New Year celebration in California.”

However, Feinstein’s proposed ban would not have prevented the suspected gunman from possessing the gun used in the attack.

In addition to banning the “sale, manufacture, transfer and importation” of 205 specific firearms, Feinstein’s bill requires “a background check on any future sale, trade or gifting of an assault weapon covered by the bill.” (This would apply to guns grandfathered in, if the bill were to become law.)

Her bill also contains an addendum to “[prohibit] the sale of assault weapons to individuals under 21.”

While cutting back on cops, she wants you to be unable to defend yourself.  She prefers you and your family to become victims.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein Introduces Bill to Ban 205 ‘Assault Weapons’

AWR HAWKINS, Breitbart,  1/24/23    

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) introduced legislation Monday to ban “205 military-style assault weapons by name” and prohibit transfer of “high capacity” magazines.

Feinstein cited the January 21, 2023, Monterey Park shooting as the impetus for the reintroduction of the “assault weapons” ban.

She said, “We were tragically reminded this weekend of the deadly nature of assault weapons when a shooter used one to kill 11 people and injure 9 more at a Lunar New Year celebration in California.”

However, Feinstein’s proposed ban would not have prevented the suspected gunman from possessing the gun used in the attack.

In addition to banning the “sale, manufacture, transfer and importation” of 205 specific firearms, Feinstein’s bill requires “a background check on any future sale, trade or gifting of an assault weapon covered by the bill.” (This would apply to guns grandfathered in, if the bill were to become law.)

Her bill also contains an addendum to “[prohibit] the sale of assault weapons to individuals under 21.”

The alleged Monterey Park attacker was 72 years old and Monday’s alleged Half Moon Bay attacker was 67 years old.

  1. Didn’t know Senator Feinstein was still alive, but why is she still stealing our oxygen and why is she still beating that same old dead horse?

  2. letmepicyou says

    It seems like 95% of the people behind the push for gun control are ALL JEWS.

    Gee, I wonder why that is.

  3. The senile, wicked witch of the west needs to retire already. And that goes for Pelosi too.

  4. State National says

    Failure to protect and defend the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution. Abrogation of sworn oath. Try for treason and when found guilty, hanged by the neck until dead. Publicly.

  5. You’re not banning anything.

    SHALL. NOT. BE. INFRINGED.

    Folks, I posted the following comment on another site yesterday but I believe it applies to this story also. We need to educate ourselves and not be misled by our corrupt politicians and the media. We need to understand that freedom is not free. From time to time it requires great personal sacrifice.

    Most people are ignorant of the fact that the Second Amendment does not grant the US citizens the right to bear arms. It affirms that it is a God given right, an “inalienable” right which the president, congress nor the supreme court have the power to take away. The Second Amendment limits the government, not “we the people”. It doesn’t mean they won’t try as most of our founding fathers new from time to time the tree of liberty would eventually have to be watered with the blood of patriots and tyrants. Our corrupt government can only take what we give them. It’s time to reread the Declaration of Independence as well as the Constitution. Here is an except all should read as a reminder that freedom is not free:

    “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

  7. I thought that the Devil had taken her since she has been low on the radar recently. Then I realized that even Satan doesn’t want her.

  8. So the crypt keeper is unfamiliar with the Bruen decision?

  9. Feinstein appears to be senile. She thinks all black colored guns are assault weapons, and she no longer understands the meaning of the word UNCONSTITUTIONAL. The court system needs to start imposing huge fines and penalties against politicians who pass laws that are frivolously unconstitutional. They are wasting the time of the judiciary, which should be processing criminals instead.

  10. This woman needs to gather up her Depends and go to the house, and then we’ll see what new left wing lunatic California voters punish us with.

  11. Rumplestiltskin says

    There has got to be a law that NO ONE CAN TAKE A PUBLIC OFFICE IF THEY WOULD TURN 80 WHILE IN THE TENURE OF THAT OFFICE !

    Very few 80 years olds think clearly enough to participate in the running of our country, such that we can never have another Demented president such as Biden who is apparently so compromised by his Age-Related Dementia, he is noted to not be the one running our government. We cannot allow this to EVER happen again, even if we must force them to take a battery of cognitive test just to run for a federal office, such as the Presidency or for Congress, or even Governorships for that matter !!!

  12. Wouldn’t be surprised if the list was stolen from Illinois list…

  13. Robin Itzler - Patriot Neighbors says

    If we can’t term out elected officials, at least make it so no one can be 80 years old and in office. Dianne Feinstein’s STAFF is running things, which is why two Democrat Marxists (Reps. Katie Porter and Adam Schiff) have already announced they are running for her seat – even before Senator Feinstein announced (well, uh, really her staff would make the announcement) that she is NOT running again.

  14. Rico Lagattuta says

    For some reason it does not resonate in either her brain or people like her. You can’t get guns off the streets unless you can get all the illegal guns that all the illegal gang members carry. You can’t get rid of guns on the street unless you get rid of all the illegal drugs on the street. This is not rocket science. This is just common sense.

  15. Rottweiler says

    It was a 9mm semi-automatic not some assault weapon. May we remind each other this is the strictest gun law state and it will never be enough for these do as I say and not as I do progressives. She has a full security team, and she also needs to retire, this bag of bones and Pelosi need to hang up their old cold bones. They always want to punish lawful gun owners, but I will leave this state before they come to collect any of my weapons. These are the progressives that let all of the hard-core criminals out on the streets and also letting anyone come into this country unvetted by the millions. Funny how they don’t understand how crime is up 200% as Gascon has now been letting out pedophiles by the thousands. These people are the lowest of low, these progressives, they ruin everything they touch.
