As I sit here on January 1, 2013, a number of things are playing out on the perpetual stage that is our national and international theater. The older I get, the more I see that we are being managed like a captive herd. Some of us are just not very domesticated….Certainly not to the liking of our handlers. Horrific crimes are used to control those who are not criminals.

From what I can put together, within a couple of hours after Sandy Hook, Feinstein jumped up and announced her forthcoming bill. Here is a nice little prelude of what gun control brings to citizens:

The “Summary” of Feinstein’s legislation is below. No one has been able to find the actual legislation that is purportedly being summarized. My opinion is that this legislation is the legal framework for the United States adherence to the UN Small Arms Treaty.

If you love freedom, respect the US Constitution, have regard for innocent life and would like to see your children or grandchildren live with a modicum of inherent rights, you must be concerned with this legislation.

This simply scares the heck out of me:

Summary of 2013 legislation

Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:

  • Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
    • 120 specifically-named firearms;
    • Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one or more military characteristics; and
    • Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.
  • Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
    • Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test;
    • Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test; and
    • Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans.
  • Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
  • Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
    • Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment;
    • Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes; and
    • Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons.
  • Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
    • Background check of owner and any transferee;
    • Type and serial number of the firearm;
    • Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
    • Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
    • Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration. (link to Feinstein’s site)
