Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is pushing to ban 205 commonly owned semiautomatic firearms.
The various firearms, pistols among them, are to be prohibited under the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019, introduced by Dianne Feinstein.
On January 10, 2019, Breitbart News reported that the ban was focused on commonly owned semiautomatic firearms and “high-capacity” magazines.
Feinstein announced on Twitter: “Americans across the nation are asking Congress to reinstate the federal ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. If we’re going to put a stop to mass shootings and protect our children, we need to get these weapons of war off our streets.”
A press release describing the ban explains that Feinstein is gunning for 205 specific commonly owned semiautomatic firearms. Additionally, she calls for a ban on any “assault pistol” that weighs more than 50 ounces, and she seeks a ban on “assault pistol stabilizing braces that transform assault pistols into assault rifles by allowing the shooter to shoulder the weapon and fire more accurately.”
