In the summary (listed above and here) on Sen. Feinstein’s website the legislation is said to have a stated goal of ‘strengthening’ the 1994 Assault Weapons ban and removing loopholes which have been worked out to allow more lax gun laws. Also notice the term derogatory term ‘legitimate hunter’ is given as if this is meant to weed out those who are not ‘legitimate hunters’. Over 120 specific firearms are banned and many others will be restricted. Magazines greater than ten rounds appear to be a great concern to these gun control advocates, while single shots are considered low priority at this point (next step is flintlocks, knives and archery weapons). As one Breitbart contributor wrote in an article, this would ban many of America’s favorite semi-auto handguns including Glocks, Smith & Wesson’s, etc.
Feinstein offers several articles and studies from various news services and research groups which are supposed to present documentation in defense of her legislation. She fails to let us know what a blow this is to our liberty and how it goes directly against the second amendment.

Barack Obama chipped away at the first amendment in his first term. In this second term he and those in congress who back him are working together to neutralize our second amendment rights. Without the second amendment to protect us, all the rest of our Bill of Rights and our Constitution will be gone. Now is the time to stand for the rights our founders fought for.
“The Constitution shall never be construed… to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” – Samuel Adams
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” -Thomas Jefferson
