Sen. Feinstein's New Version of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban

UPDATE: This bill was introduced on Jan. 23, 2013 as the Assault Weapons Ban (S 150). Learn more and weigh in on S 150 now.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is working on a new version of the federal Assault Weapons Ban, a law she helped write in 1994 and has been trying to revive since it expired in 2004. The legislation, which will be introduced in 2013, proposes a ban on assault weapons and large ammunition magazines, strips and drums that hold more than 10 rounds -- but would grandfather in weapons and magazines purchased legally before the new law takes effect. The bill would stop the sale of more than 100 assault weapons, but exempt more than 900 specific hunting and sporting weapons, according to Sen. Feinstein.

By supporting, you will be telling Congress to stand behind a new federal Assault Weapons Ban.

By opposing, you will be telling Congress that you are against a new federal Assault Weapons Ban.
