The next AWB is already in committee.

The House Bill is H.R. 6257

Here is what they want to ban. Yes, this is VERY real.


  • (b) DEFINITION OF SEMIAUTOMATIC ASSAULT WEAPON- Section 921(a) of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding after paragraph (29) the following:

  • `(30) The term `semiautomatic assault weapon' means--

    • `(A) any of the firearms, or copies or duplicates of the firearms in any caliber, known as--

      • `(i) Norinco, Mitchell, and Poly Technologies Avtomat Kalashnikovs (all models);

      • `(ii) Action Arms Israeli Military Industries UZI and Galil;

      • `(iii) Beretta Ar70 (SC-70);

      • `(iv) Colt AR-15;

      • `(v) Fabrique National FN/FAL, FN/LAR, and FNC;

      • `(vi) SWD M-10, M-11, M-11/9, and M-12;

      • `(vii) Steyr AUG;

      • `(viii) INTRATEC TEC-9, TEC-DC9 and TEC-22; and

      • `(ix) revolving cylinder shotguns, such as (or similar to) the Street Sweeper and Striker 12;

    • `(B) a semiautomatic rifle that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least 2 of--

      • `(i) a folding or telescoping stock;

      • `(ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;

      • `(iii) a bayonet mount;

      • `(iv) a flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor; and

      • `(v) a grenade launcher;

    • `(C) a semiautomatic pistol that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least 2 of--

      • `(i) an ammunition magazine that attaches to the pistol outside of the pistol grip;

      • `(ii) a threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer;

      • `(iii) a shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel and that permits the shooter to hold the firearm with the nontrigger hand without being burned;

      • `(iv) a manufactured weight of 50 ounces or more when the pistol is unloaded; and

      • `(v) a semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm; and

    • `(D) a semiautomatic shotgun that has at least 2 of--

      • `(i) a folding or telescoping stock;

      • `(ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon;

      • `(iii) a fixed magazine capacity in excess of 5 rounds; and

      • `(iv) an ability to accept a detachable magazine.'.

They aren't going after just the magazines this time. They want it all.

I'd like to say I am surprised, but I am not. It's an outrage that anyone believes this will have a positive effect on the crime rate in this country. They obviously didn't pay too much attention from 1994 to 2004. Scalia needs to go knock some skulls together and ask,"What part of the Heller discussion did you not understand?"

That is outragous.

How will they treat the assault rifles we already own? Sorry I'm a newb.
I'm not giving up my AK-47 or L1A1.

That looks to be a duplicate copy of the Assault Weapons ban in Commiefornia where it turned law abiding citizens into felons with a stroke of a pen. Stock up and bunker down gentlemen because if the magic mulatto
gets to be POTUS we're in for a helluva ride

Looks like they want to ban a lot of weapon designs completely this time around, not just some of the features. The way the bill reads all designs under (30(A)) are banned from new transfer regardless of the features listed in subsequent sections. That means no "post ban" ARs or AKs.

Interesting that the bill was introduced and sponsored by Republicans. I think there has pretty much always been an AWB in committee since the previous one expired, but this one probably has the best shot at getting passed once the economy and Iraq are resolved.
