Report: Congress To Move Against Guns: “It Will Ban the Sale, the Transfer, the Importation and the Possession”
December 16th, 2012
Amid heated debates about what to do in the aftermath of the Connecticut school shooting which took the lives of 20 children and six adults, Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) is prepared to take action on the first day Congress meets after their current break.
Come January 1, 2013, Feinstein will introduce new legislation that would ban assault rifles similar to the bill she championed in California.
“I’m going to introduce in the Senate, and the same bill will be introduced in the House — a bill to ban assault weapons,” Feinstein said on NBC’s Meet the Press.
“It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession, not retroactively, but prospectively.”
“The purpose of this bill is to get… weapons of war off the streets.”
“Who needs these military-style assault weapons? Who needs an ammunition feeding device capable of holding 100 rounds?” Feinstein wrote on her campaign website.
These weapons are not for hunting deer — they’re for hunting people.”
