H.R. 4269 – “To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.”
The scariest part in reading the description of the proposed bill is the part where it states “and for other purposes.” What exactly are those other purposes?
We reported on this previously, but it is important to continue to let you know exactly what is in this bill. They tell us it will be in committee and has ‘zero’ chance of passage, but stranger things have happened in our compromised government. And the pressure for gun control on our Reps is extremely high right now.
The gravity of the situation
You can bet that the Democrats and POTUS who are pushing this bill will never truthfully answer that question as to what are those ‘other purposes.’ Disconcerting would be a good word to describe this bill, but that somehow does not fully capture the gravity of the situation if this bill were to pass.
Definition of a semiautomatic pistol
“A pistol that utilizes a portion of the energy of a firing cartridge to extract the fired cartridge case and chamber the next round and requires a separate pull of the trigger to fire each cartridge.”
That is how the bill describes a semiautomatic pistol, which is pretty much any pistol currently made other than a revolver.
The bill also further outlines an semiautomatic pistol as a pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any 1 of the following: a threaded barrel, a second pistol grip, a barrel shroud, the capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location out of the pistol grip, and a semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm.
So that means that even if you do not have a threaded barrel on your G18, it will still be illegal because it is the semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm.
All AR and AK pistols are out of the question, and if you have a threaded barrel on your semiautomatic pistol it will be illegal. It further outlines “A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the ability to accept more than 10 rounds.”
Definition of a semiautomatic shotgun
“Any repeating shotgun that utilizes a portion of the energy of a firing cartridge to extract the fired cartridge case and chamber the next round and requires a separate pull of the trigger to fire each cartridge.” It goes on to specifically list the makes and models of banned shotguns that fit this description.
If your shotgun has any type of barrel shroud it would be considered illegal. Read More
