Feinstein’s Bill will ban further production of all firearms with detachable magazines. This includes pistols with detachable magazines. This includes that cute little pink .22 rifle you just bought for your daughter this Christmas. What if you already have them? Well – you can keep them, IF you register them in accordance with the National Firearms Act (NFA), the same as automatic weapons and suppressors are registered and controlled today.
If you do nothing – if you think, “This will never happen,” you will wake up with the wolf at your door, ready to collect your weapons, ready to make you a felon for not Federally registering your currently legal guns. CLICK HERE TO WRITE CONGRESS!
How long does it take to get your CURRENTLY LEGAL gun registered through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) in accordance with the NFA? Here is a quote from ATF’s own website:
The sheer volume of applications submitted for ATF review has dramatically increased in recent years. In fiscal year 2005, for example, ATF processed 41,579 NFA applications of all types. By FY 2011 that number had increased to 105,373, with a 25% decrease in the number of NFA examiners available to process the work. Currently, ATF’s customer service goal is to process an Application to Make and Register a Firearm (Form 1) and an Application for Tax Paid Transfer and Registration of a Firearm (Form 4) within 6 months of ATF’s receipt of a correctly executed application.
Keep in mind, they are talking about current times. When people attempt to register 300 Million guns, this number will increase dramatically. It will take a year or more. Oh, did you notice the line about “correctly executed application”? Don’t dare make a mistake, or you will start all over.
How much will the ATF tax cost when your registration is approved:
Yes, $200.00 per weapon that must be registered. What will you have to register? Everything that is newly banned, anything with a detachable magazine, anything with a thumbhole stock, anything with one military characteristic, anything that holds more than 10 rounds, detachable or not, anything with a flash suppressor, even California Legal AR-15′s with bullet buttons will be included.
Will someone out there please tell me what kind of evil a thumbhole stock is? Wait – what about a flash suppressor? I would love to know.
How many guns do you have? If you have:
- a hunting rifle, (maybe two so your spouse or kids can go too.)
- a .22 rifle for your kids, or squirrel hunting
- a 9mm pistol
- a .22 pistol because they are so fun (and cheap) to take to the range
You will have to come up with $1000.00 to keep them all. For many people in rural areas, the guns I listed are an average family’s gun inventory.
All that, and two years after the ban, we will still have mass shootings, we will still have mass casualty events. Why? Because insane people and criminals will still find ways to hurt people. The Criminals WILL NOT register their weapons. Don’t you get it – they are CRIMINALS!! So, once again, the good, law-abiding citizens will be the ones to pay, and I do not mean just with money. They will pay with blood, when they cannot protect their families, or when something worse comes along like “Government Tyranny” as stated in the Constitution.
This proposed legislation is NOT to be taken lightly. We need every single person who even considers that someday they will want a gun – of any kind – to act. Write your Congressmen and women today!!!
