‘Seizure & Forfeiture’: Massive New Gun Control Bill on House Floor

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is set to roll out an executive order that will expand background checks on firearms purchases.

WASHINGTON — House Rep. David Cicilline (NH) and 123 other Democratic members of the House of Representatives introduced H.R. 4269, a measure titled “The Assault Weapons Ban of 2015.”

The 124 page bill, introduced on December 16, outlines sweeping gun control measures “To Ensure That The Right To Keep And Bear Arms Is NOT Unlimited”

It would prohibit the manufacture of most detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifles, numerous semi-automatic shotguns configured for defensive purposes, any semi-automatic rifle with a fixed magazine over 10 rounds (except for a tubular magazine .22), any semi-automatic pistol like the HK SP-89, any semi-automatic pistol with a fixed magazine over 10 rounds, revolving cylinder shotguns, various other named and described firearms, frames and receivers of banned guns, and ammunition magazines over 10 rounds, except those for tubular .22 rimfire rifles.

The bill has a slim chance at passing.

Some language in the massive bill says things like, “To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.” … “Seizure And Forfeiture Of Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Devices” … “Compensation for surrendered semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices”
