Isn't a "pistol grip" considered a "military characteristic"? Wouldn't that forbid just about every handgun on the market?

likely no.

It would be considered one when "added" to a rifle, but not one when it is part of the basic design of the weapon.

dont go full nitpick in this and circle into useless debate... concentrate on the real matters and problems with this proposal.

What does that even mean? AR-15's and AK-47's were designed with pistol grips and they are forbidden under previous AWB's. I can't think of any weapon where they are "added" in any meaningful way.

Sorry, but if it can be read to ban most handguns, I guarantee that it WILL be read that way.

Absolutely. Bureacrats always default to the most they can possibly get away with, and it usually takes years for SCOTUS to take them down a notch.

There's nothing to discuss. Piece of shit thugs in Congress and the White House acting exactly as we expected all along.

Hopefully it won't pass. That's all.

Is there anything in Feinstein's law addressing mental health, and/or proper care and security of firearms to keep them out of the hands of those who would want to do harm with them?

And Bob, seriously, who is going to "debate" this piece of dogshit on WB? We are all going to pick it apart like you did to the Christmas turkey last night.

The fact that it can ban ANY pistols is the problem. Same goes for rifles. This will do fuck-all to prevent any kind of crime or mass shootings, but it will piss all over our rights in the process.

Well, gun registration and confiscation worked so well in Armenia, NSDAP Germany, the Soviet Bloc, China and all the other countries that adopted it and saw purges or increases in violent crime.

Bayonet mounts. Yep that's the sign of an extremely dangerous weapon.

How ambiguous is that line? I have a Mossberg 590a1, which is essentially their military model of the pump shotgun does that count? It does not have a detachable magazine but it does have a bayonet lug and the other various features that make it more military than the Mossberg 500.

What makes that super funny is the muskets that gun grabbers want to allow us the privlage of owning have bayonet mounts

It could go 1 of 2 ways.

They put out this extreme gun ban with no intention of it going through and they will come back with something that still bans guns but its not as extreme. That way people feel like they won something.

Or they could go with it as is.

Republicans like Jack Kingston want gun bans as long as video games and mental health are also put on the table.

Don't dare mention that violent crime is up 17% in Feinstein's gun control paradise of California.

This will go nowhere. Simple grandstanding feel good liberalism.

It is concerning that the president would gladly sign such a ban, but no way it even gets to his desk.

Does a 1911 have a military characteristic?
