I assume in handguns as well. As I read it, I believe it says magazines hold no more than 10. I don't believe it specified so it would cover both

Last AWB had a 10 round limit on handguns. Same guys wrote that one. You can expect this one to be much the same or worse.

Assault Weapons? You're starting to sound like one of them.
You been living behind a big rock?

The Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB), or Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act, was a subtitle of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, a federal law in the United States that included a prohibition on the manufacture for civilian use of certain semi-automatic firearms, so called "assault weapons". The 10-year ban was passed by Congress on September 13, 1994, and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton the same day. The ban only applied to weapons manufactured after the date of the ban's enactment. The Federal Assault Weapons Ban expired on September 13, 2004, as part of the law's sunset provision. There have been multiple attempts to renew the ban, but no bill has reached the House floor for a vote. *However, this time around the Pres is pushing for a renewal.

What I'm hearing, and don't take this as the gosphel yet, is they may take NYs lead and push the 7 round per mag limit, that makes it a back door ban on most semi auto handguns because most on the market are 10+ rounds.

No matter what,, we all have to ban together and fight like hell.

I would not put it passed them to try this. I hope it doesn't come to that, and I agree we need to fight for our rights.

Even if they pass a 10 or 7 round limit it won't stop the mass shooter.
Eric Harris in the Columbine High School shooting used a Hi-Point 995 with only a 10 round mag, but he had 13 mags, he still was able to fire 96 rounds before killing himself.:eek:
The only thing that will STOP a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.:mad:

No.

Gun owners should not allow the opposition to define civilian sporting rifles as assault weapons. To use the same terminology as they do implies they are correct. We should correct them on every error they make until they collapse under the magnitude of their own false beliefs.

They were wrong in 1994 and they are wrong now.

I am on your side, even though I do not own a semi-automatic sporting rifle. We lose this one, then maybe my handguns will be next.

qwiksdraw; understood & agree 101%!

Whoever came up with the label "Assault Weapons" was an idiot! They are semi-autos NOT military auto weapons. BTW, my Mossberg 500 is readily available but I don't own a S/A Sporting Rifle, either, I prefer handguns.

So, let's just say they go for our handguns? Will you give them up, or call them in as stolen?

I may want to change my signature to read:

"Former Bersa Thunder Conceal Carry Owner until it was lost, misplaced, stolen or some other sh*t"
:D

I'm going to get some 6" PVC and caps and build me a tube so I can hide my guns in the woods behind the house, I'll just need to remember which tree I buried them under.

@ SoldiernurseNoMo.....My understand is, the use of the term Assault Weapon" was defined in the '94 AWB to differentiate it from the true Military select fire rifles, so, in my mind, that would mean the Military have Assault Rifles, civilians have (in the minds of the left) Assault Weapons. If anyone has more accurate information on this, please bring it forth. Ps. Thank you for your service, I served twice as a combat medic, 1Bn The Black Watch RHR.
