According to the Washington Post, Senator Feinstein’s gun control bill not only seeks to severely restrict the sale and transfer of modern sporting rifles, but also “prohibits the sale or transfer of high-capacity, ammunition-feeding devices currently in existence” – a clear reference to gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
While most gun owners don’t own an AR-15, millions of Americans own handguns for personal defense. Many if not most of these “regular” handguns are sold with magazines that hold 10 rounds. It’s these personal defense weapons that Senator Feinstein seeks to restrict. If her bill becomes law, millions of Americans will no longer be able to sell, give away or pass their handgun to their family in their will.
It is unlikely that the entirety of the proposed bill will become law. However, is seems probable that portions of the proposed legislation will. If you are interested in maintaining control of your firearms, call us now to set up a Gun Trust at 901-372-5003.
