Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Thursday introduced a bill banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips today.
The bill would go further than the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban which expired in 2005. That ban required that a gun meet two categories to be banned. This new piece of legislation requires a gun to meet only one category.
Feinstein said the ban would “help end countless mass shootings which have devastated families and terrorized communities.”
Her new measure will ban the sale of about 150 types of firearms, including some rifles, shotguns, and handguns, as well as the sale of high-capacity magazines.
