Thought we’d all get distracted by the list, didn’t you? It seems Aaron over at The Weapon Blog noticed something a bit more sinister in Feinstein’s bill.
According to the bill, any semiautomatic firearm that uses a magazine — handgun, rifle or shotgun — equipped with a “pistol grip,” would be banned. That sounds like a limitation, but it is not.
A pistol grip (on page 2) is defined (on page 13) as “a grip, a thumb-hole stock, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip.” In other words, the gun list does not matter. It is a smokescreen designed to distract people from the true meaning of the bill. And it has done a magnificent job. It worked!
So if you can hold it, you can’t have it. Isn’t that special?
