Vol. 21, No. 15 04/11/2014

Contact Your Senators and Representative to Stop Proposed 

Semi-Auto Firearm Importation Ban

We recently reported that U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), sponsor of the federal 
"assault weapon" and "large" magazine "ban" of 1994-2004, is asking President Barack 
Obama to direct the BATFE to reinterpret a provision of the Gun Control Act of 1968 to 
prohibit the importation of various semi-automatic firearms and their parts.

In a letter to Obama, the text of which was included in an article published by the Daily 
Caller, Feinstein said that, "at a minimum," the BATFE should:

prohibit importation of all semiautomatic rifles that can accept, or be readily converted 
to accept, a large capacity ammunition magazine of more than 10 rounds . . . . prohibit 
semiautomatic rifles with fixed magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds, 
prohibit the importation of the frame or receiver of any prohibited rifle . . . . prohibit 
the practice of importing assault rifles in parts …. prohibit the use of a "thumbhole" 
stock . . . . and prohibit the importation of assault pistols.
