Re:  Weapons Ban of 2013

Dear Senators Feinstein and Boxer:

I am writing as a concerned California voter to object to your co-sponsorship of legislation described by you as:

A bill to regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.” (pdf)

This bill seeks to, among other things:

  • Ban the sale, transfer, manufacture or importation of 157 named firearms;
  • Ban all semi-automatic rifles that can accept a detachable magazine;
  • Ban all detachable-magazine semi-auto pistols that have any of the following: a threaded barrel, second pistol grip, or magazine that mounts anywhere other than the grip;
  • Ban any handgun that is a semi-automatic version of a fully automatic handgun; and,
  • Ban all semi-automatic rifles and handguns that have fixed magazines that accept more than 10 rounds.

Our Constitution limits your powers, Senators, and the Second Amendment to our Constitution means what it says when it tells the Congress that:

“ . . . the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Your proposed legislation is a brazen violation of our Second Amendment and, as such, is unwise, unenforceable, and unconstitutional. I respectfully call upon you to acknowledge the severe limitation placed by our Constitution on your power to control the people’s right to bear arms. Please withdraw this unfortunate bill immediately.

Sincerely yours,

/s/ Kevin Forrester
