Plain text of the ban
Courtesy Doug Ross.
Looks like lawfully owned “assault weapons” purchased pre-ban are excluded, but there’s no pre-ban stamp for high-cap mags. No more to be sold, period. The black market will love them some of that. Also, police and retired police are exempt. Which begs the question, why not retired military? Why not security guards or retired security guards? Are retired gangstas exempt, too? For the fairness?
Too, there’s no sunset clause in this. Once it passes, it’d be up to feckless, ball-less Republicans to try to undo it, and its certain it would meet with filibuster challenges from the left.
If this passes, we’ll see civil disobedience at the very least; and perhaps much worse. Bank on it.
