Words mean stuff.

The illustrious and badass Jennifer points us to the core of the upcoming AWB, by way of The Weapon Blog.

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!

Any semi-automatic firearm that exists, with anything on it you can grip, is banned. (There is a grandfather clause for old stuff.)

The list is meaningless tripe. It is camouflage for the real purpose of the bill. When the president said he is not going to take away your guns, well, Feinstein’s bill puts the lie to that.

Magazine size does not matter. Brand name does not matter. It doesn’t matter if it’s black. If you can grip it, it’s banned under this bill.

Emphases are mine.

Are you paying attention, you Fudds out there?  This bill is on the level of "not banning cars...just cars with a steering wheel, gearshift and pedals."    YES, IT BANS YOUR DEER GUN ARMOR PIERCING LONG RANGE SNIPER RIFLE, at least if it's semi-auto.  Or could be defined as semi-auto in a later bill.  Or could be defined as a child-killing instrument of destruction by any whim of the Political Class and/or the LSM.

These people want ALL our guns.  All.  Of.  Them.  Yes, yours too.  Consider the skullduggery that had to be employed for this exercise in deception, then ask why they'd do such a thing if they weren't aiming for a larger goal somewhere down the line.

Wake.  Your.  Ass.  Up.
