Gun Ban detailed includes a lot of guns.

It may be that each of us own now an illegal gun if this bill passes. I would have to say I would have 2 that are at this point considered illegal by Feinstein's bill.

The bill includes a lot of gun more then I thought it would. Handguns does not seem to be defined though I am not sure if it is certain handguns or all handguns. If it is all I am screwed I have 4 then .

Looks like our right is headed out the door if this passes.

I used to think this, but it isn't necessarily true. It depends on the type of ban and the specific policies. The data shows that sometimes bans help- no ban is perfect though.

This is not an endorsement for a gun ban however. (although I do think for certain guns it might be a good idea)
