HR 1808, the bill Democrats in the House rammed through on a party-line vote is an extreme package of gun confiscation measures. If this terrible legislation becomes law, our friends at
the National Rifle Association point out that it would in essence abolish the Second Amendment, tens of millions of law-abiding gun owners would be turned into felons and their lawfully-acquired property would be subject to confiscation by federal agents.
According to an analysis by the Firearms Policy Council, H.R. 1808 would make it illegal for a person to import, sell, manufacture, or transfer the following:
All semi-automatic rifles that can accept a detachable magazine and have at least one of the following features: a pistol grip; a forward grip; a folding, telescoping, or detachable stock; a grenade launcher; a barrel shroud; or a threaded barrel.
All semi-automatic rifles that have a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.
Bump stocks and any part, combination of parts, component, device, attachment, or accessory that is designed or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semi-automatic rifle but not convert the rifle into a machinegun under NFA definitions.
All semi-automatic pistols that can accept a detachable magazine and have at least one of the following features: a threaded barrel; a second pistol grip; a barrel shroud; a capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip; or a semi-automatic version of any automatic firearm.
All semi-automatic shotguns that have at least one of the following: a folding, telescoping, or detachable stock; a pistol grip; a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 5 rounds; the ability to accept a detachable magazine; a forward grip; a grenade launcher; or a shotgun with a revolving cylinder.
Any ammunition feeding devices (magazines, strips, drums, etc.) capable of accepting more than 10 rounds." (Firearms Policy Coalition analysis)
