Feinstein asks Obama to Ban Import of Semi-Auto Rifles

Katie Pavlich has the story here.  The list of things Feinstein has requested be banned from import include:
Prohibit importation of all semi-automatic rifles that can accept, or be readily converted to accept, a large capacity ammunition magazine of more than 10 rounds, regardless of the military pedigree of the firearm or the configuration of the firearm's magazine well;
Prohibit semi-automatic rifles with fixed magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds;
Prohibit the importation of the frame or receiver of any prohibited rifle, regardless of whether it is incorporated into a fully manufactured firearm.
Prohibit the practice of importing assault rifles in parts and then constructing the rifles once they are in the United States by adding the requisite number of American-made parts;
Prohibit the use of a "thumbhole" stock as a means to avoid classification of a rifle as an assault rifle; and
Prohibit the importation of assault pistols, in addition to assault rifles.
NSSF has also asked that gun owners contact their senators and urge them not to sign on to the letter to the President.  Please contact Senator Warner and Senator Kaine and polite urge them to decline signing Senator Feinstein's letter.  Remind Senator Warner that he is up for re-election this year and that you will pay close attention to what he does on this issue.
