Yep, folks, here we go. Not that we ever stopped to begin with….

“H.R. 6257: Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2008” introduced June 6th, 2008, but sooner or later will be either A)headed to commitee or B)have the wording introduced into other bills.  Some interesting verbiage to note, too:

(b) DEFINITION OF SEMIAUTOMATIC ASSAULT WEAPON- Section 921(a) of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding after paragraph (29) the following:
‘(30) The term ‘semiautomatic assault weapon’ means–
‘(A) any of the firearms, or copies or duplicates of the firearms in any caliber, known as–
    ‘(i) Norinco, Mitchell, and Poly Technologies Avtomat Kalashnikovs (all models);
    ‘(ii) Action Arms Israeli Military Industries UZI and Galil;
    ‘(iii) Beretta Ar70 (SC-70);
    ‘(iv) Colt AR-15;
    ‘(v) Fabrique National FN/FAL, FN/LAR, and FNC;
    ‘(vi) SWD M-10, M-11, M-11/9, and M-12;
    ‘(vii) Steyr AUG;
    ‘(viii) INTRATEC TEC-9, TEC-DC9 and TEC-22; and
‘(ix) revolving cylinder shotguns, such as (or similar to) the Street Sweeper and Striker 12;

In particular, that little line that reads “or copies or duplicates of the firearms in any caliber” should tell you exactly where bills like this are headed. In any case, here’s to fighting the good fight – get proactive, buy something on National Ammo Day, send letters to your congresscritter, call your local representatives, and develop a voice.
