The most common attack is that the bill is a “gun grab” and will result in confiscations. That is simply false.
First, every single American who legally owns any of the weapons restricted by the bill at the time of enactment keeps their weapons. Period.
Any buy-back program would be completely voluntary and run by local jurisdictions. Furthermore, there is no registration requirement in this bill. The government will not ask you to register your lawfully owned weapons.
Let me be clear: No legally owned weapons will be taken. None.
Additionally, to make absolutely certain no legitimate hunting or sporting weapons are swept into the manufacturing and importation ban, the bill includes more than 2,200 weapons that are specifically excluded – by name – from the bill.
