Senator Feinstein’s Letter to the Prez: Ban Imported “Assault Rifles, Pistols”

Senator Diane Feinstein (courtesy dailycaller.com)

The President
The White House
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

During your State of the Union address, you stated that you want to make 2014 a “year of action.” We write to urge you to take immediate action to address the significant number of assault weapons that are being imported into the United States in contravention of federal law. We respectfully request that you take steps to ensure that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) fully enforces the ban on the importation of these military-style firearms . . .

A provision of the Gun Control Act of 1968, codified at 18 U.S.C. § 925(d)(3), prohibits the importation of firearms that are not “generally recognized as particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes.” In recent years, however, importers of firearms have taken advantage of ATF’s interpretation of the “sporting purposes” test to evade the import ban. In 1998, the Department of the Treasury — which then housed ATF — issued guidance that interpreted the import ban to prohibit only semiautomatic rifles that use magazines originally designed for a military rifle. Many semiautomatic firearms on the market today do not have a military origin but are modeled closely after military firearms. These military-style firearms are not prohibited under the current import ban, even though they are functionally equivalent to prohibited rifles with a military origin. In addition, the Treasury Department’s 1998 guidance allows foreign-made firearms to be imported into the United States without military features, even though these firearms have the capacity to fire multiple times in quick succession without the need to reload and can easily have military features attached.

As a result of the Treasury Department’s unnecessarily restrictive interpretation of the sporting purposes test, imports of military-style weapons have increased dramatically in recent years, helping to fuel deadly gun violence along the Southwest border and in neighboring Mexico. According to data obtained from the Commerce Department and the International Trade Commission and analyzed by The Center for Public Integrity, 2.96 million rifles and handguns were imported into the United States in 2009, more than double the 1.32 million firearms imported in 2005. In January of this year, Russia’s Kalashnikov gun maker announced that it plans to sell in the United States up to 200,000 rifles and shotguns, many of which are designed after the Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifle. An analysis by the Violence Policy Center found that more than 700 Romanian AK-47 variant rifles were identified in 134 federal gun trafficking prosecutions involving illegal smuggling from the United States to Mexico and other Latin American countries.

For example, one imported Romanian AK firearm, the WASR-10, was carefully designed to exploit the sporting purposes test and has become a favorite of the gun traffickers that profit by arming Mexican drug trafficking organizations. The importer of the WASR-10, Century International Arms, circumvents the import ban by taking the following steps: First, the company imports the inexpensive weapon without any military features, to avoid contravening the ban. Next, the weapon is disassembled, and American-made parts are added, to make the weapon “American-made,” not “foreign-made.” The magazine well is also modified to accept higher capacity ammunition magazines. Finally, assault features — which would be illegal if added to a foreign-made weapon — are added to the now-American-made weapon, rendering the weapon an assault rifle for all practical purposes. The resulting firearm is then sold on the civilian market, either to be used in violent acts here at home or smuggled across the border into Mexico.

WASR-10s have repeatedly been found in the arsenals of top drug kingpins and their associates. For example, at least one WASR-10 was used in May 2008 to kill eight police officers in Culiacan, Mexico, a city in the northwestern part of the country. An analysis conducted by The Center for Public Integrity found that, over the last four years, WASR-10 rifles comprised more than 17% of the firearms recovered at Mexican crime scenes and successfully traced back to the United States. In all, according to a memorandum by the Council on Foreign Relations published in July 2013, over 70% of the 99,000 weapons recovered by Mexican law enforcement since 2007 were traced to U.S. manufacturers and importers.

We urge ATF to close the loopholes that allow the importation of military-style weapons into the United States. Such an approach should, at a minimum:

– Prohibit importation of all semiautomatic 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 semiautomatic 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.

We urge you to review enforcement of the sporting purposes test and take the necessary regulatory steps to stop the importation of all military-style, non-sporting firearms, and the assembly of those firearms from imported parts. We have endured too many funerals and mourned the loss of too many innocent lives to accept less than full enforcement of the import ban. Thank you for your attention to this important issue.  [h/t dailycaller.com]

    One has to wonder if those WASR-10s got into the kingpin’s hands via Fast and Furious.

    1. avatar CarlosT says:

      Yup. Now we see the real purpose of the fiasco.

    2. avatar DaveL says:

      Well, notice they say “17% of weapons successfully traced back the the United States“. Do you think they submit weapons marked “property of the Mexican Army” to the ATF for tracing?

      1. avatar Yellow Devil says:

        Yeah I saw that too. I remembered from a news article somewhere that even though a large majority of traceable weapons in Mexico can be linked back to the U.S., the far majority of the weapons (I forgot the %, but it was clear majority) recovered are actually untraceable, with serial numbers scratched off and the such. And of course there is a significant smuggling ring of personnel and material coming not from us, but from Mexico’s southern border. It is probable far easier to get fully automatic assualt rifles from war-torn countries to the south than try to convert the legal, semi-automatic ones from the North. Context, again, is everything.

        1. avatar Jeremy S says:

          “The resulting firearm is then sold on the civilian market, either to be used in violent acts here at home or smuggled across the border into Mexico.”

          That’s odd. I thought there were legal ways to use rifles also. Weird. Must be my mistake.

        2. avatar Cliff H says:

          To be fair, Jeremy (much as I hate to when it concerns DiFi), every use of a firearm is by its nature a violent act. The error here was that if she had phrased it properly, “…violent criminal acts…” it would have been a lie so blatant even Obama would have recoiled from it.

        3. avatar Bob says:

          Cliff H., shooting at a target or a skeet is not “a violent act”.

        4. avatar B says:

          The 2nd Amendment protects violent legal acts, it has nothing to do with shooting clay birds or steel except as training for said violent legal acts.

      2. avatar jdelcjr says:

        Cliff H I shoot at paper targets. This is not a violent act, and I am not preparing myself for the event of a violent act. This is nothing more then a sport of accuracy. Its merely a sport of competing with yourself. I have no imaginary thoughts in my head that the targets are people. Its a sport very similar to golf or shooting hoops at the foul line, Although that is not why bearing arms is protected under the Constitution. I’m not making a statement on the Constitutional rights of gun owners, I’m refuting that all shooting is a violent act by its nature. Competitive Shooting and long distance shooting is a sport like any other sport. Its a skill test.

    3. avatar rlc2 says:

      Dont forget that for the arms to have made it to Mexico, they had to go one of two ways-

      State, for military approved donations of old M16s to the Mexican Army, that everyone knows are sold off to the narcos,

      (and dont forget Hillarys repeat bleats about the discredited ‘90% of guns from gun stores’ meme, just two weeks before Brian Terry was killed, was simply lies and misdirection, in support of Obama’s campaign promise to the Brady bunch to do more “under the radar” after he was elected).

      and

      CIA, for all the rest, as outside the US is their AOR.
      The idea that ATF was alone in doing this is just silly. Federal LEOs regard them as bumbling cowboys for good reason, and keep them in the dark on anything important, and thats why ATF didnt know their key straw-man purchaser was an FBI snitch.

      So lets all be clear-
      FandF didnt just happen because some over-active nitwit manager in Arizona got a wild idea.

      DiFi and her senior staff would have been read in, by DOJ, as she was and is the Chair of the Intel Committee, overseeing CIA and NSA.

      So this is not just more state managed theater, but morally reprehensible mis-direction and lying about the facts, again, and likely again, as more PR to feed the StateRunMedia noise generator to cover for something more to come.

    3-gun is a sport, a pretty huge sport at that. I doubt the Feinsteininator has seen 3-gun guns, otherwise she would be in the hospital after a stroke.

    I also like how she is appalled importers follow “the ATF’s interpretation”. The ATF is regulating the importation, of course they should follow the ATF’s interpretation. Who does she think she is that her interpretation supersedes that of the actual regulatory authority? Seems there is some in-fighting.

    1. avatar Jeff says:

      it’s not a politically correct sport, therefore it’s not valid.

      to Feinstein, “sport” is shooting clays, birds, and big animals – and even those are on the chopping block in CA thanks to things like the awful plight of the lead-eating condor.

    Yes, those drug kingpins wouldn’t be murdering people if they didn’t have access to the WASR-10. Because after having kidnapped, bound, beaten, and had thrown on the ground in front of you some poor citizen or police offiver, the “ability to fire rapid rounds in quick succession without reloading” is necessary to execute them. You’ve found the solution to the problem!

    On that note, I’m going to start a campaign to ban the import and sale of the Toyota Avalon because it is the most common vehicle driven through flea markets and grocery store windows by the elderly.

        Whatever guns the ATF has smuggled across the border under this admin or previous admins is a drop in the bucket compared to the State Department. Tens of thousands of arms and material has been authorized for export to a corrupt Mexican gov’t. for years if not decades. Then the guns are stolen by or sold to the cartels.

        So how many of the guns confiscated can be traced back to an importer or manufacturer as part of a direct gov’t sale?

          I don’t know how many could be, but I can tell you how many will be: zero.

          Both the U.S. and Mexican governments go to great pains to ignore the flow of police and military weapons to the cartels, even when those weapons include machine guns, hand grenades, and anti-tank weapons. At least when it comes to what they tell the public.

    I once was going to buy a WASR-10. But the tag said it can only be used in violent acts here at home or to be smuggled across the border to Mexico. As I am not an ATF agent, I have no plans to smuggle anything to Mexico. Also, I had other plans for my WASR-10 then using it to commit violent acts here at home. I wanted to look at it and take it to the range. But those were not options for it. So I got an AR-15 instead.

I don’t recall reading about this in the news. and if there is, why should law-abiding citizens be precluded from arming up to the same level as the bad guys?

    Dear Mr. President,

    We need to ban guns from responsible citizens. Whenever possible, we must use the actions of criminals, and imply that all gun owners are potential criminals. We will use fancy buzzwords like “assault weapons” and “military-style” to convince ignorant voters that we have their safety in mind. It’s for the children.

    First, we will go after those “evil” AR-15s and AKs. They are for our protection, not for the tax-paying peons who pay our salaries. Next we will declare our generosity, and subsequently push for 7 round and 5 round clips like New York has done. Soon, we can target hunting rifles as being functionally equivalent to sniper rifles. Clearly no civilian should have those.

    I’ve got some really good stuff here. As soon as a madmen shoots up another gun free zone and incurs mass casualties, we will go after as much gun control as possible. Don’t worry about the lackluster response to hosting Sandy Hook anniversary parties. We have plenty more tax dollars to waste.

    I know its tough that voters can’t stand you because of your constant bungling of Obamacare, and that fact that you have proven to be an incompetent leader. Fortunately, many voters in CA are dumb enough to elect me time and time again. Not to worry, most voters are more into feelings than facts, and your speech writers are top notch. Mr. President, you are still an excellent spin doctor, and your can – do “let me be clear” attitude still resonates with ignorant Americans everywhere.

    Let’s stay the course, and diminish freedom and independent thought wherever and whenever possible.

Hey, the Constitution protects HER powers, not our rights!

    Unintended Consequences: If The Feckless One approves of this import ban, American gunmakers will be gearing up to build even more AKs and other import-ban guns. Think of this as an “on-shoring” move for US gunmakers.

    What I think is interesting is her statement:
    “Finally, assault features — which would be illegal if added to a foreign-made weapon — are added to the now-American-made weapon, rendering the weapon an assault rifle for all practical purposes.”

    Where she seems to have mistakenly used “assault rifle” (which has specific meaning) instead of “assault weapon”. Normally DiFi is careful about that slip-up, at least in written press, in keeping with the strategy of conflating the two in the minds of the uninformed (like “automatic” with no qualifiers)

    “As a result of the Treasury Department’s unnecessarily restrictive interpretation of the sporting purposes test, imports of military-style weapons have increased dramatically in recent years, helping to fuel deadly gun violence along the Southwest border and in neighboring Mexico.” — Senator Feinstein’s letter to our President

    It’s a good thing I didn’t have a mouth full of food or drink when I read that line because I would have sprayed it all over my monitor. I cannot believe Feinstein would write something like that.

    In case the insanity escapes anyone, the federal government’s very own Department of the Treasury — the agency charged with regulating the importation of firearms through their ATF arm — was actively exporting those very same firearms to Mexican Cartels via their Fast And Furious “operation” and directly contributing to the “gun violence” of which Senator Feinstein speaks!!!!!

    Ok I have had a little to much BS from this POS Feinstein!! Lets go back in time say 1939 to be exact! Adolf Hitler started gun confiscation to, in all amazement for “SAFTY OF THE GERMAN PEOPLE” sound familiar This was done because the German people were in an economic depression, much like we are in today, NO MATTER WHAT LIES THE OBAMA ADMIN TRY AND FEED US!! The Polish Jews were taking a lot of the German peoples jobs. Hitler used this as a scare tactic to get his admin to power. This brings me to my next issue with Feinstein.
    We the United States of America said to our self’s, this isn’t right! You cant put human beings in ovens and begin ethnic cleansing! So after Pearl Harbor, we marched into this big war! And let me remind you Ms. Feinstein, it wasn’t HARSH LANGAUGE the US GI’s were using to pull your people out of those ovens, IT WAS AMERICAN FIREARMS. Wake UP PEOPLE!! So now we know where this ends, an oven for us and our guns! If you don’t learn from history, your doomed to repeat it!!!! So Ms. Feinstein, WHAT OVENS DO YOU HAVE PLANNED FOR US, THE U.S. PEOPLE THAT PULLED YOUR PEOPLE OUT THE FIRE TO BEGIN WITH???? She has the balls to say “IVE SEEN THE BODIES”, so did my grandfather, 20 to 30 deep, half an football field worth of dead Jewish people who didn’t even make it to the ovens, they starved to death waiting for there turn to be killed. He told me he was 17 years old and his platoon full of young boys, the roughest, toughest soldiers on this earth at that time, looked on in HORROR at what the Nazis had done to these people. He told me there wasn’t one dry eye from anyone, and these were boys that had seen it all, friends dying in there arms, or blown to pieces all over them. So don’t BULLSHIT ME FEINSTEIN!! There are still some Americans that remember how we saved your ass’s!! But yet here you go again, wanting to disarm America just as the Nazis did…..Hmmmm what OVENS do you have in mind for the American Gun Owner ADOLF, sorry FEINSTEIN?????? Reality Check Time!!!

      if you were into IT in the 1990s, you’d remember that “high-strength encryption” versions of software with built-in 128-bit encryption capabilities could only legally be downloaded by US users. there were export versions of software that had only 48-bit or 64-bit encryption built-in.

      obviously about as effective as the average gun control scheme.

        Yes, and the funny thing is with regards to the encryption, half the time you just had to “e-sign” that you weren’t a terrorist or foreign national.

          specifically, 128-bit PGP was around since the early 1990s, and the guy that wrote PGP was even targeted by the US government since he made 128-bit PGP freely available everywhere.

    Assault Features???

    because adding a pistol grip makes any gun “assault” worthy.

    Assault: (noun),
    law : the crime of trying or threatening to hurt someone physically
    : a violent physical attack
    : a military attack

    So adding a pistol grip… to any firearm magically transforms it from a regular firearm to an… “ASSAULT! firearm.” …and now we have “assault” pistols.

    “For example, at least one WASR-10 was used in May 2008 to kill eight police officers in Culiacan, Mexico, a city in the northwestern part of the country…We urge ATF to close the loopholes that allow the importation of military-style weapons into the United States.”

    !!?? How about you guys tell Eric Holder to stop selling them to Mexican cartel. Start with that.

    “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”

    ??!! We are just following the law. The law requires a requisite number of american made parts (922R) in order to classify the firearm as American made so we can modify simple things like the wood buttstock. Seriously?

    Her request regarding thumb-hike stocks is telling though. Somehow, banning collapsible stocks or whatever didn’t reduce crime at all. So, naturally, the next step is to ban more arbitrary features. I’m fully aware that her goal is disarmament, just pointing out the logical fallacy of the argument. Not that logical fallacies have ever bothered the idiots of CA (where I had the misfortune of living for 14 years).

    I get a real kick out of when she talks about adding assault features. Let’s see, if I add a flash suppressor to my AR-15, no one will know that I am assaulting them.

She is a politician who will trample the rights of a least a third of our population, to save a few hundred lives each year. If she is really interested in saving lives, she should try banning alcoholic drinks.

    Alcohol is not a necessity for anyone. It is often used by people committing crimes. It results in a lot of drunk driving deaths. With the ban of just this one unnecessary product, a lot of lives will be saved. But we all know what happened the last time they banned alcohol. It would ruin a politician these days, despite the great number of lives that would be saved. This is something I tell anti gun people who tell me that guns should be banned because they are unnecessary. I ask them if they are willing to give up their daily happy hours because their drinks are unnecessary. Usually they say something along the lines that it helps to alleviate stress and promotes more social interaction. I tell them that shooting relieves my stress and both items can kill people each year so why are they so eager to ban what I like but not what they like?

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.”

I am not callous to the loss of life that has happened, but there is more death and destruction in countries that do not allow any kind of gun to be sold, imported or manufactured.

I don’t know of any other job that you get paid for, and you don’t have to do anything but behave like IDIOTS!!! That is is called an I D 10 T error.

    I love how people are hating on guns so much. Guns kill people, guns are bad. I can list five things that kill more people then guns. Knives, cars, other people, bleach and cows. Shall we start preparing the laws to ban those as well? Take away our right to arm ourselves and you will live in a country of people that will feel unsafe in their own house.

    She still dont get it…….its not a weapon problem, its a PEOPLE PROBLEM! We will still have funerals and injuries from weapons with a lesser sustainable rate of fire because there are idiots out there that wont STOP PULLING THE TRIGGER!!

    As every generation passes, we as a society ALLOW more and more of the inherent freedoms our forefathers faught for to be diminished by an ever growing and more intrusive government. WE’RE LETTING THIS SHIT HAPPEN! We’ve turned our back on our neighbors in our own towns and communities and have gotten so caught up our own private little world and whats happening on tv and facebook that we cant see whats happening in our own backyard.

    Its time to wake up and stand up, people……before its too late….

    End the war on drugs and that will end the violence. The only reason cartels can afford these weapons and use them is because the war on drugs causes drug prices to go up creating a profitable black market business.

    The far right makes drugs illegal (removing personal rights) and then the far left exploits the violence created by said drug laws to take away our guns (more lost freedom) the two party system is a scam, there are lies and both sides
