Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., released a summary today of her assault weapons ban bill which calls for a ban of “sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing” of specific models of “120 specifically-named firearms.”

The bill also bans semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.

Full summary posted below:

Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:

• 120 specifically-named firearms

• Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic

• Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds

Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:

• Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test

• Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test

• Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans
