That's what "not retroactive" means.
What the law, "if passed" actually will do
is not known. I can only comment on the facts I know now.
In Florida you could still own a pre ban AR.
Still own a pre ban hi cap mag and buy or sell them during the 94 to 04 ban years.
It sounds like you won't be able to buy pre ban item like last time, of course how they
can prove whether or not you owned them before the ban is another issue.
Regardless I'm not parting with anything
that may be banned. And if everyone sticks
together on that they will have to cave.
Unless they plan on jailing millions of law abiding Americans. Here is what she said again, why would she mention the words "retroactive" & "prospectively" if it was to
be an outright ban on possession?
“I’m going to introduce in the Senate and the same bill will be introduced in the House, a bill to ban assault weapons. It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession. Not retroactively but prospectively. And it will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets. So there will be a bill. We’ve been working on it now for a year,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet The Press” during a discussion about guns following Friday’s deadly mass shooting as a Connecticut school.
Influencing or applying to a period prior to enactment
Wow, thanks for the schooling, I had no idea what retroactive meant. I guess you learn something new every day.
I guess you failed to read the part of the quote you just posted where she said "It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession
." That is the part that I think you are missing. If something is illegal to possess, like crack, marijuana or LSD, then by definition there IS NO GRANDFATHER CLASE! With that it might do you some good to actually listen to what our reps are saying so you don't get caught with your pants down. I am fully aware of how things were in the 94 AWB days, I lived through them. That ban did not have a prohibition on POSSESSING the guns that were made prior. Her quote sounds to me like they are going to try and ban possession out right. I could be wrong though.
a. The act or fact of possessing.
b. The state of being possessed.
2. Something owned or possessed.
3. possessions Wealth or property.
4. Law Actual holding or occupancy with or without rightful ownership.
See, I can look up fancy **** on the internet too.
