    (CNN) —

    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said Sunday the president will soon have legislation "to lead on" in the gun control debate, announcing she will introduce a bill next month in the Senate to place a ban on assault weapons.
    "We'll be prepared to go, and I hope the nation will really help," Feinstein said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
    The senator said she'll introduce the bill when Congress reconvenes in January and the same legislation will also be proposed in the House of Representatives.
    "We're crafting this one. It's being done with care. It'll be ready on the first day," she said, adding that she'll soon announce the House authors.
    "It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation, and the possession. Not retroactively, but prospectively. It will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets," she said. "There will be a bill."
    Gun rights legislation has gained renewed attention since Friday's deadly elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, that left 20 students and six adults dead.
    Many lawmakers and politicians have called for stricter gun control laws at the federal level, including a revisit to the 1994 former assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 but has yet to be reinstated.
    Feinstein, who helped champion the 1994 legislation, said she and her staff have looked at the initial bill and tried to "perfect it."
    "We believe we have (perfected it). We exempt over 900 specific weapons that will not fall under the bill, but the purpose of this bill is to get ... 'weapons of war' off the street of our cities," she said.
    The senator added she believes President Barack Obama will support the legislation. As a presidential candidate in 2008, Obama said he would support such a ban, but he has been criticized for failing to work toward tighter gun control laws since taking office.

    You know, an unintended consequence of this law may be the sudden explosion in the number of real, fully-automatic "assault weapons" in circulation. After all, in for a penny, in for a pound - if I'm going to the bucket for ten years for a semi-auto, might as well convert it to rock 'n' roll.

    Weird Barry walked right up to the edge of saying he was going to ban so-called "assault weapons" during his speech tonight, but backed away from actually calling for a ban.

    Don't they (gun grabbers) have to go through Congress 1st? Obama Care went through Congress when the Democrats still controlled it but they don't atm.

    This could just be so much lip service by Obama's gang to hoodwink his various idiot support bases.

    I wonder how many of these arms manufacturers are owned (at least partly) by some of Obama's $$$ making gang.

    As George Rockwell once said "their :jew: God is money"

    Here's how it went years ago,someplace else.
    State and federal government makes all gun ownership taxable,for which you need a registration when you buy one new.If you are caught with an untaxed/unregistered gun you are fined about 100x the tax.This makes people sell their gun or hid them,but either way the government gets more cash.All this will add up to is more expensive guns and more criminals stealing them to resell illegally-and the government knows it.

    Here's the dealy and how you turn this against the libs. Blame it on them, in toto.

    How? In early 2009 they had both houses of Congress and could do what they wanted. They did not renew or replace the assault weapons ban that was in effect until 2004.

    Yes because a ban will really stop anyone determined. Only making it harder on the law abiding citizen and business as usual for the criminal.

    But its ok to pass laws to let drones fly overhead on US soil and to assasinate and imprison US citizens without trial.

    Does anyone know if the gun used in the recent mass shooting was a registered gun? It's kinda relevant.

    Senator Feinstein Pushes National Buyback of Guns http://washingtonexaminer.com/sen.-feinstein-suggests-national-buyback-of-guns/article/25166
    December 21, 2012 | 3:39 pm | Modified: December 21, 2012 at 3:45 pm 819 Comments

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that she and other gun control advocates are considering a law that would create a program to purchase weapons from gun owners, a proposal that could be compulsory.

    “We are also looking at a buy-back program,” Feinstein said today in a press conference. “Now, again, this is a work in progress so these are ideas in the development.”

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., already discussed the possibility of a buy-back law for his state, but he made clear it would be a forced buyback.

    “Confiscation could be an option,” Cuomo told The New York Times yesterday when discussing semiautomatic weapons. “Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

    Australia implemented a mandatory buyback program in 1996 following a mass shooting. “The law banned semiautomatic and automatic rifles and shotguns and put in place a mandatory buy-back program for newly banned weapons,” USA Today recalls. “The buyback led to the destruction of 650,000 gun.”

    Some liberal activists want the policy imitated here. “That would be like destroying 50 million guns in America today,” the Center for American Progress’ Matt Miller wrote after noting that Australia eliminated 20 percent of the weapons in the country. “The Australian ‘outlaw and repurchase’ option is one approach. But if Congress balks at banning certain weapons entirely, it could make gun owners an offer they can’t refuse. Instead of $200 a gun, Uncle Sam might offer $500.”

    Feinstein also said that that former President Bill Clinton had volunteered, on a phone call, to help her get a new gun law passed.

    “[Clinton] was talking about the battle back in 1993 with the bill that, interestingly enough, was introduced and passed within the year fo 1993 and went into effect in 1994,” she said. “And, of course, he was president and the White House came alive and was very very helpful in enabling the passage of that bill both in the senate and in the House. So, to have him part of the team again is really quote special for us.”

    Sure, I can see gun owners lining up for blocks to turn in their $1200 Colt AR-15 for a $500 voucher to WalMart, right-o.

    They can't print enough money to cover what this would cost, but given the mindset and fortitude of the average AR owner, they might as well just pass a law for confiscation with no compensation as the owners will grumble, scream and beat their chests on the Internet, but in the end, they will show up the have their rifle sawed in half while not appreciating the irony of wearing their molṑn labé T-shirt at the time.

    I guess I'm just being way too cynical and I'd love to be surprised, but visiting arfcom and thehighroad after a prolonged absence just to see how the Sandy Hook shooting is playing out among them does not inspire confidence.

    There are already people there making shopping lists of bolt-action rifles for when their ARs are destroyed. When those are banned as "evil sniper rifles" they will no doubt be seeking recommendations on which airsoft rifle has the best stopping power.

    Guns pour in at L.A. buyback events

    Thousands of people line up to exchange guns for supermarket gift cards at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and the Van Nuys Masonic Temple.

    December 26, 2012, 10:34 p.m.
    Mall parking lots were packed with after-Christmas shoppers. But nowhere were the lines longer than at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and the Van Nuys Masonic Temple, where thousands of people came to exchange their guns for Ralphs gift cards.

    Cars queued up for blocks at the drive-through events, with the city giving cards worth up to $100 for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and up to $200 for assault weapons. There was a bit of haggling involved, but the guns were all taken.

    "What do you got?" an officer in Van Nuys asked a man in his late twenties as he pulled up in a green Mazda.

    Photos: L.A. gun buyback

    "Just one handgun, I've had it since high school," the man replied.
    "Will you take $50 for this?"
    "Sure."

    Many came bearing more than one gun. They pulled 22 pistols from the trunk of one white Honda, a haul that earned the driver $1,000.

    Two men in a pickup truck with two children in the back seat handed over a rifle, a pistol and a MAC-12, altered with a silencer.

    Organizers and some participants credited collective outrage and anguish over the gun rampage in Newtown, Conn., for the turnout. But motivations were often a bit more complicated.
    "That young guy shot up all the kids and they blamed the mama because the mama had the weapons in the house," Valerie Butler said, in explaining why she was waiting in line two hours in South Los Angeles to get rid of an old handgun.

    Yet Butler, 50, said she was not getting rid of both of her guns.

    "Just one," she said, and laughed. "There's a bunch of nuts out here, and they're coming in when you're sleeping. You got to protect yourself."
    Cities across the nation, grasping for ways to react to a series of mass shootings this year, have organized gun buybacks to get weapons off the street.

    Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa pushed the city's annual event from Mother's Day to Wednesday in reaction to the killing Dec. 14 of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. By the afternoon, the event had already surpassed the 1,673 guns collected last year, and officials were scrambling to get more gift cards, which were donated by Ralphs.
    Many of the drivers said they were turning in their guns because they rarely used them and were eager to snag grocery cards.

    "If I could get $100 of free groceries, it's worth it," said Charles Edwards, 60, waiting in line next to his old .22 revolver after driving to Los Angeles from Fontana. "I wouldn't do it for $40. That's why people are here. They feel bad about all that's happening, but times are tough."
    He still has a shotgun at home. "That's all I need," he said.

    Edwards said authorities needed to better organize the buyback so the lines weren't so long. He watched numerous people sit in line for a spell, then just drive away, he said. "I thought I could just drop this thing off. They need to have this move faster."
    Most of the weapons recovered were "mom and pop guns," police said — hunting rifles, shotguns — but they got a few dozen assault weapons as well.
