NRA Opposes Both Feinstein's S.1916 And Curbelo's HR 3999

The NRA announced yesterday that it opposed both Sen. Dianne Feinstein's S.1916 and Rep. Carlos Curbelo's HR 3999. These bills would ban any part that could increase the rate of fire of a semi-automatic fire.

The opposition was announced via an interview with the Washington Free Beacon's Stephen Gutowski.
"We are opposed to the Feinstein and Curbelo legislation," Jennifer Baker, a spokesperson for the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, told the Washington Free Beacon.
The text for Sen. Feinstein's S.1916 can be found here while the text of  Rep. Curbelo's HR 3999 can be found here. The Trojan Horse in both bills is this language.
any part, combination of parts, component, device, attachment, or accessory that is designed or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semi- automatic rifle but not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machinegun.
As I noted in earlier blog posts on the issue, this could be anything from a replacement trigger reset spring to a Geissele trigger to a lightweight AR bolt carrier to a heavier AR buffer. In other words, the BATFE Technology Division could use this to ban anything and everything related to a semi-automatic rifle short of the gritty mil-spec trigger.


  1. Looks to me like it would likely ban gun oil.

  2. It's one more attempt to get the 'nose under the tent'... Sigh

  3. That bill also seems to ban springs, rubber bands, and shoe strings.

  4. Tax payer dollars wasted again. You just can't fix stupid. Ban drinking and driving, cell phone use while driving and politicians from making more stupid laws. A gun has never killed any living thing or destroyed anything by its self. God made man Samuel Colt made them all equal. Its time to save the American Government form it's self.These people are more dangerous than any gun on the face of the Earth.
