Well, the text of S.150 Assault Weapons Ban Of 2013 is now available: S.150 bill text.
Pretty bold, in-your-face words for a right that "shall not be infringed."

Ah, the Heller v DC decision: it consigned us to a walk toward Hades by leaving the darned door open to any and all manner of gun control schemes. Time for SCOTUS to get some backbone, right quick. A fight's coming.
Interesting little tidbit in this bill, as well, to attempt to thwart the effects of any judgment of unconstitutionality that's slapped against this proposed bill. Essentially, she's betting the whole smash won't be declared unconstitutional:
15 SEC. 7. SEVERABILITY.
If any provision of this Act, an amendment made by this Act, or the application of such provision or amendment to any person or circumstance is held to be unconstitutional, the remainder of this Act, the amendments made by this Act, and the application of such provision or amendment to any person or circumstance shall not be affected thereby.
