    Not everyone will have to abide by Senator Dianne Feinstein's gun control bill. If the proposed legislation becomes law, government officials and others will be exempt.

    "Mrs. Feinstein's measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel," the Washington Times reports.

    The Huffington Post confirms these exemptions, and adds that guns owned prior to the legislation becoming law will be permissble, too. "[T]he bill includes a number of exemptions: It exempts more than 2,200 hunting and sporting weapons; any gun manually operated by a bolt, pump, lever or slide action; any weapons used by government officials and law enforcement; and any weapons legally owned as of the date of the bill's enactment."

    The bill's measures include stopping "the sale, manufacture and importation of 158 specifically named military-style firearms and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. It would also ban an additional group of assault weapons that accept detachable ammunition magazines and have at least one military characteristic," according to the Huffington Post.

    The left-leaning website adds: "Other new provisions include requiring background checks on all future transfers of assault weapons covered under the bill and eliminating the 10-year sunset that allowed the original ban to expire."

    Exempting retired law enforcement personnel is wrong. With due respect to LEOs, once they are no longer active duty they need to abide by the same laws as the rest of us. If the law is bad for them, then its clearly a bad law and should be repealed.

    Feinstein Gun Control Bill to Exempt Government Officials

    Rigel42. I think it a great idea to exempt retired LEO. At least I will get to keep my guns.

    I guess I can quit writing my reps.

    Thats what some LEO thought when they purchased their own patrol rifle in Mexifornia** with Chief's permission, however Mexifornia's AG has told them prior to retiring they had to turn in the patrol rifle as it didn't meet Mexifornia's laws and as a retiree they were not exempted!

    ** any heartache with Mexifornia, read the book: Mexifornia: A State of Becoming: Victor Davis Hanson: 9781594032172: Amazon.com: Books

    Now does this fall under equal protection under the law?

    There should be a constitutional amendment that says whatever laws the citizens have to abide by the government entities do also. That would stop some of the absurdity.

    Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.

    Does the above mean it exempts the government official using the weapon or does it mean that if a weapon is used by any government agency it is not the "illigal" list, thus making the AR platform legal to own?

    Am I the only one who is sick and tired of the elitist scum who, in the guise of public service, are ruining this country? I am sad to say that we need a Constitutional Amendment requiring some sort of test to allow people to vote!
    crossfireltd and msgt/ret like this.

    It is call the Constitution to include the Bill of Rights! Of course now the Elitist Nobility in Washington are trying to re-write it and make us Serfs again!

    IT MEANS ANY GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE IS EXEMPT! To include your City Clerk or Fire Department or Public Works as they are "First Reponders"!

    I kind if agree with you that is the intent, but I don't think it is worded that way.
