NRA: Feinstein Bill Would Impose $200 Tax On Many Semi-automatic Rifles

By Charlie Spiering

The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action warns gun owners that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s new assault weapons ban would impose a $200 tax on hundreds of existing semi-automatic rifle models.

According to Feinstein’s bill summary, the legislation requires owners of semi-automatic rifles – deemed as assault weapons – to register their gun with the Federal Government under the National Firearms Act.

The National Firearms Act, first enacted in 1934, was passed to choke the sale and transfer of automatic weapons.
