Default What will happen to our beloved xd's?

What will happen to our beloved xd's if they pass a high capacity ban? Every xd I have seen carries over 10 rounds of ammunition. I fear that these guns will be banned.... Thoughts anyone?

Summary of 2013 legislation




Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:
  • Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
    • 120 specifically-named firearms;
    • Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one or more military characteristics; and
    • Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.
  • Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
    • Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test;
    • Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test; and
    • Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans.
  • Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
  • Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
    • Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment;
    • Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes; and
    • Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons.
  • Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
    • Background check of owner and any transferee;
    • Type and serial number of the firearm;
    • Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
    • Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
    • Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration.

So, unless you have a threaded barrel XD the pistol itself should be fine, but there's nothing in there that allows of grandfathering in 'hicap' mags.

Feinstein should probably add ray guns and fusion bomb launchers to her radical list too..HAHA! We all need to contact our congressman and senators and let them know the obvious..SHE is NUTS! Can you imagine a Ruger Ranch rifle being banned? M1A rifles being banned? And the requirement to register such arms and pay a $200 fee to the government? Per Weapon!! And on top of that, requiring your spouse to hand over such guns when you die? I think that as far as it stands now, we need to take serious action..telling those in power that the registering of mental ill patients would make much more sense making it harder for those people to gain access. You know, they always go after the law abiding citizen. It is their easy, feel good way to attack the problem. And as far as Obama is concerned..you were warned! If you voted him in you share the blame..just my two cents.

I did not vote for Obama, but.....
Just for the record, Mitt Romney was an adamant supporter of an assault weapon ban

semi automactic pistols:
Unloaded weight of 50 oz (1.4 kg) or more
What's the UNLOADED weight of any XD/XDm,Glock/M&P pistol????????

A semi-automatic version of a fully automatic firearm. Glock 17??? there is a FA G-18

Rifles
Grenade Launchers?
(more precisely, a muzzle device that enables launching or firing rifle grenades, though this applies only to muzzle mounted grenade launchers and not those mounted externally).

Name the last act of violence commited with one? PLEASE


Why doesn't she just admit she wants ALL guns confiscated.

Rant over, just bought slightly used a xd 13rd mag for $25, new ones here are $44+

Romney was but he would not have included such weapons as the Mini 14/30..M1A, or others. And I am quite sure he would not have proposed the requirement of registering grandfathered in weapons. You know what would be nice? A proper definition of an Assault Weapon. As it stands now, they include all black rifles, AK's, and others but.. none of these are true assault weapons. Name me one SWAT member or Military person who would use a non-select fire weapon in battle. I venture to say..NONE. Look a like AR's and such are not assault weapons in any way, shape or form. Gun Banners need to know that. Just sayin"!!!

Assault weapon is such a BS politically charged word. Anything that looks scary to them and has one of those evil detachable hi capacity 'clips' has to be good for nothing but mass murder and should be illegal

The fact is no gun control, common sense gun control as they call it, will ever do anything to curb the violence of gangs or mentally unstable individuals or any other criminals for that matter. The only thing that comes from 'common sense' gun control is making good people decide if they want to become outlaws or they want to give up the freedom to defend themself and their family.

Just remember that banning ANY weapon is just the beginning. They will start with so called "assault" guns such as AR's and AK's...basically anything they saw in a movie. But if a perp can't get those anymore, they will choose a semi-auto BAR hunting rifle....or semi auto shotgun with sabot slugs....and then we will be looking at a ban of ALL semi-auto guns. After that, some perp will use a pump shotgun to great effect...and they will come after those too. Then one day a perp will use a single shot or double gun to great effect and they will come after those. Just because there was a crime or two committed with guns doesn't make us all criminals who aren't allowed to own guns!!!!! Why are we going to ALLOW THIS??? IT CAN'T BE ALLOWED. The whole gist of this is to take all guns away from the people so we can't defend ourselves...first rule in the communist playbook. THAT is the REAL AGENDA folks. Don't be fooled by the false propaganda of "saving our children". It's a scam..don't fall for it.
