Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is expected to introduce her assault weapons ban bill on Thursday.

The bill is expected to ban 120 specific guns and ammunition magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

The legislation is also expected to require gun owners to register semi-automatic rifles categorized as “assault weapons” with the Federal Government under the National Firearms Act – which may require assault rifle owners to pay a $200 registering fee and submit photographs and fingerprints to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
