Proposed AWB by Feinstein has grandfather clause.

I haven't read an analysis yet, but there is a clause about transfers that I don't understand and I would have to get a legal opinion on as to whether it covers transferring existing grandfathered firearms only via an FFL dealer. Or it might even say that a grandfathered firearm cannot be transferred at all except to those who can get a non-grandfathered firearm (gov., manufacturers, etc.) - I am not sure:

The transfer clause is near the very end.

Note: not talking about politics here, pro or con, etc., just about what the law would be if the proposed legislation were enacted.
