It says only if it was previously owned by the DoD. But here is the thing, IIRC the DoD owns nothing, the GSA is the govt agency that actualy owns everything.

I hope you will NOT support the authorization bill for the Department of Defense (S. 1438), as long as Section 1062 of the bill remains in its current form. This section would allow the Department of Defense to confiscate militaria that is lawfully owned by private citizens and could require the destruction of guns in honest citizens' hands -- guns such as the M1 Carbine, 1903 Springfield, Colt SAA, and more. Please make sure this gun grab is fixed before you vote on it. Guns in private hands are not a threat to the security of this nation. At a time when we are declaring a war on terrorism, we should not also wage war against veterans and gun owners who live peacefully within our borders. The government should be working with its citizens, not against them, to meet this terrorist threat.I would note that the only plane which did not reach its intended target on September 11 was United Airlines' Flight 93, where private citizens (not the government) intervened. Please do not vote against the veterans and gun owners of this country. Please do not support S. 1438 with Section 1062 in its current form. Thank you.

Reading this over, it seems like a back door way to get at anything .50BMG, including the few semi-auto M2s out there. .50 is specifically identified in its own paragraph.
