Gun Owners Mad As Hell And Will Not Take It!

☆astac☆~PWCM 2013/01/01 19:20:01

Allow me to be as clear as I possibly can about this because the disconnect between the people of America and their government has become so complete, the distance between the citizen and the government has become so broad, that Washington is hearing only a faint whisper (If they hear anything at all!) coming from those of us outside the beltway.

So let me say this clearly, loudly, and in a declarative manner: Attention Senators and US Representatives: If you vote for the new Assault Weapons Ban your political career in the US Congress is OVER. That is O V E R! Complete, finished, ended, kaput!

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.

A pdf of the bill summary is available here:

What we have here is a full-out, frontal assault on gun owners of America—not to mention a complete infringement of the rights of gun owners as spelled out, clearly, in the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. It is as if the 2nd Amendment does not exist.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” ... 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution

I keep wondering what part of “shall not be infringed” do they not understand??? The definition of “infringe” is:“to go against.” That, then, would mean, it seems to me, the entire proposed 2013 Assault Weapons Ban is unconstitutional from the git-go! It is clearly an “infringement” on the rights of US citizens as spelled out in the 2nd Amendment.

As we learn, by dribs and drabs, what’s in Feinstein’s bill it becomes even more disturbing.

    She is going to get you by the nuts and twist until you beg for mercy. Just look at the face of the avatar by your name - an angry old man with the look of borderline dementia. This is not one to "volunteer" to be with the children in the school rooms, or to pack a gun into a shopping center or bar. You are her target, one that could flip any minute and be the next mass murderer.

    Having no fear of you crazies and your lust for shooting up beer cans, watermelons, and bottles with bursts of gunfire from your WMDs. I do fear that when you tire of the cans you will turn these weapons on a theater, shopping center or school room. As for your friend, Defender, he is one loony of measurable proportions, lost in a world of his own and fighting a war with Palestinians from his rusting trailer down there in Dixie.

    Thought this might be of interest to everyone - it comes out of the Pravda Newspaper:
    While President Putin pushes through reforms, the local authorities, especially in our vast hinterland, do not feel they need to act like they work for the people. They do as they please, a tyrannical class who knows they have absolutely nothing to fear from a relatively unarmed population. This in turn breeds not respect but absolute contempt and often enough, criminal abuse.
    For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the US 2nd Amendment is a rare light in an ever darkening room. Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike…
    The excuse that people will start shooting each other is also plain and silly. So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain how we can trust them or the police, who themselves grew up and came from the same culture?

    No it is about power and a total power over the people…Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are NOT marching in lock step of their ideology.
    The surprising article concludes with one last warning to Americans: “…do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect.”

    This Frankenstein bill must be defeated in the house and senate. It should be filibustered.
    Any republican who votes for it must be defeated in the next primary. Any democrat who votes against it should be looked at favorably if the republican opponent is weak candidate or has voted for the gun ban.

    so please tell me where in this proposed legislation which you know will never become law
    does anyone actually say that your guns are going to be taken away.
    truth is no where. youyr problem is that you have adopted a 100% take it or leave it attitude.
    bad idea because this prevents you from being realistic. time to stop being paranoid and start being responseble. the 2nd amendment does give you the right to carry arms,
    not many disagree with that, but when you given that type of freedom you have to practice
    that kind of awesome responseibility.

    your retort makes no sense. there is no place in the supposed legislation that says that peoples guns will be taken away. this is paranoia coming out, that attitude has to be replaced by an attitude that says that there are areas of compromise that would or could cut down on the death toll and yet poeple would still have the right to carry and own guns.
    reasonable is what it is called. by the way you must know that it will never become law anyway.

    If you read this legislation carefully, you will see the intent it to take away everyone's guns. Not immediately, but it will eventually happen if this were to pass as written. Read this sentence carefully "Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of". The key word in this sentence is transfer. Since you will be required to register your gun in your name, when you pass away, the gun will not be allowed to be handed down (transfered) to the person of your choosing. Eventually, loosing the ability to transfer a weapon will lead to the loss of the weapon.

    no there is no intent unles you see this thing from an all or nothing viewpoint which is what
    is killing the whole issue.

    Sounds like its going to be a time to purge our government of Traitors & Communists soon.

Are you content with your way of life my American brothers? Well that's all going to change if your going to save America, & our old way of life. Do you have the heart , stomach. balls, to indulge as a patriot in saving this beautiful country that our people fought & died for & gave up there jobs, wealth, & families to keep America free? Or are you just going to sit back & let real American patriots do the work for you while you Enjoy your contentment? Be a real American and protect our country!

    The news media along with Obama want to blame the recent shootings on Guns. The real cause is the lack of mental health treatment in this country. Both the federal and state governments refuse to spend the money necessary to get these people off the streets and the treatment they need. Also, the ACLU is also to blame by claiming that these people have rights, they don't really have. Solve the mental health problems, in this country, and you will, for the most part, solve the gun problem.
