Democrats Introduce Unconstitutional Legislation to Ban Firearms…

I don’t understand this crap.

First…They ARE NOT “assault” weapons!

Second…The Second Amendment acknowledges that a U.S. citizen has the right to own ALL TYPES of weapons, including assault weapons.

And lastly, when I hear that armed Democrats, or muslims, or illegal aliens…or racist black militants are running loose shooting Americans with firearms…

The last thing I’m inclined to do is give up my firearms.

What actually happens is we have a family meeting and carry extra magazines when we go out. (There’s more than that, but that’s all I can share.)

I never cared that much for the AR-15, but I guess it’s time to buy one

Maybe for Freeda.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and a number of her colleagues today introduced the Assault Weapons Ban of 2017, a bill to ban the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Joining Senator Feinstein on the bill are Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Tom Carper (D-Del.), Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Al Franken (D-Minn.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) and Bob Casey (D-Pa.).

Key provisions

  • Bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name. Owners may keep existing weapons.
  • Bans any assault weapon that accepts a detachable ammunition magazine and has one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock. Owners may keep existing weapons.
  • Bans magazines and other ammunition feeding devices that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which allow shooters to quickly fire many rounds without needing to reload. Owners may keep existing magazines.

Exemptions to bill

  • The bill exempts by name more than 2,200 guns for hunting, household defense or recreational purposes.
  • The bill includes a grandfather clause that exempts all weapons lawfully possessed at the date of enactment.

  1. Don’t let them take away your weapons!
    They know no shame. Any tragedy will be exploited in order to further their agenda.
    Give away your guns today and you all will be able to sleep peacefully…
    …until you wake up and find yourselves in a Gulag!
    If there is any REAL human right it’s the right of an adequate self defense.
    Let them take away that right and you‘ll be treated as the cattle they think you are!
