This politician is following the standard left wing program. First ban smoking, then start on gun control laws, then "hate speech"...... It's a well known scenario.

This bill also interferes, profoundly, with the First Ammendment. This may be a good secondary tactic to attack it on. By outlawing, with severe penalties, the advertising of so-called assault weapons they have gone beyond any other bill or area. Booze is illegal for some ages to consume, but ads run freely. Even things like marijuana pipes are advertised in "High Times", available at the local Barnes and Nobel. Now with this law we have this: Creates crime of unlawful advertising of sale of assault weapon or large capacity magazine. Punishes by maximum imprisonment of one year, $6,250 fine, or both. Amazing! Are they going to collect copies of Shotgun News at the border and burn them? Will they try to arrest the editors of Guns & Ammo magazine?
