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?

I find it interesting that a very similar law has also been introduced in Washington State. I moved to the NW in part to avoid Cali gun bans. Wyoming next? At some point the gun-banners will have succeeded in concentrating serious military gun owners in a few free states. I'm not sure that is exactly what they are trying to accomplish. They may find there are some Unintended Consequences that attend to that.

The left's indifference to the US Constitution makes it easy for them to try to remake the world as they want it.
The lefties here in Oregon are smarting over two laws the People (who they claim to love) have passed. (For those of you not in Oregon, they were the Measures to Prohibit state recognition of Pervert 'marriage', and the voters slapped down the taking of property via 'zoning and growth' laws.
But like a infected boil, they'll be baaaccck!
