Minnesota Democrats pushing gun confiscation bill similar to Missouri's
Examiner ^ | 2.15.2013 | Joe Newby

Democrats in Minnesota are pushing a gun confiscation proposal that looks eerily similar to one recently proposed by Democrats in Missouri, Jim Hoft reported at the Gateway Pundit on Thursday.

The measure uses language that is almost identical to the Missouri proposal, including a requirement that law-abiding gun owners relinquish their so-called "assault" weapons before Sept.1, 2013.

According to the bill, anyone who, on February 1, 2013, legally owns or is in possession of an assault weapon has until September 1, 2013, to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution under Minnesota Statutes, section 624.7133:

1. remove the weapon from the state; 2. surrender the weapon to a law enforcement agency for destruction; 3. render the weapon permanently inoperable; or 4. if eligible, register the weapon as provided in Minnesota Statutes, section 624.7133, subdivision 5. The rule would also apply to anyone who receives the weapon as an inheritance.

Anyone who owns a gun classified as an "assault weapon" prior to the Feb. 1, 2013 cutoff may keep the weapon provided that the owner registers it, submits to a background check, keeps the weapon locked up and submits to an inspection by authorities. Owners of such weapons would be required to renew the registration annually.

Bob Owens wrote at PJ Media that Democrats walked out of a hearing when two firearms experts appeared to explain that the proposal "would outlaw only a gun’s cosmetic features while not affecting the functionality

Typical communist agenda donks.

Don't want to hear the facts, just parrot the narrative.

It’s only the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, right?



I would whistle a happy tune as I welded their jail cell lock shut…

You and your fellow travelers out number "them". Besides, you don't have to wait for "them" to come knocking at you door either after they "hit" the first house and word spreads.

Let that fact be known early, but peacefully. You have your right to exist WITH your possessions, on your own property, no matter what they think.
You are not the criminal here.

I’m going to become an “outlaw” after working as a LEO and thousands of investigations for the Feds after many many years. I can’t see them confiscating guns from homes; it goes all against common sense and practicality. Hoping that LE agencies all acrossthe nation and tell him to stick it here Soros and FMD have been...: )

Democrats want to take away our individual right to own guns or anything really. They want to take away our freedom of choice, our freedom. it’s time to hold these evil cretins called democrats accountable

Henry is sleeping in his gun room, like Olgar the Dane under his castle. When he is needed, he will wake.

You mean like Operation Fast & Furious or the Affordable Care Act?
