Skip to comments.Minnesota: Ground Zero for Democrats’ Gun Confiscation Efforts?
Posted on 02/03/2013 6:25:10 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Barack Obama is coming to Minneapolis tomorrow to talk guns, his first such foray since he called for increased gun control after the Sandy Hook massacre. Timed, presumably, to coincide with his appearance, Democrats in Minnesotas legislature have introduced several draconian gun control measures. I wrote here about one of these statutes, which would ban, and provide for confiscation of, all average-sized magazines.
Liberals often ridicule gun owners fears that what the left really wants is to confiscate firearms, but in Minnesota the Democrats make no pretense: they are pushing confiscation legislation, unapologetically. H.F. 241 relates to assault weapons. It defines assault weapons in more or less the usual way; I havent compared it line by line to Dianne Feinsteins federal legislation, but the definition is similar if not identical. Assault weapons include all semiautomatic rifles that have a pistol grip or a hole in the stock through which you can put your thumb; any protruding grip that can be held by the nontrigger hand; a folding or telescopic stock; or a barrel shroud. So, what is it about a hole in the stock, a protruding grip, a folding stock and so on that explains why such weapons should be singled out for banning by the state? Nothing. These features have nothing to do with lethality and bear no rational relation to any legitimate governmental purpose...

Better CW-II to start there.
Lots of liberals.
Democrats have a supermajority in Minnesota if I recall. Time to leave.
Never thought about liberal socialist Minnesota being the strike zone for the first assault on taking back our lawfully constituted government, but, hey, so be it!
Eight Deuce on the loose! Soon, very soon, we will see which bed wettin liberal will be the first to die for the cause!
Many deer hunters, too...
They have a super majority in California too. And they’ve been eerily quiet.
I suspect what they have in the works here is going to make New York look like Switzerland.
Yep, might be time to take a drive to NV and rent a Storage Locker.
I think I’ll open a Facility at State Line and give a new meaning to the TV Show Storage Wars.
Ah, life in the new Soviet Union of California, isn’t it grand?
My observations are that storage facilities have video survellience and time logs, and require serious ID for an account.
“The First Amendment is there you see,
We can say when and what we please.
And the Second one is there,
To keep us all free.
Some want to take our rights away,
But it wont happen on this day.
They will continue to try in another way,
Freedom will be a gun shot away.
They wish to take our guns from us,
And they are trying to make a fuss.
This old vet says no they cant,
I took an oath and went to Nam.
Many have died to keep us free,
I will too, if need be.
In seventy one I passed the test,
And served with Americas best.
Fingerprinted and photo,
For owning a gun.
I dont think so
You communist son.
MOLON LABE is the battle cry,
Gun from my hand you will have to pry.
The oath I took on another day,
Is still in force and you will pay!
A brave man I will never be,
Until you take my rights from me.
Liberal socialists I despise,
Its hard to wait for their demise !!!”

Or move to Texas...
I’ll just dress in Black, put on some fake glasses and wear a big hat that says YUUUP on it.
Dave Hester can take the fall.
I own four rifles they want to ban.
I will not be giving them up.
No. They pass this here and it’s time to stand and fight.
The Courts get one shot to get this right... Then it’s our turn.
I left Minnesota a year and a half ago, returning to Texas. The state got to be too loony left, to the point of destroying business. Add to that the control freak nature of the Minneapolis libtards.
It is time for all good productive people to leave that state, and let it collapse.
I’m thinking Wyoming. Texas is a tad too warm and humid for my taste, though I did send Ted Cruz a couple of bucks before the Election.
My Texas friends know him personally and tell me he is the real deal.
In California, he is causing some Senator Envy. Here we have two real Gun Grabbing Commie Witches, Barbara (dumb as a box of Barbara Boxers) Boxer and Diane Frankenfeinstein.
“Better CW-II to start there.”
There is nothing Civil about this. This is about Revolution...Revolutionary War II...for the same reasons as the first...and for the reasons we have Amendment 2 to the Constitution.
AB 48, introduced by F rated Assemblyman Nancy Skinner, would require reporting of ammunition sales, licensing of ammunition dealers and other controls of ammunition, similar to firearms. This bill would also expand the definition of large capacity magazine to include any readily restorable or disassembled magazine that appears to hold more than ten rounds, and would require notification to local law enforcement if an individual buys anything more than a small amount of ammunition in a five-day period.
AB 169, introduced by F rated state Assemblyman Roger Dickinson, would prohibit members of the general public from transferring any handgun that is not on, or drops off of, the states roster of approved handgun, to anyone other than a family member or spouse.
AB 174, introduced by anti-gun Assemblyman Rob Bonita, would remove the grandfather clause on existing firearms that are currently illegal to purchase, but are legal to possess if they were owned prior to making the firearm illegal.
AB 187, also introduced by Assemblyman Bonita, would impose an additional tax on the sale of ammunition., These anti-gun bills are expected to be introduced soon:
SB 53, introduced by "F" rated state Senator Kevin de León, would require ammunition purchasers to obtain a permit and pay an annual fee (tax). This bill will also ban online and mail order sales of all ammunition, and require registration and thumbprinting for all ammunition purchases.
SB 47 , introduced by "F" rated state Senator Leland Yee, would expand the prohibitions on the sale and possession of assault weapons to include hundred of firearms currently lawful for sale in California.
SB 108 , also introduced by state Senator Yee, would require a firearm to be placed in a locked container or otherwise be disassembled each time the owner leaves his or her property.
AJR 5, introduced by "F" rated state Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, would urge the President and Congress to support and pass Senator Feinsteins proposed legislation prohibiting the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of assault weapons, and large-capacity magazines.
HR 1, introduced by "F" rated state Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, would be a standing rule of the Assembly, which would state, a person, except a peace officer acting within the scope of his or her employment, may not carry or possess a firearm on the floor of the Assembly during any session of the Assembly or in a committee hearing room during any meeting of a committee or subcommittee.
No one hates heat and humidity more than I do, yet the Dallas area does a lot to mitigate it. Many parking lots have artificial shade, almost every building is air-conditioned, festivals and fairs are equipped with misters and/or portable a/c and lots of shade.
