Lautenberg Introduces Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act
lautenberg.senate.gov ^ | March 16, 2005 | Anonymous Lautenberg Lackey

Measure Tougher and More Comprehensive than 1994 Federal Ban on Assault Weapons that President Bush and Republicans Allowed to Expire Last Year

WASHINGTON, DC --Acting forcefully to protect citizens and law enforcers, United States Senator Frank R. Lautenberg introduced today a bill which would restore the federal ban on dangerous assault weapons.

"Keeping assault weapons off our streets is common sense," said Senator Lautenberg. "Our first responsibility to the American people is to keep them safe."

The "Assault Weapons Ban and Law enforcement Protection Act" would permanently reinstate and significantly strengthen the federal ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazine that expired on September 2004. The Lautenberg bill would improve and simplify the definition of assault weapons; would expand the scope of the ban to include conversion parts kits that can be purchased through the mail and used to build an assault weapon; regulate the transfer of grandfathered assault weapons; clarify definitions of assault weapon characteristics; and enhance tracing of assault weapons.

"It is time to act in the interest of the American people, not the gun lobby," said Senator Lautenberg. "Innocent lives, including law enforcement officials, are at risk and we need to pass this legislation now. Gun laws should be there to protect the innocent; not help criminals and terrorists"

The Governmental Accountability Office (GAO) produced a detailed report at the request of Senator Lautenberg that found that at least 47 suspected and known terrorists who are listed on the nation's terror watch lists were allowed to legally purchase firearms. With the expiration of the Assault Weapons Ban, these people could now upgrade from a hand gun or rifle, to an AK-47.

Democrat Senate agenda.

Well, let's first murder Schiavo, then we can protect horses and caribou and "law enforcement" agents by writing more gun control legislation.

After we prevent conservative judges from being appointed.

Lautenburg would have volunteered to be a Zonerkommando in a Nazi death camp just so he could keep "dangerous assault weapons" out of the hands of untrained people.

After all, he's the kind of guy who thinks only the guards really need them.

If this bastard (lautenburg) had his way we would have less rights than an Iragi. There you can have one AK-47 and one magazine per house. Damned liberal garbage.

The assault weapon's ban was not really a ban anyway. You could still legally buy "pre-ban" weapons, they were just more expensive. I got an M-4 from Bushmaster that was identical in every respect (except for the selector), to the M-4 I carried in Iraq. And that was long before this ban expired.

If anybody, anywhere up the "pole" in the GOP is reading this thread, they need to know, that short of our open border problem to the south, THIS issue (blatent attempts at reducing the Second Ammendment) will turn us against them.

...and yes...they DID (even the democrats) swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. For any one of them to suggest we make it any less effective is a violation of thier oath of office.

Personally, I'm waiting for the day when the constituency of a given representative takes him/her to court and sues for failure to uphold an oath of office. It "seems" to be a very clear case. It would be nasty for certain (at the least the first time), but would open the eyes of all those who were thinking about violating their oaths afterwards.

Think about it....the left uses the courts where they "should" go through the legislative bodies. We ought to push them through the courts for what we can. Violation of oath of office should right at the top of the list!

Why ?

Here's a link to the complete bill
S. 645

Note; this link is from the senate and has the lead in tripe spewing speech by the jackass 'senator'.

But also NOTE, in the last week there's been OTHER AWB bills introduced. Some in the senate (Di-Fi again) and also in the House. We are under full attack by the gun grabbers.

Go to THOMAS and search "assault weapons" and they'll all pop up. And this time they're leaving no stone unturned. Now they want to ban the M-1 Garand too.

...from ALL enemies, both foreign and DOMESTIC.

When will we get rid of left-wing, anti-gun, anti-freedom, anti-AMERICAN scumbags like Lautenburg, who is, in fact, nothing short of a DOMESTIC ENEMY of the people of the United States?

Maybe the courts will work, but I doubt it.

The 'ballot box' sure hasn't worked, given the fact that this piece-of-sh*t is from the Peoples Republic of New Jersey.

What's left to us, other than the 'cartridge box'?

Hope that never becomes necessary (when, and if, our government ever becomes the Tyrannical government that scum like Lautenburg would want, and that our Founders helped arm us against), but maybe one day it will.

Sen. Lousenberg, as he is commonly know in NJ, has done a great public service in introducing this bill. It will get more Dems - including that bubblehead Hillary - on record as being opposed to gun rights which means more Democratic defeats in the coming years.

Case in point....These weapons were bought about TWO years before the ban expired. They were purchased through federally licensed dealers as well. There are only three rifles total in these photos. We bought two Armalite A2/AR-15s, and the FN-FAL ("mostly" STG-58) sometime in 2000 or so. A friend of mine bought the flat topped Armalite just before the ban expired.

So much for the ban. The law passed by Bush Sr. in 1986 needs to be repealed though!





Here's one for all the "Haters of Evil Black Guns with High Capacity Magazines, and Pistol Grips". Can you identify this one? All of you who KNOW what this "thing" is, don't tell! :-)

Our elected law makers in Washington are totally ignorant of guns, what they can do and what they are for. They are also ignorant of the true meaning of the 2nd Amendment. It looks scary so let's keep it out of the hands of law abiding citizens.

The original SA in Springfield MA is no more, and has gone to seed. It's a park/historical site now. The name was bought by "Springfield Armory Inc." of Geneseo, Illinois. That's where SA INC's are made. Quality problems started in the late 90's, and are getting worse. Cast recievers, increasingly more cast parts, and poor quality control.

This turd is so transparent it is almost laughable, The only difference between the UN and NJ politicians is 60 miles (the distance between NJ and NY). Note to political types, you don't make people safe by disarming law abiding people. What you get is an unarmed victim, and a armed criminal

"Hey jackass, an AK-47 IS a rifle."



And in this country, a semiautomatic one. There are very few if any true AK-47s in civilian hands.

Stay tuned for the news outlets to show an Iraqi terrorist blasting away with a true AK-47 (machine gun) when they air this story. The idea is to blur the line between machine guns and what Lautenberg would ban with this bill.

In the US we have AK-47 STYLED rifles, NOT AK-47s, but your average soccer mom or MSM watcher would never know that. They think we have rifles on the streets identical to what they have in Iraq. Nope, one squeeze of the trigger, one shot fired. Just like countless hunting rifles in this country.
