Better link I hope
Look for HR 45
If they don’t disarm the American public soon, things could get hot. So... here it is...
What’s the status of that serializing of bullets and brass?
If this passes, I’ll never build another gun for the Government EVER.
Not the country I grew up in.
Yeah, to be sure, some things are better, but others, FAR worse.
I’ve been going bill by bill since congress got back in session watching for these. Guess my eyes start to bleed too soon and I missed this one.
I wasn’t too aware. Though I was born in 1985.
But growing up in NYC didn’t help at all.
Dunno, for all I know its being drafted now. A couple of well placed “donations” and the Seattle patent holders will get this pushed down our throats.
I’m very selective about whom I will and will not deal with. I’ll build guns for our military because I don’t want our guys and gals getting killed. I won’t build guns for most of the civilian agencies due to un-Constitutional practices and civil rights violations. For instance, until Lon Horiuchi stands trial for the murder of Vicki Weaver and his questionable role in Waco, I won’t sell guns to the FBI. Even if he did stand trial, depending on how the agency conducts itself, I doubt I would deal with them.
Check out our policies page on our website listed in my tagline.
"..Rush's district is located principally on the South Side of Chicago. It is a minority-majority district and has a higher percentage of African Americans (65%) than any other congressional district in the nation. He is the only person ever to defeat President-elect Barack Obama in an election for any office.
Rush is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, as well as a former member and founder of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party..."
So what are they going to do? Go to every house to see if anyone has un-serialize ammo? Try that up in some of the hills around here and see what will happen ...
I guess they interpretted their mandate to mean that Americans want more gun control. Here I thought they wanted cheaper gas and a pay raise. Silly me.
Too bad I never got to know that.
Looks good, too unfortunate the rest of the firearms manufacturers don’t have your backbone.
Of course, I can only buy one gun a month, but I am SO GRATEFUL my WONDERFUL GOVERNMENT ALLOWS ME to exercise my Second Amendment Rights (Privileges).
It's so comforting to know that THE GOVERNMENT knows what's good for me. In fact, I have a California Assault Weapons Permit as well, but that only cost me 20 bucks.
The Lord Obama will provide...
