If the RINO Republicans let this come back I will campaign against every one of them for the rest of my life. I will sacrifice all my excess income to defeating them forever. I will campaign for any Conservative that fights this return of the AWB.

So...does a Glock semi-automatic pistol classify as an “assault weapon”?

These people just never stop. It is ALL politics and regulations ALL the time.

Obama’s a former member of the Joyce Foundation. That’s all that needs to be said.

Appearing on television recently, former Hillary Clinton campaign adviser and current public relations executive Mark Penn suggested that President Obama needs a moment “similar” to the tragic terrorist attack on the Oklahoma City federal building, in order to “reconnect” with voters.

He didn’t even seem to flinch in making the comment.

Why? No such weapon was used in the Tucson Assault.

Oooh ... never mind, he's a LIB-Turd. It's a gut reaction based on ignorance and hatred of the and Amendment.

Remember the last “ASSAULT weapons ban” included a bunch of stuff that wasn’t ASSAULT weapons related,

like pistol magazines over 10rd capacity.

One liberal congresswoman gets shot by a KNOWN liberal nut constituent (for not being liberal enough), and because ONE PERSON gets shot the assault weapons ban comes back?

Right. Just shut it down republicans. Shut it the hell down now. If they have another false flag op planned or another nut some liberal sheriff ignores, hoping a tragedy will occur that they can then exploit, go for it.

How about a “BAN KNOWN MENTALLY UNSTABLE AND/OR INSANE LIBERALS FROM GUNS” law? That’s what happened here.

15 were shot, six died, but you're right... only the Congress-critter counts. After all, Hasan shot 30, of whom 12 died, but they were just soldiers, and we shouldn't worry about the exceptional Islamic radical.

Apparently, Loughner was using an extended magazine, which allowed him to fire around 30-33 rounds before having to reload.

According to Libs, pretty much everything is an assault weapon.

They're talking about the magazine-size restriction, because their logic is that since nobody but the cops should be allowed to carry guns in public, the only way to deal with a mass murderer is to wait until he runs out of ammo and then try to tackle him. Thus, the sooner he runs out of ammo, the better.

Basically, they're proposing a magazine-capacity limit as a solution to a problem (gun-free zones and anti-gun hysteria) that they themselves created.

The real issue is "shrooms. The kid was a doper using mushrooms commonly growing in the region.

Congress can simply make it unlawful to consume mushrooms.

It all makes sense.

The Democrats are carefully calibrating their limits on magazine capacity to make sure that ol’Jared there would have had enough bullets to kill the Republican judge.

I say one because the guy only had one target. He wanted to get his liberal congresswoman who pissed him off by not being liberal enough for him. He got others, yes. But it’s all about the liberal congresswoman.

assault weapon: n (1) any gun that is capable of holding more than 10 rounds, has a vague resemblance to any weapon ever used by any military or police force, or just plain looks scary.
(2) any firearm with any number of cosmetic modifications that have absolutely no effect on the rate of fire or lethality of the weapon, but make it appear more fearsome.

Interestingly enough, the most deadly assault weapon on the planet, the socialist, should be banned.

Assault socialists have murdered and killed more innocent, defenseless, civilians and other humans that any other weapon on the planet, ever.

Additionally, assault socialists will actively and cognitively select a human target and go off by themselves, rendering them deadly when NOT in competent human hands.

I propose a registration of all assault socialists, better yet, all socialists, because of the difficulty of distinguishing between assault socialists and regular socialists. Of course, keeping socialists under lock and key would be absolutely necessary, so as to prevent children accidental access to them. The enticement to bad behavior is just too great.

Finally, long term, we must have the will to ban socialists once and for all, their power of seduction to evil is just too dangerous.

IIRC those were both specifically listed on the last attempted AWB, along with the M1 carbine.

1) the M-14 is a full auto weapon, placed in service in the mid-1950's to replace the M1. The civilian version is called the M1A, which is a semi-automatic (i.e. self-loading, one shot per trigger pull) rifle. Both come standard with a 20-round box magazine, though you can obtain others (5, 10, 15, 25 and 30 that I've seen, not all of which are reliable - esp. those made in Red China).

2) I suspect that he'd dislike either one even more if the rounds are loaded with AP bullets (still plenty out there, folks).

Ruger had a "Presidential Election Special" on Mini-14 magazines back when Obama was elected. They were actually reasonably priced!

IIRC those were both specifically listed on the last attempted AWB, along with the M1 carbine.

IIRC, the Garand was either not on the list, or specifically exempted. Not sure about the M1A - I think that it was allowed, but not new mags of more than 10-round capacity. Of course, Springfield had made millions of the 20-rounders before the ban took effect, so you got 2 with the rifle (if new in box), and you could buy more (for the highly absurd price of about $50 a pop). I don't think that it will matter much anyhow, as such a proposed ban should not even come up for a vote in the House...and it had better %$%&*(@^ NOT come up for a vote - YOU HEAR THAT, BOEHNER!!!

It get better than that.

This is the third time prior to an attempted assassination that the dems have trotted out the canard that hate speech and hate radio is driving the right wing extremist to violence.

The first two assassination attempts were carried out by al Quada. One in 1995, the second in 2009.

Al Quada threatened Obamas life shortly before the dems began orchestrating the hate speech hate radio leading to violence for this attempt.

If it happens once you can write it off to coincidence.

If it happens twice, it's suspect.

If it happens three times you can pretty much guarantee it's planned.

Furthermore, two of the assicanition attempts have been followed by fertilizer bombs.

First was OKC in1995. The second was the fertilizer bomb in NYC. The left tried to blame on the right wing extremist/TEA Party, and would have succeded in blaming the TEA Party had the bomb gone off.

I also find it hard to believe the coordinated attack on Sarah Palin was spontaneous. If it was spontaneous, the MSM wouldn't have had the exact same talking points about the “RIFLE SIGHTS” used by Palin and ignore the “TARGETS” used by the dems.
