Posted on 12/20/2012 10:32:29 AM PST by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears
House Democrats on Wednesday pressured Republicans to hold a vote now on a bill that would ban high capacity gun clips like the one used in the deadly Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D- Calif., said the GOP leadership should put a bill on the floor by Friday that would limit the size of gun magazines to 10 rounds.
Republicans leaders have not publicly responded to Pelosi's demand.
Flanked by a crowd of Democratic lawmakers, Pelosi made the statement at a news conference announcing a special House Democratic task force aimed at examining gun violence. Pelosi said she has tapped Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., who is a gun owner and a hunter, to lead the panel.
Democrats are trying to seize momentum necessary to pass the most aggressive gun control measure since the 1994 legislation that banned a wide range of assault weapons.

"You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."
Just shows how important budget and taxes are to them.
The gun control ghouls strike before even the funerals are over...
Ban the sale of normal mags, or ban possession? If they are again demanding that a bill be passed before anyone reads it, almost anything could be in it.
Why the hell not...
Let’s get CWII started early.
Do it Now!
Do it NOW!
You can find out what’s in it later...
Democrats are a cancer eating away at our nation.
The House is the key. More gun control will either start or die there. It’s important that people contact Republican members and stop anything, even the magazine ban.
Federal Government should be banned from walking “AR” weapons to Mexican drug lords that have resulted in deaths of hundreds of innocents. Put that up for vote first.
Less than a week later? Seriously???
Welcome to Venezuela....
We arm our airline pilots, don't we?
Dems run on emotion , and the immediate
Repubs run on intellect ideas and thoughtful long term
This last election was decided by “sound bytes”
I’ve got my list....hope you have yours. Hogs need feeding, BADLY.
Go ahead and "target" yourselves, RINOs.
The Democrats didn’t have this all written and just handy in a drawer somewhere, ready to pull out on a moment’s notice when the inevitable disaster strikes, now did they?
The ratchet moves up one notch further, drawing down even tighter the chains and fetters that have been accumulating, going back to the days of Viet Nam and the Watergate crisis.
It may be this one, though this was filed last January, and is just coming to the floor now.
Bans sale or possession of new ones. Ten years in Club Fed if you can’t prove your Glock mag was manufactured before the cutoff date.
“The gun control ghouls strike before even the funerals are over...”
Well they cant exactly wait until people rational figure out that the reason for this massacre was a total absence of guns in the hands of the defenders rather than the unavoidable presents of guns in the hands of the offenders.
The democratic party is a party of exploiting the mob’s baser instincts including most prominently their emotions.
Conservatives can do the same only with logic (which frequently takes longer to kick in) by highlighting the disarmed teachers and printable along with the unavoidably of nuts getting their hands on weapons.
No gun control measure ever passed could prevent that anymore than Washington an prevent druggies from getting drugs.
You never know. We may soon learn that the Second Amendment can be re-worded through a simple Executive Order. Stroke of the pen, law of the land, you know. Who needs the House?
“...and checking it twice. Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice.”
Just watching Obama on Fox News. He is an absolute master of the smear. A shakedown artist at heart. So conceited.
You can shove your silly idea up your collective smelly Obamas.
While you’re at it, purchase a bushmaster and shove it up there also.
We’ve had it with you. Go ahead and try.
OK. As long as it only applies to firearms carried by federal agents.
Unfortunately, the women GOP lawmakers are more likely to let their “protective” instincts overrule common sense and go with the Demonicrats on this. I have one such legislator.
Any time a firearms-related thread is created on FreeRepublic, please be sure to add the "banglist" keyword to it so that interested FReepers don't miss it. Just a suggestion.
Let Freedom Ring,
I’m looking for the “LIKE” button for your post.
Let them. It’s a loser issue for them. Just keep your eye on the RINOs and be ready to call them out.
No one has the balls to personally tell that hag to go FK yourself.
I see in that bill that they want to limit magazines to 10 rounds. Do they realize that many of the dead and wounded at the Giffords shooting were done within the first 10 rounds.
If someone opens up using a firearm with a 10 round mag how soon will these same snakes begin to demand a six round magazine.
Yes. A list of Places to Go, People to Meet and Things to Do.
If you look at all the "gun free" zones elementary schools are the most vulnerable thanks to the Gun Free School Zone Act. That law prohibits even off duty law enforcement from bringing their gun into a school regardless of agency policy.
If Pubbies vote to support a bill to have an Assault Weapons Ban or magazine limit they will have slit their throat for future elections. Millions of INNOCENT gun owners will vote third party instead of for those lemmings.
My suspicion is that the Dems don’t really want a vote. They are pressing the issue to force the Republicans to act against it.
I think gun control is still a losing issue and may come back to bite liberals big time.
The pubs ought to offer a bill that any state wishing to preserve the Second Amendment is free and clear to leave the union immediately after the vote.
Nancy should show solidarity with the gun grabbers and order her security personnel to turn in all of their weapons.
Sure, gotta do it while the little caskets are still being shown on the television, with sobbing parents in the background, and the blood is still fresh on the ground.
The Dems will exploit the death of these innocents as much as they can...
...while in the same breath applauding and defending the millions of deaths of innocents killed in the womb, before they even have a chance to draw breath.
Their hypocrisy is disgusting and astounding.
F***ing Ghouls, that’s all they are.
Hope the Rs have enough balls to resist it.
1. What they are looking to ban are standard capacity magazines.
2. The article mentions “assault magazines”. I guess they’ve got a new term we can give in to and start using.
You don’t make laws based on pure emotion. It wouldn’t be bad to discuss parental responsibilities, background checks,
mental illness and its treatment, school security improvement, but the gun itself is only a political football. Guns don’t kill other humans...people do, with or without guns.
Sometimes no response says more than anything they could possibly state verbally...(Translation: we're not even going to dignify that with a response). Which I hope is the tactic they use for all Obama's gun control push, don't respond, just ignore, schedule no debate, schedule no votes, and go about business as usual.
What they are doing has nothing to do with logic.
Plus, imagine if they passed a law and all street crime and nutjob shootings disappeared. How then would they force their agenda on us?
Remember, they thought they’d stop crime by taking flash hiders off of target rifles. At least that’s what they said.
I stand right next to you, brother.
“Stick it up your smelly Obama” Quote of the day! bravo!
Since when? (Just kidding)
Pelosi trying to make the Republicans look as though Sandy Hook didn’t matter to them, as well if they succeed in getting the R’s to capitulate it’s a win-win for the Democrats. Just another dirty trick as it’s the Democrats that are jumping for joy at this “crisis”, this opportunity to force legislation that benefits their goals of disarming Americans, and eliminating the Second Amendment.
Those kids that died!? Oh THEM! Uh, Well...uh.... we’re doing this for the children.
This sort of obviousness by the Democrats is proof positive part of their mental void is in the disruption, and rerouting of their thought processes around that point in the brain where normally a conscience would have existed.
THEY have no conscience.
it started back in 08.. it’s just a cold war at the moment.
but I am afraid its starting to warm up.
he should but he won’t. he’ll start with clips larger than 30 rounds then fight with himself down to 7 rounds. Obama and the democrats will turn up their nose at the offer and demand 5 or less or even a out right ban on a fire arm that uses a clip.
Pelosi: Assault Magazines Have To Be Outlawed
10 rounds per magazine? That’s not a lot different than the standard magazine used by the m-16.
Just have more magazines in your pocket.
I have a Lady Smith revolver........with speed loaders I can shoot all day. They will prolly come after them next.
