On First Day, Democrats Propose Eight Anti-Gun Bills
Breitbart ^ | 1/4/13 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 01/04/2013 4:04:04 PM PST by Nachum

With the left looking for its next big cause, Congressional Democrats have latched onto the Sandy Hook massacre as an opportunity to push gun control. Yesterday alone, eight new bills were introduced relating to gun control. Two conservative bills were introduced relating to ending “gun free zones” under federal law.

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) led the way with four bills introduced. Her husband was shot to death in 1993 and her son was severely injured when Colin Ferguson, a mentally unstable black militant (he spent time in his apartment chanting, “all the black people killing all the white people”), shot up a Long Island commuter train.

She has been a longtime gun control advocate. In 1997, she tried to push a federal law that would have mandated trigger locks on all firearms. She introduced legislation that would have forced gun companies to produce firearms that were “child-resistant.” In 2007, she tried an “assault weapons” ban that would have targeted some 65 types of firearms.

The measures McCarthy introduced include:

Significant restrictions on gun show transactions, which would in effect end gun shows; No online purchases of ammunition, and licensing of ammunition dealers, as well as reporting to the federal government all bulk ammunition purchases; Prohibition on the transfer, sale, or possession of ammunition clips beyond a certain size.

Hold them all up in committee. They’re unconstitutional and frankly, not serious. Period. End of story.

Just eight?
Did they trip over one another or run out of time?

I guess this would also make Jamie Foxx and his buddy Tarantino unstable. Hmmmm.

Now ya see, here's where Carolyn and I would part ways. If my husband had been shot to death, I'd have for SURE been jumping through hoops trying to make it easier for the good people to own guns.

I myself would learn how to shoot and I'd SURE teach my kids how.

She's too touchy feely. And just dumb. Is she related to the Mizzus Brady?

The next 2 yrs (at Least) are going to be very interesting.
We started by the R controlled House having to accept a ‘brokered bipartisan’ bill dreamt up by jobama, the Senate, requiring the pResident to shorten his vacation.

What with us (R’s) losing ground in the House and Senate, Bo with a comfortable win, they are going to come at us from all directions and try to bury us.

Never again will a party allow their control of the House and Senate (Clinton 92-94 and BO 04-06) go without passing everything in sight.

At least the D’s have the gonads to use stall tactics while the R’s appear to roll over and play dead, saying ‘Our turn is coming’ or ‘we can’t do that, they will use it against us in _____ years. All the D’s do is vote against something they don’t like, then turn around and get it reinstated prior an election that may not go their way.

Of course with the apathy the voting public has (and I am sorry, I am starting to show signs of apathy and say F’em etc) no telling what will be jammed down our throats and up our hind parts.

No. Just put up more gun free zone signs. Simple. Problem solved. Who in their right minds would defy a sign like that?

She simply went into deep shock ~ and has never come out of it. All of her proposals would tend to disarm the honest and lawabiding people and aid the criminals and the looney bin crowd.

What she is up to is immoral.

They never let a crisis go to waste for their agenda. The little children can't even be remembered in peace. They can't even be respectful and civil to the living families who are terribly grief stricken. I feel such contempt for the democratic party. The democrats are following moves of a dictatorial government. They may cause a problem; they are certainly causing unrest. The democrats are destroying the nation. This is mostly on them. One cannot deny it and it's happening since the other side refuses to stand up to them. They deserve blame. I look for things to get out of hand-look how the media is publishing names and addresses of gun owners and reports that prisoners are threatening cops. ACLU, where are you, now.

Dems are serious. They know gun control laws don’t work - they’ve seen Chicago and Washington DC. Dems are doing this because they hate traditional Americans.

Gun control is a dog whistle... it allows them to express their hatred without having to take responsibility for it.

disarming law-abiding people does nothing to stop murderous criminals.

period.

show me how it does. where’s the mountain of evidence? all i see are people acting purely on hysterical emotions with nothing logical to back up justifying disarming law-abiding people.

I wonder how fast the Weeper of the House will cave on this.....After all, the Weeper doesn’t want the New York Slimes to get all mad at him and stuff.

Mark Levin is right. We live in a post-Constitutional society, thanks to the Fascist Left and their RINO collaborators. (If it weren’t for the handful Conservatives like Louie Gohmert, Mike Lee, and a few others still left in CONgress, we’d all be riding bicycles everywhere and reading Little Red Books.)

Make no mistake about it, FRiend, We the People are in serious trouble.

Everyone should just email/write/call their reps and senators and deliver this simple, one sentence: "I will not comply with any further restrictions of the rights guaranteed by the second amendment of the constitution." Might add a second sentence like "Any force used against me for exercising my second amendments rights will be met with force."

It's time to get mean and threatening about this crap. These bastards are serious.

Impeach the kenyan or secession.

“When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

Pull up your big boy pants FRiend, after farting in their general direction ...
The way I see it, if it reaches the point where freepers are soiling their pants, well, I’ll be dead first. No worries.
