No, although states and school districts are free to make their own laws superceding the GFSZA, attacking the bill on a National stage would shift the debate in our favor. Their side is going for broke...we need an equal push back in the opposite direction.
I would also favor repealing the 1968 Gun Control Act, and whatever law took automatic weapons away from American citizens. Ultimate push back to the original intent of the Second Amendment.
They are making more noise than we are so need to go radical.
So far no incidents. But these guys are all highly trained.
Automatic weapons are a far different thing than ordinary firearms ~ nobody should even attempt firing one without serious training and practice on a range. One of their little problems that can actually knock people flat on their backs firing at the sky is ROTATION because of recoil. You have to learn to HOLD THE GUN DOWN ~ and that's not something everybody can do successfully. Remember those little 3 round bangers those women had at Waco? There was enough rotation to run those suckers right up the sides of the buildings to where they were firing on their own guys on assault ladders!
Gotta' be weight and strength standards for folks with automatic weapons ~ NO SMALL PEOPLE ALLOWED.
It's going to be a while yet before the recoil problem is properly addressed in a light autofire weapon. Maybe flechettes are the answer ~ might not be up to snuff for combat use, but around the 'hood, you could certainly defend your home with cornermounted Quad F's eh!
Dude's breaking in the window ~ take him out with a cloud of needles. They might break in, but they don't break out!
God Bless Ted Cruz for being the man in the arena.
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”
