Skip to comments.Iowa Lawmaker: Ban Semi-Automatic Weapons, Then 'Start Taking Them' From Gun Owners if Needed
Posted on 01/08/2013 9:43:45 AM PST by Nachum
A Democratic legislator in Iowa is startling citizens with his most recent proposal: ban the sale of semi-automatic weapons, and confiscate them from existing gun owners if need be.
Here is an excerpt from Iowas Daily Times Herald, which conducted the interview with State Rep. Dan Muhlbauer:
In an interview, a fiery Muhlbauer said it is time to act with radical changes on gun laws and other issues to protect schoolchildren from shooting sprees like the one last week in Newtown, Conn.
We cannot have big guns out here as far as the big guns that are out here, the semi-automatics and all of them, Muhlbauer said. We cant have those running around out here. Those are not hunting weapons.
He added, We should ban those in Iowa.
Muhlbauer, who did not list the specific weapons he wants outlawed in The Daily Times Herald interview, said he would like to see the ban implemented in a retroactive fashion.
Even if you have them, I think we need to start taking them, Muhlbauer said. We cant have those out there. Because if theyre out there theyre just going to get circulated around to the wrong people. Those guns should not be in the publics hands. There are just too many guns. [Emphasis added]

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
He's a state assemblyman, but he thinks he's a commissar.
What an oxygen thief.
A NOTHING Iowa “Legistator” from a MORE NOTHING “District”!
Uhhhh, semi-auto rifles have been the most common "hunting weapons" for about 100 years now.
Time to ship that Nazi back home.
Surely there is a “Henry Bowman” in rural Iowa with a hog farm that can accomodate this critter?
We first ban idiot legislators.
These Demrat simpletons can’t read.
Yesterday, my newly elected Rep. Rick Nolan, said he backs the 2nd Amendment, but no one needs an “assault rifle” to hunt ducks.
It’s pretty obvious that none of these supposed “2A backers” has ever READ THE 2nd AMENDMENT, let alone the Constitution they swore, under oath, to support and defend.
Chip Cravaack, we need you back!
“the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Selecting certain “arms” and banning the selling, ownership and use of them INFRINGES upon our rights.

Who is "we" Dan? You? Our gov't representatives? The people that work for us? Why don't you go ahead and give it a start
These politicians, union organizers, college professors. Leave your jobs, put on the Kevlar yourselves, grab a shotgun and start going door to door. Why should the police have to take the risks for your ideas? Get some trigger time yourselves, pussies. Talk is cheap when you are in a protected government office building with armed guards.
We are waitng for the show.
On one hand they think guns do so much damage that guns should be banned. On the other hand, they don’t think those same guns won’t do them damage if they try to “take” them.
The problem with “taking” assault weapons is that all the bullets come first.
That’s it. Building a border fence between IA and MO sounds better and better all the time.
As for the idiot’s comments, here’s my take. Those guns don’t run around out there. They must be carried everywhere they go by a human. It is not the fault of that inanimate gun if the human uses it for immoral or unlawful purposes. As for his ‘those are not hunting weapons’ remark, well, I guess it just depends upon what you’re hunting. An AR or AK may not be the prime choice for hunting squirrels, rabbits, pheasant, or gophers but if it’s all you got, you just have to shoot more of them to have some meat left to eat.
Democrat = ALWAYS on the offensive, ALWAYS!
There is NO depth that they will not sink to to try to take something away from their enemies.
This is not “shocking” at all. I’ve dealt with people like this my entire life.
I wish, wish, that I could find something that he holds dear and propose banning it and confiscating it. Then ridicule him publicly for caring for it.
He’s probably a pedophile.
Eye for an eye.
Gotta love the Mayor who said, when referring to proposed gun confiscation, “I don’t think that would go over well.” HAHA! Now THAT has got to be the understatement of the year!
Give it yer best shot, you spork-weasel.
Guarentee I'll see you coming.
Every time one of these asshats goes into th 'duck hunting' comment, I turn to them, cup my hand in a circle next to my eye so I can peer through it, smile ominously, and say "It ain't duck's I'm hunting."
As long as we are not worried about the Constitution any longer, I suggest that we ban free speech so that anyone holding office cannot discuss any issue related to guns, movies, or taxation. If they wish to do so, they can apply for a permit. If granted, the speaker will need to pay a tax for each word used, and then each of the journalists who wish to report it should be required to purchase a permit as well, after a background check for whether their use of the language has in the past been “incendiary.”
More people are killed every day in automobile crashes than with firearms. When will our automobiles be taken away from us?
Thats why we need Semi’s.
The trouble is that these clowns that propose confiscating guns never envision themselves as the first guy through the door when the time to "take" them comes.
The Constitution now being meaningless, I vote to allow our troops to be quartered in the homes of the Democrat representatives to save money on the budget, with each household having to pay to feed the troops adequately, and to provide for their daily needs.
I thing this individual should house some Marines.
We’re making a list.
We’re checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.....
This LITTLE POS had better look at what is on the Flag of the State of Iowa, it says “Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain.’ He had better look LONG and Hard.
‘More people are killed every day in automobile crashes than with firearms. When will our automobiles be taken away from us?’
That’s covered under the Smart Growth plan. It’s being sold as the answer to suburban sprawl. The long term plan is to get everyone living in North Korean style high rises and riding mass transit.
From another forum, far away from F.R., on Democrat gun control proposals. Sucks to be Feinstein if the KKK starts holding press conferences to talk about how awesome they think she is:
(censored by me)
We in the KKK have been working with Democrats for almost 100 years to disarm n***ers and we stand in strong solidarity with Senator Feinstein and the Democrat party in their new push to keep n***ers from having guns.
Just a few common sense laws will make it easier to take their guns, and also to put them in jail if they get uppity. New taxes might be the cure because n***ers won’t be able to afford any guns or ammo.
The gun registry is perfect because we can use it along with the Census and figure out what n***ers have guns so we can go get them.
I’ve already written to Senator Feinstein and told her how much we appreciate her work and to push harder.”
I hunt ducks all the time with my AR-15.........haven't hit one yet.
Am I doing something wrong?
The town council needs a visit from Earl Turner and his friends.
Wu’s pigs are always hungry...
1) The Second amendment isn't about hunting.
2) Muhlbauer, are you going to be the one who confiscates the weapons?
No? I didn't think so.
Times a coming, get ready, because people are going to die.
Say what you mean, Lord Muhlbauer.
The Forefathers knew that one day we might have to start hunting tyrannical politicians. That’s what my “hunting” guns and mean looking black rifles are for.
That Iowa taxpayer leach can go stuff himself.
“I wish, wish, that I could find something that he holds dear and propose banning it and confiscating it. Then ridicule him publicly for caring for it.”
Propose restricting the MSM coverage of mass shootings.

All these diparaging comments against these gun grabbing fascists are useless. His constituents need to start a RECALL movement against him IMMEDIATELY. He swore an oath to uphold the constitution which he now proposes to violate (multiple ammendments). He and any other elected officials who propose these laws need to be slapped upside the head by removing them from office.
All of these jackasses know why we have the 2nd amendment. They just pretend it is for hunting only.
You see, the progressives refuse to acknowledge the real meaning because they are the ones the framers were referring to that the guns were left in our hands to protect us from.
I wish people would quit arguing anything other than the real intent. You can see they are afraid to talk about the real intent of the 2nd amendment. SO MAKE THEM!
Come on down here to Texas and lets get this sh*t over with. We will see just how bad you want them.
Was my same thought I have never used a rifle to hunt ducks and last time I checked a semi auto weapon is not an assault rifle!
I have a Winchester lever action 22 that can pump 20 rounds out as fast as I can crank the lever. Whats the difference?
Maybe 3 seconds?
“I wish, wish, that I could find something that he holds dear and propose banning it and confiscating it.”
Had a discussion with a friend the other day. He’s a proud Porsche owner. After pounding into his brain the difference between automatic and semi-automatic weapons, which wasn’t too easy, I told him a story. I had a friend in Milwaukee who took the body off of an old VW Beetle, and installed a fiberglass replica of a Porsche body. I asked my lib Porsche-owning friend, “Is that car a Porsche?”: “Of course not!” was his indignant reply. I then asked him, “Should we ban all VWs that have replica Porsche bodies on them?”
