Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation.

In a related story, voters should suspend some politicians.

I have never seen an assault weapon, do they look anything like defense weapons?

Assault weapons are not usually sold to the general public and this little fascist pig knows that.

Schumer will do anything for a photo op. His chief staff aid was Tony Weiner. I'd guess he learned about emailing from Chucky.

Congress critters should suspend their salaries and benefits until a balanced budget is reached.

No Senator it is not because of the shooting at Newtown it is because of what this President in our White House is planning to do to the 2A!

semi auto sales have been suspended in some stores, as they have run out of stock.

Schumer says Congress is debating the issue, and if measures get passed that limit these type of weapons, it won't help if more of them have recently been sold.

It won't help what? Do they plan on confiscating them or what?

And maybe newspapers, magazines, blogs, etc should suspend writing anything bad about the government?

Which other items from the Bill of Rights does he think free people should give up?

Here's one in the Democrat's eyes.

People have been busted in New Jersey for having .22LR lever action rifles with tubular magazines that would hold more than ten .22 short rounds, violating their 10 round magazine limit.

Most semi-sane states that have magazine limits exempt rimfires with tubular magazines.

However, the firearm in your picture is a semi-auto, so it is by FrankenSTEIN and UpChuck's standards an assault weapon.

Eaten up with our own sense of self-importance, are we, Senator?????. From the STATE of....NY.

Why do you think Walmart was ‘convinced’ to rething their refusal of a tete-a-tete in DC last week?

Why do you think Bank of America pulled their financing from a succussful gun manufaturer for a new facility , even tho’ the company had a spotless credit record?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/04/27/gun-manufacturer-says-bank-american-doesnt-want-his-business/

The despots in DC know their window of rule may be limitied and they are going for broke - and to hell with the rule of law.

We are quickly descending into a WROL society.

Any retailer that complies with this will never receive another dime of my money. I don’t care if I have to drive a hundred miles; I’ll buy in bulk. I don’t care if I have to buy everything online or pay more close to home, I will do so.

I’m not usually one for boycotts, but anyone who allows this weasel to intimidate them is part of the problem.

I have not idea what an "assault weapon" is, and I own many semi auto rifles.

But.... There is a rifle that shoots table salt... the A Salt Gun A Salt Gun (link)

That makes it "A Salt Weapon".... so that is close.

I have a Dick’s duffel bag I won as a door prize. Because they decided to screw over the law-abiding post-Newtown, I won’t even use the bag again in public, much less buy stuff at their store.

I doubt anyone on FR thinks that’s too extreme, but just in case you do, ask yourself how you’d react if some retailer refused to sell goods to churches because of Westboro Baptist.

"Schumer: Retailers Should Suspend Some Gun Sales"

Hey, Schmuckie, your big fat mouth is YOUR living.

Why don't you put THAT "on suspension" for a while...at no pay.

("on suspension"....i.e., like forever).

I've heard that some of those things can hold 17 rounds.

It's good that duck huntin' guns come mostly in size 12 while that destructive device with it's short barrel and all in your pic comes in size 22. I'd guess that subsonic rounds might constitute use of a virtual silencer.
