Democrat’s Proposal Will Force Gun Owners to Store Assault Weapons At Government Approved Storage Depots

Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, January 19, 2013, 3:40 PM

 
 


Massachusetts State Rep. David P. Linsky and Barack Obama

Massachusetts State Representative David Linsky has filed a new bill that would force gun owners to undergo mental health background checks, pay an additional 25% tax on all forms of ammunition, and require firearms categorized as “assault weapons” to be stored outside of their homes at government approved sites.
Natick Patch reported, via Black Listed News:

“This bill is a comprehensive effort to reduce all types of gun violence – murders, intentional shootings, accidental shootings and suicides. There is not one solution to reducing gun violence – we can’t eliminate it – but there are a lot of common-sense steps that we can take to significantly reduce the everyday tragedy of gun violence and deaths,” said Linsky…

…“I have spoken with hundreds of people over the past few weeks in developing this legislation – victims, police officers, criminologists, physicians, and yes – gun owners and sportsmen,” stated Linsky. “There are a lot of good ideas out there. We should all have one goal – reducing gun violence and trying to keep more tragedies from happening.”

Provisions in the bill include:

That way if someone breaks in your house, all you have to do is run down to the local gun storage facility to get your guns.
It makes perfect sense.

That’s funny... since gunpowder used to be so volitile and dangerous, citizens would store theirs together in centralized depots. Noteworthy depots, like in Lexington and Concord. Then, some despot thought he’d seize them...

The Bolsheviks are now trying to outdo each other.

In case people don’t understand, an “assault weapon” is every gun out there to these communists.

I love the whole mental health angle.

The attitude on the left is that you have to be mentally ill to own a gun so I am not sure I agree with the whole mental illness test thing.

The Soviets used the same concept against dissidents in the old USSR. The attitude was that person had to be insane to disapprove of the government and dissent, so they stuck dissidents into mental institutions in the Gulags.

Sounds like college where we had to store our guns at the firing range on campus. Seems that after hunting season my freshman year they never quite got around to making it back down there.

.... giving local police chiefs the ability to evaluate all aspects of an application for a gun license ===> define “ALL aspects”

.... all large capacity weapons and grandfathered assault weapons ..... ====> Very loose definition here

.... mental health records for review to be destroyed after decision ====> Those who believe this, raise your hand

.... 25% sales tax on ammunition, firearms, shotguns, and rifles; dedicates funds towards firearms licensing, police training, mental health services, and victim’s services ====> With all due respect, government has no credibility on what it promise to spend

smoothsailing ( from the article)~:” Requires all applicants for gun licenses and FID cards to sign a waiver of mental health records for review to be destroyed after decision.”

How about we have mental health evaluations on all potential political candidates ?

I know that Massachusettes has the reputation of being “ TAXACHUSETTES “ , but the state fees , insurance , evaluations , and incidental expense and forms are mind boggleing !
Probably , that is the intent !!

I have this image of indoor gun ranges being like the guarded speakeasy of the prohibition era.

And we will have a modern day version of an Elliot Ness breaking down the doors and confiscation and destruction of hoarded un registered firearms.

I've posted several replies about what I remember of the "Fairness Doctrine" and how it was used to suppress inalienable rights for some without repealing the First Amendment or harming the rights of others -- similar shenanigans seem to be afoot vis-a-vis the Second Amendment

Here's one example from about ten days ago..

We never agreed to give up our First Amendment rights..

but for decades the "Fairness Doctrine" said that free speech meant that the licensed broadcasting industry (individual radio stations) must offer air time for opposing viewpoints on controversial issues.. or else!

The First Amendment remained but conservative opinion was stifled simply by citizens' (liberal shills') complaints about "fairness" thus threatening the station owners' licenses..

a kinda of "Fairness Doctrine" approach would give the illusion that the Second Amendment was respected. Maybe, complaints from gun-grabber shills that it's not fair how Joe Gunowner does this or that so he must store his firearms at a government location or something . . . .

The point is: We never agreed to give up our First Amendment rights but . . . .

Political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union

" Psychiatry of the Brezhnev period was used as a tool to eliminate political opponents ("dissidents"), people who openly expressed their views that contradict officially declared dogmas.[13]:17 In case the person did not agree with the specific actions of people in leading positions and criticized them by using philosophic dogmas according to the writings by Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Lenin, the term "philosophical intoxication" was widely used to diagnose mental disorders.[13]:15 This method was also employed against religious prisoners and most especially against well-educated former atheists who adopted a religion. In such cases their religious faith was determined to be a form of mental illness that needed to be cured.[14] Formerly highly classified extant documents from "Special file" of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union published after the dissolution of the Soviet Union demonstrate that the authorities of the country quite consciously used psychiatry as a tool to suppress dissent.[15] Following the fall of the Soviet Union, it was often reported that some opposition activists and journalists were detained in Russian psychiatric institutions in order to intimidate and isolate them from society."

The left says abortion should be safe and RARE:

What is the mechanism for assuring that we don’t have REPEAT abortion customers...?

I think we need to track it —permanent record, interview with standard questions ahead of time, regular inspections of facilities.

Also customers who are pro-choice should have to get a card, with photo ID, etc.

This will prevent “junk abortions”, back-alley tragedies, etc.

I guarantee you that this is what is coming:

- Ever been prescribed an anti-depressant or sleeping aid? You are mentally ill

- Ever admitted to a friend, counselor, or family member you abused alcohol? You are mentally ill.

- Ever had marriage counseling? You are mentally ill.

- Any veterans or police officers who sought treatment for Post Traumatic Stress? You are mentally ill.

- Have you every played "violent" video games? You are mentally ill.

If people don't know this is coming, they are not paying attention.

Massachusetts State Representative David Linsky has filed a new bill that would force gun owners to undergo mental health background checks, pay an additional 25% tax on all forms of ammunition, and require firearms categorized as “assault weapons” to be stored outside of their homes at government approved sites.

18 USC § 241 - Conspiracy against rights

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

****and require firearms categorized as “assault weapons” to be stored outside of their homes at government approved sites.***

I believe this was done twice. Once, in 1775, the Brits tried to seize the armory and got shot up.

The second was at Faneuil Hall Boston, the Brits then seized the arms and refused to return them.

http://www.bostonteapartyship.com/faneuil-hall

Following the first shots of the American Revolution at Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775, on April 27, the military governor of the Province of Massachusetts Bay and commander-in-chief of all British forces in North America, General Thomas Gage, ordered all firearms owned by the Boston citizenry stored in Faneuil Hall.

On April 27, “1778 fire arms, 634 pistols, 973 bayonets and 38 blunderbusses” were received, properly labeled with the names of the owners, and sorted for storage at Faneuil Hall. Gage promised the weapons would be returned to their owners “at a suitable time”.

Gage feared an attack on Boston was imminent and feared the civilian populace would join in the resistance, confronting him with an inner and outer enemy.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

>

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?

Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?

The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!

If...if...We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.
