Hahaha, the senate can propose an “assault weapons” ban, but not a budget as they’re required to do by law.
If they pass such a ban, I will, for the first time in my life, purchase an “assault rifle”, before it goes into effect.
I’m not personally aware of anybody willing to “register” anything.
Is a “bullet button” related to “the thing that goes up”??? I thought I was reasonably informed on firearms terminology but those two just escape me. Can somebody please translate?
People killed in the last 25 years by:
pistol grips = 0
mounted bayonets = 0
This is like enforcing speeding laws by banning racing stripes.
National assault weapon ban coming Thursday
This rifle fires 3 round bursts AND fires on full automatic. They have been illegal in this country since 1934.
You have ALREADY eroded the 2nd amendment to the point that we can't even possess the "arms" intended in the amendment.
Enough is enough.
So, how does this person expect to get it through house. Even with Boehner as Speaker, the ‘Pubbies are not gong to commit this sort of suicide.
Dont remember O talking about doing this last year.
Thankfully I’m getting old enough that I won’t have to go through fights for our liberty much longer. I’m getting tired of people saying “it’s the guns, not the individual”. I can remember prior to 1968 when you could purchase surplus WWII firearms from a firm in Alexandria, VA (Ye Old Hunter’s Lodge or something like that) with no background check and have the item mailed to you. So prior to 1968 we had nothing to protect us, and where was our crime rate? I venture to say it was much better than now. But what happened to make crime increase? Maybe it was the fact that we started by killing our babies, Hollywood glamorized murder, or that poverty and drugs created pockets of high crime areas within our major cities? But no, it’s not that....it’s the guns! So instead of making individuals responsible or attempting to solve the real issues, we blame the inert object. I guess that fits in nicely with the “we’re all special” mentality that’s creating a nation of disappointed and emotionally immature youth that would rather rob their elders than work (with apologies to today’s responsible youth that stand on principle).
States can choose not to enforce this. Just like CA refuses to enforce federal Pot laws, right?
Come and get them.
Impeach and remove or replace by the vote.
....but Friday my husband and I were in Walmart and checked the gun/ammo aisle...
...except for a few stray bullets, the shelves were completely empty.
I asked the employee if they were getting more....
...he said to be there in line the next morning at 7AM.....they would have a new shipment...
..and by the afternoon they would be completely empty again.
it has to pass the house too, right?
what scares me is the cowards in the RINO party.
Are these people insane? Pistol grips and bayonet lugs do not kill people. When was the last time one private citizen was bayoneted by another?
I think the DC dwellers have forgotten about the ‘consent of the governed’ Thing.
Senator Feinstein, with all due respect (which is NONE for you, beyotch) - Canada already spent $2 billion to do this in a country with 10% of the USA's population, and finally gave up.
Are you really stupid enough to think that you're going to succeed with a government boondoggle of that magnitude when it's already been proven that it can't be done? Especially in a country with the gun culture and history of resistance to gun laws that we have in the US? What an incredible waste of the Senate's and the American people's time.
She can propose a completely unworkable law that likely won't even make it out of committee, but they can't pass a #$%## budget? It's time for a new Tea Party, again.
I propose that Swineslime release all of her armed security protection and walk the streets alone like the rest of us.
