She was close allies with Jim Jones, who killed 400 people in Guayana, and NO ONE in the liberal SF media called her on it.
The bodies were all over the place.
He was her FRIEND and political ally.
This POS will never get out of committee much less be brought to the floor of the Senate for a vote.
Any such vague law would be used as an excuse to confiscate any weapon encountered by law enforcement.
You wouldn’t see it again for 3 years, while they “determine whether it violates any of the conditions”.
That’s if you’re lucky.
By posting a list of “legal” weapons in the bill, you imply that anything not on the list is “illegal”, whether it’s mentioned in the bill or not.
Ah, but don't worry. I mean....THAT could never happen HERE, right...?
> “a threaded barrel,”
Almost all guns have a threaded barrel (on the chamber end). Don’t think that they overlooked this.
Pretty slick work Di, such a long bill. A long list.
All ready to go, “waiting” for the right time, were ya?
Get this passed, DuFu, and the People With Rights lobby will work to pass a ban on ugly. Then whatcha gonna do?
Paragraph (1) shall not apply to (A) the importation for, manufacture for, sale to, transfer to, or possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States or a State or a department, agency, or political subdivision of a State
That looks like legalese for saying that anyone who works in any capacity for the government would be exempted from this law. Those who work in a similar capacity in the private sector would be subject to it.
This goes beyond people in law enforcement, because although they are exempted too, their exemption is listed separately.
Subparagraph (C) reads that it also shall not apply to the possession, by an individual who is retired in good standing from service with a law enforcement agency and is not otherwise prohibited
A retired police officer is no different that any other civilian. Yet, they, too would be allowed the kinds of weapons and magazines forbidden to the rest of us civilians.
Sen. John F. Kennedy’s statement, Know Your Lawmakers, Guns, April 1960, p. 4 (1960): “By calling attention to ‘a well regulated militia,’ the ‘security’ of the nation, and the right of each citizen ‘to keep and bear arms,’ our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.”
Sen. Hubert Humphrey’s statement, Know Your Lawmakers, Guns, Feb. 1960, p. 4 (1960): “Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.”
Here’s something to remember about the eventual compromises that will be offered and expected by Democrats to pass. Regulating bureaucrats, their NGO relatives and friends and relatives in social programs will continue to possess and use the firearms of their choosing. Producers will not. All gun control efforts must be defeated regardless of class considerations. The whole populace is watching, and votes in the near future will count.
What’s a threaded barrel?
Next will be “assault murders” as a hate crime. If someone kills someone with an “assault” weapon they’ll get more punishment that someone who uses a shotgun.
