Democrats Seek to Ban Hunting Ammunition in Wisconsin
redstate.com ^ | 2/15/12 | briansikma

Posted on 02/15/2013 4:49:46 PM PST by Nachum

A Democratic state senator and three Democratic state representatives have circulated draft legislation that would ban civilian possession of hollow point or frangible ammunition in Wisconsin. According to existing Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources regulations, sportsmen and women in Wisconsin must use such ammunition when hunting deer or bear. The Democratic lawmakers, two of whom are freshman, all hail from urban districts in the City of Milwaukee.

The reasoning behind the legislation is somewhat muddled. The impact, however, is quite clear. According to a legislative counsel review of the legislation, it would essentially make it impossible for civilians to hunt deer or bear in Wisconsin.

“The provision in the bill draft that provides whoever intentionally sells, transports or possesses any bullet that expands or flattens easily in the human body is guilty of a Class H felony conflicts with current DNR hunting rules. Under s. NR 10.09 (1)(c)2., ‘no person shall hunt any deer or bear with any air rifle, rim-fire rifle, any center-fire rifle less than .22 caliber, any .410 bore or less shotgun or handgun loaded with .410 shotgun shell ammunition or with ammunition loaded with nonexpanding type bullets or ammunition loaded with shot other than a single slug or projectile.’ The bill draft does not provide an exception to the prohibition on possessing expanding bullets for deer or bear hunting.” (Emphasis added)

It's on people.

Outlaw my firearms and their magazines and their ammo. It's on.

Law abiding people need not apply, we are the enemies of the lawmakers.

We have a ruling class and they have made their minds up. We suck and we need to be stomped out of legal existence. I am the enemy.

Do these idiots understand that hollow point ammunition is designed to stop inside of a person, where full metal jacket ammunition usually goes right through?

There were plenty of "idiots" here and the conservative blogosphere having a cow over the purchase of "hollow point rounds" that were "banned by the Geneva Convention" in the hullabaloo over the large DHS and Social Security agency ammo purchases, so this level of cluelessness unfortunately isn't confined to the Left.

I am a law abiding citizen today but CO lawmakers may make me a criminal tomorrow. I will not lift a finger to change that status if they do. In fact I will buy more of those unlawful toys I have been wanting for a long time before their laws are put into effect.

If I wanted to obey their new, proposed laws, I could not, without a lot of time and effort (which I do not have).

I do not know how long it would take to locate the things they are wanting me to find and surrender.

And this is not due to deliberate obfuscation; it is only due to a messy garage (I think the garage — may be a storage shed — or ... well, they are in a ‘safe place’).

"These state DemoQuacks are in an anti-gun frenzy across the country."

A magazine ban just passed the Colorado House by voice vote. Do you know what that means? IMO, it would be a good idea to watch for voice votes vs. roll call votes on certain bills in the various states. There are a few VIP constituents behind each of those politicians and both parties, and most of them would rather continue to be private.

The idiots just make stuff up, they have no idea what the laws they propose actually mean.

Tell ya what. Read between the lines or whatever the heck you want with this comment.

I grew up in that state. I know the people. I PITY the person who tries to take their ammo away, who tells them they can’t hunt.

Oh yeah....

<Coumo voice> You don't need 10 bullets to kill a deah!!!! </Coumo voice>

<Cyber Liberty voice> I don't want 10 bullets to kill a deer!!! I want a lot of rounds to kill the thugs trying to rape my daughter!!! </Clyber Liberty voice>

I had some dope on Facebook wondering why I want a 30 round magazine to kill Babmi, and I replied, "You idiot! I don't want to kill Bambi. I want to kill the thug trying to kill me or my family."

Bluff and bluster. Ain’t gonna happen here. Hunting is a multi-BILLION dollar industry in this state.

We have a true Republican for a Governor and Republicans (with the exception of Dale Schultz - POS!) control the House and the Assembly.

Nope. Not buying it...but I HAVE been buying ammo, LOL!

They're all big city types, they know absolutely nothing about guns, they're just looking for scary sounding stuff to moan about.

They are so arrogant that they don't know how ignorant they are.

For many years, until Scott Weaver was elected Governor, citizens of Wisconsin were repeatedly frustrated in attempts to secure legal authority for concealed carry. I doubt they are going to accept this cockeyed harassment proposal.

CO lawmakers may make me a criminal.

Ayn Rand wrote about this in her book, Atlas Shrugged. The government made all Americans criminals with the laws they legislated!

I totally agree. Any such bill would NOT be signed by Governor Walker. In the event a different (Demodummie) gov. were to get elected, my continuing purchase and reloading of ammuntion will continue until I run out of storage capacity. I own several buildings so that may take some time.......
