...Commission Calls For Banning Possession Or Sale Of Any Gun That Can Fire More Than 10 Bullets
Hart\ford Courant ^ | March 18, 2013 | Christopher Keating

Posted on 03/19/2013 2:00:09 AM PDT by Daffynition

Governor Dannel Malloy’s handpicked commission on Sandy Hook is calling for some of the strongest gun-control measures in the nation, including the banning or possession of any gun that can fire more than 10 bullets without reloading.

The ban would be among the most far-reaching in the United States and comes in direct reaction to the use of a military-style assault rifle and 30-round magazines in the massacre of 20 children and six adult educators three months ago in Newtown.

“This prohibition would extend to military-style firearms as well as handguns,” the commission’s report says. “Law enforcement and military would be exempt from this ban.”

The commission’s chairman, Hamden Mayor Scott Jackson, noted in a letter to Malloy that some of the 42 recommendations are controversial.

If this makes sense....then why not go all the way and just say we can only purchase one-shot guns. You have to reload each and every time. And even force the cops to have the same type of weapons. Drive-by shootings would end up with one shot fired at best (unless you were in a Pacer, then maybe two shots fired).

Or the shooter was ignorant of the law and employed a 50-round drum, not realizing he was breaking the law.

Because they fear you. They fear you because they are criminals looting the Treasury and the next generation, and if enough of you ever figure that out, you will remove them by force of arms, and probably kill them.

Almost Any semi auto with a removable magazine can have mags
Fabricated with lots of rounds. It is in the mag not the gun.

Many Tubular mag shotguns can have the tube extended for more rounds.

I suppose that we should be requiered to turn in out weapons so that we can be issued an original flintlock rifle.

Connecticut politician’s are such A-holes.

An old Marlin Glenfield 60 from 1978 holds 18+1 .22lr cartridges.
I guess that old squirrel rifle is now an ‘assault weapon.’
No, wait, according to Ms. Feinstein we’re supposed to say ‘weapon of war’ now. Sorry.

I was wondering if any of you know if the ability to fire more than 10 rounds will ban all 10 round magazines, as with one in the pipe they have the ability to fire 11 rounds without a reload. This would be a big issue for a large percentage of the .45’s such as Glock, Taurus, and dozens of other pistols. And yes, I know that you can even buy extended magazines for pistols such as Colt and many others bringing their loaded capacity from 8 or 9 (with a round chambered) over the supposed 10 limit. I think the key phrase in this gun grab is “The ability to fire more than 10 rounds without a reload”. Taken literally, that would wipe out the legality to own damn near all semi-auto handguns. After that I suppose they will limit Sixshooter Wheel-guns to 5 rounds. Ooops - Forgot about the 5 rounders - The Judge and many other 5 round revolvers. Guess we eventually will be down to 4 rounds max, which will disarm the American Citizen of 95% of their Self-Defense Tools. Won't even get into the Rifle laws on deck, as I haven't had my coffee yet and I hate to ponder such UNCONSTITUTIONAL Tyranny without my coffee and a cig. Other 5% will be the Thugs and other various criminal elements that will still carry whatever they want - as they don't obey any of those STEEEN'KIN Laws.

Why? Studies show they can be at least as deranged as the average non-military/LEO citizen.
Could the Libtards explain their rationale?

So much for my idea that state legislatures, and Governors are the last bastion of defense for the American people against an out of control federal leviathan. Looks like that depends (no pun intended) on what state you live in. Hopefully there are more that hold the line than the other kind.

...including the banning or possession of any gun that can fire more than 10 bullets without reloading.

So a single-shot shotgun would be illegal.

“Can’t almost any gun fire more than 10 bullets/ I guess not a shot gun.”

Just about any gun which utilizes an external and retractable magazine will become illegal. Also, some tube fed guns such as some 22’s. this law would wipe out a bunch of guns for sure - which is its intent.

Most Winchester & Marlin 30/30 lever action rifles only hold 6 rounds, but can be reloaded. A gun that can only fire 10 rounds or less sounds like a disposable weapon, no reload.

Levers that use 22 LR (rimfire) shells typically hold 10-15 rounds. I saw no notice to exception of these.

I suspect the wording here is very twisted, but they may be POLs so stupid as to not know the difference. I have seen Congressmen (& women) who clearly demonstrate this)

Because they know how you are going to react to what they are planning. Theft of wealth, confiscation of property, subjection and murder of those not deemed necessary.

aguila mini slugs would push most guns over the top on capacity.
same with any tube fed rifle that holds magnum rounds- using the special version would put them over the top.

Because they know they can only control you so far before you fight back. In order for them to continue to tighten their Rule over Us... they need us as helpless as possible.

There is no other reason. Anything else they try to use as a reason is a lie.

Period. Full stop.

Colorado governor to sign gun controls into law

Published March 19, 2013

| Associated Press

DENVER – Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper will sign legislation Wednesday that sets limits on ammunition magazines and expands background checks for firearms, marking a Democratic victory in a state where gun ownership is a treasured right and Second Amendment debate has played out in the wake of two mass shootings.

The measures proposed are some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, and their passage comes after weeks of tense legislative battles. Republicans and gun rights supporters put up a major fight against the measures in this politically moderate state, while Democrats made them the centerpieces of a package of legislative proposals drafted in reaction to shooting rampages at a suburban Denver movie theater and a Connecticut elementary school last year.

Stupidity most be a requirement of public office!

A classroom of 30 kids.
An insane evil human being with a gun and 5 - 10 round magazines still equals Sandy Hook!
In a combat situation I can go through 5 magazines in a matters of minutes.

It is a sham to get their foot in the anti-gun door.

t has always been about handguns. Assault rifles are just a decoy to try and get their anti-gun foot in the door.

Once they get a ban on AWs then they will use the same reasons to go after handguns.

John Kennedy killed with a 5 shot bolt action rifle.

Charles Whitman, killed 14, wounded 32 others mostly with a bolt action 6mm hunting rifle. Also used a shotgun and an m1 carbine.

Medgar Evers, shot with a 5 shot 1917 bolt action Enfield rifle.

Martin Luther King, shot with a 4 shot Remington 760 pump action Gamemaster rifle.

Bobby Kennedy with a .22 Iver Johnson Cadet revolver.

George Wallace wounded with a 5 shot Charter Arms .38spl revolver.

Howard Johnsons shooter killed nine, wounded thirteen with a 4 shot RUGER .44 mag Deerslayer rifle.

Gerald Ford attacked with a 7 shot 1911 semi auto.

Edmond OK post office with two National Guard 7 shot 1911 pistols.

John Lennon murdered with a 5 shot Charter Arms revolver.

Ronald Reagan and Jim Brady with an RG-14 .22 revolver.

What do they all have in common? NONE over 7 rounds, yet after each one came a cry of panic to ban all of them.

This falls in line as to what Nelson “Pete” Shields wanted to do.

Nelson T. ‘Pete’ Shields
Founder of Handgun Control, Inc.

“I’m convinced that we have to have federal legislation to build on. We’re going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily — given the political realities — going to be very modest.

Of course, it’s true that politicians will then go home and say, ‘This is a great law. The problem is solved.’ And it’s also true that such statements will tend to defuse the gun-control issue for a time.

So then we’ll have to strengthen that law, and then again to strengthen that law, and maybe again and again. Right now, though, we’d be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal — total control of handguns in the United States — is going to take time.

My estimate is from seven to ten years. The problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns sold in this country. The second problem is to get them all registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition — except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors — totally illegal.”

-Pete Shields, Chairman and founder, Handgun Control Inc., “A Reporter At Large: Handguns,” The New Yorker, July 26, 1976, 57-58

“Yes, I’m for an outright ban [on handguns].”

-Pete Shields, Chairman emeritus, Handgun Control, Inc., 60 Minutes interview

HCI, around 1984, came out in favor of a ban on semi-auto rifles and shotguns.

My latest post on that blog:

I see the potted plant platoon is out in force today. These are the people that would like to live their lives in the care of the government relying on the government to feed them, give them just what they need to live, never worrying about how to protect themselves, afraid that some creature will come along and pee on them and, finally, they so believe that being a potted plant is so wonderful that we should all live that way.

I, and my fellow citizens who believe in liberty and freedom, refuse to become a potted plant. We would rather have the freedom to live as WE see fit and how we choose. Even if it means taking chances.

We want choose our own soil and nourishment not what some bureaucrat decides for us.
