Skip to comments.Harry Reidís New Gun Control Bill Is Designed To Destroy Gun Ownership
Posted on 03/28/2013 3:45:51 PM PDT by EXCH54FE
Since Senator Dianne Feinsteins (D-CA) massive gun control bill is going down in flames due to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reids (D-NV) decision to stop it in its tracks, that didnt mean that the gun grab was over. In fact, that seems to have been all political theater. The real threat comes in Harry Reids own S 649 bill, or as its innocuous title is referred to as Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013. Its anything but safe for communities, schools or freedom and has sweeping legislation that has the potential to destroy gun ownership in America. Because of its introduction last Thursday, it will probably be brought up immediately following the Easter recess.
The bills summary says that it is To ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale, and for other purposes.
According to Gun Owners of America:
We expected it to contain the Veterans Gun Ban, which would mean that you would sell, gift, or raffle a gun in America at the risk of a 15-year prison sentence because of something you didnt know about the veteran/buyer.
But, surprisingly to us, the Far Left has convinced Reid to include the original Schumer version of the Universal Registry Bill. This would ban private sales of firearms, unless purchasers first get the permission from the government. If Senators can pass this de facto registration bill, they will be well on the way to confiscation (see, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo in New York, who has a gun owner registry and has called for gun confiscation). If this bill is passed, Senators will claim that they broke the back of gun owners in America.
GOA also pointed out that there is still every evidence that Reid will move to proceed to the bill under regular order, which means he will need 60 votes to advance to the gun control buffet.
The only no compromise Second Amendment organization also said that anti-gun zealots have begun to use the ObamaCare Paradigm to threaten, bribe, and coerce senators into submission on the most far-reaching aspects of gun control, including Feinsteins proposal to ban shotguns, rifles and handguns that millions of Americans legally own. So if the motion to proceed to S. 649 is adopted with 60 votes, then Feinsteins ban could be passed in the Senate with only 50 votes (plus Biden).
We have a Second Amendment for a reason and it isn’t about hunting. Our right to keep and bear arms is to deter politicians like Harry Reid from trampling our other liberties.
The Democrat party has ceased to be,
They wish total control over you and me.
Socialists and Communists they have become,
Destroy America, their rule number one ,
Cutting the military their ultimate goal,
Along with selling their devilish soul.
Drones in the sky in the land of the free,
So they can keep tabs on you and me.
The Second Amendment they HATE you see,
Because it means freedom for you and me.
They tap our phones and e-mail too,
They are afraid of what we can do.
They want my guns, they are saying to me,
Not as long as I breath and able to see.
I took my oath and went to Nam,
They WILL NOT get guns from this old man !
Many have died for the red white and blue,
If the need arises, I will too.
Guns from my hands they will have to pry,
MOLON LABE is the battle cry !!!!!!
Looks like so far they’re being successful with all the government buying of ammunition - for practicing you know.
One of the reasons I left the NRA is that they give money to DemocRATS—Harry Reid among them.
Given recent developments in the Senate, I wonder if the NRA is going to ask Reid for a refund.
The real threat are the RINOs who shot down Sharon Angle. She may not have been perfect, but she was far preferable to this treasonous backstabbing little crook.
“The real threat are the RINOs who shot down Sharon Angle.”
Along with the NRA, who supported Reid
Our “senators” need a long drop from a short rope for even thinking about attacking the US Constitution, which is exactly what they are doing, right now.
“Listen, nothing can or will stop the confiscation of all your guns.”
Speak for yourself. You damn sure don’t speak for me.
“Listen, nothing can or will stop the confiscation of all your guns. I see a lot of talk but nothing solid that can stop it from happening. At least half or more Americans don’t give a damn as long as King Obama feeds them. We have been introduced to communism and it is getting stronger and stronger. “
Then may America BURN...
Heard a commercial on the radio to call your senator about supporting gun control. I was so ticked when I heard it so I called Sen Jeff Flake’s office. His staff said Flake wasn’t sure where he stood on the issue of gun registrastion.
She said he needs to hear from his constituents before he decides.
I was floored. They got an ear full from me. People need to get on the phones and not let up!
If all gun owners refused to turn over their guns there’s not enough cops to take the guns and not enough prisons to hold them. But, sadly I believe most gun owners will turn in their guns if told to do so.
I’m positive 90% of the liberals will turn them in. They’ll do anything their king tells them to do.
Yea, but it's the other half who own the guns ;-)
I cant turn mine in...lost 'em...boating accident...tragic...the whole safe...
Apparently you don't know many gun owners........
In FACT why the hell are you here!?!?!?
Surprised you said that.....
And you have an army to stop it. Wake up. Simple words will stop nothing. Grow up
It will unless the BS talk turns into something that will work. Talk won't. The Republicans have nothing but talk to work with. It is getting past the point where if something does not happen it never will. This is exactly the way Nazi Germany went. I'm very old and seen shit happen.
I'm with you there.

I would rather go down in a blaze of glory to support the Second Amendment. We all die someday. Might as well make it worth while.
Why don’t YOU grow up, Sport.
Folks that think and live as defeatist cowards, are seen as lowlifes by me, Sport.
I have formulated my reply years ago
It’s not whether people will turn their guns in if told to do so.
It’s whether people will start shooting if they’re told to turn in their guns.
When you are standing in line, waiting to board the cattle cars...I won’t be.
Well they ain't listening or deterred.
This may be a case of "use it or lose it" - 2A.
I figure most democrats will turn them in. They’re stupid enough to vote for obama. And many conservatives will turn them in. That’s why I say most would do as told.
A good friend of mine just said the same thing. His exact words were “You’re gonna’ die anyway.”
But what I expect is a few highly publicized shootouts with someone who wouldn’t turn in their guns. And they’ll keep happening until quite a few people die. Then more and more people will start to comply. They don’t want to arrest people. They don’t have enough prisons to hold them and the court system would be overwhelmed. They want compliance.
I think gun removal is just like gay marriage. It’s inevitable. I am not a defeatist, but looking at the trends in this country currently, we have no backbone, collectively speaking.
Even if there is armed insurrection, it will not be large enough to support a full rebellion. And who knows what the troops who will be sent to fight will be told about you? Who knows what your fellow Americans will be told about you? After all, you are shooting at the government in your insurrection which automatically places you on the DO NO TRUST list of the public.
When Americans started accepting limitations on any of their rights as outlined in the Constitution, is the day gun confiscation was started. The Bill of Rights requires inflexibility on the part of the people over those rights. We are no longer that kind of society.
Good, if most of the liberals turn theirs in, it will make American Revolution II a bit easier
Great point! Maybe ALL of the liberals will turn in their guns. Then we can use them for shields.
“Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013”??? Okay America, are you FED UP and TIRED of this PSY OPS BULLSH*T?
The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government lest it come to dominate our lives and interests. Patrick Henry.

Well maybe the liberals will turn them in but compliance on gun confiscation programs around the world has been very low...well under 50% by estimates.
“The Bill of Rights requires inflexibility on the part of the people over those rights. We are no longer that kind of society.”
For those who are in support of taking the guns, you need to ask yourself a very important question, and I am not just talking about the politicians, because if you support them, you have chosen your side.
Are you willing to die to take my guns?
The Tea Party helped get the Dems from control of the House in 2010. Maybe a 2nd Amendment Party could finish the job on the Senate side and RHINOs for 2014.
