Today the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force unveiled a "comprehensive set of policy principles designed to reduce gun violence while respecting the 2nd Amendment Rights of law-abiding Americans." What is the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force? A bunch of Democrats appointed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and led by Rep. Mike Thompson (D-Calif.) with the assistance of 11 (!) "vice chairs." Their mission: to "reduce and prevent gun violence while also protecting the rights of law-abiding individuals without a history of dangerous mental illness to own legitimate firearms for legitimate purposes." Are the 12 chairs of the task force also the only members? Possibly.

I’m expecting to be jailed soon for “assault thoughts.”
Assault magazine - it must be rolled up really tight, and swung with sufficient force.
Maybe that’s what the LAPD thought those two Mexican women had in their blue pickup truck.
Just five-year-olds so far.
Very carefully note what I highlighted. They've recently injected this into the discussion, and I'm very afraid of the consequences of this conditional clause.
With the Democrats in control of the newly-minted healthcare abortion in this country, you can bet your bottom dollar that they are going to redefine the mental health field in ways that will net large swaths of Americans as "mentally defective," and thus subject to denial of the right to self-defense.
I, for one, believe this will lead to the decimation of the mental health field in this nation, as people who treasure their right to armed self-defense will pass on going to see even a social worker to just talk about their day-to-day stressors.
Hug your children, embrace your parents and your elders. I believe we need to go back to an extended family, church-going, nuclear community, know-thy-neighbor way of living to combat the tyranny that's coming to our doorsteps.
New Jersey already bans hollow point ammunition.
I refuse to give up my FIREPOWER and PISTOLERO magazines!
I always thought that the right to own firearms also covered the items necessary to make them work, like magzines and ammo, scopes, bipods, ect.
I guess I was wrong.
that’s high crapacity.
With an exemption for cops? Or a total ban?
I will decide what is legitimate for my purposes. I never did find the "sporting purposes" section in the Second Amendment.
Ah, the too, too scary “copkillers.” Because cops are so damn precious. They aren’t ever doing anything that they deserve to get killed for, and it’s not like non-cops could ever wear vests./s
I’ve heard the ridiculous term “cop-killer bullets” being resurrected again after Newtown, as well as “armor-piercing bullets”, even by Leon Panetta, to our own troops. Their definition is any bullet that can pierce a thin kevlar vest, which includes every hunting rifle round in existence.
Now that is one magazine that needed to bite the dust!
>>> I always thought that the right to own firearms also covered the items necessary to make them work......I guess I was wrong.
You are not alone.
“We” are playing Libs’ word game.
Drones that wannabe “queen bees”
Do they have a staple in the naval?
