Assault weapons ban passed in House of Representatives


Recommended Posts

With two R’s for and five D’s against.

What happens in the Senate will be interesting to say the least.

BTW, did anyone seriously think we would not get to this point again?  Remember the ‘90’s?

Wow. It says even possession is illegal if that Fox article is to be believed. Even if this somehow passed the Senate I think SCOTUS would quickly strike it down.

They did a pretty good job of defining it. Basically ANY AR or AK. They even list brands and models specifically in the bill. 

They even added any "semi-auto copy of an exsisting full-auto gun" and any "semi-auto that takes a detatchable magazine including rimfires".

So, Glock 17's are out becuase there is a Glock 18, Beretta 92's are out becuse there is Beretta 93 and so forth. The intent was to after AR, AK, UZI pistols and the such but rest are just icing to them.

Ruger 10/22's are out as are ones like it as only tube-feds were exempt.

This one is way worse that the 94 ban.

The two Rs -- Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania and Jacobs of New York -- need some opposition in their primaries.  I don't usually make campaign donations to candidates in other states but I might make an exception this time.

Absolutely ! And it was at that point I knew there would be a day where "we" would become felons with the stroke of a pen. Seems it's growing ever closer. I'm still confident @Links2kis right on this one 🙂

I dont keep up with and understand the goverment politics that much but let me ask you this Is this thing likely to get busted down when it goes to be "approved" by the final entity ?  I ask because things like this have rose up before in the past and got shot down really quick by the higher-ups.

If I read the bill correctly fir first time (which was really just skimming over it) there is a grandfather clause for weapons owned prior to the bill becoming law.

I saw that. Fox was wrong which isn't surprising.

I've saw on several forums where there is a restriction against transfer of said "banned" grandfathered weapon. Any truth in that ?

And I've seen 3 lists of allowed weapons but have yet to see a list of the future banned weapons. I wonder if its on purpose to keep everyone speculating.

Mental midgets making laws that are absolutely against the latest SCOTUS ruling-

One example of hit and miss weapons-Ruger Mini 14 OK-Ruger Mini 14 with the word Tactical in its name not OK-

This would outlaw future sales of most semi-auto weapons including pistols and shotguns-

Literally ruining the firearms industry and putting thousands of their employees out of work-

And on this same note there also is some sort of bill riding along that would strike down the frivolous lawsuit ban and allow the manufacturers to be sued for misuse of their products-

Kinda like suing GMC for a drunk driver killing someone-not GM's fault but a person could see where this would lead-

Interestingly, there is not a sunset clause in this bill. Also, they added a provision that if any portion of the bill is declared unconstitutional, that does not affect the remaining portions of the bill.
