Democrats want to eliminate your Bill of Rights with the First and Second Amendments at the top of the list because their party is now run by audacious control freaks who strongly believe they have the right to take your freedoms away.
The Democrat collectivist class have introduced H. R. 4269, “To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.”
HR 4269 is not the simple assault weapons ban of 2015 as it has been euphemistically named. They have cleverly reworded the Second Amendment to mean the opposite as Bearing Arms pointed out. These are the hate-America types who think they have the right to infringe on your freedoms and in their good graciousness will tell you what freedoms you are allowed to have.
It will ban most commonly-used rifles, shotguns and handguns in the United States, any device or part that could “accelerate the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle”, parts kits which enables citizens to build common firearms and standard magazines.
If it has a pistol grip, has a fixed magazine that can hold more than five rounds, is a semiautomatic, has a telescope, can hold a detachable magazine – it’s out.
None of this will stop violence or violence using a gun. It’s simply to get rid of guns.
Think of how this might put gun makers and gun dealers out of business.
The bill makes it “unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semiautomatic assault weapon.”
The goal of course is – by banning transfer of all these guns – making them illegal throughout the country by simple attrition.
It wouldn’t take long.
It will prohibit the passing down of firearms to family members and the sharing of firearms at the range. When you die, your inherited guns will be illegal. Collectors items might be dealt with the same way.
People need to understand that this is about far more than disarming Americans. They want to take all our freedoms because of an insatiable desire by the far left running the party. It won’t stop and eventually there will be violence. They are trying to defeat freedom and individualism through incrementalism and call it a peaceful takeover but eventually it must disintegrate into a worse form of tyranny and violence will follow. There is no other outcome but that.
HR 4269 was passed in 1986 and has always been an important provision of federal law intended to protect the right of law-abiding gun owners to transport firearms throughout our nation.
The provision is a section of federal law (18 U.S.C. § 926A), enacted to guarantee the right of a law-abiding person to transport an unloaded firearm between a location where he or she may legally possess it and a destination where he or she may also legally possess it, regardless of state or local laws that would otherwise apply. Under the current law, the gun must be cased or otherwise not readily accessible.
Most states allow it but the freedom-robbing states of New York and New Jersey ignore the law and arrest innocent people who follow the law, resulting in inappropriate arrest or detention, particularly at New York City airports and even in Albany, New York.
The clear intent of the law has always been to ensure that law-abiding persons could transport firearms between two locations where they have a legal right to possess them.
On December 16, Rep. David Cicilline and 123 other Democrat members of the House of Representatives introduced H.R. 4269, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2015, a bill virtually identical to S. 150, introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in the Senate in 2013.
It failed in 2013 and it will fail now, however, if Hillary Clinton becomes president, it will be different. More than any candidate in U.S. presidential history, she is campaigning on a far-left anti-gun platform.
Please note that H.R. 4269, like other federal “assault weapon” bills DOES NOT “reinstate” the federal “assault weapon ban” of 1994-2004. This ban would be far worse. Of course HR4269 is not meant and was never meant to institute an assault weapons ban but the gun control activists are using the word “reinstate” to mislead the American people into thinking it’s a renewal of the gun ban that expired in 2004.
It’s completely untrue.
The 1994 ban allowed manufacturers to produce AR-15s without flash suppressors and one or two other external attachments, and to make similar adjustments to other firearms.Magazines with over ten rounds were allowed to be imported, the NRA reported.
CBS 60 Minutes reported that the first year of the “ban” was “the best year for the sales of assault weapons ever.”
Hillary is not Bill and will take away our Second Amendment. She will do whatever the far left tells her to do.
The NRA reports that the new ban would prohibit the manufacture of most detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifles, numerous semi-automatic shotguns configured for defensive purposes, any semi-automatic rifle with a fixed magazine over 10 rounds (except for a tubular magazine .22), any semi-automatic pistol like the HK SP-89, any semi-automatic pistol with a fixed magazine over 10 rounds, revolving cylinder shotguns, various other named and described firearms, frames and receivers of banned guns, and ammunition magazines over 10 rounds, except those for tubular .22 rimfire rifles.
Two weeks ago, an ABC News/Washington Post poll found that the American people oppose an “assault weapon” ban by a 53%-45% margin. If they knew what was in this one, they’d like it a lot less.
Democrats want PC, to ban hate speech, control religious freedom, ban guns, and we have a president who has been spying on Congress and Bibi Netanyahu. That’s just for starters. This is way past socialism.
Hillary Clinton is running on this issue. She mentions it at every town hall.
Listen to her latest diatribe of lies and understand the tyranny she espouses. Let this Amendment fall, they will all fall.
