Let's Be Honest, The Latest Gun Control Bill Is Pretty Much A Total Ban On Firearms

Let's Be Honest, The Latest Gun Control Bill Is Pretty Much A Total Ban On Firearms

Okay—so the new ban on so-called assault weapons has been put forward and to no one’s surprise is pretty much a total gun ban. A massive slate of weapons are slated to be banned since the legislation calls for the prohibition of semi-automatic rifles and handguns that have detachable magazines, and can carry more than 10 rounds (via Washington Examiner) [emphasis mine:

House Democrats have introduced a bill banning semi-automatic firearms in the wake of the Feb. 14 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.

Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., announced Monday he is introducing the Assault Weapons Ban of 2018. More than 150 Democrats have signed on in support of the legislation, Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., said.

[…]

The bill prohibits the “sale, transfer, production, and importation” of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.

Cicilline’s legislation names 205 specific firearms that are prohibited, including the AK-47 and AR-15.

“Assault weapons were made for one purpose,” Cicilline said in a statement. “They are designed to kill as many people as possible in a short amount of time. They do not belong in our communities.”

Deutch vowed during a CNN town hall last week to introduce a bill banning semi-automatic weapons.

In all, 156 of 193 House Democrats have backed this legislation. Yet, this is destined to fail. There’s not a single Republican who will support this in the House, or at least not nearly enough to ensure passage. Moreover, the votes are not there in the Senate. Red state Democrats would be put in a bind. There is nothing as vivid to their constituents as their guns being taken away. That’s a tangible thing. Something that’s in their home being confiscated due to hyper regulatory leftist hysteria over our Second Amendment rights. They would be voting for that—I would bet heavily that more than a couple would vote with Republicans if this ever got to their doorstep, but it won’t.  Also, if we’re going by his word, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), who is a key player in the gun control pushes on the Hill, said he’s not pushing for a total ban on semiautomatics. In some ways, I think even he, a die-hard gun control advocate, knows a semiautomatic ban is a bridge too far. 

So, it’s the same old game. Democrats say let’s have a discussion, only to spring a trap on the rest of us—yelling, condemning, and denigrating those with whom they disagree on gun policy. They use children to shield them from criticism.  I don’t play that game. If you go on national television, spew nonsense, and push for the evisceration of American civil rights—I’m going to attack you. And by nonsense, I don’t mean simple disagreements; I mean things that are demonstrably false. I’m a proud NRA member. Full disclosure: I am a damn proud member—and this latest anti-gun push is tempting me to become a life member and give consistent monthly donations. That does not make me a child killer, nor is this insane smear an accurate description of the other 4,999,999 brothers and sisters in the NRA who support American freedom, the Constitution, and our Second Amendment rights. The NRA does not sell guns; that’s another garbage lie. You can be for school safety and support our Second Amendment. 

In closing, let me slit the throat of this liberal gun control push because there seems to be this aura that somehow this could be successful. We won. We’ve won before everyone started going nuts about AR-15s again. We have a Republican president and a Republican Congress; two-thirds of the governorships are Republican, 67/99 state legislatures are under Republican control, and there are over 4,100 Republican state lawmakers in office—the most in GOP history. On the federal front, any so-called assault weapons ban is DOA. On the ultimate goal of abolishing the Second Amendment, it’s never going to happen. And stop with the marriage equality comparison. Gun rights drive voters; gay marriage did not. The latter was more obtained through a consistent campaign of lawfare, which eventually made its way to the Supreme Court. 

So, breath easy, folks—a roll of toilet paper has more use and worth than this legislation.

El-Bull  the sad part is that they know it, thats why they be so mad when people like come around, they like to hang around each other, which is how they feel special, they dont have the courage, but hate when people tell them the truth, just look at them its funny when he talks about the stores in the community, the immigrant community and everyone else who comes get and go, but the negros lose to support other people, he also said no one is discussing the negros agenda, now lets go back a few comments ago, what exactly have it been telling the negros on here? but here is what i say to the negros if you think its bad now wait until 2020, the only way a negro will rest thats if he has a little bit of money lives in a white populated community or he is very rich and lives around wealthy people with every connection to the politicians and lawmakers

mr1stroke Indeed my brother, i love your truths and at the same time am bemused how people here shirk from you and your commentaries as if the truth hurts them and their brain to even grasp simple concepts----oh well, i suppose the slave mentality is embedded in their DNA. What else could it be?

El-Bull to start please thank you for posting this video, there are so many brothers who are thinking the same way, and fighting the same cause, now let me talk to the niggers, the intelligent niggers always brag about education on here i always take stand and you niggers cannot back down now because every one of my comments on those issues are on here just scroll back, when i talk about the negros always marching for other peoples cause like that Daka issue, what do you say to me, when i tell you about the community and the neighborhood what do you say to me, just listen to these 2 black men, niggers will never wake up, they will never understand and thats why i alway say i will never move back in the black community you may never make it or die in poverty but for those who works 2 jobs to pay bills in the big city will never understand, i live in a community i fall down tomorrow they have program who will pay my mortgage, pay my utilities make sure i gas for heat, make sure i have food and health benefit do they do that in Ny in the black community, or they throw you in some shelter or apt. well its simple there are so many program in the white community for white people niggers would never know or understand, white people use the resources they do their homework some of them are using those benefits while they open up businesses all they have to do in return is pay some taxes to give back, negros enjoy being slaves

What your oppressor never told you about gun control; Now you Know Why They Don’t Want Black People To Have Guns And it’s Not about Mass Killings

Roots aka TJ What De Ras  its getting kind of late, if we want change we cannot wait for s*** to happen to white people, negros have to do what white people do, used them to get what they want, thats like every racist people saying they wont do business with black people, do you know how much money they will lose at least 60% of white America dont want to do business with black people, but because of the money they compromise after all its only business

by the way for those who said they would not sit down with the president, because of MS 13 now long island have their own gang unit, about $500 million dollars was given from the federal government to fund that unit, they make the decisions whether you should be free before even see the judge if you are a gang member when you are caught

my questions to those same negros who wont sit down with Trump what have you achieved so far other than being on TV crying for heat and hot water, where are your black leaders what have they done for you since they wont sit with the president, what is their future plan for you, since they wont sit with the president where will they lead you, what is the end result, can one of you answer least one these questions?

well let me say to you intelligent and educated negros, my parents always say when you are confident you will know who you are, when you are smart you will outsmart anyone who claim to be smart and command any fools to do what you want or get what you want, but what people call you its about what you answer to, before Donald Trump white people was calling you niggers, porch monkeys, boy, and all types of name, before trump you were suffering from police brutality, being discriminating against by corporate America, whether its hiring or profiling in stores, lets not argue google the news before he was president, whether we like him or not we dont sleep with him or hang with him

so now that he is president if you were smart you would put aside your differences and find common ground to get hi assistance and find ways to take care of the issues, but thats if any one was truly concern, as usual negros live like masturbation, they talk, they brag to feel good, but there is no satisfaction, nor achievement, that is why the community have the highest unemployment rates, education rates, highest crimes ever, but the two worse problems right now in the black community they are either open shelter for mental ill individuals or rent private houses and building to put them without the people's consent which is why everyone are always complaining, and they are pushing people out due to big developers

well let me see dumb Negros are marching for gun laws, i make sure did not say anything while every one have been debating, just to see how smart or how far people can see through this madness, the white people are fighting for 3 reasons. To raise the age for the purchase of AR15, Background check, and stop the selling of AR15, but none of them are fighting for illegal guns.

an 8 years old girl was shot in the head in brooklyn yesterday while sitting in the bus after school, a bus that was full of school kids, now New York City have strict gun laws, no one has the right to barearm except for law enforcement, who is marching against that, who is raising these issues to congress, none of these Negros are in the front line, they can be in the local news running their mouths, they can march from one block to another to gain attention but thats as far as it goes, how long people been dying in the black community by gun violence, where are the negros who are marching with those white folks, how come those negros never got on the Bus to DC, wait it gets better as much as they are useless to and powerless they claim they will not sit down and talk to the president because he is racist, but in one day those white kids became activist, in one day they started a movement, in one day they gain national attention, in one day they got on the Bus and march to capital hill, and stand up to congress, in one day they were invited to sit down and meet with the president, now they are coming with several solution, one of the deputy already resigned because of his failure, they are calling for the resignation of the sheriff, they are pouring money into the school systems in Florida at least $500 million have already set for security, now do you see, not only there are people who are doing the leg work instead of talking and singing, but they are getting things done, now how come they are concern about you, dumb niggers
