Congress Rolls Out Gun Control legislation

 

Just the beginning as to what the Democrats have in mind ultimately.  Let’s see how easy the medicine goes down. Of course let’s start with the ammo and gun magazines.

A group of Democratic lawmakers in the House and the Senate on Wednesday introduced gun control legislation that would ban the sale, manufacturing, transfer, possession or importation of magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds.

The bill comes after President Biden last week called on Congress to ban “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazines.

Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey and Reps. Diana DeGette of Colorado, Ted Deutch of Florida, and Dina Titus of Nevada, rolled out the legislation Wednesday, known as the Keep Americans Safe Act.

Magazines holding more than 10 rounds were banned for 10 years under the Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994. “We cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence,” the Department of Justice-funded study concluded in 2004. “Should it be renewed, the ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.”

The legislation would also authorize a “high-capacity” magazine buyback program; require any “high-capacity” magazines manufactured after the bill is enacted to have a “conspicuous serial number” and date of manufacture printed on it, so that it can be identified by law enforcement; and ensure law enforcement agencies have the authority to “seize and destroy high-capacity magazines possessed illegally.”

Recall this? Biden learned from the master.

Note Obama used the“National emergency powers” he believed he had.

Flashback: Obama uses ‘National Emergency Powers’ to ban guns

According to a Presidential Executive Order issued Wednesday, the importation of AKs manufactured by the Kalashnikov Concern in Izhmash, Russia has been banned.

This includes the popular “Saiga” line of rifles and shotguns.

 

Other than that all is well in the swamp.

 

Under 10 percent of “March for our Lives” were under 18

 

So the usual suspects no doubt were involved with the so-called “march” in D.C. on Saturday. Less than 10 percent were under 18.  But no matter, once again, the siren call for our guns begins again. Now ammunition is under attack. Thanks to dear Wasserman-Schultz. No discussion of the failures of the government. The School, the Sheriff. I’ll add a few words from the NRA:

 

A sociologist on MSNBC threw cold water on all the media’s claims that the March For Our Lives protests were spontaneous and led by the nation’s children during a “Morning Joe” segment on Monday.

While Fisher tried to make it sound like these individuals were all potential voters, it is likely that many of those who showed up were simply run-of-the-mill liberal activists.

University of Maryland sociologist Dana Fisher conducted a study of the demographics of Saturday’s march in Washington, D.C., and discovered that only less than 10 percent of those in the crowd were under the age of 18.

The study was done by going through the crowds with tablets and conducting surveys of participants and then extrapolating trends from the data collected, according to Fisher.

Raising the age to buy guns at the age of 21?

 

Another feel good moment for the uninformed. Earlier I posted

The U. S. is 3rd in murders throughout the world.Take out 5 Democrat controlled cities, the United States is 4th FROM THE BOTTOM, in the ENTIRE world, for murders

So of course, the fly over country whose citizens don’t have the benefit of the so-called 4-6 minute response time from the police should give up our guns and now for good measure, raise the age for buying a gun to 21. That way, soldiers who stick out their neck and kill on our behalf on lands afar, come back and cannot buy a gun to go hunting. Makes perfect liberal sense don’t you think?

 

The U. S. is 3rd in murders throughout the world.Take out 5 Democrat controlled cities, the United States is 4th FROM THE BOTTOM, in the ENTIRE world, for murders

 

Well, well, well. This problem looks to be simple enough to solve. We keep hearing what a violent Nation we are. From these Stats, we simply need to eliminate these fine cities of their crimes. Most telling, these cities have some of the most strict gun control laws. This of course leaves their honest law-abiding citizens unable to protect themselves from the violent Riff Raff that the cities permit to dwell within.

More guns = more gun homicides? Nope.

Put this down as the chart of the day. When the left spins their tale, give them a copy of this.

A return tweet:

Here in Brazil we have total and absolute prohibition of all kinds of guns. Last year we had 70.000 murders This year we expect around 80k

 

Woman Shoots at 3 Invaders During Home Invasion in Georgia

How about this for a feel good story for a Saturday? Enjoy….

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. – Police are hoping someone can help identify two home invaders. They were caught on camera as a woman in the house shot at them.

“She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and property,” Cpl. Deon Washington with the Gwinnett County Police Department told Channel 2’s Nicole Carr.

 Surveillance video from inside the home shows the Gwinnett County woman rush from her bedroom and then unloads all her bullets on the three men who kicked in her front door.  (One dead in driveway) More at  WSBTV

 

Clinton won’t say if guns are a constitutional right

Hillary thinks our Second Amendment can be nuanced? Really? As disgusting as this creature is, the statement “If it is a constitutional right… and it is Judge Scalia’s fault that it lost it “nuance?” takes it over the top. I thought it was a majority opinion. She goes on to support lawsuits against gun manufacturers. Of course, all the better to put them out of business as they are forced to defend endless lawsuits. Here goes:

Hillary Clinton couldn’t definitively say Sunday that the Second Amendment of the Constitution guaranteed the right to bear arms during an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

Republican rival Donald Trump has charged that Clinton wants to abolish the amendment. While Stephanopoulos said he knew that wasn’t true, he pressed her on her gun views that have increasingly gone to the left.

“Do you believe that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right, that it’s not linked to service in a militia?” he asked.

“I think that for most of our history, there was a nuanced reading of the Second Amendment until the decision by the late Justice Scalia, and there was no argument until then that localities and states and the federal government had a right, as we do with every amendment, to impose reasonable regulations,” she said. “So I believe we can have common-sense gun safety measures consistent with the Second Amendment.”

Clinton then went into her gun control platform, but Stephanopoulos hit her for dodging his question, noting the D.C. vs. Heller decision that protected an individual’s right to have a firearm for lawful purposes.

“And the Heller decision also does say there can be some restrictions, but that’s not what I asked,” he said. “I said, do you believe that their conclusion that an individual’s right to bear arms is a constitutional right?”

“If it is a constitutional right, then it, like every other constitutional right, is subject to reasonable regulations, and what people have done with that decision is to take it as far as they possibly can and reject what has been our history from the very beginning of the republic, where some of the earliest laws that were passed were about firearms,” Clinton said.

Obama: America’s Founding Fathers Were Conspiracy Nuts

When the man starts to stutter it is the “tell” that he lying. This short clip sums up the whole miserable Town Hall. Meanwhile the world burns, but no need to discuss that.

If Obama wanted to assure people that he wasn’t a crazy idiot or a tyrant, he probably shouldn’t have smugly smirked about the American founding as an example of a “conspiracy theory” of Americans paranoid about a tyrannic government.

H/T:Right Scoop

Oh, and hey moron, just because you haven’t been able to do something in 7 years doesn’t mean you wouldn’t happily do it if it wasn’t for Americans preventing you from doing it. What a stupid stupid man.

Will taking an anxiety pill let Obama take your guns?

Strange isn’t it? I posted the intent to limit our guns the first time back exactly two years ago. Obama has never been shy at telegraphing what he has in mind regarding destroying our rights. In return, we as American voters have done our best to install a defense via the GOP. First the Tea Party develops, then we take the House, the Senate, and the moribund Grand Old Party does nothing but join the Democrats in our demise. Keep in mind, Obama said his “orders” would be coming out over the next couple of weeks. He is not done with us yet.

Recall New York takes guns away from 34,500 without due process
Here (2014).

But this little number may be starting us on the worst of it. Why did he take so long in moving forward? That is the question.

Obama to tighten Gun Control for those who ever took an anxiety pill? 

We saw this freight train coming now didn’t we? So now Eric Holder and the DOJ will comb our prescription plans which they will secure from the Insurance company no doubt, and put everyone on the watch list who ever took a medication for a non physical condition. You betcha. Which is estimated to be about 25 percent of the population.

The Obama administration quietly released a press statement,

The Department of Justice is proposing to change rules for the federal background check system to clarify who under U.S. law is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of mental health problems.

…..confirming President Obama will be signing two new executive actions defining who can buy a gun based on mental health issues.

Earlier this year, the State of New York used similar mental health regulations to classify anxiety as a mental health issue. Because of that, anyone who has ever reported feeling anxious could be at risk of losing their 2nd amendment rights. In fact, there are already a number of cases making their way through the court system in New York, where people actually lost their rights because they were prescribed anti-anxiety medications.

Since almost 25% of the population now takes anti-anxiety / depression medications, almost a quarter of the country could be at risk of being labeled mentally unfit to own a firearm, if these same policies take hold at a federal level.

They’ve already started going after Vets with these regulations.

The restrictions will try to limit who can buy a gun, based on past mental health issues. The new mental health restrictions, which are being enforced as regulations through the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services, will allow the government to get around certain privacy laws so they can access your private medical records. It also allows them to yet again sidestep congress.

One of regulations allows the feds to access your private medical records to determine your “mental stability” in relation to owning a firearm. If you are found to be mentally unstable, the Justice Department can then deny your right to own a firearm.  But the problem really comes from who’s defining what “mentally unstable” actually means.

Guns? So just what is it you are proposing?

This is a different kind of video for a Saturday. The left screeches that something has to be done about guns after the recent violence. This riff done over at MSNBC should bring a chuckle. When pressed on exactly what should be done, the wandering spin begins.

National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke gently makes the same point by pressing Mark Halperin and then Mika Brzezinski to explain their policy ideas when both demand action. The result is the same in both cases — they fume, they growl about Congress, but they have no proposals of their own (via the Free Beacon and Jazz):
