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.

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.

Biden: ‘Police should Shoot in the leg not in the heart’

Buried in all the mayhem and little noticed is that Joe Biden breeched from his bunker to give us his latest thoughts on good police policy.

 The last time we heard from Joe Biden on guns it was 2013 and he was advising his wife and others to break the law by firing a shotgun recklessly into the air without aiming in order to ward off home intruders. Here is what he said:

I said, Jill, if there’s ever a problem just walk out on the balcony here or walk out, put that double-barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,” Biden said. “I promise you who ever is coming in is not go — you don’t need an AR-15

This should work. No need for an AR-15

Here is more when the Biden defense was used.

“Instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there’s an unarmed person coming at ’em with a knife or something to shoot ’em in the leg instead of the heart is a very different thing,” he said.

As Biden spoke from a church on Monday, he said that his administration would set up a police oversight board in the first 100 days, which would be used in part to re-evaluate how officers are trained to deal with people.

“There are a lot of different things that can change” about police training, Biden said as he came up with a hypothetical about what cops should do while arresting a man.

Every time Joe Biden speaks on firearms–remember he wanted to ban magazines that hold more than one bullet–he shows us his ignorance on this subject.

Gun control and the Democrats destruction of wildlife conservation

 

 

What Progressives and Democratic Presidential candidates in particular are not aware is that the bulk of wildlife conservation funding comes from the sale of firearms and ammunition in the form of an excise tax.  Add to that the sale of hunting licenses as a revenue producer. Here we go:

Almost $1 billion each year goes to state wildlife and natural resource agencies courtesy of checks written by firearms, ammunition, and related manufacturers. It is the result of an 11 percent excise tax on firearms, ammunition, and related goods known as Pittman-Robertson, or the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937.

The act was originally proposed by the firearms industry and supported by conservation groups like the National Wildlife Federation. It was bipartisan. It allowed states to marshal resources needed to recover dwindling populations of animals like white tail deer, elk, turkeys, and others. Because much of the success benefited hunters, there is a false assumption: they “pay the bill” in generating the tax. While it was mostly true in 1937, now it’s mostly not.

…What they don’t understand are the demographics of today’s gun ownership. Even as hunting‘s popularity is slowly declining, sport and practical shooting are way up. By sheer numbers, more people in America are shooting now than ever, although less are hunting.

Even more telling, half of all firearms purchased are handguns. These are primarily semiautomatics, also identified as “assault weapons” in misguided legislation. Ammunition purchased to use in these guns lines up in similar fashion.

New Zealand buys back 10,000 ‘banned’ guns first month

 

This is what a knee-jerk reaction will get you to a shooting. A similar effort is working our way. You know the drill. You will read and hear “Assault Rifles” but that is the classic fake news. It is and will be most semi-automatics. They don’t even know the difference.

Following attacks on two Christchurch mosques, New Zealand’s parliament voted overwhelmingly to ban most semi-automatic weapons along with certain kinds of ammunition and large-capacity magazines.

Yes the dreaded semi-automatic. Ask any of our Presidential candidates the same question now, and I would guess few could answer what a semi is.

In simplest terms, “semi-automatic” refers to any firearm designed to fire one bullet with one trigger squeeze, then automatically reload the chamber with a cartridge from a magazine and be ready to fire again.

The term applies to a whole range of modern firearms, from hunting and target rifles all the way up to so-called black rifles that look like what a soldier would carry. Gun control arguments often focus on the black rifles, but the differences between those and any other semi-automatic rifle often are only cosmetic. Semi-automatic guns all largely operate the same way. These guns are commonly owned and include hunting rifles. Many handguns are similar.

More than 10,000 firearms were purchased by the New Zealand government in the first month of a “no questions asked” plan to buy back newly banned weapons, TheGuardian reports. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern pushed through legislation that banned military and semi-automatic weapons after an Australian white supremacist killed 51 people in Christchurch mosques earlier this year.

Snip…

There are between 1.2 and 1.5 million now-prohibited weapons in New Zealand, according to some estimates. Gun owners have until Dec. 20 to sell back or hand in their weapons or face jail sentences of between two to five years.

Considering the current population of New Zealand is about 4,791,634 last I checked, I would say New Zealand is quickly joining it’s neighbor Australia which has banned most guns.

Australia rolled out the National Firearms Agreement, which banned the possession of automatic and semiautomatic firearms in all but “exceptional circumstances.” About 640,000 guns were surrendered through a gun buyback program and another 60,000 were turned in to authorities for free in 1996 and 1997.

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.

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.

Australians give up 51,000 illegal firearms as 3-month amnesty ends

See how easy how the medicine goes down? You and I know the drill, I don’t have to sell you. But it is good to know how the few Democracies around the world are handling this gun thing. Would Trump please tell the Aussies not to count on us next time the Japanese come knocking on their door step?

Australians turned in 51,000 illegal firearms, ranging from 19th-century weapons to a rocket launcher, during a three-month amnesty that ended on Friday, Reuters reported. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the move had helped avert Las Vegas-style mass shootings. The cache represents about a fifth of illegal firearms and will be destroyed. It was Australia’s second amnesty since its worst-ever massacre, when a lone gunman killed 35 people in the island state of Tasmania in 1996. Those who still own such guns face jail time, and the government is pushing for harsher penalties for gun traffickers. H/T:  RT

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.

Obama places ammo ban on Federal lands on last day.

Just a little something as Obama walks out the door. Thought that we were done with this nonsense from this administration, but should have figured one more kick.

The Washington Beacon reports:

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe, an Obama appointee, ordered a new ammunition ban for certain federal lands on Thursday–his last full day in office.

The ban, which took effect immediately, eliminates the use of lead-based ammunition on federal lands like national parks and wildlife refuges, as well as any other land administered by the Fish and Wildlife Service. The ban is expected to have a major impact on much of the hunting that takes place on federal lands across the United States as lead-based ammunition is widely legal and used throughout the country.

Ashe said the order was necessary to protect wildlife from exposure to lead.

Gun rights activists expressed outrage at the last-minute move, labeling it political. The National Shooting Sports Foundation called for the agency’s next director to immediately rescind the order.

Let us go down a bit of memory lane and what our government is doing. Earlier post:
