Oppressive “Gun Control” Agenda Unveiled

We have been warned, we have been watching, and now we get a glimpse of the ban, registration, and confiscation plan that anti-gun politicians are moving toward.

Hopefully this doesn’t get any traction and our representatives won’t give this list of infringements the time of day, but we must remain aware of what the opposition has in mind.  Senator Diane Feinstein has already admitted she wants complete confiscation, but in the meantime this is her current wish list she has proposed:

  • Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
    • 120 specifically-named firearms [no list shown, perhaps the list from bill H.R. 1022?]
    • Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic
    • Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds
  • Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
    • Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test
    • Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test
    • Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans
  • Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
  • Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, [same restrictive regulations as owning a machine gun since 1934] to include:
    • Background check of owner and any transferee;
    • Type and serial number of the firearm;
    • Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
    • Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
    • Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

In essence this is a total ban of all self loading firearms that have been around for over 100 years.  It might be sly enough to not force a revolution.  The “grandfathering” clause demands complete registration and approval that is required as ownership of a pre-1986 machine gun.  This is not “reasonable” in the least.  But what do you expect from an anti-gun extremist who also declares:

“If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them . . . Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.”[24] (Feinstein said on CBS-TV’s 60 Minutes, February 5, 1995)

The choice should be clear for gun owners- do not compromise an inch.  Gun owners, firearms manufactures, firearms, or even the NRA is not the least bit responsible for the Newtown massacre, now should we be punished.  This movement is simply using this as an excuse to strip us of our God given right as protected by the Constitution.

Contact your representatives continually until they recognize our freedoms and stop attempting to infringe on them.

    Playing devil’s advocate for just a minute here… Who exactly is going to pay for this? I mean, the BATFE gets thousands of NFA applications a month right now and has something like 9-12 people working on those apps. As it is, they take 6-8 months to process the paperwork. Now they propose that those 10 people are going to handle literally MILLIONS of new NFA applications in short order? um, okay. That’s completely reasonable…

    • Excellent point! So IF this was to pass, maybe with a 6-12 month grace period, we would probably all be felons when our paperwork didn’t come through in time right? We just need to make sure that NOTHING gets passed limiting our gun rights because of one yahoo bent on murder.

    That is exactly the point… 1- they get to charge us an outrageous fee per firearm. 2- they would get a complete list of who has what and where, 3- they can more us down in layers upon layers of red tape bullshit….

    So, Diane, once you’ve seized all of the guns, how long will it take you to get the ovens in the death camps up and running?

    Greetings,

    Due to the recent events at Sandy Hook elementary school we now face renewed threats to our Constitutional rights. While I understand how painful the loss must be for those touched by this tragedy, blaming firearms or their owners and punishing them is not the answer to the challenges we face as a nation.

    We already have laws that were violated by a man who was likely psychotic and heavily medicated. This man was stopped by the mandatory background check from purchasing firearms. He then decided to murder his mother and take her legally owned firearms to commit this tragedy.

    If your true goal is to protect our children, then enact legislation that will do that. Banning firearms that are rarely used in crime (less than 1% of the time) is not going to stop such tragedies, that was proven in 1999 when the Columbine shooting took place under the 1994 ban. Do something meaningful, please. Make committing the insane easier. Put armed security guards in our schools. But do not strip us of our rights and property by passing additional anti-gun laws that have historically had no positive effect on crime in our nation or others.

    Thank you.

    Dustin, you stated the most important thing there is. Contact your reps and media outlets “continually”. I sent emails and saved the drafts for printing out for snail mail. Also, sent drafts to friends around the country to modify for there own use. Called there offices and left messages and will keep calling every week.Bought 2 more NRA memberships for others. 25$ each at guntalk.com and shootingusa.com. But have to emphasize to your gun owning friends that we can’t have any bench warmers on this one. They all have to pull there weight.
