House Introduces ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban, 10-Day Waiting Period, NFA Requirement for Rifles

U.S. House Representatives introduced over the weekend their take on the new-and-improved “assault weapons” ban, and while the text of the legislation has yet to be released, preening gun-ban proponents like Colorado congresswoman Diana DeGette have outlined the new restrictions on their official government websites.

The Assault Weapons Ban of 2019 (H.R.1296) echoes similar legislation introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein and others in the Senate, but unlike in the upper chamber, the House bill has a good chance of passing.

“With Democrats once again in control of the House, now is the time to enact commonsense gun safety legislation,” DeGette said. “We can’t allow what happened in Aurora, or Columbine, or Parkland, or Newtown, or Las Vegas, to ever happen again. We need to get these assault weapons off of our streets and we need to do it now.”

“I do believe, because in this Congress…there is bipartisan legislation to have common sense background checks to prevent guns going into the wrong hands. It doesn’t cover everything, but it will save many lives,” Pelosi said on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time.”

“This will be a priority for us going into the next Congress,” she added.

Tellingly subtitled “to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited,” HR 1296 names 205 specific makes and models of firearms that could no longer be legally sold, transferred, produced, or imported. Along with this list, the legislation also bans

  • Semi-automatic rifles and pistols with a military-style feature that can accept a detachable magazine;
  • Semi-automatic rifles with a fixed magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds;
  • Semi-automatic shotguns with a military-style feature;
  • Any ammunition feeding device that can hold more than 10 rounds.

A revival of the 1994 Clinton “assault weapons” ban has been a holy grail of the gun control lobby since the original ban expired in 2004. Despite the fact that the 1994 ban resulted in no discernable drop in crime or mass murders, proponents believe a more restrictive set of regulations can decrease the frequency of incidents like Parkland and Las Vegas.

DeGette, for example, claims in her press release that in the 10 years after the 1994 ban expired, mass murders increased by 183 percent. Unfortunately for DeGette and others, Politifact rates this claim “Mostly False” and points out that it’s based on “flawed analysis.”

But wait, there’s more!

House Democrats won’t be satisfied with an “assault weapons” ban, however.

Another bill, H.R. 1112, takes a page from the New York gun control playbook by removing the “default to proceed” practice for delayed federal background checks.

Under current law, a gun dealer can transfer a firearm to a buyer if the FBI has not made a background check determination after three business days. H.R. 1112 increases that waiting period to 10 days, but then would require the purchaser to file a “petition” with the FBI. A gun dealer could only transfer the firearm after waiting an additional 10 days after the petition has been filed, which would increase the waiting period from three business days to 20.

SEE ALSO: Gallup: Support For Stricter Gun Control Drops

As we’ve reported, background checks are often delayed unnecessarily due to bureaucratic errors. In addition, the FBI has instituted no appeals process for delayed checks and all NICS checks expire after 30 days. In short, H.R. 1112 could unjustly suspend the Second Amendment rights of American citizens for an indefinite period of time.

Other bills would place rifle-caliber pistols and semi-automatic rifles with detachable magazines under the National Firearms Act. Both policies would require prospective buyers to undergo an extensive background check and pay a $200 tax stamp before taking ownership.

In all, anti-gun politicians in Congress have proposed 20 pieces of gun control legislation. Stay tuned as we continue to track these bills as they wend their way through the legislative process.

    History repeats itself. This is the harbinger to registration folowed by confiscation. EXACTLY the same tactics per Nazi, communist and socialistic regimes. Take a good look at knfe crime and the U.K. I don’t think we wanna go down that rabbit hole. And yes we are reaching critical mass for a civil war.

    IMO, some gun owners and the idiots who want these bans, cant see the forest because of the trees. This is nothing more than another step in moving toward complete socialism. I never thought I would see this kind movement in my lifetime. My grand kids lifetime, but never mine. Its a shame. A complete shame

    Sou ds like another grab at the law abiding citizen guns. When will the idiots in washington realize that no matter what the criminals will get guns other ways if they want. And guns wont stop murders cause there are more ways than guns to kill people

  • Erwin Lang February 24, 2019, 2:41 pm

    These are incremental steps ultimately ending in confiscation. Democrats are following their historic ties to socialistic ideology. Don’t trust anything they propose when it comes to your right to bear arms. In fact, don’t trust them with much of anything.

    Anybody know who we contact to file a complaint for Treason? Whoever sponsors or votes for this will be committing HIGH TREASON! They should all be swiftly be removed from office, arrested, tried,convicted and punished according to the constitution! We need to get a definitive ruling on THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED! I’m just an auto mechanic, and I know that it means government is supposed to not impair my right to have whatever weapons I choose to have. If they don’t like it, they need to fucking get out of AMERICA, and go to some place that fits their control freak idiot minds.

  • Luis Bonilla February 23, 2019, 1:41 pm

    It’s very clear that the Democrat’s want to hand over America to either N. Korea or the Russians or even Iran. America is an open country to anyone with the intent to invade , if Democrat’s take or right under the constitution 2 Amendment .
    Pelosi is only trying to make a name for herself , and all her democrat cronies as well .
    They all pitch a good round of words . But there intent is re-election and making a name in history.
    History will only write down how they gave America to the enemies .

  • randy February 23, 2019, 12:24 pm

    A good old fashion tax revolt. Stop paying for more of your rights to be stripped away day after day. The governments biggest fear isn’t an armed revolution it’s a non-violent tax revolt.

  • Doug February 23, 2019, 10:29 am

    I know this is just conspiracy talk on my part, but sometimes I wonder if gun manufacturers actually encourage this kind of behavior from the Dems?
    I’m guessing that there nothing like good ‘ol proposed gun control legislation to spur sales through the roof.
    I’ve had more than a few gun dealers tell me that Trump has been terrible for business, while with Obama they couldn’t keep stuff on the shelves (anyone remember the .22 ammo fiasco?)

  • Perry February 23, 2019, 9:58 am

    They’re not “assault weapons”, they’re “Freedom Seed Dispensers”

  • Bud February 23, 2019, 12:57 am

    Food for thought, why not let states that vote Democrat, become gun free. Any Republican, that wants to band guns, can move to one of those states!
    Other states will follow the constitution, and have weapons of choice!
    All of my military brothers and sisters need to remember the Oath we took to our country! It, seems that Democratis are trying hard to fall under the Domestic part of that Oath!

  • MASTERMECH48 February 22, 2019, 11:25 pm

  • E T Gwynn February 22, 2019, 9:38 pm

    As always the carpenter looks for a nail to swat. The bald truth is that no one can control anyone else and laws, especially stupid ones, cannot either.
    The futility of attempting to control people is most evident in penitentiaries where the “control” is constant and ineffective.
    To those who would control others activity always seems like action.

    • Rick Myers February 27, 2019, 3:31 pm

      And anyone that votes for this needs removed from office instantly, taken to the gallows that will be places on the Capitol steps, and publicly hanged for treason. Make an example out of, oh say 6 or so, and the rest will either honor their oaths, or resign and go home. OF the people, BY the people and FOR the people, not in spite of the people. THEY work for us and they need reminded of that.

  • Matt February 22, 2019, 6:59 pm

    How exactly is this going to stop a criminal from getting a firearm exactly? Also for a group that keeps saying “common sense” over and over again they sure are lacking a lot of that.

    • Stuart February 23, 2019, 1:07 am

      They’re not going to get “their way” about guns EVER!

      Since the Constitution obviously doesn’t clarify the self-evident right of self-preservation clear enough for ignoramus demotards, I can assure you the guns eventually will.

  • AJ February 22, 2019, 5:45 pm

  • Barry February 22, 2019, 2:30 pm

    There is no power or authority whatsoever for the government to modify, restrict, or repeal any of the people’s rights in absence of of any commission or conviction of a crime.

    No part of the “Bill of Rights” is subject to repeal.

    There is nothing in the Constitution that authorizes the government or any particular agency to armed or have exclusive use of arms.

    The only provision in the Constitution for anyone to be armed is for “the people”, and the term “Arms” refers specifically to fully functional military grade weaponry. Only the people have the right to own, possess, and use military arms unless they authorize Congress to constitute an army to fight an enemy of the United States or any one of them.

  • Gene Myers February 22, 2019, 2:09 pm

    This kind of talk only sells firearms and ammunition. Every ole’ “redneck” will rush out and buy a gun and/or ammunition “ just in case”, you know ? i’ll buy some more ammo this weekend. Of course, l don’t have a gun !

  • Ronnie February 22, 2019, 2:03 pm

    Looks like those idiots would have learned from the Obama administration that every time they start trying to indorse some new kind of gun control all it does is drives up prices and more new gun production. I hope they waste there time and efforts for all it will do is weaken there run in the 2020 election.
    Can’t fix stupid.

  • Jerry February 22, 2019, 1:30 pm

    Sounds like their ban would include a Remington Mod 522 that my father gave me (at least 50 years old) since it can hold 15 .22 cal rounds of ammo.
    Here’s my response;
    Kiss my ass mad damn speaker!!

  • RIC CARTER February 22, 2019, 1:27 pm

    The politicians are going to piss around and find out what the 2nd Amendment is all about.

  • Jerry February 22, 2019, 1:25 pm

    Dem dummies want open borders, no firearms, allow drug cartels into US and basically turn the United States into Mexico. I read they had 33,000 murders last year(2018).
    I don’t think you could take all victims of mass shootings and get close to the number of murders in Mexico alone.
    I would love to ask Pelosi how many Americans is she willing to sacrifice so she can say she banned weapons in the USA.
    The one reason all those migrants give as the reason for coming to America is fleeing violence. The only difference between the United States and Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico is Americans have the capability to fight crime and they do not.
    We better fight libs or lose that Right!!!

  • Larry Kelley jr February 22, 2019, 1:00 pm

    In the event all this bull crap stuff passes the entire Government and city police all city council shall be totally responsible for each citizen for being injured, stabbed, shot, beaten by any individual the city and state government will be responsible to pay all or any hospital bills Dr bills, any follow up Dr appointments, any loss of wage all insurance bills until citizens have fully recovered

    • OceanDragon February 22, 2019, 3:06 pm

      Not with my tax dollars. You are just as bad as the politicians if you are proposing how to spend my tax dollars. We can’t even get our roads fixed out here so why would you want to use that money to support victims. We already do that for those un-insured victims.

      • Wayne February 22, 2019, 6:14 pm

        I know you are smart enough to understand why he is saying the city, gov., or whoever would be responsible for bills incurred. They take our arms, they are therefore responsible because we couldn’t defend ourselves. What are you doing about your tax dollars going to other countries, paying for programs that support illegals, and the list goes on and on. Short of revolution, all is lost.

        • Tommy February 22, 2019, 8:06 pm

          Revolution may become necessary… we will have a list of primary targets, self identified by their own signatures upon documents calling for the infringement of inalienable rights, usurpation of popular sovereignty, and willfully and knowingly engaging in organized treason and actual rebellion against the United States of America.

      • Sean February 23, 2019, 4:24 am

        A common misconception is that the wage taxes we pay goes to fixing roads but the only money spent on roads is from the tax on gas which is roughly 50%

    • Arch March 21, 2019, 4:56 am

      Courts have decided, numerous times, most recently, in the Parkland event, that police have no specific duty to protect individuals. They may have an “duty” to protect society at large, but that is not enforceable.

  • JR February 22, 2019, 12:33 pm

    It is time for the Supreme Court to place these liberal states and federal courts on notice to stop attempting to take gun rights away from law abiding citizens, many who already have concealed weapons permits that require background checks every 5 years. How many background checks does one have to go through with this constant harassment?

    • jonyrotten February 22, 2019, 6:44 pm

      don’t expect any slam dunks from the supreme court. just as i predicted, now that kavanaugh is on the court, roberts has decided that he must be the “voice of reason” and replace kennedy as the swing vote. only the end of ruth buzzi ginsberg’s seat will make things all better

  • Grant Stevens February 22, 2019, 12:31 pm

    America’s first revolution was triggered when the tyrants came for our guns and ammunition. By violating their oaths of office with tyrannical legislation that infringes upon our unalienable right to keep and bear arms, their laws against our Constitution and Bill of Rights are null and void. “Shall not be infringed” means just what it says. Any laws, court rulings, executive orders or bureaucratic regulations that infringe upon our hard-won Second Amendment are pure tyranny. By their actions, the Democrat party has become the anti-American party and the enemy within our gates. And by their inaction, the Republican party has placed the onus of defending the Constitution of the United States on the shoulders of we the people. The tree of American liberty is in dire need of refreshing.

  • Clint W. February 22, 2019, 12:27 pm

    Folks, it is 1938, Goebbels is in charge of propaganda and all the media, they tell the masses how to think and what to do. If you clicked on the DeGette link about what is in the bill, and read the whole article, you will see exactly how misinformation and fear are now delivered. What is most troubling in the comparison of 1936 Germany and 2019 US media, in Germany the media was forced to do Goebbels bidding, now in the US, the media gleefully misinforms, presents false facts, and out right lies to the public of their own free will and bottom line. If and when the inevitable happens to this country, and the Second Amendment is history, next will be the First, and media heads will be on the chopping block, please join in with me, if you are still here, with a ‘We told you so!” Heck, I’ll swing the ax.

  • Beachhawk February 22, 2019, 11:51 am

    I’m not the least bit concerned. This bill stands zero chance of being passed by the Senate and less chance being signed by President Trump and should it get to the U.S. Supreme Court, it will not pass there either. Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the House Democrats can go f*ck themselves.

    • Jeremy February 22, 2019, 2:30 pm

      Beachhawk, I am concerned. When it comes to sport shooting weapons, Didn’t Trump say he was in favor of banning them also? I am “kind of” a Trump fan. But When it comes to new sport shooting weapons laws, I think Trump is siding with the stupid Dems. Hopefully I am wrong. But we shall see. The government cant do anything to help the mentally disabled in the USA when it comes to guns. So the only option according to the crooked politicians is to ban all guns.

Then they just keep hammering on it until it becomes law. They are in this for the long game. I find it interesting that now they’re going after rifles. Is this some sort of new revelation? I believe that the fact of the matter is that those in the Democrat leadership are scared to death that they are the next targets of opportunity. NFA requirements for the purchase of a rifle? KMA!

  • deanbob February 22, 2019, 11:26 am

    Each year in America, firearms are used for defensive purposes between 500,000 and 3 million times. Those aren’t numbers concocted by Second Amendment advocates. That’s according to the federal government’s own Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which in 2012 commenced a review on gun violence at the direction of Barack Obama. He probably didn’t like what they found:

    “Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies… Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year.”

      We don’t have to do the same things they do, but we need to take the streets and show them that we are not going to let it go, no more stepping on our rights that costed so much to those before us, the made this nation the best place to live on Earth and we are so passive that we are going to let them to destroy it.

    Pass all the legislation that trips your trigger, or makes you happy, but if it goes against the 2nd amendment or the Constitution it’s not law, and must be ignored, it is our duty and right to do so. And while you socialist nit wit’s don’t believe in God, as you are atheist, God gives a man the right to defend himself as man sees fit, to do so. The amazing thing is not one of these legislators would have the balls to knock on one’s door to do the taking away of any weapons, they depend on goons to do the work of their evil and treason.

Actually if you go a step further the Demoncrats like full auto weapons because they just machine gun you with anti gun legislation constantly. So again you have spray and pray. Maybe there needs to be a rule that new bills with the same language directed with the same intent can not be constantly reintroduced within a defined period of time?

    Yet, the greatest number of deaths in our country…the greatest holocaust of our time…occurs thousands of times a day in our country, killing defenseless babies who are safe & not hurting anyone, in their mommy’s tummies…not adults who have a chance of defending themselves. The gravity of the irony is unmistakable, when the “left” decries “morality”, yet raging against thing things of God every other second. They need to be forced to state, clearly, from where do they import their moral code. Because if God doesn’t exist, as they purport, nothing matters & they should have no problem w/ Christ & Christ-followers. Alternately, the silence of “conservatives” & the “second amendment” crowd, not pointing to God for their “pro-life” or “pro-gun” or “pro-family” stances, & leaving Him out of all their positions in the marketplace of ideas…therefore, not being consistent…is deafening. At least the anti-God crowd in New York & elsewhere is consistent in clearly stating their desire to kill babies & continue in their worship in the religion of Darwinian evolutionary theory…& perpetuate their culture of death.

      Curious, how so many people cry about government intrusion in their lives when it’s something they disagree with; but are perfectly happy to have that same intrusion into other people’s lives for something they do believe in. You can’t have it both ways. I’d also ask you to actually read your bible regarding what God wants. I don’t believe he ever said anything about abortion being evil, and in fact, there are quite a few old testament passages where he calls for the death of/kills pregnant women, children, fetuses, etc.
      Logic and facts, they are annoying aren’t they?

        To show the Book chapter and verse would help make your point.

      • Anthony Martin February 22, 2019, 2:17 pm

        Scripture also tells us that We choose leaders after our own hearts.
        And we haven’t had a Godly leader in many many years and for that reason we deserve everything that’s happening to us. It’s the way the Almighty Creator uses “his enemies” to punishes us.
        Most gun owners coward to government and would never use their guns when needed it’s just a egotistical conformist slave type mentality, to feel masculine and would never turn their firearms on their true enemy, so why have them?

        I believe The commandment not to kill (murder) would include abortion. Death to all in the old covenant was to rid the earth of particular evil bloodlines. Some apparently lived and are today’s muslims.

  • Jason February 22, 2019, 9:10 am

    I continuously read about someone somewhere trying to enact some new gun legislation. From what I can see, this onslaught will never stop. As gun owners, that means we can never stop standing up to oppose it. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing” – so what can we do? I am always confused as to the most effective method for opposing legislation of this sort. “Writing your representative” never feels effective, as you almost never get any feedback, and my representative is outnumbered in the house anyway. There needs to be a simple, effective way for the silent majority to outweigh the incessant cries of the obnoxious minority. Does anyone have ideas on what to do? We need to organize and get it done as opposed to complaining about it in blogs and comments.

    • Mike Bolton February 22, 2019, 10:37 am

      Our votes dont count, our “representatives” dont give 2 shits about anything but themselves.
      The time has come and gone for negotiations. Ive come to realize if Im always on the losing side then am I even being given a choice? Im being imposed upon. More rules, more taxes, more, more, more… its never enough, and thats why Americans cant make any headway anymore.
      We need a coup, or a civil war. And here in Wa State… Im surrounded now by liberal weirdo, and illegals, by the 10s of thousands… as far as Im concerned drop an A bomb.

      • Phil February 22, 2019, 1:26 pm

    • Larry Kelley jr February 22, 2019, 1:31 pm

      Then the next best thing is go directly to your legislator but this still does no good. People have went day after day to confront legislators and was told to set up a meeting in writing. You then sign a book right there in the office just to comeback and asked to do the same thing the next day.
      Then after over a week of doing this day after day then wait over a month to still not get a meeting.
      Then you get a group of people together to go confront them just to be told all over again by there secretaries to resign the same book again to try and get a new meeting and still after 3 months and never get a meeting period.
      Just like what happened when over 30 people tried to meet with Nancy Pelosi about how she is all for illegal immigrants and not for American Citizens.
      All these people went there with a picture of a Loved one that had came here to America illegally and had killed the loved one.
      And in 29 of the 30 people that were killed one did actual illegal did jail time 45 days in jail then sent back to there country just to sneak back into the USA and get sent back over 5 different times.
      So in reality it does no good to try to write or go directly to these non law abiding idiots.
      And who can a individual or group of people go to to have these law breaking non believers of there oath breaking and constitution breaking arrested.
      No one has the balls to listen to a law abiding citizen to arrest any of the hypocrites

  • Riverwolf February 22, 2019, 8:58 am

    NFA is Unconstitutional. Everyone knows it and it has never been properly challenged. A challenge to it is now before the Supreme Court, mostly challenging Supressors. The challenge is being brought by the Gun Owners of America. All the bills mentioned above are also Unconstitutional. The Socialists will pass whatever they can get away with to erode our rights, all the while claiming the moral high ground, while in reality only seeking power and plunder of the American People. Please contribute to any group that challenges them in the courts. This is where they are most successful, and the only true way to defeat them. Forget donating to any Political party.

  • Thomas Jefferson February 22, 2019, 8:47 am

    Every single one of these would-be potentate (dictators) communists should immediately be indicted, arrested, tried, convicted and HUNG for their treason. They raise their right hands, swear an oath to UPHOLD AND DEFEND the CONSTITUTION for these united States and IMMEDIATELY do their best to subvert and undermine the Constitution at every turn. You can call them Progressives, Democrats, Socialists, Democratic Socialists, or whatever. What it boils down to is they are USEFUL IDIOT SHILL C-O-M-M-U-N-I-S-T-S. Remember, we the founding fathers expounded upon your GOD-GIVEN, UNALIENABLE, INHERENT and NATURAL Rights so that it would be crystal clear, to even the most dense-minded moron, that these rights are PRECEDENT of any government, and that they are HANDS-OFF to any government and it’s minions. The 2nd Amendment is the LIBERTY TEETH for all other amendments. “From time to time the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots.” I feel the tree of liberty is getting very close to needing a good watering.

      Ugh, get your facts right Thomas Jefferson. You and your buddies wrote the procedure for repealing an amendment into the constitution. It can be done if proposed by 2/3 of the house and senate or a constitutional convention where it’s ratified by 3/4 of the states.

      That’s how we got the 18th amendment (prohibition) and also how it was repealed.

      The 2nd amendment will probably never be repealed but your bs is preaching to the choir. We can’t rely on saying it’s inalienable and hoping for the best. We must be ever vigilant and continue to engage in politics. You can’t opt out of politics. You either play or you get played.

  • ArturS February 22, 2019, 8:42 am

    In 2014 in Ukraine, dictator Yanukovych, a puppet of a communist and terrorist Putin captured most of the seats in Parliament and adopted dictatorial laws, including prohibiting weapons and any parts of it. After that, the communists captured three states and killed thousands of unarmed people. The police gave their weapons to the terrorists of Putin. American accomplices of terrorists want to seize America, take it from the Americans. Never vote for Democrats, they are enemies of Americans!

  • DHernandez February 22, 2019, 8:36 am

    So the dem platform is to release convicted felons from prison early, allow illegal immigration, legalize drugs and, oh ya, restrict gun ownership to law abiding citizens denying them the right to defend themselves against the scourge they create? Wow…

      There are AR 15 pistols that are in many rifle calibers. Also Tomson Center has lots of single shot pistols in rifle calibers.

    • Gamebred February 22, 2019, 9:44 am

      With the advent of “pistol braces”, lots of rifle platforms can be converted to pistols and effectively employed with the pistol brace. A 7.62×39 with a 12 inch barrel makes a crappy pistol. Throw on a pistol brace, though, and it’s now an effective firearm.

      They’re very popular now and gaining in popularity . . . and rightfully so.

  • Mike February 22, 2019, 7:31 am

    It’s too bad they don’t put half the amount of energy into going after felons, enforcing the current laws and doing the job they were hired to do rather than protecting the criminals so called rights. Slap on the wrist for crimes, if any punishment at all. Plea bargaining down, early release for felons, only to re-enter the crime market. One doesn’t have to look far, examples are in this news letter, on how the law abiding citizens use firearms responsibly. To the democraps, it doesn’t matter. They won’t stop their agenda until the second amendment is totally gone and just exists in history books. Then what will they go after?

    Guys, remember these are democraps…what is good for them doesn’t apply to us. You can dam well be sure their body guards will be armed to the max, whereas you and I, well, it doesn’t matter to them. Being attacked, well sit down and pray uniti help arrives…..

    The Democrats in Congress know full well that their proposed laws have no application to criminals, but disarm only the law-abiding. That is their intent, not crime control.

  • Jaque February 20, 2019, 3:10 pm

    The idea that the Right to Bear Arms is not unlimited may have basis and limits the arms available to civilians to the Small Arms category or Arms that can be carried by one man.

    But to limit legal small arms as the communists have proposed is a complete violation of the Second Amendment limitations placed upon the government. At minimum civilians must have the right to possess small arms of the same type and capacity as federal soldiers carry. That means full auto small arms also.

    Considering that the Second Amendment was put in effect to give the citizens of the US Republic the Arms needed to defeat and change a government no longer for, of, and by the people then all gun control laws and future legislation banning small arms are illegal. Yes illegal.

    The founders insured the people would have the arms necessary to fight a government of Tyranny and prevented said government from banning and taking the small arms of the people.

    Will the Second Amendment right to bear arms be tested in the Supreme Court or on the battlefields, in the cities, and in our neighborhoods ? My guess is it will not be decided in the Supreme Court.

      Thank you! Finally someone read the 2A and actually understood it. I 100% agree that it was written in a way to allow us the availability of the same firearms our government military uses and it was intended to do so for a purpose. That purpose being to allow the free people of America to fight against a tyrant government. I believe that time is coming soon.

      • Nick T February 22, 2019, 10:16 am

        If you removed the 2nd today, it would have no effect on the Law of the Land since our rights come from a higher source than government; our humanity.
        The issue is not a 2nd. The 2nd is just a very small part of the Duty to Keep and Bear Arms. Article 1, § 8, Cls. 15 & 16 recognize the existing State statutes defining the mandatory Militia, its structure and authority. Note that Militia is the only constitutionally recognized authority “to execute the Laws of the Union”.
        The problem we face is years of misinformation, and lack of education. The supposed pro-2nd community refuses to educate themselves as to the law concerning this subject. No matter how you explain it, or parse it the pro-2nd community will insist that militia is now the National Guard, or the State is ultimately in complete control, or it is some voluntary group, or it is some fictitious unorganized group, or any other excuse so that no one will actually participate or train in accordance with “the discipline prescribed by Congress”.
        Jaque believes it will be decided on the battlefields of our cities. How will that happen if we did nothing for the last ban, or nothing is being done for the States that are falling one by one?
        Who of you are willing to go out into the streets with no training or coordination? How long do you think you will last? Are you going to step out and just start shooting?
        The answer is to start fighting the proper legal battle so that the legislatures across the country know that we really mean business, and if they fail to recognize, and revitalize the Constitutional Militia, we will do so.

  • Mike V February 20, 2019, 12:32 pm
