Major Federal Gun Ban Gains Bicameral Backing

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Back in November, Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM) introduced the GOSAFE Act.

Officially known as the Gas-Operated Semi-Automatic Firearms Exclusion Act, it proposes a sweeping ban on semi-automatic rifles that accept detachable magazines.

Yes, it seeks to put all AR and AK platforms on the chopping block. It also aims to outlaw magazines with a capacity over 10 rounds.

This week, Rep. Lucky McBath (D-GA) brought it to the House for consideration.

“I’m thrilled that my GOSAFE Act has been introduced in the House by Congresswoman Lucy McBath— a fierce advocate and leader in the fight to tackle gun violence,” said Heinrich in a press release obtained by GunsAmerica.

“I firmly believe we must uphold the laws that protect safe and responsible gun ownership. This legislation accomplishes that, while preventing firearms that are inherently dangerous and unusually lethal, designed for maximum harm, from falling into the hands of individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others,” he added.

GOSAFE Act Background (per Heinrich)

The GOSAFE Act focuses on the inherently dangerous and unusually lethal nature of gas-operated semi-automatic weapons, rather than cosmetic features. If enacted, the bill would regulate the sale, transfer, and manufacture of these weapons by:

  • Establishing a list of prohibited firearms.
  • Preventing unlawful modifications of permissible firearms.
  • Mandating that future gas-operated designs are approved before manufacture.
  • Preventing unlawful firearm self-assembly and manufacturing.

Of course, Bloomberg’s minions are applauding the GOSAFE Act’s reemergence.

“As weapons of war have become commonplace in America, so has the unfathomable carnage they wreak on our communities,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety.

“We applaud Representative McBath for introducing innovative legislation that would regulate assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, which are capable of creating devastating destruction in an instant,” Feinblatt continued.

“We urge Representative McBath’s colleagues to pass this bill before yet another community is forever scarred by someone filled with hate and armed with an AR-15,” he concluded.

Heinrich’s press conference from November 2023.

GunsAmerica reached out to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the firearms industry trade association, for comment.

“NSSF flatly rejected this legislation as clearly unconstitutional when Senator Heinrich introduced it last year and does so again with Representative McBath’s bill,” said Mark Oliva, NSSF’s managing director of public affairs.

“This legislation isn’t just unacceptable; it is openly defiant and hostile to the rights guaranteed to law-abiding citizens through the Bill of Rights,” Oliva continued.

Oliva further argues that the proposed GOSAFE Act is unconstitutional because it attempts to ban an entire class of firearms, which the Supreme Court’s Heller decision prohibits.

He highlights the long history and widespread ownership of semiautomatic firearms and standard-capacity magazines in the U.S., maintaining that their common use further invalidates the legality of such a ban under existing Supreme Court standards.

“Today, there are over 28.1 million MSRs in circulation and at least 717.9 million magazines with a capacity exceeding 10 rounds,” Oliva observed.

Indeed. For anyone aiming to reel in firearms that are now a fixture in American life, even ignoring the legal issues, just from a logistical standpoint, they’ve definitely got their work cut out for them.

Safe (forgive the pun) to say, the cat’s outta the bag!

    “What are you willing to do?” Sean Connery asks Kevin Costner in “THE UNTOUCHABLES”………….
    Yes indeed, what are you willing to do????
    “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.” Jefferson, who wrote the Declaration of Independence, did believe in rebellion, and some of his letters convey that sentiment.
    “The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive,” he wrote in 1787. “It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere.”

    But Jefferson never said the far more pithy, “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”

    Blame the NRA, and gun industry. They’re the ones who convinced enough people they had to have MSR’s to sell 28 million of them. (While they laugh thier way to the bank) People in cities and suburbs who think it’s fine to use a 3200fps projectile (that was designed to pierce combat helmets of the time, and inflict through wounds to draw out more solders to aid there screaming friend) for home defense. Then the gun industry comes up with bump stocks, forced reset triggers, binary triggers and wide open triggers for all the Yahoos that further spoiled it for the responsible gun owner. Inventories of everything (mags, ammo) got too insane. It’s insane already that the U.S. has 5% of the world’s population, and 50% of the world’s privately owned firearms. We’ll live just fine getting that number down, even though it will take years, maybe decades.

      I agree that the NRA and gun industry hold some responsibility, but its not for your illogical, and lawfully flawed arguments. Perhaps you should read the Constitution, and understand it in its entirety.
      Article I, Section 8, Clause 15 REQUIRES, at minimum, ALL able bodied men to be fully armed, and capable of ‘executing the Laws of the Union, suppressing Insurrections, and repelling Invasion’. It’s a matter of law that the NRA ignores because if we were to adhere to that commanded by both federal and state law, the gun control issue would be dead. Many of its proponents, Moms Demand Action, behind bars for, at least, sedition, and as I outlined in an article I wrote some years back “A Case Of Treason”.
      The real problem is the lack of knowledge, ambivalence, and greed on the part of those who have a vested interest in promoting the argument instead of winning. As far as the gun industry goes, I have to conclude that they must be under some pressure from government, because I can’t believe that they are so stupid as to ignore the most critical power listed in the Constitution. A power that would greatly expand their business; “that the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. ‘A body of citizens enrolled for military discipline.’ And further, that ordinarily when called for service these men were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time.” U.S. v Miller, 307 U.S. 174
      If we maintained OUR Militia, as REQUIRED by Law, crime on the streets, and in the halls of government would be greatly reduced. Unfortunately, most lack the willingness to maintain liberty and freedom, and others have no intellectual desire to learn from the errors of the past, such as the more than TWO HUNDRED FIFTY MILLION people, (Documented), who were murdered by governments, in genocidal atrocities, in the last Century.

      • Sharon June 9, 2024, 6:58 pm

        Good one, but you missed the subsequent National Defense Act of 1916, where “militia” come under the control of the Federal Government. At that point, the word was redefined to mean those enlisted in the National Guard. And ironically, here is the result of U.S. v Miller: “The Supreme Court reversed the district court, holding that the Second Amendment does not guarantee an individual the right to keep and bear a sawed-off double-barrel shotgun.” Interesting, huh? In the Supreme Court case Heller, Justice Scalia noted: “Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. [It is] not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” We ALL still have our 2A rights.

        • Nicholas June 13, 2024, 12:34 pm

          Let’s start with a fact that permeates up from Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist Paper #78 through court cases. In Norton v Shelby County, 118 US 425, the court said; “An unconstitutional act is not a law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”
          The problems with quoting the National Defense Act of 1916 are numerous. Here are a couple. Foremost, if you read the Dick Act, from which the NDA stems, very carefully, you’ll find that the government attempted to mitigate the fact that the People were refusing to perform their Constitutional Duty to be in the Militia, which has historical and statutory form and function. And as we know, or at least I do, the court states numerous times, we rule by “What *** those who framed and adopted [the Constitution] underst[oo]d [its] terms to designate and include”, “the sense in which [the words were] generally used by those for whom the instrument was intended”, “the common parlance of the times in which the Constitution was written”, and the “accepted meaning [of the words] in that day.”
          Here are those cases:
          Pollack v. Farmers Loan and Trust Company, 157 US 429, 558
          Ogden v. Saunders, 25 U.S. 213, 332
          US v. South-Eastern Underwriters Association, 322 US 533, 539
          Scott v. Sanford, 60 U.S. 393, 418
          The minute changes made in those acts, Dick and Defense, were designed to obfuscate, and diminish the rule of law. What you believe can not be unless the Constitution is amended in at least 3 different places, the Bill of Rights, and also, every state in the Union, which also have their own set of Militia statutes. With the exception of Hawaii.
          Read Miller in its entirety. Justice McREYNOLDS is very clear in what he wrote, and in attempting not to declare the NFA unconstitutional. “In the absence of any evidence tending to show that possession or use of a ‘shotgun having a barrel of less than eighteen inches in length’ at this time has some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia, we cannot say that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear such an instrument.” At the time, short barreled shotguns were not in use anywhere, and there was some complaints arising out of WWI about the use of shotguns, at all, in warfare. They were actually prohibited for a period of time.
          National Guard cannot be Militia as defined in law and history. However, there was no final outcome to Miller as he died prior to the case going any further.
          The National Guard was created under the authority of Congress at Article I, Section 10, Clause 3, which allowed the states to “keep *** Troops of War” in time of peace. Reading, once again from Justice McREYNOLDS opinion of the court, he notes distinction; “set in contrast with Troops which they were forbidden to keep without the consent of Congress.” Congress had no authority, whatsoever, to grant the Guard the status of being Militia. The Guard is an excuse from both sides of the argument.
          The Guard is an adjunct of the Army, and therefore would violate “Posse Comitatus” if we were to completely abandon the Constitutional requirement at Article I, Section 8, Clause 15, and thereby turn over to a “standing army” such power.
          As far as function of Militia, the state statutes outline the requirements of men to be armed with a good rifle, sufficient ammunition, and accoutrements to perform their duties. In colonial times, Militia typically had superior weapons to the Regular army. Militia also had armories from which they could draw weapons such as cannon. There was also Naval Militia, which included ships of war that NY still had in operation as late as the early 1970’s. I’ve been to the armories, and the ships. They were still active when I served.
          I could go on, but what would be the point. Suffice it to say, and I can’t remember who stated that given the choice between liberty and tyranny, the majority will always choose tyranny.

        You gotta be kidding me Nicholas!!! This chipy cricket, Sharon, just walked all over you.

      Now you are using Colion noir’s stats to try and make your points even though you criticized the man and his numbers. Make up you mind.

      Who kills more people around the world, armed private civilians or the military forces?

      Do you have a problem with the CHOMO in the WH, that some people call the POTUS, who abandoned $7.1 billion in U.S.-funded military equipment into fall in the hands of the Taliban who is selling all those arms around the globe?

      Please tell me, what specific rifle and pistol ammunition a ” responsible gun owner” should be using?

      Please explain the Geneva Convention’s position on ammunition “(that was designed to pierce combat helmets of the time, and inflict through wounds to draw out more solders to aid there screaming friend)”?

      • Sharon June 9, 2024, 6:38 pm

        Those stats are accurate, it doesn’t mean all are. For you to be incapable of understanding the logistics of recovering military equipment in the middle of a war is boggling. But since you confirmed that you swallow B.S. propaganda whole (calling Biden a CHOMO), I have as much interest in further engaging you as I would a flat earther waving his arms on a street corner.

        • Kane June 10, 2024, 4:00 pm

          Under the agreement with the Taliban and Trump, Bagram Airport was intended to remain in US control and military equipment could have been shipped out or destroyed from that strategic point. Instead, your fake POTUS (genuine POS) was in a hurry to get the US in a proxy war with Russia and after 20 years he rushed out with a few disasterous drone strikes So while the US (under the fake POUTUS) was pushing for a quick exit through Kabul airport with dangerous Afghans hitching up for the ride. In the confusion, 11 Marines, 1 Army and a Navy Corpsman were killed and an untold number were injured by a terrorist bomb. The surving Marines were ordered by the fake POTUS to clean up the human fecal matter that the thousands of Afghans expelled while wating for days to come to the US. The fake POTUS wanted the Taliban to have a clean airport after all that and he no respect for the members of the military Look it up.

          The shower the old pervert took with his daughter was recorded by Ashley Biden in her diary when she was a young child and is written up in a book Alex Marlow. Where is the suit for libel? The truth is an absolute defense. The FBI confiscated the diary from Project Veritus (sp?) and the charges and lack of charges prove the authenticity of the ownership and all the writing in Ashley’s diary.

[It is] not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.”

        • Beckaroo June 9, 2024, 7:30 pm

As pointed out by the others who responded to your post, you aren’t pro-2A, you’re one of those “I support the 2A but…” people. Your entire first post is filled with nothing but anti-2A propaganda nonsense. If you can’t see that then I don’t know what to tell you. You obviously don’t understand the 2A or why it was enshrined in our constitution.

Quick now, look it up and get back to us, withpossi ly a little self-reflection.

          • Sharon June 9, 2024, 9:57 pm

            Thanks for sharing that. I agree it is a powerful statement about the Germans failure to speak out against the Nazi’s. With my decades of research and having my finger on the pulse of the NRA, gun industry, and “other gun owners”, I’ll try to share why I speak out in the limited space there is here. I’ve watched the fear laden campaigns to drive sales of firearms currently defined as assault weapons for a long time. I also found that many of the people that fall for these fear based tactics, also fall for B.S. propaganda, much of which comes from our foreign adversaries. Google “Foreign disinformation campaigns” if you need to. If your search engine isn’t too compromised, you’ll see that Russia is the biggest player, and has been since “Obama wasn’t born in the U.S.”. And like no doubt Martin Niemoller witnessed over time, the Dictators Playbook began to unfold. But now, Putin’s biggest enemy is democracy, you can’t install a dictator (like Russia did with N. Korea) in a such a nation. So today, it is democrats instead of Jews that are being demonized. Surely even you noticed Trump doing his bidding, by trying to withhold aid to Ukraine and to get us out of NATO? How about their “approved” National news trying to hire Tucker Carlson? Or the whole recent Hunter/Joe attacks based on the GOP in collusion with a Russian spy, Alexander Smirnov? The rest of the playbook, discrediting our institutions and reputable media, claiming things are horrible when they are not, and promoting the one and only man that can save you all from this invented darkness, is oh so obvious.

            Back to subject weapons. The ones that there are such insane inventories of. That there has been the hoarding of mags and ammo for, and coveting of the drop in trigger assemblies that enable a near full auto rate of fire. It wasn’t that long ago that a lone, angry, young man could walk into even a Ma/Pa shop, and out with the weapon, 1/2 dozen 30 round mags, and enough ammo. to fill them twice. It was/is out of control. Those having fits about new laws can’t come close to a rational justification. What, to use against other Americans? Because they work for the government? Who is fighting Putin’s plan to destroy us from within? How about we put that all aside and try a little critical thinking. Lets say “Bubba” claims his right is to own whatever the NRA and gun industry says he can. And he justifies it from defending his home to using it against his vision of enemies, foreign and domestic. (That vision is a BIG problem!) So the weapon can only serve him IF he is home! Does he really think if things get crazy, he’s going to run home and get it, then…leave his home? How do you see it? If he claims it’s only for his home defense, what equally armed people are going to target his home? Targets for such bad actors are homes that are known to have a lot of cash, expensive jewelry, drugs or…what for it…weapons they want. All I know is every other developed country on this planet does not come close to the U.S. in any statistic to do with guns, and they are doing wonderfully. But then, they aren’t at the top of Putin’s list either. All my thoughts, sorry you asked?

    • BR549 June 9, 2024, 11:52 am

      Sorry, Sharon, but you still haven’t managed to grasp the enormity of the situation.

      The issue might be stated as why there is so much gun violence, which distills down to just why do some people need to employ VIOLENCE against another?
      That reduces down to the reasons that people feel the need to lash out laterally within the population to relieve their frustrations.
      That then boils down to addressing why people in power have to continually emasculate the population in order to stay in power/office, whatever.
      That doesn’t even begin to address the elites at the Rockefeller and Rothschild levels and higher, who for centuries have destroyed livelihoods and murdered people (usually by someone else’s hand), to satisfy their gluttony. How can these hypocrites ever pretend to have a religion when they are so disconnected from God?

      Imagine, on the flip side, that there was some kind of incurable virus that only struck greedy tyrants, and that the new leaders truly gave of themselves, part of their fortunes back to people. During the Bush Administration, I remember reading about one shoe manufacturer who refused to fire any of his employees during the recession and chose also to suspend collection of his own salary. Where have we seen that level of selflessness in society today? Stanford Neurobiologist, Robert Sapolsky, who has for decades monitored the stress characteristics of baboons, noticed after returning one year that the viciously abusive alpha males were missing; indeed, that they had hoarded a stash of tainted leftover supplies from some safari group. The gluttony of the two alphas turned out to be their own demise and when Sapolsky started recording the behaviors of the rest of the troop, gone was the aggression on the population that was generated from the top of the ladder. Instead, the rest of the population had gone back to feeding, grooming, and nurturing each other. How do we get to that point?

      Until you address the larger problem, that elephant in the room, all of your suggestions are pointless. Trump turned over part of his salary for part of his time in the WH; at least that was a start. My point is that ……… you will know when humanity has reached that stage of maturity when guns just are no longer needed anymore and might be collecting dust on Grandpa’s mantle or some musty trunk in the basement.

      As long as that upper escelon of Jungle Mentality exists, they will continue to lower the bar for all of humanity within the collective consciousness as to how far mankind can spiritually evolve before our Sun burns out. I would hope it wouldn’t take that long.

    This woman, Lucy McBath, is an Effing Idiot. No gun control is the best policy. She should focus on the criminals and not law abiding citizens. Criminals are not responsible gun owners. They love to give these unconstitutional bills names that sound great like this on – GOSAFE. They should really name is “Stripping your 2nd Amendment Rights”

    McBath states “I firmly believe we must uphold the laws that protect safe and responsible gun ownership. This legislation accomplishes that, while preventing firearms that are inherently dangerous and unusually lethal, designed for maximum harm, from falling into the hands of individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others,”

    What she really is saying “I want to prevent US Citizens from owning semi-automatic firearms. This legislation accomplishes that because I’m targeting responsible gun owners and not focusing on criminals who don’t follow the laws.”

They should be concerned about what’s happening in the world, and need to know that Americans citizens being armed is also a deterrent for other communist countries if shit hits the fan and China try’s to invade its not only the US military they have to fend off it’s the armed citizens and millions of American veterans that will protect these $?&@ing gun grabbers.

    Obama and Hillary favorably mentioned Saul Alinsky as a major influence in their “progressive” political thinking.

In his book Reveille for Radicals he lays out a political agenda for Socialists to overthrow a constitutional republic (like ours) and one of the main precepts, after taking over healthcare (Obamacare) and public education (untouchable leftist teacher unions), is civilian disarmament. This has nothing to do with crime prevention or safety for children. They will never stop trying to circumvent and eliminate 2A rights for all Americans.

  • Nicholas June 7, 2024, 8:48 am

    The 2nd amendment community is not going to be happy until all guns are banned. What’s that you say?
    The purpose of the 2nd, as SCOTUS ruled long ago, was to protect Article I, Section 8, Clauses 15 & 16, which were designated to give
    “We the People” absolute control over the government. However, with the help of the NRA, GOA, and others, the purpose of the
    amendment was downgraded to the impotent “individual right theory”.
    Most gun owners, probably about 99%, want nothing to do with the Militia for a number of reasons. They know little to nothing about it,
    but when they’re educated on the subject, they realize that they would actually have to get out to be organized, armed, and disciplined
    so that they could fulfill the Duty commanded by the Constitution.
    Revitalize the Militia and we can go down and arrest the anti-2nd crowd instead of begging them to stop. The majority will only learn
    when its too late, and we’ve been made surfs to the elite. Look up Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., A.M., A.B., Ph. D., J.D., for an education on
    the subject. He is a life member of the NRA who tried to get them to bring legitimate cases. Pro-2nd organizations have painted
    themselves into a corner. They can’t come out and admit that they’ve been lying, and actually assisting in gun control.

    It appears to me to be a good “starting” point for antis. If you think otherwise, if you think it will not be expanded to all semi autos, then to pump, and lever guns, I have a bridge to sell you.

    These AssHats Need to Read and Understand the Constitution They Swear an Oath to Uphold, and Any Who don’t are Immediately Removed from Office!

    We are now in the home stretch to our destruction as a free people. This is planned. The human condition does not want people to be free. Humans want to control humans. It is power. Humans crave power and authority, it is in their DNA. No matter what the weak and the powerful do, they want to remove your power, your authority over your own person. The weak do not want to be afraid and they think by removing your ability to have power will make them safer. They just do not understand human nature. That is why they are weak.

    To remain safe and free you must project power and authority. You don’t have to be violent, just the ability to project. That is why people are always advised to walk confidently and be aware of their surroundings. Humans do not want to mess with people they are not sure they can defeat. They will always prey upon the weak. It is natures law. That is why there needs to be sheepdogs to protect the flock. Once you take out the sheepdogs, you have access to the entire flock.

    The government, full of psychopaths and sociopaths, are bent on taking away the sheepdogs. The weak are bent on taking away the sheepdogs in the false hope it will make them safe. The only solution, if you want to retain your freedom is to be a sheepdog and not allow the bad and weak guys from neutering you.

      Long live the Sheep Dogs.

    Hmmm – guns do not kill people; people kill people. This piece of legislation is terribly wrong. Criminals will get all the guns while the government castrates the law abiding citizens, Congress should get a reality check; fire arms deaths aren’t even in the top 5+ causes of death in the USA.
    Take away our gun rights will lead to the loss (theft) of our other Constitutional Rights,

    More diatribe from the tyrants. Slipping in the detachable mags outlawing bolt action rifles with such and about 100% of pistols? Of course they would hide that in the misnomer of weapons of war. Which are FULL auto, but details details.

    Heller sys that Bans on firearms, especially an entire class of commonly owned/used firearms, is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. These legislature goons just keep re-naming/re-packaging the same ill conceived bills, calling it something else, with the hope that it gets by.
    So what that there are many of these firearms out there. They are L E G A L, for Christ’s sake. The 2nd Amendment does not restrict any type nor class of firearm and, how is a militia to be ARMED, if NOT with military suitable firearms?
    They think that every firearm owner and 2A supporter is an “insurrectionist” who will “overthrow” the government. Well, if they keep going down this path toward Tyranny and Despotism, they will learn that we only want to RESTORE our Constitutional Republic from their skewed, distorted views.
    The 2A is a RESTRICTION and a PROHIBITION on the government……NOT against the People.

      These weapons of war are too dangerous for American streets, schools, or the US Capitol.

      The relationship between the government and its citizens changed radically and legally in the 1960s, with several acts in short succession like the Voting Rights Act, Gun Control Act, Civil Rights Act – these are sometimes collectively called the Second Constitution. Under the modern legal structure, this is exactly the kind of danger that not only the government can address but should address in modern America.

    The communists/socialists need to be eliminated from society by any means or we won’t have the constitution.
