Ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited and other purposes…
Yes, you read that correctly. It is the purpose of HR 4269, a bill introduced by Democrats in the House on December 16, 2015 to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is NOT unlimited. In other words, Democrats are seeking to rewrite the Constitution by legislation.
HR4269 is so broad in its definition of “assault weapons” that it virtually bans any rifle you may own… as well as numerous shotguns and pistols. It is cosponsored by 123 Democrats. It has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee.
The “shall not be infringed” part of the Second Amendment is being stolen by liberals who have patterned their legislation after Australian gun control.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” 2nd Amendment
These Democrats are planning to infringe it even as we speak.
All AR rifles are banned. All AK rifles are banned. Carbines are banned. You can’t possess a “high capacity magazine” of any kind. And it even bans the parts and pieces needed to make an AR style weapon.
Only single shot, lever, or bolt action rifles are not banned by this legislation. Automatic or semiautomatic rifles and shotguns are banned.
The only exemptions are Federal agents and Law Enforcement. I’m not feeling the love, are you?
They are not against guns, they are against YOU owning guns.
Any weapon that is “grandfathered” under this bill has stringent rules for “transfer” after someone dies. This is more than background checks and licenses, this is out and out confiscation of your rifles and any handguns that are made like them.
Have you ever heard of a mass shooting in a place that has lots of guns? No? They mostly occur in gun free zones.
“Ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is NOT unlimited.” Those words ring loud and clear to those of us who legally own weapons.
And don’t forget the cost of “gun buy-back” programs, which are part of this bill. With around 240 million guns in America, that’s gonna cost some serious money.
Title 18, Section 921, 922
If passed, the ban will go under Title 18, Federal Code 921- 922 – which is the weapons code that has been used viciously against many of our Armed Forces- people such as Clint Lorance, the Raven 23 Four, and many others, to include civilians working along the US-Mexico border.
Often the Feds have twisted that code to make it work for them, in spite of the fact that it was never designed for use against our military or State Department contractors. Passage of this bill would give the federal government license to go after anyone.
Pulling it out by the roots
Here’s a real kicker: if the Supreme Court should strike down any part of this ban, the rest of the ban will remain in effect. In other words, the SCOTUS would have to undo the ENTIRE code section 922 in order to get rid of this. Basically, that means you’ll have to pull the whole root of the tooth out, not just fill it.
“If any provision of this Act, an amendment made by this Act, or the application of such provision or amendment to any person or circumstance is held to be unconstitutional, the remainder of this Act, the amendments made by this Act, and the application of such provision or amendment to any person or circumstance shall not be affected thereby.”
Once again, call your representatives and urge them to vote against this bill. If you are unlucky enough to have Democrats or RINOs as your leaders, start a letter campaign and keep it up. Push HARD.
Remind them they are subject to the votes of the people. Remind them who is boss. If they send you a ridiculous form letter spouting liberal garbage, remind them that you are in charge and can remove them from office.
YOU HAVE THE POWER – use it! Now more than ever our right to keep and bear arms is at stake.
