As if the latest mess from Rep Beyer trying to increase the excise tax on guns weren’t enough, House Dems target 40 specific firearms in the new Assault Weapons Ban set to be taken up in the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, July 20. On top of it, Commiefornia, er, California recently passed a bill designed to bankrupt firearms manufacturers – they can now be sued in the state. Never mind Federal law, nobody cares about that anyway (sarcasm).
Story continues below:
UPDATE: the House Judiciary Committee voted 25-18 to move HR 1808 forward on July 20. No date for the full house vote has been set.
The bill set to be “marked up”on July 20 is HR 1808- The Assault Weapons Ban of 2021. It has 212 co-sponsors so far, all Democrats.
The bill summary states:
“This bill makes it a crime to knowingly import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess a semiautomatic assault weapon (SAW) or large capacity ammunition feeding device (LCAFD).
The prohibition does not apply to a firearm that is (1) manually operated by bolt, pump, lever, or slide action; (2) permanently inoperable; (3) an antique; or (4) a rifle or shotgun specifically identified by make and model.
The bill also exempts from the prohibition the following, with respect to a SAW or LCAFD:
__importation, sale, manufacture, transfer, or possession related to certain law enforcement efforts, or authorized tests or experiments;
__importation, sale, transfer, or possession related to securing nuclear materials; and
__possession by a retired law enforcement officer.
The bill permits continued possession, sale, or transfer of a grandfathered SAW, which must be securely stored. A licensed gun dealer must conduct a background check prior to the sale or transfer of a grandfathered SAW between private parties.
The bill permits continued possession of, but prohibits sale or transfer of, a grandfathered LCAFD.
Newly manufactured LCAFDs must display serial number identification. Newly manufactured SAWs and LCAFDs must display the date of manufacture.
The bill also allows a state or local government to use Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program funds to compensate individuals who surrender a SAW or LCAFD under a buy-back program.”HR 1808
They apparently have no idea how many semiautomatic weapons are actually out there, even with just banning new ones.
David Cicilline is the author of the new Assault Weapons Ban. SAW, by the way, doesn’t mean the same thing to the military that it does to Democrats. A Squad Automatic Weapon, or SAW, is not a semiautomatic weapon, and their use of the term in this bill is ridiculous. They and the media continually talk about “fully automatic weapons of war” with no knowledge of the difference. It’s a propaganda tactic.
The bill allows importation, sale, transfer, or possession of a semiautomatic weapon if the party is engaged in “securing nuclear materials”….WTH is THAT about?
The bill includes 40 different AR-style rifles such as Bushmaster ACR, Bushmaster Carbon 15, Bushmaster MOE series, Bushmaster XM15, Chiappa Firearms MFour rifles, Colt Match Target rifles, CORE Rifle Systems CORE15 rifles, Daniel Defense M4A1 rifles, Devil Dog Arms 15 Series rifles, Sig Sauer SIG516 rifles and MCX rifles, Mossberg MMR Tactical rifles and many others. It also bans AR-style pistols such as DoubleStar Corporation AR pistol, DPMS AR–15 pistol, Jesse James Nomad AR–15 pistol, Olympic Arms AR–15 pistol, Osprey Armament MK–18 pistol, POF USA AR pistols, Rock River Arms LAR 15 pistol, and others. It also bans AK-style weapons, barrel shrouds, and the inevitable large-capacity magazines.
And then has the audacity to say that gun owners who turn in their guns (fat chance on that) will be compensated. Tht’s akin to butterflies and unicorn dreams. But it very well could start a bloodbath.
As always, the Democrats are actually targeting ordinary, law-abiding gun owners, not the criminals. They are not targeting the mental problems that have fed the recent mass shootings. We’ve written articles about what the Democrats may be planning for the midterms. We’ve sounded the alarm over many of their Marxist/Communist plans. This is a direct assault on a Constiutional right. One commenter on an article in The Epoch Times wrote:
“The only reason they want to disarm us is because they are about to do something you would shoot them for.”Article comment (Dianna)
She has a point.
