A Gun Ban Will Have Unintended Consequences
Step right up! Get your tickets here!
See what history will remember as the opening salvo in the second Civil War of the United States of America.
The actions of Congress during the next several months will determine how history will remember the politicians and elitists who call for registration and confiscation of firearms in America.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein in her recent submission to Congress requires that legally possessed weapons, heretofore completely legal, now be registered with the federal government under the national firearms act, identical to fully automatic machine guns and other “heavy weapons”.
One must only look back a scant few decades to see the results of unconstitutional and unlawful registrations, which always lead to confiscation.
Feinstein’s bill will treat tens of millions of American citizens as arch criminals with strict requirements to possess or transfer any ‘classified’ weapon. A partial list of her stated requirements are:
- A background check of every existing owner and any transferee;
- Identification including photographs, type and serial number of each individual firearm for positive identification, of the weapon;
- Photographs and fingerprints of the owner;
- Individual certification from local law enforcement of the identity of the owner, and a statement that their possession does not violate state or local laws;
- Additional dedicated funding for the ATF to implement the registration.
Additionally, it will ban the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacture of: 120 specifically-named firearms. It also bans certain semiautomatic rifles, and guns, and shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have at least one military characteristic.
Also banned, and subject to registration, are all semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.
Her bill also provides for even more draconian assault weapon tests by: moving from the 1994 two characteristic test to a one characteristic test such as a pistol grip, or collapsible stock, or other such element. It also eliminates the bayonet mount and flash suppressors from the characteristic tests, and bans all firearms with thumbhole stocks and bullet buttons to address attempts by manufacturers to work around prior assault weapon bans.
Furthermore it bans any large capacity ammunition feeding device capable of accepting more than 10 rounds. Whether detachable or permanently attached.
This treasonous assault on our Second Amendment which emphatically states “…shall not be infringed”, must not be allowed to pass.
Our Second Amendment was developed with much thought, much argument and much discussion by our founding fathers who were far wiser, and far more motivated to preserve liberty in our Republic than the elitists and statists currently occupying our Congress today.
Passage of this act will effectively turn some 30-40% of law-abiding American citizens into felons overnight.
Take this for what it is intended to be; the final step in a long and historic line of treasonous actions, legislation, and bills passed by a Congress which has long ago lost sight, focus, and direction.
It is abundantly clear that Congress no longer represents the will of “WE THE PEOPLE”. Passage of such a bill will require enforcement by the ATF and other law enforcement agencies that will prohibit and preclude them from attending to real crime and criminalize lawful behavior of up to 100 million Americans.
Should this bill pass, tens of millions of lawful, heretofore law abiding Americans will not capitulate to tyranny. Perhaps this is the long awaited excuse for this alleged President to enact a declaration of martial law. Any ham handed attempt to confiscate will surely leave our streets and fields running with American blood.
If this legislation is to pass it will be the opening salvo in the second American Civil War.
