We knew this was coming, we knew who would be introducing it, they are all the sludge in the sewers of America and they will never stop until they destroy the United States of America.

More than 20 Senate Democrats have introduced a bill banning assault weapons in the wake of yet another mass shooting met by Republicans offering hopes and prayers and opposition to even discussing policy changes.

The Democratic legislation would ban the sale, production and transfer of military-style assault weapons, with some exceptions, though owners would be able to keep existing weapons. It would also ban magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

The bill would require a background check on any future trade or sale of an assault weapon covered by the legislation, require any guns grandfathered under the bill to be securely stored and prohibit transferring high-capacity magazines.

The bill’s sponsors are led by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, (D-CA) who authored the 1994 assault weapons ban that expired in 2004.

Feinstein said in a statement that she introduced the bill so “the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for debate and a vote.” […]

“After each shooting, we’re told it’s not the right time to act. We’re told to respect the victims by sitting on our hands,” Feinstein said. “To those who say now isn’t the time, they’re right — we should have extended the original ban 13 years ago, before hundreds more Americans were murdered with these weapons of war. To my colleagues in Congress, I say do your job.”

That’s a message to voters: The bill is ready, but Republicans are standing in the way and will continue to stand in the way as long as they have that power. If you want a ban on weapons that are designed solely to efficiently kill large numbers of people, you’re going to need to elect some more Democrats.

Key Provisions that will effect Firearm owners:

  • Bans the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name. Owners may keep existing weapons.
  • Bans any assault weapon that accepts a detachable ammunition magazine and has one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock. Owners may keep existing weapons.
  • Bans magazines and other ammunition feeding devices that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, which allow shooters to quickly fire many rounds without needing to reload. Owners may keep existing magazines.

Senator Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement:

“We’re introducing an updated Assault Weapons Ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for debate and a vote.

“This bill won’t stop every mass shooting, but it will begin removing these weapons of war from our streets. The first Assault Weapons Ban was just starting to show an effect when the NRA stymied its reauthorization in 2004. Yes, it will be a long process to reduce the massive supply of these assault weapons in our country, but we’ve got to start somewhere.

“To those who say now isn’t the time, they’re right—we should have extended the original ban 13 years ago, before hundreds more Americans were murdered with these weapons of war. To my colleagues in Congress, I say do your job.

Other provisions:

  • Requires a background check on any future sale, trade or gifting of an assault weapon covered by the bill.
  • Requires that grandfathered assault weapons are stored using a secure gun storage or safety device like a trigger lock.
  • Prohibits the transfer of high-capacity ammunition magazines.
  • Bans bump-fire stocks and other devices that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire at fully automatic rates.

These meat-puppets are insane and are completely ignorant to the 2nd Amendment:

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. ~ The 2nd Amendment, as ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, then-Secretary of State

James Madison, often referred to as “The Father of the Constitution,” said “that in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers, not granted” by the Constitution, the states not only have a right, but are “duty bound to interpose for arresting the progress of the evil.”

And in Federalist #46, he advised a “refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union” as a method to stop unwanted or unconstitutional federal acts.

Criminals do not care about LAWS and BANS, they will obtain whatever they want by any means they see fit.  These idiots will never understand that, they truly believe it will keep firearms out of criminals hands.

As tragic as the Texas Church shooting was, it was a good man with a firearm that put an end to the criminals killing spree.

If I could send a single message to Feinstein and her flock of evil Democrat dumbasses, it would be this:

“Listen up Soros puppets, AR does not stand for Assault Rifle, it stands for Armalite Rifle which is the company that originally invented that rifle.

Shall not be infringed is sacred and untouchable, you are in clear violation of the 2nd Amendment and therefore you are the traitors to, We the People, therefore you need to be immediately removed from office and placed in custody.  While we are it, let’s grab Hillary and Obama and you all can hang together.”
