Two days ago H.R. 4269 was introduced in the House with the title:
To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.
The bill had 123 Cosponsors and this would be the perfect time to make a list of those who should be removed from office the next time you have a chance to vote. We only had two throw in with the stupidity in NC so that should make it easier, unfortunately I don’t believe either represents my district.
The text was not yet available at the time of this post, but just look at the title. The first part of the title says, “to regulate assault weapons,” and if these people had an iota of knowledge about firearms they would know in the end it is just a rifle. The second part is really scary, it says, “to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited.” I guess these people missed the Second Amendment and shall not be infringed. We already have plenty of laws on the books about this or that, but to have the audacity to use the bill title to say we are going to infringe on your rights is pretty ballsy.
Hopefully this dies on the vine. Having a pistol grip on a rifle does not make it more dangerous or powerful. Having a folding stock on a rifle does not make it more dangerous or powerful. Having any military style feature does not make it more dangerous or powerful. Anyone who believes an AR is anymore dangerous than a bolt, lever action, or semi-automatic rifle is just showing their ignorance.
