Gun Owners Will Determine The The Fate of Feinstein Gun Control Bill

I didn’t make it clear yesterday, but under the Gun Registration and Confiscation Bill that the Democrats will propose on January 3, 2011, tens of millions of current gun owners would be required to pay a federal tax and register their legally purchased firearms.  Failure to comply would be a federal felony that would not only result in confiscation of your firearms but could result in a felony conviction and bar you from every owning, possessing or even touching a firearm for the rest of your life.

Make no mistake about it.  Senator Dianne Feinstein’s new assault weapons ban would impose a $200 tax on hundreds of existing semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and pistols currently owned by tens of millions of law abiding citizens.

According to Feinstein’s bill summary, the legislation requires owners of semi-automatic rifles – deemed as assault weapons – to register their gun with the Federal Government under the National Firearms Act

The National Firearms Act, first enacted in 1934, was passed to choke the sale and transfer of fully automatic weapons.

Under the current NFA, owners of automatic weapons are allowed to keep their weapons but requires an owner to submit photographs and fingerprints to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE).

A $200 tax on an NFA firearm is imposed each time a NFA weapon is registered or transferred to a different address. Each weapon under the Feinstein proposed legislation must be registered as an NFA firearm and would be subject to the same restrictions.

But Feinstein’s bill goes even further, banning the transfer of “assault weapons.”  That means current owners of the banned weapons could only allow them keep them until they die. Instead of the gun passing down to heirs, the guns would be forfeited to the federal government.

If this Bill passes and it nullifies the Second Amendment and signals the beginning of tyranny in the United States.  In my opinion, there is a very simple way to stop this legislation from being passed.

If you are a gun owner who opposes this legislation, simply join the NRA for $25 . This bill will stay bottled up in Committee if just gun owners who possess either a modern sporting rifle, high capacity magazines or handguns that will be outlawed by the Feinstein legislation join the NRA for just $25. 

Seriously, it’s that simple.  Politicians number one priority is getting re-elected. The entire House of Representatives and 1/3 of the Senate will face election in 2014.  There are currently 4 million NRA members.  There are well over 100 million gun owners. In fact there are most likely over 200 million gun owners but they don’t want to be identified so they don’t tell pollsters they own firearms.

Just 40 million NRA members would insure our Second Amendment rights for the foreseeable future.  There are many Second Amendment organizations out there. I’m a member of Gun Owners of America (GOA), The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and The National Sports Shooting Foundation (NSSF). 

But the fact is, the NRA has the most political clout and has the best chance of stopping this and the hundreds of other gun control bills that will be introduced in 2013.  If you’re not willing to pay $25 and join, there will be consequences.  Don’t blame the liberal fascists.  They are what they are.  It’s the law abiding gun owners who control the outcome of this and all future gun control legislation.

Hickok45: Gun-Free Zones Are Easy Murder Zones

Hickok45 and his son Jon, have a channel on Youtube where they show and operate firearms on their home shooting range in rural Tennessee. The channel currently has over 325,000 subscribers.  

Hickok45 joined YouTube on January 6th, 2007. The channel has almost 109 million views as of this date. His son Jon produces the videos from the Hickok45 “compound”. Hickok45 has participated in the shooting sports his entire life . He purchased his son Jon a .22 rifle the day he was born.  Hickok45 was involved in competitive shooting matches for many years.  He served as a reserve Deputy Sheriff in Tennessee for ten years.  He is currently a concealed carry license holder.  Hickok45 has been employed as a high school teacher for decades. Therefore he works in a gun free zone. Hickok45 has said many times on his videos that he is not a hunter and has never used a firearm to kill any living thing. 

On December 25, 2012 Hickok45 posted on his YouTube shooting channel some random thoughts on recent events and the “Gun Culture.”  Here’s a summary of the video, which you can view in its entirety below.
 

One of the key points I wanted to make here is that for millions of Americans, guns are as common as golf clubs, baseballs & gloves, or any other sporting equipment people have around the house. Other than the obvious need to be careful with them, as with vehicles, matches, gasoline, etc., I regard them as nothing different from anything else. When visiting friends or relatives over the decades, it’s nothing for me to throw in a few firearms to take along that I know they might enjoy seeing or shooting.

I’m lucky to live in the United States, as well as in a “free state.” For example, I might visit a gun shop today, literally, and perhaps see a gun I want to purchase. If so, it will take about five minutes to do the paperwork and get the background check online. I’ll bring it home and be shooting the gun within minutes. It’s just not a big deal. This is what so many people cannot relate to, I suppose, especially if they’ve grown up in a family or country where firearms are considered “dangerous” and just not around much.

Having grown up in Kentucky and Tennessee, firearms for me are as much a part of life as fireworks, basketball, football, or boating. The fact that there are some “bad” or “crazy” people in the world who murder, rape, steal, torture, stab, shoot people, etc. just has very little to do with me. I do NONE of those things and have no inclination to do so. I am very thankful I have the easy means to prevent any of that from happening to me. I understand if your experience is far different from mine, but I’m darn sure not going to allow you to determine how I live MY life.

By the way, a few facts:
The “AR” in AR15 stands for Armalite Rifle; they introduced the rifle.

Semi-automatic rifles and technology have been around for over 100 years.
An “Assault Weapon” is a firearm capable of full-auto fire. These are already very highly regulated and require a long waiting period and Federal Stamp. Virtually none of the ARs and AKs in gun shops, gun shows, and citizens’ hands are “Assault Weapons,”.
Gun-Free Zones serve as “Easy Murder Zones” for any psychopath who chooses to do it.

Feinstein Bill Establishes National Gun Registration - Bans Handguns, Shotguns and Rifles

Feinstein’s assault weapons ban would abolish the 2nd Amendment

Here it is. Direct from Senator Diane Feinstein.  Her proposed bill will apply not only to so called assault rifles but thousands of handguns and shotguns would also be banned.  In addition to banning magazines that hold more than ten rounds, the bill established a national firearms registry.  To be exempt from the new and improved gun ban, current owners must register their firearms after being photographed, fingerprinted and approved by local law enforcement authorities to be grandfathered and retain their registered firearms.

You are a fool is you don’t think this is step one. Step two is confiscation of your registered assault weapons, including pistols and shotguns.

Summary of 2013 National Gun Ban and Registration legislation

Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:

  • Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
    • 120 specifically-named firearms
    • Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic
    • Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds
  • Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
    • Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test
    • Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test
    • Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans
  • Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds. 
  • Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
    • Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment
    • Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes and
    • Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons
  • Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
    • Background check of owner and any transferee;
    • Type and serial number of the firearm;
    • Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
    • Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
    • Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

How Many More Hollywood Hypocrites Must We Endure?

A bunch of Hollywood hypocrites have banded together to make a PSA for Demand A Plan, an outgrowth of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns non-profit coalition.

The video is incredibly vague. Who are we supposed to ‘demand a plan’ of? Could it be their patron saint Obama, who they think is being too friendly with the gun lobby?  Don’t know, don’t care.  Bottom line: COME AND TAKE IT

AR-15 for Morons. It's NOT a Military Rifle. There is NO Clip .

Why should we listen to the main stream media (MSM) when they don’t know anything about firearms, particularly the AR-15 platform.  At best the MSM, incuding FOX News, are anti-gun zealots with an agenda. At worst, they are spreading subversive propaganda for Brady Bunch.  We have a Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment is just as vital to freedom as the other nine.

The Armory Channel comes to us from the Democrat controlled yet Second Amendment friendly FREE state of Pennsylvania, which borders New Jersey, a notorious Second Amendment violator.  Listen up media morons.  It doesn’t take a graduate degree to know the difference between a clip and a magazine.  A military style rifle has a selector switch, allowing for single fire, 3 round bursts and fully automatic fire.  An AR-15 shoots one round and only one round with each trigger pull just like any other semi-automatic weapon, like a 1911 pistol.  The semi-automatic 1911 was invented 101 years ago. 

Wake up America.  You are being lied to by the far left liberal fascist propaganda machine. Click here if you don’t see the video below
