    Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2008

    What a crock and the worst part it's sponsored by Republicans. It looks like they are trying to protect some firearms while denying our rights on others. Time to get rid of these idiots!






    A BILL





    To reinstate the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act.
    • Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
    SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
    • This Act may be cited as the ‘Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2008’.
    SEC. 2. RESTRICTION ON MANUFACTURE, TRANSFER, AND POSSESSION OF CERTAIN SEMIAUTOMATIC ASSAULT WEAPONS.

    The fact that the sponsor and cosponsors are Republicans wreaks of desperation. They are so afraid of losing seats to Democrats that they are willing to sell out to appeal to voters who otherwise might be inclined to vote Democratic.

    If we do vote them out, we'll only get Democrats who support it. Either way, we're screwed.

    Sweet Mother OF GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok i can see why they would want to put a ban back on, SKS's, AK47's, AR15's and other guns like that. But they are not only trying to ban them but just about every HUNTING rilfe/shotgun as well. This is just for Rifles and shotguns it looks like. What if you already have guns like that do you have to turn them in?

    The weapons listed in Apendix A are exempt from the ban and can't be added. If the ban goes into effect it will be like the last one. If you own it then you can keep it, sell it or trade it. I don't think this will fly. There would be a riot on the Capital steps!

    ‘(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to the possession or transfer of any semiautomatic assault weapon otherwise lawfully possessed under Federal law on the date of the enactment of this subsection.


    ‘(3) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to--
    • ‘(A) any of the firearms, or replicas or duplicates of the firearms, specified in appendix A to this section, as such firearms were manufactured on October 1, 1993;


      ‘(B) any firearm that--
      • ‘(i) is manually operated by bolt, pump, lever, or slide action;
        ‘(ii) has been rendered permanently inoperable; or
        ‘(iii) is an antique firearm;
      ‘(C) any semiautomatic rifle that cannot accept a detachable magazine that holds more than 5 rounds of ammunition; or
      ‘(D) any semiautomatic shotgun that cannot hold more than 5 rounds of ammunition in a fixed or detachable magazine.
    The fact that a firearm is not listed in appendix A shall not be construed to mean that paragraph (1) applies to such firearm. No firearm exempted by this subsection may be deleted from appendix A so long as this subsection is in effect.


    ‘(4) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to--
    • ‘(A) the manufacture for, transfer to, or possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States (including the United States Armed Forces and, under regulations pursuant to title 50, United States Code, the National Guard and Reserve), or a State or a department, agency, or political subdivision of a State, or a transfer to or possession by a law enforcement officer employed by such an entity for purposes of law enforcement (whether on or off duty);
      ‘(B) the transfer to a licensee under title I of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 for purposes of establishing and maintaining an on-site physical protection system and security organization required by Federal law, or possession by an employee or contractor of such licensee on-site for such purposes or off-site for purposes of licensee-authorized training or transportation of nuclear materials;
      ‘(C) the possession, by an individual who is retired from service with a law enforcement agency and is not otherwise prohibited from receiving a firearm, of a semiautomatic assault weapon transferred to the individual by the agency upon such retirement; or
      ‘(D) the manufacture, transfer, or possession of a semiautomatic assault weapon by a licensed manufacturer or licensed importer for the purposes of testing or experimentation authorized by the Secretary.’.

    I am afraid after the election it is as good as done. Once Obama is in we are in trouble.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7
