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.

God Bless Our Troops!!!
The appendix"A" reads like a who's who of hunting guns

What a crock
vote these morons out of office
 
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.’.

Nothing on handguns. Assault Weapons mainly refer to long guns, however, that doesn't mean that an attachment couldn't be put with the Bill to cover handguns. At least so far this Bill hasn't seen the light of day. If it does "We the People" must do something and not sit by and let it happen!

"High Capacity Magazines" holding greater than 10 rounds is also included.......that means any full-sized 9mm or any other such handgun that can shoot 12 rounds or more w/out reloading.

I've sent my letter to Rep. Steve Cohen-D (TN 9th) requesting his opposition to this bill. I doubt it, as he is quite a liberal Democrat from Memphis. This is the same guy who compared Obama to Jesus a couple months back.

Obama is a mack daddy!
Looks like I need to buy my AR and AK variants plus any non-reduced capacity magazines for firearms I wish to acquire while I still can. I guess we have 6 to 18 months left. There's a good chance the AWB will be back for another decade.
 
Ok what one is it. Handguns are? Or not in this bill i saw nothing on them, redhat says no and you say yes. If we have 6 to 18 months before it will happen that's more then enough time to stock up. Even save money up so you can stock up. From the Yahoo % thing it says Obama is at 50 and the BIG MC is at 44. So who knows he may win..

So get politically active like a bunch of us have, don't vote third party, and don't believe all the poll's they are heavily weighted for the Marxist.

The only handguns that might be classified as "assault weapons" would be like the Ar-15 pistol or the Kel-Tec PLR16. There are others that could be classified as such but none are not mentioned in the Bill. Like I said before they could always amend the Bill to include anything they want. Just in case Stock up on supplies for the firearms you have and anything you get later. This might be a long battle!:butcher:

Which is why gun lovers need to stock up on all the guns, ammo, and handloading equipment they can possibly get their hands on legally.
