Democrats have been waiting for this day. This country just suffered two mass shootings in less than 24 hours. These were despicable acts of violence targeting innocent people.
But, like so many past tragedies, the Left doesn’t care about punishing the perpetrators of this violence. No, they want to punish YOU.
Deranged people went on shooting sprees and that means that YOU shouldn’t be allowed to own firearms.
But there is something different about these two shootings. Democrats aren’t the only ones calling for gun bans anymore. Republicans have now started supporting the Left’s radical gun bans too…
And they want to use these tragedies to take down the 2nd Amendment once and for all!
Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and David Cicilline (D-RI) have reintroduced the Assault Weapon Ban of 2019. But this year’s version of the ban is more radical than any others that came before.
The original Assault Weapon Ban of 1994 banned 20 firearms by name and created a definition for targeting “copycat” guns. Basically, if a gun had “AR-15” or “AK-47” written or stamped on it, it was banned by name. If a gun had three or more ‘evil’ features, like a detachable magazine, collapsable stock, bayonet lug, pistol grip, threaded barrel, or grenade launcher, then it was banned as a “copycat.”
When the bill was re-introduced in 2013, the maximum number of evil features was lowered to one. The newest version of the bill reduces it to zero. Not only does it ban 204 different guns by name, but If a semi-automatic weapon has any of these features, it would be banned too.
But Feinstein didn’t stop there. Tucked away in the bill is a radical change. She has redefined “pistol grip” to mean “a grip, a thumbhole stock or Thordsen-type grip or stock, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip.” (emphasis added)
What does this mean? Practically every semi-automatic rifle on the market today would be banned. If the gun accepts a detachable magazine — which the vast majority of guns sold in the United States do — and it’s possible to hold it in your hand, it would be banned.
But it doesn’t just stop there. The Feinstein/Cicilline bill would also ban millions of legally owned pistols, including handguns with threaded barrels or ‘arm braces’ originally designed to help disabled gun owners better handle their firearms.
They’re not just targeting certain weapons anymore. They are going after ALL semi-automatic firearms.
Amazingly, Republicans are still lining up to vote for this trash. Marco Rubio(FL), Susan Collins (ME), and Lisa Murkowski (AK) are still promising to vote for an assault weapon ban if it ever reaches the floor. RINOs like Fred Upton (MI) and Chris Smith (NJ) were able to win re-election by promising to make gun control a priority.
The Democrats are launching their push now because they believe they have enough Republican votes to push it through.
It is up to YOU to stop them!
Ronald Reagan famously warned us that our freedoms were never more than a generation away from extinction. He was right.
Democrats passed the original assault weapon ban in 1994. Ever since it expired in 2004, Democrats have been trying to pass it again.
Now, the next generation is promising to finish what the Left started 25 years ago…
Unfortunately, Ronald Reagan was absolutely right. This fight has reignited, right on schedule. The GOP is caving.
Now, more than ever, you must rise up and stop this anti-gun bill before it’s too late!
