Why ANY Potential Weapons Ban Will Affect You (Hunter, Sport Shooter, Self Defense)

Guns Save Lives

By now I am sure everyone is aware that a new “Assault Weapons” (their words, not mine) Ban will be introduced by Dianne Feinstein at the start of the 2013 Congress.

You can see what the preliminary language of the bill is going to ban here.

I know many people, including some self identified supporters of the Second Amendment, are out there right now saying, “Who cares, this ban doesn’t affect me. It only goes after military weapons and assault rifles. I can hunt and defend my family just fine with my 30-06 rifle and my 9mm Glock.”

Well, wait a second, let’s look at just what could be banned under the new proposed law. Here is the wording that Feinstein is currently using on her website:
Stops the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of more than 100 specifically-named firearms as well as certain semiautomatic rifles, handguns and shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.

I’m not sure many people realize just how far reaching that statement is.

Let’s break it down into a list that is a little easier to read.

Under Feinstein’s proposed bill, the following types of guns would be banned:

  • 100 Specifically named firearms (we don’t know what these are yet)
  • Handguns that can accept a detachable magazine (Glocks, Sigs, M&Ps, 1911 style pistols, Springfield XDs and the list goes one)
  • Semi automatic rifles that can accept a detachable magazine (Ruger 10-22s, Ruger Mini 14, Ruger Mini 30, AKM pattern rifles, AR pattern rifles)
  • Shotguns that can accepts a detachable magazine (No more Saigas)
  • Fixed magazine fed semi automatic rifles that can accept more than 10 rounds
  • Fixed magazine handguns (I’m not aware of any modern handguns besides revolvers that fit this category, but it’s there nonetheless)

We aren’t just talking about 1 or 2 specific models of guns here. We’re talking about thousands of individual models that will no longer be available for purchase or transfer.

Decided you don’t need one of your Glock handguns anymore? Want to sell or pawn it to help with some bills? Sorry bud, that gun is yours forever. I suppose you could always turn the gun in to the government for destruction.

OK, so you only own 6 shot revolvers, pump shotguns that hold 5 rounds, and a bolt action hunting rifle. You’re good to go, right? Why should you throw your hat in the ring with these other gun owners? You don’t even believe in those semi automatic doohickies anyway.

What do you think is going to happen once all of the semi-autos are more or less gone? Are crazy people going to stop killing other innocent people? No, they’re just going to change weapons. They are going to use lever action rifles and revolvers. THEN they will be coming after your hunting rifles, your bird shotguns, your target shooting guns, and the revolver you keep in your nightstand to make sure you can keep your family safe if evil kicks in your door at 3am.

Rest assured, when there are no more evil “assault weapons” to blame for senseless violence of crazy people your weapons will be next.

Supporters of gun rights, regardless of what type of weapons you own, should all band together to fight any new legislation that restricts gun ownership.

Some people may be too young to remember, or weren’t paying attention because the media wasn’t as powerful then, but back in 1986 gun owners made concessions to the anti-gun lobby in order to protect the future rights of gun owners. The Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986outlawed machine gun ownership for automatic weapons not manufactured and not registered before 1986. Many gun owners were completely fine with the legislation saying, “What would I need a full auto gun for? I have my semi-auto versions, which are cheaper anyway. Besides, they’re letting people keep the ones they have now, you’ll still be able to get one if you really want one.” However, over 25 years later automatic weapons are almost unattainable due to price and availability. Those same gun owners who were OK with keeping their semi-autos are now the same ones fighting for their rights to keep those weapons legal.

An attack on any part of the Second Amendment is an attack on the entire Second Amendment.

    Americans could turn the tables on the gun grabbers by just agreeing that they will never use a gun. They could even sign a pledge to that effect.

    When the government needs soldiers in the future you just show them your pledge and tell them “if I can’t use my gun, what makes you think I would want to use your gun?”.

    Same goes for being a police officer. You just say “no thanks, I signed the pledge so I will use a whistle and one of those little stick thingies”.

    Before long they will be begging people to carry guns to do their dirty work.

    • NC says:

      Yea, but you’re forgetting one thing. The government will just re-write a law to say “Now you must help the government fight and if you don’t, you will go to jail or get shot in the head.” Makes no difference to them whether you signed a pledge or not. They will just make a law saying that anyone who signed and has had it for so many months now, will just be invalid. They can re-write and change laws all day for all they care, as long as it suits them. So your little pledge would mean jack shit to them!

    Instead of banning guns, ban Dianne Feinstein.

  3. Birdshot says:

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” — Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

    The federal government also says that its law forbids the sale or transfer of marijuana, and people seem to be really obeying that one. LOL!

  5. Jolly Roger says:

    I wouldn’t lose too much sleep over this. Half the country just got AR-15’s for Christmas, and if this Zionist idiot thinks she’s going to take ’em it’ll be fun to watch.

  6. Billy T says:

    Yeah, supporting gun bans like this with the thinking of “who needs a semi-automatic rifle with 30 round magazine anyway”, is the same thing as letting the devil get his foot in the door. Zero compromise is the order of the day, and I would go so far to say that the people start to demand the unbanning of full auto weapons.

    When the government pushes one way, we must push back the other way as hard as possible. They want to ban semi-autos. We demand the unbanning of full-autos.

  7. Eomer says:

    I agree with Billy T. I’ve always believed in compromise but when it comes to a constitutional right, NO WAY. I don’t believe in such a thing as being half free. Freedom of speech has been limited to gated areas. Free speech zones. What a load of crap. They’ve turned freedom into a momentary privilege. If people are stupid enough to turn in their guns and then let the government or UN take control of the internet, then they don’t deserve freedom. Fortunately most gun owners appear to have the sense to see through these smoke screens.

  8. European American says:

    A question might be: If they ban AR’s, for example, what are the people with AR’s going to do? The AR crowd is different than any other facet of the gun owners world. Militant without a doubt. Enough “militant” to take an offensive role against the tyrannical fascists? If so, how? Individually or in small teams or larger militias? At this late stage, where is the organization?

  9. GREGO says:

    The so called law they want to pass has no legal authority, they did not give us the bill of right and its not theres to take.. this law will be ignored, I will trade, sell and buy what I please, there law means nothing to me,,One time they said blacks were slaves,,can they pass a law that says ALL the sun light is now ours and you cant use it,, No they can’t and this is the same,they have No authority to change the bill of rights..And I dont give them authority to take or ban anything I own..
