Legislation proposed in Georgia that would ban the possession of semi-automatic firearms

The Daily Sheeple – by Sean Walton

Georgia State Senator Donzella James, (D-Atlanta), has pre-filed legislation that would ban the possession of semi-automatic firearms. The prohibitions in Senate Bill 281 would even ban common semi-automatic shotguns used for bird hunting and trap shooting. Any person convicted under this new law “shall be punished by imprisonment for a period of 5 years.” SB 281 has yet to be assigned to a committee. 

Legislation like SB 281 continues to be introduced across the nation, and many legislators jump at the chance to be at the forefront of gun-control efforts. Passage of SB 281 will do nothing to curb gun violence committed by criminals, but instead punishes law-abiding citizens.

“SB 281 is a wakeup call for sportsmen and gun owners,” said Bruce Tague vice president government affairs for Sportsmen’s Alliance. “Whether you are a duck hunter, deer hunter or trap shooter, it doesn’t matter. This bill unjustly penalizes law-abiding hunters, sport shooters and gun owners.”

  1. “Any person convicted under this new law “shall be punished by imprisonment for a period of 5 years.”

    Or they can simply enforce our Bill of Rights and kill any of the king’s men who attempt to imprison them.

    Keep flappin’ them gums, Donzell (WTF kind of name is THAT, anyway?), there’s a brand new hemp rope just waiting in the wings to stretch your treasonous neck… ‘TIL DEAD!!!

  2. I can see where there could be one hell of an out break of ferral pigs in the south. I can see it now in the subberbs, wild pigs rooting up lawns and shrubs eating grubs. This is after the farms are devistated. Where did all the firepower go? Ask Australia what life is like after buy back.
