    Default Most Sweeping Gun Ban Ever

    Action Alert

    NRA-ILA Grassroots Alert Vol. 14, No. 8 02/23/07

    THE MOST SWEEPING GUN BAN EVER INTRODUCED IN CONGRESS;
    McCarthy Bill Bans Millions More Guns Than The Clinton Gun Ban

    On Feb. 14, 2007, Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) introduced H.R. 1022, a bill with the stated purpose, “to reauthorize the assault weapons ban, and for other purposes.”

    McCarthy’s verbiage warrants explanation. Presumably, what she means by “assault weapons ban” is the Clinton Gun Ban of 1994. Congress allowed the ban to expire in 2004 for multiple reasons, including the fact that federal, state and local law enforcement agency studies showed that guns affected by the ban had been used in only a small percentage of crime, before and after the ban was imposed.

    With the nation’s murder rate 43% lower than in 1991, and the re-legalized guns still used in only a small percentage of crime, reauthorizing the Clinton Gun Ban would be objectionable enough. But McCarthy’s “other purposes” would make matters even worse. H.R. 1022 would ban every gun banned by the Clinton ban, plus millions more guns, including:

    • Every gun made to comply with the Clinton ban. (The Clinton ban dictated the kinds of grips, stocks and attachments new guns could have. Manufacturers modified new guns to the Clinton requirements. H.R. 1022 would ban the modified guns too.)

    • Guns exempted by the Clinton ban. (Ruger Mini-14s and -30s and Ranch Rifles; .30 cal. carbines; and fixed-magazine, semi-automatic, center-fire rifles that hold more than 10 rounds.)

    • All semi-automatic shotguns. (E.g., Remington, Winchester, Beretta and Benelli, used for hunting, sport shooting, and self-defense. H.R. 1022 would ban them because they have “any characteristic that can function as a grip,” and would also ban their main component, called the “receiver.”)

    • All detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifles-including, for example, the ubiquitous Ruger 10/22 .22 rimfire-because they have “any characteristic that can function as a grip.”

    • Target shooting rifles. (E.g., the three centerfire rifles most popular for marksmanship competitions: the Colt AR-15, the Springfield M1A and the M1 “Garand.”)

    • Any semi-automatic shotgun or rifle an Attorney General one day claims isn’t “sporting,” even though the constitutions of the U.S. and 44 states, and the laws of all 50 states, recognize the right to use guns for defense.

    • 65 named guns (the Clinton law banned 19 by name); semi-auto fixed-magazine pistols of over 10 rounds capacity; and frames, receivers and parts used to repair or refurbish guns.

    H.R. 1022 would also ban the importation of magazines exempted by the Clinton ban, ban the sale of a legally-owned “assault weapon” with a magazine of over 10 rounds capacity, and begin backdoor registration of guns, by requiring private sales of banned guns, frames, receivers and parts to be conducted through licensed dealers. Finally, whereas the Clinton Gun Ban was imposed for a 10-year trial period, H.R. 1022 would be a permanent ban.

    Please be sure to contact your U.S. Representative and urge him or her to oppose
    H.R. 1022!

    Ghhhh....

    time to go back to the days of blackpowder guns...

    then the only people who have guns would be the government and the bad guys....


    :Burgler breaks in:

    "Stop.... or I'll shoot"

    as you take your flintlock rifle, pour powder into the chamber, ram a ball down, and then pull the trigger... hoping the burgler doesnt have a gun that meets the banned criteria.

    Default F-ing Democrats!

    Wouldn't it just be easier to list the guns we can have? My whole gun Cabinet is in that F***ING list!

    I invite this woman to personally come and try to take my guns!

    "You’ll take my guns when you pry them from my cold dead fingers!"

    God Bless the NRA!

    "... You know, the Bill of Rights guarantees every citizen the right to own and bear firearms. It doesn't say anything about how many, how much you can pay for them. That's in the Bill of Rights. That's a sacred document in our country. There's no other country in the world that has such a document. And you know what its purpose is? To prevent the federal government from interfering with private citizens' rights. ... If you will read what the Founding Fathers wrote when they were writing it – Jefferson, Mason, Madison, Patrick Henry, Tom Paine – every one of them wrote at great length that they were talking about the individual rights of individual citizens. ..."

    Probably fewer than 2% of handguns and well under 1% of all guns will ever be involved in a violent crime. Thus, the problem of criminal gun violence is concentrated within a very small subset of gun owners, indicating that gun control aimed at the general population faces a serious needle-in-the-haystack problem.

    I'm neither a gun owner, a member of any prominent gun associations, nor a Republican, but I've just written my Congressmen because that is indeed absurd. I suggest everyone else do the same... With enough negative feedback it will never get out of committe.

    Yet another law designed to protect crimminals. I mean, they dont give a rats *** about the law so they are going to go get those weapons anyway and with the full knowledge that no one else (except maybe other crimminals) would be able to oppose them.

    When guns are outlawed, only the outlaws will have guns. The rest of us can use rocks & slingshots (until the crimminals petition congress to get those banned too).

    I agree on all points. I'm not a gun owner, but this law is absurd. I live in the district of a very conservative congressman, I'm 1000% certain he'll vote against it.

    As with the above, I am not a gun owner, nor do I have a desire to own a weapon. However I do believe in preventing congress from infringing on our basic liberties.

    This will be a fight that will be ongoing. Its' just not a few politcos' and groups here that want to ban guns but the UN and the New World Order folks that want all guns gone. The founding fathers founded this country on a revolution and placed safeguards against Big Governement takeover and what I consider enslaving the people. These gun control types will have a fight on their hands if they try to take my 2nd Ammendment rights away. Where guns have been removed from the regualr working, taxpaying, law abiding citizenry like Australia and great Britain it has done nothing but give the criminals carte blanche to do what they want against an unarmed citizenry.

    As I have said before, if you wish to suppress or outright eliminate my Constitutionally guaranteed right to own a firearm, which Constitutionally guaranteed right are you willing to give up?

    Perhaps you RIGHT to free speech?

    Your right to peaceably assemble?

    Your right to air grievances against YOUR government?

    Your right to protection from unreasonable searches and seizures?

    Just which right would these people be willing to give up? Where does it end?

    Mrs.McCarthy's husband was killed by Colin Furgeson so she ran for office bragging how she was running"against the NRA."
    In other words,she was running to weaken the Bill of Rights because someone murdered her husband using a firearm.
    Everytime someone uses a firearm to commit murder,there's some axehole that wants to ban the firearm used and others because they weren't what the Framers of the Bill of Rights were talking about.As if that excludes using computers,television and cellular phones to communicate with because they weren't invented in 1792,either.
    I have trouble enough buying a firearm 12 years after being arrested for defending myself.When I buy a gun,I get the instant check delay,usually for the 3 days and last week,I got denied but appealed it.
    The trouble I go through to merely exercise my Right to keep and bear arms makes me want to keep that Right.
    The reason the Second Amendment was crafted wasn't to allow for hunting and feeding one's family,though that was and is a factor for owning firearms.It was so the government could not outgun the citizens,and thus run roughshod over all of the Rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.

    Your right to air grievances against YOUR government?

    Your right to protection from unreasonable searches and seizures?

    Just which right would these people be willing to give up? Where does it end?


    When a government stops fearing its citizens, the citizens become subjects.

    And let us not forget that the United Nations has been making a push to make personal firearms/small arms ownership illegal.
