So most people have heard by now that atrocious “Assault Weapons Ban” has been killed off. Do not believe any of the lies the sponsors are feeding now that it’s been uncovered it would destroy the 4th amendment as well. This is the same bill they introduced in 2009. What does scare me though is the number of people who weren’t even aware of 5737 and actually asked me if I was kidding when I mentioned it.
So the good news is we stopped that piece of horrible legislation from moving forward. The bad news is Bill 1588 is moving forward. It was passed through the House Judiciary Committee with the support of a Republican.
Rep. Mike Hope – From Lake Stevens
If you live in his district, I highly suggest you make sure that he is not re-elected. He has shown what he thinks of you and your right to keep and bear arms. The only way a law such as this could be enforced is through universal registration, and never mind the additional burden to federal services.
A right delayed is a right denied and that’s exactly what they would do by forcing everything through NICS. Make no mistake about this folks, there are simple things they could do to aid honest law-abiding people keep guns out of the hands of criminals as well as improving the load on the Federal system. Instead they decide to attack the innocent and criminalize them. Instead they do everything they can to prevent the law-abiding from being able to easily and effectively obtain arms. Make no mistake about the problems behind background checks.
What happens when I loan a friend a side arm for a USPSA match because his broke? What happens when another friend wants to use my AR for a coyote hunt and I’m not going to be there? The whole system is nothing more than a sham to destroy the ability for gun owners to be able to freely associate and exchange firearms. Tell me, if I know Bob and Bob has firearms, why can I not let him borrow one of my firearms? Yes this type of BS background check legislation serves to criminalize exactly that type of incident.
Start ringing the rules committee, hopefully we can kill it there.
