In the wake of the Florida shooting, the radical gun-grabbers in Washington D.C. are moving as fast as they can to ‘cash in’ in any way they can.
That’s exactly what is happening with Senator Feinstein’s new Assault Weapons Ban, a bill that would specifically ban 196 different firearms!
And this isn’t just a listing of exotic firearms; this listing includes rifles, handguns, and shotguns.
Of course, with the definitions being as broad as they are, hundreds more firearms that you and I legally enjoy today would be swept up in this attack on our gun rights!
The Senate version of this bill already has 27 cosponsors and the House companion bill (H.R. 5087) has amassed a whopping 173 cosponsors and is adding more almost daily.
Here in Minnesota, Congressman Tim Walz, Keith Ellison, Richard Nolan and Congresswoman Betty McCollum are four of the cosponsors to the House version of this bill, which is why I hope you’ll sign our petition OPPOSING the Feinstein gun ban below!
Sometimes a gun owner will tell me at a gun show or over the phone that ‘I already have what I need, so this wouldn’t impact me.’
The bill specifically does away with the ‘grandfather clause.’
Worse, it makes instantaneous felons out of you if you possess one of the hundreds of firearms that meet their criteria after the bill takes effect by making it unlawful to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess them.
You can not own it.
But you also can not sell it.
Nor can you give it away!
And as you can likely imagine, the bill also makes it an instantaneous crime to possess a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds of ammunition.
Like the firearms ban, you can’t give the mag away, you can’t sell it, and you can’t transfer it.
This is a blatant attempt to make criminals out of millions of gun owners who possess these firearms and accessories right now!
So much for handing down family firearms to your children or grandchildren.
More than the actual firearm, so much for being able to hand down a love for freedom, the Second Amendment, and personal responsibility should this bill pass!
And when you’re done, I hope you’ll consider a donation to help Minnesota Gun Rights spread the word about this bill and mobilize as many gun owners as we can.
Too many gun owners assume that this problem is going to ‘blow over’ in time.
But this is different, as many of our ‘allies’ are banging the gun control drum.
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is calling for gun control, as is Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and don’t forget, Minnesota’s Erik Paulson was one of the first co-sponsors of Feinstein’s “bump-stock ban”.
And that’s not even considering ‘pro-gun Governors’ like Governor Kasich (R-OH) and Governor Scott (R-FL.)
