Senate Democratic leaders expect a gun bill to move to the Senate floor that includes most of the proposals backed by President Barack Obama, with the notable exception of a ban on military-style, semiautomatic weapons, a top aide to Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said.
The bill would likely seek to limit the capacity of ammunition magazines; expand background checks to include sales at gun shows and other private transactions; and require better record keeping to keep guns out of the hands of those with mental illnesses. It would also try to curb gun sales in states with more relaxed gun laws to buyers in states with stricter laws.
You don’t need bullets.
You also need the government to get involved in every purchase or sale of a firearm, because you can’t be trusted, peasant. Of course we need better record-keeping, because you foolish children who aren’t as smart as us Ruling Class aristocrats need to be held completely in control, and we’ll get there eventually.
The goal is to get the bill to the Senate floor next month, at which point lawmakers could then seek to amend the legislation by adding a ban on certain semiautomatic weapons or other provisions, the aide said.
Because you stupid people won’t just let us take them from you – it’s for your own good but you’re too damned stupid to see we know what’s best for you! WE KNOW WHAT’S BEST FOR YOU!
This crap is getting really aggravating. Watching a republic plot tyranny in open view is actually downright infuriating. We need those arms specifically to protect us from them.
They think they know what’s best for us, and they’ll kill us just to make their point. They’ve done it before and they want to do it again, just so they can tell us how to live.
If this has you mad, write your reps. Ruger has a helpful tool here that lets you write them all at once.
