The modified Assault Weapons Ban is on a roll.
This was a failure before and will be again. This time they want to tax the legal owner of any firearm that has a detachable magazine. The NRA argues such a policy would turn the Second Amendment into a privilege and would give the federal government a defacto means to block gun sales, pointing to the fact that in some circumstances the check may be in a limbo between a delay and timing out as NICS checks are only good for a 30 calendar day window. “This would turn all firearms sales from dealers into something akin to may-issue licensing,” the group said. “Prospective gun buyers who are not prohibited from owning firearms by law could be denied by bureaucratic dictate through the form of an indefinite delay.” I agree with the NRA 100% on this. This is Gun Registration, Taxing legal citizens into oblivion, and will ZERO effect on crime as did in the past. Do the supporters of this bill think we are that stupid as to not stand up and oppose this blatant attempt at taking our Constitutionally given right and turn it into a privilege!! Why do we have a Constitution if not to protect our rights?
Write your Congressman ASAP and oppose this BS or face the consequences of sitting on our laurels.
