Following President Barack Obama’s lead, Democrats in the State of Georgia have filed HB 731, which would ban and confiscate all so-called “assault weapons.”
Those “assault weapons” are the same as any semi-automatic deer rifle. They just have cosmetic changes which don’t make the bullets more deadly, but their appearance is “scary” enough to Democrats that they want to take them all away from you.
This is horrible, and unconstitutional!
Georgia Democrats have filed HB 731, “A Bill to Get Every Democrat In Georgia Tarred and Feathered.”
Here’s the purposes of the (unofficially) unnamed bill.
To amend Article 4 of Chapter 11 of Title 16 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to dangerous instrumentalities and practices, so as to prohibit the possession, sale, transport, distribution, or use of certain assault weapons, large capacity magazines, armor-piercing bullets, and incendiary .50 caliber bullets; to provide for crimes involving the possession, sale, transport, distribution, or use of certain assault weapons, large capacity magazines, armor-piercing bullets, and incendiary .50 caliber bullets; to provide for criminal penalties; to designate certain weaponry and ammunition as contraband and to require seizure of such by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation; to provide for enhanced penalties for the possession and use of machine guns; to provide for definitions; to provide for exemptions; to provide for related matters; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.
The bill would outlaw millions of common semi-automatic firearms, standard-capacity magazines, and define a wide-range of bullets as “armor-piercing,” including brass bullets that are becoming increasingly popular for big-game hunting and other lead bullet alternatives.
HB 731 violates both the letter and the spirit of United States and the Georgia constitutions in regards to the natural right to bear arms for self defense. The bill specifically targets those arms and accouterments best suited for a “well-regulated militia,” not those most commonly used to commit crimes.
Via Bearing Arms
This law requires that specific guns have to be turned in or “rendered permanently inoperable”… otherwise once law-abiding gun owners will be instant criminals.
President Barack Obama has used recent Islamic terrorist tragedies as an excuse to limit guns for law-abiding citizens.
And Hillary Clinton isn’t holding anything back, either:
But guns are what keep us safe from attack. A free society requires firearm ownership for self-protection, since police can’t respond to every situation.
The types of firearms these Democrats want to confiscate make up such a tiny fraction of FBI crime stats that they don’t even bother keeping an accurate count. This law is all about anti-gun hype… and they are infringing on our rights in the process.
