Missouri Democrats Introduce Legislation to Confiscate Firearms – Gives Gun Owners 90 Days to Turn in Weapons
Aren't Missouri Dems in the Legislature a minority party? Can we assume they will be even less of an influence as their numbers shrink in the next State election?
I'll try to track down the link, but earlier this morning I read that the penalty for having a magazine over the new limit is worse than that of a repeat child molester.
This is the kind of shit that makes me dig my heels in against any type of gun reform. Try to concede that sensible ideas deserve attention, and you get this instead.
Edit: here it is
Common sense gun legislation. Having eight rounds in a 10 round magazine, or having magazines with more than a 10 round capacity in New York will be is defined

I think you mean buying or selling. If you have a magazine that's legal now, you can still own and use it.
Compromise: if you use your extended magazine to gun down a repeat child molester, the penalties offset, and you're good to go.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
So here's the main reason to fight any sort of reform on gun laws...the complete ignorance of the people trying to do it.
Apparently "lawmakers" who are completely ignorant of current law.
18 USC 922(d)(1)-(9) makes it a crime to transfer to a prohibited person.
18 USC 924(a)(2) specifies fine and up to 10 years in prison for doing so.
Either these "lawmakers" are completely incompetent or just looking for camera time.”
WASHINGTON -- One measure to curb gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre took a major step forward in the Senate Monday when a bipartisan group of senators agreed to push a bill designed to crack down on gun trafficking. The measure, the Stop Illegal Trafficking of Firearms Act of 2013, merges a Democratic effort by Sens. Pat Leahy (Vt.) and Dick Durbin (Ill.) with a similar effort by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Mark Kirk (R-Ill).
It's SO gratifying when Ted Cruz tweaks liberal Democrat nitwits.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the 2nd Amendment doesn't mention guns. It speaks to the Right to bear Arms. Last time I checked a nuclear weapon is an Arm and private citizens can't own a nuclear weapon. DiFei is correct and cruz is a FOOL.

Come on out and get your whoopin!
I sympathize with your desire to have nuclear arms legalized for the retail market. I feel the same regarding sharks with frikking laser beams attached to their heads.
WTF do you think was meant by "arms?"
Who's that, frode?
It is probably both
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said on Monday that a controversial assault weapons ban will not be part of a Democratic gun bill that was expected to reach the Senate floor next month.
After a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Monday, a frustrated Feinstein said she learned that the bill she sponsored — which bans 157 different models of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines — wouldn’t be part of a Democratic gun bill to be offered on the Senate floor. Instead, it can be offered as an amendment. But its exclusion from the package makes what was already an uphill battle an almost certain defeat.

Including Sheriff John Cooke of Weld County, Colorado, 340 sheriffs have publicly stated they will not enforce gun laws they believe are unconstitutional.
In response to the passage of two new gun control bills in Colorado last week, Sheriff John Cooke told the Greeley Tribune that he "won't bother enforcing the laws."
One bill requires gun buyers to pay for their own background checks, a service that was previously free and now estimated to cost the buyer $10-$12 per purchase. The second bill puts a 15-round limit on magazines.
Cooke says of the new laws: "They're feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable."
Governor John Hickenlooper is expected to sign each bill into law this week.
Cooke is part of a growing list of sheriffs that have vowed to uphold the Constitution against gun control measures.
The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) has a running tally of all the sheriffs across the nation that have joined together to defend the Constitution.
At the time of this post, there are 15 sheriffs associations, 340 sheriffs, one police chief and one deputy sheriff who have stated they will not enforce any new gun laws.
As the "Right Views" previously reported, the number of sheriffs taking action continues to climb as the gun control debate heats up.

It seems to me that Democrats and liberals are intentionally or unintentionally ramping up the whole gun issue. I don't know why, but I can predict nothing good will come of it.
Ammo prices, if you can even find it, sure as hell are sky high.
Amazing testimony. This guy is good.
"Boomer" Steed from Vernon probably had the best testimony of the day. The man is an original. This is an American!
How do Connecticut residents feel about the crackdown on the Second Amendment? Well, there are people from both sides making passionate arguments on the issue, however, one gentleman last week was able to make a particularly persuasive case against more gun control and in favor of the U.S. Constitution.
I'll see your 340 sheriffs, and raise you 15,000 cops
"Contrary to what the mainstream media and certain politicians would have us believe," writes Police One Editor in Chief Doug Wyllie, "police overwhelmingly favor an armed citizenry, would like to see more guns in the hands of responsible people, and are skeptical of any greater restrictions placed on gun purchase, ownership, or accessibility."
The law-enforcement support site PoliceOne.com has released the results of a massive survey in which

Why doesn’t 90 percent of America equal 60 senators?
IMO the background check amendment should have been the only thing proposed. This was a classic example of political overreach
