BREAKING: Gun Banners Pull Last-Minute Stunt, Pass “Assault Weapons” Ban

Published

on

Now you see it, now you don’t!

So the gun banners pulled a fast one on us Friday!

Last Thursday, our friends over at Freedom’s Lodge reported the news that House Democrats had decided to kick the “assault weapons” ban bill–aka H.R. 1808–down the road for a vote after the summer break. Turns out that the gun banners were waiting for the end of the news cycle to quickly pass the legislation Friday evening. This is a well-known tactic among legislators and their lickspittles in the press: Dump the news that you don’t want people to see on Friday nights. The fact that House Democrats don’t even want their own loyal voters to know about this is just one more piece of proof that the anti-gunners are not doing this for their electorate. (For whom are they doing it? It’s a mystery!)

We’re livid. So are the gun-rights organizations. The reactions range from outrage to pure foul-mouthed fury. For example, here’s the NRA:

NRA-ILA Executive Director Jason Ouimet released the following statement on Friday regarding the passage of H.R. 1808:

“Barely a month after the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen, gun control advocates in Congress are spearheading an assault upon the freedoms and civil liberties of law-abiding Americans. The promises made in HR 1808 are nothing short of a lie based on willful ignorance of the disastrous 1994 Clinton Gun Ban which failed to produce any significant drop in crime. With more than 24 million potentially-banned firearms in common use, these draconian restrictions fall in blatant opposition to the Supreme Court’s rulings in BruenCaetano v. Massachusetts, and DC v. Heller. Their refusal to recognize this reality places everyone at risk. Any legitimate attempt to address our nation’s surge in violent crime cannot commence until anti-gun legislators step away from the radicals who defund our police departments, support prosecutors who refuse to prosecute dangerous criminals, and promote no cash bail policies that have turned once proud communities into a playground of lawlessness and fear.”

The FPC is putting it a little more bluntly.

Firearms Policy Coalition issued the following statement in response to the House vote on H.R.1808, the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2022”:

Today, the House of Representatives passed H.R.1808, which would, if enacted, criminalize the lawful and constitutionally protected conduct of millions of Americans.

In a time of economic recession, gross overreach and abuse of power by the federal government, and cascading governmental policy failures at all levels, 217 depraved representatives, including the deciding votes cast by Republicans Jacobs (NY) and Fitzpatrick, voted to violate natural rights and our Constitution, choosing to promote policies that would imprison peaceable people who have done no wrong.

There is no world in which American gun owners bend the knee and comply with this evil legislation. Further, if H.R.1808 is enacted, FPC Law will swiftly and aggressively take all actions necessary to fight and enjoin the bill.

And to all of those who supported and passed this immoral legislation, we say simply this: “Fuck you. No.”

A timely piece of advice from Skeletor.

    Vote and al they’ll do is produce enough phony ballots to nullify your vote.
    If we see a repeat of November 2020 in November of 2022, the time for talk is over. The Founders gave us the 2nd to prevent government Tyranny. If faking an election isn’t Tyrannical, then what is it?

    Though I feel most of the people who wrote posts here understand what’s being done to we law abiding AMERICAN CITIZENS, I feel I must add to it. ANY rifle, shotgun, pistol or revolver can be considered an assault weapon. How would any person want to be shot with a Cal. 58 muzzle loading rifle? It is definitely not the firearm that’s at fault. It’s the criminal type who ‘legally’ buys one simply because those who do background checks don’t do their jobs. And any who legally buys a firearm supposedly undergoes a background check that’s done by someone too lazy to do his job. Instead of new firearm laws why not enforce the old ones? We are losing all of our freedom simply because a bunch of moronic idiots didn’t have enough sense to look at Biden’s past record and blindly voted for him. So, as it now stands, WELCOME TO COMMUYNISM! You wanted it now you’ve got it. So’ enjoy.

      Whether, anyone’s noticed, assaults with blades is on the uptick, any and everything can be used to commit an assault action” upon another person. People commit assaults not inanimate objects.

    If a (so called) representative voted to “infringe” on your rights, don’t let them stay around to do more damage. Don’t wait for them to finish their term in office to vote them out! Start a RECALL campaign and boot them out now. They are violating their oath of office and should not be allowed to continue in office.

    What many don’t seem to understand is why the Second Amendment to the BILL OF RIGHTS was written. It was written so the law abiding citizens of the U.S. could and can defend themselves from a totalitarian government. The government we now face. Communists are in the process of overthrowing our government and turning our once free country into a dictatorship with George Soros in charge. Biden, and Obama before him are yes men carrying out that Nazi’s orders. If it isn’t stopped immediately we who actually belong here, no matter what our color might be or whether or not we’re citizens, we’ll lose everything. Our homes, bank accounts and all of our freedom.

      Yes, and the Republicans are colluding with the Democrats now and sending aid to Ukraine. Putin is trying to cleanse Ukraine of Nazis and Pedophiles who are being led by Hunter Biden. They are milking the children of their adrenochrome and Fauci has set up a Bio lab there to release the next pandemic. Fortunately the military will soon restore Trump to his rightly earned position. When that happens, the Med Beds will be released and gun shot wounds will easily be healed. World currencies will be reset and I’ll become rich with my Iraqi Dinar!

    No items in the bill that they say makes a semi-automatic weapon an assault weapon will change the way the weapon operates. All banned assault weapons operate the same as the unbanned weapons. None of the items listed will reduce the rate of fire, reduce the muzzle velocity of the bullet or reduce the muzzle energy of the bullet. All the items listed in the bill are external and only change the looks of the weapon. Assault Weapon Ban = Scary Weapon Ban.

    If ANY person thinks that this abomination is the only thing the antis are going to try to ‘pass’ you had best wake up. The list of specific banned guns by name will likely include just about any (all?) semi automatic firearm in existence. That WILL include handguns in addition to rifles and even shotguns. Why do you think that they REFUSE to give a specific definition of what an “assault weapon” is? That way they can eventually make it so all encompassing that they can ban any gun they want to, regardless of the form or function. They will NOT stop with ‘modern sporting rifles’ aka evil black rifles.
    The sop that they will toss out is that currently owned firearms won’t be confiscated (yet) – you can keep them (for now) but you CANNOT ever transfer them to anyone – by personal sale or trade or even hand them down to a relative. Under the provisions of this ‘law’ when you pass, those guns must be turned in to be destroyed.
    The senate is our only hope of preventing this horror from going to slow joe’s desk for signature and I have little faith in them. Their track record of late has been less than stellar. For instance, look how many voted to confirm an avowed anti gun person as head of the bats.
