Democrats Using Cyber Security To Reach Our Guns
Often times in Washington, Democrats will try to go through the back door to get something passed. In this case they have attached an amendment to the Cyber Security Act which they have named the “Large Capacity Magazine Ban.” This amendment would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition. The Senate is expected to debate and vote on proposed amendments to the Cyber Security Bill during the first week of August.
Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer, Frank Lautenberg, Barbara Boxer, Jack Reed, Bob Menendez, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Dianne Feinstein are all sponsors of the proposed amendment. Feinstein was a sponsor of the Assault Weapons Ban which expired in 2004. Schumer says they are trying to implement some “reasonable” gun control measures. This is part of what Schumer said about the amendment, “Maybe, maybe, maybe we can pass some laws that might, might, might stop some of the unnecessary casualties.” You don’t sound too confident about that Chuck…
Maybe, maybe, maybe once the democrats get their foot in the door on gun control it might, might, might get a whole lot worse. Those extra maybes and mights are simply sarcasm toward Chuck Schumer because we all know it would snowball affect; once they got one gun control law passed we might as well burn the Second Amendment because many more would shortly follow.
Schumer also said, “The basic complaint is that the Chuck Schumers of the world want to take away your guns. I think it would be smart for those of us who want rational gun control to make it known that that’s not true at all.” No, right now you just want our magazines, tomorrow you want our semi-automatics, next week you want our bolt actions, next month you want our single shots, next year we are throwing our left over bullets at deer hoping they will fire on impact.
