I’ve often heard people state the government and lawmakers are not talking about taking your guns away. Oh yes they are.
From the Daily Caller.
In an interview with the Daily Times Herald in Caroll, Iowa, state Rep. Dan Muhlbauer said governments should start confiscating semi-automatic rifles and other firearms.
Muhlbauer, a Democrat from the western Iowa town of Manilla, is a cattleman and farmer. The newspaper reported that he owns a .410 shotgun, a .22 rifle and a .22 pistol.
“We cannot have big guns out here as far as the big guns that are out here, the semi-automatics and all of them,” Muhlbauer told the newspaper during a December 19 audiotaped interview. “We can’t have those running around out here. Those are not hunting weapons.”
The 2nd Amendment is not about hunting you illiterate communist windbag. This man – along with the other gun control nuts advocating confiscation should be shunned right out of office if not the country.
In Connecticut, Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) wants instant NICS background checks when you purchase ammo.
… Blumenthal said Tuesday that he will introduce a bill to close what he called a “ludicrous loophole” by requiring that people undergo instant background checks when they buy ammunition — just as they must do before they buy a gun. …
Under Blumenthal’s bill, the quick checks that federally licensed firearms dealers are required to perform on would-be gun purchasers — using the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System (NICS) — would also be required to determine if an ammunition buyer falls into one of the banned categories.
He is serious. This federal legislation would virtually eliminate the ability to purchase ammunition online, and many stores that now sell ammunition would either stop selling it or dramatically increase the price. In Connecticut, retailers would have to contact the Connecticut State Police every time you buy a box of ammunition. Can you imagine the cost to make and answer all the phone calls? Many states are frequently overwhelmed with calls for background checks and this could easily increase the number of background checks 20-fold.
And of course, it would not stop someone from mass murder.
