We now have generations of people who think;


The 1st Amendment is passé
The 2nd Amendment is from a bygone era and should be abolished
And that people are guilty before proven innocent.


So yeah, it could happen.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the Reagan government ban full auto guns in 1986?

Just wondering what pro gun people think about that was that a bad thing and should be reversed or can you live without full auto guns?

Also how hard are they to get? People say banning won't work so if that's the case then full auto guns should be easy to get and be everywhere right?

Won't Democratic gun owners, the blue dog type, feel forced to vote the GOP this round because of this.
All the GOP candidate has to tell them is look at this bill they tried to bypass the second amendment with this bill.
They could runs advertisements, voting for this candidate XYZ ensure this legislation will pass in the future, if many people own guns in there constituency it's slam dunk. This will backfire in all red states.

Who says people don't have fully automatic weapons?

I'm just spit-ballin' here, but because the government made them illegal, people seldom talk openly about them.

No, it banned the manufacture and import of new fully automatic weapons (machine gun type), which were already illegal or very hard to own from the 1934 Gun Act.

Simply put: it raised the value of those kinds of weapons that were already here (and already cost a lot of money to try and own).

They are very hard to get, require special license and takes many months or up to a year to get approved, but still completely illegal in 11 different states.

Not saying people don't have them just asking how effective the ban on them was. Effective or not so much? I've seen a lot on mexican cartels and it seems like the higher up criminal types in mexico and america can get them pretty easy, would that be a fair statement?

Yeah Reagan did ban machines guns made after 1986. Grandfathered older ones.

However he did fix problems of the Gun Control Act of 1968 with the Firearm Owners Protection Act.

You can still own a machine gun.

Only if.

You have thousands of dollars.

Live a PERFECT ,and I do mean absolutely effing PERFECT existence. Cause they check, like an enema.

And only if it's legal in your area.

Which is why it's out of the reach of many.

House Democrats are welcome to take that bill, roll it into a tight cilynder, and shove it up their collective asses. This is beyond ridiculous. The United States must not devolve into a group of fearful children willing to give away Rights to maintain the illusion of security.

I’m ok with the Dems not rolling it as tight before they shove it

So now we know who was in charge of the recent psyop attacks to spread fear in the American people...

Just kidding, hehe.

Or not.

Did it ever occur to you those dangerous people with dangerous weapons, aren't going to turn their weapons in?

Heh. Another illegal and unconstitutional "law" to ignore entirely


Burn in hell, nut-job socialists and their Beta-Male enablers.

I know I won't be. For any reason.

Too many in circulation. With our broke government, it'd be comical to see them try buying back 400,000,000 firearms. It'd bankrupt this pathetic counter-constitutional government so perhaps not such a bad idea after all.

Pride before fall.

EDIT:

Do you socialists really believe President Trump will sign this goofy left wing nut-job bill?

I own one myself, RDIAS picked up for ~20 grand

It was every bit as annoying as you described


And senseless. If I were a criminal ####head, I could've built one in my garage in about 10-15 minutes max. Even a shoestring or crankfire+drill can become a "machine gun" in this screwed up country.

Time to remove all gun laws.
Time to bring back the grand jury (the real one) to indict ANYONE attacking the Constitution for treason

He could do it. He's a Rothschild puppet after all. The Rothschild's would love to see all citizens disarmed, IMO.

Too off-topic for you to elaborate on that? I'm really interested in the Trump/Rothschild's connection.

Well Bandit, this should tell us for certain


If Trump signs ANY laws RE: firearms other than REPEALING the unconstitutional NFA/GCA, he will have lost my vote in 2020. I know 3rd parties never win, but I will NEVER vote for a Same-Old-#-Candidate we've had the last century or so.
