Yay. That wondrous organization that bribes... I mean petitions congress to limit the supply of Doctors and limit residencies in order to keep prices high and make sure there is a shortage of specialist wants to Ban your means of self defense. In this round of lunacy, the organization wants to ban any "armor piercing" round... which means almost all rifle rounds.


AMA crazy




On Wednesday, the American Medical Association approved an expansive list of “common-sense” demands for new gun control measures, including proposals to ban the sale and possession of “all assault-type weapons, bump stocks and related devices, high-capacity magazines, and armor piercing bullets.” These gun control guidelines were approved by the AMA’s House of Delegates, a forum of the medical organization’s member physicians that meets twice a year to vote on medical and political policy recommendations.

The lengthy list of gun policy changes also includes bans on the sale of firearms and ammunition to those under 21 years of age, prohibitions on the ownership and unsupervised use of firearms by those under 21, and the establishment of a national gun registry for all firearms and a gun licensing system for gun owners.

More worryingly, because there is no definition of what qualifies as an “armor piercing bullet,” the AMA’s proposals can be reasonably interpreted as a call for banning practically every type of rifle ammunition in existence given that (with the exception of extremely small calibers like .22 LR) almost all rifle rounds can pierce Kevlar-based body armor, the standard type of ballistic protection used by law enforcement agencies worldwide. Thus, if Congress or any other legislative body actually followed through on the AMA’s vague proposal, everything from smaller rifle calibers like .223 and .243 Winchester all the way through other common hunting rifle rounds like .270 Win., .30-06, .308 Win., or .444 Marlin could be banned and confiscated en-masse by the government.

The AMA?
Doctors kill more people than guns so how about some common sense regulations for doctors?

Well, I guess they're entitled to their opinion like anyone else. It's a good thing their opinion doesn't matter.

And like the saying goes, opinions are like buttholes...

You mean the same hacks — sponsored by Big Sugar — that told us for 20 years eggs were killing men and a cardiovascular nightmare?

They should keep to “An apple a day, will keep the doctor away.”

What a turd sandwich of proposals

armor piercing bullets.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong here but any FMJ bullet can be considered armor piercing, right? Am I wrong when I say that a soft nose or hollow point is banned in war because they are actually designed to fragment, cause even more damage and more likely to kill than the FMJ? If I'm right this just shows more ignorance of what they are addressing, right?

I suspected something like this was going to happen after the Parkland Florida shooting.

My thinking led me to wonder if indeed mandatory gun registration hasn't already been found to be unconstitutional.

Apparently..........that's not exactly the case!
www.cbsnews.com...


Even some pro-gun scholars and advocates reluctantly agree. "I think under the Heller decision, registration would be constitutional," Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation in Bellevue, Wash., told CBSNews.com this week. "It doesn't make it good public policy."


Worse!

"Systems akin to registration were quite common at the time of the framing of the Constitution and the time of the ratification of the Bill of Rights," says Dennis Henigan, vice president for law and policy at the Brady Campaign and author of the new book Lethal Logic. "Even before that the state militia statutes had the same kind of requirements, so they can track how well the militia was armed." Then again, the reason for registration in Colonial America was the opposite of today's. In the 1700s and early 1800s, public policy encouraged firearm ownership. Now governments that mandate gun registration tend to want to discourage it.


Its just a guess on my part, but I'd suspect that this is the first effort in a lengthy push by the Leftist Progressives to force a Federal law mandating gun registration. It probably won't pass without the Dems having control of both Houses of Congress..........but with the AMA push, it will eventually be taken up and will probably be passed within the next 20 years or so.

That would essentially make major metro areas a free fire kill zone for the criminal class and the radical classes.
No one will be safe anywhere including in their own homes. That's assuming of course that they get the registration done and then follow-on with a buy-back followed up with confiscation............and they will. Its really only a matter of time.

So when that happens, as well, "normal" law abiding citizens will have a new enemy! The Cops themselves!


This isn't a mere abstraction: four years ago, after Hurricane Katrina laid waste to much of New Orleans, local police, the national guard, and U.S. Marshals began breaking into homes at gunpoint and confiscating lawfully-owned firearms.


Suicide by Cop could become a real thing!

Registration is always the first step to confiscation. We have seen that card played over and over and over again.

Now I am beginning to believe they know their meds are causing some of these shootings and they want to limit their liability for creating people who do these kind of things by taking everyone's guns away. I suppose if only licensed doctors can carry a gun then they will be happy.

This is a set up. You know almost everyone in this country is now considered having a mental condition. This organization has made things up to show they are needed. Now if they would get the chemistry out of food, and also to tell people the truth about what nutrition is spewing as super foods, then we would get along better. They are brainwashing everyone that we need to see a doctor about everything, steering all our money into their pockets.

The AMA has the wrong staff as their trademark, the staff of Hermes, not the staff of Apollo which is the single serpent which is the sign of true medicine. That is the problem, the staff of commerce, big business, is governing our health care network here in America....and they are not even hiding it, they are confident that we are already brainwashed. This has been going on since I was in Premed. It started long before that but lots of earlier doctors did want to heal people. The medical industry likes getting members that like making lots of money, they put these at the top, their desire for wealth makes them easier to control. There are people out there that do honestly want to help people, but those doctors are hard to find, years of conditioning by the colleges screwed up the majority of the doctors.

The other trick is to have all guns stored in armouries,then when the take over happens you throw away the keys as Hitler did.

Incorrect. FMJ ammunition is not armor piercing.

What is AP Ammunition?




Am I wrong when I say that a soft nose or hollow point is banned in war because they are actually designed to fragment, cause even more damage and more likely to kill than the FMJ?


Hollow point ammunition expands on impact, dumping the majority of the energy into the target and causing more damage than an FMJ. They are ideal for self defense.

The bullet often does not penetrate all the way through and both temporary and permanent wound channels are more pronounced.




If I'm right this just shows more ignorance of what they are addressing, right?


Sometimes people live in a bubble where all of their ideas meat zero resistance. I think that's what we're actually seeing out of the AMA.

The medical establishment has their shills even on this site if you peruse the medical threads,I use alternate medicine and have cured diabetes and hypertension with it - whilst all western medicine has to offer is a long slow malingering death on their drugs so any policy statement by this profession I would seriously question whose interests it serves.

Very true..........why else have registration. But we all know the ultimate goal of the Leftists has been confiscation from the only people who would comply with registration, i.e., the law abiding citizenry. Its quite telling to me that you never hear any outcry from the Leftist MSM about the daily cull in Chicago, but you weekly hear Leftist MSM spewing on about the need for gun control, of course to be imposed on the law abiding.

Kind of telegraphs that their real intention is to do as much damage as humanly possible to the law abiding. Put another way, they really hate the white suburbanite middle class that would be most egregiously affected by this.

Do you all realize that that they currently have the legal means to do this based on the taxes and the wording of the ama?

As long as we are taxed for health they have the right to do whatever they choose.

Your only recourse is to eliminate the tax.

Whether they realize it or not, Civil war would be the result.

From this point forward, ANY legislation that attempts to further cripple the 2nd amendment has to hit a brick wall.

It's reached a point where further restrictions simply cannot and will not be allowed.

Period.

How many people are ready to lose their jobs if they do not follow along with whatever these people want?

Do you understand that they will not come door to door at first?

They will use other tactics to disarm people by making them choose between their lively hood and their gun.

If they have proof you own a gun and you do not do what they ask they will file charges on you and you will begin a downward spiral. that is just one scenerio

better remove aca and take back your freedom
