Clearly We Are Paranoid

The last few months, we’ve been told that the Democrats are only seeking sensible gun control. Mother Jones listed “they’re coming fer our guuuuns” as their #1 myth in their debunking. Clearly, only a paranoid Right wing loon would actually believe that … aw, crap.

Oregon has a new gun law proposal. Jazz Shaw runs down the basic:

Creates crime of unlawful possession or transfer of assault weapon or large capacity magazine.

Punishes by maximum penalty of 10 years’ imprisonment, $250,000 fine, or both.

Requires current owners to dispose of or register assault weapons and large capacity magazines.

Think about that. You could be put in prison for ten years for having a magazine larger than some legislators think you should or having a gun that looks kind of scary. Those are the same sentences you would get for having an illegal full-on machine gun. In addition to machine-gun like penalties, there are machine-gun like restrictions. Owners have to discard or destroy them. Some may be allowed to keep them but will be forced to register and cops will be authorized to check to make sure the weapons are stored safely.

The way machine guns are regulated is the way the gun grabbers want every weapon to be regulated. They have stated as much on numerous occasions, only backing off for the last few years because gun control isn’t popular. Oregon’s law makes it clear that the intention is to extend the law further this time; at least as far as they think they can get away with for now.

    That is not the worst of it Hal, Section 5 of HB 3200 states

    (4)The department may conduct inspections of registered owners of assault weapons and large capacity magazines to ensure compliance with the storage requirements of section 4 of this 2013 Act.

    Then here is the money quote from section 6

    This 2013 Act being necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety, an emergency is declared to exist, and this 2013 Act takes effect on its passage.

    Nothing like a permanent emergency to keep a law around.

    Hal, just a hint: a full automatic rifle/ gun (M-16/A-4, ARK-47, MAC-10, ect) are sub-machine guns.
    A full on for real machine gun is most often a 2 or 3 man affair. It’s like fox-vs-wolf.

    This means the officer get to come into your home armed, and inspect your weapon storage, and if he is not happy with it, it gets confiscated right away………. yeah no way for corruption and graft there!
    Woe on the poor owner that disagrees with the officer vocally…
    Dems in the Missouri house offered up their gun control plan. in which would ban all so called assault weapons and give you 90 days to surrender sell or destroy them.c even having a “high capacity mag” would be a felony.

    This shit is getting crazy
