So, what is an assault weapon?

Before I get into that, let me mention this: next time you hear some slimey politician or useful idiot celebrity or sychophantic talking head on one of the alphabet networks saying that no one wants to confiscate law abiding citizen's guns or mess with the Constitution think about these two first steps in the war on your rights:

Missouri Democrats introduced legislation, HB545 that would compel law abiding gun owners to turn in their assault weapons within 90 days or be charged with a class c felony. No word yet on how these Dems are expecting to find all the lawfully owned weapons they want to confiscate, but maybe they'll take a tip from this next bit of facist legislation:

Democrat Senators in Washington state put forth a bill, SB5737 that would enable police to search the homes of law abiding gun owners once a year to ensure that their assault weapons are properly stored. So much for that pesky 4th Amendment, eh? I think Piers Morgan just had an orgasm.

The gloves are off folks. These fascist lefties don't have the balls to try and rescind the 2nd Amendment, but they're going to try ever possible end around to disarm you and render you completely helpless. Just keep watching, there will be more of this to come. More brazen as time goes on if we don't put a stop to it.

Anyway, I'm curious what these pinkos are calling an assault weapon, since as I mentioned before, it's a made up term. So I took a peek at the MO bill to see what was in it. Very illuminating, to say the least.

Section 571.023 defines an assualt weapon as a (c) Semi-automatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has one or more of the following: d. The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at any location outside of the pistol grip;

Hmmm . . . As a former competitive shooter, I competed in state and national competitions in Olympic and International courses of fire. Here are two of the firearms I used:

Yep, both of those Walther pistols are assault weapons under the MO law as the magazines attach forward of the grip. Btw, one is chambered for .22lr the other .22short, yep real dangerous killing machines there.

So what else can't we have? Let's see also defined as an assault weapon is (a) Semi-automatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has one or more of the following: a. A pistol grip or thumbhole stock

Uh oh . . . looks like these two centerfire .22's aren't going to make the cut either:

Oh those damn thumbhole and pistol grips, they're the devil I tell ya. 'Cause we've got more -- also banned (d) Semi-automatic shotgun that has one or more of the following: a. A pistol grip or thumbhole stock; You guessed it, this little duck hunting number from TriStar is history too:

The bill also makes illegal any high capacity magazines and defines them as any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than ten rounds which makes the factory supplied magazines for these commonly owned handguns illegal to possess:

Like I said, this is just the start. Once it starts with these little steps, what rights will be next? You know the bit about absolute power corrupting absolutely? Well, once these fascists get on a roll with stripping away your rights for the greater good where will it stop? What do you have to have taken away before you'll open you eyes and say stop?

Hey, friend, I agree with you completely. These "assault weapon" rules are ridiculous, and even worse, as you say, an encroachment by degrees where a frontal assault (hahaha) can't pass muster because of "constitutional" issues.

But, let me say this... first, a disclaimer: I am a definite, leftward-leaning lifelong Democrat. I am not ashamed, except when it comes to tripe like this. I grew up in a leftie-type household (my dad worshipped FDR as the savior of democracy and the working man), but we had and LOVED our guns! Kids had guns in their closets, right next to the toys. Nope, don't touch, boys, unless Dad says "time to clean the guns" or "time to go to the range." And we didn't. You see, back then, even liberal leftie pinko kids knew well enough to obey their dad when he said serious stuff like that.

So, I guess it's disheartening to me to see the left in this country go off the deep end so badly when it comes to guns and gun policy. A thinking person can discern good policy from bullcrap. And I think it's ironic that you call them illogical lefties "fascists" because pinko commie and fascist are as opposite as you can get. But, I guess, when we think of leftie pinkos, we think of Commie Russia and Commie China, which do have that "totalitarian" thing going on, just like real fascists do.

So, heck, what are we going to do with these brain-dead fartbags? Let's just keep fighting! I hate to say it, I may vote Republican just because of this "libtard" assault on 2nd Amendment, but for sure, no way will I start watching Fox News!

LOLZ! I wouldn't wish O'Reilly or Hannity on my worst enemies, but you might want to check out Brett Baier for news (plus the panel discussion) or Cavuto on business stuff, they're pretty good.
And you are right -- reasonable people of all political stripe should be concerned about these backdoor assaults on our constitutional rights, and should be able to engage in reasonable debate on the topic.

Thanks for commenting :-)
