Many people consider it a strange world in which marijuana is legal and guns are illegal. Many of those people grew up in an America in which pot was demonized by their parents and grandparents, and Second Amendment rights were considered sacred.
How times have changed. At least in a few areas.
California already had legalized marijuana and crazy gun control in place, but, now, another state famous for, among other things, legalizing marijuana within its borders, is seeing efforts to ban firearms. Michael Clements writes,
Colorado appears ready to join other states in quashing Second Amendment rights. A draft of the “Mass Shooting Prevention Act,” expected to be introduced in the upcoming Colorado General Assembly legislative session, was made public, and Second Amendment advocates are concerned.
“This bill uses the most insane parts of the laws from California and New York,” Taylor Rhodes, executive director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO), told The Epoch Times. “This doesn’t just ban many commonly owned pistols and shotguns; this will ban almost 70 percent of all firearms overnight.”
Rhodes was made aware of the bill draft almost three weeks ago. He said the proposed legislation is designed to greatly diminish Second Amendment rights in Colorado.
“You might as well call this the ‘Gun Owners Get Out of Town Bill,’” Rhodes said.
The proposed law expands the definition of “assault weapons” to cover a wide array of commonly owned rifles, pistols, and shotguns. Parts that could be used to convert a semiautomatic weapon into a so-called assault weapon would also be outlawed. The only exceptions would be guns owned before the law was enacted, which would be grandfathered in [if they can prove that they had ownership, in a yet as unspecified way, before the ban goes into effect].
You don’t have to be a Constitutional scholar to realize how completely crazy this legislation is. It is completely nuts on multiple levels.
And, based on how the U.S. Supreme Court has been ruling in regards to Second Amendment cases lately, it’s possible that this legislation will never have a chance to get implemented before it is blocked in court and overturned.
But that, obviously, isn’t stopping anti-2A nuts from trying.
And that’s why we have to continue to educate people and to fight for our Second Amendment rights.
They can ban all they want. I’m keeping mine. And yes, they can take my gun when they pry it from my cold, dead fingers, because I WILL shoot back. We need a new American Revolution, and I said so in my brilliantly insightful book, “The New Fascism: An Idea Whose Time Has Come.”
The stupidity is that ANY weapon is potentially an assault weapon if used to assault someone!
The grandfather clause is suspicious because it could be used to keep records for a later date when they pass further legislation to confiscate all your guns.
Hopefully they face a long uphill battle to try passing this bullshit.
So TRUE! Even a sharpened wooden pencil can be used as an ‘assault weapon’! Let’s see the Colo. government try prying these out of little children’s fingers! Not to mention, ANY fist-sized rock, a handy limb, a ‘deadly’ screwdriver’, pipe-wrench, the list is endless for ‘assault weapons’!
This country was founded on blood and murder. Yep you read right. And guess what? It will end in blood and murder of those who oppose the U.S. Constitution especially the 2nd amendment. Need I say more? If so, you can fill in the gaps. And while your pondering, go n’ have yourself a beer:)
But the people are sheep now, and won’t fight back. unless everthing collapses, which is more and more likely, thanks to Brandon.
They will only be as successful as we allow them to be. I just unsubscribed from “Dark Lord of Optics” because he said he will always follow all laws even ones that strip away at our 2nd Amendment Rights. If our forefathers had that kind of mentality we’d still be nothing but another lousy British colony. Unconstitutional laws are not valid laws and the Dark Lord is apparently not a Patriotic American. The 2nd IS America and that Shall Not Be Infringed.
The Declaration of Independence considers it an unalienable right, which means an individual cannot surrender it. In paragraph two, there is a reference to usurpations and abuses and instructions on how to remedy such situations. They do not mention anything about a vote as an idiot did a few years ago when he claimed the vote was the way to avoid dictatorship. It seems he doesn’t know how Hitler came to power or Chavez in Venezuela; damn his filthy soul.
That is big GOVERNMENT does it takes away rights NOT given to the government and legalize what the laws say are ILLEGAL …
