I’d rather stop the spread of Senator ‘I’ve worked hard for that title’ Dianne Feinstein.

Actually, the other moron California senator, Barbara Boxer, said that.

Well, not actually turn them over. They would put in place a “buy-back”(?) whereby they would give you a wallyworld voucher or a bag of groceries or a gift card, making it well worth the thousands you spent in the first place. Of course you didn’t buy from them so I’m still kinda wondering about the “hole” buy-back thing. (Maybe john kerry will apologize for us being to stupid to understand what they meant.) Send df an email by using a zip code from her area and it will go through. Not that she would pay any attention to it. The gun show in Reno this past weekend (12/22-23) was jam packed with folks. Law abiding folks!

“This has little chance of passing...”

Agreed.

It won’t get past the Senate (45R to 55D), let alone the House.

What it IS, is the first salvo to drum up public interest.

However, the machinations over the ‘fiscal cliff’ and resultant outcome (majority of middle class families will be $200-400+ poorer each month), will push this issue to the back-burner.

so black in color would be one, right?

Good question, it wouldn't surprise me if it was though.

NFA kind of reminds me of two genius plans hatched by liberal idiots, the California SKS confiscation (fail) and the Canadian long gun registration (fail and if my memory serves me correctly the Indian tribes paid no attention to this nonsense and then this spread to the other serfs)

As for the NFA and select fire I’m pretty sure that the ATF has a hard time keeping up with deaths of holders, imagine keeping up with millions of dying “naughty gun” holders. Reminds me of a story told to me, a nice old lady shows up at a gun shop with an MP-40, a real one. Well it seems her deceased husband never bothered to transfer it and so in the end the machine gun went to a museum.

Chicago the Daley crooks hatched a plan to go after lapsed FOID card holders so the gun squad picked a white ethnic name out of the hat (very political) and raided an 80 year old man’s house. That nonsense lasted exactly once.

The only NFA gun I want and will pay the tithe for now is the SAW. So my counter offer to Feinswine no NFA for semis and you open up the select fire registration. (think of the tax revenue)

This is the nail in the coffin.

Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
Background check of owner and any transferee;
Type and serial number of the firearm;
Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

I’m confused. Won’t the same bill need to go through the House before it can be signed into law by the president?

How can this bill be passed without going through the, GOP controlled, House?

Thank you for the correction.

But in my defense, it’s hard to categorize and organize truly stupid remarks, and all libtards look alike to me.

Adding semi-autos to the NFA registry would probably include the usual tax stamp as part of the "grandfathering" process.

There is more concentrated evil in the Senate than in any number of school shootings, combined.

If this actually passes, good luck trying to enforce it.

I don’t recall getting fingerprinted when I purchased my firearms.

Maybe I did get fingerprinted, but I don’t recall it.

A little too much big brother if you ask me.

“Senator ‘I’ve worked hard for that title’ “

I think you mean Boxer, when demanding the Senator title instead of Ma’am from a Military officer at a senate hearing. (And he continued with Ma’am).

But I can understand how you could confuse the two.

Maybe I’m wrong, but it seems to me it was written like this to make sure it fails. There is no way in hell a bill like this would ever pass and she knows it. My guess is they really don’t have the political capitol to spend on gun control right now and this is their way of just shutting up the antagonists... who knows

Not to mention completely unconstitutional.

I remember back in the in California you had to show ID and give a finger print just to buy ammo.

Been here in Vegas for about 12 years now and there is none of that commie crap here.

Don't miss Cali at all.
