Latest legislative maneuvers. Banning "Assault Magazines."

Latest from David Codrea: "Coalition sends open letter opposing gun ban to Congress."
No exact language from a bill yet but here's the announcement: "Reps. DeGette and McCarthy Introduce Bill to Ban High-Capacity Assault Magazines."
The High Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act, as the bill is formally known, bans the sale or transfer of ammunition magazines holding more than 10 rounds. Such a standard was federal law between 1994 and 2004, when the assault weapons ban was in effect, and it is state law in many parts of the United States.
Note that it goes further than the AWB of '94 by banning the "sale or transfer" of existing magazines. Good luck enforcing that one, collectivist bitches. (Commentary on same found at Monderno.)

In my opinion this is nothing but pure,collaborative political "Theatre", by the repubs and dems working off of a "Script". Feinstein's Bill goes through the senate,then goes over to the House where the "Assault Magazine" Bill is argued about publicly bringing attention to the subject of so-called "Assault Weapon's" ( Really just semi-auto Firearms ). Giving the dems a Forum to bring to attention the subject of semi-auto's and there supposed "Danger", is what this is really all about.

The dems will then pretend to "cave" in and then accept "Just" the Banning of High capacity magazines. But on the way out the door,they will issue us a Dire warning about how they are not happy with the deal,but they don't have enough votes to get the full semi-auto Ban they would like. Then when they wrongly think we are lulled to sleep, Obama comes in,with one of his patented "False Flag" operations. This "False Flag though will be the "Mother-of-All" False Flags with semi-auto's. This will not so coincidentally take place within one month of the High capacity magazine Ban and will Give Obama a perfect excuse to issue a "Can't Wait" executive Order Banning semi-auto's,now called "Assault Weapon's. Obama will say, "We tried it the other sides way but looked what happened. In good conscience i have to Act,before another sensless slaughter takes place". Even though he and his Administration was probably behind Aurora,Colorado. The Sikh Temple in Wisconsin and the Sandy Hook Slaughter's.

It still Ain't gonna matter,as we will not turn our Firearms in or report to an ATF Registering station,to be treated like the Jews were, when they were being Registered,prior to being deported to the Death camps in World War 2!

Oh yes, because as always criminals obey the law, and are magically restricted by it...

Not to mention that without any significant resistance, swapping magazines out is hardly difficult.

Incidentially, MKV, are you going to the gunshow this weekend?

It's only an assault magazine if I bonk you on the head with it or try to cut you with the feed lips. Otherwise it's just a magazine.

FWIW, some of my historic stuff that's worth more than 200 buck debit cards or sneakers is basically impossible to run without magazines and they never made 10 rounders, but I could buy 100 rounders if the number 30 bothers them...
