9 Republicans Co-Sponsoring More Gun Control for Law-Abiding Americans

This article comes from Breitbart.com

by AWR Hawkins

Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) introduced gun control aimed at law-abiding Americans on Tuesday. His bill has nine Republican co-sponsors, which means nine Republicans are willing to punish every law-abiding American for the behavior of one criminal in Las Vegas.

And they are doing all this to ban bump stocks, a product the ATF evaluated and approved in 2010.

The ATF approved the stocks because they are accessories for semiautomatics rather than conversion devices that turn semiautomatics into fully automatic weapons. Curbelo’s bill gets around the ATF’s approval by explicitly banning certain accessories for AR-15s, even if those accessories “[do] not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machine gun.”

And like the Democrat bill–put forward by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)–Curbelo’s bill is already broader than bump stocks alone. In other words, it is a ban that will keep on giving for the Democrats and other gun control proponents.

Here are the nine Republicans who are co-sponsoring Curbelo’s bill:

Rep. Peter King (R-NY)
Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ)
Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-PA)
Rep, Ed Royce (R-CA)
Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ)
Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN)
Rep. Ryan Costello (R-PA)
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL)
Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA)
The push to ban bump stocks is especially rich in light of the fact that using the devices probably made the Vegas attacker less effective than he would have been without them. After all, bump stocks are made for novelty rather than precision. For this reason, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class special forces soldier Tony Cowden suggests the Vegas attacker could have been deadlier if he had shot slower with a rifle not outfitted with a bump stock.

    What is a “Law Abiding American?”

    For each of these Republican Sponsors, there are 20 Republicans who support their efforts. They need to see the light of day as well.

    Second Amendment Explained;
    Ralph was going to the game. He brought along his baseball, his glove and his bat.
    What does the “ ,” mean in that sentence? It means there is a pause in the sentence and also a comma replaces the un-necessary or repetitive use of the word “and”. This is proper English grammar!
    * So then; “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
    The first comma is a pause in the sentence.
    The second comma means AND the right of the PEOPLE to keep and Bear Arms!
    The third comma is another pause.

    “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State the right of the people to keep and bear Arms,..” just doesn’t make any sense without the commas, also known as AND.
    * The comma clarifies that it does Not mean the right of the militia to keep and bear arms it means the people’s right to keep and bear arms.
    * Also, nowhere does the second amendment say anything that it is just for hunting, it doesn’t even mention hunting.
    When the Second Amendment was written in 1787, ALL GUNS WERE MILITARY STYLE!
    * The definition of a “MILITIA” in September 17, 1787 according to the Oxford New English Dictionary when the “Bill of rights” was ratified is a Citizen militia, a group of local people, not a government controlled federal army. The founders warned against a federal army getting to big as in the British Red Coats. Read The Federalist Papers # 28 by Alexander Hamilton and #46 by James Madison.
    * “ Well Regulated” meant the Well trained and prepared according to common speech of the time. Read The Federalist Papers # 28 by Alexander Hamilton and #46 by James Madison.

    * “..shall not be infringed” means congress cannot alter or remove it! THERE IS NO CONGRESSIONAL OR EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY TO ALTER THE CONSTITUTION, LEAST OF ALL THE BILL OF RIGHTS WHICH ONLY THE PEOPLE CAN EDIT! If there was legal standing or authority, obama and the democrat controlled congress of 2009-2010 would have done so!

    “ A Free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of Independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” George Washington 1787

    So they’re not taking our guns huh? HR3999 is not a bill outlawing “BUMPSTOCKS” – This is a bill that outlaws the manufacture, possession, or transfer of any part or combination of parts of a SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLE – not just those evil looking AR15 type rifles – ALL SEMI-AUTOMATIC RIFLES – and not only parts that “increase the rate of fire” – parts that serve “OTHER PURPOSES” as well. This Bill effectively repeals the Second Amendment by transforming it from an uninfringed right to EFFECTIVE ARMS THAT ENABLE THE CAPABILITY OF KEEPING SECURE OUR FREEDOMS AND SAFETY – into a limited “allowance” of low capacity sporting arms.

    From house.gov
    H.R.3999 – To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit the manufacture, possession, or transfer of any part or combination of parts that is designed and functions to increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle but does not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machinegun, and for other purposes.
    AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES
    prohibit the manufacture, possession, or transfer of any part or combination of parts, of a semiautomatic rifle, for ANY AND ALL purposes.
    That’s what this REALLY says.
    and for other purposes. . . . . like building a rifle . . . replacing broken or worn parts of a rifle.
    Increases the rate and/or other PURPOSES.
    This isn’t about bump stocks – this is about outlawing semi-automatic rifles – ALL semi-automatic rifles!
    (If a manufacturer can not manufacture semi-auto parts to increase rate-of-fire or OTHER PURPOSES (LIKE BUILDING A RIFLE TO SELL) – then a manufacturer can’t assemble rifles to sell – see ya – they’re gone.)
    No semi-auto parts – no no semi-auto rifles = no Second Amendment.
    This Bill is a declaration of war on American Freedom

    These idiot republicans and democrats will keep pushing their stupid gun control agenda that has nothing to do with keeping us safe, but less safe. If they keep it up we will end up in a armed revolt or civil war.
