GATEWAY PUNDIT

Missouri Democrats introduced an anti-gun bill which would turn law-abiding firearm owners into criminals. They will have 90 days to turn in their guns if the legislation is passed.

 

Here’s part of the Democratic proposal in Missouri:

4. Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution:

(1) Remove the assault weapon or large capacity magazine from the state of Missouri;

(2) Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable; or

(3) Surrender the assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction, subject to specific agency regulations.

5. Unlawful manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of an assault weapon or a large capacity magazine is a class C felony.

UPDATE: It’s not just Missouri…

    they want to take away our guns so we cannot do anything about pelosi’s refusal to take a pay cut:

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers’ jobs.
    “I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.”

    A Democrat assault weapon is apparently a 12-inch kitchen knife (or a two-incher inserted six times).

    See earlier post.

    Let the people vote.
    I don’t think this kind of idiotic legislation proposal will have any effect except to keep the idiotic legislator who proposed it busy so he can’t do harm elsewhere.

    Exhibit A: My fist.
    Exhibit B: A democrat.

    2)

    Typical democrat negotiation ploy. Propose something completely unreasonable and then see if republicans are stupid enough to split the difference, e.g. agree to mag limits or something similarly stupid and pointless.

    Here’s what the GOP in the MO legislature should do: Propose automatic CCW privileges to all law abiding people 18 or older with no need to get a permit from the local sheriff. Don’t play the democrat’s game. Punish them with a game of your own.

    How does a red state even have these retards in office? Have they bothered to check on how many hard working Missourians will be out of work when they have to close one of the finest AR manufacturers in the country down?

    Send those Democrap legislators out to personally go house to house in order to confiscate these legally acquired firearms.
    They deserve to receive all the credit for their brilliant legislation.

    And since when did MO become a haven for shitheads ?

    This is a BS PR move by the Dems. It isn’t even a go big, settle small gambit as the Republicans control (by 2/3′s majority) both houses in the state. The Governor may be a Dem (Jay Nixon) but is more conservative in many ways then the Dems want.
