They are coming for everything

The democrats, led by Diane Feinstein are coming for everything firearm related. this bill proposes to not only coe after any weapon with a magazine capacity larger than ten rounds, but it also will supposedly 'grandfather' in all existing firearms at the time the law is adopted. "Provided those weapons are registered."

Registration is the holy grail of the anti gun factions in America and globally. they realize that registration is the last major step right before confiscation. The bottom line, the government doesn't know how many weapons exist in America or who they are owned by, but that all changes if this legislation passes. And just as assuredly that the sun comes up tomorrow, once registration of weapons is the law, it will be less than five years past that date before they come to get them.

Stay informed

In January, Senator Feinstein will introduce a bill to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devises.
