    Read ‘Em and Weep: 80 Civilian Disarmament Bills (Not Including All the Other Ones)



    California’s contracostatimes.com has taken a tally of civilian disarmament bills at the federal and Golden State level. According to their count Uncle Sam’s contemplating 13 gun ban bills in the Senate and 40 (yes 40) pieces of firearms-related legislation in the House. Golden State gun owners are staring down the barrel of 12 gun control bills in the Senate and 14 in the General Assembly. Make the jump for the list–which does not include New York’s SAFE Act or the dozens of bills being mooted in Connecticut, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Washington and elsewhere. Fasten your metaphorical seat belts; this is going to get rough . . .

    Some of those are pretty honorable... Well sorry only a few of them. Hows this for a Gun Law "A well regulated malitia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

    We can call it the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution cemented as a human right December 15th, 1791 in the very document it was meant to defend.

    Or we could just allow temporary politicians to impose laws upon us by using "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States" which "are reserved to the States respectively or to the People." Hey we should make that one of them too...
