Anyone want some tea? I hear there is going to be a tea party soon...

Assault Weapons Ban Reauthorization Act of 2008 (Introduced in House by the Democrats)

Among the evil "assault weapons" they are trying to blacklist this time:

Browning BAR Mark II Safari Semi-Auto Rifle and Remington 7400 - purely hunting purpose guns

All-American legends: lever-action Western-style hunting rifles like Browning 1886, 81 BLR, Winchester 1894, Henry, Marlin, Rossi :

Pretty much all the bolt-action hunting or target shooting rifles like Remington 700, Howa 1500, Ruger M77, Sako, Winchester, Savage...the list is just too long to fit on a single blog page.

Single-Shot centerfire copies of 1800's antique blackpowder rifles like Shiloh-Sharps and Navy Arms

Safari hunting double barrel rifles like Merkel or Beretta Model 455 SxS

Pretty much all .22 cal, empty can-popping rimfire rifles that you can imagine (everything from the Henry lever gun and ending with Olympic target and competition models, bolt action and semiauto -the list is just too long to post)

Shotguns: they want to ban all of them. Hunting, clay shooting, home defense. Semiauto, double barrel, pumps, single shot, you name it.

Is it clear now what the liberal Democreeps want it is not "sensible gun laws", but British-style total gun confiscation and population control?

May God protect America's right to defend herself and keep her God fearing citizens armed.

Let 'em come. They can take my guns, but first they'll have to take the ammo. One round at a time. Pointy end first. At 2800 feet per seccond.

Molon Labe!

Well, we knew this was coming, we just didn't expect them to do it right before an Election, and, two days before the decision in DC vs Heller comes down.

If they miss outlawing your weapon, never fear, they'll outlaw the Ammunition.

For sure, they'll come for my Marlin 30-30, and, like you say, they'll get it Ammunition first, one round at a time, then they'll get the 9mm, the .40S&W, the 45 Colt, and, I've got just tons of .22 around.

Um....could we trouble you for a link there, specifically a link to the text in the bill that calls for the outlawing of those bolt action and lever action rifles?
