All Hands On Deck!: Missouri Democrats Call For Gun Confiscation - Gives Gun Owners 90 Days To Turn In Weapons



Thursday, February 14, 2013

Democrats around the country are in a race to destroy the Second Amendment and the latest outrage is going down in Missouri.

Democrats Rory Ellinger and Jill Schupp have introduced House Bill 545, a law that with the stroke of a pen will turn thousands of law-abiding Missourians into class C felons. It will ban the possession, sale, transfer or manufacture of semi-automatic rifles and magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds.

The law is in effect de facto confiscation demanding the “surrender” of firearms to the government.

“The bill is yet more evidence that federal and state governments are now pulling out all stops short of door-to-door confiscation in their coordinated effort to disarm the American people,” we reported at the time.

In Missouri, the Republicans have a super majority

in the house and senate.

It will never happen, but it does show you what kind of nuts the Democrats are.

Missouri is a state made up of two distinct populations

One population is St Louis/Kansas City. It is urban, corrupt, and liberal Democrat.

The other population is the rest of the state. It is small-town,conservative (split between neo and libertarian), and heavily Republican.

Even though the urban areas occupy a small land mass, they often determine the politics of the entire state. This proposal may not pass, but it might be a closer vote than you might think.

That Might Go Over

in St Louis but not in SOUTHERN Missouri. Won't happen! Not unless they tear the state apart like in the Uncivil war!

Coordinating this type of liberty activism is one of the

BEST uses of DailyPaul, imo. It's informal enough that we don't feel harassed by organizers, but yet VISIBLE and informative enough for us to act promptly and massively.

Thanks for the heads up, E!

To put your minds at ease, here is part of an email

received by me just minutes ago from my Missouri State Representative, Robert Ross:

In only the second day since filing, I have already received an overwhelming response from my constituents, asking me to oppose HB545, which is another anti-gun/rights related, 2nd Amendment infrigement;- although this proposal comes from within our state rather than from the Federal Government. To better understand my position on this bill and on this issue, allow me to quote Senator Nieves, who's opinion I share:

"To all my 2nd Amendment supporting friends: Let me make this perfectly and abundantly clear... The Dems in BOTH the Missouri House & Senate have, and will likely continue, to file Anti-Gun Legislation. Here's the Good News - I am the chairman of the committee in the senate to which ALL gun bills are sent!! ALL Gun Bills, good or bad, must go through me!! I assure you, I promise you, all these Anti-Gun Bills are dead, as in D E A D - Dead!! ALL - ALL - ALL the Anti-Gun Bills are DEAD!"

I couldn't have put it better myself. I believe in a "ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY" relating to any infringements on our 2nd Amendment rights.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

The Honorable Mr. Ross...

is TRULY Honorable!

Robert Ross is my MAN!

This bill

won't pass and even if it did there are too many that won't comply. If the anti gunners want a war...they will surely get one on this issue. I am starting to think..maybe they do want a war. They will lose this one.

gun control

I'm surprised that second amendment supporters aren't using Obama's "Fast and Furious" gun running program to demonstrate the President's double standard when it comes to gun control/public safety. ATF supervisors, a US Attorney, and members of the DOJ knowingly allowed 2500 firearms, including AK 47's and 50 caliber rifles, to walk into the hands of drug cartel members. One of those weapons was used to murder U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Agent Forcelli, an ATF whistleblower, testified before Congress and said "we weren't giving guns to people who were hunting bear, we were giving guns to people who were killing other people." You can find video clips of the hearing in my post on gun control. Here's the link:

Going nowhere

'Loesch says, the proposal has very little chance of becoming law since Republicans hold a super-majority in the state legislature.

'“The bill has only been introduced and read twice; it’s a go-nowhere bill but designed, I think, to test the waters as we’ve seen numerous bills of similar sort introduced in other states,” she added before posting the contact information of the Democrats proposing the measure.'

Good Work!!

Thanks for posting pal!

It sounds like they are proposing

extremely outrageous legislation up front and then they will tone it down to get what they actually wanted in the first place.

Some form of gun control that is logistically managelable and can be done without an uproar from the masses.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

This is news that can be used

to counter the disinformation put out that the gun control drones don't wish to impose confiscation. Although the popular consensus is that it has a snowballs chance in hell of ever passing it would be wise to keep an eye on these clowns that spew out such garbage. They have a plan/list and they're checking it twice.
Edit....What would occur if this law was enacted and someone was passing through or over the state delivering the prohibited items to another state? You have interstate commerce involved here.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Missouri resident here HELP!

So far since I have found out I have been posting the article daily on my facebook. I thought since 90% of my friends are Missouri residents I will keep posting it. I have noticed my posts have started being shared among them. Some just don't believe it will happen. I have contacted my house and senate rep and waiting for their response. I am telling everyone I see.....I don't know what else to do what else can I do???? Any ideas? Can I do more?

Call your sherriff

Ask him if he would be willing to help defy this law if it were passed as it is clearly unconstitutional. If he agrees ask if there is anything that could be done by the citizens to help his office in such an event, let him know the people will stand behind him. Ask him to release a public statement to that effect. If he is non-commital then get your friends together and picket the sherriffs office, and let the local newspaper know you are there. Let him know the bad press will continue until he either agrees to protect your rights, or until you elect a replacement who will. Nothing gets an elected official to see the light like feeling a little heat.

Be very careful listening to the Sheriff

in your county. In South Carolina, the State AG is on record:

“SC Attorney General: Come Get The Guns!”


This means that an agent could come to your home, break into your home, ransack the place, seize anything, all without a warrant and he would be immune from state prosecution or even interference with his ransacking.


If people think some of these Sheriff's (not all) are telling you what you want to hear, remember, you are responsible for your safety and combating a federal gun grab. When the rubber hits the road, you are the defense, you will be the only barrier to out of control federal agents. I would assume from the beginning state employees aren't going to come to your defense.

Isn't this Lindsay Graham territory? Keep in mind who he is...

This is total BULL CRAP

I know MANY democrats that support the second amendment, and who are working as hard as republicans (whatever) to stop this further infringement on our liberty. So don't be fooled by the establishment divide and rule bologna. And don't buy into more of the same.


Until those alleged "good" Democrats start shunning these

traitors like the pariahs they are, and until they start demanding their resignations publicly for being unfit to represent a free people, I'm not buying your claim.

If good men "do nothing" and allow evil to advance, then they are NOT by definition "good men."

This is a distraction

We have a veto proof majority in both chambers in MO and the liberty movement took the state GOP chair this round. MO needs to focus on gold/silver as legal tender and nullification issues. This bill will not go anywhere.

It's the compromise you should be worried about.

The GOP and NRA are notorious for selling the farm while you're not looking because you think stealing it out right is not possible.

Simply disobey.

This crap is going to escalate soon and the rounds will be flying.

Technically, the states

Technically, the states cannot restrict firearms because of the militia act of 1792. It requires every male to have a musket or rifle and ammunition. Any state law would violate that act. That act is perfectly constitutional and thus is the supreme law - it had no sunset provision and has not been repealed.

That is one way to go about it but better to simply defer to natural right.

The world is watching. What

The world is watching. What will the Americans do?

Damned Idiots have they forgotten

The Missouri/Kansas War of 1854. This ain't no time to be confiscating guns.
