    It's time once again. Call and email your Representatives and Senators! Get ready for more. This is simply the first of many threats.

    Elections actually do have consequences. With the Democratic sweep of the house, they wasted no time in proposing Draconian anti-second Amendment legislation.

    It was introduced by Frank Pallone Jr. Sponsor. Representative for New Jersey's 6th congressional district. Democrat. No surprise there.

    A lot of my clients and friends tell me that we don't have anything to worry about because we hold the Senate and President Trump sits in the White House.

    I constantly have to remind them that it doesn't take too many turncoat Republicans to flip and pass a bill like this and put it on the president's desk. We should all remember that President Trump supported the 1994 and later the 2004 assault weapons ban and Democratic gun control not so many years ago.

    I have been listening to people in the gun community tell me for years not to worry because the Democrats and Anti-2A groups are not "coming for your guns". These statements and beliefs are factualky i correct because the Democrats and the anti-second amendment groups have come out and plainly said that their goal is the confiscation of all civilian owned firearms.

    Take the time to actually read this proposed bill. It is far reaching. It would basically gut the entire firearms industry. Most people are very tempted to say that it's not as bad as we are making it out. That it doesn't really ban all that stuff. Well let's look at what this bill actually does.

    This bill bans, either directly or by implication the following:
    1. Machine gun parts kit
    2. Assault weapons parts kit
    3. The marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications,
    4. Prohibition of advertising do-it-yourself assault weapons.
    5. Requires homemade firearms to have serial numbers,
    Other items banned due to the briad definitions in this bill:
    A. Triggers, hammers,
    B. bolt carriers,
    C. springs,
    D. stocks,
    E. bolts,
    F. barrels,
    G. rails
    H. Muzzle brakes and flash hiders
    I. Magazines
    J. 80% lowers and frames
    K. 3D printed firearms and parts

    "the term assault weapon parts kit means any part or combination of parts designed and intended to enable a consumer who possesses all such necessary parts to assemble a semiautomatic assault weapon;

    "the term machinegun parts kitmeans any part or combination of parts designed and intended to enable a consumer who possesses all such necessary parts to assemble a machinegun or convert a firearm into a machinegun;"

    Read and ponder the two definitions above. Let that sink in. Then try and convince yourself that everything, every part, that goes into building a semi-automatic rifle pistol or shotgun would not be affected by this bill.

    The ban on Advertising through any media will be enforced by the Enforcement by the Federal Trade Commission. So the Liberals are bringing in yet another Federal agency to regulate Firearms. Think about the mess that the batfe has made of firearms regulation.

    Democrats continue to push the “assault weapon” narrative. The Modern Semi-automatic sporting rifle and other semi automatic firearms are not assault weapons.

    The use of the term Assault weapon" Is a simple, yet powerful emotional plea. It's effective in deceiving people. Remember, we have let the Democrats take over the language of the Second Amendment and they use their own words to scare moderates into thinking that guns are bad. That is why we NEVER, as gun owners and second amendment supporters, use the word assault weapon unless we're talking about a true machine gun.

    Once again, the anti 2a Democrats are testing the waters and testing our resolve as gun owners and 2nd Amendment supporters.

    They want to see if our Resistance to anti-second Amendment legislation has wavered after all these years.

    Make sure that you call your congressman and your rivers and let them know that we are aware of what the Democrats are trying to do and that we oppose it and will remember their choices at the next election cycle.

    The title of the bill:

    "To prohibit the sale, acquisition, distribution in commerce, or import into the United States of certain firearm receiver castings or blanks, assault weapon parts kits, and machinegun parts kits and the marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications, to require homemade firearms to have serial numbers, and for other purposes."

    It's also interesting when you look at the effect it will have on all weapons that have been built at home since 1968. They are all going to have to be taken to an FFL and you will have to pay to have a serial number assigned to them

    We have had it good since Clinton left office. Almost 18 years of nothing but gun wins. There is an entire generation of gun owners who have never had to fight to keep the gun rights they currently have.

    After all of these years of firearms rights wins, the apathy that has built up is amazing. I believe that one of the tactics used by the anti-gun groups is to artificially stimulate our response by proposing bills that will not go anywhere. They have done that so many times in the past 15 years that most gun owners reaction is much as we had in 1994. It isn't going to go anywhere so no action is required on my part. That apathy is going to lose us our 2nd Amendment rights.

    I can't see this particular bill moving forward in this session but it is likely to be used as a template for next session in both the national level and in many state legislatures. Bills like this one suck in our outrage and energy which may be better focused on the many smaller bills with less inflammatory language but in combination seek the same end result. Keep informed and keep active.
