  • Ohio senators introduce bill to ban assault rifles

    Two Ohio State Senators have put forward legislation in light of recent school shootings and threats.

    Senator Michael Skindell (D–Lakewood) and Senator Charleta B. Tavares (D-Columbus) introduced Senate Bill 260, which looks to establish an assault weapons ban throughout the state of Ohio.

    The legislation specifically would make it a felony of the fifth degree for possessing or acquiring an assault weapon.

    Under the bill, an "assault weapon" is an automatic firearm or semi-automatic firearm capable of accepting a detachable magazine with the capacity of accepting ten or more cartridges and a semi-automatic firearm with a fixed magazine with the capacity of accepting ten or more cartridges.

    So they've already arrested a bunch of fools up here in NH who thought it would be funny to get a day off school. Seems threats aren't much of a threat. For the others... well how about a law making it illegal to murder kids? Oh wait, they already have one. How about making it illegal to have a gun in school? Oh wait, I don't know for sure, but I'll bet the schools are already designated as gun-free-so-kill-as-many-as-you-want-'cuz-there's-no-one-that-can-shoot-back zones. Next? We'll ban all those nasty assault weapons, even though by definition an assault weapon is select-fire and the perp was using a civilian version that can't run full-auto. Hmmm... seems to me that the toothpaste is already out of the tube and can't get put back in. But I am sure legislators, full of emotion and/or goaded by voters even more full of emotion and both devoid of objective thinking capacity, will push for all kinds of bans. And there will surely be foolish civilians who are law abiding and will happily remove from themselves any ability to protect themselves or resist tyrannical government. Do they really think the nut jobs who do these kinds of shootings will voluntarily disarm themselves? Seriously?

    With the insanity of the latest financial action in congress that removes all limits on borrowing, the jobs market still in the crapper, and the general tax-and-spend foolishness abundant at all levels of government, better figure that we have 8 years or less. Buy gold or silver and hang on. It's going to become a crazy ride.
