  • 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.

    Cheers,

    PH

      As we all know and as has already been proven, these bitches that want to outlaw citizen possession of semi-auto rifles and normal capacity magazines are not trying to save lives as they falsely claim. They are trying to create a nation of docile, disarmed sheep that they can rule over with impunity. This whole thing is about corrupt, lawless politicians who want and demand absolute power with no accountability to the people.

      Truth be told, every lawful American citizen ought to have 2-3 scoped bolt action rifles, half a dozen select fire AR-15s, 100-200 30 round magazines and 10,000-20,000 rounds of ammunition in their homes. That would put the balance of power where the Founders intended it to be: In the hands of the people.

      Tench Coxe - the delegate from PA who was present at the convention that produced the U.S. Constitution said:

      "As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms."

      "Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? ...Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and EVERY other terrible implement of the soldier, are the BIRTHRIGHT of an American.... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people."
      "There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights." - Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler, USMC

      "The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed." - Thomas Jefferson
