High-Capacity Magazines Bill To Be Introduced By Democrats On First Day Of Congressional Session

WASHINGTON — House Democrats will introduce legislation to ban the production of high-capacity magazines on the first day of the next congressional session, the office of Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), one of the lawmakers sponsoring the bill, told The Huffington Post.

The Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act will mirror a failed bill introduced during the 112th Congress. Its authors hope that in the wake of the shooting deaths of 20 first grade students in Newtown, Conn., there will be heightened political urgency to act when it is reintroduced on Jan. 3.

Backed by DeGette and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), the legislation has gained a wave of Democratic co-sponsors since the shooting, which also claimed the lives of 7 adults. But few Republicans have come forward to offer their support. Even more critical to the bill’s political prospects, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has not indicated whether he will allow it to come to the floor for a vote.

    It is like this, if requirements such as high capacity magazines or any semi-automatic weapons are going to be banned, then, Hollywood has got to give up their “action” flicks. No guns, no shooting, no westerns, a censorship of foreign films, no advertisements, etc. Furthermore, if Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Korea – North and South, Mexicans, well let’s just say the entire World will also have to give up these kinds of weapons or magazines. If you take away the Right of the American people to defend themselves, we may be invaded by another country. We all know that the only reason Japan did not go further up the coast from Hawaii during WWII, was because they knew the citizens were armed. And, thirdly, another objective of the 2nd Amendment was to ensure that the People could not fall under tyranny. And, it looks to me like, maybe, it has already gone too far – we are already under a system of government whereby the Executive Branch has way too much Power. This Country was based on a Balance of Powers. I call for his impeachment and there are so many examples of high crimes and misdeamnors, it should not be a problem. For those folks that do not heed the call, we will lose Freedoms and our Country. I will not live with a government that can and will put citizens in jail for preaching on the sidewalk – or drinking 16 ounce Cokes. NO. NO. NO. I fight Destruction and for all that is good. I have no fear as I am not alone. I am not “into” guns, never have, but, I do see the significance of this party trying to remove it. There was nothing anybody could have done to have prevented that young man from killing. It could have been a bomb, or poison, etc. Responsible people lock up their guns, or if they have a teenager or child with serious mental issues, you remove them from the environment, or house. The bill that is being drafted will not curb this. How many people died in Chicago last year due to juveniles shooting guns – 400 and more – one city. Why are we not worried about preventing that problem? There are a lot of juveniles with problems – be it broken homes, missing parents, etc. We have bigger fish to fry. Our (Marxist, Socialist, or Communist) government appears to be wanting to seize power from the People. And, if we are so worried about guns – why and how did “Fast and Furious” even occur? Our Justice Department, maybe even the President have already killed with that program. This bill will allow only the government to have them. If that is not a RED FLAG to all, I don’t know what else would be. NO. NO. NO. Go back and check your history starting in the 1930’s – in Germany. WAKE-UP FOLKS. They have been removing guns and pieces of guns and types of guns for decades – piece by piece, we freely give-up our Freedoms.
