Read the Gun ‘Seizure’ Bill Introduced by Democrats That Will Likely Send a Chill Down the Spines of Georgia Gun Owners

Six Democrats in Georgia’s state House of Representatives unveiled a bill on Jan. 11 that would “require seizure” of “certain weaponry and ammunition” that is deemed as contraband, effectively banning “assault weapons” and “large-capacity magazines.”

HB 731, which is sponsored by Mary Margaret Oliver, Carolyn Hugley, Pat Gardiner, Stacey Abrams, Dar’shun Kendrick and Dee Dawkins-Haigler, would amend current law to “prohibit the possession, sale, transport, distribution or use of certain assault weapons, large capacity magazines, armor-piercing bullets, and incendiary .50 caliber bullets.”

Those who do possess either an assault weapon or a large-capacity magazine, as defined in the text of the bill, on July 1, 2016, will need to either modify the weapon to magazine to “render it permanently inoperable or such that it is no longer an assault weapon or large capacity magazine” or give the firearm over to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to be destroyed; gun owners will have an Oct. 31, 2016 deadline to do so.

I agree with some of the text of this proposal. The part about requiring seizure and rendering permanently inoperable. But they have the object of those verbs wrong. The objects should the politicians advocating for such a law. They should arrested and then prosecuted.

Don’t ever let someone get away with telling you that no one wants to take your guns.

    doesn’t that just about sum up that which ails the republic? how cute is that name, and how “cute” is the person that goes by it.

    • It’s interesting to read that well known sentence in context — which makes some even stronger points:

      “What country before, ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure” — Thomas Jefferson, in “In Defence of Rebellions”, letter to Col. Smith, November 13, 1787.

      • This is why Jefferson has been the target of smear campaigns for over 100 years. See David Barton’s new book. The enemies of America know that to destroy America, they must destroy the memory of Jefferson’s life and writings.

    These people piss me off to an extent that can’t be described.

    It will have to suffice to say that they can go to hell and that it would be best for all concerned that they abandon these fantasies.

    Someone might get injured.

    • Right.

      To paraphrase a meme going around the Interwebz: If I have 10 guns, and the GA government passes a law forcing me to surrender 8 of them, how many will I have left? That’s right: 10.

  4. I can see this crap being brought up in New York, or the People’s Demokratik Republik of Kollyvornia, but Georgia??? Seriously???

  5. The safe act isn’t working in NY it won’t work in Georgia. The safe act only had about 4,000 items turned in ( speculation is mostly broken magazines) so it is a joke. There are more semi automatic rifles than ever in NY and they are in the hands of patriots. The fuse is burning were just waiting for the bang. Sic Semper Tyrannis, and keep your powder dry.
