    I got this in an email, I am not sure what the impact will be on
    Virginians, but I thought I would pass it on. You could make this
    your shopping list for the next gun show. If I read the proposed
    bill correctly, we could loose all Glocks and SIGS because they
    are carried by federal agents.

    We knew it would be coming, the framework for legislation is
    always laid, and the Democrats have the votes to pass anything they want
    to impose upon us. They really do not believe you need anything more
    than a brick to defend your home and family. Look at the list and see
    how many you own. Remember, it is registration, then confiscation. It
    has happened in the UK, in Australia, in Europe, in China, and what they
    have found is that for some reason the criminals do not turn in their
    weapons, but will know that you did. Please send this to everyone you
    can. It will come up for a vote, and it might even be a secret vote if
    Madame Pelosi has her way, and then it will be a done deal.
    ...thanks to all of those who voted Democrat in the last election
    …….The Savior and his cronies are bringing “Change” to Socialism …..

    Right to own a gun Remember, The first step in establishing a
    dictatorship is to disarm the citizens.

    Subject: Gun Law Update by Alan Korwin, Democrats have already leaked a
    gun-ban list. Forward or send to every gun owner you know...Gun Law
    Update by Alan Korwin, Author Gun Laws of America. Jan. 5, 2008.
    Gun-ban list proposed. Slipping below the radar (or under the short-term
    memory cap), the Democrats have already leaked a gun-ban list, even
    under the Bush administration when they knew full well it had no chance
    of passage (HR 1022, 110th Congress) It serves as a framework for the
    new list the Brady's plan to introduce shortly. I have an outline of
    the Brady's current plans and targets of opportunity, It's horrific.
    They're going after the courts, regulatory agencies, firearms dealers
    and statutes in an all out effort to restrict we the people. They've
    made little mention of criminals. Now more than ever, attention to the
    entire Bill of Rights is critical. Gun bans will impact our freedoms
    under search and seizure, due process, confiscated property, states'
    rights, free speech, right to assemble and more, in addition to the
    Second Amendment. The Democrats current gun-ban-list proposal (final
    list will be worse):

    A semiautomatic rifle that accepts a detachable magazine and has:

    (i) a folding or telescoping stock,
    (ii) a threaded barrel,
    (iii) a pistol grip (which includes ANYTHING that can serve as a
    grip, see below),
    (iv) a forward grip; or a barrel shroud.

    Any semiautomatic rifle with a fixed magazine that can accept more than
    10 rounds (except tubular magazine .22 rim fire rifles).

    A semiautomatic pistol that has the ability to accept a detachable
    magazine, and has:

    (i) a second pistol grip,
    (ii) a threaded barrel,
    (iii) a barrel shroud or
    (iv) can accept a detachable magazine outside of the pistol grip,
    and
    (v) a semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that can accept
    more than 10 rounds.

    A semiautomatic shotgun with:

    (i) a folding or telescoping stock,
    (ii) a pistol grip (see definition below),
    (iii) the ability to accept a detachable magazine or a fixed
    magazine capacity of more than 5 rounds, and
    (iv) a shotgun with a revolving cylinder.

    Frames or receivers for the above are included, along with conversion
    kits.

    Attorney General gets carte blanche to ban guns at will:

    Under the proposal, the U.S. Attorney General can add any "semiautomatic
    rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement
    use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not
    particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the
    Attorney General." Note that Obama's pick for this office (Eric Holder,
    confirmation hearing set for Jan. 15) wrote a brief in the Heller case
    supporting the position that you have no right to have a working firearm
    in your own home.

    In making this determination, the bill says, "there shall be a
    rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United
    States military or any federal law enforcement agency is not
    particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and a firearm shall not be
    determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely
    because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event." In plain
    English this means that ANY firearm ever obtained by federal officers or
    the military is not suitable for the public.

    The last part is particularly clever, stating that a firearm doesn't
    have a sporting purpose just because it can be used for sporting purpose
    -- is that devious or what? And of course, "sporting purpose" is a
    rights infringement with no constitutional or historical support
    whatsoever, invented by domestic enemies of the right to keep and bear
    arms to further their cause of disarming the innocent.
