    Usual suspects Shumer, Lautenburg, Boxer, Feinstein, and Gillibrand have a proposed an amendment to the Cyber Security bill.
    Unlike the old "assault weapons" law this one bans "possession".

    http://thehill.com/video/senate/240657-cybersecurity-bill-includes-gun-control-measure

    The amendment would make it illegal to transfer or possess "large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition".

    I'd like to think this is just grandstanding and will not get any traction in an election year, but it is "sensible" and all.

    We need to get the word to our Congress critters: don't even f#$@in' THINK about this.

    Actually, if you read it, currently possessed magazines can still be possessed, but not transferred (not that this makes the law any better). It is pretty much DOA since it is an election year, but nonetheless, letters should be sent to congressmen and congresswomen letting them know what you think of this back-handed way of trying to pass their agenda that no one wants.

    Will never pass. The last AWB burned a scar into the minds of so many Dems.

    I agree but don't think for a minute that they won't try it again. Liberals are stupid like that. They never learn for their mistakes. They just blame someone else for it. Like Bush. :whistling:

    So many miss 1 simple idea. In a word, "enthusiast". Want another? "Hobby". How about "skill"?

    Why is someone who simply likes a specific item considered a whack job? Are car collectors insane? Stamp collectors? I'm really scared of that person that has 500 Beanie Babys. 'But why does someone need 6000 rnds of ammo?' clearly comes from some chicken scratch individual who never sent 100rnds down the range. How fast can you use 100 in practice? Faster than you wanted! Forget Aurora, Columbine, Virginia. It has NOTHING to do with the US citizen, our history, our 2A. How many legit gun owners simply killed sombody this week? How many defended home and hearth? It never fails to amaze how quickly our society throws the baby out with the bath water every time 1 out 350,000,000 people goes out of tune. Now we're all "out there"? Only if we remain silent.

    A nut-job can do more damage with two five gallon cans of gasoline and a match than the nut-job did with all his guns ammo and body-armor. And it would be cheaper and more easily obtained. But the MORONS are too emotional about guns to even realize that. Limiting magazine capacity will save lives. :rofl: Anyone want to buy a bridge. :upeyes:

    Re: OP. If for no other reason, this is all the reason I need to never vote for a demokrat regardless of who they might be, regardless of how conservative they might act, etc.

    I don't trust anyone that wants to "regulate" my "right". That is the SINGLE most IMPORTANT THING to conciser when considering someone for political office.

    I sent an email to my Senators and Rep. If we flood our politicians with emails about our 2nd amendment rights they might listen.

    The vote was today. It did not pass (for many reasons).
