Progressive liberal hacks out of St Louis have introduced a bill in Missouri to ban.

http://www.house.mo.gov/billtracking...ro/HB0545I.HTM

The most interesting piece of this -

Quote:
4. Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution:
(1) Remove the assault weapon or large capacity magazine from the state of Missouri;
(2) Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable; or
(3) Surrender the assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction, subject to specific agency regulations.
5. Unlawful manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of an assault weapon or a large capacity magazine is a class C felony.

I saw that - absolutely no pretense at thier disdain for the 2A.

I'm reading that this MO bill will probably not go anywhere - but the cat is out of the bag - these folks want you to effectively disarm.

Here is another story on the proposed MO bill with links in the very short story - the comments are typically lively.

The fundamental transformation may not take place over the next 4 years but the seeds are being sown for a transformation. Crippling debt, ever increasing government dependence. And, if they could, they'd grudgingly allow you at most, a single shot .410 - disabled or locked in the local police station - only available upon application to the proper authorities. Same for a Big Gulp. These folks are crazy.

I like the idea of pulling an end run on the feds, but to fight the feds? Not so much.

Most of the Senate and some of the Congress has been infiltrated...the Executive branch is lost. The Judicial branch is hanging by a thread.

"Populations that the regime subjugates or indoctrinates for long periods are less likely to possess the will required to sustain a prolonged and difficult struggle."

The Regime marches on...

As the OP suggests...IMO, it is the locals that will generally carry the day where the rubber meets the road. YMMV.

Colorado sheriffs are opposed to gun control legislation. It doesn't seem to matter right now though. All the bills passed through the House yesterday.

Missouri state Senator

This guy use to be my neighbor when I lived in MO. He was a state representative and is now a state senator. I don't think the Dems will get their agenda through the MO legislature. If you left out St. Louis and KC MO would be a great state.

http://www.senate.mo.gov/media/13inf...Committees.htm

The next to last paragraph is the pertinent one.

You're in the same boat as most other's Bob... The dense urban centers are dictating what the rest of the State does (or doesn't do). Our version here in the flatlands is the elitist libo-crowd and the entitlement handout metro counties control the State....the rest suffer.

The battles are in small towns, too

Westford, MA is a reasonably small town in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, United States. The population was approximately 21,951 at the 2010 census. The town sits along Route 495, Blue Star Memorial Highway.


Westford Selectmen Withdraw Proposal To Ban Assault Weapons

By Jim Armstrong, WBZ-TV
February 20, 2013 10:10 PM

http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/02/2...sault-weapons/

WESTFORD (CBS) – A thunderous round of applause and a standing ovation greeted the news Wednesday night that a proposed town bylaw to restrict some assault weapons was going to be officially withdrawn.

The overwhelming majority of the close to 400 people who packed a special meeting of the Westford Board of Selectmen opposed the idea.

The man who originally proposed it told the crowd the debate had not gone as he had hoped.

Vice Chairman of the Board of Selectmen Robert Jeffries said, “This was meant to be a discussion within the town of Westford, a community discussion that’s gotten way, way beyond that. We’re not really getting the discussion we want.”

After the meeting, Jeffries added that he had hoped he and his town would not be alone in an effort to restrict assault weapons and high-capacity firearms from the town.

“I thought there would be a [negative] reaction,” Jeffries said. “But I also thought maybe some other towns in Massachusetts might have also tried something similar and none of them did. So it left us isolated as the only ones.”

Westford residents at the meeting felt a sense of relief.

<snip>

David Keene happened to be in Massachusetts on Wednesday night, where he was taking part in a gun control discussion with students at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

Of Westford’s attempt, Keene told WBZ, “One of the things that people in these town meetings and other folks ought to look at is the constitution itself. It is possible and it is legal to put certain restrictions on second amendment rights,” he continued, “but those kinds of restrictions have to be looked at very critically.”

Keene said any attempt to curtail gun ownership is misguided. He cited a recent FBI report on violent crimes when he claimed that hammers kill more Americans every year than guns.

“The murder weapon of choice in this country is the hammer. We’ve never had a three day waiting period for a hammer, although a lot of folks who have to-do lists from their wives might like one,” Keene said.

In fact, that FBI report indicated that “blunt objects” like hammers and clubs are responsible for more deaths than “rifles.” When other weapons like handguns and shotguns are included in the total, firearms then take the lead when it comes to deaths caused.

You mean the Democrat in Republican clothing? I fear that you are correct. Christie will most likely sign that laundry list of bills...
