There are truly times I’m ‘glad’ when I can skip a news day…  Otherwise I’d need another case or two of duct tape…

Democratic senators offer gun control amendment for cybersecurity bill
By Ramsey Cox – 07/26/12 07:29 PM ET

Democratic senators have offered an amendment to the cybersecurity bill that would limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers.
Shortly after the Cybersecurity Act gained Senate approval to proceed to filing proposed amendments and a vote next week, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a sponsor of the gun control amendment, came to the floor to defend the idea of implementing some “reasonable” gun control measures.

The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Schumer and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.). S.A. 2575 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. 

The amendment is identical to a separate bill sponsored by Lautenberg. Feinstein was the sponsor of the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004. 

The proposed amendment would only affect sales and transfers after the law took effect.

Uh huh, SURE it will…  

Schumer defended the Brady law and assault weapons ban on the floor Thursday evening, perhaps in preparation for the coming fight with Republicans and gun rights activists.

Schumer suggested that both the left and right find common ground.
“Maybe we could come together on guns if each side gave some,” Schumer said. 

Chuck You’s idea of common ground is for US to give up everything and they get their way…

He suggested that Democrats make it clear that their goal is not to repeal the Second Amendment.


“The basic complaint is that the Chuck Schumers of the world want to take away your guns,” Schumer said of the argument made by gun lobbies. “I think it would be smart for those of us who want rational gun control to make it know that that’s not true at all.”

Schumer also pointed out that it would be reasonable for the right to recognize that background checks on those buying guns is necessary — as called for in the Brady law. He also said average Americans don’t need an assault weapon to go hunting or protect themselves.

Um… We ALREADY have that… And criminals DON’T do background checks…

“We can debate where to draw the line of reasonableness, but we might be able to come to an agreement in the middle,” Schumer said. “Maybe, maybe, maybe we can pass some laws that might, might, might stop some of the unnecessary casualties … maybe there’s a way we can some together and try to break through the log jam and make sure the country is a better place.”

It would be a MUCH better place if we had CCW everywhere!!! Then ALL the criminals would have to think twice…

Next week the Senate is expected to debate and vote on proposed amendments to the cybersecurity bill.

Make sure you let YOUR Senators know what you believe, and what you expect of them!!!

  1. What torques me is the fact this is the same old crowd doing the same old laws from what, about TWO Decades ago? 1994-2012, correct?

    Which, IMHO, is why the Founders should have put in Term Limits when they wrote the Constitution.

  2. Give ’em an inch…

    BTW – I wish I had a dollar for every time one of those loons and their media lapdogs call a semi-auto an assault weapon.

  3. So, in our system, it’s up to the gov’t to prove post-legislative possession, not us to prove otherwise? Right?


  4. Andy- Nah… sigh

    PH- Concur!

    Les- Yep…

    WSF- Agreed, I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him!

    Tim- They’re taking FIVE MILES!!!

    GFA- I wish…

  5. And I have two assholes trying to pass all these gun laws. Reed and Whitehouse of RI. They are and have been a couple of backstabbing bastards since each got elected!But there are so many friggin’ crooks living in this state they just keep on getting elected! There aren’t enough of we conservatives to get rid of them and the rest of the self serving shit-heads!!

    Sorry about the swearwords NFO but my USN training in verbal comms. keeps leaping to the fore!

  6. As crazy as all their nonsense is, I seem to have missed how “Cybersecurity” is going to be safer by controlling any type of gun……nevermind, I forgot this has nothing to do with sense. Arghhh!

  7. Joey, you think there might be something in the cybersecurity bill that they don’t want us paying attention to?

    And The Usual Suspects can play the “Republicans shot down the cybersecurity bill over trifles” game. Again.

  8. Ev- Understood!

    Joey- it doesn’t… sigh; It’s politics!

    Rick- Correct

    MSgt- Feel free! 🙂

  9. OK, Chuck. We need to compromise.

    What do I get?

    What did I get in ’34? ’68? ’86? ’94?

    I know what I lost. What did I gain?
