Ohio Might Soon Ban All Semi-Auto’s

A group of Ohio Democrats is pushing for a statewide ban on many semi-auto firearms in the Buckeye State in the wake of a mass shooting in Florida.

The proposal, SB 260, backed by state Sens. Mike Skindell and Charleta Tavares, would define an “assault weapon” as a semi-auto firearm with the capacity of accepting 10 or more rounds in the magazine, making it a felony to possess one.

“Assault weapons were designed to be used by trained members of the military to kill people,” Tavares said. “These weapons, unfortunately, are killing innocent children and adults by people who want to murder, maime [sic] and terrorize large masses of people in public spaces.”

The move, inspired by a recent shooting in Florida that claimed the lives of 17, goes past the expired federal ban in the respect that it would classify even firearms with fixed magazines, such as a .22 rifle with a tubular underbarrel magazine, as an assault weapon. Possession of a gun classified as such in Ohio would be punishable as a fifth-degree felony which allows for up to 12 months in prison and fines of as much as $2,500 for the first offense. It would also require the Ohio Attorney General’s office to create a registry of all sales of firearms and ammunition.

While Democrats hold only nine of 33 seats in the Ohio Senate, Republican Gov. John Kasich has publicly signaled support for laws that target some semi-autos such as the AR-15.

Gun rights advocates say the proposal falls flat. “It is an insane idea. It just doesn’t work and our kids deserve a solution that does work,” said Jim Irvine, president of the Buckeye Firearms Association.

    I noticed that in her statement that assault weapons were designed to be used by trained military to kill people. That statement is correct but the semi-auto rifle she calls an assault weapon that is used by hunters and gun enthusiast is also used by police to kill people if need be. So to be fair, I assume that she would not be in favor of the police having an ARMOLITE RIFLE or some facsimile to keep her safe. Let’s all be nice and go back to the six shooter. The day she gets all criminals to give up their guns and obey the law is the day I wouldn’t need my semi auto handgun. Until then, I’ll guard myself and family.

      Anyone pay attention to a picture of the kid Hogg? He looks like a mental case just itching to go postal. Does that mean he is a nut job? Of course not. That’s very much like the AR15 vs M16. The AR15 might look like an M16 used by the military, but it isn’t the same.
      The AR never has been a military weapon. In fact, it existed before the military tested and adopted the M16, the AR was sold to the general public as a rifle well suited to small game and varmints on farm and ranch. It was called the “Varminter”. The M16 wasn’t tested and adopted until 1964. I carried the M16 throughout my 21 year career, including Vietnam. It was never identified as an “assault weapon”. The book which came with it was titled “Care and Maintenance of the M16 Rifle”. I still have my copy.
      Now, Ohio Dems are talking a ban on ALL semi-auto firearms (shotguns, rifles, pistols). That is insane. Yet, it’s the same thing the progressives did in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. And businesses are severing ties with the NRA.
      We have reached the point where we must band together no matter what group we might belong to. There are many pro gun associations across the nation. It is time they came together. They don’t have to agree on every point, but they should at least agree that the 2nd Amendment is the law of the land until it is legally changed by Constitutional Convention, or by an amendment.
      Politicians have no authority or moral right to change an enumerated right of the people, for if they can change one, they can change any.

        I wish people would read our history. The Founders put NO such restrictions on the people’s right to bear arms. In fact we were suppose to have the exact same weapons that the military uses just in case the military went rogue! All gun laws are Unconstitutional just do a little research on what the Founders meant not what some black robe politician thinks we should have. We don’t need their permission to practice our Religion or what we say do we? No same goes with the 2 amendment! The government (both State and Federal) are denied any power with regards to firearms!

          A true and proper “read,” Richard:

          “The signification attributed to the term Militia appears from the debates in the Convention, the history and legislation of Colonies and States, and the writings of approved commentators. These show plainly enough that the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. ‘A body of citizens enrolled for military discipline.’ And further, that ordinarily, when called for service these men were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time.”

            It should be noted here that virtually all federal gun control legisation is “lynch-pinned” to ‘Miller’.

            More interesting is that the 1939 Supreme Court violated their own earlier ruling in ‘Hopt v. People of the Territory of Utah’ – 4 S.Ct. 202, 28 L.Ed. 262 (1884) in which they ruled that ‘trial in absentia’ was unconstitutional.

            At the Miller hearing, neither Jack Miller nor Frank Layton were represented by council; ergo, only the federal government’s side was heard and taken into “consideration.”

            Furthermore, seeing as how there had been no evidenciary hearing prior to the SCOTUS hearing, all the facts about proper weaponry for the “modern (as of 1939) militia” was presented by any court for actual consideration.

            Adding to that is the fact that “short-barreled shotguns” absolutely had a “military usage” history which should have received “judicial notice”; to-wit: the usage of the blunderbuss by Continental Navy and Continental Marines (later: US Navy and US Marines) when boarding ships of the British Navy during the Revolutionary War.

            This brings to mind the question as to just why Justice James Clark McReynolds – author of the ‘Miller’ decision – wrote “Certainly it is not within judicial notice that this weapon is any part of the ordinary military equipment, or that its use could contribute to the common defense.” – Ibid.

            Could it be that prior to being appointed to the Supreme Court bench he was a federal prosecutor in his term as United States Attorney General under President Woodrow Wilson?

            Furthermore, as to Justice McReynolds, he ranks as #3 Worst SCOTUS Justice – following the pro-slavery decision of ‘Dred Scott v. Sandford’ *1857) by Chief Justice Roger Taney:

        “The AR never has been a military weapon.”

        Not _/exactly/_ correct, Dave.

        During its development by Eugene Stoner at Fairchild/ArmaLite, his design was designated “AR-15” (ArmaLite Rifle, Model #15).

        Early production models were marked “AR-15” – and were marked as “ArmaLite/Colt AR-15” once Colt Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company bought the rifle and designs from ArmaLite – but the rifles were redesignated as “Colt M16” once formally adopted by the US Department of Defense [the arm was also manufactured by a limited number of other manufacturers under subcontract to Colt].

        The above notwithstanding, no ArmaLite or ArmaLite/Colt “AR-15” selective-fire rifles were ever available for non-governmental purchase.

        Even before the U.S. government adopted the selective-fire M16 in 1964, Colt manufactured and marketed the semi-automatic-only “AR-15 Sporter” rifle to the general public in 1963.

        Ergo, the civilian “AR-15” officially preceded the military “M16” and, to be literally correct, the military has been using a “civilian” rifle for over fifty years.

        BTW: “AR-15” is a registered trademark of Colt’s Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company (nka: Colt’s Manufacturing Company), so the “generic” usage of the name on other semi-automatic-only “Modern Militia Arms” based on the Eugene Stoner/ArmaLite Rifle (“AR”) designs is a clear violation of the U.S. Patent and Trademark law.

        • Dave

          I beg to differ but, while the design was designated AR15 had not then been adopted by the military. In fact, the brass of the USA, USN, USMC fought against adoption.
          ARMALITE was having cash flow problems so they began selling to the public. That didn’t solve their problem. Colt stepped in, bought the design, and the rest is history.
          So, it doesn’t matter what the original design designation was, it was not a military weapon.
          I never said the select fire weapons were available to the public. I said “minus the Full Auto selection” the civilian version was sold to the public. Colt’s military production included a different designation which included select fire. While they looked alike, they were different and bore different designations.
          Therefore, only the designation AR15 proceeded the designation M16, not the rifle. Also, Stoner had another one in 7.62 which he continued to work on at least as late as 1969, which looked identical to the M16. We saw it demonstrated at Camp Bullis, TX while attending AZR. Again, the AR15 has never been an issue weapon.

    People, I want to keep this short. Start with looking at cities with the toughest gun laws in the country and the gun murder rate associated there. You can ban and legislate till Hades freezes over.. This horrible senseless slaughter in Florida, may have been prevented had the FBI, by their own admission followed up on the tips given to them and the “cowardice ” of the armed school security and the Broward county sheriffs department not taking the action needed, they are paid to protect, that is they daily put their lives on the line as ado all law enforcement officials.

    Two of the safest places in the world as far as gun violence: Kennesaw Georgia – where gun ownership is mandatory. The city’s website states that Kennesaw “has the lowest crime rate in Cobb County,” one of the most populace counties in Georgia. In fact, from 1982 through 2009, Kennesaw had been nearly murder free with one murder occurring in 2007. And then there is Switzerland,where every boy and girl of a certain age is required to do serve a period of time in the military. They are issued a gun and taught how to use it …near zero gun violence

    First, the definition of military style weapons is totally inaccurate, as they are already outlawed in most states without rigorous and expensive controls for owners, FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPONS! 2nd: the word assault is really an adverb/action! And third, these laws won’t cover those who would steal or make their own weapons, those who don’t follow any laws, no matter the law! For instance, Murder is against the law, and firing a weapon in most city-limits is against the law, and robbery is against the law, but these laws are “broken” by criminals daily!!!! This is ludicrous, and another product of the Democratic Party at large!! Sad, they’ve forgotten their “OATHS OF OFFICE!!!”

    Its way overdue time for gun owners to work together, as a very, very powerful voting block and powerful voice.
    The type of lunacy such as these Democrat, knee-jerk, reactionary goons display. Wantonly trampling all over their constituent’s Constitutional rights a) because they think Constitutional law does not apply to liberals if they’re overly excited about a cause du jur. Or b) Election time is getting close, so they need to outwardly act overly reactionary about the cause du jur.

    How dare these cone headed buffoons just come along and suppose they’re going to completely outlaw a huge segment if legal firearms in America. Firearms which, in fact, they cannot even properly describe. Nor can they factually describe the use of such a wide variety of firearms, nor can they properly utilize the proper nomenclature related to each type of firearm within the hugely broad heading of Semi-automatic firearms, incorrectly and errantly referred to as “assault rifles.” Which, by definition, no semi-automatic firearm can be.

    This is a very bad move and I pray OH legislators are smarter than to agree to it. Semi-auto weapons are NOT “assault weapons”; those are FULL-auto and not generally owned by private citizens, by law already. If OH is allowed to go down that path, the 2nd A will be GONE for us all very soon afterward.

    Indignation

    Nearly two weeks have
    passed since the senseless and horrific incident at Marjory Stoneman Douglas
    High School in Parkland, Florida which saw the lives of 17 innocent people,
    including 14 children, ended by a mentally disturbed, former classmate. I’ve prayed every day for the families,
    parents, students, faculty, staff and residents of Parkland, that they might
    begin healing from this tragedy.
    However, I can’t begin to imagine the feeling of loss they are all
    dealing with. Even though I have fought
    through the emotions of losing comrades during combat, it can’t compare to the
    hopelessness of losing a child, regardless of the situation.

    My compassion and sorrow
    for all those grieving and a Country showing it’s ire, as it looks for a token
    upon which to place the blame, causes me to think about the root evil behind
    such happenings. Immediately,
    individuals, politicians and the media are drawn to guns but I’ve never seen a
    gun jump off the wall into someone’s hands and say “let’s go kill someone”. Mental illness is certainly a potential
    factor but across our Country the streets are filled with mentally ill persons
    who don’t act out their illness through acts of murder.

    So, what might have or
    has influenced a societal change that could cause an unstable individual to
    commit such evil? Why do disturbed
    individuals contemplate committing homicide?
    Might we look no further than Hollywood and the producers of mega
    violent films that pervade movie theaters and our homes, with the most
    grotesque manner and methods of mayhem and killing. Actors who profess to be repulsed by the
    horror of Newtown or Parkland but make fortunes from acting in films that
    promote the most gruesome violence upon fellow humans. Video game manufacturers that produce every
    form of violence and combat, showcasing the vary arms they say need to be
    controlled. Games that children and
    adults alike, spend hours upon hours
    playing, often in competition trying to kill each other. Artists and musicians who ban together to
    abhor the sexual harassment of women yet take roles in films that denigrate
    women and sing rap songs that promote rape, humiliation and even murder. Where’s the indignation of our nation against
    an industry that promotes basic evil, openly and contemptuously, solely for the
    sake of making money. Where is the
    indignation against a news media that displays the worst of mankind 24-7. A media that portrays every detail of heinous
    crimes to a public that has no real need to see it. Where is the indignation toward an ex
    president that would chose an artist, Kehinde Wiley, to paint his portrait for
    the Smithsonian Museum, an artist that paints pictures of black women in
    ceremonial dress, holding a knife dripping with blood in one hand and the head
    of a white woman in the other hand?

    And while we grieve for
    “17” innocents lost in the school shooting in Parkland and struggle
    over how to prevent it from happening again, where is humanity’s indignation
    against the abortionists, spread across this great Country, that murder
    “2500” innocent human beings “every day”! The Hollywood producers, the Actors, the
    Musicians, the Artists, the Journalists, none can hide behind the veil of
    mental illness, none will likely pick up a gun to murder another individual,
    yet they may well be behind an insidious societal change that has lead to many
    of these incidents of violence. The
    glamorizing by the media of man’s inhumanity against humanity, for weeks on end,
    only adds to the potential for the next homicidal incident. And, the continued support in this Country
    for Planned Parenthood and the mass murder of the unborn, is a reflection of
    the impact all of the above have had on our perceived value of life. Let’s take a hard look at the real evil behind
    the horrific actions of the Parkland shooter.

    Banning guns is not a common sense solution to local or mass shootings. We need to put armed officers in our schools and come up with common sense solutions like fixing our broken NICS system, closing gun show loopholes, and better identifying and stopping people with violent tendencies and providing help to people with mental illness. For Gods sake start holding the people who commit the crimes accountable instead of law abiding citizens!

      All of the past “school” shooters have several traits in common. All males, mostly young, all taking psychotropic drugs (happy pills), all avid gamers (first person shooter games) and most of them were liberal Democrats. I find it strange that most mass shootings occur the same time and place as preplanned active shooter drills.

    ANY type of firearm is a tool. It is the person who utilizes it wrong that is at fault and in the case of the FL. school shooting, there was an infinite amount of information long before on the individual who did such a dastardly act. The Deputy who was armed I guess was a democrat and did not want to use a firearm or do his damn job like many others who had prior knowledge. But NO. Let us blame the guns. Lt’s get to the root of the problem. Teachers who know that people are being bullied do nothing to the BULLIES of the world. Yes, there are people who may know that a person is mentally unstable, report it to law enforcement but never gets put into a computer so firearms can not end up in their hands. There is plenty of blame to go around, but lets not go there. If he walked into the school, which should have had locked doors and only one way in that was monitored, with a baseball bat, and hit everyone he saw square in the head, it would have been quieter and may have killed more. Then would everyone jump on the Baseball Assn. and ban bats. NO. Think about it. We are talking about kids lives. Don’t just knee jerk the situation. Come up with a federal plan that will protect children across the nation and get to the root of the problem. Mostly, the breakdown of MORALS in this country. We don’t pull together, we tear each other apart, and the kids see this. HATE BREEDS HATE. Look at the most gun controlled city in America. Chicago. The murder capital of the world, WITH GUNS.

The same way that Hitler & Mussolini did in WW2, and as did Lenin & the other Marxists after him because they knew that before they could take over and pillage the country and try to take over the world that they would have to remove any means of the people to stand up against them to stop their takeovers. No difference now than then. Just a change of cast, now instead of Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot, Hussein, Kaddafi, etc., we have Pelosi, Schiff, ( nutty?) Waters, & all of the commiecrats of Ohio. They just want to try to get their foot in the door of gwtting some kind of a gun control plot going. Everyone knows they won’t stop with whatever they begin with but will always try to take our rights from us. A right isn’t something that we need a permit or license to do; a right is a God-given ability that the government has no authority over & no power to cause to cease, and not a ‘privilege’ such as driving an auto. All red-blooded Americans must stand up & be counted at this next election and put these communist ‘politicians’ (& I use the word loosely) out of business and out of our government . The government is to serve us, the people and constituents, and not us, the people to serve the government.

    I bet most people completely ignore any such law as they should! The 2 amendment bars both State and Federal governments from infringing on the God Given Rights we have from birth! Any such law would be illegal, unconstitutional and no citizens as a duty to obey it!

    Let’s ban all cars and drunk driving too because they kill more people than guns. Oh wait there are laws against drunk driving and we see how that works. Where I live we lost 6 teens in as many months due to driving either crazy or under the influence. So let’s raise the age to 30 before one can get a license to drive and let’s govern the cars to do only 25 mph.

    I am so damn fed up with these commie leftists that severely lack any kind of ability to reason and just throw out new laws because it makes them feel good. These traitors to the constitution need permanently removed from office.

    MAN, Y’ALL OVER THERE IN OHIO BETTER GET THEM LIBTARDS UNDER CONTROL QUICKLY !!! I’M GLAD I BAILED ABOUT 2 1/2 YEARS AGO & CAME TO THE MOUNTAINS HERE IN WEST VIRGINIA. I’M PRETTY SURE THIS AIN’T EVER GONNA MAKE IT TO KASICH’S DESK, BUT I’M JUST AS SURE HE’D SIGN IT IF IT DID. HERE IN WV, WE’VE GOT A DIFFERENT BREED OF DEMOCRAT – THEY STILL BELIEVE VEHEMENTLY IN THE 2nd AMENDMENT & ARE BASICALLY MORE CONSERVATIVE THAN AN OHIO “MODERATE” REPUBLICAN. I KNOW, I KNOW…I WOULDN’T HAVE BELIEVED IT MYSELF IF I HADN’T MOVED HERE & SEEN IT FIRST HAND. ALTHOUGH I STILL WOULD NEVER VOTE FOR ANY DEMOCRAT, PERIOD… I’M JUST SAYIN’ THEY’RE A BIT DIFFERENT OVER HERE. NOT YOUR RUN-OF-THE-MILL LIBTARD VARIETY BY ANY MEANS. BUT, I’D SUGGEST A RECALL CAMPAIGN ON KASICH ANYWAY, JUST IN CASE BY SOME MIRACLE SOMETHING LIKE THIS ACTUALLY GETS THROUGH TO HIS DESK. Y’ALL KNOW HE’D SIGN IT WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT !!! HE’S NOT A REAL REPUBLICAN BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION. BETTER THAN STRICKLAND WOULD’VE BEEN, YES, BUT NOT BY MUCH…………..

    Please stop using the LLL [looney liberal lefties] HATE WORDS! Your definition of an” assault weapon” is a semi-automatic weapon capable of accepting a 10 round magazine. Most militaries use AUTOMATIC WEAPONS!! 1 pull of the trigger can result in a single shot or 3 shot/5 shot/ 10 shot burst or on FULL AUTOMATIC totally emptying the clip!
    Please ask the LLL which of criminal rights they want the criminals to give up: 1ST, 2ND, 3RD, 4TH, 5TH, 8TH, 13TH & 14TH & 15TH, the counting Native Americans for purpose of representation in Congress, Miranda or others.

    NOW, are the LLL willing to GIVE UP THE SAME RIGHTS too?

    Oh by the way, the next time I come to Columbus I am going to leave my suv at home & drive my URBAN ASSAULT VEHICLE.
