Dems Push To Ban Semi-Autos And Mags

A gun safety working group established by Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo last week announced their findings and recommendation.

The 43-member group, which was established by an executive order by Raimondo two weeks after the high-profile Parkland school shooting in Florida, was made up of lawmakers, prosecutors, medical professionals and gun control advocates picked by the governor to examine establishing a “red flag” gun seizure law for the state.

While such a law has been adopted since the group was formed, its 99-page report issued last week included proposals to ban magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds and tightly regulate most semi-auto long guns. Falling just short of an outright ban on such rifles and shotguns, the group advocated raising the minimum age to possess such a gun to be raised to 21, require state-approved training and licensing to buy one, and mandate that such arms be registered with law enforcement.

“There is simply no place for such firepower in civilian life,” said the report. “While a clear majority of the Working Group wanted to go further and ban all military-style assault weapons—as our neighboring states, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey have done—the Working Group could not reach consensus for such a recommendation. Importantly, however, everyone agreed that registration and tougher restrictions on these weapons are warranted.”

Other recommendations submitted by the group included a ban on “unfinished receivers” and 3D-printed guns, outlawing legal concealed carry on school campuses– a move Raimondo has already implemented via executive order — making it harder to get a gun permit in the state and improving statewide data collection on firearms.

“Since I’ve been governor I have had to lower the flags to half-staff because of gun violence 11 times,” said Raimondo about the report, contending her drive for increased gun regulation was needed in the face of federal inaction. “Enough is enough. While Washington continues to drag its feet, Rhode Island is taking action and working on a plan to keep our schools, our families and our communities safe.”

Facing Republican Allan Fung at the polls next month in a close race, the first-term governor has been emphasising her action on gun policy in recent weeks while accepting support from President Obama and Vice President Biden on the campaign trail.

    What part of “shall not be infringed” has liberals confused?

      They fully understand what it means. They just think that the Constitution is nothing more than an old piece of paper that they use for wiping their a** with.

        Not wishing RBG illwell, but she is 82, and one more conservative on the Supreme Court would be nice.

          Actually, if I was given the choice of which liberal on the Supreme Court that I could get rid of it’d be Elena Kagan. Breyer and Ginsburg are both too old to last much longer. Kagan is young enough to hang around and cause a lot of damage for a long time to come.

            True, but writing dissents never caused much problems.

          • mathis1689

            I tend to view her as a potential source of future trouble. She’s the precise kind of twit that a future liberal President could appoint as a Chief Justice and God alone knows what kind of mischief she’d cause then.

          • PappaDoc

            Yes she will be, but we made it through eight years of Obama, so I’m confident we can make it through just about anything as long as the Court keeps the liberal clown circus in check.

          • mathis1689

            Agreed,but what worries me is that we survived eight years of Fuehrer Obama only by the grace of God and He might be ready to leave us on our own the next time.

    Here is a thought, metal detectors at all entrances, remove the gun free status, armed hallway monitors, armed teachers, age limits on violent video games the kids play, how about just banning the violent video games all together, parents becoming more involved in their child’s life, it’s not the guns causing the problems, if they didn’t use guns they would use knives, bats, hammers, address the problems not the tools they use, with the democrats openly ordering violence, I see things getting way worse before they get better

    New England is California east. They are all trying to one up Jerry Brown and the idiots in the California legislature. This isn’t going to end well for the liberals; when the revolution begins it is going to be a bloody affair and the country as a whole will be the loser no matter which side prevails. The void created is what the globalists are waiting for and they will try to muster a huge U.N. peace keeping force to step in to establish order. This will be the end of the USA and the beginning of the one world government.

    Yep keep taking The peoples defenses away While Your Crime Rate Soars typical No Brain answer for I have no Idea What I’m Doing. Yet they still Blame a Tool That doesn’t harm anyone till a some puts it in their hand Hell Hammers Kill more People Annually than Guns so next it will be a Hammer Ban because out the Tool Box and Whacks people all by itself. So when the Ignorant People of RI Reelect this Female to hold office again I fully expect her to Ban all White Men From owning a Gun while the Crminals get to keep their’s. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/72c3a17bb32738b8ba118a9640ca2c18b0472a7d96efaa2b6c561711bf1642ae.jpg

    Why do they keep lying these Socialist Democrats don’t want gun control they want gun confiscation & once that is done they will shoot for the abolishment of the 1st Amendment concerning any conservative speech or Constitutional law debates. Once that is done these gun grabbers will eventually do away with the Constitution & form a Socialist Dictatorship. Think it can’t happen just look at history all they way up to now.

    I was told most specifically that Democrats don’t want to ban guns, but only want “reasonable safety laws.”

    Exactly what part of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED ON” does the idiot Democrats NOT understand???

    Do they really think Americans are going to sit idly by and allow them to destroy our Second Amendment???

    Obviously so and, obviously, WE the PEOPLE need to educate them in a more “EFFECTIVE” manner than ever before!

    I’m not sure who is worse,the Democrats of ANTIFA! Either way, they are going to keep pushing and find out the hard way just how deeply WE honor our Oath’s, much unlike THEM! We the Silent Majority WILL stand up and fight to the death to protect our Constitution AND Bill of Rights!

    BELIEVE IT!!!
