Missouri Gun Ban: Confiscating, Dismantling, Surrendering in 90 Days

Missouri Democrats have introduced a bill to ban assault weapons. Good luck with that.The Missouri House and Senate have a majority of Republican leadership, in this state solidly planted in flyover country, but get ready,  Marxist Communist Progressives are fully out-of-the-closet. This bill would give legal gun owners 90 days to get rid of weapons with features these Democrats believe make them an “assault” weapon. You cannot take your weapon over the Missouri state line and hand it to cousin Jim. That’s against the law. You would have to sell it to a gun shop – but it wouldn’t be illegal for a gun shop in the state to buy or sell them? You can surrender your weapon to state authorities, or you can dismantle it (render it unusable). This is private property that will not be “grandfathered in,” in stark contrast to what Senator Dianne Feinstein is proposing for federal law.

In the video below Lars Larson, a radio talk show host somewhere on the Left Coast, is chatting with Megyn Kelly. According to Larson, in the U.S. in 2012, less than 300 people were murdered by rifles. He thinks the ban would end up affecting some handguns as well. Overwhelmingly, when murder is committed by gun, it is by handgun.

Remember, the British banned importation of arms to this country in 1774. They tried confiscation in 1775, and guess what happened in 1776?…

The Constitution says that if the government is going to deprive me, a citizen, of property, it has to give me 1) due process and 2) compensation. Can the state of Missouri constitutionally demand that citizens give up expensive property with no due process and  no compensation. Is that legal? Is it constitutional?

As to that, we have watched in horror as Eminent Domain has been used all across the country to take away land not intended to be used for the good of the people (such as a necessary roadway) with no due process or ‘due process’ with purposefully no meaningful result, and very, very little compensation. It is not constitutional.

The State of New York is enormously proud of its new gun law, which has no expiration date, and allows only 7 bullets per clip. You’ve heard of “gang rape,” right? For the victim, she has to hope there are 7 or less rapists to deal with because that’s all her clip is allowed to hold. New Yorkers are close to weaponless for eternity, or until they build a strong conservative presence to take the law down, and you know how that will work out, but at least, New York gave residents 12 months to disarm.

New Jersey and Massachusetts have also disarmed citizens of weapons they fail to see as a defense mechanism. Cook County, Illinois, home to Chicago, has long had a full ban on guns, yet is riddled with the riddled bodies of the dead, brought down by gangs, both youth and adult. They blame guns, not the murderers.

The good people of Missouri are not going to let this happen (although they elected Clair McCaskill to the U.S. Senate again, so who knows).

Law abiding citizens do not own assault weapons, they own defense weapons.

    The naked face of Communism has been revealed. This totally violates our right to bear arms. I am so sick of these anti-liberty, anti-constitution Commies.

      Hi Teresa, you know that’s all I could think of as I wrote this post. They are baldly emboldened now. Obama has made it possible.

    This could be the catalyst that starts a civil war. I doubt that the good people of Missouri will surrender their arms and I doubt that the police can confiscate that many guns.

    • http://maggiesnotebook.com Maggie

      findalis, From what I hear, this won’t fly in Missouri, but we must never forget that asking for it is no longer a problems in the USA.

    It’s amazing what these legislators do not understand about the Constitution or the 2nd Amendment specifically. It “shall not be infringed.”

    The problem is NOT guns. It’s the people who wield them.

    Cars do not kill people. People driving cars (drunk) kill people, yet we don’t blame the car or the alcohol, do we? It is the PERSON who is held responsible.

    I’m tired of being seen as a criminal simply because I legally own a gun.

    The Left is devoid of logic. They simply want what they want and that’s that.

    • http://maggiesnotebook.com Maggie

      Fred, I think they know exactly what they are doing, and they want control. They can’t have control if the people are armed.

    Not going to happen in Missouri. This was started by three stupid Democrats from the St Louis area where liberals thrive. Republicans in Missouri hold a veto proof majority and even many Democrats will vote against this. Word is it won’t even make it to the floor for a vote. Under our Democrat Governor, Jay Nixon, Missouri’s CCW and Castle Doctrine laws have been strengthened. Nixon has been very good for gun owners and our National Guard folks and I would bet he’s had a small talk with these three fools.

      BobF, while I didn’t know the details, I couldn’t imagine this would go anywhere, but after enough years, it could happen. They just keep wearing us down. That’s what’s happening with illegals.

      GLC, I just found your comment in Spam. My apologies. Your excellent information is posted now. If you don’t mind, I’ll add it to the post itself.

    How to boil a frog

    1) Convince states to pass gun control laws (no Federal law)
    2) Courts ignore or negate Second Amendment infringement by states
    3) Reduce non-compliant states to a dozen or less (withhold Federal funds)
    4) Ratify alteration of Second Amendment by 3/4 of states
    5) Eliminate extremist holdouts
    6) Socialism, Comrades!

    Remember these people have a goal but no timeline. They could succeed overnight (consider Australia) or it could take decades.

    I reduced 6 pages to 6 points, and the media plays a major role that’s not evident here. I’m not claiming this will definitely happen, only that it’s a way to gradually remove guns from society without causing war in the streets. Bandwidth doesn’t allow me to view the video in the article above but as for Larson’s italicized comments: Barry and his minions have plenty of experience circumventing what’s legal and constitutional; laws are meaningless unless they are useful in furthering the leftist agenda.

    • http://maggiesnotebook.com Maggie

      Xavier, good job. Alinsky taught not to be impatient, that with determination and grit and patience it would happen. Obama knows it well and has taken it to the next level. With the Black Progressive Caucus, most of which are Democrat Socialists, at the least, we’ll never clean up the House, and they are turning up the heat.

      It’s almost hilarious. Nancy Pelosi is who she is because she have to please the CBC. She gets her power from them.
