Are You a Hunter or Sportsman Who Supports the New AWB? Well I Have News For You.

I keep seeing these editorials and comments to the news that indicate the writer is a hunter, sportsman or gun enthusiast who supports the Second Amendment, but... The commenters then go on to give their support to Obama's "common sense" gun control efforts.  If you are one of these Quislings who purport to support both the Second Amendment and an Assault Weapons Ban, you are giving the Antis' the keys to your gun safe also.

Here is a nifty little tidbit from the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013.  Part of the definition of a banned assault weapon is:
A semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm
Did you catch that?  Any semi auto version of an automatic firearm is covered under Feinstein's new AWB.
Is your gun exempt?
Not if it is a version of John Moses Browning's greatest creation.  The M1911.  The 1911 is not specifically exempted so is banned as a semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm.  Yes, Colt did develop a fully auto M1911A1 back in the '30's.  John Dillinger was quite fond of his.
So what if your particular pet firearm is specifically exempted, how much do you think it would take to remove that exemption?  Once the ban is passed, tightening it up will be no effort at all.
We really do have to stand together to defeat all of the proposed gun control legislation, each and every bit of it.
H/T to Robert Farago for coming up with the text to the new AWB

"semi-auto version of a fully-automatic weapon"?

How many hunters own one of John Moses Browning's (PBUH) BARs?

Hey Kevin, it has been awhile.

Four diffrent BAR's are exempted by name in this bill. A nod to the Fudds for the time being.

The fudds need to realise that their bolt action hunting rifles WILL be classified as intermediate "Sniper rifles"
