    Gun Confiscation Bill Introduced in Congress

    IRS credit to citizens who allow government to confiscate their firearms

    On January 13, 2013, H.R. 226 was introduced in the House of Representatives by Connecticut Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro. The bill will amend the 1986 IRS code and allow a credit if taxpayers “surrender” their guns to the government.

    Cited as the “Support Assault Firearms Elimination and Reduction for our Streets Act,” the proposed legislation represents another effort to convince citizens that they must voluntarily turn in their guns as a civic duty and to do their part to reduce “gun violence” and protect children, as Obama said yesterday.

    The bill is yet more evidence that federal and state governments are now pulling out all stops short of door-to-door confiscation in their coordinated effort to disarm the American people.

    Strikingly honest language included in the legislation specifies that the bill is part of the government’s “program to reduce the number of privately owned weapons,” in short, a program to disarm the American people.

    The bill contains an exhaustive list of so-called “assault weapons” that will garner a $2,000 tax credit, including the much demonized Bushmaster AR-15 allegedly used in the Newtown Sandy Hook massacre.

    The bill was referred to the Committee on Ways and Means on January 14, 2013.

    American taxpayers must reject such cynical enticements and stand together and support the Second Amendment against all attacks by Obama and Congress.

    The latest foray against the Second Amendment and the founding principles of the republic commenced soon after the Sandy Hook incident on December 15 when California Democrat senator Dianne Feinstein exploited the tragedy to call for an attack on America’s “gun culture.”

    “I hope and trust that in the next session of Congress there will be sustained and thoughtful debate about America’s gun culture and our responsibility to prevent more loss of life,” Feinstein said. “I will do another assault weapons ban.”

    New York governor Andrew Cuomo jumped on the anti-Second Amendment bandwagon a few days later, on December 21, and proposed gun confiscation in the state. “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option,” Cuomo said. He was egged on by notorious gun-grabber advocate and New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg who also demanded Obama use unconstitutional executive actions against the Second Amendment.

    On December 30, Feinstein said America needs to “bite the bullet” and restrict the gun rights of Americans following comments by president Obama that he would support draconian legislation aimed at the Second Amendment.

    Over the next two weeks, the establishment media launched an intense anti-Second Amendment campaign and produced corporate polls in favor of “common sense” gun bans. Alex Jones appeared on the Piers Morgan Show and a flurry of pro and con pundits and commentators debated the finer points of stripping Americans of their right to own firearms.

    On December 16, Obama and Joe Biden went on national television accompanied by a gaggle of children and pushed the federal government’s anti-Second Amendment agenda. Obama brazenly signed a number of unconstitutional executive actions during the performance instructing the government to roll back the Second Amendment.

    Red James I'm particularly interested in the semi automatic pistol that states no more than 10 rounds.If I'm reading this right ,with my limited knowledge of guns ,this pretty much means revolvers are the only weapons that are acceptable in homes now and I think 7 is the most a revolver will hold.No wonder Sports Authority was so darn crowded yesterday.

    I believe a Colt Government model .45 semiauto is still legal,it holds 7 rounds.As well as any other make of semi auto pistols that hold less than 10 rounds as long as it also doesnt have the following

    ``(i) a second pistol grip,
    ``(ii) a threaded barrel,
    ``(iii) a barrel shroud, or
    ``(iv) the capacity to accept a detachable
    magazine at a location outside of the pistol
    grip.
    ``(G) A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine
    that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

    Is this what a majority of americans voted for?? I am not worried about it I hope it works its self out in the higher courts. I didnt vote for him, I hope the ones that did vote for Oboma is happy about becoming more of a socialist contry. Iam not happy about it but Ill do my own thing and pray that four years goes by fairly quickly.

    This is one of the most idiotic things I have ever heard!
    Criminals intent on doing harm don't care about the laws. On the other hand, law abiding citizens, who uphold laws and protect themselves and others, can now be brandished "criminals"?
    Somebody, somewhere, is really missing the bigger picture here!
    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.
