Yes, they really are coming for your guns, and they aren’t being coy about it in the slightest.
A pathetic contingent of liberty-hating, anti-American Democrats have introduced H. R. 4269, “To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.”
Yes, they’ve proposed a bill that directly counters the wording of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. They are that brazen in their hatred of your natural right to armed self-defense.
They would like to outlaw the vast majority of the best-selling rifles, shotguns, and handguns in the United States, any device or part that could “accelerate the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle,” (which could mean literally anything depending on ATF interpretation), parts kits that enable citizens to build common firearms, and standard capacity magazines.
But they aren’t done yet.
Unlike the 1994 “assault weapon” ban, this one will make it “unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semiautomatic assault weapon.”
They intend to make it illegal to transfer any of the tens of millions of firearms that they would ban, with then specific intent of having all of these firearms be made illegal by simple attrition in the course of a generation.
You would not be allowed to pass down your firearms to your family members, nor would you be allowed to share them with family and friends at the range. When you died, your grandfathered guns would be made illegal, despite their clear and obvious utility as firearms useful for contemporary service in the militia.
This bill is nothing more or less than a direct assault on the Second Amendment.

Under the last few administrations the federal government has seized a tremendous amount of liberty from the citizenry, a citizenry that has reflexively responded to this mad power grab by purchasing 100+ million firearms and billions to perhaps trillions of rounds of ammunition, and thousands of tons of body armor.
We are a nation preparing for a civil war, even though neither side wants to directly talk about it.
Realizing that continued attempts to strip the citizenry of their liberty will inevitably result in armed resistance, the radical left wing of the Democrat Party is going “all in” in 2016 to make this the nation’s first “gun control election.” They are coming for your guns.
They are so desperate that they are attempting to fabricate the illusion of a gun violence at a time where homicides committed with firearms are at an all time low in recorded history.
Sadly, the mainstream media is attempting to push the lie of “gun violence” in a blatant and partisan attempt to sell that falsehood for their allies in the Democrat Party, even as violent crime continues to drop.
You have a simple choice, my fellow Americans. You can believe the fear-mongering and the anecdotes of a media and political class that seeks to seize more power at the expense of your liberty, or you can believe the cold, hard, data of the FBI, which shows the “gun violence epidemic” to be an utter and irrefutable lie.
