U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Passes Semi-Auto and Private Sales Bans


The result of those hearings was the passage of Sen. Charles Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) S. 374, the "Fix Gun Checks Act of 2013" – which would criminalize virtually all private firearm sales, even temporary transfers – and Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) S. 150, the "Assault Weapons Ban of 2013."

Both of these bills pose a direct threat to our Second Amendment rights and both were passed on party-line votes, with committee Democrats supporting the bills and all Republicans voting no.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) offered four amendments to the gun ban bill, each of which would have created exceptions to its sweeping ban on standard magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition and on countless models of detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifles, semi-automatic shotguns, and other guns.

We need to contact JPFO and see how fast we can bring cases under these laws before the Supreme Court.  These are pretty clear "infringements" of the 2nd Amendment, and JPFO is well known for having very good 2nd Amendment lawyers.

Validation that the senate are traitors infested with treason. It's time to clean the house, but it will be business as usual.
