HR 4269 “Assault Weapons Ban of 2015”, a bill to “regulate assault weapons” has been introduced by U.S. Representative Sam Farr, a Democrat from California.
The term “Assault Weapons Ban of 2015” as the bill is sub-titled, is in and of itself, a Declaration of Ignorance as assault weapons are already illegal.
This bill, among other ludicrous restrictions, outlaws the sale, transfer, production, and importation of:
- Any magazine or ammunition feeding device that holds more than 10 rounds
- Semi-Automatic weapons that can use detachable magazines
- Semi-Automatic weapons with a fixed magazine that holds more than 10 rounds
- Military style weapons with features such detachable magazines and having a pistol grip or forward grip or barrel shroud, or threaded barrel, detachable or folding or telescoping stock, etc.
- More and more…

This bill is a total violation of the 2nd amendment.
The 2nd amendment does not specify anything other than the right to bear arms.
The purpose of the 2nd amendment is to allow citizens to protect themselves from a tyrannical government. Tyrannical governments and criminals do not obey these same laws, so that puts citizens at a disadvantage and violates the 2nd amendment. Read my previous post: Gun Control is Not About Taking Your Guns But Something Much Worse…
It is already illegal to sell or own actual assault weapons (fully automatic) – unless you have special permits, etc.
All of the weapons mentioned in this bill are semi-automatic, not automatic.
Please take a few minutes and contact YOUR Representative in Congress and tell them to vote NO on HR 4269 if it comes to the floor, and then share this post with everyone you can. You will need your zip code 4 digit extension, click here to look it up.
Until next time,
