Nobody points out why in WW2 neutrals Belgium. Denmark, Luxemburg, Norway were over run by Germany while little Switzerland was not. An armed citizenry was the difference despite Switzerland having lots of gold.
I asked the rep for my area & he said its a dead bill wit NO chance of passing & I have nothing to worry about ...........I still am .
California: In California the Democrats are acting like a roving pack of thieves, stealing the silverware from a collapsing state building. Much like the Clintons as they were leaving the White House, everything that wasn’t bolted to the floor went out to their U haul trailer. Positively lupine. (look it up) In Washington D.C. the Obama Kremlin workers are acting liken a roving pack of thieves, stealing the silverware from a collapsing federal building. Pelosi says, “Reasons? They say we can find our own damn reasons. It’s not that like we’re lazy, it’s more like the mentality of no longer caring.” The ship of state is sinking and the rats still want the cheese. And now in Missouri the local Mrxists are coming for the guns, guns that will defend the family from thieves, the same thieves that are steeling the cheese from the sinking ship of state.

Over at TheBlaze, commenters said that the Missouri Legislature is Republican controlled, and it doesn't stand a chance.
Feinstein's DOA bill in the Senate is the same idea.
But you know Republicans will slowly peel off in support of it, if they can be like Governor Slinky in Ohio, and get a lil' somethin' for it.
Which makes me mad all over again. Kasich always seemed a little mushy to me. Now he's joined the Christie governors in racing toward statism. We need to cut these guys loose.
I don't want to demean the intelligence of those assembled here this evening, but this is a time honored tactic of the Left. Throw out a simply outrageous proposal, and see how they react.
The response is predictable, and they know it. But a few months down the road, they will throw out the exact same proposal, and believe it or not, there will be less resistance to it.
Finally, they will throw it out a third time, and it will pass.
This is how Liberals work.
Exactly. This is why I can't stand it when Republicans fall for the siren song of "compromise."
Compromise on what? Each time the Cotton Conservatives and Rockerfeller Republicans cave, it really means give up more liberty, and pay more taxes.
Real compromise is winning the battle of ideas, and then giving the other side a way to save face. But instead we get this incrementalism you describe.
I am sure there are intelligent people in Missouri. I've just never witnessed any. Pulled off the Interstate one time to get gas, on my way to Florida. All the gas pumps had a car parked in front of them. No evidence of anyone pumping gas. After about five minutes, I went into the store and asked the cashier if she could get people to move their cars, so I could get some gas.
Her reply was, "well, they're buying groceries. When they get though buying groceries, they'll move their cars." I said, "when do you think that might be?" She said, "when they get through buying groceries."
I got back on the Interstate, and I didn't stop until I was out of Missouri.
vote for all republican ticket, they will suck toes for a job and paycheck. all the politicians are afraid of being killed by these commies in the WH. they should be afraid of the people will do to them if they cave. if they are chicken just quit politics and hide behind a tree. obama can't kill them all, even with the help of the NY and Chicago mayors mobsters.
Can you say facially unconstitutional? IF this statute is enacted, it likely will survive less time than an anti-abortion statute does, like within minutes of signature, a federal judge will likely enjoin enforcement.
If for some moronic reason that law stands, what cop in their right mind is going up to a man's door to get one or more of these weapons? I think most cops would probably refuse to enforce such a law.
The mania for giving the Government power to meddle with the private affairs of cities or citizens is likely to cause endless trouble, through the rivaly of schools and creeds that are anxious to obtain official recognition, and there is great danger that our people will lose our independence of thought and action which is the cause of much of our greatness, and sink into the helplessness of the Frenchman or German who expects his government to feed him when hungry, clothe him when naked, to prescribe when his child may be born and when he may die, and, in fine, to regulate every act of humanity from the cradle to the tomb, including the manner in which he may seek future admission to paradise.

I could say "what idiots" or some such that we already call democrazies, but it's like the guy said there will be another election and let's see them keep their seats then.
I am so glad the Dems, or is it Dums?? are offering this law.
1.It shows exactly who they are and what they want
2.It will never pass.
LOL!!! This has to be a joke.
Couldn't happen in a better state and some of these dumba$$ democrats just committed political suicide. Guns go with this state like steak and potatoes.
Many American's said the same thing about Obama when he said - I'm just not going to enforce or pay attention to laws I don't like i.e. immigration or DOMA.
He sued any state who sued him for not upholding the constitution. He won.
His Commerce Dept. will go after the manufacturers to prevent people from obtaining guns. Don't underestimate this Marxist dictator. He isn't concerned about States Rights.
I think those dems are so bored at being able to do nothing that they're just doing it for the kicks. lol
Obama wants the senate to ratify the UN small arms treaty.It failed once,but they are still pushing for it.Blue helmets are so easy to see.
As a Missouri boy I can tell you this ain't goin' nowheres, nohow! It simply shows how corrupt, evil and brain dead the democRats are. They are completely outnumbered both in the state house and senate.
Confiscation of legally owned private property???? Hummm, how may laws they gonna break to do that?? I think maybe all of these lefty idiots in favor of this need to be introduced to tar and feathering.
At the risk of having you any More upset, may I refer your attention to UN Agenda 21. The more I`m learning about it, observing the progress of implementation, and goals of this "agenda", the More Important I feel it is to Call Attention to this Reality. This THREAT is Alive and Well, and disarming America is Very Much a part of the Puzzle !!!!
Republicans should have added an amendment to also prevent public financing of private security for these people, and to ban gun ownership by all public servants......you know, lead by example like we're being forced to do at the international level.
Last I checked...the Constitution of the United States has yet to be revoked! The 2nd Amendment trumps this and I would LOVE to see a high profile lawsuit come out of this! Hope the NRA files a swift and costly suit that will bring this and all other infringing and poorly written laws, based on "feelings" instead of facts, to the trash bin where they belong!
Obama probably wants to make this Federal law. And if Congress turns it down, hey, no problem. He'll just issue an Executive Order to enforce it. But nobody will follow it. Unless, of course, you also get a rebellion thrown into the mix, too.
From what I've read this Bill has ZERO chance of passing. R's outnumber D's what 3 to 1. Does make one wonder what those D's are seeking to gain from that proposed Bill though.
I'm here in Mo. You're right scoop. Dems totally outnumbered here in the legislature. Never gonna happen. Even if it was the other way around, boy would they have a fight on their hands. I know we have Nixon as gov, and don't get me started on mccaskill, but we're not a blue state. Not right now anyway. Keep it up dems. If you wanna give us more of your seats, we'll take 'em.
I'm happy to see legislation introduced like this and run it's course on the record rather than faux-bipartisan fakery like Obama and Reid's emergency republican nut-busting sessions behind closed doors.
Foolish on so many levels.
If they are serious and this passes, there will be big trouble. Funny that it would "start" in the "Show Me" state.
Interesting they are very concern about the LAW, since they (Constitution what's that) and other criminals are exempted.
Why does the left continue to fear plastic, folding/collapsible stocks? Any semi-auto with a folding stock suddenly becomes an assault weapon. But the same rifle with a 'regular' stock is a totally different gun?
What is so dangerous about an adjustable stock?
That's what Brian Lilley of Canada's Sun News Network said would happen in the U.S. Registration leads to confiscation. The government knows the people will not be wanting to go along with their dictatorial agenda, and want Americans to be defenceless. Even if you have guns,... if you don't have much ammunition, you lose in a standoff. This one world government, new world order stuff is becoming very serious. Obama's in a hurry to see it happen under his tenure.
Then, Islamobama will probably go home to Islamland and become a leader there.
