There is a new anti-gun bill in the Senate, sponsored by Senators King and Heinrich.
The GOSAFE Act.
What does GOSAFE stand for?
The laughable aspect of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban was that it was so easy to get around the ban by removing certain features like adjustable buttstocks, flash hiders, and bayonet lugs.
You could buy any number of rifles that were functionally the same as a banned gun, except for some cosmetic and ergonomic features.
This bill cuts right to the heart of the issue by going after gas operated guns, regardless of features.
Senator Heinrich created this handy little diagram to show what will be regulated.
The actual text of the bill states that any gas, blowback, or recoil operated semi-automatic centerfire rifle is considered gas operated.
The bill also requires all high capacity magazines to be serialized like a firearm to prevent illegal transfer after the date the bill goes into effect.
It also prevents the transfer of all prohibited magazines, including to descendants.
Senator Heinrich, very graciously, has offered to buy back your guns and magazines before they have to be seized after you die because they can’t be inherited by your family.
The GOSAFE Act will prevent stockpiling of these lethal firearms and large capacity magazines, and also ensure no one loses the value of any firearms they currently have, by establishing a voluntary buy-back program, which would allow firearm owners to voluntarily turn over and receive compensation for non-transferrable firearms and magazines as defined by this legislation.
This bill is so blatantly unconstitutional it’s almost silly, but they did it anyway.
They finally got enough technical knowledge to write a bill that did exactly what they wanted and cut off avenues for compliant run-arounds.
After the George Floyd riots, 10/7, and the pro-Hamas pogroms, the idea of gun control should be absolutely dead for any reasonable citizens.
This tells me they want the mob to be able to terrorize you.
