There is a complete list of proposed guns to be banned on this link. Basically all semi auto guns are assault weapons now and if you have one and this law passes you will be a criminal. This is a Democrat sponsored bill. Seems like I just heard Democrats weren’t after our guns

Not sure if I'm for this or not. But read the first line. No one is after either your or my guns.

That's what we tell you.. to make you feel safe.. and then we "snatch" it from you before you even know what's going on.
I also heard Christians will be first to have their guns confiscated, yet all Dems can keep theirs.

And gays. All gays are allowed to keep their guns, no matter what religion or party they belong to.

bakers.. no more guns for bakers.. well, we know why...

It is certainly good news for the GOP that the Dems have put up this radical bill to ban the most popular rifles and handguns in the nation.

Plenty of election fodder.
