FPC Responds to Proposed Federal Ban on Standard Capacity Magazines

Ninth Circuit Panel Ruling Holds California Magazine Ban Unconstitutional
FPC Responds to Proposed Federal Ban on Standard Capacity Magazines

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Senate Democrats introduced yet another unconstitutional and outrageous bill attacking the right to keep and bear arms and personal property rights, this one aimed at banning standard capacity firearm ammunition magazines that are commonly possessed and used for lawful purposes by the millions.

S. 1108, introduced by the corrupt and power-hungry Senator from New Jersey, Bob Menendez, is just the latest attempt by authoritarian politicians to infringe upon American’s natural rights. The bill seeks to ban the sale, manufacture, transfer, possession and importation of constitutionally-protected magazines holding more than 10 rounds.

The ironically-named “Keep Americans Safe Act,” a shameless attempt at misdirection to conceal the intended government-enforced disarmament of the American People, would ban individuals from purchasing and possessing arms which are protected by the constitution. Worse, the bill specifically exempts law enforcement and other agents of the state, exposing the bill for what it is: A vehicle to disarm those that are not part of the government’s ruling class.

“Senator Menendez’s and Representative Deutch’s latest bills are nothing more than an outright assault on individual rights and the ability of people to effectively defend themselves,” said FPC’s Senior Director of Legal Operations Adam Kraut. “The notion that an individual does not need more than ten rounds to defend their homes, loved ones, and lives is grounded in fantasy. Should a bill restricting the ability of Americans to obtain magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds reach the President’s desk and be signed into law, FPC Law will respond aggressively, quickly, and forcefully.”

While this bill comes as little surprise to those that have stayed vigilant of Sen. Menendez and his repeated attempts at extinguishing the American public’s right to bear arms, it is nonetheless a legitimate threat against the American people. Menendez is joined in his crusade against the People by the likes of fellow tyrants House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, President Biden, and even Biden’s nominee for ATF Director, David ‘Waco’ Chipman, all of whom have expressed their support for such treasonous infringements.

FPC stands ready to guard against tyranny, and repeat our promise that we will take whatever actions are necessary, possible, and prudent to protect the rights and liberty of the People of the United States.

These anti-gun buffoons keep sending out these ban this gun and ban that magazine failing to understand these ban items sell out even faster. Look in your LGS or online store and everything gun, ammo or component related is either out of stock or requires a long backorder wait. They’ll never learn.

Does anyone wonder why so many of our esteemed leaders have issues that they have to hide to keep from going to prison? Yet they are quick to
condemn anyone who chooses to exercise the freedoms GUARANTEED to
all of us in the U.S. Constitution. Their “hobbies” on the other hand are not only not protected but are listed felonies. We are, in many areas, governed by trash.

Would be easy to get Menendez off our back. Investigate what he does on his junkets to So. America. Hint…it’s something he’d be jailed for here.

Geez. 8 of us went shooting yesterday with our AR, M1’s 9mm, 45, 22lr magazines that held up to 100 rounds pistols and rifles yesterday, burnt off at least 3,000 rounds and not one person was shot or hurt. Did something go wrong or did we need even bigger magazines in order to have problems. I don’t understand.

Too many people have a simple and basic misunderstanding about “gun control.” “Gun control” is not now, and has never been, about crime or criminals.  Quite frankly, the Left couldn’t give a rat’s behind about crime or criminals.  Gun control is, and has always been, about disarming the citizenry so they cannot represent a threat to the government once the Left establishes the dictatorship they have been working toward for well more than half a century and, thanks to the stolen elections of November and January, are now in the process of consolidating.  The key word in the term “gun control”… Read more »

You are correct on every point, Chocopot. I’ve been saying the same for decades. To support our “theory”, if HR1 should pass the Senate, we will never see a Conservative POTUS again. HR1 legalizes virtually every trick used to “win” the 2020 General Election, plus lowers the voting age to 16 years. The Dictatorcrats/Demotators will then have full control over this Nation forevermore; free to completely dismantle our Constitution. This is why the left so strongly hates our 2nd Amendment, and needs to disarm the law-abiding. With an estimated 430 Million legal privately-owned firearms in this country, they know they… Read more »

You hit the nail on the head concerning those “Commie Rat Bastards”.
They are destroying this country, and there is only one way to stop it. We all know what that is.
IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

This is nothing but the political left having another stab at increasing social control.
Those on the left utterly despise self reliance, as they themselves are too weak willed & insecure to attain it, thus nobody should be allowed to live in such a manner.

Then who do we vote for. How are you going to get everyone to vote for that third party at the same time. Ross Perot showed what will happen. You split the republican party and the demonrats win. I would love to have all constitutionalists in every position every where and when people are sworn in, when they take the oath instead of do you solemnly swear to uphold the laws of our government and it’s constitution it should have and fully support the 2nd amendment added to it. If they say yes and then break it, automatically they are… Read more »

APG is correct. Almost every Republican president since Reagan has enacted arms control. Many Republican congressmen vote for it especially when a Republican is in the WH and several Republican controlled states have enacted red flag laws in the past 5 years with Florida, a Republican stronghold, being one of the most notable. Hell, even Texas flirted with the idea a year or two ago. Republicans are not pro-2A and they prove it every time they have complete control of government by never repealing arms laws and sometimes enacting more of them. It’s been said that Republicans are just Democrats… Read more »

Voting? That does not work, in any sense, as long as DemocRats are the ones who COUNT all the votes! (They carefully learned from Stalin)

Obviously the Demonrats don’t believe it would ever get to the point gun owners would ever take up arms against the government but more and more people say that in the comments on articles about their gun control efforts. They believe gun owners will give up their arms voluntarily rather than risk their lives or at the least their comfortable lives and end up in prison. Unfortunately I think making such comments is a quick way to get on a government watch list but the Demonrats need to understand there is a limit to how far gun owners can be… Read more »

Out of everything you wrote there is one thing that clears up everything you said as far as what the left thinks. “They believe” You can believe what ever you want but your beliefs could be wrong.

The Democrats don’t have the numbers, they never did. That is why they have to cheat in elections.
Think about it, how many Democrats do you know in the circle of people you encounter?
