National Assault Weapons Ban Moves Forward Despite Proof of Gun Control Failures

Wisconsin – -(AmmoLa nd.com)- Wisconsin Gun Owners, Inc. (WGO)— Wisconsin’s only no-compromise gun rights organization — opposes H.R. 1808, the so-called “Assault Weapons Ban of 2021,” as it would make most firearms owners criminals overnight and would ban all of the most common firearms in use today, even squirrel hunting rifles.

This week H.R. 1808 is set for markup in the House of Representatives, and WGO says that it may get the support it needs from weak-kneed Republicans, despite the fact that gun control is extremely unpopular with voters.

“An assault weapons ban would rob many people of their legally acquired property, create unnecessary criminals out of the law-abiding, and leave most Americans at the mercy of well armed criminals,” says Thomas Leager, WGO’s Executive Director.

WGO says that a national assault weapons ban would further the political divide in America to dangerous proportions. The group notes that America needs unity, not a federal government that forces unpopular and unconstitutional laws down the states’ throats.

Recently the Supreme Court ruled in NYSRPA v. Bruen that such a ban would be out of sync with the Constitution and violates the Second Amendment. But WGO says the most crucial point is that gun control does not make communities safer, and it can prove it.

“Highland Park, Illinois, has an ‘assault weapons’ ban and the most stringent gun control laws in the country, yet a madman was able to kill seven people and wound 36 others. Those gun control laws did not stop him,” said Leager. “By comparison, Indiana has a freshly passed Constitutional Carry law. Jonathan Sapirman, a would-be mass shooter, went to the Greenwood Mall to commit an atrocity but was quickly put down by a legal concealed carrier named Elisjsha Dicken. Three were killed, and there were two injured, compared to seven dead and 36 wounded in Highland Park. So, I will repeat it — gun control gets innocent people killed.”

Wisconsin Gun Owners plans to oppose any attempts to further an Assault Weapons Ban nationally or at the state level.

About Wisconsin Gun Owners:

Wisconsin Gun Owners works for grassroots gun owners, not politicians. While many gun lobbies fight for “reasonable gun control,” WGO sets a higher standard: Defining the terrain of pro-gun political battle. Sure, many groups claim they’re “pro-gun” – all the while they provide cover for anti-gun deals cut by politicians – but only WGO truly informs gun owners, remaining committed to a 100% pro-gun position. We oppose all gun control – regardless of the political party – and work tirelessly to restore the Second Amendment. Visit www.wisconsingunowners.org

Ope

Gotta love it.

could not happen to a bigger idiot

Outstanding! Officer Joseph Fihe deserves a medal. Hope it becomes a trend. OpeTEX & his downvote sock posse would’ve sucked up to his “federal partner”, then Tiger Talked about it later like Napoleon Dynamite air kicking towards the bully after he walked away.

Face the facts , we are already in a period of Cold Civil War . The Leftist partisans are way ahead in the overall implementation of their agenda. Progressives of every ilk have infiltrated our Media, Educational institutions, political offices, both local and National, the bureaucracy ( Deep State ) Justice systems and entertainment venues. The ONLY thing holding them at bay is the 2nd Amendment and there is a full blown , head on attack against it even as we speak. Right now , we own the gun battle because WE THE PEOPLE still own our guns, and plenty… Read more »

Yes, but there is more. Be sure to teach your grandkids that the purpose of school is tests. Shut up, give the teacher what they want, collect the good grade, and move on, but don’t take it seriously. Be sure to tell them the media lie for a living, and not to take them seriously. Show them free markets work by asking them to do some small task and paying them generously. Teach them to shoot, with or without their parents knowledge. Grandparents are in a unique position to shape the future, so be creative to teach the youngsters our… Read more »

Go ya one better, Bill ; there are several young people in my neighborhood, in a rural area not too far from DC where their parents work . I’m fortunate enough to have a shooting range on my property and close to the Potomac river, where I’m teaching them to fish. Come Fall, I’ll be getting them into the shooting sports ( they’re all home schooled) so I have opportunities to teach outdoor skills also . My son and granddaughter both got all that training growing up and turned out to be wonderful, patriotic citizens; but they are both grown… Read more »

we need to produce more ammo , they have a choke point on primers

Just pick up the ammo that THEY drop.

The Second Amendment states very clearly “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”. Any action taken by congress should be considered TREASON as long as the Second Amendment in its entirety remains in the bill of rights. It has stood for well over 200 years and one should wonder what those people so vehemently opposing the Second Amendment have in mind.

What has history shown about what happens when the citizenry is disarmed. We have no method of self-defense left.

swmft

they have been doing everything to ignore 2A because they know trying to repeal it would get them shot in a hurry

Wild Bill

I think that you have your finger on the pulse. Might not fit the Constitutional definition of treason, but 18 USC 242 is available. We gotta win big in November because we know what the marxist socialists have in mind.

With well over 56 MILLION illegals now in our country, be VERY vigilant on any types of schemes such as the Mail-In Ballot BS!

There is no cure for stupid , ya just can’t fix it . A brain transplant has not happened yet !

are you sure brain has not been replaced or removed, biden is too stupid to be alive

The progressive and leftists will not go quietly in to the ash bin of history. Their ideology has collapsed under the weight of its own contradictions but they will not give up on their magical thinking and skewed public policies. They simply deny the concept of ‘citizen’ in our Constitutional Republic and deny the divine source of our liberties. That inconsistency makes them irrelevant to a free people who happen to be numerous and armed. Liberty shall prevail because freedom loving people will defend liberty at any cost. So, progressives, get very used to that ideal. Open defiance of your… Read more »

Too many people have a simple and basic misunderstanding about “gun control.” “Gun control” is not now, and has never been, about crime, criminals, or public safety. Quite frankly, the Left couldn’t give a rat’s behind about crime, criminals, or public safety. 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 since the 1960s and, thanks to the stolen elections of November 2020 and January 2021, are now in the process of consolidating. The key word in the term “gun control” is… Read more »

Have we EVER seen ANY gun law in the United States that actually SAVED a life?

Ope

Nope,but we’ve seen plenty that have cost lives.

Unconstitutional.

F’ those traitors in congress

Their Chinese masters have demanded that Americans be disarmed. The Chinese Occupation Army Mission (CHOAM)….Obama’s favorite moniker) will not deploy unless America is disarmed.

Poor Communist bastards! Built all those aircraft carriers for nothing

Also, MANY for some reason have not followed the recent deployments of our Marines in the Southern Pacific… https://www.military.com/daily-news/2020/09/24/changes-are-coming-marines-deployments-pacific.html The importance of THIS type of information is to pay close attention as to WHERE our troops are being deployed and WHO is filling in the gaps left behind here at home as they are deployed across the globe. https://www.19fortyfive.com/2021/08/u-s-military-to-build-news-bases-in-the-pacific-to-counter-china/ What kinds of manpower and strength do we have in watching our “back door” from threats that the current administration is NOT paying attention too as well as their feeble attempts to disarm the population leaving us open and at risk… Read more »

A few tens of people caused a stir on Jan6th, and the suits in Congress were scared shitless. That, most certainly, created a concern among them; they really did bite the bullet. Now, they are considering what would happen if all 100+ million of us get fed up with them and bust out our 25+ million ARs. They (Congress) are just a few hundred people who are paid to represent us in govt, and with few exceptions, they have no respect for any of us. They treat us as if we are the enemy. Imagine that if you question their… Read more »

You are exactly correct and you lay out very succinctly WHY everyone needs to participate by voting and volunteering to be a poll watcher in your respected county. Granted, we might have to get off our substantial asses and push away from the keyboard long enough to make a difference, but we can and should be doing it, if not for us freedom loving Americans, then do it “for the children!” You would be surprised what just 1 motivated person can do in your neighborhood, be that person. We are on the attack, the dims are losing, time for us… Read more »

LOL. If there was “proof” that water was wet IiberaIs would pass a Iaw decIaring it to be “dry” and anyone claiming otherwise would be fined or jailed.

Wild Bill

Yeah and change the definitions.

gregs

didn’t work before, won’t work now, but data and statistics don’t bother the woke progressives (of either party).
would have saved paper if they had listed what firearms we are able to possess.
page 123 makes it illegal to buy a firearm for your spouse or someone else without going through a background check for both parties.
f’ing insane.

HR 1808 is draconian and must be stopped at ALL cost!

Would’ve never gotten out of committee had Lucky (La)Pierre’s “Winning Team” not given A grades to gun grabbers & grifted $BILLIONS that should’ve gone to elections

Stag

Kinda like the NFA, GCA, Mulford Act, Hughes Amendment, import bans, NICS, red flag laws, and FixNICS that your favorite organization supported. Let’s not forget all those A grades that organization gave to politicians who are gonna vote with the Democrats on this.
