Democrats Don’t Care Whether Banning ‘Assault Weapons’ Is Constitutional

I am with Stupid Democrats

Washington, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)- A week before the House of Representatives approved a ban on “assault weapons,” a federal judge in Denver explained why such laws are unlikely to pass constitutional muster.

House Democrats either were not paying attention or did not care because they view the Second Amendment as an outmoded provision that imposes no meaningful limits on gun control.

Unfortunately for them, the Supreme Court has repeatedly held otherwise, ruling that the government may not prohibit law-abiding Americans from keeping handguns at home or carrying them in public for self-defense. The Court also has said the Second Amendment covers bearable arms “in common use” for “lawful purposes,” which presents a problem for Democrats who want to ban many of the most popular rifles sold in the United States.

On July 22, 2022, U.S. District Judge Raymond P. Moore, an Obama appointee, issued a temporary restraining order that bars Superior, Colorado, from enforcing its ban on “assault weapons.” The city defines that category to include semi-automatic center-fire rifles that accept detachable magazines and have any of four features: a pistol grip, a folding or telescoping stock, a flash suppressor, or a barrel shroud.

Two gun-rights groups argued that Superior’s ordinance, which also bans magazines that hold more than ten rounds, violated the Second Amendment. Moore concluded that they had “a strong likelihood of success on the merits.”

Moore noted that the plaintiffs had cited statistics to support their claim that the guns and magazines targeted by Superior’s ordinance “are commonly used by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes.” He also mentioned an earlier case in his court where both sides had stipulated that “semiautomatic firearms are commonly used for multiple lawful purposes, including self-defense,” and that “lawfully owned semiautomatic firearms using a magazine with the capacity of greater than 15 rounds number in the tens of millions.”

Under the Supreme Court’s test, Moore said, those facts mean that “the right to possess, sell, or transfer” the arms covered by Superior’s ordinance is “presumptively protected.” The burden is therefore on the city to show that its ban is “consistent with the Nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation.”

That will be a formidable challenge, Moore suggested. “The Court is unaware of historical precedent that would permit a governmental entity to entirely ban a type of weapon that is commonly used by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes, whether in an individual’s home or in public,” he said.

Like Superior’s ordinance, the bill that the House narrowly approved on July 29 covers “large capacity” magazines and includes a general definition of “assault weapons,” although its list of prohibited features is slightly different. It also bans many specific models by name.

During the debate over the bill, Democrats said the rifles they want to ban are “the weapon of choice for mass shooters,” which is not true: Most mass shooters use handguns. Democrats said the features targeted by the bill make rifles especially deadly, which also is not true: With or without those features, a rifle fires the same ammunition at the same rate with the same muzzle velocity.

Even while implying that the rifles covered by the ban are good for nothing but mass murder, Democrats emphasized that the bill would exempt the 24 million or so “assault weapons” that Americans already own. They refused to grapple with the constitutional implications of banning guns that millions of people use for lawful purposes.

When confronted by that reality, Republicans noted, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said, “The problem is that they are in common use.” Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), the bill’s sponsor, likewise had no patience for Second Amendment arguments, saying, “Spare me the BS about constitutional rights.”

Unlike Nadler and Cicilline, federal judges like Moore cannot ignore the constitutional issue raised by this sort of legislation. Democrats will have to comply with the constraints imposed by the Second Amendment, no matter how much they might wish that it did not exist.

I think a Trump POTUS ,DeSantis VP is the way to go myself.

Ope

CB,I’m not sure if President Trump will pick Desantis as his VP running mate or not. There are many others Trump could pick from with more political success and experience than Desantis. What I really like about Desantis is he speaks his mind and speaks the truth. He won’t pander to and molly coddle the lilly livered,.candy assed socialists. President Trump and Desantis have very similar personalities and that’s a great thing. We will find out soon who President
Trump chooses as his VP running mate.

Ope

USMC,President Trump will easily win re-election in ‘24. President Trump is the Republican Party ! Trump has a proven record as President. There’s not another Republican contender that even comes close. He could very well pick TEXAS Governor Greg Abbott as his VP running mate. Abbott has done great things for TEXAS and continues to. He would carry that “get it done” expertise as VP also.

Russn8r

Nice try TEX. DeSantis was 2nd in the CPAC poll. Cuck Abbott flat-lined. TexCons know he’s all hat, no cattle

*Abbott cut vote fraud to a misdemeanor, SAYS he wants it a felony again, won’t call special session to actually do it. KABUKI

*Blocked ban on child sex change after he & Phelan took $250k from sex-change mills, won’t call special session to ban it. KABUKI

*Mexican governors dishonor his KABUKI deals & he does ZIP to enforce them. His chain-link “wall” is a joke. Wastes taxpayer $ on voluntary free rides for illegals who were going to DC anyway

Abbott has been, for the most part, an acceptible governor. But he has made his mistakes, and some big ones. Supporting the damned “green energy” debacle comes to mind; and not holding Ercott responsible for the power grid mess we are in…as in, “Ercott, harden and winterize every generation plant and length of xmission cable out-of-pocket; you have already been paid for it.

I am so sick and tired of hearing the words assault weapon. A cast iron skillet can be one or anything else used to do harm to another person. Even a kid in school shooting spit balls with a rubber band is an assault weapon

Maybe if we were to take cast iron skillets and gong the heads of antigun tyrants and quisling activists, then hand them the skillet and say, “Here, I’m surrendering the only ‘assault weapon’ I have!!”

I get equally irritated by the whole “weapons of war” nonsense. The idiots actually believe that ‘weapons of war’ are bad! Yet, the purpose of the 2nd Amendment was/is that private citizens would possess weapons of war equal to, or greater than, anything the government had!

Even the most rudimentary understanding of simple high school physics proves that the cosmetic differences of two firearms can not make one more deadly than the other when shooting the same ammunition. The logic used by “assault weapon” fearmongers is akin to saying that cosmetic changes such as paint colors, tow hitches, roll bars, or headlights make cars go faster.

But those who desire to see such a ban care nothing for facts and simple truth. These ban seekers have a different agenda.

Russn8r

True. Over-immigration servers many purposes. Destroys real wages & opportunities for what used to be good jobs for unskilled Americans, drives up cost of living, real estate & “housing”, pushes Americans on welfare, makes life a rat race so responsible child-bearing is less affordable and Americans do less of it – replacement. Fuel for Elon Musk’s bogus hand wringing about a “population collapse”, even while the population is surging from immigration & anchor babies. Musk has some great qualities, but that is not one of them. Like other oligarchs, he wants an ever-rising supply of “cheap labor” serfs.

Henry Bowman

Clearly, someone had a brain-fart when proofreading this. Gun control is inherently racist and is rooted in oppressing newly-freed blacks. The only ‘regulation’ I accept regarding guns is regulating the MILITIA according to a common doctrine. Also, everyone should do a 3-year stint in a revamped National Guard (but NO standing army), be issued a select-fire rifle and at the end of the 3 years be issued two sealed battle-packs of ammo and get to take that home with one’s issued rifle (machine gun) as personal property.

“Libertarian” thinking is sound until it comes to borders & immigration limits. Then they’re blinded by dogma, can’t see their policy is inimical to property & ownership rights, government integrity, sovereignty, liberty, dignity, privacy, security, quality of life, standard of living, cost of living. It’s de facto globalist/socialist, dilutes & overwhelms ownership & voting control, analogous to handing out free shares of corporate stock to new “stakeholders” along the border. Might as well let the entire world start voting in our elections.

Open borders and immigration non-enforcement are hallmarks of the left-wing libertarians, and it is for that group that the Libertarian Party never garners more than 5% in any election. However there is a conservative side called anarchocapitalism, which is the wellspring of propertarian thought. AnCaps are hardcore anticommunists and believe in open “unregulated” markets.

leftists do not care about anything except accumulating power and wielding it over citizens. in our form of government the burden is on the government to prove someone is breaking the law not the other way. leftists think that we should have to prove that we need a firearm, then they can decide if we do need one and then which one with which features it has on it. if they were not such hypocrites they would give up the capital police force that protects them daily while they are infringing on our civil rights.

Agenda 2030 Welcome to the United Nations

Finally, the disarmament community can contribute to more inclusive global governance, an objective expressed in SDG targets 5.5 and 16.8. To achieve greater inclusivity, we need to further promote the equal and full participation of women in all disarmament decision-making processes and support the active participation of all States, especially developing countries, in disarmament forums. A more inclusive disarmament machinery will lead to more effective and sustainable policy outcomes in all areas of peace and security, and it should be a major focus of our efforts.
