H.R. 7115, introduced by New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone, and cosponsored by 16 other Democrats is set to redefine what the fictitious “assault weapon” is and make it illegal to advertise or import parts online for putting together kits.
From the Western Journal,
The stated purpose of the bill is “to prohibit the sale, acquisition, distribution in commerce, or import into the United States of certain firearm receiver castings or blanks, assault weapon parts kits, and machine gun parts kits and the marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications, to require homemade firearms to have serial numbers, and for other purposes.”
In laymen’s terms, and not the purposefully confusing legalese of legislation, the bill would completely ban the “do-it-yourself” 80 percent partial firearm receivers that people can complete themselves at home with the use of a few specific tools, as well as the additional parts necessary — typically sold as a kit — to produce a functioning semi-automatic firearm.
This will test the waters for future laws that slowly errode gun owners’ rights and strip away the Second Amendment one step at a time. Let’s hope veto power alone will be enough to stop this idiocy. And let’s also hope that voter fraud doesn’t end up giving the Democrats control of the Senate and Presidency or there will be no Second Amendment left at all.
The article continues,
As an aside, the language of the bill also appears to have dramatically widened the definition of what would constitute an “assault weapon” in that it defines such as “a semiautomatic rifle or semiautomatic shotgun that has the capacity to accept a detachable ammunition feeding device.”
Previously, so-called “assault weapons” were defined as semi-automatic rifles and shotguns that included at least one or two other features — such as adjustable stocks, pistol grips, forward grips, barrel shrouds, bayonet lugs, etc. — in addition to the “detachable ammunition feeding device” or removable magazine.
It should go without saying that the term “assault weapon” is completely made up and has no bearing on reality and really just means semi-automatic firearms, while “machine guns” — actual automatic weapons, which Democrats deliberately conflate with their semi-automatic counterparts — are already all but banned for the overwhelming majority of the general public.

Earlier this yeah another bill was proposed called H.R. 5087 that seeks to further define what an “assault weapon” is and make them illegal to purchase or possess. Among features that make up an assault weapon is barrel shrouds. We all know how dangerous those can be!
Make no mistake, Democrats hate guns and those that would have one to protect him/herself. This type of legislation is based on that hate and will have no effect on violent crime. They just want us disarmed and helpless, the very thing the Second Amendment was created to prevent.
Fight back, America! Your lives depend on it!
