In January, Senator Feinstein will introduce a bill to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devices.
Click the link above to see the bullet point summary of the bill. Brian Adams says on our Facebook page,”So now Feinstein is going after all weapons that have ‘one military characteristic’ (as of yet undefined) and semi-automatic weapons that CAN accept a 10+ round magazine. That is essentially every modern full size pistol (except 1911′s). And is requiring a national registry of ‘grandfathered firearms’.”
I pulled this off Twitter “DRUDGE: FEINSTEIN BILL REQUIRES ‘GRANDFATHERED WEAPONS BE REGISTERED’… OWNERS TO BE FINGERPRINTED.”
Marc Barrie, also on our Facebook page points us to this prefiled legislation by Senator Bright South Carolina Firearms Freedom Act:
TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING ARTICLE 9 TO CHAPTER 31, TITLE 23, TO ENACT THE “SOUTH CAROLINA FIREARMS FREEDOM ACT”, TO PROVIDE THAT A FIREARM, FIREARM ACCESSORY, OR AMMUNITION MANUFACTURED AND RETAINED IN SOUTH CAROLINA IS EXEMPT FROM FEDERAL REGULATION UNDER THE COMMERCE CLAUSE OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

The Tenth Amendment Center sent around model legislation entitled “2nd Amendment Preservation Act” which any state can take and enact.
To prevent federal infringement on the right to keep and bear arms; nullifying all federal acts in violation of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF (STATE) DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
SECTION 1 The legislature of the State of ____________ finds that:
A. The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as follows, вЂњA well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.вЂќ
B. All federal acts, laws, orders, rules or regulations regarding firearms are a violation of the 2nd Amendment
SECTION 2 PROHIBITION ON FEDERAL INFRINGEMENT OF THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS
A. The Legislature of the State of _______________ declares that all federal acts, laws, orders, rules, regulations вЂ“ past, present or future вЂ“ in violation of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States are not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violate its true meaning and intent as given by the Founders and Ratifiers, and are hereby declared to be invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.
B. It shall be the duty of the legislature of this State to adopt and enact any and all measures as may be necessary to prevent the enforcement of any federal acts, laws, orders, rules, or regulations in violation of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
SECTION 3 EFFECTIVE DATE
A. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Already eight states have passed firearms freedom acts including Montana, Alaska, South Dakota, Arizona, Idaho, Tennessee, Utah and Wyoming.
It ought to be a piece of cake to find a Rep and a Senator to put that into the legislative mill.
Suggest everyone call their Senator and Representative, asking to support Senator Bright’s legislation and if they would be willing to put up a bill based on the Tenth Amendment Center model legislation.
Can we get this done the first week? If not, shame. SHAME!
