Dems Try to Sneak Gun Control Regulations into Cybersecurity Bill

Leading Democrats offered new gun control limitations to the Senate cybersecurity bill.

Democrats were quick to play politics following the massacre last week at a Colorado theater.

Chuck Schumer led the charge.
The Hill reported:

Democratic senators have offered an amendment to the cybersecurity bill that would limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers.

Shortly after the Cybersecurity Act gained Senate approval to proceed to filing proposed amendments and a vote next week, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a sponsor of the gun control amendment, came to the floor to defend the idea of implementing some “reasonable” gun control measures.

The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Schumer and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.). S.A. 2575 would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition.

The amendment is identical to a separate bill sponsored by Lautenberg. Feinstein was the sponsor of the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004.

    Never let a crisis go to waste.

  • BarbaraS

    And never let an opportunity to restrict our freedom go by either. That is the entire platform the dims dare not voice, but it is their true one. This is not the party of the little guy anymore and hasn’t been for decades if ever. The dims are just good at pandering at the wet dreams of the drones and buying their votes even if dead.

    Bring it.

    What are ya waitn’ for, Democrats ?

    Put it out there.

    You know you want to.

    Give it it’s own legislation.

    Move to invalidate/repeal the 2nd Amendment and disarm civilians.

    Go for it.

    We’re waiting.

    By the way, there’s no threat in anything here.

    But there is a promise.

    Romney ads should not simply ask if you are better off than you were 4 years ago….

    They should ask if you are less free than you were 4 years ago ????

    Then list all the freedoms we have lost and the liberals have proposed.

    Smoking privledges, Freedom to choose not to buy health insurance, gun restrictions, EPA and water regulations, etc etc etc.

    Notice how the sponsors of the bill ALL are from states that already have repressive control laws on their books. NY., NJ., RI., & CA. They aren’t satisfied with denying their citizens their 2nd ammendment rights, they want to go Nation wide.

  • Militant conservative

    KS, I’ll go there.

    The 2nd is for us to protect

    Ourselves from tyrannical

    politicians such as the

    sponsors of this bill.

    It’s Friday and it’s the last working day of the week. The White Clingers will be drinking beer or enjoying a good meal their families. They will never know what hit them!

    This is a good time for a legislative ambush! I want the Clinger’s guns, magazines, money and medical records. So, I sneaked in the first of many gun controls into a benign piece of cyber warfare legislation. It’s sure to pass. It will catch the Clingers by surprise! Ha-ha!

    Let me be clear, I was for gun control before I was against it. And, I am for it again. I can lie with the best of them.

    That is more than I can say for my opponent. His religion precludes him from lying. I can lie with impunity – the MSM will cover for me. David Axelrod put in a full days work making this crappy piece of legislation… something he rarely does!

    If you like the way I cut midnight deals with my donkey cronies then you should vote for me. Send me $300.00 before midnight. My campaign is going broke!

    My bus has a bent axel and David Axelrod has a fresh scam for my Union donors. It’s the old “bait and switch” scam. Besides, my union donors always vote for me. I say screw them! I cannot answer anymore questions. Good day.

    Cowardly, crooked lawyers. Shameful that people vote for this scum time after time after time. They are just pandering to their lobbyist (Tides, Brady) groups. They don’t have the courage to put it to its own bill.

    Notice how these sh*tbags don’t seem all the concerned by the coming election? Notice how all the congressional dems are still for the most part voting down the party line against the wishes of their constituents? Too cocky. They know Hussein is going to attempt to rig the election, if not outright steal it.

  • Kenny Solomon

    #11 – CoolidgeRules….. “They know Hussein is going to attempt to rig the election, if not outright steal it.”

    That’s assuming we’ll get to November 6th without the #HeilObama administration staging something or allowing a ‘nudge’ from outside to trip the wire so they’re ‘forced’ to suspend the elections until things ‘settle down’.

    Wait……… What’s wrong with me ?……… I keep forgetting the meme: “It can’t happen here”……… Never mind anything I said………. Teh Olympicals are on and El Guapo’s wife is leading the US delegation in all it’s flag-dipping glory.

  • http://none tommy mc donnell

    like someone here pointed out a few days ago there are 2000 state and federal gun control laws. this is just an attempt to pass another useless law by the most pandering, incompent, ineffective legislators in our history.

    i’m sure holmes would have never done what he did if it was againist the law.

  • juandos

    Oh yeah! Leave it to the seditious & parasitic tards to want to put productive people in harm’s way…

    That reminds me speaking of unarmed victims slaughtered in another so called No Gun Zone (called a free fire zone by the twisted bastards who mock those stupid sighs) why is this damn administration dragging its collective feet over that mooselimb bastard Nidal Hasan?

  • LiberalsRstupid

    If I were a Democrat I would be desperate to take the guns from American Citizens too. I would be worried the Population is going to rise up against me for being a corrupt incompetent liar that spends his days attacking other Americans for being American and gives illegals every benefit.

  • Maria

    What always amazes me is that Cybersecurity has nothing to do with guns. I love it how they are constantly trying to sneak things into bills. Like gold regulations in the healthcare bill.

  • baseballguy

    Easy-peasy why these things are attached to other bills – that way they can claim “THEY did that” or “I didn’t realize” or “I couldn’t vote against all the other good stuff” defense if it passes.
    Not my job man.

    As I have noted before, Democraps are slimy born out of wedlock slugs, and I’ll remind you again during the Carter years they tried a similar ploy by trying to make it illegal to sale or purchase ammunition by slipping it into a down to the wire budget bill, fortunately it was found and squashed. Something that needs to happen to all Progressive scums if we are to retain our freedoms.
    A question where in the Constitution do these pukes see a suggestion that the citizen are not allowed the same personal weapons that the average grunt carries. The weapon of the day was a musket or cap & ball.The Founders gave us that Right not for hunting but to allow us the ability to defend ourselves against a corrupt regime.
