All existing semi-rifles must be registered IAW NFA after having ROFSD installed. And if you are discovered pulling the trigger of your semi-auto more than once per 2 seconds you will be guilty, you lose your gun and are guilty of a felony. Most responsible ranges already prohibit rapid fire, so this is a simple, common sense, gun law that even the NRA should be able to get behind.

And why does anyone need drum magazines that hold 50 or 100 deadly bullets? These are unnecessary and illegal for deer hunting so they should be banned.

A guy and several of his buddies brake into your house wanting anything they can get. Do you want a firearm that will shoot only once every two seconds, or one that will shoot every time you pull the trigger no mater how fast? Would you rather have a five round magazine, or a thirty or sixty? Would you rather have a silencer on your firearm, or a loud ringing in your ears that gets more intense each time you pull the trigger? Not saying the silencer would knockout the noise and ringing, but it would not be as intense, especially with an SRB.

God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

Sadly, it's difficult to tell the difference between sarcasm and the things that the left actually support.

the union calendar is the primary calendar - if it involves $ it goes on it.
When any govt, or church,says This you can't read, are forbidden to know, the result is tyranny and oppression. Little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked; no force can control a free man, not the rack, bombs, not anything, you can't conquer a free man, at most you can kill him.

So, does that mean it’s scheduled or just that it’s on a list somewhere and might get scheduled maybe?

Does anyone have any more information about when this might come up for a vote. My thoughts is if this doesn't make it pretty soon it will probably be pushed to the side???

I’m thinking this has been pushed to the side due to gov shutdowns, debt ceilings, immigration, and fisa reauthorizations.

Maybe I’ll be proven wrong.
