Atlanta rep proposes bill that would require seizure of "assault" weapons

Rate this post

I highly doubt this bill will pass. But for a “representative” to even propose it shows just how little they care about your Constitutional rights.

Representative Mary Margaret Oliver is an Atlanta politician (democrat, of course) who represents Decatur, District 82. She’s been in politics since 1987. What’s astounding is that she has a law degree and continues to practice law in Decatur. Apparently she never studied Constitutional Law.

11 Alive reports that Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver is the sponsor of HB 371 which contains several unconstitutional provisions. The bill would designate some weaponry and ammunition as contraband and require seizure of such by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Some of the provisions in the bill would require training for licensed gun carriers, outlaw weapons in all public buildings, and restrict assault weapons and high caliber weapons.

Oliver called it a “strong bill,” and admitted the seizure provision may be problematic (gee, ya think?). “I’m not wedded to the specific principle of confiscating guns,” said Oliver. “I am open to an honest discussion – if I’m allowed to have an honest discussion – if there’s a better way.”
CNS has a summary of some of the bill’s provisions:

  • Requires “assault weapons” and “high caliber weapons” not turned in by owners to be seized by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
  • Any selective fire firearm capable of fully automatic, semiautomatic, or burst fire at the option of the user would be banned.
  • Ban a semiautomatic rifle or pistol with a fixed magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds.
  • A semiautomatic center-fire rifle that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has a folding or telescoping stock or a pistol grip would fall under the definition of “assault weapon” under the proposal.

  1. LOL – Trust me.
    Nobody in this town takes this brainless idiot even remotely seriously.

  2. Somebody needs to educate these STUPID people BEFORE they are allowed to run for office, seems like the bigger the IDIOT the quicker they get elected, just like Johnson that thinks that Guam will turn over because we put a few Marines on the Island, where do they dig up these MORONS, they need to rebury them before they infect anyone else with STUPIDITY!
    The Constitution is NOT to be messed with you dip$hit! This Socialist Progressive Dumocrat Government has to GO! Semper Fi.

  3. If this STUPID person would check, Hammers have killed more people than assault weapons. AND if she were so concerned she would enforce the laws that are already on the books. Any gang member caught with a weapon is an automatic 5 years, MANDATORY!!! But they catch one then automatically release them, DAAA! NOW they want to take away all the guns from senior citizens, as if they don’t have enough to worry about with the sorry government cutting their SS. This government makes the citizens the enemy, but brings Rapist and Murders right to your front door, so REALLY, WHO is our enemy? Semper Fi.

  4. Mary Margaret Oliver will be 68 years old this March. (From the pic, I thought she was older, LOL.)
    She’s a career politician: a Congresswoman for 14 years, since 2002; and before that, a state rep and senator for 11 years, from 1987 to 1998. Being a politician is the only job where there is no mandatory retirement age. That should tell us being one is so lucrative and compelling that most of them only quit when they’re horizontal.

  5. If these “progressive” crackpots have their way, this too would be redefined as an assault weapon (if it hasn’t been, already!):

  6. my definition of an “assault weapon” would include HER MOUTH, so can we have that removed?

  8. The South lost the Civil War; and now you want them without a way to protect them from you?

  9. I gave my statement very awkwardly.
    “The South Lost the Civil War. Now we know we may have to be able to protect ourselves again.”
    Think of Bundy Ranch, Waco, and Ruby Ridge.

  10. I would guess she is going on the assumption that the 30,000 deaths per year here by guns are all murder and is ignoring the fact that over 20,000 of them are from suicide,
    That more people die from drugs, medical malpractice and 7 other reasons before guns.
    I don’t know about her, but if I were at home with my children and someone was breaking down my door and I knew the police are 5-7 minutes away, I will opt for having a gun first.
    I assume she lives in a gated area with possibly a big fence and maybe a guard, that would carry a gun. The very things she would deny the people. I can’t imagine her living out there alone on the open market.

  11. Ah, Southern Democrats and gun control… whether about those uppity negros or everyone else, they’ve always liked keeping people disarmed and helpless.

  12. You people are being way to hard on miss PIGGY. Cut her a break, obviously she is a complete loon.
