Washington State governor and AG want to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines

This past Thursday, Washington State AG Bob Ferguson made an announcement, along with support from Governor Jay Inslee, that they will seek to ban assault weapons. They also want to propose limits to magazine capacity in order to combat mass shootings.

Excerpts from his announcement:

“In addition to renewing calls to ban the sale of these dangerous weapons and limits to magazine capacity, Ferguson is also proposing legislation to add background checks on ammunition sales after federal rules are changed, in addition to other safety measures to keep ammunition out of the hands of dangerous individuals.

“This is the time to take action on common sense measures that will save lives. We should be making it harder for those who want to inflict mass violence and destruction upon innocent people,” Inslee said. “By limiting magazine capacity and banning assault weapons, we can work toward a day where no one in Washington state loses a friend or family members to senseless gun violence.”

Ferguson and Inslee are proposing joint-request legislation to limit the capacity of magazines sold in Washington to 10-rounds.

The bill’s definition to assault weapons is similar to the definition used by the seven other states that have banned the sale of assault weapons — semi-automatic weapons that contain at least one military-style feature. Those laws have survived legal challenge.”

There’s also this stupid part of his proposal: “The bill makes it illegal for violent felons not legally allowed to buy guns to buy ammo, and prohibits firearms dealers from knowingly selling ammo to the or anyone else not legally allowed to buy a gun.”

Such a vague description of what a “military-style feature” is in this announcement. My guess is this feature:

Because we all know what the end goal is of gun-grabbers: Take away your guns.

This is Chiraq: 14-year-old girl hits victim with pellet gun; victim fires back using handgun & both are arrested

Couple lessons to be learned here: 1) You cannot protect yourself in strict gun-controlled Chiraq unless you have ALL the licenses THEY deem necessary (or you are a criminal and don’t care about gun control laws) and 2) Never meet anyone in person from an online transaction without a buddy in tow.

There’s a third lesson here which is the obvious: Stay far, far away from Chiraq.

From Fox News: A teenage girl who was shot in the chest in a Chicago neighborhood Friday night is now facing an attempted robbery charge after officials said she tried to rob a woman she was meeting for a sale.

The Chicago Police Department said in a news release on Saturday the incident happened around 5:45 p.m. in the city’s Little Village neighborhood, when 21-year-old Araceli Diaz met with the 14-year-old girl after the teenager arranged the meeting to buy a dog.

When the 14-year-old met up with Diaz, officials said the teen pulled out a pellet gun, struck the 21-year-old on the head with it and tried to take the dog without paying for it.

“We’re not sure where they met initially or how they communicated, but all we do know is that the 14-year-old did show up with other intentions and she pulled out a BB gun,” Chicago Police Officer Jose Jara told FOX32.

In response, Diaz then allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot the girl in the chest.

Chicago Police said in a news release the 21-year-old was found to have a valid Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification card, or FOID card, to possess a weapon, but no concealed carry license.

Diaz was subsequently arrested in Cicero about an hour after the shooting and charged with unlawful use of a weapon, according to police.

The 14-year-old was transported to an area hospital where she was treated for her gunshot wound before she was arrested Saturday morning and charged with attempted armed robbery. She is scheduled to appear in juvenile court on Dec. 9.

Chicago police said that Diaz is scheduled to appear in court on Sunday.

“A BB gun can appear like a real gun and to anyone out there it’s gonna appear like a real gun, to the police, and to any individual, and if someone’s carrying and they have their own CCL they may use their own gun to defend themselves,” Jara told FOX32.

Gun-controlled California: Suspects linked to Orinda Halloween gang-related shooting were prohibited possessors

Dones and Johnson: Not worried about the safety of CA citizens/AP photos

Last Halloween a shooting took place at an Airbnb rental in Orinda, CA. Five people were shot and killed. The party had been advertised on social media. Many of the guests in attendance were rival gang members.

Just earlier in October Governor Newsom signed 15 MORE gun control laws “aimed at strengthening gun control and the gun violence restraining order program.”

According to Gov. Newsom, “California is once again leading the nation in passing meaningful gun safety reforms.”

ABC 10 reported at the time that former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, co-founder of Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence said, “The legislative package Governor Newsom signed today will help make California safer for all who call it home.”

Guess two felons in possession of handguns missed the memo about keeping California safer.

SF Gate reports that two suspects associated with the Orinda shooting – Domico Dones and Frederick Johnson – were arrested and charged with felon in possession of a handgun with a laser scope and ammunition (Dones) and similar charges for Johnson (who also faced an additional charge of child endangerment).

Agents with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives linked a gun used in the shooting in Orinda to other shootings in the Bay Area. More from the SF Gate report:

“It wasn’t clear whether Dones and Johnson were at the unsanctioned Oct. 31 party at an Airbnb rental house in Orinda. Authorities said they couldn’t discuss how their arrests relate to the shooting investigation because it remains active.

Dones and Johnson were not among five people who were arrested last week in connection with the shooting. Four of them were then released after Contra Costa county prosecutors said they didn’t have enough evidence to file charges.

The East Bay Times reports the fifth suspect remain held on an unrelated probation violation.

The ATF is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to arrests or convictions in the case.

Rival gang members and people armed with guns were among the more than 100 people who were at the party that was promoted on social media as an “Airbnb mansion party,” authorities said. Investigators said they believe an altercation that started in the kitchen led to gunfire and that there were multiple shooters.”

Demorats will never admit one obvious truth:

Triggered: Columnist receives holiday email from gun manufacturer that “killed” his holiday spirit

Columnist John Crudele received an email from Henry Repeating Arms that advertised for the Christmas season. Apparently the content of the email offended Crudele so much that he wrote a column about his feelings.

His NY Post column published yesterday was entitled, “A nauseating Christmas gun ad killed my holiday spirit.”

Crudele writes about how he’s shot guns and understands “that thrill.”

But an email from a gun manufacturer trying to sell guns as a Christmas gift is “despicable.”

Read his whole traumatic experience here.

One has to wonder how Crudele ended up receiving an email from Henry Repeating Arms in the first place if he deems guns so offensive.

And one has to wonder why he isn’t able to delete junk mail he doesn’t want to see.

And in particular one has to wonder why the man who, when he did shoot, chose to shoot an Uzi. But he now suddenly has to complain that “companies like this give people who don’t like guns a reason to continue their dislike for them.”

Well, wonder no longer. From a column Crudele wrote in 2016: “Here’s why I’m all for gun control.”

I highly doubt Crudele was seriously taken aback by Henry Repeating Arms’ email. Fortunately for him it just worked out to magically transition into an anti-gun rant column in time for his next deadline!

Womyn tells people how they can best protect their family: get a life insurance policy and not a gun

I thought progressives were all about choice? Oh wait, that only applies to killing babies.

Mommy Gabrielle Blair knows what’s best for you…

Some woman on Twitter named Gabrielle Blair tweeted some personal opinions about how you should protect your family. She describes herself as mother of 6 and a best-selling NYT author. Here ‘ya go:

There are far better ways to protect your family than a gun. Get a life insurance policy. I know you truly believe that you’ll need to defend your family at gunpoint. You need to let that go.

Statistically it’s just not going to happen. I know it’s boring, but if you want to protect your family, things like seatbelts, fire alarms, and life insurance are your best bet.

The reality is, you’re probably going to die of heart disease or diabetes, or just old age and natural causes. I know it’s not as cool-sounding as an armed-standoff, but it’s still true.

If the topic of protecting your family comes up, a gun extremist will immediately imagine an armed intruder who has come to murder. That’s not going to happen. It’s rare enough that it’s not something people need to worry about or make decisions based on.

If the topic of protecting your family comes up among people who actually interact and care for children each day, they think of things like using car seats, preventing hormones and dangerous chemicals in food, child-proofing the cleaning supplies, and schoolyard bullying.

Hundreds and hundreds of you have explained to me that a life insurance policy won’t protect against an armed intruder. I never said it would. The thing you don’t understand: There isn’t going to be an armed intruder. That’s just your paranoia.

A gun in the home is FAR more likely to kill or maim a household member than it is to protect them. Enjoy your daydreams about armed stand-offs. But that’s all they are. Daydreams.”

FYI Gabrielle, everyone has different life experiences and is entitled to protect their own family AS THEY SEE FIT (provided it’s legal).

Several years ago I had a minor, prohibited possessor living down the street from me – one who liked to commit armed robberies yet couldn’t be thrown in jail because of his age. Said punk broke into my next-door neighbor’s home – WITH A GUN – and my neighbor had to shoot him to protect himself. Unfortunately he missed the kid.

The good news is the punk continued with his hobby after he turned 18 and is now in prison for some time.

While my boyfriend was on duty one night, two hooded “youths” came knocking on my door. I turned on/off lights to indicate someone was home and grabbed my revolver. I eventually saw them walk away and get into a van across the street and take off. I don’t believe they were going door-to-door selling Girl Scout cookies.

Before I moved to Oklahoma, I had someone on FOTM threaten my life. The threat was very credible and I filed a complaint with the local Sheriff and the feds. I lived alone at the time and was very concerned for my safety.

This womyn couldn’t be more wrong about believing that we girls who like firearms for protection are dreaming of a standoff. I don’t believe she actually knows a woman who owns firearms.

I could have a conversation with her and explain about my firearm training and why I believe it’s an equalizer for me, the extended periods of time I may be alone, and the criminal elements that live in my neighborhood.

But that would involve her actually listening to MY opinions and trusting that I know what’s best for ME.

Plus I don’t think get I’d get too far in a conversation with a womyn who believes that unplanned pregnancies are always men’s fault because condoms are more readily available than the pill.

You cannot win a debate up against “liberal logic.”

Update: In typical progressive fashion, this womyn muted her thread. Shocker, not.

The solution to Baltimore’s milestone homicides? Sue gun manufacturers!

No one is responsible for their personal actions except for the law-abiding people demorats want to control: Gun manufacturers and firearm owners.

Demorats NEVER, NEVER let facts get in the way of reaching their utopian goals.

According to the Baltimore Sun’s report on November 14, the demorat-run city (which hasn’t had a republican mayor since 1967) has hit 300 homicides for the fifth year in a row.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said that to address the “culture of violence” in Baltimore, there must be programs offering young men a path away from a life of crime.

Apparently former mayor Catherine Pugh’s “Squeegee Boys” program wasn’t the correct pathway.

So what is the progressive politicians’ solution to the out-of-control gun violence in their city? Lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

WBAL TV reports that the city of Baltimore is seriously considering following the lead of Sandy Hook families and suing gun manufacturers. From their report:

“City Solicitor Andre Davis said that escalating violence is why he will legally go after gun manufacturers to hold them responsible if Sandy Hook families succeed in their cases, he said.

Andre Davis and former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh

“That decision by the court of appeals a couple of weeks ago was a breakthrough because congress has created immunity for these gun manufacturers that, up until now, has been impenetrable and this recent decision is the first small crack in the wall and we will continue to monitor it,” Davis said.”

Read the WBAL story here.

The “crack in the wall” is Baltimore’s leadership, gang violence and prosecution of violent criminals, which republican governor Larry Hogan wants to address.

But that, of course, is deemed racist by progressives.

Enjoy your record homicide rates, Baltimore!

Suing gun manufacturers for the actions of your criminal citizens will have absolute ZERO effect on murder rates and gun violence. You CANNOT legislate and sue enough people to ensure that CRIMINALS will obey gun control laws. THEY DON’T CARE about your laws.

Time to celebrate! Chiraq goes one full day without a shooting

Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot

Mayor Lightfoot must be so proud. Oh wait, they still have over 2,400 people shot this year.

Imagine living in a city where a day without a shooting warrants a headline story.

From MyFoxChicago: Chicago went more than a full day without a reported shooting, from Sunday night into early Tuesday. There were no gunshot victims from 10:02 p.m. Sunday until 12:43 a.m. Tuesday, according to Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago police records.

Fourteen people were shot on Sunday, the last of which was a 17-year-old boy wounded in Little Village on the Southwest Side.

He was inside a vehicle about 10:02 p.m. in the 2800 block of South Spaulding Avenue when a black SUV approached and someone inside fired shots, police said. The boy was struck in the leg and taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital in good condition.

More than 26 hours went by in Chicago without a shooting with injuries until early Tuesday.

The streak was broken at 12:43 a.m., when a 15-year-old boy was walking in West Lawn in the 7100 block of South Lawndale Avenue and heard gunfire, police said. He was shot in the lower back and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious condition, police said.

On March 21, Chicago recorded 28 hours without a shooting victim.

The first day of 2019 without a reported shooting in Chicago was Jan. 14, although two people were hurt in accidental discharges that day.

So far in 2019, at least 407 people have been killed in gun violence in Chicago, according to Sun-Times records.

How can this be happening? Multiple high-profile shootings in California during past month

California has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. This includes age restrictions, gun registration, limit on ammunition purchases and red flag laws.

Just last month Governor Newsom just signed into law an additional 15 new gun control laws. He said at the time: “Gun violence is an epidemic in this country, one that’s been inflamed by the inaction of politicians in Washington. While Washington has refused to act on even the most basic gun safety reforms, California is once again leading the nation in passing meaningful gun safety reforms.”

How’s that gun control working in California? Here’s some latest headlines from California:

Police search for suspects in California shooting, 4 killed & 6 wounded
Suspected gunman, 16, in California high school shooting dies in hospital
Father’s murder-suicide leaves mother, three children dead, police say
5 arrested in connection with deadly shooting at Airbnb Halloween party

Here’s the thing gun-grabbing politicians will NEVER learn: You can never create enough gun control laws that will stop people intent on committing criminal actions.

Unfortunately this idea is not entertained by the politicians. They are only intent on their ultimate goal: gun confiscation.

Pregnant woman protects family with an AR-15; one perp dead

Score one for the Second Amendment.

From Fox News: A Florida woman who was eight-months pregnant and came out wielding an AR-15 rifle reportedly saved her husband and pre-teen daughter last week from a pair of violent intruders who’d broken into the family’s home — with the gun-toting matriarch fatally striking one of the men, who was later found dead in a nearby ditch.

Jeremy King was at his home in Lithia, 25 miles southeast of Tampa, at 9 p.m. Wednesday night when two armed men, wearing masks and hoods, broke inside.

“As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” King told Bay News 9. “I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you,’ and they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.”

King said one of the burglars pistol-whipped him and another kicked him in the head, creating a commotion that attracted the attention of his wife, who walked into the room to see what the noise was — and soon found herself dodging a bullet.

The woman, who was not identified, reportedly retreated and grabbed an AR-15 that was legally inside their house, returning to the room and shooting the intruders, hitting one of them.

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said of his wife. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

The man was later found dead in the ditch, according to the news outlet. The other burglar fled when his friend was shot.

“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me,” King said, noting he suffered a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity and a concussion, and needed “20 stitches and three staples in my head.”

Neither of the intruders was publicly identified by authorities.
—————————-

And because the media can’t let facts get in the way of their narratives, CNN reported that the woman used an “automatic rifle” to shoot the intruders. They corrected their error two hours later.
