    Nevada senate draconian ban on magazines

    Not sure if this is the place for it, but we need your support. Senator Segerblom (who led that ridiculous meeting last week only allowing anti-gun speakers) is attempting to pass a draconian ban on standard magazines as well as ammunition.

    Information is located on the NRA site here: http://www.nraila.org/legislation/st...to-nevada.aspx

    Please phone in your opposition or click the link below to voice your opinion the unconstitutional proposal. The bills are SB396 and AB234.

    SB396 bill applies to pump-action rifles, revolver shotguns, and olympic target pistols as well.

    Also, it effectively bans antique firearms for persons convicted of misdemeanors of domestic violence.

    I just read the whole bill.

    Who knew that Segerblom had such a sense of humor?

    Even the US Senate knows better than to try to pass something like this.

    Reading page 3 I see I wouldn't be able to have a semi-automatic pistol with:
    1) a forward grip
    2) a folding, telescoping, or thumbhole stock or
    3) a barrel shroud

    Does this guy even know what a handgun looks like?
    I stopped stocking for the zombie apocalypse. I now stock for the liberal apocalypse.

    Pink camo only works in San Francisco or at a Girls' Generation concert.
