    Levin co-sponsoring magazine ban

    Hopefully this bill will go nowhere thanks to the republicans controlling the house, but please keep this in mind next time levin is up for reelection. he supports every single antigun bill in the senate and it makes me sick. here's the bill and the list of cosponsors.


    Cosponsors:
    Barbara Boxer [D-CA]
    Richard Durbin [D-IL]
    Dianne Feinstein [D-CA]
    Al Franken [D-MN]
    Kirsten Gillibrand [D-NY]
    John Kerry [D-MA]
    Carl Levin [D-MI]
    Robert MenÚndez [D-NJ]
    John Reed [D-RI]
    Charles Schumer [D-NY]

    He, and Rep. Levin have been in office far too long. I've contacted them on several occasions, and every time, I've felt like they don't give a crap what I have to say.

    Same here, every time I have wrote to him I received a reply telling me why I was wrong and he was right. What really bothers me is they are supposed to represent the people of this state, but the people of this state do not support the type of gun control he advocates for, so he is only pursuing his own personal agenda. He even voted against the Vitter amendment!

    Hmmmm there seems to be some sort of a trend of this list of senators whom are co-sponsoring the bill. Oh man I just can not seem to put my finger on it. Maybe Slave will come along and help me figure it out. LOL. Just having fun.

    This is a surprise? Throw out any gun control bill and he's on it like stink on S#@t. Like white on rice, like ugly on an ape..... You get the idea. He really needs to retire, get voted out or die.

    Mr. Levin's emails to me always started out with "I thought you would be interested to know..." and then went on to brag about his latest accomplishments. The last time I corresponded with Mr. Levin was after receiving a reply to an email I sent him about some gun control thing that I don't even recall at the moment. His reply started with the usual "I thought you would be interested to know..." and then went on to tell me how he supports gun control. Well, I sent him a reply that started out...

    "I thought you would be interested to know" and then went on to tell him I was working tirelessly to get him voted out of office.

    For some strange reason I've not received any more missives from him or his office.

    But then a while back I sent an email to President Obama notifying him his services were no longer needed and he could clean out his desk and seek gainful employment in a field other than politics. Got no answer there either.... but probably am on yet another list.
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    Been working on that at every opportunity.

    I got one of those letters from Levin as well, after asking him to go against something once, cant recall, he went on to brag about being a co-sponsor of the AWB.

    Maybe the Arizona shooting wouldn't have happened if the shooter thought he might get 10 years for the possession of that magazine.

    He is a tyrant, and a career liar. An open liar at that. I have told him as much in writing.

    It's hard to say who should be more ashamed, him, or the fools who vote for him.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    It's never even close for any challenger. Ive been trying for 23 years.

    My only hope is that I am young enough to see them decide to not run for re-election, and then I fear the ones that will replace them.

    Levin is like a stain in your favorite garment, after many unsuccessful attempts to remove it you eventually throw it away.
    Someone who can't be trusted to walk free in public with a firearm shouldn't be walking around free.

    I think this will pass because they feel that they need to do something to make themselves feel better thinking that they did something.

    If this goes through, how will we go about getting it repealed?

    10 - The number of rounds they want to limit us to
    10 - The number of co-sponsors listed here
    10 - the maximum number of years found for someone having a new high capacity mag after this goes in.


    0 - the number of years for buffing off that new mark...

    What if the state of Michigan refuses to prosecute in this area of law as they do in others.

    It's a federal law (proposed). BATFE, the FBI, and DOJ are responsible for enforcement.

    You get busted for violating it, you go to Federal Court, and then Federal Pound-me-in-the-455 prison.

    State of MI not involved in enforcement.

    Also, the Federal government increases the number of BATFE employees so they can better find these evil people who wield high-cap magazines. They make the Federal Prison system larger to hold these evil doers. They declare a "war on high cap" magazines. The legal tax paying people in the country pay for it (via inflation from increased public debt or direct taxes). BTW, this is how the war on drug works also.

    Federal Stimulus Bill

    This is the new Federal Stimulus bill. Here's how it works:

    1. Scare the crap out of people with high capacity magazines handguns.
    2. People go out and stock up on high capacity magazines. (I just ordered 3 for my XDm 9mm)
    3. Retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers with increased sales pay more taxes. They also hire more workers to fill the demand who ALSO pay more taxes.
    4. ?
    5. PROFIT!!!!!!

    That is precisely what his predecessor thought.... You need to get the political machine behind you, attend the meetings that the republicans have each month, get ingrained, and most of all $$$$$ backing.

    Why can't politicians understand this: No matter how good something looks or makes you feel, no matter how many people will benefit from it, no matter the consequences if it's not passed- if it goes against my liberty, it shouldn't even be considered!

    The people and individuals they elect just don't comprehend liberty. It's disgusting. How foreign can the concept of liberty be in 'The Land of the Free'?

    This bill classifies as something that pisses me off. When government does something that pisses me off, I buy a gun. I was thinking of getting a shotgun but now I'm thinking something small (pistol) that supports more than 10 rounds. Hmmm...
