I’m beyond tired of this sneaking legislation in a bill for one thing to undermine something completely different or the Constitution. How many bills have been passed for X that have amendments or sections for Y. Bills for Apples that apply to Oranges if you will. And it’s ALWAYS the DESTRUCTIVE DEGENERATE PROGRESSIVES (aka COMMUNISTS) that do this!
What we need is a bill that stops this back door legislation of piggybacking one bill to undermine another. As far as I’m concerned these people: Frank Lautenberg, Barbara Boxer, Jack Reed, Bob Menendez, Kirsten Gillibrand, Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein are all TRAITORS as they are violating their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. They are coming up with legislation that circumvents it!
More importantly, these ASSHOLES have time to work on bills like this but not to pass a budget! Do you see it now America do you understand what they are up to? Do you get it why they must be removed from power?
Democratic senators offer gun control amendment for cybersecurity bill
By Ramsey Cox | The Hill
Democratic senators have offered an amendment to the cybersecurity bill that would limit the purchase of high capacity gun magazines for some consumers.
Shortly after the Cybersecurity Act gained Senate approval to proceed to filing proposed amendments and a vote next week, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), a sponsor of the gun control amendment, came to the floor to defend the idea of implementing some â€œreasonableâ€ gun control measures.
The amendment was sponsored by Democratic Sens. Frank Lautenberg (N.J.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Bob Menendez (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Schumer and Dianne Feinstein (Calif.). S.A. 2575 would make it illegal to transfer or possess large capacity feeding devices such as gun magazines, belts, feed stripes and drums of more than 10 rounds of ammunition with the exception of .22 caliber rim fire ammunition.
The amendment is identical to a separate bill sponsored by Lautenberg. Feinstein was the sponsor of the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004.
The proposed amendment would only affect sales and transfers after the law took effect.
Schumer defended the Brady law and assault weapons ban on the floor Thursday evening, perhaps in preparation for the coming fight with Republicans and gun rights activists.
Schumer suggested that both the left and right find common ground.
â€œMaybe we could come together on guns if each side gave some,â€ Schumer said.
He suggested that Democrats make it clear that their goal is not to repeal the Second Amendment.
â€œThe basic complaint is that the Chuck Schumers of the world want to take away your guns,â€ Schumer said of the argument made by gun lobbies. â€œI think it would be smart for those of us who want rational gun control to make it know that thatâ€™s not true at all.â€
Schumer also pointed out that it would be reasonable for the right to recognize that background checks on those buying guns is necessary â€” as called for in the Brady law. He also said average Americans donâ€™t need an assault weapon to go hunting or protect themselves.
â€œWe can debate where to draw the line of reasonableness, but we might be able to come to an agreement in the middle,â€ Schumer said. â€œMaybe, maybe, maybe we can pass some laws that might, might, might stop some of the unnecessary casualties â€¦ maybe thereâ€™s a way we can some together and try to break through the log jam and make sure the country is a better place.â€
Next week the Senate is expected to debate and vote on proposed amendments to the cybersecurity bill.
