    Ditto that, I just emailed mine too, and forwarded the link to my friends and family.

    I don't think this stands a chance of passing. Missouri is a predominantly red state, and this bill was sponsored by 4 libtards in very libiot parts of St. Louis. No way will the rest of the state stand for this, but this is one issue where I'm NOT going to sit quietly by and leave the retards alone to do their thing.

    @CATO , thanks for the head's up, man. I don't know how you manage to track these things down the way you do, but the info is invaluable. [winkthumb]

    These states have gone insane! I told my husband last year that they were going to go for the guns and he said no way. Well Bummer won the election and nothing is stopping the Democratic agenda. I feel for the people in these states. Those weapons that they are trying to ban are personal property. This is insane! I fear that the only way to stop this would be an uprising and I just don't know if enough Americans have it in them to do so.

    * side note: I was worried because I hadn't seen Cato call anyone a nutbag in a week or so but seeing him call someone a d~khed let's me know he is okay. :)

    You know that bucket list of visiting all the states? Yeah, looks like one more people can scratch off the list.

    Anyway, If'n y'alls in MO, and facing a class C felony, just be warned, the police have already put the united states of amerika on notice of what they do with alleged felons a'la the marshmallow roast in the mountains of kommifornication. Seems trials are too expensive. Just have the police handle it from investigation to execution.

    I wonder if shootin' first is an option? Just wondering out loud.

    You know, possessing prohibited items is a class C felony (if legislation passes) and would make one a felon, there by possibly baring the from gun ownership of any kind in the future. Don't these dolt know that they will back many into a corner and a cornered animal is one of the most dangerous?

    Oh that's right, they don't fricken live in the real world. I surely wouldn't want to be the cannon fodder that goes to investigate whether or not someone has a banned item.

    This is not going to turn out well if it passes. Because we all know there is going to be guns on both sides of that door that gets knocked on.

    Wonder if they'll burn the house down first to see if they were right?

    Ok, how about if we burn their house down first?

    Hmm, Maybe instead of paying off debt with this over time I should invest in a steel reinforced concrete out building with air scrubbers and a couple of tunnels.

    Seems the groundhogs may be on to something.

    I'll have to investigate.

    WHAAaaaaaaaaaa? If this were my state and it passed, all it would mean is I would have 90 days to move to a free state. It's either that or Red Dawn. I don't see it passing, but always good for a heads-up.

    Yep, 90 days from a good citizen to a wanted felon. Isn't that nice?

    I thought so.

    You know, I'd like to see this pass in some 3rd world country that is armed to the teeth first and see what happen. Oh wait, we aren't a 3rd world country yet, right?

    I hope Larry Potterfield and Midway are throwing his considerable money to rage against this ! We all need to cry out as soon as these type of bills are proposed or introduced in the Legislature. They seek to wear us out with perpetual bills like this. White noise type of bombardment of the senses. They hope we become numb to the constant assault.

    If you repeat a lie over and over - eventually it becomes the truth. If they pass in multiple states, it will continue to gather momentum as The Sheeple do what they are told to do by their fear-mongering Masters in Government. They will continue working their twisted propaganda and non-existent logic to warp the ideals that made America great.

    Sacrificing personal liberties at the expense of " so called safety " is the Ultimate Act of Betrayal to our Founding Fathers ideals and vision for our nation and without a doubt the greatest tool in any aspiring Tyrant's Toolbox to seizing power and keeping it over those they will hold in sway once the populace is defenseless. - Gunny Highway
