Missouri Democrats Plan Outright Gun Confiscation as Attacks on 2nd Amendment Reach New Heights

In the last few months we have seen what can only be described as an all out assault on private firearm ownership in America.
From calls for universal background checks to plans for an assault rifle ban, elements of the federal government, in conjunction with the corporate media, have done everything in their power to push for limits to the 2nd Amendment.
Now, Democrats in Missouri have introduced a House bill that would literally lead to the confiscation of semi-auto guns throughout the state.
That’s right, despite repeated claims that no one is trying to take away guns from the America people, Democrats in Missouri are planning just that.
A section in the proposed law calls for direct confiscation:
“Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution.
Residents will be ordered to “remove the assault weapon or large capacity magazine from the state of Missouri… Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable; or… Surrender the assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction, subject to specific agency regulations.”
As Democrats and the corporate controlled media continue to claim that they aren’t trying to take away guns from law-abiding citizens, the fact remains that they are attempting to do just that.
