The Democrat-controlled House on Friday night passed an “assault weapons” ban by a vote of 217 to 213 violating the Second Amendment rights of millions of Americans.

The legislation, known as HR 1808, was sponsored by Representative David Cicillene (D-RI).

The Congressman who has no idea what “shall not be infringed” means, took to social media to celebrate the Constitutional violation that he proposed.

The House just passed my bill, H.R. 1808, the #AssaultWeaponsBan. The Senate must do the same.”

The lawless Democrats intended to push the vote on their “assault weapons” ban on Wednesday, but when they realized they wouldn’t have the votes, they pulled the bill.

Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) warned Friday morning that Democrats were doing some back room dealing to buy enough votes. One only has to wonder what they were promised for their votes.

I am saddened to say that my Congressman, Representative Brian Fitzpatrick (RINO-PA) voted in favor of taking away my right to own a rifle that the clowns in the Democratic Party call “assault weapons.” I have an assault hammer in my toolbox. I bet Fitzpatrick drives an assault vehicle. Both of those things can kill an innocent person. It all depends on how they are being used. It’s no different with a firearm.

Fitzpatrick has a 30, or grade F for his Liberty Score. That means 70% of the time he votes against your liberty.

This bill will do nothing the Democrats said it will with respect to stopping mass shootings. You can’t go after the weapons and not the people who misuse them to harm innocent people. To put this in a religious context, Cain killed Abel with a rock. God blamed Cain, not the rock.

The bill is not expected to pass the US Senate, especially when it’s split down the middle at 50-50. But then again, who knows? We have RINOs in the Senate as well.

Cicilline argued that he knows better what the Second Amendment means than the Founding Fathers, specifically James Madison who wrote it and those who ratified it.

“These military style weapons were designed for the battlefield, with maximum efficiency for when a soldier is engaged in combat. The military features banned by this bill are added to make these guns more accurate, more controllable, more concealable, and more deadly,” Cicilline said from the floor of the House urging other traitors to the American people to vote for his bill.

Republicans who care about Americans being able to defend themselves argued on the floor of the House against the bill.

Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) said as plainly as possible why the Democrats are doing it.

“For years the Democrats told us, we’re not coming for your guns. Yes, they are. The Second Amendment is as clear as possible. That’s their beef. The Second Amendment says the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed but they don’t care,” Jordan said in a floor speech.

Jordan added, “They don’t care about that fundamental liberty law-abiding citizens in this country enjoy. And they’re coming for your firearms.

This will come back to haunt the Democrats. Second Amendment advocates vote and if Nancy Pelosi thinks this move is going to endear the party to the American electorate, she’s playing with fire.

  • I wish our political leaders would call it for what the democrats REALLY are after which is to TOTALLY disarm American citizens so that we are more easily controlled. After all isn’t that what every despot and communist leader in the world has done.

    • More easily be controlled, AND unable to defend ourselves from the 2 million invaders that have crossed da southern line. Majority are boyz of military age, and reports they are armed to the teeth with a lot more than Grampy’s barn .22. You know who the Satan worshiping Big Boyz are? Keep in mind the clowns in Dee cee do not work for you, they R members of the You Ess Aye CORPORATION!” The Republic is gone.

  • It’s not an assault weapon. The Military wouldn’t be caught dead using an AR-15. The liberal commie Democrats, don’t believe in the Constitution. The liberal commie Democrats won’t be happy until they can confiscate everyone’s guns. they want an America patented after Socialist Europe, to include Australia, New Zealand, Canada, etc. The liberal comme Democrats want an authoritarian Type of government patented after Communist China. Open up your mouth against the government go to jail. The corrupt politicians only want a constitution that applies to them. The only thing standing in the way of transforming America to Marxist/Communist Obama’s America are the guns.

    • For the last 40 years all I hear is the same COMPLAINING! So how is that working for you? When will we organize and do what the second amendment was truly designed for – to remove a tyrannical government.

      No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.” — 16 American Jurisprudence, 2nd edition, Sec. 177; late 2nd edition, Sec. 256;
      Unconstitutional laws are Not Laws at all! But don’t take our word for it. In Marbury v. Madison, the Supreme Court itself declared that “an act of the legislature, repugnant to the constitution, is void.”

      “Not-Law” is our shorthand for unconstitutional federal laws, regulations, Executive Orders — any enactment of FedGov that is not authorized by the Constitution — the source of all FedGov power.

      Unconstitutional laws are not laws at all. They are “Not-Laws.”

      The reasoning here is simple.

      “The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment, and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it.

      In theory, an unconstitutional law or unconstitutional regulation or Executive Order is not a law at all.

    • Demonrats aren’t opposed to banning all guns. They would find ways to exempt rich and powerful Democrats while disarming everybody else.

  • Rep Jordan is 100% right on all points. The 2nd Amendment says what it says, very simply and easy to understand. Except to an idiot, aka liberal, or an insurrectionist.

  • The Democrats in both the house and senate need to impeach both President and VP. They are taking this country apart and it needs to stop.

    • Demoturds will not impeach their own; a tyrannical government can only be removed by the people themselves, and by force. What needs to happen is for “We the People” to physically take down this illegitimate government and institute a true constitutional government – that is what the second amendment was written for. Self defense, hunting, sport shooting are only collateral used of the 2nd amendment.

      By the way, this would NOT be an insurrection – an insurrection is the act or an instance of open revolt against civil authority or a constituted government. Our current government is NOT a legally constituted government, it is a tyrannical, thereby unconstitutional government that is in multiple direct violations of the Constitution.
      [“possession of firearms by individuals serves as the ultimate check on the power of the government”. We assert a right of revolution, which entails armed revolt premised on resistance against a perceived tyrannical government.]

    • Damn Strait they are totally out of control treasonous insurrectionist’s communists serving Obama’s master! It must be stopped and by God in the name of Jesus Christ our Savior it will be! They are just like Obama serving Satan!

    • Every Treasonous democrat in congress as well as every state needs to be removed and barred from holding public office, any and all pensions and medical benefits taken away, then the investigations began. Then all the Weaponized three letter agencies must be investigated and finally shut down for good. This Country belongs to We The People! Wake up and defend your damn Country!

  • The Democrats in both the house and senate need to impeach both the President and the VP. They are taking this country apart and it needs to stop.

  • Since what those in the House who voted for this illegal bill, how can We The People bring them up on charges?? This is an illegal act per our Constitution, that all of them pledged to honor and protect. See this quote: The oath used today has not changed since 1966 and is prescribed in Title 5, Section 3331 of the United States Code. It reads: “I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” I believe by voting for this bill, they have lied while taking an oath to this country, and therefore must be punished per the law of the United States of America. Now, how do We The People make this happen? I don’t want to rely on politicians in the Senate, even though I believe they will do the right thing. Any lawyers out there with a solid answer?

  • And what are the ball-less republicans doing about it? The ACP filed law suits on Trump if he breathed. Why not the ball-less republicans? JoeBama is getting away with everything and NOTHING is being done. The ball-less republicans should file law suits that would paper the White House inside and out. America is in real trouble as a country.

    • They don’t want to cut off that endless supply of money coming to them. Like the saying goes “money talks”.

    • If I’m a gambling man, I’d wager that a fair number of the Republicans also have their pockets lined with Chinese money, so it’s better to keep their mouths shut and sealed.

  • The truth about assault weapons is that there is no such specific thing.
    So-called assault weapons are semi-automatic firearms—the guns most commonly used by millions of law-abiding Americans. Banning firearms because of their cosmetic features is misguided.
    “Assault weapon”, A political term…“ Prior to 1989, the term “assault weapon” did not exist in the lexicon of firearms. It is a political term, developed by anti-gun publicists to expand the category of “assault rifles.”
    A pencil used to assault someone is, by definition, an assault weapon.
    The mistake they all make is in what is a weapon. The shooter is the weapon. Those are merely tools of convenience.
    Not a gun control problem, it’s a Progressive politics control problem! They have eliminated GOD from schools and public venues. Christian values are their enemy.
    “Not about gun control or bans… guns have been around for decades, in racks in cars, in houses, unlocked and without the issues we see today. There is something wrong with our current culture, parenting, coping ability, mental fortitude… these are the things we need to address and change.” Anonymous. Guns are not the problem or the root cause, just a deflection by the Democrats/Progressives.
    ANY PERSON THAT THINKS THAT BANNING A TYPE OF GUN WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM IS DELUSIONAL AND LACKING ANY SOUND THOUGHT PROCESS.

    Latest FBI Stats.
    In 2020, all types of rifles COMBINED, were used to kill LESS THAN 500 PEOPLE!!!
    650 people were killed by their assailant’s HANDS and/or FEET in 2020
    KNIVES were used to kill over 1700 people in 2020!!

    • The main problem in America is what Dr. Michael Savage wrote and said on the radio often over the years; “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder!” The BS over diversity and inclusion with the now Trans proper pronouns garbage, with CRT and Drag Queen story time in schools is all satanic driven and should never have been allowed; so now these immoral wicked minded despots are running the Congress and many of our American institutions bringing it all down to the level of total debauchery and evil! It must be stopped and soon! Start arresting these criminals and prosecute them to the full extent of the law!

  • The Democrats and Rinos are now lawbreakers, not lawmakers as they are supposed to be. I have been putting this all over the net for people to “wake up”

  • WHY IN HELL ARE THE DEMORATS ALLOWED TO KEEP PASSING “ILLEGAL” ISSUES UPON US? AND…NOTHING BEING DONE TO STOP THIS MADNESS, BY THE CORRUPT USEESS GOP AND THE SUPREME COURT???? AND…WHY IARE THE MINDLESS, FOLLOWING THESE ILLEGAL ORDERS?????

  • Does anyone remember Hitler? Thats when Germany became a communist country!! One of the first things he did was take the guns and started brain washing all the people, which is what is going on in our country. We have to get rid of these people that are commiting TREASON against our country.

  • IT IS HIGH TIME FOR A MASSIVE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST CONGRESSIONAL CRETINS FOR INFRINGING AND VIOLATING THE 2ND AMENDMENT TO THE US CONSTITUTION!!!

  • It is such a powerful weapon that the military is going to a 266 caliber for their soldier and squad weapons. The .224 in the M4 and AR16(not 15) are obsolete. Not good enough for the military.. OH BTW, OUR weapons are NOT assault weapons as they are semi automatic, you know that technology that was invented in the late 1800’s. What a bunch of jerks. You KNOW they are going after the gun manufacturers as well, despite it being specifically forbidden under law.

  • Democraps always do things that are ILLEGAL. This is the Number one reason they strip punishment from America’s laws. They call it Criminal Justice Reform. All Americans can do is push their Senators to oppose this VIOLATION of the CONSTITUTION and Pray they do the right thing and block this THEFT of Americans’ rights. They also need to Vote Democraps out not only in the Midterms but in every election.

  • This is why America must DEMAND that anyone running for Office at any level or being appointed to any office MUST take and pass a TEST on the CONSTITUTION on both the CONSTITUTION in general as well as what their job is under the CONSTITUTION. To be allowed to run they must get a grade of 90 or better. For anyone to vote they need to get a 75 or better. This applies to all wanting to vote.

    • And I will go further, any politician that asks for a donation or you vote should sign a letter of commitment that they will follow the law/Constitution. And if they don’t, evaluate them and dispel them. After all we are making an investment in them by our vote and donation.

  • Could it be because they plan to steal the 2024 election tha same way they did in 2020 and the NWO Maxists know We the People are on to them and this time there COULD be an actual insurrection, and I don’t mean just in DC.

  • There are over 10,000 gun control laws on the books in this country right now. News flash– All of them are unconstitutional and none of them have ever saved a life. The most dangerous place on the planet is a “Gun Free Zone”.

  • Article VI The Supreme Law
    Clause 3 Loyalty
    The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

    The oath used today has not changed since 1966 and is prescribed in Title 5, Section 3331 of the United States Code. It reads: “I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.

  • An unconstitutional “law” is NOT an enforceable “law” and more importantly NOT A LAW, PERIOD!!

  • An unconstitutional “law” is NOT an enforceable “law” and more importantly NOT A LAW, PERIOD!!

    My comment was NOT posted.

    Let’s try again.

  • Soon all the people will ignore the constitution! They will be able to go after the government and hang them! They will be shocked that the people are ignoring laws they made! How could that be? But when they do it they have no problem! They are doing their best to start a civil war! But it will be them the people are after! Even their protection will be looking to skin them! Time to deport them and start over!

  • Its my understanding that the constitution and amendments to the constitution are absolute. If the second amendment can be infringed on can not all the others also? Democrats want the constitution to go away and pack the SCOTUS this is there hope when they ignore the supreme court decision and they vote too infringe on our second amendment rights of making our guns illegal.

  • I can tell that these ?representatives? have not consulted the AMERICAN people. Note rate of compliance in the New England and the Pacific states when they passed similar laws. About 5%.

    Most AMERICAN citizens will not comply with this, especially as the United States Constitution specifically states this right SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Congress can pass all the laws they want but compliance will be “iffy”.

  • The Constitution clearly states the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Unless you’re a fool or a commie leftist the Constitution gives Americans the right to keep and bear any and all arms be it semi or full auto, fifty inches or five, plastic or unobtanium, it doesn’t matter. It’s our right and I’m damn tired that I have to donate money to pro gun groups and constantly fight to keep a right that’s as clear as can be, enough of these Unconstitutional acts against our damn rights, we as Americans are also bound by the Constitution to protect our country and rights from all enemies foreign and domestic. I think those crooked trash that have been destroying our country and violating our rights and laws need a lesson in the United States Constitution, The Oath They Took To Uphold and Defend It and the Rule of Law.
