    Forfeit Your Guns Bill Introduced In House of Representatives

    Forfeit Your Guns Bill Introduced In House of Representatives
    [B]
    January 17, 2013 by Tim Brown

    Representative Rosa L. DeLauro (D-CT) introduced HR 226 in the House of Representatives. What does the bill seek to do? I looks to amend the 1986 Internal Revenue code and allow a credit if taxpayers “surrender” their guns to the government. The Act is said to be cited as the “Support Assault Firearms Elimination and Reduction for our Streets Act.”

    According to the text of the bill, the allowance of the credit is:


    (1) In general.–In the case of an individual who surrenders a specified assault weapon to the United States or a State or local government (or political subdivision thereof) as part of a Federal, State, or local public safety program to reduce the number of privately owned weapons, on the election of the taxpayer there shall be allowed as a credit against the tax imposed by this chapter an amount equal to $2,000.
    (2) Year credit allowed.–The amount of the credit under paragraph (1) shall be allowed \1/2\ for the taxable year during which the assault weapon was so surrendered and \1/2\ in the next taxable year.

    Notice the purpose is not to give a credit of $2000.00, which if that is the case, one could really make a good bit of money as you can get a Bushmaster for well under $1000, but rather it is to “reduce the number of privately owned weapons.”

    The bill states that the weapons must lawfully be possesssed, that it is surrendered in writing, and there can only be one weapon surrendered per tax year. So what weapons does Rep. DeLauro consider to be “assault” weapons? The list is very similar to Senator Diane Feinstein’s list. According to the bill “the term ‘specified assault weapon’ means any of the following:

    (A) The following rifles or copies or duplicates
    thereof:
    “(i) AK, AKM, AKS, AK-47, AK-74, ARM, MAK90, Misr, NHM 90, NHM 91, SA 85, SA 93, VEPR,
    “(ii) AR-10,

    “(xvi) SLR 95 or 96,
    “(xvii) Steyr AUG,
    “(xviii) Sturm, Ruger Mini-14,
    “(xix) Tavor,
    “(xx) Thompson 1927, Thompson M1, or Thompson 1927 Commando, or
    “(xxi) Uzi, Galil and Uzi Sporter, Galil Sporter, or Galil Sniper Rifle (Galatz).

    “(ii) MAC-10, MAC-11, or MPA3,
    “(iii) Olympic Arms OA,
    “(iv) TEC-9, TEC-DC9, TEC-22 Scorpion, or AB-10, or
    “(v) Uzi.
    “(C) The following shotguns or copies or duplicates thereof:
    “(i) Armscor 30 BG,
    “(ii) SPAS 12 or LAW 12,
    “(iii) Striker 12, or
    “(iv) Streetsweeper.
    “(D) A semiautomatic rifle that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine, and that has–
    “(i) a folding or telescoping stock,
    “(ii) a threaded barrel,
    “(iii) a pistol grip,
    “(iv) a forward grip, or
    “(v) a barrel shroud.
    “(E)(i) Except as provided in clause (ii), a semiautomatic rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.
    “(ii) Clause (i) shall not apply to an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.
    “(F) A semiautomatic pistol that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine, and has–
    “(i) a second pistol grip,
    “(ii) a threaded barrel,
    “(iii) a barrel shroud, or
    “(iv) the capacity to accept a detachable magazine at a location outside of the pistol
    grip.
    “(G) A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.
    “(H) A semiautomatic shotgun that has–
    “(i) a folding or telescoping stock,
    “(ii) a pistol grip,
    “(iii) the ability to accept a detachable magazine, or
    “(iv) a fixed magazine capacity of more than 5 rounds.
    “(I) A shotgun with a revolving cylinder.

    (I) or (L).
    “(K) A conversion kit.
    “(L) A semiautomatic rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the Attorney General. In making the determination, there shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any Federal law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and a firearm shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.
    “(2) Related definitions.–
    “(A) Barrel shroud.–The term `barrel shroud’ means a shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel of a firearm so that the shroud protects the user of the firearm from heat generated by the barrel, but does not include a slide that encloses the barrel, and does not include an extension of the stock along the bottom of the barrel which does not encircle or substantially encircle the barrel.
    “(B) Conversion kit.–The term `conversion kit’ means any part or combination of parts designed and intended for use in converting a firearm into a semiautomatic assault weapon, and any combination of parts from which a semiautomatic assault weapon can be assembled if the parts are in the possession or under the control of a person.
    “(C) Detachable magazine.–The term `detachable magazine’ means an ammunition feeding device that can readily be inserted into a firearm.
    “(D) Fixed magazine.–The term `fixed magazine’ means an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm.
    “(E) Folding or telescoping stock.–The term `folding or telescoping stock’ means a stock that folds, telescopes, or otherwise operates to reduce the length, size, or any other dimension, or otherwise enhances the concealability, of a firearm.
    “(F) Forward grip.–The term `forward grip’ means a grip located forward of the trigger that functions as a pistol grip.
    “(G) Pistol grip.–The term `pistol grip’ means a grip, a thumbhole stock, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip.
    “(H) Threaded barrel.–The term `threaded barrel’ means a feature or characteristic that is designed in such a manner to allow for the attachment of a firearm as defined in section 5845(a) of the National Firearms Act (26 U.S.C. 5845(a)).

    The bill was referred to the Committee on Ways and Means on January 14, 2013, much like the bill that seeks to eliminate the 22nd Amendment that was put forth earlier by Congressman Jose Serrano (D-NY).

    Americans must resist this kind of enticement and stand upon what the Founders provided us in the Second Amendment. If we do not make our stand on that right, we will eventually lose all other rights.

    Gun Confiscation Bill Introduced in Congress


    IRS credit to citizens who allow government to confiscate their firearms

    On January 13, 2013, H.R. 226 was introduced in the House of Representatives by Connecticut Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro. The bill will amend the 1986 IRS code and allow a credit if taxpayers “surrender” their guns to the government.

    Cited as the “Support Assault Firearms Elimination and Reduction for our Streets Act,” the proposed legislation represents another effort to convince citizens that they must voluntarily turn in their guns as a civic duty and to do their part to reduce “gun violence” and protect children, as Obama said yesterday.

    The bill is yet more evidence that federal and state governments are now pulling out all stops short of door-to-door confiscation in their coordinated effort to disarm the American people.

    Strikingly honest language included in the legislation specifies that the bill is part of the government’s “program to reduce the number of privately owned weapons,” in short, a program to disarm the American people.

    The bill contains an exhaustive list of so-called “assault weapons” that will garner a $2,000 tax credit, including the much demonized Bushmaster AR-15 allegedly used in the Newtown Sandy Hook massacre.
    The bill was referred to the Committee on Ways and Means on January 14, 2013.

    The inclusion of the IRS in the government’s attempt to grab guns is especially foreboding considering its effort to act as a Obamacare compliance enforcer. In July, we reported on a revelation made by Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that the tax agency planned to hire up to 16,500 new agents.

    American taxpayers must reject such cynical enticements and stand together and support the Second Amendment against all attacks by Obama and Congress.

    The latest foray against the Second Amendment and the founding principles of the republic commenced soon after the Sandy Hook incident on December 15 when California Democrat senator Dianne Feinstein exploited the tragedy to call for an attack on America’s “gun culture.”

    “I hope and trust that in the next session of Congress there will be sustained and thoughtful debate about America’s gun culture and our responsibility to prevent more loss of life,” Feinstein said. “I will do another assault weapons ban.”

    New York governor Andrew Cuomo jumped on the anti-Second Amendment bandwagon a few days later, on December 21, and proposed gun confiscation in the state. “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option,” Cuomo said. He was egged on by notorious gun-grabber advocate and New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg who also demanded Obama use unconstitutional executive actions against the Second Amendment.

    On December 30, Feinstein said America needs to “bite the bullet” and restrict the gun rights of Americans following comments by president Obama that he would support draconian legislation aimed at the Second Amendment.

    Over the next two weeks, the establishment media launched an intense anti-Second Amendment campaign and produced corporate polls in favor of “common sense” gun bans. Alex Jones appeared on the Piers Morgan Show and a flurry of pro and con pundits and commentators debated the finer points of stripping Americans of their right to own firearms.

    On December 16, Obama and Joe Biden went on national television accompanied by a gaggle of children and pushed the federal government’s anti-Second Amendment agenda. Obama brazenly signed a number of unconstitutional executive actions during the performance instructing the government to roll back the Second Amendment.
