Noted Gun Rights Activist Warns Obama May Skirt Congress and Outlaw Semiautos
November 27, 2012
Second Amendment activist John Snyder writes on his blog today that confidential sources have told him that the Obama administration may attempt to skirt Congress and outlaw semiautomatic firearms and multiple capacity ammunition feeding devices under Title 2 National Firearms Act items under the Gun Control Act of 1968.
“Under this scenario, semiautomatics and high capacity magazines could be acquired only with great difficulty and at great expense by America’s estimated 100 million law-abiding firearms owners,” Snyder explains.
Prior to Obama’s reelection earlier this month, it was rumored that notorious gun-grabber Dianne Feinstein instructed her legal staff to meet with the legal staff over at the BATF to discuss possible legislation outlawing semiautomatic firearms, according to sources cited by The Shooting Wire. The legal staffs reportedly also talked about banning pistol grips and “high-capacity” magazines.
Lawrence G. Keane, Senior Vice President, Assistant Secretary and General Counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, allegedly forwarded information confirming the meeting and its objectives, according to David Codrea.
