Obviously completely out of her mind. Can't fathom the thought process on that one.

And all this is different from a poll tax how?
I don't remember reading the other 9 of the BOR costing that much money. Does the first amendment have a physiological evaluation of one's tongue and writing hand?

It's for times like these when I wish the SCOTUS had a hunting license to review all bills passed for constitutionality, and if the bill fails SCOTUS review it is invalid AND CANNOT BE RE-PASSED.

A requirement for new insurance to be paid? Consider that proposition already accepted.

This is a huge problem with the system and the reason why progressives always have an advantage. They can bring up the same things over and over again year after year, and even if they get 1% of what they want it's a win. That 1% is never coming back.

I hope Picton is correct, but I better waste a phone call on Seth Moulton tomorrow. Can any Marines out there explain Seth Moulton to me.

I do too. I don't get the sense that she's very well-liked down there. A lot of Swamp creatures don't care for members who loudly introduce splashy bills just so they can get headlines.

Good luck with Seth. LOL!

No... going about it wrong...
Invent a caliber .499 cartridge. And it says caliber. Does not say .50 or equivalent. Hello 12.7 mm rounds!

That pro-gun chick from CO should file similar worded bills that target speech, voting, etc.. basically all the shit the left supposedly defends, just to listen to their arguments as to why those are a bad idea and this bill is good.

She introduced the exact same bill in the summer of 2019. It died in committee, and I bet this one does too.
Yeah but the Democratic caucus keeps getting dumber and more deranged with each election cycle thanks to our corrupt media covering for candidates that in previous years would never made it to the ballot for being straight up morons, anti-Semites, members of communist groups, wife beaters, drug addicts, and or sexual predators.

I'm not a Marine.
But I've always suspected that the guy had political aspirations and joined for that purpose only.
I'm not a Marine either, and I got out of the service almost 20 years ago now. But there are a lot more liberals in the military than a lot of people think. They join for college money or just because they think they should, same as conservatives. None of the libs I knew in the service ever let it be a big deal; if you could hump your ruck, shoot straight, and do well on the drop zone, nobody in my unit really cared about much else.

It's probably different now. The polarization was just beginning in the late '90s.

And the republicrates will be right behind them .......
And this is for the next 2 years.......

True.

But like I posted on another thread where this came up, weirdos file oddball extreme-o bills every session. Both sides of the aisle. No matter what party controls which branches, the Swamp doesn't like these sweeping bills and always shoots them down. I hope and expect this will go the same way.

is the $800.00 fee they mention the licensing fee?

Insurance, but paid to the Attorney General - oh - and it's due at each renewal - every year

“(d) Firearm Insurance.—
“(1) IN GENERAL.—The Attorney General shall issue to any person who has applied for a license pursuant to subsection (c) and has paid to the Attorney General the fee specified in paragraph (2) of this subsection a policy that insures the person against liability for losses and damages resulting from the use of any firearm by the person during the 1-year period that begins with the date the policy is issued.
“(2) FEE.—The fee specified in this paragraph is $800.”.


EDITED - to highlight the pertinent section and correct "one year or three years" to "every year"

Such a scheme, from a practical matter, would cost far more to establish and maintain its infrastructure than what it would return in actual benefits. Canada went that route with its long-gun registry. RCMP finally admitted that it did not help solve a single crime and its great expense could not continue to be justified. Canada's lawmakers scrapped the registry shortly thereafter.
