    As I read it, the bill does not have a grandfather clause. It provides only for the modification to remove evil features, render inoperable, or remove from the state. Penalties for possession are a misdemeanor. There is an exemption for compliance with the NFA, however that would only save actual machineguns; compliance with anything else would be impossible seeing as they aren't regulated under the NFA.

    Was some of the wording cribbed from Massachusetts? Anyone want to bet on which of the GA will co-sponsor her bill?

    The only part of MMO's bill that somewhat resembles the crap that MA AG Healy is pulling up there is this:

    Bu then I don't see this term being used or referenced anywhere else in her bill. AG Healy's reinterpretation of MA's assault weapons ban includes a "similarity test" and an "interchangeability test" and I don't see any comparable wording in MMO's bill.

    What sort of sentencing guidelines should there be for Mary Margaret Oliver when she is put on trial for treason for her attempts to usurp the U.S. Constitution?

    I think we should bring back public hanging for such acts.

    Last year's bill shared a common source with bills from other states. Some Google-foo with specific wordings can usually turn up similar bills in other states.

    Lemme do some homework and see about getting on my rep's radar about not supporting this one. I've been lead to believe that some of last year's supporters aren't as eager to lend their names to the bill after being snowed last time.

    Maybe some day the Democrats will learn that gun control is a losing issue. I know there are some that will never be able to learn anything. As the saying goes...

    You can lead a whore to culture but you can't make her think. Or was it something about horses and water?

    I would like to think so, but then I see counties like Gwinnett voting for Hillary...

    Does this have any chance of passing and becoming law?

    In the strictest most mathematical sense? Yes.

    In the reality we live in? I would guess it has a 99.9% chance of never passing out of house committee. It has even less of a chance if it came to a floor vote in the house.

    For what it is worth, I've printed a copy of this bill and taken to it with a highlighter to mark up for my rep. I've actually campaigned for my state rep while CCing something that would be considered an "assault weapon" under this bill while also CCing normal capacity magazines. I think that would have made me guilty of 3 misdemeanors if this bill had been law.

    I wonder if the Honorable Oliver, in her heart of hearts, truly believes her bill will stop incidents like San Bernardino or the Ohio State University or the Fort Hood or Boston or any other of dozens of mass injuries and death?

    To me, it's like believing you have a million dollars in the bank while the bank says you have nothing and then writing a check for a million. :rotfl:

    It's more like not caring if you have a bank account or not, but forcing people to take your million-dollar check anyway, because it'll be good for them.
