Second Amendment Guarantee Act Would Protect Popular Rifles, Shotguns from Antigun Politicians

By NRA-ILA:  Legislation Introduced to Prevent States from Violating Second Amendment Constitutional Rights.  This week, Congressman Chris Collins (R-NY) introduced legislation that would shield popular rifles and shotguns, including the AR-15, from being banned under state laws. The bill, known as the Second Amendment Guarantee Act (SAGA), would also protect parts for these firearms, including detachable magazines and ammunition feeding devices.

The bill is a response to antigun laws in a small handful of states – including California, Connecticut, D.C., Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York – that criminalize the mere possession of highly popular semiautomatic long guns widely available throughout the rest of the country. Although rifles or shotguns of any sort are used less often in murders than knives, blunt objects such as clubs or hammers, or even hands, fists, and feet, gun control advocates have sought to portray the banned guns as somehow uniquely dangerous to public safety.

Anti-gunners’ focus on these so-called “assault weapons” was renewed after the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller. That decision made clear that handguns – by far the type of firearm most commonly used in crime – were subject to Second Amendment protection and could not be banned. This led gun control advocates to seek out other sorts of guns to demonize, and they’ve since been strenuously promoting the myth that semiautomatic rifles and shotguns with certain features such as detachable magazines, pistol grips or adjustable stocks are “weapons of war” with no legitimate civilian use.

  1. WTF? Some popular guns? No, protect all guns, you ass hole. The 2nd Amendment isn’t about duck hunting or popular guns, its about the people being able to defend themselves , scoundrels and politicians like you who want to take their guns away. That is exactly what this proposal would do.

  2. As much as I would like to see this bill pass, don’t hold your breath. Politicians do what is best to get re-elected and this ain’t it. Too controversial for the cowards in DC to touch. The only way we will get this country corrected is term limits in DC. Take the crime out of politics and the criminals will leave DC.
