Georgia’s Democrat Party has finally come clean about their views on the 2nd Amendment. They don’t think it should exist.
On January 11, Democrats in the state of Georgia began an all-out assault on our Constitutional liberty by introducing a new bill that would ban “assault weapons” and also give state and local authorities the right to seize such firearms from their owners.

Georgia House Bill 731 would grant the state government wide latitude to infringe upon our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms and our God-given right to self-defense.
Here’s some of what the fascist Democrats propose:
“Prohibit the possession, sale, transport, distribution, or use of certain assault weapons, large capacity magazines, armor-piercing bullets, and incendiary .50 caliber bullets; to provide for crimes involving the possession, sale, transport, distribution, or use of certain assault weapons, large capacity magazines, armor-piercing bullets, and incendiary .50 caliber bullets; to provide for criminal penalties; to designate certain weaponry and ammunition as contraband and to require seizure of such by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.”
Breitbart News says that at least 15 Georgia Democrats have signed on in support of the bill.
Representative Mary Margaret Oliver suggests 10 other representatives have joined the six original bill sponsors. An announcement posted to Oliver’s webpage says:
[Oliver] and fifteen Democrat women House members introduced HB 731 on the first day of the 2016 Session. The bill bans assault weapons and high capacity magazines. Georgia needs debate about these weapons which are only used for rapidly killing people. Assault weapons are not necessary for deer hunting.
Are you ready to have the GBI knocking down your door and taking your guns? Will you let the Democrat Party strip us of our God-given rights? It’s time to take a stand, Georgia; it’s time to tell the liberal statists that they can’t have our rights. Stand with us. Stand for Liberty.
