Two weeks later, it was Missouri where, on Feb. 14, Democrats in the state’s House of Representatives introduced a similar bill, HB 545, which will make it a class C felony to manufacture, import, possess, purchase, sell, or transfer any assault weapon or large capacity magazine.
Both HF 241 and HB 545 define “assault weapon” to include semi-automatic rifles, semi-automatic pistols, and semi-automatic shotguns. Exempted from both bills are government officials and employees, and members of the armed forces and law enforcement. If passed, HF 241 and HB 545 will render Minnesota and Missouri into effective police states where private citizens are no match against the lethal instruments to which only the government — and lawless criminals — have access.
Add the State of Washington to the above.
On February 13, 2013, Democrats in Washington’s State Senate introduced a similar bill, SB 5737, that bans the manufacture, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of “assault weapons” and any assault weapon conversion kits.
Like Minnesota’s HF 241 and Missouri’s HB 545, Washington’s SB 5737 also defines “assault weapon” as including semi-automatic pistols, semi-automatic rifles, and semi-automatic shotguns.
As Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit rightly observes:
“THIS IS AN ORGANIZED NATIONAL EFFORT FOLKS…. This is not a coincidence. It is a concerted effort.”

Dr. Johnny Nesman of KFLD 870AM is saying that “SB 5737 is apparently off the table for this legislative session … according to officials, dead.”
Alas, Nesman needs reading glasses, because he has FOTM as “One blogger even went as far as to claim Washington state had apparently passed the measure.”
Mr. Nesman, nowhere in my post did I claim Washington had passed SB 5737. This is what I wrote: “On February 13, 2013, Democrats in Washington’s State Senate introduced a similar bill, SB 5737, that bans the manufacture, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of “assault weapons” and any assault weapon conversion kits.”
You must be an idiot to think that I think a bill that had been introduced 8 days ago, is already passed.
