Arizona Democrats Push Assault Weapons Ban in State Legislature

Even the most pro-gun states are subject to Democrats’ gun grab impulses.

Arizona Democrats are spearheading a new attempt to ban so-called assault rifles in what’s been known as one of the most-pro gun rights states in the country.

The legislation, sponsored by Senator Rebecca Rios and 11 other Arizona Senate Democrats, would introduce a ban on any “person, corporation, or other entities from manufacturing, importing, possessing, purchasing, selling, or transferring any assault weapon or large capacity magazine.”

High capacity magazines are arbitrarily defined as any magazine with a capacity of more than 10 rounds. 30 rounds is standard capacity for the most commonly owned semi-automatic rifles, such as AR-15 and AK-47 style firearms.

The bill is almost guaranteed to fail in Arizona’s (barely) Republican-controlled legislature, but the introduction of Virginia and California-style gun control measures in the formerly bright red state could be an indication of progressives’ confidence. Arizona is turning purple as new waves of out-of-staters and immigrants arrive, and it’s not entirely impossible that Democrats take at least one chamber of the state legislature in the 2020 elections.

The legislation even includes the shocking proposition of mandatory gun confiscation. “Assault weapons” owners in Arizona would have 90 days to surrender their guns to a law enforcement agency or render them inoperable after the law’s implementation. Such a proposal may have previously been considered to be political suicide in Arizona, a state that arguably has the most permissive and libertarian gun laws in the country.

Arizona is currently the largest state that permits the permitless concealed carry of a weapon.

Arizona’s Republican Governor Doug Ducey has declined to aggressively defend gun rights, instead pushing alarming “red flag” legislation that would allow courts and law enforcement to confiscate legally owned firearms without any criminal conviction.

Peaceful gun owners in Arizona don’t need to fear a Democrat-led gun roundup just yet. But upcoming state legislative elections could turn such a nightmare into an imminent reality.

He’s not messing around.

A Florida sheriff is pledging to deputize law-abiding gun owners within his county if left-wing rioters “overwhelm” law enforcement.

Darryl Daniels, Clay County Sheriff, made the pledge in a video released on Tuesday morning. He also slammed misinformation and hysteria advanced by the mainstream media, inciting against law enforcement and covering up the criminal activities of lawless rioters.

If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” warned Sheriff Daniels.

The sheriff issued a direct warning to ANTIFA criminals and left-wing rioters hoping to replicate a model of destruction, violence and criminal activity in his jurisdiction, a county just south of Jacksonville.

If you threaten to come to Clay County… And think for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you- you’re sadly mistaken. I know what happens when lawlessness prevails… If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority of the sheriff, and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this country… to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility.”

Daniels has served 29 years in law enforcement, previously serving in the U.S. Navy.
