BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO:
Section 1. That section 109.52 be amended and sections 109.5731 and 2923.171 of the Revised Code be enacted to read as follows:

Section 2. That existing section 109.52 of the Revised Code is hereby repealed.
The story itself is more straight-forward than expected.
On the other hand…the responses on the MSNBC Facebook prove that those special kind of stupid people that believe the Feinstein B.S. still have access to keyboards.
Missouri Dems jump on the “Assault Weapon” Ban Bandwagon.
Introduced by SEN. MEYER, 12th Dist. CT
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
That the general statutes be amended to establish a class C felony offense, except for certain military and law enforcement personnel and certain gun clubs, for (1) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate, transport, possess or use any gun except one made to fire a single round, (2) any person to fire a gun containing more than a single round, (3) any person or organization to receive from another state, territory or country a gun made to fire multiple rounds, or (4) any person or organization to purchase, sell, donate or possess a magazine or clip capable of holding more than one round.
Statement of Purpose:
To reduce the use of guns for criminal purposes.
Idiocy in action.
First there’s the utter idiocy of the Homeland Security directive to DHS employees and Border Patrol agents:
“We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’” union leader Brandon Judd wrote on the website of 3,300-member union local. “If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become ‘aggressive’ and ‘throw things’ at him or her. We are then advised to ‘call law enforcement’ and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered).”
The stupidity is only compounded by the journalistic laziness of repeatedly using the misnomer “gunmen”. Come on FOX - you’re not MSNBC.
Legislation proposed in several states to require manufacturers of semiautomatic weapons to use the technology has met with fierce opposition. Opponents, including the gun industry and the National Rifle Association, argue that microstamping is ineffective and its cost prohibitive. They say the proposed system would unfairly focus on legal gun owners when most crimes are committed with illegally obtained guns.
The issue has become so heated that in New York, where the State Assembly is expected to debate a microstamping bill as early as Wednesday, one gun maker, the Remington Arms Company, has threatened to pull its business out of the state if the bill becomes law.
Utterly ridiculous. And if Bloomy and his MAIG minions, the Brady Campaign (for any kind of violence as long as it doesn’t involve a firearm), the VPC (again, violence is okay as long as a gun’s not involved ‘cause we all know that being bludgeoned to death with a hammer it’s not nearly as bad as being shot), and various and sundry other idiots have their way IT CAN AND WILL HAPPEN HERE.
