Anti-Gun Senators Try to Slip Mag Ban into Cybersecurity Act

Cybersecurity Act Magazine BanAccording to the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, a group of Democratic U.S. Senators is seeking to slip a ban on full-capacity firearm magazines into the “Cybersecurity Act” (S. 3414) currently being considered in Congress: “The U.S. Senate will take up the ‘Cybersecurity Act’ starting Monday, July 30, but a group of Democrat Senators lead by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is looking to add an anti-gun amendment to the bill. Sens. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), joined Schumer in an effort to resurrect the failed 1994 magazine ban.”

The National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) reports that: “Democrat anti-gunners could force a ‘Magazine Ban’ vote on the floor of the U.S. Senate as early as today [Monday, July 30, 2012]. They’re attempting to ban magazines used commonly for self-defense and sport shooting by burying an amendment deep inside the ‘Cybersecurity Act’ (S. 3414).” The NAGR recommends that concerned gun owners contact their U.S. Senators and ask them to OPPOSE S. 3414, the so-called “Cybersecurity Act”, and S.A. 2575, the Schumer “Magazine Ban” amendment.
