Georgia lawmakers have put forth several gun control bills this year, including a measure that would call on law enforcement to seize and destroy what the proposal deems “assault weapons” from gun owners.
A major purpose of HB 731 is “to designate certain weaponry and ammunition as contraband and to require seizure of such by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.”
The measure requires “assault weapons” and “high caliber weapons” not turned in by owners to be seized by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
Under the bill, “Any selective fire firearm capable of fully automatic, semiautomatic, or burst fire at the option of the user” would be banned.
“I’m not wedded to the specific principle of confiscating guns,” bill sponsor state Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver (D-Decatur) told WXIA-TV. “I am open to an honest discussion – if I’m allowed to have an honest discussion – if there’s a better way.”
A semiautomatic center-fire rifle that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has a folding or telescoping stock or a pistol grip would fall under the definition of “assault weapon” under the proposal.
It also would ban a semiautomatic rifle or pistol with a fixed magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds.

The bill states, “Any person who possesses any assault weapon or large capacity magazine on July 1, 2016, shall have until October 31, 2016, to accomplish any of the following actions without any prosecution under the law:
(1) Modify such assault weapon or large capacity magazine to render it permanently inoperable or such that it is no longer an assault weapon or large capacity magazine; or
(2) Surrender such assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for destruction pursuant to this part.”
Come seize it
isn' going to happen here in Arizona. The last person running for public office that talked about gun control received less than 20% of the vote after leading in the poles with 60%. Another person won by just saying no more gun laws and I support the 2nd amend.
And the traitors are all Democrats and are:
Representatives Oliver of the 82nd , Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver (D-Decatur)
Abrams of the 89th, - Rep. Stacey Abrams (D-Atlanta)
Hugley of the 136th, - Rep. Carolyn Hugley (D-Columbus)
Gardner of the 57th, - Rep. Pat Gardner (D-Atlanta)
Kendrick of the 93rd, - Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick (D-Lithonia)
To amend Article 4 of Chapter 11 of Title 16 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to dangerous instrumentalities and practices, so as to 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; to provide for enhanced penalties for the possession and use of machine guns; to provide for definitions; to provide for exemptions; to provide for related matters; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.
All laws and parts of laws in conflict with this Act are repealed
Repeal is the removal or reversal of a law.
So they openly piss on the Bill of Rights...and 2A
