Meet Jeffery Donohue. He’s a Kentucky state rep:
Rep. Donohue, on 12/2/19, prefiled an “assault weapon” ban bill:
Amend KRS 527.010 to define "assault weapons" and "large-capacity ammunition-feeding devices"; create a new section of KRS Chapter 527 to criminalize possession and transfer of large-capacity ammunition-feeding devices; create a new section of KRS Chapter 527 to criminalize the possession of unregistered assault weapons and to require the owners of registered assault weapons to store the weapons in a manner which renders them inoperable to unauthorized users; create a new section of KRS Chapter 237 to establish the assault weapons registration program and a weapons buyback program under the Department of Kentucky State Police and to authorize a fee and trust account and make an appropriation; amend KRS 16.220 and 237.104 to exempt weapons from the buyback program from prohibitions on the destruction of certain weapons.
Funny thing is that this wasn’t on his agenda prior to the 2019 elections.
As many know, a Democrat was elected, Governor-elect Andy Beshear. Rep. Donohue is working with the incoming administration.
I doubt the AWB Bill will go anywhere (famous last words), but the point is that these Democrats just love to do whatever they can to attack civilian gun ownership. It’s a hobby for them I guess.
