In my humble opinion, the failure of Representative Alice Hausman (DFL)MN, and other elected officials to honor their oaths of office, to defend the Constitutions, both state and federal, is grounds for recall from office.
Representative Hausman has helped author a bill which is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment. This bill also calls for the violation of due process and establishes police powers far beyond the scope of law. The last thing any of our communities need is the aggrandizement of power in local law enforcement now that they are under Homeland Security control and exist as para-military organizations, and no longer exist to protect and serve their communities.
Ms Hausman, like so many others in the legislature, is apparently oblivious to standing laws, SCOTUS rulings and the Constitution. Apparently believing that due to her office, these issues should not concern her, Hausman has authored one of the most egregious assaults on the 2nd Amendment. Neither does Ms Hausman seem to understand that it is illegal to try to pass ex post facto laws and that just because she does not adhere to any sense of law, does not mean that the rest of us lose our rights.
What it should mean is that she automatically is unseated and removed from office for failing to act in defense of her district and for willingly and knowingly violating her oath of office. At the very least, Hausman and others are guilty of malfeasance of office:
Authored by anti-gun St. Paul State Representative Alice Hausman, H.F. 241 would:
*** Ban the sale, transfer, possession and manufacturing of ALL semiautomatic firearms with a detachable magazine and at least one “characteristic” — which means just about anything that makes a gun “look scary.”
(This includes rifles AND pistols!)
*** Impose sweeping bans on pistols, rifles and shotguns that have “the capacity to accept” more than 7 rounds of ammunition;
*** Force current owners of ALL “grandfathered” weapons to undergo intrusive, redundant, ANNUAL background checks at their own expense;
*** Force owners of ALL “grandfathered” weapons to obtain permission to keep their guns by registering them annually with law enforcement;
*** Force the confiscation of thousands of firearms to law enforcement. Failure to comply could result in a $25,000 fine, five years in jail or both;
*** Give local law enforcement a blank check to make up their own gun storage rules as they please, and;
*** Give local law enforcement agencies vast new powers to bust down your door to make sure you are in compliance with all of their new, made up, “rules.”
