NRA shill Loesch falsely accuses Missouri Dems of proposing "gun confiscation"

2nd Amendment fetishist and NRA shill Dana Loesch is back to what she does best: distorts the content of the proposed bill (MO HB545 by Rory Ellinger (D-MOHD86) to make Democrats look bad.

Her radio show blog in which she makes blatant lies about the proposed gun safety bill proposed by Ellinger:

Missouri House Democrats have introduced an anti-gun bill which would turn law-abiding firearm owners into criminals by banning semi-automatic firearm possession. 

So any Missourian who doesn’t surrender their semi-automatic weapon would be charged with a class C felony. It’s disarmament and a complete dissolve of the Second Amendment. Their focus on magazines, as I’ve said repeatedly, is silly, considering a) they’re universal and b) can be easily made in your garage. 

Fellow local conservative Jim Hoft's Gateway Pundit made the same distorted claims about MO HB545:
Missouri Democrats introduced an anti-gun bill which would turn law-abiding firearm owners into criminals. They will have 90 days to turn in their guns if the legislation is passed.
Jason Howerton of TheBlaze.com has a very misleading title on this issue:

Democrats in Missouri introduced startling anti-gun legislation that would require gun owners to hand over their legally purchased so-called “assault weapons”  to “the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction” within 90 days. 
Under the proposed bill, “Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution.”
So essentially the law would turn a law-abiding gun owner today, into a felon tomorrow. 

BTW, Loesch occasionally fills in for Glenn Beck on his TV program and once on his radio show for TheBlazeTV.

Here are the actual facts on MO HB545, not NRA-backed hysteria about the bill:
A St. Louis representative has filed a bill that would outlaw assault weapons in Missouri.
Rory Ellinger, a Democrat from the 86th district, filed the bill, which would make it a class C felony to manufacture, import, possess, purchase, sell or transfer any assault weapon or large capacity magazine.
Dear NRA shills: banning assault weapons does NOT equal the weakening of the 2nd Amendment or "gun confiscation." And even if this bill were to pass, the 2nd Amendment will NOT be jeopardized.

The GOP has a supermajority in both the House and the Senate in Missouri, so the bill by Ellinger will be kaput.
