You left out some on the list:
It was Governor Ronald Reagan of California who signed the Mulford Act in 1967,‘prohibiting the carrying of firearms on one's person or in a vehicle, in any public place or on any public street.

1989 George Bush signed a ban on import of assault weapons which led to the total ban in 1993.
.
And if you Repubs ever do a little research you'll find that Hitler expanded the Rights to own guns in Germany among it's citizens. He never confiscated any.

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP)— Advocates of an effort to help states collect taxes on Internet sales won a symbolic but important victory Friday as the Senate signaled solid bipartisan support for the proposal.

Senators voted 75-24 for a nonbinding measure that endorses giving states more power to collect existing sales taxes on purchases their residents make from out-of-state Internet companies.

Though the vote was merely a show of sentiment, the one-sided outcome showed that supporters of collecting the levies could prevail should the Senate consider binding legislation later this year.

A congressional battle over the issue has been simmering for years, pitting Internet companies against traditional retail stores.

Part of what is at stake is potential revenue for cash-starved state governments across the country. An estimated $20 billion in sales taxes go uncollected annually by out-of-state online merchants.

Supporters also argue that not collecting the levies is a competitive disadvantage for retail stores, which must collect local sales taxes.

One sponsor, Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., said Internet sales taxes should be collected "so those local businesses will have a fighting chance."

Sens. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., were other chief sponsors.

Opponents said the plan would be unworkably complicated, would pressure states without sales taxes to adopt them and would encourage companies to move overseas, where they said sales taxes could not be enforced.

"It tramples on states' rights," said Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.

Online businesses with less than $1 million in annual sales would be exempted from having to collect the levies.

In states with sales taxes, online buyers are currently supposed to pay a tax on their purchases but the requirement is seldom enforced.

Twenty-six Republicans voted to endorse collecting Internet sales taxes and 19 Republicans voted against it. Democrats backed the proposal, 49-5.

Friday's vote was on an amendment to the 2014 budget the Senate was debating.

The tax sounds innocuous enough. The tax is hiding under legislation called the Marketplace Fairness Act. The Act purportedly just harmonizes state laws so internet sales are also taxed. After all, it is not fair that Amazon does not charge all its customers sales taxes. It puts them at a competitive advantage over mom and pop shops. Sounds good until you realize what’s actually going on with this latest scheme to peddle “fairness.”

One day I will have a scorecard for conservatives. And those Republicans who vote for the Marketplace Fairness Act in any form will be blackballed from that scorecard. Until then, I hope groups like Club for Growth and Heritage Action will score against it. It is a damnable piece of legislation whose backers are a who’s who of major corporations.

The staggering irony of the Marketplace Fairness Act is that it is written by states craving more money and massive corporations like Wal-Mart who want to hurt small businesses that have become successfully competitive against big retailers online. And in selling the Marketplace Fairness Act, these big businesses and governments have hired lobbyists to claim the law actually benefits small businesses. But the backers are a whose who of major corporations who have a history of using their connections in government to hurt small businesses that have figured out how to successfully compete against big businesses.

Even more shameful, these big businesses and state governments have been pouring money into conservative outfits and right-of-center lobbying outfits to try to convince conservatives that tapping a massive new revenue stream for states to balance budgets is somehow a conservative milestone.

Some of those supporting the Marketplace Fairness Act are good people with good intentions who believe the law is noble in purpose and buy the spin. But many are bought and paid for by the major corporations who have for too long rigged the system to their advantage by shutting out entrepreneurial competitors through the tax code and other laws.

Republicans who vote for the Marketplace Fairness Act, including Mike Enzi, should be, metaphorically speaking because it’d otherwise be illegal, flogged.

The Republicans Who Want to Raise Your Taxes

In November of last year I documented how much of the Romney Campaign’s third party operations were run out of 66 Canal Center Plaza.

Suite 555 of Canal Center Plaza houses Black Rock Group, Crossroads Media, WWP Strategies, TargetPoint Consulting, and Americans for Job Security.

A number of these groups either directly helped the Romney campaign or worked with the outside groups who helped the Romney campaign. The New York Times produced an awesome graphic of the incestuous ties in Suite 555.

Oddly enough, yesterday I got an email from Americans for Job Security promoting the Marketplace Fairness Act. The email had a link to a post written by the President of Americans for Job Security, which had been posted at RedState in the diaries.

Suite 555 has gone from making millions off Mitt Romney to helping states try to make millions off you in massive new streams of tax revenue while driving up the burden on small businesses, putting them at a disadvantage to big businesses.

And you know what’s so funny about it?

Late today, in response to my morning post, something called the Marketplace Fairness Coalition tried to rebut me by accusing me of being in the pocket of Ebay.

That was the best they could do. While I’m not in anybody’s pocket, I do find it interesting that 66 Canal Center Plaza, Suite 555, has moved on from taking money out of your pocket to fund Mitt Romney and now wants to take money out of your pocket to fund the leviathan. And just like with Mitt Romney, they’ll tell you this is conservative too.
