Senator Feinstein and her statist friends want to make America safer by taking guns away from honest people who don’t commit gun crimes. Such is liberal logic. Feinstein, who knows as much about guns as she does fiscal responsibility, is going to introduce a bill that will “stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devices.” Her bill will also affect handguns and require registration of firearms with photos, fingerprints, makes and models, and serial numbers. I know you’ll all be lining up to comply!
Senator Feinstein shows her ignorance of the Second Amendment when she says in her bill:
- Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
- Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment;
- Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes; and
- Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons.
While showing her ignorance of the Second Amendment by believing the right to bear arms has to do with hunting, her bill proves exactly why the Second Amendment was included in the Constitution. We have the right to own firearms to protect our liberties from tyrannists who would seize them. Just as the chorus of leftists are currently doing. Any politicians who calls for such gun control legislation must realize they are standing at the precipice of the second American revolution. Americans will NEVER allow their guns to be taken by a federal government we do not trust. We view any attempts to create a national registry of who owns what as a huge step over the line directly onto our rights. Americans must have the means to overthrow a tyrannical government if we deem it has overstepped its Constitutional limits. Just as Thomas Jefferson foresaw! And we do. And we will.
Recent polls show support for gun ownership is at all time highs. Americans, even Democrats, realize they cannot rely on the police to protect themselves from the growing number of violent criminal attacks. They also realize that the freedoms and rights of Americans would soon be bulldozed by the statists in Washington. I’m referring to Republicans, too.
While AWD despises the air Dianne Feinstein breathes, I do not believe her bill will get more than a cursory glance and lip service by Harry Reid in the Senate. Obama has already yawned when he created a “blue ribbon committee” to study the issue. Blue ribbon committees are in government-speak a way to look interested but do nothing.
Gun control is a losing battle in American politics and the Dims have several Senators in pro-gun states up for re-election in 2014. West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin came out calling for gun control after the shooting in Connecticut but walked it back with an op-ed that supports the NRA after his office was besieged by calls and visits from his pro-gun constituents. A vote for gun control by any politician from a red state (and some blue states) will be the kiss of death at election time.
One last thing, liberal gun “experts”…..the container the bullets go in on semi-automatic rifles and handguns are called MAGAZINES and not CLIPS! You sound like idiots. I guess it comes easy. You might be better served talking about topics where you have knowledge. Like welfare and voter fraud.
Penn & Teller get it right on gun control. Language warning but worth the watch:
Since AWD mentioned lyrics from the song Revolution, here are the Fab Four. One of them might be alive today had he been carrying a weapon. His killer once again proves that gun laws don’t keep crazy people from acquiring guns and using them.
