Dem Senator: We Will Have Assault Weapons Ban Bill Day One In Next Congress

I have received comments on Facebook, by email and comments in the comments section by people who think that there is no one out for Americans' guns. They live in a dream world. There is no other way to say it. The talk on television and radio over the past week, especially since Friday's Sandy Hook Elementary shooting has been nothing but anti-gun rhetoric and the internet has been filled with Tweets calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment and murder of the National Rifle Association president and its members. Whether it is Barack Obama or other liberals, there are those in Washington, D.C. who do want to ban firearms. One such is Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). She told NBC's Meet The Press on Sunday that she will once again reintroduce an assault weapons ban bill on the first day of the new Congress.

As an introduction to a question on the leadership of Barack Obama on banning assault weapons the host quoted The Washington Post on the record of Barack Obama:

"I'm not going to take away your guns," Obama promised in September 2008. However, he advocated closing the loophole that allows for gun purchases without background checks at gun shows and for reinstating the assault weapons ban.

Obama kept his promises to gun owners but no to gun control advocates...

The president signed bills allowing guns in national parks and on Amtrak. He has not pushed for the reinstatement of the assault weapons ban... Nor has he moved towards closing the gun-show loophole.

The question was then asked, "Has the President failed to lead on this?

Feinstein was clear that Obama "is going to have a bill to lead on because the first day bill I"m going to introduce in the Senate, and the same bill will be introduced in the House; a bill to ban assault weapons.

It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation, and the possession, not retroactively, but prospectively," she said. "And it will ban the same for big clips of more than ten bullets.

"So there will be a bill," the Senator continued. "We've been working on it now for a year. we've tried to take my bill from '94 to 2004 and perfect it. We believe we have. We exempt over 900 specific weapons that will not fall under the bill."

"But the purpose of this bill," she said, "is to get weapons of war off the streets of our cities."

She was then quickly questioned as to what made her think that the bill would pass.

"I'll tell you what happened in '93," she began, "when I told Joe Biden, who was Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that I was going to move this on the crime bill. He laughed at me. He said, 'You're new here. Wait till you learn." We got it through the Senate. We got it through the House. The White House came alive and the House of Representatives and the Clinton administration helped. The bill was passed and the President signed it. It can be done."

Now reports have already been made about Feinstein's potential assault weapons ban. David Codrea at the Examiner was one that wrote that his source said the bill would include the following: No pistol grips allowed, no high capacity magazines, no grandfathering, and no sale permissible if in possession.

Feinstein claiming that she wants to get "weapons of war off the streets of our cities" off the streets may sound noble and all, but the reality is that doing so seems to be at odds with the very document she took an oath to uphold and defend. To refresh our minds a bit, the Second Amendment states:

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

My fellow Americans. This is all about "weapons of war." It's not about hunting and it's not about target practice. The first four words indicate "A well regulated militia." That's not the hunting club. In fact, Noah Webster in his 1828 Dictionary defined militia with the following:

[L. from miles, a soldier; Gr. war, to fight, combat, contention. The primary sense of fighting is to strive, struggle, drive, or to strike, to beat, Eng. moil, L. molior; Heb. to labor or toil.] The body of soldiers in a state enrolled for discipline, but not engaged in actual service except in emergencies; as distinguished from regular troops, whose sole occupation is war or military service. The militia of a country are the able bodied men organized into companies, regiments and brigades,with officers of all grades, and required by law to attend military exercises on certain days only, but at other times left to pursue their usual occupations.

While there certainly is a distinction between militia and military, the issue is that they both can engage in military style combat. So the cry to ban AK-47's and AR-15's and various other rifles that are labeled "assault rifles" is simply, with regards to the Constitution a direct attack on the Second Amendment.

In a story I did recently on leaks concerning Feinstein's assault weapons ban, and alleged statements she made just eight years ago when she said, "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them . . . Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here." I received the following comment:

"Obama was for it then, not now, based on what he said today and since he was elected president. When did he change his position?"

This comment was to imply that Feinstein had changed her position. I ask you, does it sound like she's changed her position? Does anyone else think Barack Obama has changed his position and would not sign this bill should it come to his desk? After all, he has demonstrated that he wants stricter gun control for within hours of being re-elected as President, his administration cranked the talks on the United Nations Small Arms Treaty again.

  • george

    Senator how ban on killing the thousands of unborn babies every year?

    • ArmyCombatVet

      51 million babies murdered under Roe, who happens to be totally against infanticide, but Frankenstein loves killing helpless babies in or out of the womb. Hey Dianne you sick pervert, murder is murder and these poor helpless babies feel pain and have become a form of birth control.............utterly sick and demonic but I don't see any bills to ban abortion? The shooting was a tragedy, arming and training school teachers and a school security presence will stop this insanity. There are millions of highly trained veterans who would be more than happy to volunteer to provide a safe environment for schools free of charge! We need to ban losers and crooks like Frankenstein..............not guns!

    • ArmyCombatVet

      More than anything else our Constitution needs protection from an extremely evil government bent on destroying our freedom and liberty granted within!

  • Kingscairn

    I guess that's it then, the doors to hell have been opened. !

  • Blackbird

    Will Ms. Feinstein give up her guns? Will she lead by example? Will all pols give up their guns and fire their bodyguards who carry GUNS for their protection. HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • tim meenan

      finish the statement, hypocrit bastards !

  • z328

    she needs to retire, go home and make cookies.

    • Ed Scott

      Seriously, would you eat cookies made by this woman? Really?

  • Ron G

    I finally figured out how pelosi, boxer and feinstein keep getting re-elected. All those movies show Calif with a population of beautiful people. Those three just don't fit in!

  • Public_Citizen

    I'm afraid that Feinstein doesn't even know what an assault weapon is.

    Modern civilian firearms and modern military firearms use many of the same basic components.
    An ~~assault weapon~~ has the ability to fire "full auto" which requires components to permit one pull of the trigger to fire multiple rounds. Firearms equipped with this feature are only legally available to the military.
    Civilian firearms built on the same or similar frame look the same as a full auto military weapon to the casual observer. Uneducated people such as Feinstein are unable to distinguish between a military and a civilian firearm because they look the same to them.

    Instead of an assault weapons ban we need a drunkards ban in our legislative chambers.
    Require a breathalyser before every vote. If you pass your vote is registered. If you fail your vote is registered as "present - intoxicated". I'm afraid Feinstein would fail every vote.
    You only need to look at her to see the effects of decades of alcohol abuse that the botox can't completely conceal.

    • Ed Scott

      Shouldn't there be a way to check their brains (or lack of one) before they vote?

  • Sandidad

    Folks check out this 1902 gun law. Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R. 11654, of June 28, 1902

    • KarenWI

      Interesting, thanks for the tip to read!

  • Chusum

    We are a rotting culture. We have walked so far away from our moral beginnings that we can no longer see where we started?....It is not guns that are the problem; it is the decomposing moral fiber of our nation.....And the lying self serving arrogant leaders like Feinstein is a major contributor to the problem.

  • jsmithcsa

    Hey Feinstein: which part of "shall not be infringed" is confusing you?

    • NamelessN00b

      I know! It's "not!" We say, "shall not be infringed," and she hears (or wants to hear), "shall be infringed!"

    • Rob1911a1

      The liberals literally have no conception of our God given RIGHTS, which are ABOVE the Federal Government, just as States are ABOVE the Federal gov. See the Ninth and Tenth Articles of Amendment.

    • Ginger

      All of it, if it applies to the average law abiding citizen...but not so much for the traitors in D.C.

  • dwight

    need to stick a 30rd clip in her hello

    She looks more like Mrs Frankenstein!!! I'd hate to run into her in a dark alley...I'd want my guns!!! :)

      Put Clinton and Pelosi in the same room and you have a triple-ugly horror movie!!!

  • Nottakenyan

    US government is ran by B artists who are very greedy individuals.

    • Nottakenyan

      BS artists

  • Ted Smith

    School Mental Health Programs

    The media and our politicians are totally ignoring the need for adequate funding for mental health care. The media wrongly focuses on the guns only.

    If Connecticut had given that boy (shooter) the proper mental health attention, he would never have gone to the school with the intent of shooting children and the guns would have been irrelevant.

    The media and our politicians should be fighting for adequate funding for mental health treatment, particularly funding for school programs that would help identify children like him in need of help. That would prevent tragedies like this.

    • guest99

      agree, and doesn't Conn already ban guns ? still didn't work, huh, just shows that if someone is out to do harm to others that they will find a way....just like the knife wielding killer in Asia that killed 20 or so kids and adults earlier this year

    • KennyB

      The ban on guns in DC until 2007 caused it to be call the murder capitol of the world with an average murder rate of 482 per year. Now that the ban is lifted (by the courts) there was 108 in 2011. Look at Chicago now with their gun ban, 228 killed this year so far. A ban on guns only makes crime excel, and these people know it. They have bigger plans for us up their sleeves than they're saying. They ain't gettin mine.

    • Carl Stevenson

      Sorry ... Chicago had had 479 murders this year as of last week's data.

    • Grizzly Mom

      What we haven't focused on is the real cause- the culture of death! From Abortion to euthanasia. This man grew up thinking it's okay to rip a child limb from limb in the womb. And of course you can scramble their brains just as they are delivered in the mother's birth canal. So do you wonder with no respect for life or morality these are the fruits. Create a culture of life and take our Country back!

    • wildbill

      will someone make a believable statement as to the difference in abortion and being killed in the street. and while we are at it look at the kennedy's and clintons kill records. remember vince foster that was porking hillary.

    • sam

      Sure am glad we have Obamacare now, how bout it Ted and guest99? everyone can have their mental faculties explored, manipulated and documented in their dossier forever at least it'll be FREE, huh.

      What would have kept this tragedy from happening is if the school personnel were armed. People like this look for the weak links. In this case the weak link is the gun free zone filled with defenseless unsuspecting women and children.

  • GregoryP

    Congress is responsible for more deaths than guns which we have rights for. Stop the stealing in Congress.

  • 7loubro_4


  • Nottakenyan

    Thank you but I do not need a gestapo government raping me of my earned tax dollars and then controlling my entire life.
    The proble with this country is the idiots in Washingtn, DC!!!

  • Concerned citizen

    Not even a tragedy like this can get congress back to work! Did they work a total of 40 days this year? They make how much? They pay how much in taxes? now they want to change the ideals this contry was founded on? What a joke our government is!

  • Dan Carmichael

    Fiendstein is an idiot. Yes, I spelled it that way on purpose.

    • Wayne Graff

      Shouldn't that be Fincklestien? Yeah when her body guards give up their guns and she dumps hers then she can start talking. But even then she has no right to even think about taking anyone's guns.

  • Rick Johnson

    This witch has a Concealed Carry Permit, carries a pistol and has armed body guards. How do you spell hypocritical? How about Feinstein

    • tim meenan

      we will fight her in the streets or where ever necessay. she is going down! she is a pinko commie liberal and must be stopped !

    • fedupwidit

      Amen Rick, it is always the liberals that want to take away your gun rights, but exempt themselves from it..god I hate politicians!

    • tom

      Over 200 million people in this worlds history have been murdered after having there right to bear arms removed. I will not be part of that statistic. God bless america

    • Garrey McVicker

      what are we to do if zombie attack, isnt that what they just spent a couple hundred million on. we will need our guns to protect our self.

    • Endgame

      Actually 272 million in just the last 113 years have been victims of democide, and all because they gave up their right to bear arms. Did you know that the fathers of BOTH the Aurora shooting and now this Sandy Hook shooting were BOTH heads of a large financial firm, and BOTH are scheduled to testify at the hearings for the Libor scandal? What are the odds of that? And did you know that the newest Batman Movie shows a building as clear as day that has a big red sign on top thar says "Aurora", and then in another part of the movie they show a map that has only two things that you can visibly read; one says Gotham City, and other is two words that were written on the map with a pencil. The two words? "Sandy Hook" Seriously, you can't make this stuff up folks. Look up the video on Youtube under "Aurora and Sandy Hill in Batman movie" and see for your self. This are absolute FACTS that you can find proof on.

    • abovethelaw

      Who said any laws will apply to the elites in Wash.??? clean em all out and impose term and age limits!!! Already they are whining to be exempt from obummercare,gee didn't we go through this before?When we whipped the kings ass??!! Hold on for the unbiased explanation of the tragedy, maybe the shooter was a Christian terrorist...or a member in good standing of the tea party! Had to be led by conservatives! Think about it,all I can see when I look at a weapon of any make or model is a defense weapon ! It is only sick minds that categorize a weapon as an assault weapon unless used in a war!

    • Ginger

      This is when we need a network of those who will not voluntarily give up their arms...somehow so the gov't can't trace us. We need to stand together and be sure of our neighbors and those we can is going to get ugly and the socialist, marxists, commie, muslim terrorists will not give up easily and neither must we.I for one, will not go willingly to the boxcars.

  • retiredmillwright

    Diane Feinstein is a filthy rich politician. She has used
    her political position to enrich her husband and herself for years through
    government contracts .What should have been a great conflict of interest has
    become common practice for her to steer billion dollar government contracts to
    her husband’s company. They are so rich their private jet is valued at
    fifty-five million dollars. This is one of the socialist people who thinks that
    we working people should have our second amendment rights taken from us. I have
    news for her, she needs to load up body guards and all the hundreds of millions
    of dollars that she managed to unethically take from the tax payers of America
    and go to a socialist country and leave the real people of America alone. She
    is a parasite and is afraid the American people will revolt one day, and use
    their guns to gain back their freedoms that she has helped steal from them.

      Feinstein is a filthy whore.

      American. They forget quickly where they started from. Success has blown them out of space. Obama is centered to take this country down and his followers just tag along skipping merrily as tho the sunshine will come up tomorrow and everything is just peachy dory.

      Funny how Socialists cannot read the US Constitution how REAL Americans do!
      "2nd Amendment" is part of the Freeoms of every citizen of the USA!
      Restrict 2nd Amendment, you restrict US Law which PROHIBITS Congress from diluting or removing this important part of the USA Law!
      Anti Gun people are Anti American people.
      When the Senator was shot by a headcase, the police did not extend their "CSI" hold on the area as they have today!
      There seems to be a hidden move towards socialism in Washington,and it is against the Constitution of the USA!!
      Tragedy or not, after any crime, the first move is not to intrrfere with the Constitution.
      Maybe this is a heaven-sent opportunity for Obama and the Socialists in the Dem party to impose rule from Washington.
      Hitler did similar after he was voted into power in 1933.
      He too was a Socialist!

    • fort9erdon

      Just so you phucking libs know, a slingshot, a ball peen hammer, a dull butter knife, a rock, even a sharp pointy stick are all assault weapons. So are cars, broken beer bottles, ball point pens, BIC lighters, firecrackers, plastic bags, and broken window glass fall into that broad category. OK, twits answer me this, an AR-15 would be considered an "assault weapon". It fires a .223 caliber bullet and can accomodate large capacity magazines. A Ruger Mini 14, is a .223 caliber weapon and can accomodate a large capacity magazine, shoots EXACTLY like an AR 15, yet IS NOT considered an assault weapon. Why? BECAUSE YOUR THINKING IS ALL PHUCKED UP, THATS WHY. YOU ARE ALL PHUCKING IDIOTS!

      I am listening to the sickening re-runs of the teachers who were at the crime scene. They are being repeated over and over.

      There must be an agenda that is playing this situation to the limits for reasons of getting control over OUR self defense weapons!
      However, the Police behaved impeccably and you could see that had there been more gunmen they would swiftlyhave become. DEAD gunmen.

    • av

      You are correct. Barry has been studying this idea for quite some time. The current plan probably includes: eroding the 2nd amendment into irrelevancy to eliminate the citizen's right to protect themselves from their own government. Next- abolish the 22nd amendment. Third declare himself king.

Oh, and they all have illegal guns and murder people. The gun ban is for those law abiding men and women the govt wants to disarm. The taxpayers, the working back bone, Americans. Obama is an islamic muslim terrorist its his plan to disarm Americans, feinstein is just one follower theres plenty more.

    • Mike

      You obviously are a good parent. Congratulations to you. So many children today grow up on their own because their parents don't, won't take the time nurture and guide them in their formative years. Many of these so called parents can't do this because they were raised the same way by non existent parents.

      THANK YOU. This is something no one ever wants to address. Most of the time these shootings happen, they blame the gun but turn a complete blind eye to the medications. Columbine - Luvox.

Because only a doctor can prescribe them? Because the industry is worth billions and they can just pay off lawyers and victims? Pathetic.

      The United States was brought to their knees from mentally Phucked up people with BOX CUTTERS for Gods sake. Over 3,000 killed from BOX CUTTERS, The biggest mass murder in US history. I can still go the the Home Depot and buy a BOX CUTTER. No ID no proof of which country I'm from, No declaration of what I intend to use it for. If mass murders make the item used outlawed then why are there still BOX CUTTERS in the USA. BTW I have several BOX CUTTERS laying the house. And they are not registered.

      Good point... did you read where that nut case in China stabbed 22 school children with a knife??.... Maybe it was an "assult knife"..... Hey Feindbrain maybe you better draft a bill banning knives... they kill people... OH, and cars also because drunk drivers kill people and sharp pencils and baseball bats and paper clips and... and... and....

      The Ruger is not considered an assault weapon because it doesn't have a pistol grip and doesn't look like what the military uses. If an M16 and an M15 were present in congress and these idiots were ask which one was an assault weapon they would not know, so they just lump them both together. An assault weapon by definition has nothing to do with magazine capacity or having a pistol grip. An assault weapon is a weapon capable of full automatic fire. That type of weapon is illegal to own already. The only way to own such a weapon is to pass a background check and pay a huge Federal license fee.
      Write your congressmen before Feinstein brings her bill to congress and explain to them in plain English what is and what isn't an assault weapon. Make it very plain English, so the idiots might be able to understand what you are saying.

      They all need to go. The only hope left is for strict term limits. No more career politicians on either side. 2 and out never to serve again


      FIRST we must REPAIR our broken electoral system, or we will only keep spinning our wheels! ~ As far as I'm concerned our federal government is SO CORRUPTED that it is beyond repair, thus should be ABOLISHED completely by the states that formed it and a new government put in its place as per our Declaration of Independence!!!

      "That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security." (EXCERPTED)

    • catman

      HOT DAMN !!!! Someone actually read the Declaration of Independance and understands what that second paragraph says.
      My hearty congratulations to you !!! You can bet I am of the same persuasion. A State of Utah legislator suggested this several years ago, but of course nobody paid any attention to him. Wish they had of now.

    • av

      I couldn't agree more that our government is corrupted beyond repair. From the POTUS to local dog catcher the system is broken.
      The only problem with strictly following the constitutional remedies, at this time, is who is presently in power. We have already seen how the powers that be (under the Obama administration) completely ignore the constitution. Their very first act (Obamacare) was and still is unconstitutional regardless of what the supreme's say. In forming a new government I am less than confident that the very corruption that exists in government would not use the opportunity to further erode the constitutional guarantees granted under the bill of rights. I can already hear," You'll have to pass the new government to see what's in it."
      Personally, my faith in government is so eroded that I simply do not trust that we have any representitives, of good will, to represent anyone but themselves.


      Under a circumstance of a corrupted, rogue central government such as we are experiencing today with a Constitutionally illegal person posing as POTUS, our real leaders are the Governors of our individual STATES!

      It is THEY that have the power and DUTY to NULLIFY any and ALL unconstitutional mandates or laws enacted by the federal government!

      IF 2/3rds (34) states convened, they could actually ABOLISH the entire federal government and rebuild from the bottom up as per our Declaration of Independence and de jure U.S. Constitution, thus WEEDING OUT all the present Marxist/Communists who like to call themselves "Progressives" in order to fool the Fools! (not to mention abolising some bad amentments) ~ IT CAN BE DONE if only the states will DO IT!

    • av

      Although that does clarify exactly how it could be done I am still skeptical if any have the political will to do so. I believe that Republicans currently have a slight edge on gubernatorial possession. Based on my own former governor's party declaration, as republican, Arnold was a RINO at best and would have more than likely voted with the dems. I don't see many dems that would throw Obama under the bus as party power means more than anything to them. I think it would be extremely difficult (not impossible) to sway enough dems over and some may be negated by the likes of the RINO. So, getting 2/3rd would be tough. The illegitimacy of the current occupant of the White House should be a concern to everyone. So far he has offered the equivalent of a crayon drawing for his birth certificate and the first executive order he signed on January 21st 2009, was Executive order # 13489 which essentially hides the truth forever, unless he decides to release the documents. The questions that surround this guy are serious and I view his original election as a carefully orchestrated coup d'etat by powers that are beyond the Presidency. Unfortunately the vast majority of the electorate can be mesmerized by the bright shiny stuff that this administration tells them he will give them. Meanwhile they play with their xbox and ipods and are totally oblivious to what they have done to themselves. I share your desire to get rid of the current government however I would not bet on it happening on today's political landscape.

    • Buck

      2 and out and no more getting full pay till they die. They need to go back to work just like the rest of us. Most of them are lawyers or professors or whatever.

    • Mike S

      And no retirement pay for serving. Then we will see who really loves the USA and who is in it for the money.

    • Al Shaw

      That is one thing i have never understood, is how the American people have allowed these leeches to keep their full pay after leaving office no matter how long they are in office. Any idea what THAT does to the national debt? How much do or will YOU get when you retire?
      I had to spend over 20 years in the military to get a retirment and then they cut it in half and on top of that still make me pay for my medical through tri-care and I get NO dental. When we enlisted they promised us "free" medical and dental for the rest of our lives if we spent 20 or more years in. These leeches get it all for spending 2 years in office....

    • av

      It is confounding how this has been allowed to go on. I have come to the conclusion that it is a perfect example of Occam's razor. The simplest answer is that the American people have become so uneducated, disconnected and stupid that they can focus on nothing.
      This country has become split in two and I don't mean Republican and Democrat. I mean the elite power structure and the New American Proletariat. We have become a nation of slaves without the physical whip. The elite divide all factions to create hate and distrust between them. Then they pretend to play at satisfying their own constituents when actually it is an elaborate kubuki dance done by a perceived 2 party system to create the illusion of the freedom that our founding fathers had in mind. The power structure has simply pulled a page out of Sun Tzu and applied it to modern times.

      Morally and ethically speaking the roles have been reversed. Our representatives should be turned out after strict term limits(with no further compensation) and those that served and protected (i.e. military personnel) should not only receive what was promised but it should be increased to reflect the true value of their service.

      Thank you for your service - semper fi

    • Mike

      The states can collectively call for term limits on congress. I don't understand why they haven't done it. We need to push our state legislatures to push for term limits.

    • Brian Zipper

      Just read an artcicle about how (They) are warning about an EMP attack. However you just gotta ask who is they? Is it they who created political correctness to decieve the world and make them weak and divide and conquer them. Is it they who created a worldwide economic collapse. Is it they who slaughtered the Christian nation of Bosnia and handed it over to radical Islam. Is it they who created 911 and the bogus war on terror, when the war on terror is really against christians and freedom loving people. Is it they who assasinated every moderate leader in the middle east and in turn then turned the middle east over to radical Islam and or Baal Isis and Horus also creating a complete Muslim caliphat. Is it they who are allowing genocide against christians all over the world especially in Africa. Is it they who are comming up with bogus reasons to disarm christian nations like the USA and south Sudan. Is it they who constantly are assaulting your borders language and constitution. Is it They who are continually reaching their tentacles into every aspect of your life. Is it They that refers to christians as rebels while arming the muslims to the teeth. Is it They that ecourages radicals in Africa to slaughter wholesale villages of men women and children. If it is ...(THEY).. lol then rest asurd that, it will probably also be THEY who unleash the EMP or any other weapon against you. I will leave it up too you to figure out who they are, for me it is a know brainer lol. Rest assurd it is human nature to be in denial even when the truth is smacking you in the face. Yes (THEY) are going to make things much worse,more so than you can believe. Do you know who They is? A good bet in this case is (THEY) are not your friend but would love to brainwash you into believing that they are. lol. They will rock you cradle to grave into the goodnight!

      You mean COMRADE Feinstein......The AR 15 is strictly a semi-automatic weapon. There is not selective fire... Banning them and collecting them are two different things. She has just declared war on the citizens of this nation and she will not like it when the people declare war on this administration. Hot dang, a full blown revolution. Now the people can take this administration down and rebuild it from the ground up...

      Not many words but certainly gets the point across. Feinstein only agrees for the rich and those in govt who can dish out alot of pain be allowed to have guns. She threw her handgun in the SF bay, of course had to get it back. Feinstein is well armed. She wants it easy to control the people without regard for any resistance. She states, the laws they make will enable the govt to confiscate all firearms. Thats if the people comply. If they dont what do they have for resistance. Get ready, obama says never waste a tragity.
      The Sandy Hook shooter was on behavioral drugs, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Ritalin all have been documented with bazaar violent effects. The Co. shooter was on another planet when he did the shooting. In Australia the Tasmania shooter was on behavioral drugs. Thery disarmed the nation from this individual. The Australians complied, now they send warnings to the United States. Dont let this happen.
      Feinsteins a socialist/communist whore at best and obama is an islamic muslim terrorist whatcha expect.

      NO, the super millianaires like her, or Pelosi, or Kerry, or a host of others, pay only 15% on their taxable dividends. She pays the highest level of taxes only on her SENATE salary! Just as Warren Buffet's secretary payed more than him IN PAYROLL taxes, because his 'salary' is some next to nothing sum; his income from stock dividends, like all the rich, comes in at 15%. His BILLIONS (and her scores of millions) are NOT taxed.

      The public had better wake up. We do not need the government to protect us, they will just screw this up royally. The Communities should do this locally, to be dependent upon government will end badly. Personal responsiblity at the local level is where we as a Sovereign Constitutional Republic should be.

      Bet those standing guard over her have the same type of weapons that she's trying to ban. Oh, those are cops? But, considering that they're EVERY bit as dangerous as we are and subject to the same "crazy" then what's to stop one from using his/her assigned weapon to wreak vengeance on her? Oh, nothing and no one because SHE like WE will not have a weapon to defend herself with. We don't trust the government because it is made up of PEOPLE and people fail you. That's why the administrations of every school, if not every teacher, should be trained and armed to the teeth to repel attackers coming at their schools. The left has caused this problem, not the guns.

      Don't forget Nancy Pelosi...During the stimulus plan...Pelosi has millions diverted to include a new rail spur on the Napa Wine Train. This spur went right to;;you guessed it...Pelosi's Vineyard...Furthermore she had 28 illegal aliens working the fields...which had no healthcare and probably weren't making minimum wage. All these elites need to go..Term limits period. 2 an out. Real Californians get a bad rap. This communist takeover of the state was brought about by the migration of millions from somewhere else. They were mostly losers that couldn't make it in their own they came to the land of free love - hoping to get laid...when that didn't happen they still didn't go home..A lot of your native Californians now live in the far more conservative counties east of the central valley. Most of us would love to become a new State. and in Nor Cal it already has a name..."The State of Jefferson"
