Once again, Communist and Socialist minded representatives in Congress are making unconstitutional and irrelevant arguments against the Second Amendment and to push for more gun confiscation.
That's right, they really want gun confiscation, not gun control because in their minds, there will never be enough gun control because no amount of laws written will ever stop the evil heart of men who are hell-bent on committing crimes with guns or any other arms they can get their hands on.
Take a listen to Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) as she pushes for a ban on "bump stocks."
"You have to say that there is no reason to make a semi-automatic "assault weapon" into a fully automatic battlefield weapon," Feinstein told reporters.
Let's stop right there before continuing.
First, I don't have to say anything, nor do I agree with her assessment about any of this.
Consider the bump stock. The bump stock is an ingenious little quick swap out of a regular stock and pistol grip.
It acts as one unit and when properly used, it will mimic the response of a fully automatic weapon, but the gun remains a semi-automatic rifle.
In fact, you can lock the bump stock in place.
Additionally, the semi-automatic with a bump stock is a bit easier to control than a fully automatic weapon, as well.
Putting one of these on your semi-automatic rifle does not make it an "assault weapon" nor a "fully automatic battlefield weapon," as Feinstein declares.
It simply makes it a more efficient semi-automatic rifle.
There are reasons for this though.
Why? Because those who represent us and their "law enforcers" are not restricted by such man-made laws.
So, it doesn't matter if the guy had a fully automatic weapon, a grenade launcher or a .22 pistol and was doing the shooting.
The Second Amendment is what needs to rule the day, not a tired old lady who has Communist leanings in Washington and responds emotionally to a tragedy with unlawful legislation.
"No target practice justifies what happened yesterday and we know that these suggestions take root," Feinstein said. "We know that we haven't been able to stop this."
OK, where in the Second Amendment does it say anything about target practice, Mrs. Feinstein?
The Second Amendment is no more about plinking, target practice and sports shooting than the First Amendment is about the environment!
The Second Amendment is about keeping a free state from bureaucrats like Mrs. Feinstein and their standing armies who want to impose their tyranny against our God-given rights.
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.
That militia is the citizens of the states and they are to be funded and trained by Congress. Does Feinstein push for any of that? Nope.
She and her Communist comrades oppose the militia. They demonize the militia.
Why? Because the Second Amendment presumes and the Constitution lists the militia, not the FBI, CIA, Border Patrol or any other alphabet organization in the DC government, as the ones who are to enforce the laws of the union.
The Congress shall have Power To ...provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions.... -ARTICLE I, SECTION 8, CLAUSE 15
Do you see? Do you see how you are being manipulated America into giving up your rights for an unattainable security and peace?
Heck, this woman sought a full on assault weapons ban (wasn't really an assault weapons ban at all, but a semi-automatic weapons ban) and got it.
Did that help?
No. Listen to Feinstein's on incriminating words. "We know that we haven't been able to stop this."
We will never stop this. This is simply the world we live in and unless you have a way of changing evil, wicked hearts Mrs. Feinstein, you'll never stop it no matter how much ink and paper you use in an attempt to do so.
But I know how to change men's hearts: The Gospel of Jesus Christ. It won't come through the Beast of DC and it won't come through "draining the swamp," nor will it come through the demonic religion of Islam.
Only when men are called to repent of sin and trust in the One who gave His life for such sinners will we see real change in America. This means it is the work of the people of God, the Church, and not the work of government.
"I'm old enough to have watched the Texas bell tower in 1966," Feinstein said. " This has never happened in America."
She added that she has watched it take place over and over after that time.
Well, I'll give her the fact that she is old and she still hasn't got a lick of wisdom about her and this little talk demonstrates that.
In the minds of people like Dianne Feinstein, this does not stop with banning bump stocks. It doesn't stop with banning semi-automatic weapons. It stops, in their minds, with full gun confiscation.
You see? People like this cannot be reasoned with and once you start giving in to them and their demands based on emotion, sort of like the guitarist from the country band on stage that night, then you have no recourse. You are giving up your liberty for what they are already telling you is a lie and illusion of safety.
We the People have given no authority to DC to impose any type of ban or write legislation that restricts or infringes on our ability to keep and bear arms of any kind.
In fact, we have specifically told them that is none of their business to deal with. Yet, they arrogantly ignore us.
Let me ask Mrs. Feinstein. Let's say you got your way in 1995 when you made that treasonous statement you made above, and yes, it is treasonous because it is a violation of the Constitution, a siding with our enemies who want the same thing and an attack on our rights as citizens.
Would you call on police to also be disarmed?
How about the National Guard or Reserves or the military?
How about your bodyguards?
Would you give up your little gun you carry?
Would you get rid of guns on Capitol Hill carried by police and secret service?
No? Why not? Would you not have achieved all you wanted to achieve and magically produced unicorns and rainbows and no more criminals?
Everyone knows better, but "doing something" is better than doing nothing to them.
I say do something. Start repealing every single gun law at the federal, state and local level. We already have laws in place that deal with criminals who use their guns to hurt others or commit other crimes like robberies.
The Second Amendment is what must be constantly brought to the forefront and we must consistently be telling their traitors that they have no business even discussing the matter, let alone writing pretended legislation that disarms the American people.
They swore to uphold the Constitution.
I didn't force one of them to make that oath.
They either uphold it or they should be removed from office and dealt with to the fullest extent of the law.
As a final note, you heard absolutely nothing from Senator Feinstein when the unconstitutional Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) approved bump stocks (as if they have any constitutional authority to do so) under Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah.
Awr Hawkins at Breitbart reminds us:
While bump stocks are taking criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike, it is interesting to note that the devices were approved for sale in 2010 by Barack Obama’s ATF.
The ATF approved the devices because they do not convert a semiautomatic rifle into an automatic. Rather, they are an accessory that allows semiautomatic rifle owners to mimic automatic fire for short bursts.
According to the Washington Post, Rick Vasquez, the ATF official who signed off on non-regulation for bump stocks, described them as “a goofy, little doodad.” This squares with the Breitbart News report that bump stocks “are for novelty, not accuracy.” They are devices that allow bursts of rapid-fire but are unpredictable because the gun’s buffer tube can bounce around or bobble inside the device, making jams and inconsistent fire patterns likely.
Vasquez, a former Marine, put it this way: “[Bump stocks are] for those guys who want to look like super ninja when they’re out on the range — they’re the people my peer group makes fun of. If you want a machine gun, join the Marines.”
Sadly, even self-professed Republicans are selling the American people out. The Hill reports:
Rep. Bill Flores (Texas), a former Republican Study Committee chairman, was the first Republican in Congress to publicly endorse a ban on bump stocks.
“I think they should be banned. There’s no reason for a typical gun owner to own anything that converts a semi-automatic to something that behaves like an automatic,” Flores, a gun owner, told The Hill in an interview just off the House floor.
“Based on the videos I heard and saw, and now that I’ve studied up on what a bump stock is — I didn’t know there was such a thing — there’s no reason for it,” he said.
“I have no problem from banning myself from owning it.”
Flores was joined by several House Republican moderates, including Reps. Charlie Dent (Pa.), Ryan Costello (Pa.), Leonard Lance (N.J.) and Pete King (N.Y.), in saying it should be banned.
“I’m ready to say that they should not be in public use. I think they are a problem. I support a ban on bump stocks. I don’t see any purpose for them,” Dent told The Hill.
“The law is clear to me that automatic weapons are banned in this country, as they should be,” he added.
Costello said, “Purchasing bump stocks off the shelf, enabling a semi-automatic firea
So, Rep. Flores and his accomplices not only don't have a problem banning bump stocks but violating their oath of office and attacking the Second Amendment.
By the way, you can get a cheap bump stock for about $99, or a more sophisticated one for a little over $300. Get several while your at it before these people are willing to lock you up over a piece of plastic and then seek to get them out of office.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
