Feinstein’s Anti-Gun Witch Hunt
December 28, 2012 in Guns
The last couple years have been a major milestone in the process of disarming the public. The attack on the Second Amendment has come directly from the US government through the operation of Fast and Furious; the UN Arms Trade Treaty, and the unfortunate opportunism through the mass shootings of Aurora and Newtown that have occurred in the latter part of 2012.
Of course this has not been without a political circus that the Obama administration has not taken advantage of. After all Rahm Emanuel said, “We can’t let a crisis go to waste.” (Hilary Clinton said similar things as well.) We have even seen the false left-right paradigm exposed in recent shootings because of the hand-in-hand approach that the Democrats and Republicans have displayed on national television. While posing as different, they have actually come out and truly shown their colors. This only proves once again that they are behind the scenes working on similar goals. While publically entertaining the masses with their disagreements on secondary issues.
We have crazies like Rep. Donna Edwards from Maryland who said, “The Second Amendment is important…But we gotta get the guns.” We also have retiring Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas say, “It’s the semiautomatics and those large magazines that can be fired off very quickly. I think that does need to be looked at.” Thankfully Hutchison will not be able to vote for any upcoming assault weapons ban bill this year.
Fast-forward to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, who is set to introduce a bill on the first day of Congress that will officially ban assault weapons. She has been quoted as saying, “Who needs these military style assault weapons? Who needs an ammunition feeding device capable of holding 100 rounds?” Concerning the specifics of the bill, last Sunday on Meet the Press she said, “It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and possession, not retroactively, but prospectively, and ban the sale of clips of more than 10 bullets…The purpose of this bill is to get…weapons of war off the streets.”
What Feinstein and her legislation failed to clarify is that although people who already possess assault weapons that are targeted within this bill would be grandfathered in, it actually requires the same citizens to register their guns, provide a photo ID of them, and submit their fingerprints. This would not only eliminate the private sell of guns but would also create a potential list of “threats” to the federal government…
