Senator Dianne Feinstein says she'll reintroduce assault weapon legislation

Here we go again........ Seems like the old gun controllers that pushed this crap back in the early 1990's are still around and still pushing the same old crap...and crap being crap, it still smells the same.

I wonder if they realize the election is just a few weeks away? Have they forgot what happened?? Are they that blinded to toss it ALL away, perusing gun control legislation that is proven extremely unpopular? And with a strong pro-gun majority in both houses any gun control legislation is almost doomed to fail before it even starts?

Just a reminder, lest we forget... Mr and Mrs America, turn them in...





Now excuse me, I must head back to Charlotte tonight!!

Her bill will be given a number, and promptly be put on a shelf somewhere where it will gather dust and be forgotten about.

And it will die in committee again.

6. Very true...BUT...

Not before being discussed on the nightly news, and exploding all over the internet and Facebook...

As proof "that the Democrats want to take YOUR guns away"... Someone needs to tell her to "check the gun ban talk", she does not have a clue that she is talking about far and away the MOST popular guns in America right now, and have been for about 15 years.

Talk like that costs us votes.

9. I don't think she cares

 

It gets her points in her district, so she doesn't really care about the rest of the party. Personally, I can't wait for this hypocrite of a woman to retire. She opposes CCW but yet has one of her own, talk about "do as I say, not as I do".

13. Doubtful she will reintroduce the old AWB. Likely it will be the new "improved" one.

In 2003 H.R.. 2038 was what was introduced. Here are the details: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-108hr2038ih/pdf/BILLS-108hr2038ih.pdf

16. Lol, that one had some really retarded pieces..

a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and a firearm shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.


So everything from m1 garands to winchester bolt-action rifles to every pistol ever carried by a cop is now an 'assault weapon'.

What a moronic piece of legislation.

18. I am amazed that they are trying again to ban some guns by name.

The Ruger Mini-14 is on the ban list. It also bans duplicates of it. So if it passed all Ruger would have to do is make some minor cosmetic changes and give the gun a new name.

20. Oh they tried to cover that too..

originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm


Depending on how much of an asshole the AG wanted to be, that would cover damned near anything Ruger made.

Anything that looks like a '73 Colt SAA could be banned.

...that the military has a tendancy to adopt firearms that are originally meant for civilian use, not the other way around.

22. Just rename the rifle...

...and add a carry handle... (as shown below)




In the literature, identify the carry handle as a toilet paper roll holder and explain that it's there specifically for next round of...


...ASSWIPES...

...that try to ban it.

Here's a couple of on-target observations from the comments in response to the article:

She has to be endorsing Romney. Introducing this in front of a close election is idiocy.

She just sold a million rifles and handed Romney a million moderate voters.

27. This appears to be a case of Quid Pro Quo

Senator Feinstein has become noticeably less vocal about gun control over the last decade. She must realize it is no longer a vote winner and has moved on to other topics. Outside of an obligatory statement now and then, she does not seem to have the enthusiasm she once had.

Her introduction of this legislation must be to repay a past favor, or she need some assistance in another area. I would expect that once the announcement has been made to the public (keeping up her end of the deal), it will be sent to committee where not even Senator Feinstein will pursue it.

29. The last one did absolutely nothing to influence crime rates, but . . .

 

I've got a feeling if we keep doing the exact same things that failed in the past over and over again it'll work.

Somehow.

Possibly involving warlocks or voodoo.

30. Or quantum mechanics..

.. and the heisenberg uncertainty principle.. and a dead/not-dead cat..

But back in the real world, President Clinton's DOJ funded a study on the AWB's effectiveness. Here's a portion of what they found..

Should it be renewed, the banís effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement. AWs were rarely used in gun crimes even before the ban. LCMs are involved in a more substantial share of gun crimes, but it is not clear how often the outcomes of gun attacks depend on the ability of offenders to fire more than ten shots (the current magazine capacity limit) without reloading.
...
All of this suggests that the banís impact on gun violence is likely to be small.
...
there has been no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence, based on indicators like the percentage of gun crimes resulting in death or the share of gunfire incidents resulting in injury, as we might have expected had the ban reduced crimes with both AWs and LCMs.

31. NRA talking points put out by a rightwing gun-religionist

 

with a small penis. In europe they don't have studies about guns and they are far safer and more civil and beautiful than we are.
