Senator Feinstein’s Gun Grab Much Worse
Just got an e-mail from Sen. Rand Paul explaining Sen. Feinstein’s upcoming gun grab. It’s amazing what these elected officials will attempt in order to have their way and eliminate guns.
In a nutshell, here are the main points to the upcoming legislation Sen. Feinstein is set to introduce:
- Ban the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of 120 specifically named rifles, shotguns and handguns!
- Ban the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of ALL firearms with a detachable magazine and at least one “military characteristic” — which could mean just about anything that makes a gun “look scary;”
- Ban the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of magazines holding more than 10 rounds;
- Force owners of ALL “grandfathered” weapons to undergo an intrusive background check and fingerprinting — treating law-abiding citizens like criminals;
- Force owners of ALL “grandfathered” weapons to federally register their guns after obtaining a permission slip from local law enforcement showing their guns are not in violation of state or local law.
Again, the above list simply represents the basics of Sen. Feinstein’s fight to eventually eliminate guns. Let’s not forget that Sen. Feinstein herself has a concealed weapons permit for her own protection, but she doesn’t mind essentially stripping 2nd Amendment rights from average law-abiding citizens, does she?
I spent 25 years in California and I know first hand what it is like to live there among some of most restrictive laws in the nation. Gun crime still exists and is higher there per capita than many other states. This is due (mainly) to gangs and the criminal element who are not at all encumbered by the existing laws in California.
Interestingly enough, California is one of the few states (possibly the only state) that has what is called the “DOJ Approved Handgun” list. If the gun you would like to buy is not on that list, forget it. You can’t get one, unless you do so illegally or if you’ve had one in your possession before the gun ban for that weapon went into effect.
This particular list is always changing and becoming even more restrictive. The biggest reason why some guns do not make the list is because it doesn’t pass California’s drop test. That means, the gun manufacturer is supposed to send thousands of dollars worth of guns to California officials so that they can spend their time (on the taxpayer dime) dropping loaded guns onto the ground from various heights. If the gun accidentally fires, it does not make the cut.
If the manufacturer prefers not to send guns to California for this set of tests, it also by default does not make the cut. In some of those cases, these guns are made available, but only to law enforcement people, because we know they never drop their weapons…
The point is that California has done whatever it can to restrict gun purchases by legal residents of California. Again, the criminals have no problem with any of the restrictive legislation or rules since they do not go to the local gun store to buy their weapons. They obtain them illegally on the mean streets and that’s that. So again, all the laws in the world simply inconvenience the law-abiding citizen, treating us as though we are already criminals.
I had one Leftist tell me the other day that “everyone is a law-abiding citizen until they’re arrested.” Of course, this is not even close to the truth, but this is the type of tripe that those on the Left believe. There are too many cases of felons (people who have already been arrested, charged, and even spent time in jail for crimes) that have illegal weapons in their possession, yet somehow, they get away with it, at least until they are caught again. This is normal for criminals who rely on guns anyway.
These criminals know they cannot obtain weapons through legal channels, so what is left for them? Obtaining weapons through illegal channels, which is what they do. They’re already felons, so what does it matter?
But if you take a few moments to study the five-point list above, some of it should shock you. Of course, if you hate guns, none of it will shock you. If, on the other hand, you understand why the Founders put the 2nd Amendment in, you will understand that what Dianne Feinstein wants to do is really illegal. Everything she is attempting seeks to infringe upon an aspect of the 2nd Amendment, in spite of the fact that the 2nd Amendment ends with the words “shall not be infringed.” That doesn’t matter to people like Sen. Feinstein because they have an agenda and the agenda is to eventually remove guns from society.
If you look though Feinstein’s list, we would have to say that, like Mr. Obama’s 23-step program for tighter gun-control, there is really nothing in there that would have prevented Sandy Hook. We need to understand that truth. If we grasp that, then we are left with one question: why is Feinstein doing this? The only logical answer is the one I’ve already given; that she wants to eliminate guns from society. Actually, she wants to eliminate guns from the hands of law-abiding citizens. There is not one thing that our government has stated since Sandy Hook that would have any effect at all on criminals.
I woke up at about 5:30 am this morning and I was angry. I was angry at the fact that we have politicians who believe they can introduce legislation that will – if passed – abrogate my rights as a law-abiding citizen. I am angry when I see Mr. Obama stand up there, lecturing me on the value of life, when he has consistently shown that he does not care one iota for the life of the unborn. It’s all a sham while he gives lip service to the idea that he really does support the 2nd Amendment. No, he does not, and neither does Sen. Feinstein or other people in Congress like her.
Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) went into politics for one reason and one reason only: her husband was gunned down by Colin Ferguson, who killed a total of six people and injured 19.  I wrote about Ferguson before and how he had an illegal gun in his possession as he traveled from California to New York. He also carried it concealed when he traveled.
While in California, the landlord of his apartment stated that he had heard Ferguson singing about killing white people. There were numerous signs related to his mental instability, but they were ignored, except that he was eventually asked to move out of his apartment because of his constant ramblings related to his racist views of white people.
Previous to this, Ferguson had been placed on a list of dangerous people to watch out for by the New York State Worker’s Compensation Board.
Ferguson purchased his gun in California after waiting the required 15-days (at that time). However, from that point onward, he began to carry his gun illegally in a concealed manner. He had no concealed carry permit.
After he moved to New York, he continued to carry his gun in a concealed manner, even though it was fully illegal in New York to do so. The people he shot on the Long Island train did not have any guns at all. It is possible that had someone had a legally concealed weapon, they could have ended the situation before Ferguson had killed six and injured 19. Instead, people grabbed Ferguson after his 15-round magazine emptied, requiring him to put another magazine in his gun. By the way, he also had a backpack with 160 more bullets with him. Once the group of people on the train grabbed Ferguson and kicked his gun away from him, the shooting, deaths, and injuries ceased.
Rather than people – especially politicians – realizing that something was wrong with the current anti-gun laws, they immediately went into hyper-drive attempting to pass even more restrictive legislation. Eventually, widow McCarthy entered politics as a one-issue politician and has been pushing consistently for stricter gun laws ever since.
McCarthy, along with people like Feinstein, are not at all interested in allowing law-abiding citizens to have guns. Their goal is a total and complete elimination of guns from society. This is absolutely impossible, but they still push on in the hopes of being able to pass their archaic and infringing bills that will only allow crime to increase, not decrease.
It is difficult to say this in new ways, but the truth is that making it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to obtain guns and/or ammo will not create a safer society. It will create a safe-haven for criminals who will continue to obtain the weapon of their choice on the streets. Knowing that the average law-abiding citizen may not have a gun (depending upon how restrictive legislation becomes) will only make it easier for criminals to take advantage of us. This is obviously something that Sen. Feinstein does not care about though. Either that or she has no ability to logically look at a situation.
In the end, if Dianne Feinstein gets her way, I’ll have a black powder rifle that shoots one ball at a time. If you stop to consider it, Feinstein and others obviously believe that I’m a criminal or that if given the opportunity, I would become a criminal. Because of that, she believes that the government must limit my access to guns and ammo. That’s the only explanation for her upcoming legislation. There really is no other reason for it, since it is quite clear that, like Mr. Obama, nothing she is suggesting will have any impact on criminals, nor would any of her legislation prevent tragedies like Sandy Hook.
I’m sure if you ask her, she will tell you otherwise, with some gobbledygook explanation of how her legislation would indeed make it more difficult for criminals to obtain weapons that they could use in massacres. When pressed, she would be able to offer no details at all.
Grandfathering in weapons, etc., would do nothing with respect to criminals. Do you honestly believe that any criminal is going to obey any of the legislation that is passed? If they can obtain weapons and ammo on the streets, it’s clear they live in a completely different world from the one you and I live in and the laws that affect you and me – the law-abiding citizens – are completely ignored by them.
This needs to be said over and over again until it sinks in. People like Sen. Feinstein (and McCarthy) need to be hounded with questions about how their legislation will keep guns out of criminals’ hands until they either answer those questions with actual information or admit that their real agenda is to literally press the “delete” key on the 2nd Amendment.
Meanwhile, the elitists like Dianne Feinstein, Mr. Obama, and all the rest have their necessary protection, don’t they? Armed guards for their children’s schools (and I believe that it is a good idea, by the way), concealed carry permits (another good idea), and more. But why am I treated as less than simply because I am not in their “class” of citizenry? It’s wrong and it needs to stop.
