Senator Dianne Feinstein: At It Again

With the gun-control debate at full swing it shouldn't come as a surprise that Senator Dianne Feinstein, the author of the 1994-2000 "assault weapon" and "large" ammunition magazine ban has made it known that she will be soon introducing a bill more restrictive than the original. Leaders in the U.S. senate have stated that January 22 will be the first day on which new Senate legislation can be proposed, so that will be the most likely date for the new, sweeping legislation to be introduced.

The NRA-ILA obtained a draft of Feinstein's bill from her website. The new bill adopts new definitions of "assault weapons" that would affect a much larger variety of firearms, requires current owners of such firearms to register them with the federal government under the National Firearms Act, and requires ferfeiture of the firearms upon the deaths of their current owners to the government.

This is exactly the kind of legislation that we as a people do not want in our country. Over the last few weeks I have heard so many anti-gunners talk about their respect for hunters and how they have no desire to take their guns away. I am a hunter. I love the sport, and I support everyone who participates. However a simple reading of the second amendment of this country will show anybody with a basic reading level that it was not intended for hunters. The second amendment was created to protect the people from a tyrannical government. I don't know about you, but if the government becomes out of control and starts beating down citizens doors demanding they confiscate their firearms, what good is a 5 shot hunting rifle or shotgun going to do against a true fully automatic assault rifle?

This insane senator is the reason why citizens who want to protect their second amendment rights and their families need to support the NRA. They have the resources to fight against these attempts at stealing our freedom. Politicians with gun control agendas claim their actions will make America safer, but they are only making us a weaker and more vulnerable to criminals as well as the government. I urge you, if you have not yet joined the ranks of millions of gun owners nationwide, sign up for the NRA today. Stand up and fight the insanity.

  1. I forgot to include the bill also would require gun owners to get fingerprinted and photographed like common criminals.
