Senator Feinstein Introduces Her New Gun Ban Bill
Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced her new gun ban bill today.
She and her fellow Democrats refer to this as an 'assault weapons' ban, which translates into pretty much anything that has scary cosmetics they disapprove or. Or as Senator Feinstein tweeted in words that would make anyone with actual combat experience laugh out loud, "weapons of war that do not belong on our streets."
There's a detailed list of over 150 weapons she wants banned, and most of them aren't even close to what could be called a military weapon or even an assault rifle, as the list includes pistols and shotguns as well:
According to the bill, the sale, transfer, importation and manufacture of any of these guns would be prohibited.
Although there's a provision grandfathering any of these weapons already owned, the transfer ban would prevent anyone willing or bequeathing them to anyone else. The idea, of course, is to eliminate these guns entirely over time so that no one but the bodyguards of the elites has them.
The bill also calls for a 'national registry' of anyone owning firearms, the better to confiscate them later. Because I guarantee you, this is only a first step. You see, Senator Feinstein likes the idea of turning all of our cities into replicas of Chicago, where gun violence is endemic.Because she and her fellow elites have all thr protection they require, usually at taxpayer expense.
This bill shows the typical contempt the Left has for our Constitution, particularly those whom hold office and have sworn an oath to protect it.
If they don't like the Second Amendment, there's a constitutional remedy to change it by the amendment process. But the Left never plays by those rules,because they'd lose. Instead, they'll try shoving legislation through by any means necessary, and if that doesn't work they'll get some Lefty hack wearing a judicial robe they've managed to appoint to the Bench to impose what they want.
What remains to be seen is if the majority of Americans are going to sit by passively while their liberty is taken away.
We'll see, indeed.
