Sen. Feinstein to introduce gun-control bill next year
LA Times ^ | 12-16-12 | Morgan Little

Posted on 12/16/2012 1:16:53 PM PST by An Old Man

WASHINGTON — Two days after the shooting deaths of 26 people at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school, Sen. Dianne Feinstein pledged Sunday that she would introduce new gun-control legislation at the beginning of next year’s congressional session.

“It [the bill] will ban the sale, the transfer, the transportation and the possession,” the California senator said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Not retroactively, but prospectively. And it will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets.”

I wonder if this would cover her own pistol?

Oddly enough, DiFi didn’t jump at the chance to introduce new CCW expansion on the heels of the Clackamas mall shooting, in which a CCW holder stopped that particular massacre in its tracks. http://www.nwcn.com/news/oregon/183609901.html

It won’t decrease the shootings in Oakland. I can tell you that much.

All politicians should be asked if they have armed bodyguards and are they willing to restrict their armament or give them up entirely.

More gun control. Oh, goodie. I guess she prefers the U.S. to be more like Norway — where the gun control laws are much stricter, and the 2011 sniper killed 77 people.

Her bill would be an outright ban on certain weapons and all hi-cap mags. No grandfathering, no posession. It would require turning these in or having them confiscated and/or likely a felony to be caught in possession.

It is easy to say, but I'll bet there are some democrats who wont go along with it, either. And since when is a .223 rifle an "assault" weapon??

Not only does the idea of new “gun control” legislation piss me off. It especially ticks me off when done as a knee jerk reaction. And quite frankly the absolutely horrendous “attempt” at writing a report by this reporter in the LA Times is just another kick in the teeth. Didn’t an editor look at this!

Does anyone here think that this would pass? Just when the economy is getting such great attention she comes along with a deflector. She is just trying to deflect your attention fron the economy.

Do you still think that she has any chance in hell of passing guncontrol with all of us watching congress.

I will give DiFi one thing she is consistent and quite predictable. If she gets her way the other 49 states or 56 states, depending on who is talking, are going to get a dose of “California values”. To quote Hudson from Aliens “Stop your grinnin’ and drop your linen! “

We're going to have a long bitter fight with these people again.

One tack that may help is to point out that in all of these recent cases, the shooter has been a diagnosed psychotic. The fruits of deinstitutionalization. Commit the crazies, and the rest of can keep our guns.

I hate to put it this way, but the commies smell blood.

The emotions of this case are going to go a long way in persuading too many into going along with it.

Gird your loins and don't count on any support from those who should interject common sense into this incident.

JMHO.

I warned all in Missouri they needed to get out and vote for Akin. Failure to do so would result in the re-election of Mother McCaskill. She will most assuredly sign on to this crap as she has all the rest of Obi's agenda.

And I suppose any such act--like the `Affordable Care' act--would have a considerable number of exemptions. This is pre-revolutionary talk on their part, whether that Californian lefty knows it or not. I'm getting overwrought. Never mind.

“Her bill would be an outright ban on certain weapons and all hi-cap mags. No grandfathering, no posession. It would require turning these in or having them confiscated and/or likely a felony to be caught in possession.”

If she is accurate in that the proposed bill will be written prospectively and not retroactively then it will be a de-facto grandfathering of previously possessed weapons and magazines.
http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/prospectively

A retroactively effective law is an Ex Post Facto Law and violates Article I, Section 9, Clause 3, and Section 10, Clause 1, of the U.S. Constitution.

If she introduced a bill to that effect, she knows that it would fail, so it would just be done for show.

What is worrisome is if she gets the bill attacked to some “must pass” legislation. The two most horrific examples of this come to mind with the last two NDAA bills, that had awful, terrible, and unconstitutional provisions added to them.

And the Republicans were so utterly spineless that they passed the bills anyway.

One of these provisions was for the detention of American citizens by the military. Is that enough of a violation of your constitutional rights? So do you think for an instant the spineless ones would hesitate to vote in favor of a gun control bill inserted in there?

“But...but...but...we *have* to fund the military!”, they squeal, like the co-dependent pleasure piggies they are.

Yes. It could very well pass.

Demographics have changed quite a bit since 1994. NRA/2A supporters are overwhelmingly white males and we just don't have the numbers we used to. Sad truth is, outside of the ever-shrinking white male demographic, there's no great love in this country for assault rifles and high-cap magazines.

And come Christmas morning when we turn on our TVs to scenes of grieving parents, unopened presents and little coffins getting lowered into the ground, every minivan-driving soccer mom across the land will be screaming for Obama and congress to do something.

Buy 'em now!

“Sen. Dianne Feinstein pledged Sunday that she would introduce new gun-control legislation at the beginning of next year’s congressional session.”

Where it will get buried in committee and forgotten. Even the Dems know this dog won’t hunt. They are hoping to get the House back in 2014 and with Boehner’s help it may happen so they will not rock the gun boat.

It means you can't buy any new ones but you can keep the ones you already own (she'll come for those later).

DiFi isn't stupid. She wants an AWB that actually has a chance of passing.

this too old to legislate liberal needs to lead the way by giving up her guns...

I am afraid this legislation if passed wil be more horrendeously unenforced and create more crime and criminals than prohibition and may spark a real civil war...

these people are either really stupid or just trying to use a crisis to their advantage...

How many bullets will the govn. let us buy, if it goes that far? I think that is the next assault - limit the number of bullets one can buy. Some idiot Senator said that yesterday. He said the govn. couldn’t get all the guns, but they could regulate the sale of bullets.

If you need to shore up your ammo., now would be a good time - we need to do that.

I thought the quote plainly says "not retroactively". Not that I believe her, but that's what it says.
