Gun Laws of America: Critical Items Missing in Feinsteinís Gun Bill
The Daily Caller ^ | 30 January, 2013 | Alan Korwin

Posted on 01/31/2013 7:11:02 AM PST by marktwain

I’ve just finished reading the 122 pages of Diane Feinstein’s latest “gun-control” bill, Senate Bill S.150, and was surprised to find some important things missing.

Even more surprising was one small item briefly mentioned on page 13 that has not been reported in any “news” coverage I have seen. It’s a whopper — it invalidates her entire list of guns, and I’ve written ten books on this topic, I know what I’m saying! — but first, here’s what’s missing.

1. Criminals

Nothing addresses criminals — everything is aimed at innocent people who haven’t done anything wrong. There is not even any “malum in se” (legalese for intent to do wrong) or criminal intention. It is all “malum prohibitum” (wrong because we say so), the worst kind of bureaucratic and government abuse — crime by decree. The critics appear to be right. This is not about gun control, it is purely about control. The bill simply removes the right to own property Americans currently own.

(That’s not completely accurate about criminals; there is one small requirement for anyone carrying a “grandfathered semi-auto ‘assault’ weapon” or having one in ‘such close proximity’ to yourself that you could retrieve it and use it as if you carried it, if a “prohibited possessor” came near, so that the prohibited individual has no ability to access the weapon, or else keep it protected with ‘a secure gun storage or safety device’. Yes, it’s complicated. It seems to mean you can machine gun (or otherwise shoot) criminals without being charged with having a gun near bad people. And of course, prohibited possessors are prohibited.) Licensed importers, manufacturers and dealers are exempt.

No requirement for drug lords and gang bangers to do background checks on new recruits, before giving them guns....

When Fineswine starts punishing criminals instead of law-abiding citizens who value their Second Amendment rights, she will be relevant. Until then, she should be ignored.

Here’s a great video to send to DiFi, who, IMO, doesn’t know anything about history nor do the Ruling Class fools in Congress:

I’ll bet Gangs don’t even have to E-Card or check the SSN’s of potential members.

She did address criminals.

She said that all government officials could keep their guns.

How about the states enlisting a reserve militia of its firearms owning citizens which would allow them to possess anything LEOs use. That would nullify these bastards unconstitutional, repressive law.

They do have a background check for potential new recruits. It just doesn’t involve the government....and failing it can be fatal.

I guess that's what they mean by "level the playing field": Nobody is left standing.

It's a matter of social justice you know.
