Posted on 03/19/2013 6:21:22 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
After a meeting yesterday with Harry Reid (D-NV), Sen. Dianne Feinstein learned that her controversial assault weapons ban mess will not be part of the gun control bill package heading to the senate floor next month.
The AWB could be offered up as an amendment, but the bill was already considered a long shot, as senate democrats will be facing a competitive election cycle for 2014. Many face constituents back home who do not support such legislation.

This would be reassuring, except four years ago she could just as easily have written: "ObamaCare could be offered up as an amendment, but the bill was already considered a long shot, as senate democrats will be facing a competitive election cycle for 2010. Many face constituents back home who do not support such legislation." When it comes to big gains in government power over us, the thugs in the democrat party do not care what it costs them personally or the country as a whole. There is no bigger gain than disarming the people. If the far left can accelerate the transition from a free country to a people's republic, it's worth any price to them.
Thank God elections of senators are staggered. Can you imagine the nightmare if every one of the rat bastards were elected on the same day every six years?
“Hasta La Vista Assault Weapons Ban (Feinstein Bill Shot Down)”
For now.....it will come around again and again, as many times as it takes...and the protestors feeling fulfilled as always, will go back to sleep...and it will be passed w/o a whimper—alinskied again!!!!!
In a just world, Feinstein would be nothing more than a village yenta. Unfortunately in this one she has the power and staus of a United States Senator.
Why should they be scared?
The Left holds the Senate, and the House is capitulating. The AWB will be ObamaCare Redux.
Now the rest of the bills need to die.
Funny how this works.
The dems have a problem with you owning a .22 that holds more than 10 rounds, yet they don’t have a problem with a known drug user and associate of domestic terrorist having his finger on the nuclear button.
This thing was a wind up for Chuck Schumer’s bill.
Thank G-d for elections!
That was just one wild haymaker from a crazy who just keeps swinging and the round isn't over. Those jabs and below the belt shots just keep coming and it looks like the ref is family.
Get lazy or sloppy and one of those wild swings will be that "lucky punch".
I still wonder if she “fed” Dan White’s mental instability and “armed and aimed” him at Harvey Milk. Wasn’t she first on the scene to find his body? After all, his death is what jump-started her political career, bully that she is. It really is odd that someone who has such a hatred for all things firearm used to have a carry permit. If she were so traumatized by finding Milk, one would think that her trauma would not allow her to handle AR15s and other weapons with such ease. There must be more to the woman’s psychology than we acknowledge.
Feinstein knew this was going to happen and went through her theatrics anyway, or she thought she would be able to build enough public outrage to push it through. If it was the latter, it backfired.
Either way, the Democrats realize this is a losing issue. One has to wonder why they are doing it. For some reason, they seem to think it will help them in the 2014 mid-terms, and think the outcome will be different than 1994 (the last time they did this).
Good news for a change! Hope they shoot down (no pun intended) the entire farce of a gun control mess!
Keep in mind that it was never intended to pass,
it was intended to make the “compromise” palatable by comparison.
Don’t forget to vote in 2014. Campaigning for pro-Second Amendment candidates would be even better.
I’m happy with this development but I’m not letting my guard down for a sec. They (Progs, Commies, whatever they’re calling themselves on any given day) will never stop trying to take our guns away.
If they can’t do it at the Fed level they will try the state level.
If they can’t do it at the state level they will try the local level.
If they can’t do it at the local level they will try the Fed level again!
Meanwhile, they will constantly be trying to do it at the international level if they can.
They will never stop. Every gun not under their control is a gun that may interfere with their plans.
I’m certain there is more legislation being drafted right now.
All very, very predictable.
GOP caught in a classic "rope-a-dope" again.
Well, being from SF, wouldn't she be a 'Yentl'?..........
” Keep in mind that it was never intended to pass,

This was my thought as well.
Don’t let up yet, troops! Schumer’s bill is far, far worse than the AWB.
For example, once you register your firearm, if you have a roommate or landlord, you can’t leave the registered gun for more than 7 days since it’s not registered to them.
If you let someone borrow your gun, say while hunting, you are in violation if you don’t do the “transfer” through an FFL.
Shooting down DiFi’s bill is intended to put you at ease.
They'll be back.
At least they had a few good tunes in the 70s
I’d like to get all schadenfreude about this, but there’s still a possibility that this is a trick. Get everyone mad about an outright ban, then slip in registration and taxes.
I guess we can just scrap thoughts about limiting New York Times to a single 100 word attack editorial per day.
We're a long way from being out of the woods.
Yeah. What’s that about?
That’s what I thought from the beginning, but part of me thinks you’re wrong. Part of me thinks this is what it appears: A crushing defeat for the Tyrants. That can’t have it all their way all the time. It is possible, and likely, that you’re right, so we can’t let up.
That’s the problem with big government, we can never let up, relax, and live our lives. We always have to watch them. I don’t think that’s what God intends for us.
“Keep in mind that it was never intended to pass,

Roger that! Eternal vigilance against tyranny is required. Never trust a radical left wing extremist demokkkrat scumbag if they are not in sight. Hell, don’t even trust them if they are in sight. Gotta watch the rino’s too.
Don’t get me wrong, they would have LOVED to get that piece of tyrany passed,
but it was intended to make the compromise in the “next bill” look better.
I smell a head fake here. I don’t trust any of them.
Maybe Cruz. Rest of them are in it for themselves.
Mixed feelings on this. Obviously, I am glad it was defeated, but it would have been better if the Democrat Senate had passed it, forcing many Democrat sentaors in pro-freedom states to face the political consquences of voting for it, only to have it defeated by the Republican controlled House.
Ah cmon, Vanilla Fudge was better.
Not really. Reid knows that the entire bill would fail to pass if the Feinstein provisions were included. He thinks he has enough votes to pass the "universal background" check bill but if Feinstein's bill were included the Sentate would get nothing. He and Durbin have counted the votes and know they must face reality. Giving her the opportunity to offer her bill as an amendment will let her propose the ban and it will get "shot" down. That will prove his point and he can say the Senate has done "something".
If it wasn’t for white Christians with guns, Feinstein would be a lampshade...
If it wasn’t for white Christians with guns, Schumer would have been a lampshade instead of a senator...
Yes, because they have worked so well. We shouldn't even be having these conversations if the people that are elected would abide by the Constitution.
Our Founding Fathers would have hung most of them by now.
Well they let Slimestein have her day in the sun before they shut her down. Dingy was never going to allow that POS unconstitutional bill be brought up for a vote. The votes just were not there. He can’t put those Dems who are up for re-election in the position of having to vote on a bill that will alienate gun owning voters. Dems own guns too.
I’m not cheering yet. I’m still worried about the magazine ban.
“watch the rinos too.”
