Posted on 03/26/2013 7:34:55 AM PDT by EXCH54FE
Gun owners relaxed a little last week when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid conceded that Democrats lack the votes for Senate passage of an assault weapon ban. But relaxing the fight is premature. Gun-control advocates had a good week, too, with small victories in Colorado and Maryland. The struggle over who gets to determine the meaning of the Second Amendment continues.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein isnt backing away from her scheme to outlaw the popular AR-15 black rifle. Mrs. Feinstein, who is easily scared, thinks the AR-15 looks scary because it reminds her of fearsome weapons. She intends to attach her ban as an amendment to a bill mandating government tracking of gun sales between individuals. A yes vote on the California Democrats proposal, which is expected to fail, is particularly loathsome to voters in the gun-friendly states of Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina and West Virginia, where incumbent Democratic senators and candidates are threatened, several severely so, in the 2014 elections. By Mr. Reids counting, Mrs. Feinstein is about 20 votes short of what she needs. Thats a lot.
In Colorado, Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, had all the votes he needed. He signed into law a requirement to monitor private gun sales and to impose a limit on the size of pistol and rifle magazines. Private sales to friends, neighbors or loved ones would become illegal, effectively turning law-abiding citizens into criminals, says the head of the County Sheriffs of Colorado, an organization representing 62 top county-level law enforcement officers. One sheriff says he wont enforce the new laws because they conflict with his oath to uphold the Constitution.

Don’t worry: there are a lot of Democrats who will be in tough elections, so they’re never going to vote for this.

Hang on a second...You guys have Diane all wrong...
She IS the epitome of expertise in regards to firearms, their uses, types, accessories, capabilities, specifications, knows the differences from readiing ALL sorts of publications, illustrations, specitfications etc etc etc...
All without even handling many of them...
If this be true, then I say that every single teenage young man in this country, and some around the world, would be world class gynocologists!!!
I applaud Magpul. Now other weapons/weapons accessory manufacturers like Armalite (Geneseo Ill) Rock River ( Colona, Ill) and Baretta U.S.A. (Accokeek, MD) need to follow suit and move out of these gun grabbing states and go where not only the citizens, but the government they vote in support them.
