Skip to comments.Dianne Feinstein pushes for semi-automatic rifle import ban based on 45-year-old law
Posted on 03/21/2014 7:07:43 AM PDT by rktman
California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein is circulating a letter on Capitol Hill calling once again for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and asking for President Barack Obama to keep his State of the Union promise to make 2014 a year of action.
Citing the Gun Control Act of 1968, Feinstein states, In recent years
importers of firearms have taken advantage of ATFs interpretation of the sporting purposes test to evade the import ban.

She can take 1968 and stick it up her ass. From my cold dead hands.
She may like that!
She's busy taking our guns from us.
A fully outfitted AR is pretty "sporty" in my opinion... whereas Feinstein would wet her pants at the mere sight.
Actually, that's not true and is what makes her blathering that much more infuriating. As far back as the early 80s she was championing gun bans all the while being one of the few in San Francisco with a carry permit.
The stupid cow probably has a closet full of select fire weapons in case us "crazies" attack her.
Gun accidents kill what? Maybe 1,000 per year?
Motorized vehicle accidents kill what? Maybe 50,000 per year?
Which category should be banned is obvious.
Airplanes too. If already banned, those 239 people in Flight 370 would still be alive (or at least with their families) today.
At least, we can all agree that any Make and Model of vehicle used to aid commission in any way, of a violent crime should be banned.
I wish this evil, ugly, dried up all hag would just blow away. She should find something more productive to do with her millions than screwing up the Bill of RIghts.
Sorry Diane, in 1968 I was too busy dodging
cong mortar rounds to pay attention, you say what?
uh kinda late for that isn’t it.
If you want it, come an take it.
The way of the warrior is found in death
and it’s a good day to die.
And just to keep to a higher plane...
“By my troth, I care not.
We are born owing death a life,
and who dies this year is quit for the nest.”
I’ve been making a goodly amount of money because of this stupid law. Import Israeli parts and have other manufacture parts here and tada — Tavor.
Tavor would totally go around us if simple direct import was allowed, but, because of the stupid law we can make some money.
My daughters do appreciate the college education this witch indirectly pays for.
This is all about control of mind, body and spirit, simple as that.
These people are our natural born enemies and need to be treated as such. They can pull 1934, 1968, 1994 etc from their keesters and apply whatever perverted convoluted lies they want, but the Constitution says NOTHING about ‘sporting’ or ATF, or any of that nonsense.
We’ll end up fighting these people in the streets one day.
That was probably the last time she ‘got some’.
Roger that. We returned from a deployment to find that the weapons we had purchased while on leave had to held until clarification could be made about the “importing” section of the “somebody killed bobby bill”. Took me almost 8 months before I could get my hands back on it. Of course all this crap occured while we were deployed and being young and stupid, didn’t realize the future implications at the time. Sadly, we’ve grown, uh, more aware. Maybe not wiser but at least more aware. ;>}
Thanks for your service brother.
(Yep, I'm going straight to H E double-hockey-sticks for that one)
Bravo. Bravo. Good going. Make sure the girls send difi a thank you card.
And of course not counting the legal murder of 1.2 million children per year. Guess it’s okay to have a license to kill and no license to speak as a complete moron.
She has had a CCW permit in CA for years. Just another example of the different standards for the ruling class.
Now, it's in the eye of E. Holder..................
Ms. Feinstein need to find me the place in the constitution where it says “sporting purposes”.
She also needs to explain to me why 3 gun is not a sport.
Thank you too bro.
These commie goons, won’t be satisfied until they
can turn the 50% of the country that oppose them
in to criminals to be locked up.
And that IS what all this is about.
Nice post on every level. Thanks.
And thanks for your service in the thick of it, from a Corpsman involved in the tail end of that shit a few years after you. Feinstein never served, never saw action, never put her life on the line. She has no place in such discussions and such decisions, and she has no face to think that she does.
“...imports of military-style weapons have increased dramatically in recent years, helping to fuel deadly gun violence along the Southwest border and in neighboring Mexico.”
She forgot to mention how those guns got to Mexico. Shout out to Eric Holder!!! ha ha
Congress has the ppwer to repeal the portion of the 1968 GCA that authorizes the AG to ban from reimportation.
We need to start pressing congressmen to do as such. The abuse of the Obama administration in applying it towards the M1 should have been an impetus for action.
Just when the backlogs get under a year, here comes the minion for the Gun Salesman of the Year.
Buy RGR stock!
For those who don’t remember those days of HELL gun owners went through, after the murder of John Kennedy, the news media went on a rampage to ban the most evil firearms in the world! The 5 shot bolt action army surplus rifle and the “Saturday Night Special!”
Every few weeks the newspapers carried the horror stories about the need to register and ban these firearms.
Then Bobby Kennedy was murdered with a handgun made in the USA. The media went berserk. The politicians rushed in the 1968 Gun Control Law.
It banned the import of Army surplus rifles and “Saturday Night Specials, but did not ban the USA made rifles or handguns.
M-98 Mauser Army rifle=EVIL and banned from import.
M-98 Mauser Police rifle=GOOD and allowed to import even though it is the same rifle.
RG=10 pistols, EVIL and Banned. (so they started assembling them in the USA.)
High quality Baby Browning and Walther PPK pistols EVIL and banned.
The firearms Feinstein wants to ban were considered Sporting rifles until the anti-gunners saw an opportunity to go for them. G H W Bush did ban some of them in his term, so we might say it is still “Bush’s Fault”.
Now, in the early 1970s, the anti handgunners discovered the Miller Decision of the SCOTUS. For several years many TV programs had anti-handgun scripts in which rifles were the “protected” firearm, but handguns not protected.
Even the show ALL IN THE FAMILY followed this script.
In 1981, actress Lee Grant was on GMA and declared “The NRA is a RIFLE organization! They should give up their handguns and they can keep their rifles!”
About 1985 the anti-gunners saw an opportunity to go after rifles and they haven’’t stopped since.
NEVER GIVE UP YOUR GUNS.
***Now I know why the water relief legislation is going nowhere.
She’s busy taking our guns from us. ***
Reminds me of the Humphrey Bogart movie SAHARA. “One rifle, One cup of water!”
Way past due time for a fumigation of Congress.
Now can I prove what I say, hummmmm?
Perhaps, Is she trying to enact laws (by standing a bill to do just that,) that stand in direct conflict with the Constitution, Over throw the country.
It is also not entirely unworthy of observation that, in declaring what shall be the supreme law of the land, the Constitution itself is first mentioned, and not the laws of the United States generally, but those only which shall be made in pursuance of the Constitution, have that rank.
Thus, the particular phraseology of the Constitution of the United States confirms and strengthens the principle, supposed to be essential to all written Constitutions, that
a law repugnant to the Constitution is void,
and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument.
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both.
Read for your selves, it is not my opinion, its what the law says.
LOL! Nicely done but you forget that in order to adhere to these statements, those individuals would have to accept the constitution as the controlling document which they do not. Facts be damned. Especially since this document was written by a bunch of old hater white slave owner dudes. ;>}
new term alert! “Assault Pistol”
