BREAKING: Dianne Feinstein Introduces Federal Bill to Confiscate Guns
thetruthaboutguns.com ^ | 6-6-2014 | Nick Leghorn

Posted on 06/07/2014 3:05:44 PM PDT by servo1969

We all saw this one coming. Two weeks after Elliot Roger stabbed three people and shot three more, a trio of legislators from California (including Dianne Feinstein) have proposed a new federal law called “The Pause for Safety Act” which would allow anyone at any time to seek a “firearms restraining order” against an individual to prevent them from purchasing any new firearms and also confiscate any firearms they may already own. From Barbara Boxer’s website, here are the details we have at the moment:

The new legislation – The Pause for Safety Act – will include the following provisions:

• One, it would help ensure that families and others can go to court and seek a gun violence prevention order to temporarily stop someone close to them who poses a danger to themselves or others from purchasing a firearm.
• Two, it would help ensure that families and others can also seek a gun violence prevention warrant that would allow law enforcement to take temporary possession of firearms that have already been purchased if a court determines that the individual poses a threat to themselves or others.
• Three, it would help ensure that law enforcement makes full use of all existing gun registries when assessing a tip, warning or request from a concerned family member or other close associate.

The scariest part of this proposed legislation is the idea that anyone can ask for one of these restraining orders. So, for example, if a gun control activist got ahold of a sign-in sheet from a local gun range, they could start spamming the judicial system with these “gun violence prevention warrants,” claiming that they believe these individuals to be about to commit a crime, and send a squad of police officers to their doorstep to confiscate their firearms. For their own good, of course.

Now, what was that line about no one wanting to take your guns?

Which groups do Feinstein and Obama give weapons to?

1. al Qaeda <=====
2. US Troops
3. Nnarcoterrorists <=====

And to do it they LIE to Congress and the American people.
This cannot possibly end well.

Blatantly unconstitutional. Of course, the liberals are pushing everything AND you never know what some idiot judge will do, so this WILL have to be attacked and defeated.

Why do I live in a country wherein basic Constitutional rights are under constant assault from crackpot legislators from California and Nevada?

I don’t have any problem with family members having more influence in having a family member involuntarily hospitalized but the idea that a restraining order will stop someone from getting a gun is pure stupidity.

Step 1: Identify liberals/Democrats in your life.
Step 2: disown them
Step 3: Post signs on your front lawn to warn others if you suspect Democrats may live near you. They are a danger to American citizens.

I am not completely kidding. Eventually it will come to that.

This is good timing, but don’t expect a vote before the mid term elections. It is a great issue for republicans.

Most of my family are liberals.

I also know of two local cases in the last couple of years where families had unsuccessfully tried to force mentally ill relatives into hospitals only to see them commit truly horrific murders within weeks or days of going to court.

One was found with the victim’s head in a bag and the other was found with the victim’s intestines wrapped around his neck. Neither case involved a gun.

No way DiFi. It all sounds and looks good on paper, but these are liberals we’re dealing with. They will go beyond what the law states and fill that legislation so full of loopholes that it will prevent any private citizen from ever owning a gun when it’s all said and done. We all know the endgame anyways with these people and this is a big step towards that goal.

I’d like to slightly amend the bill:

The new legislation – The Pause a Lying Politician for Safety Act – will include the following provisions:

• One, it would help ensure that families and others can go to court and seek a prevention order to temporarily stop their Congress person who poses a danger to themselves or their country by lying.

• Two, it would help ensure that families and others can also seek a prevention warrant that would allow law enforcement to take temporary possession of a Congressperson if a court determines that the Congressperson has been lying to themselves or others.

• Three, it would help ensure that law enforcement makes full use of all existing public statements and recorded videos when assessing a tip, warning or request from a concerned family member or other close associate.

A federal domestic relations gun confiscation statute? Let’s see them enforce it. They don’t enforce many of their own laws.
If they did it might trigger CWII.
Keep in mind that even when they come quietly, proposing “reasonable gun control measures” ... “gun control” means firearms confiscation. So Fineswine is just being honest for a change.
She’s like a demented Energizer gun control bunny.

I have done that. The libs in my life only get perfunctory acknowledgment, and they know I appreciate their absence.

42% of America - the lib agenda group - must be feeling the same thing. Since we can’t put them all on, say, Guam or Samoa, we must sequester them financially, emotionally, cut every tie until their social ties are only amongst themselves.

Then when they learn that conservative principles are lifting states around the country but liberal policies are killing the states that uphold them, they might finally begin to understand.

More personally, if you treat rats and libs like they are literally infected and you keep every distance from them you can, they might start to wonder why they are being isolated as the disease carriers they are.

"One, it would help ensure that families and others can go to court and seek a gun violence prevention order to temporarily stop someone close to them who poses a danger to themselves or others from purchasing [emphasis added] a firearm."

Also, note that Congress has for years ignored legislative attempts by patriot lawmakers to require Congress to self-police itself by requiring all bills to reference constitutional clauses which give Congress the power to make a given bill in the first place.

The constitutionality of federal gun-control laws for civilians are extremely questionable for the following reasons.

First, the Supreme Court has historically clarified that one of the reasons for the 2nd Amendment is to prevent the federal government from making laws which limit citizens from using guns to exercise the natural right for citizens to protect themselves.

"The second and tenth counts are equally defective. The right there specified is that of "bearing arms for a lawful purpose." This is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The second amendment declares that it shall not be infringed, but this, as has been seen, means no more than that it shall not be infringed by Congress. This is one of the amendments that has no other effect than to restrict the powers of the national government, leaving the people to look for their protection against any violation by their fellow citizens of the rights it recognizes [emphases added], to what is called, in The City of New York v. Miln, 11 Pet. 139, the "powers which relate to merely municipal legislation, or what was, perhaps, more properly called internal police," "not surrendered or restrained" by the Constitution of the United States." —United States v. Cruikshank, 1875.

In fact, the Supreme Court has relatively recently clarified that police protection is not a constitutionally protected right.

The Right to Self-Defense

Finally, where the constitutionally of all federal gun laws are concerned, other than having the Article I, Section 8 responsibility to maintain the armed forces, it is disturding that Constitution-ignoring socialist FDR is regarded as the father of modern gun-control laws for civilians.

Franklin Roosevelt: The Father of Gun Control

The bottom line about constitutional gun rights is the following. The Founding States had made the 2nd Amendment in part to clarify that citizens were expected to provide their own police protection imo.
