Skip to comments.Details of Dianne Feinsteins Upcoming Assault Weapons ban begin leaking
Posted on 11/09/2012 3:19:36 PM PST by John S Mosby
Everyone saw this coming. Dianne Feinstein, the Democratic Senator from California and co-sponsor of the USA PATRIOT Act extension, has been rumored to be meeting with ATF officials in the past few days and trying to come up with an outline for her next attempt at passing a new assault weapons ban. It seems like she does this once a year anyway, but in the wake of the Obama re-election people are on high alert for anything gun control related. And this time, it seems like all that practice of introducing failed legislation is leading to a more disturbing version of the bill
David Codrea at the Examiner received the following tip from a source inside the NSSF:
I just heard that Sen. Feinsteins attorney is meeting right now with folks from FTB and ATF legal (Eric Epstein [legal], Todd Martin [Legal] and Earl Griffith [FTB] and others) to discuss a new SAW ban, that she would want to start pushing through as soon as (if) Obama gets reelected.
- No pistol grip allowed - No HC Mags - No grandfathering - No sale permissible if in possession
That is all I know right now

I hope the NRA drives ol’ Feinstein to the brink of dementia.
I mentioned this to a gun-loving buddy of mine the other day and he mocked me, saying it’s never going to happen, he’s bought plenty of assault rifles and he’s never had a problem.
But he didn’t remember the last ten year ban either.
It’s coming, this was entirely predictable.
Not that Obamacare went this route, but I seem to recall lots of "ifs, ands, and buts" to reassure us that wasn't going to happen either .... and it DID. By hook or crook ... they'll keep trying to get it done and one of these day, they just might.
Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts, Romney said. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.
When asked by a reporter if he supported the renewal of the federal assault weapons ban and if he had spoken to the senators about it, Governor Romney replied that it was not really his job to lobby on federal legislation, but that he shared Senator Kerrys and Senator Kennedys position on the issue!
The only way this could happen is if the Repub lose control of the HR in 2014. I know there will be some alarm and price gouging before then, but we are probably safe until then. Of course, we must be vigilant that the weepy-one does not cave on this issue before then.
Come and take them.
Added to the banglist.
“By hook or crook ... they’ll keep trying to get it done and one of these day, they just might.”
You are absolutely right. How many other outrageous things have come to pass that sane people have said, “Oh, that’ll never happen.”?
Way too many ... Obamacare being a really horrible example.
That should go on billboards across America.
Yup. Be ready.
Will Americans tolerate some YELLOW in our new flag with a crescent shape too? YES.
And to think, in 1962 Thomas J Dodd and Emaual Cellar proposed the first federal law on common firearms.
1962; “We don’t want to an your firearms, we ONLY want to register handguns! Rifles and shotguns will not be affeCted”.
1964: “We only want to register all your guns, not ban them! Only Army surplus guns will be banned.”
1968: “We only want to register your guns, and ban “Saturday Night Specials” and small foreign handguns along with army surplus rifles!” (They got the ban on 5 shot army surplus rifles and handguns and small foreign pistols)
1970: “We only want to ban Saturday night specials! large handguns and rifles will not be affected!” There was also a call at this time to ban all private possession of ALL GUNS.
1976: “We only want to ban all handguns! Long guns will not be affected!”
1981: “The NRA should give up their handguns, and they can keep their rifles!”- Lee Grant on GMA
1984: “We must ban “assault Rifles, unsuitable or hunting!”
1989: George Bush bans import of foreign made “assault rifles:.
1992: Assault rifle ban passed by Clinton.
2000: first calls to ban single shot .50 cal rifles...
and so it continues.
They lied to us in 1962.
They lied to us in 1964.
TheY lied to us in 1968.
They lied to us in 1970.
They lied to us in 1976.
They lied to us in 1981.
AND THEY ARE LYING TO US NOW!
Once again “Thank you California!”
I hope this bitch dies from a long dibilitating disease. She can rot in hell with the rest of the traitors of this country.
I will weep no tears for ANY of them when they die.
Just got a Saiga 7.62x39 rifle tonight. Very pleased with it.
Assuming this goes nowhere in the House, how can DumBO issue an EO to do the same thing?
“She can rot in hell with the rest of the traitors of this country.”
Hell is going to be a very crowded place.
Come and get it.
Must be full of Dems.
If this becomes law, one of two things will ultimately follow: Open warfare or the Gulag.
I wish this withered cancer-ridden old crone would just fade away.
Anybody else amused at the fact that Feinstein’s finger is on the trigger in the picture?
Are those those Chinese women from Tiananmen Square??
I was told by the MSM that they just got a harsh lecture and were sent home.
Even if they DON'T lose control, to trust the GOP to do what's right and proper is beyond idiocy. Remember, they are all POLITICIANS!
I hope you don’t mind, but I posted that on my Facebook page.
Executive Order. Congress has allowed them to substitute for Congressional legislation. They will.
Executive orders cannot countermand what is already in the US Code. You will not see “law # 300” is repealed by executive order.
If so attempted, we have all we need to impeach. Law is NOT made by the executive branch. War can be apparently.
Push comes to shove, House can refuse to initiate funding for any act created whole cloth.
What might be possible is a obamacare like “deemed to have passed”. In which case there will be armed insurrection fairly certain— for which the executive maoist is trying to develop a federal police force like an occupying army ignoring posse comitatus (since it isn’t the Army really!!).
This is of concern certainly.
If the Democrats could figure out a way to revoke the Constitution through a “budget reconciliation” process, they would. This is exactly how we got unconstitutional Obamacare.
Much more important things are set to eventuate soon. The disassembly of our military and the total abandonment of nuclear weapons will come over the next couple of years. When we have no nukes and little Navy then Russia and/China will make their move. Should Russia nuke the remaining aircraft carrier nd one US Cith as an accompaniment to its demands for "international" occupation and operation of the USA what is a largely disarmed US populace going to do? Oh yes, disarming the civilian population will come soon. The Kenyan has already given the go ahead to the UN ambassador to call for the UN small arms treaty. Some will resist and die. Most privately held arms will be taken. This government is in command of a technology that makes hiding of arms or just about anything else nearly impossible. Occupiers will be in possession of all that, too.

Dems had the House for Obamacare. Boehner may buckle for whatever reason, but there’s no rational reason for a gun ban to pass.
Bull$#I+. Americans will bend over for the Usurper. You included.
So your vote is for Gulag. Noted.
Anyone who waited till now to get an AR, AK etc really needs their head examined.
Waited till now? Really? LOL!!!!!
Should be interesting to see if all the 10 or so states that passed Firearms Freedom Acts (repudiates federal regulation of guns in intrastate trade) really meant it or if it was all for symbolism. A couple of those state laws even provide that it’s a state crime for a federal LEO to attempt to enforce within the state any of the federal laws so repudiated.
Posturing. The bill would have absolutely no chance in the House.
No grandfathering? Sounds unconstitutional when you’re talking about ownership of property.
(little out of my price range though. SKS for me 'soon')
I use to think that about a lot of crazy ideas that have come to pass.
Massive Amnesty is another one that is likely to happen.
Absolutely! Let the libs scream about it. They’ve already convinced everyone that conservatives are evil, even though the Republican establishment does its best to be namby-pamby appeasers, so let’s go for broke! It’s time people were exposed to some unvarnished truth for a change.
Or that her husband is on the board of some defense companies and the two of them make a tidy profit from war? You notice DiFi is not an anti-war liberal; just an anti-2nd Amendment liberal.
