Dems Introduce Gun-Ban Bill as GOP
Seeks to Expand Gun-Carry Protections

Washington Free Beacon, by Stephen Gutowski

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/11/2019 7:02:13 AM

Democrats and Republicans introduced dueling gun proposals this week in the Senate with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) pushing a new gun-ban proposal and Sen. John Cornyn (R., Tex.) attempting to expand gun-carry protections across the country. Feinstein´s bill, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019, would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer, and importation of certain semiautomatic firearms. The text of the bill has not yet been released, but Feinstein´s office said it would ban any firearm capable of accepting a detachable magazine and either a "pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a

All firearms, with the exception of some bullpup designs, are capable of accepting a forward grip. All are capable of accepting a barrel shroud. Is every adjustable stock a ´telescoping´ stock? I suspect that is the case.

The intended result is only government and criminals (essentially redundant, I know) being armed so we can take our proper place as docile wage and tax slaves.

FTA: "Last year we saw tens of thousands of students nationwide take to the streets to demand action to stop mass shootings "

Students are determining US policy?

BTW: Haven´t we already tried a 10 year ban on so-called assault rifles?

Does anyone think Dianne Feinstein knows what she just proposed with all those big evil sounding words in her bill? BTW what´s an ´assault pistol´? If it is a pistol with a detachable magazine then that´s plenty handguns out there.
Trust me, Feinstein and dems intend to disarm the entire public. Remember the hypocrite Dianne Feinstein purchased and started carrying a handgun after Harvey Milk was killed in city hall, she admitted she purchased it and carried it perhaps without a permit.

Gun laws passed by liberals get overturned in court again and again, but they just keep coming back, hoping their next legislation will somehow "stick."
That definition about insanity as, "Doing the same thing over and over, always hoping for a different outcome," fits libertards in their never ending quest for gun abolishment.

Our nation was founded on GUNS, live with it!

This is not a gun control bill, it is a modern firearm ban bill, as if it is inacted will ban just about every modern rifle and most shotguns manufactured and sold in the USA. You can bet your boots that another such bill will be introduced to ban semi-automatic pistols. The leftist and liberal Democrats have now layed their true firearms ban agenda on the table.

If such a ban is enacted it will also destroy much of the modern firearms and wide ranging related industries throughout the USA, putting large numbers of American workers out of their jobs. The Democrats could care less about that, as those industries are considered to be conservative oriented entities.

One thing the gun-grabbers don´t want anyone to know:

The average colonist farmer/hunter (for food) had a weapon more accurate and lethal than the weapon that was issued to a British soldier.

#12, true, BUT....

Muskets were the assault weapons of the day.

The civilian rifles were very slow to reload, requiring a wet patch wiping the inside of the barrel, then two dry patches, or one in an emergency. In an emergency, two shots could possibly be fired before wiping, but the black powder residue can prevent the tightly cloth patched round lead ball from being fully seated on the powder. If the ball was not directly in contact with the powder charge, the firing pressures skyrocket, and can blow up the gun.

So, for fast loading, many, many times in a day, without swabbing the bore, the only solution was the loosely fitted musket, with premeasured paper cartridges. Since the bullet (ball) was a loose fit, the fouling didn´t cause a problem, but there was no benefit to rifling (to spin the ball and increase accuracy) since the bullet wouldn´t fit tight enough to grip the rifling - so muskets were smooth bored, no rifling groove, no spin, 50% chance of hitting a standing man at 50 paces. No rear sights, no point.

And the muskets had a huge bayonet on the front, a very, very serious weapon in that day of maximum 3 shots per minute from a musket, maybe 1 shot per two minutes from a rifle, and often not that fast. If caught while reloading your rifle (no provision for bayonet) by a bayonet charging Brit, run or die. Bayonets need no reloading.

Accuracy with very slow reloading (rifle) vs three shots per minute rapid fire all day (musket). That is why the musket was used in the military, and why we hid behind trees and fences while sniping the Brits on their way back from Concord. Riflemen could not stand and fight against musket and bayonets. Quickly we got muskets and had "regulars".

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin fretted Friday that many Americans would dismiss the news media as a "bunch of leftist liars" in the wake of the BuzzFeed News story called "not accurate" by special counsel Robert Mueller´s office. BuzzFeed set off a Washington firestorm on Thursday with its report that President Donald Trump had directed longtime lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. However, on Friday night, a spokesman for Mueller´s office said the report was "not accurate."

Giving Pelosi a Taste of

Oh, boy. The look on Representative Adam Schiff’s face was priceless as the California Democrat disembarked the Air Force bus on Thursday. A few days ago, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) sent a letter to the White House, practically disinviting the president of the United States from giving his State of the Union Address on January 29. She cited security concerns and suggested that the president reschedule his address for a time after the government shutdown. But everyone knew that her explanation was absolute nonsense.

It’s a good thing President Trump canceled the Democrats’ overseas excursion this weekend because Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has some work to do here at home. For starters, he needs to take a red pen to his memo that defended the deceptive tactics used by the FBI to obtain a FISA warrant on Trump campaign aide Carter Page days before the 2016 presidential election. The new chairman of the House Intelligence Committee authored a memo dated January 28, 2018, ironically titled, “Correcting the Record—The Russia Investigation.” But it is Schiff who needs to correct his own record in

The pedant seeks error, not truth, and delights to find it. Indeed, the search for error may be the entire purpose of his reading, to judge from certain books dating from the 19th century in my possession. In them, the sole mark made by a previous reader is the emphatic underlining, often accompanied in the margin by an explanation mark or some other expression of joyful discovery, of an error, whether of printing or grammar or fact, and of whatever magnitude. The intellectual or moral significance of the error is quite beside the point;

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.” “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay,

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) looked defeated Friday afternoon when reporters confronted her over her outrageous claims Trump endangered her life by cancelling her military flight then allegedly leaked her commercial travel plans. Earlier Friday morning, Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill accused President Trump of endangering Pelosi’s life by leaking her commercial travel plans. Nancy Pelosi doubled down on those claims when confronted by reporters. “We had the prerogative to travel commercially, and we made plans to do that, until the administration then leaked that we were traveling commercially,” Pelosi told a gaggle of reporters.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies. The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We
