Feinstein Will Introduce Bill
Banning Assault Weapons

National Review Online, by Katrina Trinko

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/16/2012 3:42:17 PM

Democratic California senator Dianne Feinstein announced today that she will be introducing a bill that would ban assault weapons. “He is going to have a bill to lead on,” Feinstein said of President Obama on Meet the Press, “because as a first day bill, I’m going to introduce in the senate and the same bill will be introduced in the house,a bill to ban assault weapons. It will.ban the sale, the transfer, the importation, and the possession –not retroactively, but prospectively. And it will ban the same for big clips, drums, or strips of more than ten bullets.”..

Feinstein should work on her reading skills. Lanza used two handguns for his spree and left the rifle in the car. It was not used in the murders.

Of course, facts don´t matter to liberals, it´s the emotions that are important.

Slightly off topic but why is all of the police talking about tracking the "whole history" of each weapon from manufacture until it´s use in Newtown. They are saying that they want to trace any use of each weapon in any other crimes.
Do they know that they will find evidence of this? Thinga that make you go Hmmmmm.

There has been an escalation in weapons purchases since the kenyan klown was elected and now reelected. Feinstein is demonstrating why that is.
Instead of focusing on guns, she should be focusing on mental health availability, with qualified, trained professionals providing the service, not kids straight out of undergraduate school, with a lack of coursework to support the job of counselor.
She should also be reconsidering the privacy laws that stop parents from being part of their adult child´s treatment.

Posturing. You can´t eliminate the so called assault weapon without eliminating the most popular deer rifles, the Remington Nylon 66, and all pistols and revolvers. Good luck with that.

Go ahead, ban them. It won´t make an ounce of difference. What Feinstein needs to ban is mental illness. Somehow, I doubt she will tackle that problem. Come to think of it, the liberals already tackled that problem and it no longer exists. All those terrible asylmns are gone.

Sure, go ahead and ban them. Law-abiding people will not have them but the drug dealers, crooks, robbers and looters will. Then, the bad guys will continue to just take what they want.

This is such a simple and logical thought. Why don´t liberals and people who shout gun control understand this? The bad guys will have all the power.

Sort of sounds like Zippy and his plans for the US...

Feinstein needs to be banned. No assault weapons were used in the killing. Last I heard the .223 rifle was left in the car. Now, is the story changing to fit their version of events? Is Eric Holder going to be arrested for Fast & Furious which caused hundreds of deaths at least? Is Obama going to be impeached for treason right along with Holder?

The USA is dead. It died Nov. 6th, 2012.

Outright ban? What happened to the ´conversation´ we were supposed to have?

Chicago kills 20 people every two weeks, all year long.

Abortion kills 3,300 EACH DAY.

The family has broken down.

Hollywood continues to make violent movies glorifying violence.

Loners sit in the basement playing violent video games.

Union thugs beat up people that they disagree with. Their leaders threaten the state leaders.

Let´s have that ´conversation´ you hypocrite.

Sorry, #2. You are the one who doesn´t have the facts. The State Police announced YESTERDAY that ALL the killings were done with the assault rifle, not the handguns. Each victim was hit between 3 and 11 times fired from the rifle. All the autopsies proved that. That information was repeated at the press conference today. The only time a handgun was used by the killer was to commit suicide. Try to get the facts before posting criticism of others.

Good point post 10. Here is my two cents. Close to a million illegals sneak across the border every year. If "assault" weapons are banned the demand for those guns could easily be fulfilled by illegals packing guns in with them. Therefore a liberal ban on "assault" weapons would make liberals feel good but the ban may actually multiply the number of such guns in circulation. So in addition to the post 10 suggestion how about attaching an appropriation of $50 billion to close the border. Make liberals prove just how badly they want their gun grab.

Do you know how UNPOPULAR this bill is? Imho, the dems are just introducing it to placate their lefties....because they will have to ban automobiles first before guns because they kill more people than guns. And let´s not forget oxycontin (sp) and other prescribed drugs. How many have been killed from these?

How can Obama really create a police state when we still have an armed citizenry. Its the last step. The good news is where I live they can´t buy ammo fast enough. The above article concerning the ACLU forcing through a ban on forced mental help confinement for violent people will get lost in all this. Wonder how all those hunters in Ohio and Michigan are going to like their President and Senators. Everybody I know has been waiting for this shoe to drop, thought we would get through inauguration first. As Obama ties the Hangman´s noose and grins from ear to ear standby it only gets worse.

House Republicans should tack on mandatory institutionalization of violent mentally ill and "no-buy" database of people receiving psycho-active drugs. Pay for it by eliminating long term unemployment payments to the chronically lazy of all races. The article is typical of democrat logic - ban the symptoms and ignore the root of the problem.

Feinstein should get a law passed saying that crazy people can no longer possess guns. That should get the job done as we all know that crazy people obey all laws.

Crazy people can also vote in the USA, and you can safely bet that the crazy people who do vote support liberal Democrats who certainly have more in common with them then conservative Republicans. That´s why liberal Democrats never blame crazy people for their criminal and irresponsible acts. On the other side of the coin, liberal Democrats always blame guns anytime a mass shooting occurs, of course guns can´t vote, so that is the safe thing for the liberal Democrats to do in the short term.

I am not a gun owner. I have noticed that one factor we have often seen in the most publicized mass killings with guns is a mentally deranged teen or young adult whose parents were unable to get treatment for them. I suspect one of the positive results that could come from a national conversation on gun violence is measures to limit the ability of the mentally ill to have access to guns. There are too many guns in our country for them to be ever removed, we could however change the way we treat violent young people.

Look, California is a state whose legislature and moron Governator banned the .50 cal bolt action due to fears that it could "shoot down an airliner". Given idiocy on that level, the definition of "assault rifle" can be expanded to include a slingshot.

BTW, Barrett got around the ban with the .416. Our lawmakers are fascist, but very very stupid.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco.

Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
