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.

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s
ban on racial preferences
in university admissions
Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/22/2014 10:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

Court rules Obama administration
must justify targeted killings

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio.

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

"A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now.

Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate.

Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey.

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.
