Senator Feinstein´s All-Out
Assault On Gun Rights

Forbes, by Larry Bell

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/8/2013 5:40:46 AM

Capitalizing upon the tragedy that savagely took the lives of 20 children and 7 others in Newtown, Connecticut, Senator Feinstein is introducing a gun ban bill which has been in the works for over a year which represents a direct assault upon Second Amendment rights. According to a December 27th posting on her website and a draft bill obtained by the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, the legislation would define “assault weapons” to comprise a much larger variety of firearms than ever before, require current owners of those included to register them with the Federal Government

Good article but a few factual errors. It IS legal for civilians to own machine guns if registered (and approved) with the ATF and a $200 transfer fee (tax stamp) is paid. The 1986 Firearms Owners Protection Act (FOPA) simply banned transfer and ownership of those registered or made after May 19, 1986... Of course that made the supply very limited and the price very high.

I will not surrender or register my weapons.

End of discussion.

This ban if enacted would stop the production and sale of most modern firearms in the USA. A result of that would wipe out most of the US small arms industry along with the related industries that supply all sorts of firearms related accessories and supplies along with the many thousands of well paid American jobs that now exist in those industries. Of course the liberal Democrats could care less about all that, because those industries are considered to be a big conservative Republican constituency group.

´Here, obfuscation of facts is a primary strategy, conflating a common misconception of popular semi-automatic “assault weapons” with automatic “machine guns” which have been illegal for domestic sale since 1986...´

[BTW, #1, although you are correct about simply needing a tax stamp for an NFA firearm, in practice no new tax stamps are being issued.]

I´m sure millions of gun owners are going to line up to tell the federal government what and how many guns they have so FEMA troops can raid their houses.

If you´re a lucky gun owner,you might get a crack at re education to learn the errors of your ways.

Of course it never crosses their minds that gun owners are also the backbone of the economy.

feinstein occasionally poses as a moderate, but almost invariably walks back or qualifies her reasonable sounding pronouncements. In other words she specializes in publicity stunts that enable her supporters and her to say she is a fair minded non-partisan. The truth is, contrary to beliefs by some on this site, feinstein very rarely "gets it right." feinstein is a far left elitist hypocrite.

There´s a petition on the WH site to impeach her for attacking the US constitution, and our constitutional right to bear arms. If you care, sign it.

#1, as alluded to by #4, they can´t ban the machineguns (or any arms) and they know it. What they did was decide they would no longer accept the tax and registration on any machineguns manufactured after May of 1986. That´s why they lost the two court cases in the 7th and 10th circuits (in the early 90s) when they sought to prosecute two guys for failure to register. Basically the appeals courts said you can´t prosecute for failure to do something you no longer accept (register and pay the tax). That´s over-simplified but gets to the heart of both cases. The DOJ appealed to the USSC for about 12 days and then with-drew their appeal when they realized the basis for the decision at the appeals court level was such the USSC would agrer and then the decision would become law all over the land, not just in those two circuit court regions.
Needless to say, the LSM was very, very quiet about these decisions back then.

Although, at one time, I held the opinion that Diane Feinstein was one of the few liberals in congress who had a modicum of common sense in her cranium, her actions in the era of Obama are causing me to doubt that opinion more each passing day.

Her demeanor of late continues to give credence to the (wont go away) rumors that something nefarious is going on with the esteemed lady and her erratic behavior is because of skeletons in her closet of which Obama has knowledge and some control over.

Sen. "Fine Stein" has not lived up to that nom de plume - Sen. "Good Mug" might be more fitting, except that the passage of time has chipped away at that too.

"With onion peeling tears - more numerous,
Comes awareness, anything but humorous."

The fairest explainer I’ve found on the Bundy saga is Becket Adams’s post at TheBlaze. If, like me (and Ace), you came to this story after it had already been hyper-polarized and weren’t sure whose facts to trust, try Adams’s Q&A. He plays it straight. In one sense this is complicated — land ownership, grazing rights dating back decades, a court battle, the feds tasing a Bundy family member, even a Harry Reid cameo — but after listening to this Glenn Beck interview with Bundy, it seems surprisingly simple. Bundy stopped paying the BLM in 1993 for grazing rights on

Antiquated law adds billions to fuel costs

An obscure 1920 law is costing Americans billions of dollars a year in higher fuel costs. The Jones Act requires that cargo shipped from one US port to another be carried on a US-registered vessel, built, owned and crewed by Americans. This protectionist law was designed to support a shipbuilding industry that no longer exists — but inertia and labor-union muscle keep it on the books. The law mainly makes the news in time of crisis. It delayed shipment of road salt to New Jersey during a shortage last winter — happily, without incident, as the weather moderated before the Garden State

Ukraine and the Obama doctrine: Our president´s
puzzling "go to war or ignore" philosophy

The continuation of Putin’s push into Ukraine makes it official. The Obama Doctrine is to ignore an international crisis or go to war. There is no in between. And President Obama’s been clear that he isn’t going to start any new wars. The recent bipartisan push by Congress to help Ukraine, however, was the latest signal that the president´s foreign policy is unraveling and his doctrine of ‘war or ignore’ is making America less safe. The bill had a huge majority in Congress (378-84 in the House, 98-2 in the Senate) pushing back against a slow and disinterested White House.

People With Old Social

WASHINGTON -- People with old Social Security debts are getting a reprieve - for now. The Social Security Administration had been participating in a program in which thousands of people were having their tax refunds seized to recoup overpayments that happened more than a decade ago. On Monday, Acting Social Security Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin said she was suspending the program while the agency conducts a review. Social Security recipients and members of Congress complained that people were being forced to repay overpayments that were sometimes paid to their parents or guardians when they were children.




State GOP gets to vote
on secession at convention

To secede or not to secede. That will be the question for Wisconsin Republicans at next month´s convention. Earlier this month, the party´s Resolutions Committee voted in favor of a proposal that says the state party "supports legislation that upholds Wisconsin´s right, under extreme circumstances, to secede." A version of the so-called "state sovereignty" resolution was first OK´d last month by one of the state GOP´s eight regional caucuses as an assertion of the state´s 10th Amendment rights. The measure also calls for ending all mandates that go "beyond the scope of the constitutionally delegated powers of the federal government."

Cliven Bundy supporters were planning to put women on the front lines in case the federal officers started shooting, Former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack said Monday on Fox News’ “The Real Story.” “We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front,” he said. “If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.” Mack and other organizers, reportedly armed, traveled to Nevada to support Bundy during his dispute with the Bureau of Land Management, which had seized hundreds of

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
