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.

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.

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.

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

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

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth.

In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

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

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

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)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

As I sit writing from Berlin, Germany—I woke up this morning with the news that a demented American Nazi and KKK leader, Glenn Miller, has been arrested as the main suspect in the Kansas City murder of 3 American Jews. (Snip) Fortunately, a quick look at some of the anti-Semitic extremist websites has led to the following post by Mr. Miller, reproduced verbatim below: Israel Forming Super PAC to Attack Paul & Obama This is some big dookee, yaw’ll. http://runronpaul.com/interviews/isr…on-paul-obama/ Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican
