Posts Tagged ‘assault weapons ban’

How do you piss off a Democrat? Ask them a question about their constitutional knowledge or tell them the truth.

I love how Diane Feinstein, a career politician, claims she’s not a “6th grader” and then answers Sen. Cruz’s question with her list of career positions. Senate Democrats refused to answer the question and started fuming because they know the 2nd Amendment was put into place to stop the tyranny they want to accomplish.

Like our president, the lying hag then falsely claims that semi-automatic rifles (scary looking rifles that only shoot one bullet with each trigger squeeze) are used in the theater of war. The military does not use semi-automatic rifles in war. If they did they would lose every war. Automatic rifles with select-fire capabilities are used by our military personal. The only semi-automatic they carry is their sidearms, which is usually a handgun.

Democrats don’t know the US Constitution, weapons or anything about our military.

Democrats continue to prove their disdain for the 2nd Amendment and the US Constitution. Banning scary, military-looking weapons will not reduce the murder-rate in gun control crazy liberal cities like Chicago. A gun is a useless tool without an operator.

From WaPo:

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bill banning almost 160 specific military-style assault weapons Thursday after a heated exchange between senators about the scope of the Second Amendment.

The Democratic-controlled panel approved the bill on a party-line vote of 10 to eight — all Democrats voted yes, all Republicans voted no.

In the past week the committee has approved four Democratic-backed proposals to limit gun violence in America, all introduced in the wake of the mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn. that left 20 elementary school children dead — and occurred three months ago Thursday.

Debate over gun control now shifts to the Senate, where the chamber’s divide between liberal, urban-state Democrats and Republicans and moderate Democrats weary of infringing on the rights of gun owners makes passage of the four proposals more difficult.

Sometimes, liberals who enjoy hearing their own voices, let the truth slip out.

Semiautomatic rifles, with cosmetic accessories, scare left-wing no-nothings who are not educated on guns. Hypocrites, like Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif) , love to protect themselves with armed security and even with personal weapons (see Feinstein’s concealed carry permit) but do not want law-abiding citizens to be able to easily protect themselves from violent liberal criminals (they tend to be very liberal with laws). Sen. Ted Cruz destroys the entire myth being push by left-wing progressives who hate the US Constitution (how many Democrats are calling for unconstitutional actions?) and want to make it harder for law-abiding citizens to get a firearm while ignoring the criminals that disobey gun laws.

These guns are awesome when they protect the elite members of Congress

These guns are awesome when they protect the elite members of Congress

“Assault weapons” are only bad to liberals when they’re not used to protect them.

From Weekly Standard:

Not everyone will have to abide by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s gun control bill. If the proposed legislation becomes law, government officials and others will be exempt.

“Mrs. Feinstein’s measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel,” the Washington Times reports.

The Huffington Post confirms these exemptions, and adds that guns owned prior to the legislation becoming law will be permissible, too. “[T]he bill includes a number of exemptions: It exempts more than 2,200 hunting and sporting weapons; any gun manually operated by a bolt, pump, lever or slide action; any weapons used by government officials and law enforcement; and any weapons legally owned as of the date of the bill’s enactment.”

Liberal gun-grabbers forget the key part of the 2nd amendment: “Shall not be infringed.”

Military-style semiautomatics look scary to liberals. They are after not just rifles but also have shotguns and pistols on their list as well.

WASHINGTON (CBS / AP) — Connecticut’s two U.S. senators are joining forces with California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and other key senators, proposing a retooled federal ban on assault weapons in the wake of the deadly Newtown school shooting.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the proposed legislation, to be unveiled Thursday in Washington, D.C., will more narrowly define what’s considered an assault weapon under a resurrected ban. The bill, he said, will also prohibit high-capacity magazines, limiting them to a capacity of up to nine rounds of ammunition.

Blumenthal said the legislation is “one of the most significant” bills to be introduced following the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It also marks the first bill that Blumenthal and Sen. Chris Murphy have worked on together as senators.

[...]Blumenthal said the bill defines rapid fire assault weapons in terms of a single feature, such as having a pistol grip or a flash suppressor. Connecticut’s ban defines the weapons in terms of having two features.

All semiautomatics can be fired rapidly and all pistols have pistol grips. Idiot liberal gun-grabbers believe banning accessories will  stop criminals from committing crime.

History repeating itself!!!

History repeating itself!!!

Hitler spoke about using children for propaganda. Guess Obama read Mein Kampf and loves that tactic.

From The Hill:

President Obama called Wednesday for Congress to approve new bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips in response to a string of deadly mass shootings.

“If there is even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if even one life can be saved, we have an obligation to try,” Obama said.

At a White House event where Obama was flanked by children who had written letters of sympathy to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, the president unveiled an expansive plan that includes legislation and 23 “executive actions” the White House said could be put into place immediately.

Obama asked Congress to reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban and to impose a 10-round limit on ammunition magazines. He also called on Congress to require criminal background checks for all gun sales.

Weapons designed for the theater of war have no place in a movie theater,” Obama said. “A majority of Americans agree with us on this.”

Americans do not have “weapons designed for the theater of war.” The rifles used in these killings are semiautomatic. Weapons designed for our military are automatics that fire unlimited bullets for as long as the trigger is pulled. This is the propaganda the left use to lie to the low-information voters.

The president also asked Congress to approve a law against so-called “straw purchasing” of guns, toughen gun trafficking laws, and authorize new funding for gun violence research, mental health efforts, and a program that would place mental health counselors and police officers in schools. 

To bad he didn’t do this in 2009 during the Fast & Furious operation where his administration allow straw purchases to smuggle thousands of “assault weapons” to the Mexican drug cartels. 3000 plus innocent Mexican citizens would still be alive. Shhh, the media doesn’t want these facts to get out. Also, it looks like Obama agrees with Bill Clinton and the NRA by calling for armed protection for children.

In total, the White House estimates that the president’s requests would total “in the neighborhood” of $500 million in the coming fiscal year.

Deficit just jumped another $500 million.

The extensive proposals do not include any calls for restrictions on video games or violent films, which some have argued are a contributing factor, although the White House did designate some federal dollars for the study of violence in media.

Come on now. Obama can’t hurt an industry that overwhelmingly donated to get him elected.

It’s all about the propaganda. Left-wing dictators have done this for centuries.

From CBS News:

Just over a month after forming a task force aimed at reducing gun violence, President Obama will formally announce a “package of concrete proposals” for doing so tomorrow, the White House announced today.

Number of “task force” aimed at reducing the Obama administration’s gun sales to Mexican drug cartels: ZERO!

In a White House press briefing today, spokesman Jay Carney declined to outline exactly what Mr. Obama’s plan would entail, but noted that it would reflect the president’s desire for a “comprehensive approach,” as well as specific legislative actions he has called on before — including reinstating the assault weapons ban, a ban on high-capacity magazine clips, and expanded background checks for gun owners.

“The president certainly hopes that out of the tragedy of Newtown we can achieve progress towards reducing gun violence in this country,” Carney said. “He believes that we can no longer stand by without taking action…Achieving some of the goals that he has already set might be difficult. Because they’re difficult does not mean they should not be pursued.”

Mr. Obama will also lay out executive orders related to data collection on firearms and overall gun violence, according to CBS News Chief White House correspondent Major Garrett.

At least three pro-gun control groups will attend the announcement, which will take place at 11:45 a.m. ET. Among those in the audience will be children who wrote to the president after school shootings.

It’s OK, the Dear Leader will just use executive orders to bypass Congress to push his gun confiscating agenda. Typical of leftwing wanna-be dictators.

From TPM:

The Democratically-controlled U.S. Senate will not be a free-for-all of new gun regulations following the shooting at Sandy Hook, according to Majority Leader Harry Reid. Instead, Senators will focus on passing legislation that can move through the Republican-controlled House, Reid said.

That could spell doom for an assault weapons ban. Speaking on Nevada Week In Review, a news show on the PBS affiliate in Las Vegas, Reid said there’s no real chance of a new ban passing the House.

“Is it something that can pass the Senate? Maybe. Is it something that can pass the House? I doubt it,” he said in video of the program provided to TPM by Vegas PBS. “So I think there are things that we know we can do.”

The National Rifle Association has praised Reid in the past for his opposition to the assault weapons ban, as well as his support for other legislation favored by the gun lobby.

Can’t let a crisis go to waste~Rahm Emanuel (one of Obama’s puppet masters)

From The Hill:

President Obama on Sunday said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013.

Obama supports Sen. Dianne Feinstein “Assault Weapons Ban” that includes banning certain shotguns, rifles and handguns.

“I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it,” Obama said in an interview aired on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”

[...]Obama on Sunday repeated those calls and said he would meet with lawmakers on both sides of the aisles to see action.

“I’ve been very clear that an assault-rifle ban, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, that there are a set of issues that I have historically supported and will continue to support,” the president said.

Except for the ones he sold to the Mexican drug cartels during Fast & Furious or the arms he sold to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood or to al-Qaeda linked Libyan rebels.

“I’d like to get it done in the first year.  I will put forward a very specific proposal based on the recommendations that Joe Biden’s task force is putting together as we speak. And so this is not something that I will be putting off.”

How many jobs will this create? ZERO. How about cutting your deficits this year?
