Just remember, these are Democrats who see no link to the Fast & Furious guns and the Obama regime and no links to the Benghazi cover-up. Instead, they want to come after our guns due to a mentally unstable lunatic, who broke several laws, going on a killing spree. If Paul Revere were alive he would be shouting “the gun grabbers are coming” and they are.
(CNSNews.con) – Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) says she will introduce a gun-control bill on the first day of the next Congress: “It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession — not retroactively, but prospectively –” of “assault weapons” as well as high-capacity magazines.
And Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said he will hold a hearing in two weeks on “this constitutional question,” a reference to the Second Amendment. “That’s the starting point,” he said.
Feinstein, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” was asked if President Obama, by not pressing for reinstatement of the “assault weapons” ban, has failed to lead.
“I’m not going to comment on that,” Feinstein told NBC’s David Gregory. “I can tell you he is going have a bill to lead on, because it’s 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 10 bullets.
Will this ban affect our law enforcement agencies as well?
“So there will be a bill. We’ve been working on it now for a year. We’ve tried to take my bill from 1994 to 2004 and perfect it. We believe we have. We exempt over 900 specific weapons that will not be — fall under the bill, but the purpose of this bill is to get just what Mayor Bloomberg said, weapons of war, off the streets of our city.”
What about schools hiring armed guards?
“Well, is this the way we want America to go?” Feinstein asked. “In other words, the rights of the few overcome the safety of the majority. I don’t think so. I think America is ready. They’re going to have an opportunity with this bill. I’m going to ask and spend my time and create a committee across this nation to support it.”
Feinstein has no problems with her armed security detail. Fucking liberal hypocrite.
Other Democrats appearing on various Sunday talks also endorsed gun control as part of a “national conversation” about school safety.
“But gun control is part of it,” Sen. Dick Durbin told “Fox News Sunday.” “We need to sit down and have a quiet, calm reflection on the Second Amendment. Are there guns that really shouldn’t be sold across America? Military assault weapons such as the one involved in this horrific incident in Connecticut?
“Are there high ammunition clips, high capacity ammunition clips that have no value, whatsoever when it comes to sporting and hunting and even self-defense? The person could buy body armor, take that body armor and use it to protect themselves as they kill innocent people.
“Can we have a thoughtful, calm, reflection on these things? And do it in the context of our Second Amendment? I think we need to.”
