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.

Senator Dianne Feinstein,
I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
We, the people, deserve better than you.

Most of us knew their true intentions. Just like Hitler, Democrats know an armed society stands in their way of installing a progressive dictatorship.
From Dianne Feinstein:
Summary of 2013 legislation
Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:
- Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
- 120 specifically-named firearms;
- Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one or more military characteristics; and
- Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.
- Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
- Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test;
- Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test; and
- Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans.
- Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
- Protects legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
- Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment;
- Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes; and
- Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons.
- Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
- Background check of owner and any transferee;
- Type and serial number of the firearm;
- Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
- Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
- Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration.
A pdf of the bill summary is available here.
Asking for ID is racist or is that just when society wants to protect our elections from fraud? Feinstein is your typical hypocrite. She is protected by armed guards carrying “assault weapons” but doesn’t want the average citizen to be protected with the same firepower. All lefty dictators are smiling up from hell and upon gun-grabbing liberals. Those who don’t know history are bound to repeat it.

A member of Hitler’s army
Liberal dipshit Dianne Feinstein is calling for law-abiding citizens who own semi-automatic rifles to be forced to register their firearms under the National Firearms Act ($200 TAX on each firearm sold/transferred) because she is a know-nothing liberal gun control fanatic (except when it’s to protect her liberal ass). At the 40 second mark in this video (unable to embedded) Feinstein blatantly lies by stating:
“SINCE THERE ARE NOW DEVICES TO LEGALLY MAKE THEM AUTOMATIC, IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IT IS PRUDENT TO PLACE THEM UNDER THE FEDERAL FIREARMS ACT.”
It is ILLEGAL to own automatic weapons (unless you go through registration with BATF and obtain a Federal Firearms License) and ILLEGAL to turn them into automatics through machining. For those who don’t know the difference between an automatic-fire weapon and a semi-automatic, let me explain. An automatic sprays bullets and continues to fire until the bullets run out. A semi-automatic fires a single bullet with each squeeze of the trigger. All hunting/target shooting/self-defense rifles used in the US are semi-automatic.
The Gun Control Act of 1986 (Firearm Owners Protection Act) does not allowed citizens to posses fully automatic weapons unless they were manufactured prior to 1986. The weapons manufactured before 1986 are “Grandfathered” meaning they can still be LEGALLY transferred through a licensed/bonded Class III NFA Weapons Dealer. NO fully automatic weapons made after 1968 are legal for civilians to own or possess. (Translation: without government approval a private citizen can’t own an automatic “machine gun”)
Liberals want the groupthinkers to believe these weapons, simply because they look like military-style weapons, are machine guns. None of the guns used in any US school massacres were fully-automatics (machine guns are liberals call them). All handguns and rifles in law-abiding citizens hands are semi-automatic and liberals are attempting to blur the lines. Some are already calling for the confiscation of semi-automatics so those will be next on the list.
Gun control fanatics, from Hitler to Mao to Stalin, all used lies and propaganda to confiscate guns. The current crop of liberal gun grabbers are doing the same things.

Gun buy-back = confiscation and the taxpayers will be forced to pay for it.
From Beltway Confidential:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that she and other gun control advocates are considering a law that would create a program to purchase weapons from gun owners, a proposal that could be compulsory.
“We are also looking at a buy-back program,” Feinstein said today in a press conference. “Now, again, this is a work in progress so these are ideas in the development.”
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., already discussed the possibility of a buy-back law for his state, but he made clear it would be a forced buyback.
“Confiscation could be an option,” Cuomo told The New York Timesyesterday when discussing semiautomatic weapons. “Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”
[…]Some liberal activists want the policy imitated here. “That would be like destroying 50 million guns in America today,” the Center for American Progress’ Matt Miller wrote after noting that Australia eliminated 20 percent of the weapons in the country. “The Australian ‘outlaw and repurchase’ option is one approach. But if Congress balks at banning certain weapons entirely, it could make gun owners an offer they can’t refuse. Instead of $200 a gun, Uncle Sam might offer $500.”
CAP is funded by new world order felon, George Soros, an Obama donor. What CAP fails to mention is how violent crime skyrocketed in Australia after their gun confiscation scheme. The same thing happened in the UK. Liberal idiots want to disarm Americans to install a dictatorship. Plain and simple.

It never fails. Every time there is a mass shooting, liberals run to the cameras screaming for more gun control laws. Sen. Dianne Feinstein is one of those hypocrites. She enjoys armed protection being a US Senator. Guys with guns are always around protecting her. It also should be noted that back in the 70’s, Feinstein was a concealed weapon carrier.
“I know the sense of helplessness that people feel. I know the urge to arm yourself because that’s what I did. I was trained in firearms. I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon and I made the determination if somebody was going to try and take me out, I was going to take them with me.”
Wow, how times have changed. Feinstein isn’t the only hypocrite. Most liberal politicians are and most enjoy the protection of armed police officers, security guards and bodyguards. Their protection can’t be compromised but the average citizen’s can. Look at anti-2nd Amendment nut, NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He has around the clock armed protection as he pushing anti-gun legislation. Guns that protect him are good. Guns that protect citizens who can’t afford armed bodyguards are bad.
Harry Reid is another hypocrite who screams about more gun restrictions but Reid bragged about carry a gun all the time.
“We hear a lot about guns and self-defense and that’s good, I understand that. I was a police officer where I carried a gun and as some of you know during my time being Chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission, I had a lot of bad people after me and I carried a gun every place I went. So I know what a gun and self-defense is.”
But the biggest hypocrite is President Obama. Again he is protected by armed Secret Service agents twenty-four hours a day, seven days a weeks and will continue to be protected by armed agents until his death. As a Illinois Senator, Obama showed his true colors and pushed for gun control. As president, Obama didn’t do much or call for gun control in his first term. However, now that he doesn’t have to worry about voter’s wrath, Obama is calling for gun control and gun bans.
This is the same hypocrite whose administration has allowed the illegal trafficking of high-power firearms into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. He wants weak-minded Americans to believe that more laws will stop the flow of firearms into the hands of criminals and the mentally ill, yet his ATF can’t stop these weapons from crossing the border because they are allowing it.
