Why, Thank You Satan: Dianne Frankenstein- “We’ve tried to recognize legal hunting rights.”

Screen Shot 2013-01-25 at 9.04.18 AMSen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) laid out the conditions of her proposed assault weapons ban Thursday, saying it would prohibit 158 specifically named military-style firearms.

“The purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time,” Feinstein said. “Therefore, there is no sunset on this bill.”

Feinstein said the bill prohibits the sale, transfer, manufacture and importation of assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices that can accept more than ten rounds, but said it would not affect hunting or sporting firearms.

“Instead, the bill protects hunters and sportsmen by protecting 2,200 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes,” she said. “They are by make and model exempted from the legislation … Finally, the bill subjects existing or grandfathered weapons to a background check in the event the weapon is sold or transferred … We have tried to recognize legal hunting rights. We have tried to recognize legal defense rights. We have tried to recognize the right of a citizen to legally possess a weapon. No weapon is taken from anyone.”

    The vast majority of those 2200 “recognized” guns would not be affected by DiFi’s new ban anyway. They are bolt-action rifles, lever actions, pump actions and break open guns. Those 2200 are red-herrings to show that “See? You can still by all these wonderful guns!” Yes, the ones that will mostly be outclassed by military arms in the hands of police and soldiers called to re-create another Waco — in a town near you.

    To paraphrase TV’s Judge Judy…Feinstein is peeing on our legs, and trying to convince us it’s raining!

    Let me see now:

    A gun control law that doesn’t take any weapons away.

    What was it that Reagan said?

    Trust me i am from the government and i am here to help you.

    Was that it?

    It is time that we banned Feinstein from our government.

    The short sighted vision of this attempt to disarm law abiding citizens is the foolishness of never considering we might need civilian backup in case of a foreign invasion. They thought like this before 911 Now they are returning to the complacency of yesteryear. The irony is it is their posh positions they are endangering.

    She actually took my deer rifle and my daughter deer rifle away…we actually used AR’s, one in .308 and the other in 7mm-08….did I mention I live in NY too! Ugh! The only good side, I think this is waking us lazy Americans up to get off our duffs and DO something! It’s gonna get uglier than Frankenstein, Dianne that is…
