Dianne Feinstein Introduces Gun Control – For Yours, Not Hers
So it begins. Senator Dianne Feinstein has introduced her bill to ban over 150 different types of weapons. I wonder if hers and Chuck Schumer’s handguns are on that list.
She even had a priest open the festivities with a prayer, after which he said “Everyone in this city seems to live in terror of the gun lobby, but I believe that the gun lobby is no match for the cross lobby.”
Lives in terror of the gun lobby? Seriously? Does the gun lobby threaten to shoot everyone up, like the anti-gun crowd has threatened NRA members ever since Newtown?
The weapons ban includes everything that might even look like a “military style assault weapon”, including handguns, some shotguns and high capacity magazines..
“The purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time,” Feinstein revealed, “therefore, there is no sunset on this bill.”
The purpose is to dry up the supply over time, and leave the people unarmed or underarmed, so we can then swoop in unopposed and take everything under government control.
There are those on the left, who don’t own guns who repeatedly say “No one is talking about taking your guns away.”
“If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States, for an outright ban, picking up (every gun) … Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ’em all in. I would have done it…” – Dianne Feinstein
“I think there should be a law – and I know this is extreme – that no one can have a gun in the U.S.” – Rosie O’Donnell
“My view of guns is simple. I hate guns and I cannot imagine why anyone would want to own one. If I had my way, guns for sport would be registered, and all other guns would be banned.” – Deborah Prothrow-Stith (Dean of Harvard School of Public Health)
“I don’t care if you want to hunt, I don’t care if you think it’s your right. I say ‘Sorry.’ it’s 1999. We have had enough as a nation. You are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun I think you should go to prison.” – – Rosie O’Donnell (At about the time she said this, Rosie engaged the services of a bodyguard who applied for a gun permit.)
“If it was up to me, no one but law enforcement officers would own hand guns…” [Former] Chicago Mayor Richard Daley
“No presidential candidate has yet come out for the most effective proposal to check the terror of gunfire: a ban on the general sale, manufacture and ownership of handguns as well as assault-style weapons.” The Washington Post editorial entitled “Guns Along the Campaign Trail”, Monday, July 19, 1999, Page A18.
“I’m convinced that we have to have federal legislation to build on. We’re going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily-given political realities-going to be a very modest. of course, it’s true that politicians will then go home and say, ‘This is a great law. The problem is solved. . . .’ So then we’ll have to start working again to strengthen that law, and then again to strengthen the next law, and maybe again and again. . . . Our ultimate goal-total control of handguns in the United States-is going to take time. My estimate is seven to ten years. The first problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns being produced and sold in this country. The second problem is to get handguns registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition-except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors-totally illegal.” [emphasis on “all” in the original] Pete Shields, “A Reporter At Large: Handguns”, July 26, 1976, 57-58, in the New Yorker magazine. At the time, Mr Shields was the Executive Director of NCCH, which changed its name to Handgun Control, Inc. in 1978.
No one is talking about taking you guns away.
Except for gun control advocates. The government has already put enough chains on all of us. If we allow them to attach this last chain, the great American experiment is over, and we have lost. Not just for ourselves, but our posterity.
