Folks, here they come, to heck with the 2nd amendment, it’s in the way as far as they are concerned…
Despite what Feinstein claims, the Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice brief done in 1999, midway through the period of the original assault weapons ban found, “The ban has failed to reduce the average number of victims per gun murder incident or multiple gunshot wound victims.” In 2003, the Centers for Disease Control studied multiple gun control laws including the AWB and found, “insufficient evidence to determine the effectiveness of any of the firearms laws reviewed for preventing violence.” Likewise, a National Research Council panel in 2004 performed a critical review on firearms, and noted that the ban “did not reveal any clear impacts on gun violence”.
The reason the AWB had little, if any effect on gun violence was revealed in a 2004 National Institute of Justice report which found that rifles were rarely used in gun crimes. This finding is verified by the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Reports database which shows that of the 8,583 murders committed using firearms in 2011; only 323 were committed using rifles of any kind, including the small fraction referred to as “assault weapons”. To put this into context, the same 2011 data show that over twice as many murders, 723 in all, were committed using bare hands and feet.
Feinstein tells us a gun ban is about saving the children and reducing crime, but her comments on 60 Minutes in 1995 reveal her true plan is to disarm the American people.
On Thursday, Feinstein will introduced her dream bill to disarm the American people. The legislation is open-ended and includes provisions to re-register firearms and submit the fingerprints of law-abiding Americans as if they’re sex offenders.
Feinstein’s bill will also include a buy-back provision that will allow the government to confiscate all firearms. Both Feinstein and New York governor Andrew Cuomo have said that is their plan.
It is a gun confiscation bill.
Somebody should ask her what she’s proposing to keep guns out of the hands of the bad guys. Including those coming in from across the border. This sceme is meant to disarm us law abiding citizen’s and will do nothing to address the problem
I have news for Ms. Feinstein ….a 51% vote in the Senate won’t ban the 2nd amendment……you MUST add an amendment to the Constitution and have 3/4 of the States to ratifiy that amendment.
Joe Biden shows the length Democrats will go to steal our guns. In 2008 during the election, he told voters Obama wouldn’t take his shotgun or his Beretta. The Beretta is a semi-automatic pistol. But in 1989, Biden introduced his own version of the assault weapons ban.
