Surprise! Feinstein’s ‘Assualt Weapons’ Ban Grabs Handguns, Shotguns


Now that the bill has been submitted, it’s obvious that calling it an “assault rifle” ban is merely a cover-up for the fact that Feinstein is after practically any defense weapon she thinks she can grab:

Here’s a question: When did handguns and shotguns become “assault rifles”?

They didn’t, but Democrats see this as their big chance to take away as many guns as they can, and they’re not about to pass that chance up.

That this move is as shameless as it is unconstitutional is evident in the fact that the vast majority of the weapons Feinstein seeks to ban were not even used in Sandy Hook, the Clackamas Town Center shooting, or the shooting at the Aurora theater. It is a gun grab, pure and simple.

So apparently SHE should have the right to defend herself, but not us peasants, huh?  Of course, her bill gives exemptions to the ruling class:

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.

Some are more “equal” than others, apparently, when it comes to self-defense.

It absolutely galls me that this woman used to be my senator.  I voted against her every chance I got.

Next, they’re going after ammunition.
