Democrats Seek the Holy Grail
of Gun Control

Powerline, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Ruhn, 12/27/2012 12:37:13 PM

Dianne Feinstein has announced that she will introduce sweeping gun control legislation in the Senate. Under her bill, countless standard handguns apparently would now be banned, and for the first time a federal register that may include many millions of gun owners, fingerprinted and photographed, would be created. (snip) There is a great deal to be said about this, and much that is still not known, such as the identification of the 120 firearms that are to be specifically banned, or the 900 that are to be exempted.

If We, the People sit on our hands and allow this ban to take place a dictatorship is all but assured! The Democrats think that the wind is at their backs on this issue due to the CT tragedy! We have to push back with all of our might or we will become subjects is a socialist state and at the mercy of those that will prey on us! I, for one say over my dead body!

Feinstein wants to let you keep the ´grandfathered´ guns, but....she wants you registered, fingerprinted, and photographed if you do! Smile for the camera! You can wipe the ink off your fingers on that towel!

My gut feeling is that they will ram this through like Obamacare. It will be over 1,000 pages long, be named "The Omnibus Citizen Protection and Gun Safety Bill", and the Supreme Court will eventually declare it valid.

Sickening.

Not sure if such a ban would pass constitutional muster because the Heller decision stated that handguns in "common usage" could not be banned. Of course such a challenge would take years to sort out, and after Obamacare, who the heck can predict how the SCOTUS will rule?

Registration and confiscation schemes did not go well in Feinstein´s home state of CA. Local LE types weren´t about to go door-to-door, and if they did lawyers were circling like vultures waiting to take the state/local entities to court. They were even taking out ads in the fishwraps on advising gun owners how to proceed if, and big if, LE should show up at the front door. This is a lot of bluster for a lady who carries concealed.

We need to ask: How will your local police respond? Are they on the side of the Bill of Rights, or are they on the side of a ´want a be dictator´ who has been pumping money into their ´war chests´ for the last four years?
Our county police dept. has purchased several military type vehicles and several Barrett .50 cal rifles and other goodies all thanks to Obummer´s stimulis bill. Who do they plan to use these on! It sure isn´t the radical muslims!

#9 asks a very good question. There are many police officers who really don´t believe you need a handgun.

And how will registration be enacted/enforced?

Also, "Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one military characteristic"

What is a "military characteristic"? I suspect that they could deem all semiautomatic rifles handguns, and shotguns to have "at least one" such characteristic.

After registration will come confiscation and the exterminations of a now disarmed citizenry. Their 900 exempted weapons came out about a month before the CT tradgedy. Planned gun control? Before the stolen election, the NRA warned that obozo was going to introduce radical gun control measures. The NRA was right!

In response to #9, I´m pretty sure I know what local, county and state law enforcement in this part of the country would NOT do, and that is take part in the confiscation of weapons. The National Guard won´t participate either. Those folks are neighbors, friends, family, and all own personal firearms themselves, the same as virually every person that I know (and I meet many, many people). I realize that people from the large, "bright blue" urban areas and/or northern and west coast states may have less confidence in the authorities. If the fools in DC wnat some "social upheaval", they are on the right path with this idiocy from the CA whats-her-name.

A good counter to this action would be to start hundreds of local militias to make sure that there is a coordinated response to any government misdeeds like this. These people can not be allowed to confiscate our property or we spit in the faces of all patriots who came before us and did what had to be done. These people and their ear leader sound stupid for what they are proposing but it will produce the same results that a smart guy like Hitler would want.

I see Drudge has Feinstein´s proposal as the main story and is linked as "Civil War: Senate To Go For Handguns."

I understand headlines inherently have an element of hyperbole to pull readers in. However, before those less aware dismiss Drudge´s headline concerning Feinstein´s proposal as mere hyperbole, they had best take a look at the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the first battles of the American Revolution.

There are those who will take to arms to defend the Constitution of the United States and the God-given rights it was enacted to protect.

While these may be seen as extreme measures by those in ruling elite, the reality is this is no more "extreme" than a government - whose only power is that delegated to it by the People - which would forcibly (at the pain of death, if necessary) disarm law abiding citizens.

As many here are aware, the Left´s call for the disarmament of individuals has noting to do with safety, and everything to do with raw power. The Left relies upon compulsion as its means of enacting its policies, however, ultimately, armed men and women will resist tyranny.

"One military characteristic" could be defined as any semi-automatic firearm having a trigger, because all military small arms have a trigger. The liberals would do that in a minute if they thought such a definition would ban more firearms.

How about your gun collection, the "grandfathered" guns in which could no longer be transferred when you die to your sons and daughters, instead they would then be confiscated by the ATF.

As far as national firearms registration goes, I think the Canadians just got rid of their registration system that they found was too expensive and did not deter anyone from doing anything bad.

It was Michael Barone who, early in President Obama’s first term, described the Obama administration as “gangster government.” With Obama now re-elected, his administration’s gangsterism has shifted into high gear. Consider the following news stories from just the last 24 hours: * Dinesh D’Souza, who made a popular documentary film critical of Obama, has been indicted on felony charges by a U.S. Attorney in New York for using straw contributors to donate $20,000 to a friend’s Senate campaign in 2012.

In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the United States took a number of rapid actions. One was the passage of the Patriot Act, which I regarded as a mistake then, and which doesn´t seem much better now. Another was the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, a bureaucratic monstrosity that doesn´t seem to have done much to keep us actually, you know, safer. And another was the federal takeover of aviation security by the Transportation Security Administration, which also seems to have been a bust.

WASHINGTON - Two minutes after the start of an event he was scheduled to headline, President Barack Obama stepped into his limo for the 13-minute ride to the Four Seasons Hotel here. Inside the five-star hotel, 150 Wall Street CEOs waited. The crowd expected the president to deliver a speech filled with reassurances about the problems associated with ObamaCare. Instead, he offered biting partisan rhetoric that tried to blame Republicans for the failures of his signature health-care bill. In politics there is always an exit door.

The Wall Street Journal broke the news this weekend that, even as President Obama was telling the American people they could keep their health plans, “some White House policy advisors objected to the breadth of Mr. Obama’s ‘keep your plan’ promise. They were overruled by political aides.” Overruled by political aides? This is simply damning. It’s not easy to get a lie into a presidential speech. Every draft address is circulated to the White House senior staff and key Cabinet officials in something called the “staffing process.” Every line is reviewed by dozens of senior officials, who offer comments and

On August 18, security officers at London’s Heathrow Airport detained a Brazilian named David Miranda. They did so under the United Kingdom’s Terrorism Act, which allows authorities to hold an individual for up to nine hours if they believe him to be in possession of “information which he knows or believes might be of material assistance” to terrorists. The officers seized Miranda’s cellphone, camera, laptop, encrypted memory sticks, and external hard drive.

But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
