Senator Feinstein´s All-Out
Assault On Gun Rights

Forbes, by Larry Bell

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/8/2013 5:40:46 AM

Capitalizing upon the tragedy that savagely took the lives of 20 children and 7 others in Newtown, Connecticut, Senator Feinstein is introducing a gun ban bill which has been in the works for over a year which represents a direct assault upon Second Amendment rights. According to a December 27th posting on her website and a draft bill obtained by the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, the legislation would define “assault weapons” to comprise a much larger variety of firearms than ever before, require current owners of those included to register them with the Federal Government

Good article but a few factual errors. It IS legal for civilians to own machine guns if registered (and approved) with the ATF and a $200 transfer fee (tax stamp) is paid. The 1986 Firearms Owners Protection Act (FOPA) simply banned transfer and ownership of those registered or made after May 19, 1986... Of course that made the supply very limited and the price very high.

I will not surrender or register my weapons.

This ban if enacted would stop the production and sale of most modern firearms in the USA. A result of that would wipe out most of the US small arms industry along with the related industries that supply all sorts of firearms related accessories and supplies along with the many thousands of well paid American jobs that now exist in those industries. Of course the liberal Democrats could care less about all that, because those industries are considered to be a big conservative Republican constituency group.

´Here, obfuscation of facts is a primary strategy, conflating a common misconception of popular semi-automatic “assault weapons” with automatic “machine guns” which have been illegal for domestic sale since 1986...´

[BTW, #1, although you are correct about simply needing a tax stamp for an NFA firearm, in practice no new tax stamps are being issued.]

I´m sure millions of gun owners are going to line up to tell the federal government what and how many guns they have so FEMA troops can raid their houses.

If you´re a lucky gun owner,you might get a crack at re education to learn the errors of your ways.

Of course it never crosses their minds that gun owners are also the backbone of the economy.

feinstein occasionally poses as a moderate, but almost invariably walks back or qualifies her reasonable sounding pronouncements. In other words she specializes in publicity stunts that enable her supporters and her to say she is a fair minded non-partisan. The truth is, contrary to beliefs by some on this site, feinstein very rarely "gets it right." feinstein is a far left elitist hypocrite.

There´s a petition on the WH site to impeach her for attacking the US constitution, and our constitutional right to bear arms. If you care, sign it.

#1, as alluded to by #4, they can´t ban the machineguns (or any arms) and they know it. What they did was decide they would no longer accept the tax and registration on any machineguns manufactured after May of 1986. That´s why they lost the two court cases in the 7th and 10th circuits (in the early 90s) when they sought to prosecute two guys for failure to register. Basically the appeals courts said you can´t prosecute for failure to do something you no longer accept (register and pay the tax). That´s over-simplified but gets to the heart of both cases. The DOJ appealed to the USSC for about 12 days and then with-drew their appeal when they realized the basis for the decision at the appeals court level was such the USSC would agrer and then the decision would become law all over the land, not just in those two circuit court regions.
Needless to say, the LSM was very, very quiet about these decisions back then.

Although, at one time, I held the opinion that Diane Feinstein was one of the few liberals in congress who had a modicum of common sense in her cranium, her actions in the era of Obama are causing me to doubt that opinion more each passing day.

Her demeanor of late continues to give credence to the (wont go away) rumors that something nefarious is going on with the esteemed lady and her erratic behavior is because of skeletons in her closet of which Obama has knowledge and some control over.

Sen. "Fine Stein" has not lived up to that nom de plume - Sen. "Good Mug" might be more fitting, except that the passage of time has chipped away at that too.

"With onion peeling tears - more numerous,
Comes awareness, anything but humorous."

Pundits Ask: Why Won´t

NEW YORK — Why doesn´t Anthony Weiner just quit? It´s a question angry voters, pundits and fellow politicians have been asking almost nonstop in the nearly two weeks since the New York City mayoral candidate´s latest sexting bombshell, which has sent his poll numbers plummeting and turned his campaign into a chaotic sideshow. Weiner insists he´s staying in the race no matter what. And experts say that beyond the former congressman´s well-known ego and combativeness, his stance may just be rooted in political calculation. A leading theory: Weiner takes his hits on the campaign trail, gives the media a chance

President Obama took to the road last week to lecture Americans, as he is wont to do. “We’ve tolerated a little more inequality for the sake of a more dynamic, more adaptable economy,” he lectured in Galesburg, Ill. “That’s all for the good. But that idea has always been combined with a commitment to equality of opportunity to upward mobility — the idea that no matter how poor you started, if you’re willing to work hard and discipline yourself and defer gratification, you can make it, too. That’s the American idea.” And that’s the problem. The president says the words, but

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s quest for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian quagmire seems to represent the last political stand for the former Bay State senator who, up until now, is best known for being a presidential loser. Kerry is surely trying to compose his ultimate swan song by capping his 30-year career in politics with a brokered Middle East peace deal by early 2014, right? Or is he hoping for something a little bigger? After all, Kerry has never put his 2004 White House loss fully behind him, people close to him say. Sure, Hillary Clinton

How to Beat Hillary: End
the Republican Fratricide

Hillary Rodham Clinton must be reveling in the latest round of Republican fratricide. First, there’s the Chris Christie-Rand Paul blow-up over national security, surveillance, and pork. Then, there’s John McCain’s musing over possibly supporting Hillary—his fellow Iraq War-backer of a decade ago. And, finally, there’s L.I. GOP Congressman Pete King’s comparison of Rand Paul to a Nazi-appeaser! At this rate, Clinton is on her way to a 40-state victory and a third consecutive Democratic win, while leaving the Republicans with the distinction of being the Party of Dixie, Idaho, and little else.

In October, Anthony P. Bosch, a troubled businessman who had a permanent suntan and a white lab coat with his name embroidered on it — though he had no medical license — clashed with an investor in his small anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables, Fla. Bosch’s modest business, Biogenesis, promised to make Floridians feel stronger and younger. But Porter Fischer, a former client turned partner, felt spurned over a $4,000 investment gone sour, and he wanted to embarrass Bosch, “to take him out.” What began as a small-time dispute on the fringes of the medical world

The U.S. government is quietly pressuring telecommunications providers to install eavesdropping technology deep inside companies´ internal networks to facilitate surveillance efforts. FBI officials have been sparring with carriers, a process that has on occasion included threats of contempt of court, in a bid to deploy government-provided software capable of intercepting and analyzing entire communications streams. The FBI´s legal position during these discussions is that the software´s real-time interception of metadata is authorized under the Patriot Act. Attempts by the FBI to install what it internally refers to as "port reader" software, which have not been previously disclosed, were described

The Pentagon’s illusion of choice:
Hagel’s 2 options are really 1

Yesterday at the Pentagon, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel unveiled the results of his Strategic Choices and Management Review (SCMR). The belated effort sought to think through the options — many unsavory — available to the military should sequestration and its $500 billion defense budget cuts remain law for the rest of the decade. Secretary Hagel’s cafeteria menu of options for policymakers should sequestration continue is so unpalatable because this is not the first round of defense budget cuts. Sequestration’s $500 billion in Pentagon reductions come on top of the close to $1 trillion in military spending cuts

While George Zimmerman is likely trying to put his high profile murder trial behind him, the parents of the teenager he said he killed in self-defense are holding out hope that his legal woes are far from over. Zimmerman was acquitted on second degree murder and manslaughter charges in the death of Trayvon Martin. But The Miami Herald reports that Martin´s parents met this week with Justice Department prosecutors and FBI agents about the possibility of a criminal civil rights case against Zimmerman. The Justice Department has said in the past that it would look into whether Zimmerman violated

So Laura Botero climbed the darkened staircase to the second floor and knocked on the door.

Consider me fully in the Andrew McCarthy camp on the legality and potential effectiveness of a properly structured and run NSA metadata program, but the NSA program — as with all intelligence-gathering efforts — ultimately depends on an administration and government elite that is actually willing to let the men and women on the ground pull the triggers they’ve been trained to pull. Consider these three vignettes: First, from former attorney general Michael Mukasey, writing in the aftermath of the Boston bombing: Tamerlan Tsarnaev is the fifth person since 9/11 who has participated in terror attacks after questioning by the FBI.

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense.

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language.

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not? Daniel Pipes: Don’t know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even humiliating.

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.
