If the Democrat gun-grabbers really wanted to keep Americans safe from violent criminals and lunatics, they would be trying to ban handguns, knives, machetes, baseball bats, rope, gas and automobiles. Because those are the weapons most used in homicides in the USA. The FBI statistics are very clear: rifles of any sort are used less often as a murder weapon than other types of common firearms and other weapons. Second Amendment extremist Dianne Feinstein’s bill would ban firearms that are actually under-represented in nationwide violent crime trends.
Ironically, one of the nation’s most notorious mass shootings was actually stopped by a hero wielding an AR-15, exactly the sort of rifle targeted by the bill. Steven Willeford of Sutherland Springs, TX, credits his AR-15 with giving him the wherewithal to confront an armed assailant who had been preying on helpless victims at a local church. Willeford’s quick action caused the attacker to flee and stopped any further loss of innocent life.
On Wednesday, longtime gun control extremist Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) introduced the latest version of her perennial bid to rid America of its most popular types of rifles, as well as the standard capacity magazines that come with most modern firearms.
Feinstein’s bill promises even more banning, more restrictions, more requirements, and more self-congratulatory and deluded rhetoric.
The firearms the bill targets are the most popular class of centerfire rifles in America, with some 16 million having entered then stream of commerce in the U.S. since the previous national ban expired in 2004. Her own description of the bill notes that it would ban “the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 205 military-style assault weapons by name.” Also included would be certain firearms that accept “a detachable ammunition magazine and [have] one or more military characteristics including a pistol grip, a forward grip, a barrel shroud, a threaded barrel or a folding or telescoping stock.”
Magazines would be banned if they “hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.” Feinstein additionally claims she has “updated” the version of the legislation she introduced in the last Congress by banning more types of adjustable stocks, as well as stabilizing braces for pistols, and grips and stocks developed to comply with “assault weapons bans” enacted in the states. She even promises to include a provision that would ban certain pistols based on their unloaded weight.
The inclusion of stabilizing braces and other features that had been developed specifically in response to prior bans shows that no modern firearm meets Feinstein’s shifting criteria of acceptability. Indeed, her legislation is nothing so much as an attempt to deny law-abiding gun owners the benefits of modern technology and restrict them to 19th Century firearm designs.
Needless to say, however, the modern criminal element will not be playing by the antiquated rules that Feinstein hopes to apply to law-abiding Americans. But, as we noted at the start, Feinstein's bill has nothing to do with stoppng criminals. The whole thing is a blatant assault on the Second Amendment. Americans have a constitutional right to possess firearms “in common use at the time for lawful purposes,” and the semiautomatics and magazines covered by this bill undoubtedly fit that description.
Feinstein and lead co-sponsors Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) portray the measure as a response to youthful activism demanding an end to mass shootings. What the controlled media never tell us is that all that 'grass-roots youthful activism' is funded and organised by big Democrat sponsors, with George Soros being the biggest of all of them. They are not in the least interested in ridding “the streets” of "military grade weaponry." They want to take it away from American patriots; because their long-term aim is to strip Americans of their freedom, and they know they cannot do that while millions of them hold the arms necessary to defend that freedom.
The whole issue - and the proper response needed from American Christians and patriots - is covered in the brilliant new Knights Templar book: Deus Vult - The Great Reset Resistance. See the advert at the top of this site and order your copy TODAY!
