Florida - -(Ammoland.com)- Sen. Dianne Feinstein has released a summary of the gun control measures that she wishes to implement, mere days after the horrific shooting of 26 people, including 20 children, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.

Seizing on the “opportunity to do things [that he] could not do before”… On Sunday, President Obama declared he would use the “full weight” of his office to support the measure.

We, as a nation, have endured more than 40 years of the modern gun control experiment, and to what end?

Chicago and D.C., the Brady Campaign’s epitomes of progressive gun control are awash in gun violence, and Chicago alone has recently surpassed 500 murders in 2012, a new Windy City record. Albert Einstein once said that “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results.” Not surprisingly, the gun control lobby’s response is, “obviously, we need MORE gun control.” The questions are, at what point does “more” become “too much” and are we willing to simply wait until it’s too late to protect the interests that are personally important to each of us? At what point will you, personally, say “enough”?

Sen. Feinstein’s bill calls for banning any sale of so-called “assault weapons”; similar to the 1994 ban, except that this proposal is much more far reaching and encompasses a far greater range of firearms. Her proposal includes prohibitions on firearms that have but a single “undesirable” characteristic; any one of which will classify your firearm as an “assault weapon”. It proposes that any of the newly classified “assault weapons” be registered as NFA items and require the purchase of a tax stamp. What “single characteristics”, you ask? A pistol grip, a forward grip, a thumb-hole stock, an adjustable length stock or any semiautomatic rifle having an overall length of less than 30 inches!

Most youth model firearms that we use to pass on our firearms heritage will be reclassified as prohibited “Assault Rifles”.

Under Feinstein’s bill, you would be required to register common firearms with the BATFE as an NFA item, just as if you owned a crew served machine gun. The venerable (but scary looking) AR-15 is a favorite for competitive shooting, the taking of small to medium game, varmint control, and home defense.

If you own a rifle which Feinstein and her cronies classify as an “assault weapon”, you would be grandfathered in under the current proposal and may legally own it until your death, so long as you have your original receipt. Under Sen. DiFi’s proposal, your heir’s BIRTHRIGHT MUST BE SURRENDERED TO THE GOVERNMENT! It would be a violation of law to bequeath it to your children or spouse.

Do you own a handgun that can ACCEPT a magazine capable of containing more than 10 cartridges? Do you own a handgun that has a threaded barrel? You too are in the sights of Feinstein’s gun banning radar.

Understand that even if your personal firearms are not subject to the proposed legislation, eventually, they will be. Gun banners like Feinstein, Schumer, and Reid simply won’t be satisfied until every single firearm in the United States is banned, and the Second Amendment is completely dismantled. Don’t believe it? Gun banners continue to tell us that “no one wants our guns”. In the recent years of gun control, no politician dared utter anything to the contrary…until now.

In an interview on an Albany, NY. radio station on Thursday, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo was discussing a package of gun control measures he planned to introduce in New York State on January 9th.

On the subject of “assault weapons”, Gov. Cuomo declared, “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

Believe it friends; they are coming for your guns. It’s out in the open now. Never mind the Second Amendment guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. Never mind the Fourth Amendment guaranteed right to be secure in your possessions. The gun banners can’t be bothered with trivialities like Constitutional Rights or Supreme Court decisions. They are irrelevant, you must comply!

Ironically, not a single proposed gun control measure would have had any effect on the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The firearm(s) used were lawfully owned but illegally obtained by an insane person. The shooter broke at least 23 laws before the first round was fired. Further, no one from the gun banners is talking about the real issue here; mental health and the factors that contribute to violent crime. When a drunk driver swerves into another vehicle and innocent people lose their lives, no one blames the car. And don’t be fooled about the altruistic motives professed by the gun haters.

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.

Florida State Senator Chris Smith has even filed a bill that would destroy your right to self-defense any time that you have left a “place of safety”.

The time has come for ALL gun owners to band together to defeat these overt and unprecedented attacks on the right to keep and bear arms. We can no longer simply take the selfish attitude that if it doesn’t affect us personally, it doesn’t matter. Thomas Jefferson wrote, “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” The time for silence has passed. We need every gun owner in America – hunter, competitive shooter, collector, self-defense advocate, and recreational shooters – to stand united and call and write your legislators to express your disgust with the trashing of your fundamental and individual rights, rights just as sacred as the right to free speech.

Your liberty and that of your children may very well depend on your actions right now. Time has run out, fence sitting cannot be abided.

Act now by following these three easy steps:

  1. Write and call your legislators immediately!
  2. Join Florida Carry!
  3. Stay Involved!

SUBJECT: Just Say “NO!” to Gun and Magazine Bans!

Dear ,

California Senator Feinstein is once again pushing for a ban on so called “Assault Weapons”. This is a thinly veiled attack on all private gun ownership. Her own publications make it clear that her proposal is not about the features of the firearms, but instead is about removing as many firearms as possible from private ownership, despite the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

See: http://www.feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/files/serve/?File_id=10993387-5d4d-4680-a872-ac8ca4359119

“Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test”.

This part of the proposed gun ban is particularly telling about the true agenda of the gun-haters. You see, this makes it obvious that these features are not being banned only because a gun owner would just need to remove those features to keep their gun from being put in to the same classification as a highly regulated automatic machine-gun. Because these parts are easily removed, a person would be able to keep their firearm by just removing those banned parts. This is not good enough for the gun-ban lobby; they want as many guns banned as possible regardless of what features they actually have on them.

Please help support the law abiding gun owners of Florida and the United States by just saying “NO!” to all gun and magazine ban or registration proposals.

Respectfully yours,

      I will never bow to any of their tyranical bs, we cannot let these laws pass, thousands every year would perish from noone being able to defend against criminals & rapest. these scum are not interested in the amount of rapes their are.one every 4 min. in this country,they only care about themselves.

    2. It’s a slippery slope. When I tried to explain to a friend that an AR-15 was no different than a bolt action in caliber, she said we should just ban all of them then. I’m like, wtf are you smoking? You want to deprive me of my right to hunt and feed my family? These people have no critical thinking skills. They don’t even realize what they’re advocating, which is a police state. Whichever mainstream media station that they agree with tells them what they ought to think, and they go right along with it.

      Every single tyrannical regime in history has disarmed people first. They had to, because how else would a small group of people subjugate a large group of people? Even in the middle ages peasants were never allowed to own weapons, lest they rise up and overthrow their lords.

    3. All issues aside, and yes its really sad that any child or anyone is killed, whether by a firearm or by an abortion or by drowning or what ever, but the facts are that gun control doesn’t work,,, for the people. Sure it works great for the government. But the people? It is proven, the facts speak for themselves. As the climate change guys would say. The science is in. It is a closed subject If you disarm the regular people only criminals and the government, (wait I repeated myself) will have guns, and if they don’t have guns they will hack you to death with a machete or something. A firearm is an equalizer. That is all it is. Its for the man sitting at home with his wife and kids when an armed intruder or intruders burst into his home with intentions of criminal activity. People die everyday. People murder others everyday. 8000 deaths each year from a gun? Many many more people are killed, murdered by other weapons each year. Gun crime is a very small percentage.I would love to live in a world where guns weren’t needed by people, for a free people, but that is not the reality we live in. There are evil people in the world who would rob, rape, and murder all the time, if they were not afraid of getting shot.
      Why should anyone be punished for others misdeeds? Why should my rights be trampled? When it won’t help?

    4. oh, and they have always want all of the guns. just now getting that?

      This has nothing to do about hunting or sport… It has to do with the people being able to have the right to bear arms. WHY? so they can defend themselves in case a tyrannical government that wants to take away their rights comes upon them. And THIS is why it is so serious. If you give a mouse a cookie, he will want a glass of milk. We are indeed down a slippery slope and we must stop this immediately. Those of us who give up liberty for security deserve neither (Benjamin Franklin). Wake up as many people as you CAN!

    8. Not one more gun control law, none. Gun control kills in the short run and the long run.

      OVER MY PAST 60 YEARS OF HANDLING FIREARMS & USING/POSSESSING THEM…I HAVE NOT HAD THE NEED TO USE THEM IN ANGER OR DEFENSE. THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES I WISH I COULD HAVE USED THEM ON CERTAIN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS-WHO HAVE THE INTELLECT OF A 6-YR-OLD-WHO DECIDE TO BUILD PARKING MULTI-MILLION PARKING GARAGES-THAT NO ONE USES, ETC.

      LET’S NOT FORGET THE CORE OF THE PROBLEM=PEOPLE. PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE. I AGREE…THAT…IF IT WEREN’T FOR GUNS…HOW COULD PEOPLE SHOOT PEOPLE? ARE WE GOING TO GET RID OF ALL KNIVES…BIG STICKS…HEAVY PIPES…CARS…PIPE-BOMBS…IED’S…POISON’S…ROPE…STRONG HANDS…UNPROTECTED BALCONIES/HANDRAILS IN HIGH PLACES…COMPOUND BOWS…CROSSBOWS…SHOVELS…SAMAURI SWORDS…CHAINS…BIG ROCKS…. COME ON PEOPLE!!!!! BANNING GUNS IS JUST AN EXCUSE FOR PEOPLE TO GET THEIR NAMES IN THE NEWS. ALL THESE PEOPLE WANT TO DO IS GET THEIR 15 MINS OF FAME IN A NEWS REPORT-Florida – -(Ammoland.com)- Sen.

      Opposition by …

      Jim and Sarah Brady were guests of honor when President Bill Clinton signed the Brady Act into law on November 30, 1993.
      IF WE’RE GONNA’ DO IT RIGHT…LET’S CRACK DOWN ON “ILLEGAL WEAPONS” COMING IN FROM ABROAD & FROM MEXICO. LET’S BANN IMPORTING “ASSAULT RIFLES” FROM RUSSIA/CHINA/JAPAN & THE LIKE. LET’S TAKE A FIRM STAND ON “GANGS” & GANG VIOLENCE BECAUSE OF ILLEGAL FIREARMS & ASSAULT WEAPONS-BOUGHT ILLEGALLY.

      WHAT WE ARE DOING IS PUNISHING A “GUN OWNER”-BECAUSE HE OWNS GUNS-NOT FOR HOW HE USES THEM. IT’S LIKE PUNISHING YOUR CHILD FOR SAYING “FUCK”…WHEN YOU & YOUR WIFE HAVE USED THE WORD BETWEEN ONE ANOTHER FOR ALL OF HIS 8-16 YRS OF HIS LIFE. THINK ABOUT IT!!!! IF WE ARE GOING TO “CLEAN HOUSE” OF “ILLEGAL WEAPONS” & FIREARMS…WE’D BETTER TAKE A CLOSE HARD LOOK AT ALL THE DAMN PEOPLE ON CAPITOL HILL WHO OPEN & CLOSE THE DOORS OF CONGRESS & ALL THE OFFICES IN & AROUND DC. I WOULD PREDICT THERE ARE MORE “ASSAULT RIFLES” IN DC THAN ANY OTHER PART OF THE COUNTRY!!!! & THAT INCLUDES THE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS & THEIR STAFFS!!!

      I STAND FIRM ON WHAT MY FATHER TAUGHT ME WHEN I WAS 6 YRS OLD: LEARN HOW TO USE THIS RIFLE. ONE DAY…IT CAN MEAN THE DIFFERENCE OF FEEDING YOUR FAMLY…OR SELLING YOUR SOUL.

      AMERICA WAS BORN WITH THE RIGHTS TO BEAR/OWN ARMS. WITHOUT THE USE OF THESE “ARMS” WE WOULD NOT HAVE HAD A “FREEDOM” FROM ENGLAND…WE WOULD NOT HAVE WON THE WARS…WOULD NOT BE FIGHTING FOR OUR/OTHER’S FREEDOMS IN THE WORLD TODAY. PERSONAL PROTECTION TODAY IS PARAMOUNT. YOU JUST DON’T KNOW WHEN SOME “GANGBANGER” IS GOING TO STICK AN UZI IN YOUR BACK & DEMAND YOUR KEYS & WALLET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
