United States --(Ammoland.com)- Senator Feinstein’s newly introduced gun control bill proves once and for all that the the anti-gun crowd does not care one bit about “gun violence“. They do not care about preventing future lunatics from hurting people, and they don’t care in the least about the children who were slain in the horrific tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Oh, they will tell you that they do. They will tell you that everything that they are doing is “for the children“. They will tell you that if we could just get these “evil military style weapons” off of our streets then nothing like this would ever happen again. They will tell you all kinds of things in an effort to emotionally exploit this tragedy to achieve the political end that they want to achieve. Its page 1 of the anti-gun playbook… don’t let a good crisis go to waste. However, what has been put forth in the form of legislation proves once and for all that it is indeed not about guns. Its about control.

Its very clique, I know. “Its not about guns; its about control“. Its an often overused line in the gun control debate, but the far left-wing gun-grabbers have finally shown their hand and proven it to be 100% true. Its never been about the guns. Its never been about preventing tragedies, and this entire episode that we currently see unfolding before us has nothing to do with the children that were slaughtered at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Senator Feinstein’s gun control legislation that has now been put forth in response to the murderous rampage that took place at Sandy Hook, the same legislation that we are being told will end these horrific events, will not do a thing to take a single semi-auto rifle or magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds “off the street“. Yes, you read that right. Not a single one! The miraculous solve for all of this… our all knowing government’s response to the slaughter of 20 children and 7 innocent adults is to not even do what they are telling us must be done. What they are screaming about as being the root cause and major underlying problem that we must address wont even be accomplished.

Why is that? We are being told that guns cause this. We are being told that we must ban “assault weapons” in order to prevent these tragedies from occurring again and again. We are being told by our ruling-class politicians that the solve for this is to get these “evil” rifles and “military -style, super sized magazines” off of the street. So why would they put forth legislation that does not solve this problem and actually get semi-automatic rifles and standard capacity magazines “off of the street“?

Its because our politicians know that it is not politically possible for them to pass a law that would require millions and millions of Americans to line up and be forced to turn in their guns. So they put in a “grandfathering clause” into this bill. A clause that would allow current gun owners to keep their semi-automatic rifles and standard capacity magazines. Not one less firearm or magazine will be taken out of circulation. The bill only bans the manufacture or sale of these items in the future. Nothing changes, as they define the problem that is causing murderous rampages like we saw at Sandy Hook.

Senator Feinstein herself said when she introduced her bill that the “Goal is to Dry Up the Supply Of Weapons Over Time“. This bill is not aimed at saving children’s lives. The purpose of this bill is to infringe on the Constitution and to be a thorn in the side of law abiding citizens and the companies that produce firearms for the civilian population. It will do nothing to “control” criminal access to gun. It will do nothing to decrease violent crime. This is a way for the ruling class to do permanent damage to our right to keep and bear arms.

What you are looking at here with this new gun control civilian disarmament bill is a way for them to slip in draconian gun control measures and to disarm the American people. It wont take guns away from criminals. It does not remove from society what they call “weapons that only belong on a battlefield”. No, this is not about preventing the deaths of innocent elementary school children… its about the political dogma of gun control civilian disarmament. This is the very definition of a politician talking out of both sides of their mouth. In reality it wont get one single semi-automatic rifle “off the streets” for probably the next 100 years or so when these firearms can finally no longer be serviceable. But at the same time they are selling us on the idea that this must be done “for the children“.

By their very own definition for solving this problem and for protecting our children, they are not in anyway attempting to solve this problem or protect our children. By the way that they themselves have framed this debate, it will do absolutely nothing to (What President Obama himself vowed to do) “prevent similar tragedies in the future“. Its a direct attempt to infringe on the Constitution. Nothing more. Nothing less. Its a disingenuous way for them to try to reach as far as they possibly can and get as close to ending the Second Amendment as they can while doing it all in a way that they believe is the most palatable to the electorate.

Its not about the children. Its about a political end-game. Its about disarming the American people, and if they have to wait another 100+ years to see it come to fruition then they are certainly willing to do it.

      Is it just me, or does this article seem anti-gun. Seems like the only point the author makes that gets him upset is that they included a ‘grandfathering’ clause. As a supporter of privacy and the 2nd amendment I don’t want a grandfather clause that includes me registering my guns and paying a $200 tax. Be upset at more than just the inclusion of that clause, hate the entire Idea and Bill.

    2. 100 years? More like twenty. Read Feinstein’s bill. It grandfathers a bunch of guns, but then prohibits not only their sale and manufacture, but also their *transfer*. So you will not be able to sell it or pass it on to your heirs. Part of the bill was to force registration of grandfathered weapons. So they will at your death come and confiscate them. Bleeding hell people wake the f* up! This is confiscation. Do not let them tell you otherwise.

      Feinstein appears to have changed the registration/no transfer/forfeit clause – at least in the published summaries (can’t see the whole bill yet).

      The legislation excludes the following weapons from the bill:
       Any weapon that is lawfully possessed at the date of the bill’s enactment;
       Any firearm manually operated by a bolt, pump, lever or slide action;
       Assault weapons used by military, law enforcement, and retired law enforcement; and
       Antique weapons.

       Requiring a background check on all sales or transfers of a grandfathered assault weapon.
      o This background check can be run through the FBI or, if a state chooses, initiated with a state agency, as with the existing background check system.

       Imposing a safe storage requirement for grandfathered firearms, to keep them away from prohibited persons.

      But as I said earlier THE DEVEIL IS IN THE DETAILS!

    4. Eric – Great article!
      Bill- It’s just you.

      What they’re doing is right out of the British & Japanese playbooks for gradually disarming the people. Fortunately, they’re having a much harder time with it here.

      One thing the pro gun rights side should realize is that it makes no sense to pay taxes to the thugs that are violating our rights. Many talk about being ready to fight tyrannical govt. I say lets start by not supporting it.

      For the uninformed, Diane Feinstein by her own admission, has been working on this bill for many months. She acknowledges it has been in the works since her last draconian bill was rejected. Her current bill has nothing to do with the safety of children or anyone else. When a person wants their way any excuse will do. Would-be dictatorships always eliminate the opposition ( firearms) first

    6. How about the good citizens introduce a “ban for lunatic legislators” bill. Ban all of them, no exceptions. Anyone who has ever voted on and for any piece of legislation concerning the banning of firearms. For we all know a firearm can not just pick itself up and shoot, yes. Why are they blaming the firearms?
      Why a ban on these lunatics? Because they are treasonous, lying tyrants trying to abolish our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

      I just wander why nobody has said anything about impeaching these people that took an oath to UPHOLD the constitution. They can’t even give a budget plan which is constitutional. We don,t teach American history in schools anymore. What it means to be an American. Or what it took to have freedom.We have drunks and liars ruining this great country. Our military,the greatest on earth being dismantled and becoming less of a nation. I could go on and on but its a shame that decant politicians with conservative views can’t stick together and force these liberals who want to destroy America out!!!!!!!!ITS OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO BARE ARMS!!!

      It IS confiscation and once the gungrabbers manage to close the nonexistent “gun show loophole” (the legal private transfer of property ownership between citizens), by requiring all firearm transfers to be conducted though a FFL our guns will be gone.
      Questions: Do you have a gun that has been handed down through generations in your family, or do you own a gun purchased prior to the implementation of the Brady Bull? Will you be able to provide documented proof that you own the gun in order to make a legal transfer of ownership? What’s going to happen to the gun if you can’t.

    9. If you need fast cash and take your gun to the pawn shop,You will have to go thru the red tape to get it back, and you may be denied. OH! dont forget about that back ground check when you give your son his first 22 to hunt rabbits, you may go to jail, thats a gun show loop-hole also.

    10. Another horrible thought: What if by some bizarre scientific experiment, Feinstein/Frankenstein underwent treatment and was still alive at age 180 continuing to taunt our great grandchildren about the evils of guns!Who would have the stomach to view her hideous mug on television? I can’t stand her now!

    11. I agree with Paul Mason. We should impeach the tyrants. Actually the father of our country George Washington would have treasonous people
      Put to death.
