‘Turn ‘Em All In’: Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban Grabs Handguns, Shotguns

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) seemingly endless pursuit of a ban on “assault rifles” since the Sandy Hook tragedy has now led to the introduction of her “Assault Weapons Ban of 2013“–a bill that not only bans “assault rifles,” but numerous handguns and shotguns too.

Here’s a question: When did handguns and shotguns become “assault rifles”?

They didn’t, but Democrats see this as their big chance to take away as many guns as they can, and they’re not about to pass that chance up.

That this move is as shameless as it is unconstitutional is evident in the fact that the vast majority of the weapons Feinstein seeks to ban were not even used in Sandy Hook, the Clackamas Town Center shooting, or the shooting at the Aurora theater. It is a gun grab, pure and simple.

But as I wrote on Dec. 27, 2012, when details were already leaking about Feinstein’s bill, “If we are foolish enough to embrace a ban on any weapon in the coming Congress, then we are unwittingly embracing a ban on every weapon.”

The truth of this is playing out before us today.

We must hold the feet of Republican Senators and House members to the fire on this one so that they stop Feinstein’s bill in its tracks. In 2014, we need to go to the voting booth with the same vigor we showed in 2010, and turn these gun grabbers out of office.

      To me it seems hypocritical: Feinstein is saying “no guns at all” but is guarded by people bearing arms. What’s good for the public should be a must for those who work for the public.

    3. I agree with Matt F. Most Democrats and a few too many Republicans are detached from reality. They don’t identify with their constituents or the majority of the public. They seem to think they know what is best for us,yet those same laws dont apply to them or their families. Obama recently extended secret service protection for past and present presidents and their families for LIFE! MUST BE GOOD TO BE THE KING.

    4. So when is someone going to organize a march on washington? “They” had their so called million man march… I think it would do a lot of good if “we” did a million ,an march… And then have every gun owner in the country show up.

      I’ll go. I have some vacation time coming.
