CCRKBA Blasts Party-Line Passage Of Feinstein Gun Ban Measure

BELLEVUE, WA – -( Thursday’s strict party-line vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee to move anti-gun Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s measure banning so-called “assault weapons” was an insult to millions of law-abiding American citizens who own such firearms and have harmed nobody, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

“Instead of banning the most popular firearm in the country,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “we need to ban politicians who assault our rights. We are appalled and disappointed that Sen. Feinstein and her cronies have advanced this measure, which demonizes firearms that are used thousands of times each year to protect lives and property from criminal attack.”

Gottlieb noted that FBI crime data says that rifles of any kind are used in only a fraction of violent crimes annually, “yet Democrats on the Judiciary Committee have allowed this legislative travesty to move forward.”

“Demonizing certain firearms, and by default the people who own them, has become a scapegoat strategy by politicians who have allowed a broken justice system to release violent offenders back on the street while disarming their potential victims,” Gottlieb said. “By focusing their energy on disarming law-abiding citizens, politicians like Sen. Feinstein are perpetuating a myth that firearms cause crime. That’s as foolish as believing that cars cause drunk driving.”

Sen. Feinstein acknowledged that her legislation faces an uphill battle when it reaches the full Senate.

“We will encourage our members to contact their senators about this legislation,” Gottlieb said. “Public policy and constitutional rights should not be subject to the whims of gun prohibitionists who are quick to exploit the crimes committed by a few crazy people, in order to advance their agenda of public disarmament.”

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at or by email to [email protected].

I have an observation about how Chicago and cook county punishes criminals .they just turn them loose over and over to die of old age!?!?! More a sad situation than anything else! All law abiding gun owners must stand up and be as vocal as possible in opposition to the devilcrats anti gun/ second amendment communistic agenda!!!plus be sure to vote against any politician who doesn’t support defending gun rights and the second amendment!!! It’s our only hope for preserving America.


I know its not right to wish ill will on others, but I seriously hope that diane goes to reap her rewards in purgatory the deepest darkest place in hell soon, real soon.

Just who in the hell does this Sharpay faced bag think shes is. Ya she says she has been there 20 yrs. that’s 20 yrs too long. She says she has studied the Constitutuin, What part did she study? The contents page probably and was instantly confused at that point. This b$tch has no right to dictate any policy on the 2nd. Amendment or any others. I don’t care what she thinks, I don’t need her or this fu–ed up govt. to do my thinking for me. These Communist bastards have got to be shut down and removed from the… Read more »


It has gotten so that what we send our congress or politicians don’t matter. They pay us no attention. It is what they want.The best we can do is vote them out on election day. Any of them who hesitated on a pro-gun bill, is not for us. Even if they finally voted for it, it shows they didn’t really want to. We need politicians who are for us and not for what they think is going to be popular or politically correct, which Hillary Clinton invented as a term. There are people out there who is going to vote… Read more »

This is sad. This bill is not what the people want, it’s what Feinstien wants. My faith in the rule of law is fading fast. It is becoming the rule of man (or woman). So, where do we go from here? Voting seems to effect little change, hell, my guess is that most of the voting machines are rigged anyway. These liberal democrats seem to win against our will anyway. I plan on giving it one more chance in ’14. After that, if we can’t settle the 2nd Amendment issues once and for all, I give up. I will follow… Read more »

All you gun owners who voted democratic have brought a plauge on us lawful owners who only exercise our God given rights. I’m sure you did not know what you were doing, but bought into the media hype of “evil republicans and Obama is for the common man” (typical low information voter thinking). You never thought your “friends” would come for you, now they are..hope this is a wakeup call to you..if you were not well informed before, you should be now. I doubut she has ever read the constitution, it’s only 14 pages long.


Feinstein said nothing about polls, while debating with Cruz. Instead she spoke of seeing people, who had been shot, in hospitals, the fact that she’s been on that committee for 20 years, and a mayor for 9. So, if the polls, that she supposedly saw, were in fact, that high, don’t you think she would have said that to him. So my guess is, she is full of her self, and trying to push what she wants on the public. She, single handedly, got to decide which guns are OK, in her eyes, and which are not. 2700+, isn’t that… Read more »


Commisar Bagface Feinstein lives in a whole different world !! She stated on CNN after the hearing that all the “POLLS” taken show that the majority of Americans WANT THIS BAN!!!” According to the polls she said that were in the 50s -60s and that if the were in the 15-20s she would have dropped it !
