Dianne Feinstein finally admitted it! She said of the previous Assault Weapons ban:
“It had begun to do what we wanted it to do, which is to drive down the number of these guns over time,” she said. “The NRA has their statistics, I have mine.”
I thought the purpose of assault weapons bans was to reduce crime and protect our schools? This would suggest the REAL purpose was to get semiautomatic rifles away from law-abiding citizens. But that would mean that she told us something that wasn’t true to support an agenda, and it would also mean that gun owners are NOT “heartless mother fuckers” for resisting laws that are CLEARLY not designed to reduce crime.
She also failed to mention that the NRA Statistics came from Law Enforcement whereas Diane’s came from the Amalgamated Federation of Moon-bats local 6, department of wishful thinking…..
I would love to sit across the desk from this well dressed British Git. I would love for him to use his aristocratic British tone to whine “why do you neeeeeeeeeed and AR 15 that holds 30 rounds” This is what I would say, provided he would not try to talk over me as he does every other guest.
“Well Piers, first of all it is the bill of RIGHTS not the bill of NEEDS, and in America one can own a $85,000 car or drink a $7 coffee which none of us NEED but we can have without having to explain ourselves to anyone. I think your question is more why an AR-15 instead of a double-barreled shotgun like Vice President Biden espouses. First let me give you the Constitutional answer, then I will give you the practical answer.
When Drafting our Constitution and the Bill of Rights our Founding Fathers were crafting a document that would by its very design limit the power of government while empowering the citizens to keep watch over their own liberty. They recalled that it was the citizen soldier with privately owned firearms that forged our nation and viewed a standing army as a tool of oppression. With this in mind they created the Second Amendment to protect the ability of the Citizenry to be able to take up arms against a standing army should it ever become necessary. In the Late 1700’s there was no difference between a “military” and a “Civilian” arm. There were long arms, pistols and swords. The idea that a citizen could only own one type of arm and the military could have another would never have occurred to them. There are about 2.2million Men and Women in the United States military and between 60 and 100 million lawful gun owners in the United States, which is why we are still free. So IF you were an American Citizen and the day came where you and your neighbors had to take up arms against invading troops which would you rather have to protect your family with, an AR-15 with four 30 round magazines or a double barreled shotgun? But of course you do not believe that would even happen so lets talk practical.
Police in the U.S. carry guns. They do this to protect themselves first and foremost. A lot of study, testing and research goes into the selection of police equipment. Currently, most uniform patrol officers carry at least a semi automatic pistol with a standard capacity magazine of 15-17 rounds, plus two additional 15-17 round magazines on their belts. If this is the national standard for a police officer’s personal protection, why is this not the ideal standard for my personal protection? Additionally, the police in jurisdictions in my area have an AR-15 in their cruiser and usually a shotgun as well. WHY? Because each of those weapons plays a different role in different self defense situations. Since I have no idea what situation I could find myself in, it stands to reason that I should look to the Police for direction as to what firearms make the most sense.
Absent the proper licensing and tax stamps and other red tape required to own a fully automatic machine gun, Semi Automatic rifles and pistols are EXACTLY the kind of weapons you would want to fight against an invading army, and these are EXACTLY the arms protected by the Second Amendment. If you were an impartial journalist and not an entertainer you would be asking the real question which is why are these ideal self defense weapons EXACTLY the ones Diane Feinstein and company trying to ban?”
Ban “assault weapons? Are your kidding me? they should be ISSUED!
Forgetting for a minute that there is actually no such thing, What we are talking about is Semi-automatic rifle, and even though they are all the same for the sake of argument we will assume they tactical rifles.
The Founding Fathers crafted the Second Amendment to ensure that American Citizens could always defend against and defeat a “standing army”. Absent having an FFL and all the associated paperwork to own an actual M16A2 or an M4 Carbine, what would the next best thing be?
Call me crazy (and many do) but it would seem that a semi auto-automatic rifle with a detachable magazine in a sufficient caliber would be the thing to have would it not? Oh, and LOTS of Rounds. Every home without prohibited persons in it should have at least one semi-auto rifle, shotgun and a pistol in it and everyone should be proficiant in their use. In the Days when the Consisitution was drafted, every home had a musket over the hearth. This is as good an idea today as it was then!

Ever notice the Anti-freedom folks are always up in arms about “THE GUN LOBBY” like it is some alien invading force hellbent on the destruction of all that is good and right with the world? According to these moonbats, the majority of America would do away with guns altogether but THE GUN LOBBY forces Congress to go against the majority of right thinking people etc etc. Problem is, they have no idea what the GUN LOBBY is. Like any other lobbying group, the “gun lobby” represents the special interests of a certain industry. Realtors, Oil companies, Home builders, Hotel owners all have lobby’s to watch out for their interests.
The complaint by the Antis is that they are too powerful and have too much money to spend. ok, so where do they get the money? The all-powerful “gun lobby” is funded by American Gun manufacturers. ok, so where do THEY get all that money to spend? why, from SELLING GUNS! So, if they have a lot of money to spend, and it is from selling lots of guns, who bought all of those guns? Contrary to what the Antis would have you belive, every new gun goes through THREE legal purchases before it can get into the hands of a criminal, so therefore if a gun manufacturer sells a million dollars worth of guns, that means they sold 2000 guns to American citizens that the Federal Bureau of Investigation said were legal to purchase. Lets follow this a step further; A portion of every gun purchase goes to fund the “GUN LOBBY” to help keep manufacturers in business. Since the demand for their product is very high, then they are by proxy representing the wishes of a large number of Americans to be able to purchase their products. How does that translate into the “Majority” of the country is opposed to gun ownership? Simple-It doesnt!
in 2011, there were just under 16.5 MILLION nics checks done, and allowing for the 1.3% denial rate that means at least 14.3 milion guns were sold in the U.S. last year, the number is most likely higher. To put that in perspective that is enough guns sold in the U.S. one year to arm each soldier in the world’s ten largest armies with one gun each and still have 4 million left over. Since Nation wide 1 out of 3 Americans own a firearm and 5% of the population buys a new firearm, how do you trivialize these numbers?????
In addition to ignoring History, Logic, and Reason, the Anti will now need to ignore Math as well.
Moonbats are stupid.

Is it amazing that the same assholes who would call the cops on you if your car had a loud exhaust panic at the very idea of you putting a muffler on your gun? I’m just saying……
Not that I should be surprised, But has anyone besides me noticed the anti-gunners rapid change of heart now that National concealed carry reciprocity is working tis way through congress?
The same folks who have been calling for NATIONAL licensing, NATIONAL Gun Bans, and NATIONAL registries and now screaming about STATES rights in the face of NATIONAL concealed carry. Nothing lends credibility to your position like turning 180 degrees to keep the party line going, no matter how moronic it makes you look.
