I have been watching Cspan and following the news concerning Dianne Feinstein’s proposed assault weapons ban this morning.
Senator Ted Cruz from Texas underlines the premise of limiting the scope of constitutional protections in this proposed bill and asks Ms. Feinstein point blank if she thinks it is OK to let Congress pick and choose who and what is afforded protection under different articles of the Bill of Rights.
She instead gets all butt hurt and goes off about her bona fides and tries to duck the question.
Good for Cruz because he makes her answer it.
You can watch it here .
Everything I have seen or read points to Feinstein’s proposed weapons ban not having a snowballs chance in Hell of passing the Senate.
It is bad legislation based on emotion and not fact.
In effect, it would ban a completely legal semi automatic rifle for the mere act of adding a fucking piece of plastic to it, a hand grip,yet exempt the rifle with out it.
A fucking plastic handgrip changes absolutely nothing to the mechanical functionality of the rifle, it just changes its appearance and that, in Feinstein’s fucked up perception, makes it a scary fucking assault weapon.
All four of those rifles in that picture are exactly the same model and are mechanically identical.
The only fucking difference between them is cosmetic. Different stocks, fore grips and other bolt on goodies.
It’s the same damn thing as putting a set of custom wheels on a God Damn Chevy.
Doesn’t make it run any better or go any faster, it just gives it a different appearance.
Yet according to this self proclaimed fucking “expert”, the bottom three rifles should be banned.
So you tell me, with all of the expertise and information available to this woman with a snap of her fingers, do you think she is “The One” who should be deciding what should and shouldn’t be legal when she obviously doesn’t know what the fuck she is talking about?
I don’t fucking think so.
