Nutty Feinstein Is Losing it: Maybe she is just too old?
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) made her case in favor of gun control during a packed hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. The hearing was called to debate Feinstein’s proposed a ban on so-called “assault weapons.”
“Let me now describe the key features of our new legislation, the ‘Assault Weapons Ban of 2013,’” Feinstein said Wednesday. “The bill bans the sale, transfer, importation, and manufacturing of 157 specifically named semi-automatic assault weapons.”
She continued: “It also bans any other assault weapon, which is defined as a semi-automatic weapon that can accept a detachable magazine and has one military characteristic, such as a pistol grip, barrel shroud, or folding stock…These features were developed for military weapons to make them more effective and efficient at killing people in close-combat situations.”
Feinstein, with photos of Sandy Hook victims behind her, argued that the U.S. has “witnessed an increased number of these mass killings” and called semi-automatic “assault weapons” the one “common thread running through these mass shootings.” She says the gun ban is needed in order to prevent future tragedies.
“Sadly, [Newtown] is not an anomaly,” Feinstein said. “We have witnessed an increased number of these mass killings. The one common thread running through these mass shootings — from Aurora, Colorado, to Tucson, Arizona, to Blacksburg, Virginia — is that the gunman used a military-style semi-automatic assault weapon or a large capacity magazine to inflict unspeakable terror.”
Laughing at nuts because all you can do anymore is laugh — I am sorry miss Nutty Senator, have you seen the FBI charts for 2011, if you had the semi-automatic guns you cite have been a tiny minority of all killings, Ever seen anyone take one into a 7-11 and try to rob the place.
Scare tactics, fear mongering is all we get anymore ….. Our county has for years has stationing sheriff deputies at our local school for years, ever since Biden’s no guns in this school made our school into gun free zones. Hey maybe that’s the nuttiness is what I am talking about ….
