NRA Responds to Feinstein’s Latest Gun Ban: Not Surprising She’s Focused on Curtailing Constitution

From My Cold Dead Hands

The NRA responded to Sen. Feinstein’s latest gun-grabbing proposal.
ABC News reported, via The Blaze:

The National Rifle Association said Feinstein’s plan infringes on second amendment rights and neglects to address other issues spurring gun violence.

“Senator Feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. It’s disappointing but not surprising that she is once again focused on curtailing the Constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health system. The American people know gun bans do not work and we are confident Congress will reject Senator Feinstein’s wrong-headed approach,” Andrew Arulanandam, spokesman for the NRA, told ABC News.

    Feinstein’s a Communist and so is her party. If she were honest she would just come out and say it, but of course niether she or her comrades are anything close to being honest.

    Feinstein, come take my gun you sick bitch, I’ll wait.

    Damn, they (Democrats) hate the Constitution. But note what DiFi is doing here. Not taking on the Constitution itself – a document to which she taken the oath to defend on several occasions – by going through the incredibly hard work of seeking to amend the Constitution to erase the 2d Amendment, she thinks that result can be accomplished through mere legislation.

    Obviously her oath of office, like that of every Democrat, is worthless, utterly.

    The NRA is taking the wrong approach and alienating the people they need on their side. They should be getting behind measures to improve mental health care and other efforts to keep guns out of the hands of crazies. That would be very hard to liberals to criticize.

    There will come later the possibility all the choices will be reduced by Traitor in Chief and his band of Socialist Democrat Commie’s thick skin and thick skull.

    As memberships in the NRA and gun sales climbs and climbs, one would think the Dems would take notice. But no, ideology once again trumps reality and the Constitution. Of course, I guess since so many people voted for Obama, Dems just think the majority of Americans are stupid and will fall for their little propaganda show. The little people are mobilizing. We’re going down fighting.

    They don’t care. If anything, they only thing they feel more of as a result of this is fear.

    And rightly so.

    SHOT Show 2013: Shooting the Walther PPX and PPQ pistols

    [During Media Day at SHOT Show 2013, I had the distinct pleasure of
    shooting a couple of handguns from Walther — the new M2 version of
    the ‘top-of-the-line’ striker-fired PPQ, and the hammer-fired PPX ‘entry
    -level’ pistol.

    The Walther PPQ M2 — a new version of the PPQ M1, which came
    out about three years ago — was a pleasure to shoot. The biggest
    difference between the earlier version of the PPQ and the one
    released at SHOT is a magazine release button.

    The PPQ M1 had European-style magazine release paddles near
    the trigger guard, whereas the M2 meets the demand the company
    had been seeing in the American marketplace for the more traditional,
    changeable, ambidextrous push-button design at the front of the
    ergonomic grip.]

    SHOT Show 2013: Shooting the new Glock 30s

    [During media day at the range at SHOT Show 2013, the temperature
    barely got above freezing and the wind was merciless. I would have
    quit early except there were dozens of new products that I couldn’t
    wait to handle.]

    Rifle found in Lanza’s trunk not a Bushmaster

    [After two weeks of media reports that a .223 AR-15 Bushmaster
    was found in the trunk of Lanza’s car, gun aficionados point out
    that the rifle is not a Bushmaster, nor even an AR-class assault
    weapon. Gun experts say that the weapon shown in an NBC
    News report is some kind of shotgun. (video & more at link)]

    scroll for a bit more of much more here & here & here..

    [Machine Guns Still Illegal

    Contrary to what the ad clearly implies, any weapon that can fire 300 rounds per minute remains illegal for civilians to own without specific clearance by the US Department of Justice.

    In fact, machine guns have been tightly regulated since the passage of the National Firearms Act in 1934, in the wake of the gangster era. Legal ownership of a machine gun requires an extensive federal background check, fingerprinting, signed clearance from the chief of local law enforcement (such as a county sheriff), a $200 excise tax, and weeks of paperwork. That was true before the assault-weapon ban was enacted in 1994, and it remains true with the expiration of the ban at midnight Sept. 13, 2004.

    That’s made clear in a question-and-answer document posted Sept.
    13 on the Web site of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
    Explosives (ATF), explaining the effect of the expiration of the assault
    -weapon ban:

    ATF: All provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA) relating
    to registration and transfer of machine guns . . . still apply.

    The fully automatic version of the AK47 — pictured and described
    in the ad — remains just as illegal as it was before the ban expired.


    But it is also a fact that Bush was publicly committed to sign
    an extension if Congress passed it, and it was Congress that
    failed to do so

    The NRA wants an ‘active’ mental illness database.

    [In his Friday morning news conference, National Rifle Association chief
    executive Wayne LaPierre floated the idea of a national registry of the
    mentally ill as one way to stem gun violence.

    “How can we possibly even guess how many, given our nation’s
    refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill?”

    he asked.]

    If we are going to abridge the Bill of Rights, let us start with limiting Hustler Magazine to less than 10 pages.

    I like Mark Levin’s idea of putting Feinsteins’s bill in front of both houses for an up-or-down vote. Some Dem. senators like Baucus and Franken might squirm a bit as they are up in ’14. Shove this bill down Feinstein’s fat neck.

    Lady Mondegreen commented:

    You mean you didn’t hear that, in the meeting with Joe Biden, the NRA representatives were disappointed to hear that the ONLY thing Biden wanted to talk about was gun control, instead of other things, including better mental health care?

    Why didn’t you know about that? Here, let me help you

    “But the NRA president told CNN that the association could work with the White House in trying to get those who have been determined by law to be mentally ill into a national registry of those who are barred from purchasing firearms.”

    “That would make a difference, because the people who have been involved in these shootings have been people who are severely mentally ill,” Keene said, referring to the Dec. 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 children and six adults died.

    “We don’t think you should demonize everybody who’s got a mental problem, but the fact is that there are people who are not in the gray area,” Keene told CNN. “They should not be allowed to buy firearms.”

    10. Dianne Feinstein & Richard Blum FDIC Scandal

    [Dianne Feinstein (D, California,) introduced legislation to steer $25
    to the FDIC days before CB Richard Ellis Group (a commercial
    real-estate firm headed by Richard Blum, who just so happens to be
    Feinstein’s Husband,) won the competitive bidding for the contract to
    sell foreclosed properties that the FDIC had inherited from failed banks.
    Dianne Feinstein is not a member of the senate committee on banking,
    or housing and urban affairs, which are the ones that has jurisdiction
    over the FDIC’s decisions. Furthermore the FDIC is supposed to operate
    from money it raises from bank paid insurance programs and not money
    from the federal government. This legislation was passed long before
    Feinstein and Blum made a great move using government money.]

    from the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. It turns out that Blum
    also holds large investments in companies that were selling medical
    equipment and supplies and real estate leases—often without the
    benefit of competitive bidding—to the Department of Veterans Affairs,
