Sen. Dianne Feinstein will be introducing 'gun control' legislation in January. She is using the excuse of Sandy Hook to introduce legislation that is jaw dropping in its breadth. I have yet to read the text of the bill, but the write up Feinstein provides describes vast regulation of weapons of all sorts. Indeed, it would appear to reach virtually all semi-automatic rifles and hand-guns, since virtually all use detachable magazines.
Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation:
I have recently concluded that our modern left is every bit as totalitarian as were Stalin and Mao, the only difference being that they are constrained to acting incrementally in our nation. I see now that I was wrong. Feinstein's rather incredible attempt to disarm the law abiding is anything but incremental.
And do note the extreme irony. Feinstein is promoting this as a response to Sandy Hook. The shooter in that massacre had 20 minutes of free fire time once in the "gun free zone" and before police arrived. He could have used virtually any weapon still allowed under Feinstein's regulation to accomplish the same amount of carnage. This isn't legislation responsive to Sandy Hook, it's legislation solely aimed at the law abiding.
