So, Senator Feinstein introduced a bill that has no way of passing

Let’s all freak out.

She went out and had a press conference on how evil auto loading rifles with pistol grips and bayonet lugs are. While doing so, she broke the law by possessing illegal items in the District of Columbia. But that doesn’t matter because she, like David Gregory, is better than you and the law does not apply to her. Her bill has only 17 co sponsors, which seems a little light in the wake of this “national conversation on guns” we’re supposedly having.

And her bill is so ridiculous it would ban most popular handguns.

    Emily Miller (of “Emily gets her Gun” fame) said in a Op-Ed yesterday that the Feinstein Bill NEEDS to get to Senate Floor ASAP, so that 1) it can be shot down in Flames, and 2) we get to find out how many of the so-Called Democratic Moderates AND the Republican RINOs get outed on their True Attitudes to the RKBA for the next Election.

    Granted, it wouldn’t affect those Fools like Feinstein, Schumer, etc. but it WOULD have a “Put Up or Shut Up” on others.

    But even if those Senators vote “Present” or are No-Shows, that can still be used against them in 2014.

    Oh, it’s not her bill I’m worried about. It’s a classic tactic to ask for far more than what you think you will get. What they really want to get (for now) is universal background checks (read: registration) and possibly a >10 mag ban as a “comprimise”.

  3. Tasso Rampante Says:

    That bill is also clearly a Bill of Attainder, by virtue of the fact that certain rifles, manufactured by privately held businesses, are banned by name, yet have none of the banned characteristics.

    It has no chance of escaping the Judiciary Committee as is. Watch the left hand.

    Was it just me…or was one of the “evil” guns she used in her display a paintball gun???

  5. LCB Says:

    The middle gun on the extreme right. Does anyone know what it is? Because it looks like a paintball gun with an air tank attached to me:

  6. LCB Says:

    Never mind…found a better angle. It’s two different guns.

    So the Feinstein bill gets defeated in committee.

    Say seven other bills of somewhat less delirium get voted out of committee over the next month or two.

    Five of these get voted down by voice votes.

    Two come up for real attention.

    One gets compared to the other and enoguh RINOS vote for the less horrid one because “compromise to save your rights.”

    The same thing happens in the House, with bills hitting every committee possible one or two will be passed out for a vote by the members.

    Again, one will be voted down, one will pass.

    The Senate and House will hold a conference committee to work out differences and one unified bill, miraculously closer to Feinstein’s bill than anything that actually got out of committee, will be reported back and passed.

    Feinstein is neither stupid nor ignorant. Evil, yes, but not stupid nor ignorant.

    I don’t like depending on the

    Republicans for anything, and the way Obamacare passed will seem like normalcy compared to whatever gets done this time around.

  9. ben Says:

    Universal background checks require universal registration. I think any requirement for registration will lead to mass civil disobedience, most of us won’t register. Kevin at TSM won’t register. 90% of gun bloggers won’t register. Then what are they going to do?

  10. Shawn Says:

    We should still bring it upa when writing our reps, but also use it to drive home our opposition to a magazine capacity ban and the ‘gun show loophole’ bills. That just because it isn’t as extreme doesn’t mean that it should not be opposed with as much fervor.

  11. Ron W Says:

    The thing that might happen in such a scenario is to make examples of certain non-comliants with overwhelming force under the pretext of some other small infraction…that is, rule by terror.

    Remember: They went after Randy Weaver for sawing off a shotgun barrel 1/2 too short for someone and then offered him immunity to be an informant. They also use provacateurs to set up those they want to target.

  12. Mike Says:

    Interesting that most of the usual suspects are listed.

    Rockefeller (WV) was a surprise, but then I remembered that he’s announced he won’t stand for re-election. So, naturally, he’s going out with a bang.

    Levin (MI) was also a surprise. I wonder if he’s retiring. If so, his co-sponsoring this garbage might be the first hint that he is out.

  13. somejerk Says:

    Regarding the argument that we won’t register our guns, that’s the point.

    The Dems want to delegitimize white, male, conservatives. You don’t register, you become a felon, subject to repression at a whim. This is an old tune.

  14. Ron W Says:

    Registration? So now the Dems are ready to gut the 4th and 5th Amendments of the Bill of Rights? Oh no, that’s just for gun owners, so it doesn’t count against civil rights.

  15. Will Says:

    AFAIK, Feinstein has a some variation of Fed Marshal’s badge, which is available to all congresscritters, if they wish. That allows her to possess a weapon ANYWHERE in the US. I’ts probably why she gave up her state carry permit.

  16. chris Says:

    Mikee –

    Were Rockefeller and Levin co-sponsors of Feinstein’s gun ban?

    Any other co-sponsors of interest?

  17. mikee Says:

    You meant to ask Mike, who obviously is better informed than me.

    I once got accused on a comment thread of being MikeB302000, who I am NOT, so this confusion with Mike is not only not the first time, but not the worst that has happened to me.
