As noted earlier, it didn’t take long for Obama’s reelection to trigger a new assault on our indispensible right to bear arms. Dianne Feinstein of the Land of Fruits and Nuts couldn’t even wait until Tuesday:
A few days before Barack Obama’s reelection on Tuesday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) began getting ready to introduce legislation to bring back the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. …
The law “would essentially ban thousands of firearms and require gun owners to turn them over to the Federal government,” Slavo writes.
With Obama, who supports the ban, in the White House for another term and the Democrats fully in control of the Senate, Feinstein will most likely be able to introduce the legislation. If any trouble is encountered in the Republican-held House of Representatives, then gun control advocates should fear not, as Obama would most likely issue an executive order to get around it as he’s done in the past when he doesn’t get his way.
The rampant crime that invariably accompanies liberal rule will be used as a pretext. It is bogus:
As has been reported, so-called assault weapons are used in a very minute percentage of crime, being used in only about one percent of gun crimes and 0.20 percent of all violent crime, and the ban in no way affected violent crime while it was law.
Banning “assault weapons” is of course only an interim step toward the obvious goal of banning anything that might be used by the last Americans to defend themselves against the authoritarian collectivists who rule us. Next comes banning clips that hold more than seven bullets, then comes banning semiautomatic pistols, then comes banning all pistols, then comes rifles, then comes knives, then comes blunt instruments, et cetera.
