The Left Is Convinced Americans Won’t Fight For 2nd Amendment Rights

☆ QueenAline 2013/01/08 00:19:16

Once cowed at the thought of provoking Second Amendment supporters,
leftists will soon attempt to ban “assault weapons” (and much more) as
legislation offered by Dianne Feinstein makes its way to the Senate
floor. It seems that D.C. liberals have finally become convinced that
American gun owners are too cowardly, too lazy or too dependent upon the
generosity of Big Brother to fight for their Second Amendment rights.






During the past four years, the gun banning-Left have watched as
American buyers broke sales records in the purchase of semi-automatic
rifles. Opting for these and other powerful, efficient weapons, it is
estimated that some 100 million private citizens are now in possession
of over 300 million firearms. And these numbers continue to grow with
each passing month.


Yet it’s against this backdrop of America’s unprecedented
determination to assert the fundamental permanence of Second Amendment
guarantees that Diane Feinstein, Michael Bloomberg, Barack Obama and
others will choose to implement gun bans, demand the federal
registration of firearms, and even legislate outright confiscation.


Maybe Democrats are confident that fallout from Sandy Hook will
provide the floor votes necessary to disarm the American people. But if
the Left is willing to risk picking this fight with millions of
American gun owners, it must also believe something far more
important—that Americans who have spent years arming themselves against
the ultimate expression of tyranny by their own government–the overthrow
of the Second Amendment– will choose to not fight when the time finally comes.


For decades, the Left have watched Americans simply “lie down” before
every imaginable outrage and legislative assault on our liberty. The
Constitution has been prostituted by power-hungry, America-hating
Marxists in Congress, on the federal bench and in the White House.
Elected officials have laughed when asked to provide Constitutional
authority for the passage of massively unpopular pieces of legislation.
Tax dollars are insolently manipulated to purchase votes, grease the
skids of questionable legislation, and add to the wealth of bureaucrats
and elected officials. And through it all, Americans are robbed of more
and more liberty as we do nothing but “vote ‘em in and cuss ‘em out”
every two years.


Liberals have come to depend upon the willingness of Americans to
subordinate their desire for liberty to the wishes and whims of the
political ruling class. The cowardly are rewarded for relenting while
those with the courage to question dictatorial authority and refuse to
submit are accused of domestic terrorism. And all who press their own
beliefs—or worse, those of the nations’ Founders– are met with ridicule
or intimidation in what was at one time a nation of free, thinking
individuals.






In short, the Left has come to expect cowardice or disinterested
submission from a people trained for decades to accept as given that the
good intentions of their elected betters are sufficient to fulfill the
requirements of constitutional authority. And it’s a safe bet neither
Democrats nor RINO’s will expect anything different from the majority of
Americans this time around as Feinstein and Company legislate last
rites and a funeral for the Second Amendment.


We know what the Left believe. We’ll soon find out if they are right.

They are so dead wrong...it's laughable....real Americans will not let this happen

    Most Americans that own guns will put up some type of resistance to anyone coming to take them.

    Tens of millions out of the more than 200 million people will stand up and fight, using violence, to prevent their rights from being taken.

    Obama will never ban all guns - he's not that stupid. <--- I sure hope that's a true statement.

    If you detain me, my guns have probably been long buried.

    I do not obey unconstitutional law - because there is no reason I should, nor is there any reason for them to be enforced.

    If you kill me, I've probably shot more than one of your people already.

    I am one person. I am a law-abiding citizen. There are tens of millions of people like me.

    A few thousand like me can easily hold out against a government like the US. It happened in Iraq and Afghanistan - guerrilla warfare works against anything. Now, imagine with a hundred thousand people like me - imagine 1/4 of the veterans of Iraq and/or Afghanistan standing up and doing something.

    That street outside your window? It's one law away from becoming a war zone.

    There is very little similarity in the American people and the politicians that represent them in DC. Just because the republicans in congress lack the balls to stand for the constitution, people and nation, does not mean that the people don't. When it comes to the nut-cutting the gun owners will win over the unarmed, panty-wearing, bed-wetters (many of whom are the politicians).

    In reality, there are not enough votes in congress to do anything other than to pick away at the 2nd Amendment, so that is the way they will do it. They have already started diluting the 2nd Amendment and will continue to do it, until it is gone. It is kind of like boiling frogs, the politicians don't like the people getting "jumpy" it could result in them being dragged through the streets and hanged.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IT'S COMING ! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~






    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.)--author of the federal "assault weapon" and "large" ammunition magazine ban of 1994-2004--has said for weeks that she will soon introduce an even more restrictive bill. Leaders in the U.S. Senate have stated that January 22 will be the first day on which new Senate legislation can be proposed, so that is the most likely date for the new, sweeping legislation to be introduced.

    On Dec. 17th, Feinstein said, "I have been working with my staff for over a year on this legislation" and "It will be carefully focused." Indicating the depth of her research on the issue, she said on Dec. 21st that she had personally looked at pictures of guns in 1993, and again in 2012.

    According to a Dec. 27th posting on Sen. Feinstein's website and a draft of the bill obtained by NRA-ILA, the new ban would, among other things, adopt new definitions of "assault weapon" that would affect a much larger variety of firearms, require current owners of such firearms to register them with the federal government under the National Firearms Act, and require forfeiture of the firearms upon the deaths of their current owners.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.)--author of the federal "assault weapon" and "large" ammunition magazine ban of 1994-2004--has said for weeks that she will soon introduce an even more restrictive bill. Leaders in the U.S. Senate have stated that January 22 will be the first day on which new Senate legislation can be proposed, so that is the most likely date for the new, sweeping legislation to be introduced.

    On Dec. 17th, Feinstein said, "I have been working with my staff for over a year on this legislation" and "It will be carefully focused." Indicating the depth of her research on the issue, she said on Dec. 21st that she had personally looked at pictures of guns in 1993, and again in 2012.

    According to a Dec. 27th posting on Sen. Feinstein's website and a draft of the bill obtained by NRA-ILA, the new ban would, among other things, adopt new definitions of "assault weapon" that would affect a much larger variety of firearms, require current owners of such firearms to register them with the federal government under the National Firearms Act, and require forfeiture of the firearms upon the deaths of their current owners. Some of the changes in Feinstein's new bill are as follows:
    •Reduces, from two to one, the number of permitted external features on various firearms. The 1994 ban permitted various firearms to be manufactured only if they were assembled with no more than one feature listed in the law. Feinstein's new bill would prohibit the manufacture of the same firearms with even one of the features.

    •Adopts new lists of prohibited external features. For example, whereas the 1994 ban applied to a rifle or shotgun the "pistol grip" of which "protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon," the new bill would drastically expand the definition to include any "grip . . . or any other characteristic that can function as a grip." Also, the new bill adds "forward grip" to the list of prohibiting features for rifles, defining it as "a grip located forward of the trigger that functions as a pistol grip." Read literally and in conjunction with the reduction from two features to one, the new language would apply to every detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifle. At a minimum, it would, for example, ban all models of the AR-15, even those developed for compliance with California's highly restrictive ban.

    • Carries hyperbole further than the 1994 ban. Feinstein's 1994 ban listed "grenade launcher" as one of the prohibiting features for rifles. Her 2013 bill goes even further into the ridiculous, by also listing "rocket launcher." Such devices are restricted under the National Firearms Act and, obviously, are not standard components of the firearms Feinstein wants to ban. Perhaps a subsequent Feinstein bill will add "nuclear bomb," "particle beam weapon," or something else equally far-fetched to the features list.
    •Expands the definition of "assault weapon" by including:

    --Three very popular rifles: The M1 Carbine (introduced in 1941 and for many years sold by the federal government to individuals involved in marksmanship competition), a model of the Ruger Mini-14, and most or all models of the SKS.

    --Any "semiautomatic, centerfire, or rimfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds," except for tubular-magazine .22s.

    --Any "semiautomatic, centerfire, or rimfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches," any "semiautomatic handgun with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds," and any semi-automatic handgun that has a threaded barrel.

    •Requires owners of existing "assault weapons" to register them with the federal government under the National Firearms Act (NFA). The NFA imposes a $200 transfer tax per firearm, and requires an owner to submit photographs and fingerprints to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), to inform the BATFE of the address where the firearm will be kept, and to obtain the BATFE's permission to transport the firearm across state lines.

    •Prohibits the transfer of "assault weapons." Owners of other firearms, including those covered by the NFA, are permitted to sell them or pass them to heirs. However, under Feinstein's new bill, "assault weapons" would remain with their current owners until their deaths, at which point they would be forfeited to the government.

    •Prohibits the domestic manufacture and the importation of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The 1994 ban allowed the importation of such magazines that were manufactured before the ban took effect. Whereas the 1994 ban protected gun owners from errant prosecution by making the government prove when a magazine was made, the new ban includes no such protection. The new ban also requires firearm dealers to certify the date of manufacture of any >10-round magazine sold, a virtually impossible task, given that virtually no magazines are stamped with their date of manufacture.

    •Targets handguns in defiance of the Supreme Court. The Court ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects the right to have handguns for self-defense, in large part on the basis of the fact handguns are the type of firearm "overwhelmingly chosen by American society for that lawful purpose." Semi-automatic pistols, which are the most popular handguns today, are designed to use detachable magazines, and the magazines "overwhelmingly chosen" by Americans for self-defense are those that hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, Feinstein's list of nearly 1,000 firearms exempted by name (see next paragraph) contains not a single handgun. Sen. Feinstein advocated banning handguns before being elected to the Senate, though she carried a handgun for her own personal protection.

    •Contains a larger piece of window dressing than the 1994 ban. Whereas the 1994 ban included a list of approximately 600 rifles and shotguns exempted from the ban by name, the new bill's list is increased to nearly 1,000 rifles and shotguns. But most of the guns on the list either wouldn’t be banned in the first place, or would already be exempted by other provisions. On the other hand, the list inevitably misses every model of rifle and shotgun that wasn’t being manufactured or imported in the years covered by the reference books Sen. Feinstein’s staff consulted. That means an unknown number of absolutely conventional semi-auto rifles and shotguns, many of them out of production for decades, would be banned under the draft bill.

    The Department of Justice study: On her website, Feinstein claims that a study for the DOJ found that the 1994 ban resulted in a 6.7 percent decrease in murders. To the contrary, this is what the study said: "At best, the assault weapons ban can have only a limited effect on total gun murders, because the banned weapons and magazines were never involved in more than a modest fraction of all gun murders. Our best estimate is that the ban contributed to a 6.7 percent decrease in total gun murders between 1994 and 1995. . . . However, with only one year of post-ban data, we cannot rule out the possibility that this decrease reflects chance year-to-year variation rather than a true effect of the ban. Nor can we rule out effects of other features of the 1994 Crime Act or a host of state and local initiatives that took place simultaneously."

    "Assault weapon" numbers and murder trends: From the imposition of Feinstein's "assault weapon" ban (Sept. 13, 1994) through the present, the number of "assault weapons" has risen dramatically. For example, the most common firearm that Feinstein considers an "assault weapon" is the AR-15 rifle, the manufacturing numbers of which can be gleaned from the BATFE's firearm manufacturer reports, available here. From 1995 through 2011, the number of AR-15s--all models of which Feinstein's new bill defines as "assault weapons"--rose by over 2.5 million. During the same period, the nation's murder rate fell 48 percent, to a 48-year low. According to the FBI, 8.5 times as many people are murdered with knives, blunt objects and bare hands, as with rifles of any type.

    Traces: Feinstein makes several claims premised on firearm traces, hoping to convince people that her 1994 ban reduced the (already infrequent) use of "assault weapons" in crime. However, traces do not indicate how often any type of gun is used in crime. As the Congressional Research Service and the BATFE have explained, not all firearms that are traced have been used in crime, and not all firearms used in crime are traced. Whether a trace occurs depends on whether a law enforcement agency requests that a trace be conducted. Given that existing "assault weapons" were exempted from the 1994 ban and new "assault weapons" continued to be made while the ban was in effect, any reduction in the percentage of traces accounted for by "assault weapons" during the ban, would be attributable to law enforcement agencies losing interest in tracing the firearms, or law enforcement agencies increasing their requests for traces on other types of firearms, as urged by the BATFE for more than a decade.
