In Wake of Texas Church Shooting, Democrats Introduce Gun Prohibition Bill
Guns in the News ^ | 11-09-2017 | Tim Brown

Prohibition didn't work in the 20th century because alcohol really isn't anything the government should have a say so in and people knew it.  All it did, like the "war on drugs" was drive a black market and call something a crime that was not a crime.

Enter gun prohibition.

That is what every single piece of legislation that seeks to ban arms of any kind is, prohibition.

In the wake of the Texas church shooting, gun grabbing Communist Democrats have introduced a bill that will not do one that that would stop any shooting and it certainly would not have stopped the one in Texas this past Sunday.

A coalition of about two dozen Senate Democrats, led by Senator Dianne "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in" Feinstein (D-CA), have proposed a ban on what they call "assault weapons," which are nothing more than semi-automatic rifles that look like military weapons, but operate differently.

“We’re introducing an updated Assault Weapons Ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for debate and a vote,” Feinstein said in a statement.

That tool will not reduce anything and she knows it.

She will also ensure that government agents will be fully armed to the teeth with fully automatic weapons.

After the Vegas shooting last month, Feinstein made irrelevant arguments against bump stocks as though banning bump stocks would stop people from bump firing semi-automatic rifles.

That ban would have stopped nothing.

And she admitted it wouldn't have stopped anything.

I’d rather live with an abundance of guns in unknown and unknowable hands than with any form of progressivism, especially the Cultural Marxist looney bin sort that is the face of progressivism these days.

You real about Prohibition and there was more drinking and crime than before; guess what’ll happen should the same thing happen with firearms? They’ll all magically disappear?

Just another classic example of the insanity brought on by liberalism.
They have no business in govt. They need to be in insane asylums.

Yes, it’s long past time for ALL AMERICANS to take responsibility for their own personal safety. The SCOTUS has already ruled explicitly that it is NOT the govt’s responsibility for any individual’s safety.

Protect yourselves and your loved ones. It’s your RIGHT. Use it or lose it.

After the Republicans hand the Rats the House and Senate next year and POTUS Trump won’t be able to get a damn thing accomplished, the Rat POTUS Elected in 2020 working with the Rats running the House and Senate will do anything and everything they can do to void the Second Amendment.

Todays Democrats are no better than the CPUSA and there are enough Useful Idiots, Illegal Invaders, Dead People and Felons to make their dream a reality.

As always, I hope I am 180 Degrees off base, but the Republicans are doing nothing to make me think any differently.

You’re a little off, but not much. They are the party of foreigners pretending to be Americans and trying to take over the country. They have got to be destroyed.

Our Second Amendment is not about legalizing drugs.

As a Jewess on the US, I can only point out that the number of women who allegedly DATED, but had no sex with, Roy Moore is EXACTLY the same number who accused President Clinton of FORCIBLE RAPE, a FAR more serious offense. Now we know why all REAL Americans put our 2nd Amendment FIRST. Just sayin’!
