“In extremis, I may be old, but I’ll still be able to vote from the rooftops. If they are foolish enough to push the issue, I’ll do my best to make my last ballots count.”
Wow! Money quote!
I want all voters IDd and fingerprinted. Feinstein can chew on that for a while.
With a bus out front to take into custody all those with outstanding warrants. In Atlanta alone, you would need a line of buses bigger than the high school at 3 PM.
Sorry, Ron but you are mistaken. My brother-in-law has lived there for 25+ years and he has to “register” per the link below. So, you are either ignorant of the sorry law, violating the law, or misleading readers of this thread. Not meaning to offend, but incorrect info needs to be challenged.
Boats are treacherous things!
Doesn’t FOPA effectively ban gun registration, except for machine guns and silencers?
And how do you know I haven't already done it?
Maybe it was the gun store policy, I don't know but I remember having to do it.
As an aside, the gun shop I am referring to was B & B in No. Hollywood. It's the same shop the cops went to to get heavier arms in the B of A robbery and subsequent shoot out.
Concealed carry laws are probably one reason, plus the idea that certain guns might be banned, but if you already own one, you will be "grandfathered."
People might be surprised at how many "little old ladies" have a gun in the house.
Nevada is one of the best States for gun laws, Clark Co, (Las Vegas) is the only County that requires hand gun registration.
Stopping sale or transfer takes the value - my investment- out of these objects.
It’s a taking without compensation, since I can’t sell.
I don’t think they value the rule of law as much as your post attributes to them...
If they’ll violate the 2nd, why not the 4th or 5th?
Run along and so something in the face of tyranny.
Secret workshops. Start making them. Now.
Change the mood, and people will stop buying voluntarily. That’s how you deal effectively with a “powder keg”. Ban guns, and you increase the mood. American Spring is coming.

I need the cash, and besides, I always wanted to war profiteer.
Maybe Diane and her commie cohorts can invent a condom to stop the spread.
here’s a lady that would be glad to help:
OK, I know I’ll be flamed, but here goes...
First, a disclaimer: I am not a gun owner, nor am I a member of the NRA. I *AM* a conservative. I *do* support the Second Amendment. I just didn’t grow up in a family that owned guns or did any hunting. The only guns I have ever fired in my life are cap guns, squirt guns, and a BB gun once at some of those fake duck targets at a county fair when I was about 8.
That being said, I am asking a sincere question: What is the problem with banning assault weapons? Why would anyone need them? I’m looking to the gun owners and those who really understand the Second Amendment to educate me, please.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
What good can a hand gun do against an army? Not much. And I do understand that if a law is passed, only the law-abiding will comply. I think you’ve answered my questions. Thanks.
the government should fear the public, Fienstein and Obamster should be looking over their shoulder and checking their nasty gargoyle faces for red lazer dots constantly because of the way they are acting
the reason big government fears AR's is because they know this
To: Frankenfeinstein, Obama , and the rest of You evil, communist/democrats,
If you want take our guns and with it our freedom and rights then you will have to take them by force.
We are here in Louisiana, come and take them,
the Men of Louisiana
You have to understand that a so-called "assault weapon" is no different operationally than other semiautomatic firearms. The so-called "assault weapon" isn't inherently any more lethal than a semiautomatic Browning .30-06 or .45 Glock .
No flames here.
Well for one thing “assault weapon” is a name Congress made up and applied to one of the most popular target rifles (think National Match course and Camp Perry). Very common plinking guns as well. People own something like 18 million of them, and hundreds of millions of mags for them.
Assault weapon is a label only, it has nothing to do with reality.
I looked at 2010 stats and found that there were 358 or so murders from rifles of all sorts, which means that the “assault weapons” are NOT being used to spray death upon the hapless innocents as the government suggests is happening. The same year there were over 1700 stabbings, fo a little perspective.
Other than that, there have been times when Americans, civilians, had to engage multiple targets. Let’s say you go outside and find that four gangbangers, three with baseball bats, are attacking your kid. A couple 20 round mags is completely appropriate because you are not going to land effective stopping shots on all three with a six-round revolver or 10 round 9mm.
I also believe that these are appropriate anti-tyrrany devices (if they weren’t the government would not lie about them). If you counter with “the government has tanks, F15s and nukes”, I’d have to concede- after all we are winning in Afghanistan and Iraq, we won in Nam and Korea and Somalia and Haiti with the tanks, planes and nukes. I don’t think the USG could stand up to a civilian force of a million, in other words.
Here are two quotes from Thomas Jefferson:
“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” —
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
And read the link about the “handgun against an Army” - it is good.
I wont flame you. I suggest that you go and read the history of the 2nd Amendment. I suggest that you read the Founders views on people owning arms.
Above all, the Founders wanted the citizens to be well armed in order to overthrow the Federal government if it became tyrannical.
Our Founders would have absolutely no issue with citizens owning so called assault weapons.
It is depressing that someone would even need to ask. It’s like asking why would banning the internet really be bad, since we still have newspapers for the 1st.
SSDD. She has to do this because it keeps her queer constituents slobbering. Job security. Even she knows it doesn’t have to pass to keep her relevant in their eyes.
Good, I thought you were more cognizant than to take agencies of or 'government for the people' at their word.
“... Senator Ive worked hard for that title Dianne Feinstein.”
That was Babs Boxer.
Did you go to the link and actually read the article?
I think I'll get mine refinished like this, so it's not a "Bad Black Gun".
How much do you wanna bet that during these second background checks, they’ll conveniently find something in your background that disqualifies you?
Some of those parts remind me of the old fashioned hair rollers.
Here’s the problem with outlawing semi-automatic rifles and magazines. The Founders put the 2A in the Bill of Rights because they wanted “the people” to be better armed than “the army.” We had just fought Britain because THEY wanted to disarm us. Where the army is better armed than the people, (see Soviet Russia, Communist China() there is tyranny. Where the people are better armed than the government, there is freedom. Perhaps you think the Federal Government should be our lords and masters and take our arms from us?
If the American Spring started up you know they would fire up those lawn mowers to break up the Tea Party
Every friday at 2:30 pm one or two Apaches fly over downtown Los Angeles for some reason
B-L-O-W—M-E you wanton pompous self-centered uppity shrew.
Well, long time ago when in the army back in the days of few black belts I had my fingers,palms, toes, feet, knee caps, forehead( yep) AND elbows printed. Don't know if they were serious to this day or they just wanted to make me wipe off all the black ink! There was a lot of laughter but now, hmmm I would wonder about intentions.
Why should we allow government bureaucrats to decide who can own “assault” guns or whatever? You like democrats are for empowering government while at the same time dis-empowering the individual when the individual is small and the government is already so huge and powerful. You want to turn the U.S.A into a communist nation because the media reports on some stupid mass shooting. the threat is the media and the government not our gun rights , not our freedom , not responsible gun owners who have the right to defend their home against criminals and to have assault guns to defend against a tyranical government.
You liberals are letting the frickin media control you and brainwash you.
Thousands if not millions of Americans have been tortured, murdered and raped because they didn't have a gun to protect themselves.
Each year Thousands die in the U.S.A from just falling down. The killings from mass shootings are statistically non-existant in a country of 300 million. Millions die from heart disease. Thousands of victims of rape and murder not from guns but things like baseball bats.
Also the media is what causes the mass shooters to shoot to w seek fame and to become the next star in their sick minds. The media makes these mass shooters world famous and household names when they can report them it but don't have to identify them in order to not cause copy cats but they do so knowingly.
in order to qualify to be a politician you must be a silver spoon popular dork with a soft belly and pudgy fingers, with no real life experience at suffering , very few exceptions to that rule
“The Democrats and the communists are running scared. And they need be! Some Americans are getting real damn mad.”
Democrats and communists is a bit redundant.
Obviously they’re scared: they read the news as well and know that those big, nasty black guns can’t be purchased anymore. Because every single one has been snapped up by eager buyers!
They prefer their peasantry to be unarmed.
I know what you mean. I had to check thoroughly before I believed it was real.
“Perhaps you think the Federal Government should be our lords and masters and take our arms from us?”
Yes he does and so do other liberals/democrats. They don’t have a clue to how the media is manipulating them.
Will the GOP fight it? That is the question.
