Feinstein Gun Control Bill to Exempt Government Officials
Weekly Standard ^

Posted on 01/25/2013 5:27:23 AM PST by Perdogg

Not everyone will have to abide by Senator Dianne Feinstein's gun control bill. If the proposed legislation becomes law, government officials and others will be exempt.

"Mrs. Feinstein's measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel," the Washington Times reports.

Laws for thee but not for me. Why do I as a law abiding citizen have to give up the weapon that I have had for many years and never once fired a shot in anger?

Of course, this goes right along with the 3rd-world banana republic style government that Obama has brought us. One set of rules for El Presidente and his cabinet, another set of rules for the great unwashed.

Every time I think it’s impossible for me to be more disgusted by our politicians, they manage to exceed expectations.

Disgusting people, the lot of them.

Duh. Did you really expect Her Highness Senator Feinstein to live under the same laws as the rest of us?

CMP — I have this one bookmarked...and yes - will be following suit as you did...probably multiple ones...also - the K98 from Mitchell’s Mausers for $500 — is another accurate and well made rifle...those 8mm rounds are like shoulder firing an 88 Flak

But of course, "all animals are equal but some animals are more equal then others"

Our betters in government do not want the serfs (former US citizens) to be armed. Not surprising at all, seldom has the conqueror allowed the conquered arms.

Why do people in POWER always want to declare the rest of us all incompetent?
We do not need, we do not want, to be wards of the state.
We are not serfs or indentured servants, but that's what they want us to be.
We are FREE Men and Women, adults, and we NEED our guns to make sure we stay that way.

and retired law enforcement personnel

I can understand (but still not like) the idea of current law officers being allowed otherwise prohibited weapons, but why do they always excuse retired cops? The current ones are covered by internal affairs and psychological evaluations. The retired ones are no longer subject to department discipline, no longer have colleagues keeping an eye on them to see if they are muttering to themselves all the time.

Another word for a retired cop is civilian.

Why do I as a law abiding citizen have to give up the weapon that I have had for many years and never once fired a shot in anger?

Liberals love to cite Blackstone's Ratio, that it is better to allow 10 criminals escape than allow one innocent to suffer.

Unless you are a conservative. Then, making the innocent suffer is valid because they do not see conservatives as anything other than criminals.

Maybe if a bill like this gets signed into law the owners of these weapons should turn them all in to the authorities in Washington on the same day. 40 million gun owners bringing their newly illegal weapons to Washington, along with the ammo they will no longer need would be a patriotic gesture. I’m sure our overlords would like to be present for such a show of mass obedience so we’d have to make sure the congress and the administration would be in town for the event. April 18 or July 4 might be a good date for the festivities. Any thoughts?

I’m not some jackass like every liberal I’ve ever talked to, who throws around the word “freedom” as though it’s mere mention will make me free or saying it over and over will endow understanding of it. I actually understand that had I been born in some worthless shithole in the middle-east, I would have already been murdered for having been born with gender dysphoria.

My life is a gift from God, but the fact that I’m still alive is a tolerance by my fellow citizens and a testament to the document we’ve agreed to live under.

I am morally certain where my line is. And no one should cross it: nothing on Earth is more dangerous than “certain”.

government officials and others will be exempt.

So the law will affect the law-abiding common folk but the not the lawless -- criminals and government officials.

How appropriate is that.

My response to any legislation coming from Washington or liberals these days: You First.

If sexy black guns are evil, you disarm first. If they serve some law enforcement purpose, then obviously they aren’t inherently evil and thus do not require banning in the first place.

If concealed carry is inherently evil, you disarm first. Obviously your security has no need of hiding their weapons since it serves no useful purpose - if that’s wrong, than the same applies to the people as well.

If there’s a gun free zone, but you still insist on your security having guns anyway, then you don’t believe that gun free zones work, and thus such limitations shouldn’t apply to the people either.

Diane, you are a citizen of the United States, just as your security teams are. You want to push forward this bill, I want you to go out in front of the cameras and say, “Well, actually, yes, we are more equal than other citizens, and thus deserve special benefits and privileges.” And then you’ll point to the place in the constitution that permits this.

But you won’t. And the scary part is that there’s not one major media reporter who will challenge these yahoos on this or any issue.

You watch as this debate goes forward. It won’t be long and the gun control debate will soon to labeling gun owners as domestic terrorists.

Then they can arrest you, deprive you of your right to due process and send you off to the gulag to never be heard from again.

Sounds familiar to some history I read about before they destroyed all the factual history books...
