NBC read the writing on the wall, too:
Getting an outright ban through a divided Congress in the face of opposition from the National Rifle Association and other groups is unlikely, and the fight is likely to focus on other measures, like the background checks and limits on magazine size.
Bidens comments came hours after Senate Democrats, led by California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, displayed various assault weapons at a Capitol Hill press conference. Feinstein introduced legislation Thursday to ban 158 specific types of those guns.
People (mostly women) think they're friggin' machine guns...'cuz they saw 3 minutes of Rambo!!
Never underestimate the cowardice of the GOP.
I hate to spoil their fun but my bet is that Di Fi goes 0 for 3 on this one.
Rep. John W. Patman added: "The people have a right to keep arms; therefore, if we should have some Executive who attempted to set himself up as dictator or king, the people can organize themselves together and, with the arms and ammunition they have, they can properly protect themselves. . . ."
This only means that we need to be carefully waching what the other hand is doing. It’s a common tactic for the left to throw something outrageous out there so that while people are focussing on that, they can quietly get on with the business of passing other, less “controversial” legislation, such as a national database, or other “bureaucratic” sounding legislation. Later on, when the frog (the American people) have become used to the temperature turned up one more degree, out they come again with the other stuff. They never stop, they never give in, they only stall for time and take one step backwards in order to to take 3 steps forward later after all the attention has gone elsewhere. Just look how they’ve managed things exactly that way with amnesty and the sodomite agenda.
“While there was arguably more impetus for gun control after Newtown than there has been in years,...”
Yeah, by the media. Talk about astroturf.
Universal background checks are unacceptable, too. It is noting more than a way for the government to fill in the gaps of their illegal database.

- The smartest people in the room discussing Obamacare.....
The passage of Obamacare was the signal that anything can happen, and nobody can ever relax.
We were sure the magic negro could not beat Hillary WRONG
We were sure the obomination could not pass a socialist health care plan WRONG
We were sure Public Enemy #1 could not be re-elected with unemployment so high (and even higher than the government and media told us) WRONG.
So how on God’s green earth are we to be sure King Kenyan cannot finish the destruction of the 2nd Amendment? Come on, after all, we allowed them to pass law after law after law which infringed on an Amendment which specifically states “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” and we are supposed to believe he and his propaganda machine in the MSM will not win?
No, we will lose the 2nd Amendment and very likely before the end of this vermin’s term.
With the EPA about to be given free reign on banning lead ammunition we should all realize why the EPA and other agencies have been buying up ammo like crazy. They are preparing for what we do not have the backbone to do.
To the Founders, I apologize for failing to retain what you gave us.
” Im much less concerned, quite frankly, about what you call an assault weapon than I am about magazines and the number of rounds that can be held in a magazine,
So if I carry a gun with a 15 round mag and fire only 4 rounds during the commision of a crime, mag capacity wasnt a factor right? I bet hoods rarely fire more than 2-3 rounds no matter what they are carrying.
Well their psyops worked. Benghazi is off the public’s radar and Hilary gets a pass. Perhaps we can find some other topic to discuss for the next four years.
Quite a few feminist organizations (including corporate women’s organizations) behind the divorce/cohabitation regime comprised the “Million Mom March” against the Second Amendment a few years ago. Biden has tried to work quite a bit for that constituency. This time around, a few global business moguls are also in the effort. That’s why we see so much noise about it.
But most voters by far are against gun control, so the issue is poison to politicians who are watched. Watch their votes closely. List them. Remember them for the next elections. Write to members of Congress and state assemblies. Let them know the consequence of losing elections, should they vote in favor of any compromise.
We are being played. Now the anti’s can propose “common sense” legislation on guns. This AW garbage is a head fake.
“When it comes to the assault weapons ban, Biden and Democrats like Feinstein are setting expectations somewhere between not going to happen and unlikely. And thats probably about where they should be.”
And while the Obama et al race on to other issues to commandeer, their opposition remains paralyzed preparing for a grand fight which won’t happen.
