Harry Reid shoots down Feinstein gun-ban bill
The Washington Times ^ | March 19, 2013 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 03/19/2013 8:44:42 AM PDT by jazusamo

Sen. Dianne Feinstein emerged from a closed-door meeting with Majority Leader Harry Reid on Monday — but her ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines didn’t.

Mr. Reid turned down her attempt to bring her ban on 157 different weapons and ammunition clips aboard the Democratic Party’s comprehensive gun bill, Politico reported.

“My understanding is it will not be [part of the base bill],” said Mrs. Feinstein, California Democrat. “I would like to [see it moved], but the leader has decided not to do it. … You will have to ask him [why].”

Her bill instead will have to go forth separately or as an amendment — and that means it’s probably not going anywhere.

That's one obvious hand waving in our faces.

Where is the other hand? What is it doing?

Wow that’s too bad.
I was hoping to get EVERY senator on record with a vote on this.

Harry: do it for “the children”

They’re not serious. This is all grandstanding for the base. Oddly, I don’t think the base wants gun control either as I know two Democrats who have recently run out and bought their first guns.

"Harry Reid shoots down Feinstein gun-ban bill . . ."

The last time DiFi passed a gun control bill, it led to a Republican takeover of the House and Senate.

Exactly - with this piece of theatre out of the way they can concentrate on “common sense” legislation like universal background checks, aka registration and, hence, confiscation.

This is old time gamesmanship. The Marxists prefer to slowly boil the frog.

First they propose the huge bill, then decline it in favor of the smaller bill to show they are reasonable.
Thus everyone feels like they have had a small victory.

And the Marxist slowly take away your rights.

And Harry remembers that. Right now Harry has his eye on taking the House and keeping the Senate in the mid-terms. He knows a gun bill now is political poison. When/if the Dems control both houses, THEN Harry and DiFi will quickly ban guns. Count on it.

It has served its purpose as cover for the bill they’re actually going to pass.

Here is hoping the House can stop it, because the ‘Pubbie pukes in the Senate won’t.

This was all kind of predictable, the left was just pushing the goal posts while they could.

The one hand got its base all riled up and loving them because they were finally so tough on guns.

The other hand wants to preserve their majority in the senate.

They'll move the goal posts until enough people are fooled by their rhetoric, and then they'll become actual gun grabbers rather than gun grabber wannabes.

Strategy II is now in play.

Tax the living bejeezus out of everything gun related to the point the tax becomes so punitive and the consequences of failing to pay the taxes so high, people will turn in guns.

This of course will not end well. Either way they will get what they want.

‘Her bill instead will have to go forth separately or as an amendment — and that means it’s probably not going anywhere.’

The answer is...it will go in as an amendment to a completely unrelated bill in the middle of the night in a committee session.

Let’s hope this ban stop takes some pressure off of the ammo hoarding, so I can go get some more bricks of .22LR.

Problem is, Harry can’t stop their defeat next year. Gun owners have long memories, and they no the gun grab started in DC by the Dems, and has cost many their rights on the state level.

They will be held to account as though Feinstein’s bill had passed in its entirety.

Nice try Harry!

Harry told her that first we have to register them. Then when we ban them we know where to go. When you get Universal Background Checks you have paperwork on where all guns are.

Say what you want about Reid. But, he has an A+ rating from the NRA, and that is one of the main reasons he is still in the Senate.

Watch and learn grasshopper. The bill will be to for all firearm sales requiring background checks. Swine’s amendment will fail and the Senate will pass a bill that supposedly closes the “gun show loophole”.

Then it will be illegal to sell a firearm without a background check anywhere, any time, and now the local FFL dealer will have a record of the sale.

Then in 5 years when her stupid bill comes up again and it passes they already have the paperwork to know who and where the firearms are, so they can make a midnight visit to confiscate them.

See Current California actions for example of National Confiscation plan.

You are correct maybe Schumers bill about safe gun storage that criminalizes teaching someone to shoot at a informal shooting range ,or loan a buddy a rifle during deer season as unlawful transfer of firearms.

Nah, they know folks do not want this, what Dems want is total control in 2014, then they will ban your guns.

Never ever trust them. With dems, you are only safe until the next election, or until the next Sandy Hook.

Sounds like a problem at the big house, and certainly won't change truth on the ground.

Sad to see the rule of law go by the wayside, but there it is.

I know at least one Dem who hasn’t purchase one yet, but admitted to researching the best guns for defense. When pressed, many they liked had a capacity greater than 10 rounds.
