Skip to comments.Obama, Feinstein reignite fight for gun control after Navy Yard shooting (Surprise!!!!))
Posted on 09/17/2013 8:00:14 AM PDT by yoe
ust hours after the deadly shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, gun control advocates tried to reignite the national debate over gun laws that had only just subsided.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat and a longtime gun control advocate, denounced the litany of massacres over the past few years and asked rhetorically, When will enough be enough?
[snip] The National Rifle Association had no comment on Monday, and pro-gun groups generally take the stance that days of particularly shocking crimes are not the time to discuss policy. Popular conservative blogger and former CNN commentator Erick Erickson admonished the rush to politicize the shooting, saying seriously people, grow up.

Washington, D.C. has excessively heavy gun laws as does the Washington Navy Yard....no amount of law is going to stop someone intent on killing. If gun laws were successful, the killing each week in Chicago would abate don'tcha think? Gangs, Nuts, and criminals is the real problem.
Sure, come back and have some more.
You want a few more state legislators from your party hitting the unemployment line, obviously.
No AR-15 used.
When people finally figure out the lefts gun free zones are dangerous places and demand the right to defend themselves. Not until then will the slaughters end.
If someone wants to kill, they'll find a way to do it. If not guns, they'll use bombs. If not bombs, they'll use gas. The only answer is free will and the Constitutional right to stop them.
As certain as death and taxes. Had personnel at the naval yard been allowed to carry arms, this never would have happened.

Can't let the facts get in the way of their agenda. (You're not suppose to know or talk about this part of the story.)
This communists Democratic Party has to be destroyed.
Apparently, DiFi and OBayMe didn’t hear the Colorado recall results. RATs never learn.
But he did not have an AR-15 Obammy.
What’s an AR 15 Shotgun?
Because anti Bill Of Rights legislation was so popular in Congress this Spring.....
It’s not a matter of them not learning. Obama’s prohibited from
Another term, and DiFi could give a rambling anti gun speech while wearing bandoliers and with an AK strapped to her back and still get reelected.
They just don’t care.
Given the rush to push the AR15 angle, now proven false, the advantage right now is even more with gun rights advocates. We need to exploit it fully. Sociopaths like DiFi can handle being hated and yelled at. They usually can’t handle being mocked and ridiculed.
"Nobody is going to take your damned guns away from you, but a BACKGROUND CHECK will mean that less guns will get into the hands of people who SHOULD NOT HAVE THEM. Right now, you're not even required to show ID in some places to get a gun thanks to the 'gun show loophole'. What's so UNREASONABLE about background checks?!"
"What do you think a 'background check' really consists of? There's some magical oracle of information where we can query whether a person is a lunatic or not? Or a criminal? You have states handing out driver's licenses to illegal aliens who present no other form of ID and get an official driver's license just by signing another document where they swear they are who they say they are. Do you think an 'identity loophole' like that would make a 'background check' more or less valid than a US Military 'Secret' security clearance like the Navy Yard shooter had?"
"Okay, then just forget the whole thing. If background checks won't work, we just need to go door to door sweeping up all the guns."
"You go out to your politicians and demand that. I'll even handcraft you a protest sign which calls for precisely that."
Does that AR-15 shotgun take a thirty round “clip”? :-)
DI-FI ‘I told you so’ ping!
Would anything she proposed have stopped this?
I shut several Liberals up after Newtown by asking them if they were volunteering to go out into Bullitt County KY to go door to door confiscating firearms.
What’s an “automatic AR-15 shotgun?” A figment of Piers Anthony and/or CNN know knowledge of guns headline writers imagination.
They watch videos, they have mental health issues, they eat carrots, etc. Theo only thing in common with these mass killings is _ THEY TAKE PLACE IN A “GUN FREE ZONE”
Well at least the nutjob didn’t use poison gas. If he had, zero and fineswine would be shredding the entire constitution, and assad would be bombing us.
I want one. I NEED one. I can actually buy AMMUNITION for one at Wally World! That’s a plus, you know.
I wonder how it compares to shooting a good semiauto regular ol’ shotgun.
Doesn’t DC already have done of the strictest gun laws in the country?
I assume that with a 16” barrel, it must be rifled.
Opps, looks like an 18+” barrel.
Bet you’re right about the rifling. I don’t have any experience with a rifled shotgun barrel.
At least slugs for rifled 12ga are readily available — I know because I continually trip on ‘em on the shelf while looking for smoothbore slugs. They’re pricy though.
Yes, and the shooting happened in a gun-restricted federal facility. Didn't the guy know that double-dog-down gun-free zones are the safest place in the universe?
How much are we going to take people? They waive anti-terrorist laws so they can give guns to TERRORISTS and then disarm AMERICANS..... Are we just going to lie down and listen to the gulag door slam??????
"Good news!!! We have figured out how to load .50BMG bullets into 12 gauge hulls!!! By using a variation of our patented MassForward technology we are able to make the .50BMG round nearly three and a half inches long when the slug exits the barrel. In plain English a portion of the wad stays with the bullet in flight, like fletching on an arrow. Not everyone can own a .50BMG but now everyone who owns a 12 gauge can throw .50BMG rounds down range. This round is loaded with the M17 Tracer and will burn for 3-4 seconds. We have printed 10″ groups at 125 yards out of a 19″ slug barrel, and had the projectile burn out to 400 Yards"
I don't think they go too fast though.
Meanwhile he’s buying extremists guns to kill government officials:
Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition

No surprise. I never did anything remotely that close in terms of stupid when I ran a chyron.
That thing kinda looks like an April Fool’s joke! Not that I’m knocking the concept.
“In plain English a portion of the wad stays with the bullet in flight”
That’s Brenneke’s claim to fame with their slug ammo.
I’m sure others make similar stuff too. I have some of the Brenneke but I haven’t shot it yet.
I’d like to experiment with packing a shotshell with nickels sometime. It’d still be cheaper than some of this fancy 12ga ammo.
Umm... Dear Difi.... He had a shotgun, and two STOLEN handguns... that he got THERE on base.
Evidently, the poor baby was upset at evil “racists”...
The Brenneke slugs will work fine for either smooth or rifled bore shotguns.
I find this hard to believe, who told him that he was a victim of racists?
And it gets even better...
So...what I really want to know is this - WHO is the Schmucky Little Puke who originally threaded an AR15 meme into the story, and where did it first develop???
“What is an AR 15 shotgun?”
“WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?”
If CNN (etc) said the gunman utilized an BG-23, the usual suspects would demand the immediate outlawing of the BG-23.
At least 3 Democrats would join in introducing such a bill.
Low information voters/people
AR15 makes a better story, its scary sounding, like like the Russian Mob.
Shotgun makes us think of the Beverly Hillbillies. Old Jed hunting Muskrat.
The 12 gauge from hell...
3900 fps from a shotgun? You shoot it, I’ll watch!
Sure, the shooter had an obvious mental health problem. Ban guns, that will fix it.
It's about the crazy people, not the guns.
I’m just grateful he didn’t rent a large dump truck, fill it with sand and then go plowing through (insert targets here).
The biggest threat to our society today is Christian tea-party members buying assault rifles through the gun-show loophole.
The terrible events of yesterday show that we need to crack down on those people.
Ah... the control freaks who can’t quite get their hands around us yet get excited over the sight of blood and certainly did hope for an AR-15 in the mix. It doesn’t really matter who said it. We knew that somebody would. Thieves and liars. I wouldn’t piss on them if they were on fire.
