Feinstein Says Reid Stopping Assault Weapons Ban Is A ‘Betrayal’
Freedom Outpost ^ | 20 March 2013 | Tim Brown

Posted on 03/20/2013 6:55:35 PM PDT by Windflier

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) pretty much dumped Senator Dianne Feinstein’s assault weapons ban bill, leaving her feeling a bit betrayed. In fact, it is questionable that a serious background check will make it to the Senate floor.

Feinstein’s response to Reid’s decision was classic. She told CNN, “What Senator Reid told me is that I would have an opportunity for a vote. I take him at his word. I told him also that it would be my intention to separate out the prohibition on the future, manufacture, transfer, sales, and possession of large ammunition-feeding devices of more than ten bullets. I asked him if this could be part of a package. He said no. And I took away from that meeting the belief that we would have a vote on the full bill, and a vote on ammunition-feeding devices of more than ten bullets.”

“This is very important to me and I’m not going to lay down and play dead,” she continued. “I think the American people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. It’s aimed to protect children, to protect schools and malls. It’s aimed to dry up the supply of these over time. And it came out on a 10-8 vote of the Judiciary Committee. Not to give me a vote on this would be a major betrayal of trust.”

Harry probably kept feeding her office various positive comments, and then in the swiftness of one minute....dropped her enthusiasm a thousand feet. If I was Mitch....I’d stop by her office tomorrow, and just drop off a bottle of Kentucky’s finest bourbon and utter the phrase....better luck next time.

So can Senators be citizen arrested for crimes against the Constitution and the citizenry?

There will be an effort to attach the ban to an all or nothing coninuing resolution that will result in dead puppies, snarfblats breeding strangely and such, should it fail.

The GOP will have no other choice but to do the work of the people and keep the lights on....

Same poop, different pooper. Oh and it will be done mid holiday weekend at about 3 AM.

Maybe she'll run into Bubba in the Senate corridors and he'll tell her to 'put some ice on that, sweetheart'.

Betrayal?

She’s been betraying the American people for twenty years, with the morals of a neglected sixth grader, having sworn to God to uphold and protect the Constitution. Wait til he lets her know what her act of betrayal really looks like

Reid is making a political calculation that it is better to kill it now than to bring it up for vote and be embarrassed at the lack of support from his own party.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

prohibition on the future, manufacture, transfer, sales, and possession of large ammunition-feeding devices of more than ten bullets.

And they keep saying that no one is coming after your guns. To which I reply, "YET!"

Or more likely, a million federales. Which'd be just about all of 'em.

Keep eyes peeled.... this is a head fake. Buried in all the commentary is HOW the 1994 ban happened. It was an Amendment to another bill approved by voice vote..

This crap isn’t over... and really, never will be. Be on the lookout. Keep up the pressure call your Senators....particularly and your House Reps.. big time, and all the time.

This is far from over... these people do not give up, and Harry Reid is a slick operator. About which see what idiot Biden is continuing to say... for the smiley media types.
JIVE folks.... this is all the marbles....being what they REALLY want...registration, mandatory private sale background checks... which is proxy for databasing and targeting for the “domestic threat” estimate.

Please stay on top of this. ALERT!

Sure he is, and the old cow, DiFi, knows full well that a lot of Commie Senators are up for re-election in 2014, who can't touch something this hot with a ten foot pole.

She's been in the Senate long enough to know how this works. She knew going in, that gun control is the biggest hot button issue in the country. She knows that a lot of members of both houses are going to have to commit political suicide to pass the sort of legislation she wants.

Maybe she's just gotten so old and senile that it just doesn't register anymore. Like some of the old bulls on our side, she may have forgotten where the 'line' is, and will piss off her constituents without even realizing it.

Or, maybe she knows exactly what she's doing. Head fake, anyone?

“I think the American people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation.” blah blah blah.

Maybe she’s missed a few things.

Things like the fact that applications for gun permits in Newtown, Conn. are up. The fact that gun sales are through the roof around the country. The act that polls do not support her agenda.

Feinstein et al are in a bubble talking to themselves. They are clueless. As far as “betrayal” ha! back to ya, we believed you meant your oath.
