Camel’s nose, meet tent:
The Daily Caller (Washington, DC): California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein staged a dramatic press conference Thursday on Capitol Hill with 10 weapons at her side and unveiled legislation instituting a government ban on more than 150 types of firearms, including rifles, pistols and shotguns.
Flanked by other anti-gun liberal lawmakers, including New York Sen. Chuck Schumer and Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, Feinstein announced the introduction of the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2013.”
The legislation being pushed by Feinstein — who has long history of calling for gun bans — would prohibit the sale, transfer, importation and manufacture of certain firearms.
During the press event at the Dirksen Senate Office Building, the Democrats described these firearms as “dangerous military-style assault weapons.” The bill would also ban high-capacity ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.
Feinstein said the country’s “weak” gun laws allow massacres like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occur.
“Getting this bill signed into law will be an uphill battle, and I recognize that — but it’s a battle worth having,” Feinstein said in literature handed to reporters at the Thursday event.
First of all (and for about the 8,000th time): if we are trying to reduce violent homicides, then specific types of guns are not the problem:
“Bark once for ‘Yes’, twice for ‘No’, …okay, Rover?”
“Woof, woof, woof…!”
The Left is impervious to logic. They can’t even be bothered to learn the most basic aspects of the items they wish to ban. And yet they persist.
So in the interest of trying to educate the deliberately obtuse, I’ll include the video below. If someone would like to show it to Ms. Feinstein (and help her with the big words), I’d be eternally grateful:
