Here we go again.
In early 2013, Senator Dianne Feinstein was at the forefront of an effort to institute a government ban on more than 150 types of firearms, including rifles, pistols and shotguns. Thankfully, that legislation was shot down (…pun very much intended…).
But barely a year later she’s back, and singing the same ol’ tune:
Gotta hand it to her, though: she may have the approximate mental acuity of a cabbage leaf, but she certainly knows how to appeal to her base:
(via the Daily Caller) – California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein is circulating a letter on Capitol Hill calling once again for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and asking for President Barack Obama to keep his State of the Union promise to make 2014 a “year of action.
Citing the Gun Control Act of 1968, Feinstein states, “In recent years… importers of firearms have taken advantage of ATF’s interpretation of the ‘sporting purposes’ test to evade the import ban.”
Although Feinstein recognizes that the firearms are designed for civilian use and never manufactured or used by any standing army, she maintained that “many semiautomatic firearms on the market today do not have a military origin but are modeled closely after military firearms.”
In this case, it seems that the overly-addled senator from California is requesting we rid ourselves of these firearms because they… look vaguely military-ish. Ummm, how does this even come close to making any logical sense? Even for Dianne, this is pretty dumb.
So in an effort to once again remind Ms. Feinstein of the Constitutional illogic of her rediscovered jihad against guns, I’m including an old video we used a loooong time ago from Chuck Woolery. It’s funny, sure, but Chuck easily makes more sense in five minutes than Di-Fi has in her 20+ years in the Senate.
A low bar to clear, I agree, but there you go:
