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:

This Detroit mother-of-two needs to spend a few hours at the shooting range to improve her accuracy, but all-in-all this goes in the books as a “win”.

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.

I try not to watch Morgan’s program; it’s simply too predictable. He will make a snotty assertion, and then go about bullying his guests to fit that assertion.
Now, do other interviewers do this? Sure. Are they as annoying as Piers manages to be? For the most part, …no.
For instance, when Martin Bashir or Andrea Mitchell do this, you are already aware of their abbreviated grasp on reality. It’s pretty hard to have your feelings hurt when you’re being insulted by a moron.
But Piers is not a moron. He’s a reasonably smart guy, which makes his behavior infinitely worse. An intelligent person who conducts his affairs in this way is contemptible on an entirely different level, as Ed points out very well at HotAir.
Anyway, the clip below runs approximately 14 minutes, but you’ll get a taste of how completely Ben Shapiro destroys Morgan after just the first five.
Yeah, I’m a huge, unapologetic Steyn fan: sue me.
Have you read his books? As far as I’m concerned, if someone doesn’t enjoy his writing style, insight & wit, well…there may be no hope for them.
This post? Great stuff; be sure to read it all.

A week ago on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” David Gregory brandished on screen a high-capacity magazine.
To most media experts, a “high-capacity magazine” means an ad-stuffed double-issue of Vanity Fair with the triple-page perfume-scented pullouts. But apparently in America’s gun-nut gun culture of gun-crazed gun kooks, it’s something else entirely, and it was this latter kind that Mr. Gregory produced in order to taunt Wayne LaPierre of the NRA.

” Has the rate of random mass shootings in the United States increased? Over the past 30 years, the answer is definitely yes. It is also true that the total U.S. homicide rate has fallen by over half since 1980, and the gun homicide rate has fallen along with it. Today, Americans are safer from violent crime, including gun homicide, than they have been at any time since the mid-1960s.
Why the increase? It cannot be because gun-control laws have become more lax. Before the 1968 Gun Control Act, there were almost no federal gun-control laws. The exception was the National Firearms Act of 1934, which set up an extremely severe registration and tax system for automatic weapons and has remained in force for 78 years.
Since gun controls today are far stricter than at…

I’m in the middle of writing something that’s going waaaay too long right now, and need time to cut it down to size. So, here’s a very short video that I was saving for just such an occasion.
It’s courtesy of Chuck Woolery and covers the recent headlines on gun bans and our 2nd Amendment rights, all with Chuck’s trademark humor and logic (**video AFTER the jump).
