Heartless witch Feinstein, gleefully dances on corpses
How do we know Senator Feinstein is a heartless witch of a political whore?
Because her cries of "for the children" are drowned out by the blasts from Obama's drones, drones that have killed many times over the numbers of children killed in the US in mass shooting attacks.
If she or any other liberal gave a damn about children then where, I ask, is the concern for the deaths by the hundreds of thousands now for our wars of petroleum access?
Does she somehow place more value on little kids in the US over a bunch of kids in Muslim countries killed with our taxes, and if so is that "racism" I would say - yes.
The title of her bill will be:
"Stopping the spread of deadly assault weapons"
In January, Senator Feinstein will introduce a bill to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition feeding devices.

Summary of 2013 legislation:
Following is a summary of the 2013 legislation (with additions* on the real effects on gun owners):
1. Bans the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
120 specifically-named firearms;
Certain other semiautomatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine and have one or more military characteristics; and
Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds*.
* In Red is the real crux of the issue, magazines of standard capacity and scary looking rifles, of course all but the ignorant understand that function does not change with the external look of the rifle nor does it's lethality. Sadly the idea for banning magazines came from none other than Bill Ruger himself trying to protect sales for his pathetic cheap nock off rifle the mini-14 to review this see treachery of Ruger.
2. Strengthens the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and various state bans by:
Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test*;
Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test; and
Banning firearms with “thumbhole stocks” and “bullet buttons” to address attempts to “work around” prior bans*.
*The "characteristics test" was basically superficial and is the basic reason the original "assault weapon" bill had NO EFFECT on crime. The named characteristics are: Telescoping or folding stock, pistol grip, grenade launch adaptor, magazine outside of the pistol grip, threaded barrel, barrel shroud, a self-loading version of an automatic firearm, pistol grip, more than five rounds in a shotgun, detachable magazine.
*Because the AWB was based on visual "scary features" and not the actual function or design "work around" features were common, and of course legal, when you make a law based on a mistaken concept and with ignorance you can expect that "the letter of the law" will become the only functioning portion.
3. Bans large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds*.
*The typical misnomer of "large-capacity" shows the propaganda value or ignorance of firearms. The limit of ten rounds was never a "standard" pistols have had a capacity of over ten rounds as a standard from the year 1923 after Dieudonne Saive's FN patent.
4. Protects (bends over a barrel) legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners* by:
"Grandfathering" weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment;
Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes; and
Exempting antique, manually-operated, and permanently disabled weapons*.
*As you will see in following text this is completely false, antique and deactivated firearms are covered under other laws and this law will not change the existing laws. Grandfathering existing firearms will only be valid without the registration portion.
5. Requires that grandfathered weapons be registered under the National Firearms Act, to include:
Background check of owner and any transferee*;
Type and serial number of the firearm;
Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
Certification from local law enforcement of identity and that possession would not violate State or local law; and
Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration*.
*The NFA registration requires an FFL to add what is known as Special Occupation Taxpayer (SOT) "stamp" to become a "class 3 dealer" for automatic firearms. The Feinstein bill will force current owners of standard autoloading firearms to add a NFA firearm SOT stamp this will translate to the following:
Obtain approval from the ATF
Obtain a signature from the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) who is the county sheriff or city or town chief of police (you can guarantee that some anti-gun areas will in effect ban your guns, setting you up for confiscation of arrest).
Pass an extensive background check to include submitting a photograph and fingerprints
Fully register the firearm and gain approval from local officials
Receive ATF written permission before moving the firearm across state lines and when moving to a new residence
Pay a $200.00 tax for EACH firearm
To sell or transfer the ownership of each firearm requires ATF Form 4, payment of the tax, and prior approval
*Currently expanding the role of BATFE will prove disastrous, the BATFE has proven itself incompetent to handle the current NFA registered firearms.
BATFE is implicated in corrupt politically based illegal acts such as:
The reprehensible harassment of citizens by malum prohibitum charges
The botched Ruby Ridge and Waco murders
The "computer scandal"
The harassment, intimidation and verbal abuse by ATF Agents under the notorious gun show "Pilot Program, where gun show attendees were stopped by agents as they returned home, then detained while being interrogated, and many had their purchases confiscated by ATF agents. The purchasers were compelled by an ATF letter to appear at ATF offices to explain and justify their purchases.
The death toll from the politically motivated fraud known as "Fast and Furious", "Too Hot to Handle", "Project Gunrunner", and "Wide Receiver" scandal continues to rise.
