Assault Weapons Ban is NOT Over

You’ve probably heard the news this week that the U.S. Senate decided to drop Dianne Feinstein’s infamous Assault Weapons Ban bill from deliberations. Many gun owners rejoiced when the news broke, but it’s not over. Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced this week that, though the Feinstein bill was dropped, he will see to it that universal background checks are incorporated into a new bill, as well as amendments which will include very similar assault weapons ban language. He has promised to allow this new bill to voted on at the Senate floor, sometime after April 8, 2013.

Now is the time to contact your senators to voice your opposition to this illegal move to grab your guns. We all know that “universal background check” is a watered-down code name for universal gun registration and confiscation. Reid also explicitly plans to include language in the new bill which would put limits on high capacity magazines, as well outlawing private firearm sales and transfers.

Don’t think for a second that this is over. It is not the time to sit back and ignore what the Senate is trying to do. It is the time to get on the phone and call Washington, write Washington, email Washington, and show up in person to your senators’ regional offices until they get so tired of hearing from us that they back down.


What Does Feinstein’s Gun Ban REALLY Say?

I’m sure you have heard a plethora of misinformation, just as I have, about Dianne Feinstein’s plan to ban assault weapons, “high capacity” magazines, pistol grips on rifles, as well as institute mandatory background checks for all citizens to purchase firearms, and implement a federal gun confiscation program.

But have you heard that this ban would also make it illegal to transfer your firearms to another private citizen, INCLUDING your own children? Instead, when you die, it would be required to pass on the firearms to none other than the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. It is vitally important that if you live in California, New York, Minnesota, Illinois, Rhode Island, Delaware, Connecticut, Vermont, and Hawaii, you MUST write and call your Senators represented on the US Senate Judiciary Committee to tell them you oppose both Schumer’s gun control bill and Feinstein’s weapons ban bill.

All the Democrat members of the Committee want to take away your guns. Tell them you won’t give them up.

I recommend this article from the Orange County Register which sheds some truthful light on Feinstein’s intentions:

And, as if it weren’t enough, did you know that Feinstein herself carries a concealed weapon? But yet she is the one who thinks it’s OK for the government elite to be armed but not the private citizen! Check out this article:
