Harry Reid Shoots Down Feinstein Gun Ban Bill

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said that a controversial assault weapons ban will not be part of a Democratic gun bill that was expected to reach the Senate floor next month.

After a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Monday, a frustrated Feinstein said she learned that the bill she sponsored — which bans 157 different models of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines — wouldn’t be part of a Democratic gun bill to be offered on the Senate floor. Instead, it can be offered as an amendment. But its exclusion from the package makes what was already an uphill battle an almost certain defeat.

    If they were worried about assault weapons, they would abolish the DHS, destroy their Fully Automatic M16’s, and 1.6 Billion rounds of ammo. Then put the Militia back in charge with our Muskets. That’s how the Constitution is written. Not, the President gets his own Gestapo to Police the People… The People are supposed to Police the Govt..

    By sending it to committee as an Amendment, it could make it more dangerous that the Assault Weapons bill could be more easily passed. This way pro-gun Demoncrats could say to their constituents that they voted against the Assault Ban bill, but after the 2014 election, they can vote in the Amendment. If the Amendment is put before a joint House-Senate Committee, it cannot be modified and will make it easier to get voted through.

    Only because Harry knows it’s political suicide. If there was any advantage for the Dems in this Harry would push it through regardless.

      Harry the Drac should covet political suicide so he can prove his priestly occult skills with resurrection. No wait a minute, Fabian Mormon priests only RAPE, TORTURE and KILL their Eve Novus sacrifice victims. Hmm…

    Both the them Reid and Fenstein are bad but, in this case one bad guy shot down the other bad person, that works for me.

  • Stop all gun rights “BILLS” no more rules we have enough. These Democrats think they are a crafty bunch, let them be voted out next election. I can say I’ve never voted Democrat let this be something to be proud of……

  • Watch that the little tricksters push it through later while we think we have a victory. Their agenda is deceit. The American people must be aware that they will use this as a “concession” or compromise. When in fact they are just trying to calm the storm so they can slip other agendas past with less opposition. They think we are stupid ! WE ARE NOT!

    As soon as Holder and Obama get the 3500 AR-15’s and AK-47’s they shipped to the Mexican Cartels back…I will give Obama and Holder one of my high capacity weapons. Otherwise they can take a flying. They supply criminals and then demand that I give them my only protection if these criminals decide to invade America!!
    Just because the Congress, Obama and Holder don’t care about America…since they only see their position like a Government sponsored employment./…doesn’t mean I should go inside their foolish heads!
    These people are so inside their own heads that they don’t know what’s going on around them!! Wake Up Congress and get outside of your foolish thoughts!

      That was Schwarzenegger. He shipped further south to Chavez arming and training transnationals on our own 2nd amendment tactical.

      Fast and Furious was cover moving this to Mexico so people knowing they were planning an attack on our own country wouldn’t route Obama.

      Americans are retarded. Get them off the planet, get it over with. Fabians have a plan for species upgrade anyway. You feeling me, bro?

    Not buying it. This is one of Harry Reid’s glory moments which is designed cull the public’s trust in his policy making. This is how they do it folks. One smoove move to the next, and they come back around on you with the double cross, shock and awe and rendition, all of which are Harry Reid Mormon specialties, particularly rendition.

  • Americans seem to have already drawn the line in the sand. Don’t they realize we’re taking names? jeez these politicians are so stupid.
