Feinstein Wants to Ban All ‘Assault Weapons,’ GOP Aims at Reciprocity

While Senate Dems seek to limit Second Amendment protections, Republicans seek to expand them.

Dianne “gun-grabbing” Feinstein (D-CA) is at it again, this time introducing a new bill that steps all over the Second Amendment by banning “assault weapons.” And these “assault weapons,” according to Feinstein, now include mean-looking semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns. (She and a lot of other ignorant anti-gun zealots could learn something here.) Feinstein’s latest gun-grabbing bill is a retread of her 2017 Assault Weapons Ban, which is a retread of the 1994-2004 ban, but this time it includes banning even more firearms and scary-looking firearm attachments.

The Truth About Guns notes some of Feinstein’s anti-gun bill wish list, which includes, “Universal background checks, mandatory safe storage, no transfers of existing standard-capacity magazines, no bump stocks, no folding or adjustable stocks, no large-format pistols, no pistol stabilizing braces (they hate disabled persons!), none of grips or stocks designed specifically not to violate the ‘assault weapons’ definitions.”

In fact the legislation is so ill conceived that Jake Wagner of The Resurgent bemoans, “When we get into the specifics of what is banned, we see that everything is cosmetic. Most of it is stupid.”

Obviously, this is par for the course with Feinstein, as her real agenda is not to combat crime (say the 200-something annual murders committed using rifles of any type) but to effectively void Americans’ constitutional right to self-defense.

Meanwhile, Republican Sen. John Cornyn (TX) is preparing to reintroduce the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which would require all states to honor one another’s gun-carry permits. Cornyn stated, “This bill focuses on two of our country’s most fundamental constitutional protections — the Second Amendment’s right of citizens to keep and bear arms and the Tenth Amendment’s right of states to make laws best-suited for their residents. I look forward to working with my colleagues to advance this important legislation for law-abiding gun owners nationwide.”
