    Feinstein rumored to be pushing semi-auto ban if Obama reelected

    California Senator Dianne Feinstein‘s Washington, D.C. “…staff held meetings on Friday with FTB/ATF [Firearms Technology Branch/ Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives] legal staff to discuss a new ‘Assault Weapons Ban,” Jim Shepherd of The Shooting Wire reported yesterday, characterizing the meeting as a “rumor” based on “pretty good intelligence.”

    Feinstein’s rumored bill “would ban pistol grips and "high-capacity" magazines, eliminate any grandfathering and ban sales of ‘weapons in possession’" Shepherd writes.

    Rumors, Acquisitions and Elections
    November 5, 2012

    Don't have the minutes of the meeting (yet), but sources tell me California Senator and longtime gun-hater Dianne Feinstein's legal staff held meetings on Friday with FTB/ATF legal staff to discuss a new "Assault Weapons Ban" Madame Feinstein would be looking to push through Congress if President Obama wins reelection.

    This same "pretty good intelligence" says the items that would lead to a ban would ban pistol grips and "high-capacity" magazines, eliminate any grandfathering and ban sales of "weapons in possession". I don't know about you, but if these things come to pass and I'm "in possession" I'm certainly not selling. In fact, the lack of interest in the idea surprised the California liberal's legal staffers. Apparently, they believe no logical person could possible disagree with them.

    Ordinarily, I wouldn't begin (or end) with a rumor, but today and tomorrow aren't exactly ordinary days. Today is the final day before the general election, and in case you haven't noticed there are plenty of significant items on ballots across the nation.

    But the outcome of the presidential race will say a lot about where we're headed as a nation- and as shooters. If you are registered to vote and haven't already voted via absentee ballot, delay whatever you had planned for tomorrow short of life-saving surgery and get to the polls.

    On Friday, I began receiving the first reports of increases in gun buying by people concerned about tomorrow's election. Dealers in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Indiana all tell me there hasn't been a huge number of buyers expressing those concerns, but the numbers were noticeable.

    Why do they still say it's a "rumor"?She's on record with her elitist views on control of we the people.

    I wonder if she planned the "gangster" pin-striped suit on purpose? I never noticed that she had a wedding ring. Can't imagine coming home to that every night. No amount of booze could fix that kind of ugly!

    I would, but I think it should be a "Constituent" Otherwise it will just be ignored, as an unworthy question, from someone with an Agenda.....

    That's why I didn't do it. Anything from FN21dy would go to the waste barrel in less than a heartbeat.
