California’s Senator Feinstein puts the jerk into knee-jerk liberal.
She introduced a comprehensive gun control bill three days after the December 14 shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.
If you think she wrote that bill personally, you’re wrong.
If you think it was written from scratch in three days, you’re wrong.
If you think the bill will be signed into law, you’re wrong.
The bill is good news for gun owners. It does not go after normal weapons, only assault weapons and large-capacity ammo magazines. This indicates that Feinstein did not think she could get anything more comprehensive through the Senate, despite the shootings.
As for the House of Representatives, forget about it.
Gun sales are going through the roof. So are ammo sales. It’s a bonanza for gun stores.
Every time there is a mass shooting, this happens. The gun control lobby gets its hopes up. Then gun owners buy more guns. Non-owners who had been on the sidelines finally make their first purchase — the first of several. (“Bet you can’t buy just one.”) The ratchet of gun ownership rises another notch. Maybe two. This time, three.
