California’s Diane Feinstein has introduced a bill to ban about 150 types of rifles. There are not machine guns, which are under controls. These are like automatic pistols that let you fire several rounds without physically pulling back the hammer with your thumb.
No one speaks of a pistol as an assault weapon, merely because you don’t have to cock the hammer before pulling the trigger. But they call “no-thumb hammer” rifles assault weapons.
Her bill is not going to get through the Senate, let alone get through the House. The Senate’s Democrats know what is happening around the nation. There is a mad rush to buy guns and ammo. If the Senate passes her bill, the mad rush will get worse from the Democrats’ point of view.
Feinstein is not just a liberal. She is a California liberal. She is a feminist California liberal. That is, she does not have a lick of political sense.
Her bill is creating the biggest wave of gun buying we have seen in my lifetime. Across the nation, there is massive demand to buy guns. Every time Feinstein opens her mouth, another American who never thought of buying a gun heads for Walmart to buy a shotgun or some other weapon.
Feinstein is the gun industry’s manna from heaven. Like manna in the wilderness, she keeps coming back every day.
The media cover her bill. Yet everyone knows it doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in the Mojave of passing. But the media are drawn like moths to a flame by her bill.
People read about it. (You are.) Some people think there is a chance this bill will be signed into law. So, they run to a gun store. They head for a gun show.
This is good for Second Amendment advocates. The more people who own guns, the less likely Congress will pass a bill like Feinstein’s.
