Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Bill: Dead on Arrival

Written by Gary North on March 14, 2013

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.

    FineStine is a major hypocrite. She wants your gun, but she's too privileged to give up her guns.

    gun thoughts

    “The Gun Is Civilization” By Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret)
    Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.

    In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

    When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.

    The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

    There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat – it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed.

    People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a FORCED MONOPOLY.

    Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.

    People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.

    The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.

    When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid.
    It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

    It removes force from the equation. And that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.

    So the greatest civilization is one where all citizens are equally armed and can only be persuaded, never forced”

    By Maj. L. Caudill USMC (Ret.)

    And just for those who don’t understand – or won’t understand – the U.S. Constitution, the 2nd Amendment exist so citizens can protect themselves from A) those who do them harm or steal their property and, more importantly today, B) so that a tyrannical govt. could never lay siege to the populace and establish a corrupt dictatorship, oligarchy, monarchy or any other govt system that enslaves We The People.

  4. Feinstein likes to hear herself speak. If I didn’t know better, I would assume she played for the other team.
    It’s been my opinion all along that all these “shootings” within the past year and half, have all been ordered (by current admin) hits. Its just a thought. Proverbs 3:5,6

  5. What a great up front and tell it like it is posting. Would like to see this published the world. I also want thank you Maj., so much for your years of service protecting America and me and all Americans. Include all the free world countries we have left.

  6. MORE than a "liberal"……just say communist and get it over with. She's an enigma and pussing backside sore coming from my state. I have a friend who is now wanting to bring his AR15 and AK in from out of state but is now afraid they're illegal here in California. My son has an AR15 tho.

  7. Just like in "Animal Farm"………she's "more equal" than others.

  8. WEll….the latest shootings certainly were all done by democrats or relatives of democrats?

  9. Don’t be so sure that Feinstein’s bill is going to go down to defeat. She has not withdrawn it so obviously she does not believe its going to be defeated. These Democrats are not liberals, they are fascists. Once you are a fascist, what was once “reprehencable” becomes “reasonable”. So, the bottom line is this: If you care about your constitutional rights, you need to support the NRA. You need to support grassroots organizations like the Second Amendment foundation. You need to write your Congresspeople and senators. You need to keep pressure on your state government. Otherwise, the people like Diane Feinstein will win and very soon you will wake up in a United States of America that you do not recognize where you are subject rather than a citizen.

  10. Jack Mieoph says:

    many are running to gun stores to buy guns because of new STATE laws.

  11. John W Bletsch says:

    Most generally in other countries the insane are kept in protective custody. In the USA they are only limited by their level of insanity and incompetence as evidenced by the likes of Diane Fienstien, Joe Biden, Barak Obama, John McCain, etc. The hallmark of the radical liberal is the ability to ramp emotion to unheardof levels as the validity for some new law. DiFi's and the rest of the radical left's solution to dealing with insane mass murders is to legislate against the law abiding citizens and that is the same as curing diareha by repairing the toilet.

  12. Jordan Sparks says:

    Madam Feinstein may be the Second best salesperson of guns, second only to Obama, Thanks Di Di.

  13. The most severe form of mental illness is suicide. The City of San Francisco has signed an advertising agreement to post muslim cult posters on the side of city buses that state that the easiest way to get close to allah is to murder a Jew. That's okay with Feinstein, but allowing San Francisco Jews (like her) from defending themselves from these monsters is not okay with her. Just how stupid is this woman (don't bother to answer that)? Just how stupid does she think we are (don't answer that one either). Go ahead and pass this law. The federal government has NO AUTHORITY to infringe upon our 2nd Amendment RIGHTS. Go ahead … make my day and make a hundred million gun owners instant felons. MOLON LABE, bitch.

  14. PolyEster says:

    Ms. Feinstein is the poster child for term limits. She made the case for it in her little snit fit in her non-answer to Senator Ted Cruz. She has stayed waaaaay beyond her sell-by date.

  15. GreyHawk says:

    Please don't insult butt wipes.

  16. GreyHawk says:

    Here is a Marine that truly understands. I never was a Marine, I was Army, but we both understand the Second Amendment and freedom, and the relationship of one to the other.

  17. One would think that after all of those years in the Senate, Senator Feinstein would seek to uphold the Constitution, as she swore to do, each time she took the oath of her office. . .

  18. SammysDad says:

    She said she had been on committee for 20 years!!!!!! That’s the problem. Get the heck off the committee!!!! She has been corrupted!!!!

  19. Assault weapons are already illegal. Assault is a verb, not an adjective. So to be an assault weapon, the weapon must be used in an assault.

  20. Our elected officials in Washington, have forgotten what the truth is, they state they are not infringing on our Constitutional Rights, because of all the laws that have been passed, the average person doesn't have a chance with understanding the US Constitution thanks to our government elected officials. There should be term limits on US Senators, the US House of Representatives, Thorough investigation of the candidates for President & Vice President of the USA if there is going to be one before the next election. Senator Feinstein needs to retire without pay. Do you remember when she walked out of the Senate with 100 other Democrats in regard to testimony of the US Attorney General. The Fast & Furious mess. Gun Control is power of the US Government taking the average US citizens weapons away, Get ready the retired police officers & veterans of the US Military will be the first ones. Watch listen and learn.

  21. SunshineKid0 says:

    The people in Congress feel they are 'elite'. They are NOT. They are at the very basis of their job description hired by us.

    Put this into perspective: Two characters of two television shows "Benson" of "SOAP" and "Florence" of "The Jeffersons". Who do they work for, and what do they always say when told to do their jobs?

    Certainly sounds like our politicians to me!

  22. All Liberals are hypocrites, take a look at Bloomberg and Obama.

  23. Bob-1911A1 says:

    Fine-swine is an aristocratic-feminist-kakafornia-oligarch-elitist that continues to be voted into office, for only God knows why? Her claim to fame is the Harvey Milk murder, which she claims to have seen the bullets, the wounds, etc. She doesn’t give a rat’s doink about the constitution, bill of rights nor her oath of office (what are those?) She runs her office from an emotional state, period. More pabulum for the public pansies. No logic required or invited – and to hell with the law (which she wants to make more of, go figure)…. There is NOT one single bad action that can be done with any kind of gun, that does not already have a laundry list of laws against doing so…

  24. Senator Feinstein is not the only problem try US Secretary of State Kerry indorsing the UN Gun Control just like his precedessor Mrs. Clinton. The two of them do not want to step on their boss's toes. President Obama.
    There are conflicting stories about Senator Feinstein's right to carry concelled weapon permit. The body guards she has are armed as well as her husband. What makes them so different from the average citizen besides being smart enough to stay in Politics.

  25. Don't bet on Finestines bill not passing. She and many fellow liberals don't believe in the Constitution. The elite will do anything to Cow the Citizens and turn them into obedient subjects without any self protection. She will get all the get things free people support. She already has tree highers support. China loves her. Brain washed, brain dead college students think she is the greatest. Muslims can't believe their good luck. Just hope there are enough good Liberals and Conservatives out there to defeat her bill.

  26. If it were a Commie site, the people wouldn't own guns you idiot. The "Party" would. Do you know anything about Communism?

  27. I believe GOD stated man will have dominion over all other animals.I believe it will include animals in power also.It will be a sorry day in hell if these dim witted animals push this forward.

  28. Here is a great Facebook page for those of us that want to support the gun and ammo manufacturers that are now refusing to sell their firearms to governments actively trying to infringe on our 2nd amendment rights.

  29. JDBailey says:

    What an insult to "butt wipes"!! She doesn't even warrant that much!

  30. Dobro John says:

    I totally agree. These shootings remind me of all the so-called "instances" of Toyota throttles sticking wide open. That ran its course, then died. Totally bogus. I very strongly believe that at least some of these shootings were "hits" ordered by the administration of the nazi-in-chief.

  31. USAF(ret) says:

    I have to seriously question the credibility of the author of this article. When someone composes the following sentence, "These are like automatic pistols that let you fire several rounds without physically pulling back the hammer with your thumb.", they obviously have a lack of knowledge about the difference between "automatic" and "semi- automatic." Perhaps the author of this article would be very wise to at least become educated about guns before they try to write about them……pro or con.

  32. God Bless you Major Sir, Thank You for being a 'Real American'…its men like you that Heros are made of.
    My utmost salute to you Sir.

  33. Very good my brother..

  34. RocketJL says:

    It all seems like a lot of smoke, so no one would watch the other hand. Obama has plans and is allowing this to play to his tune. He is organizing and arming government people to do what he doesn't think the military will do for him. He is autorized a large military force for 'himself', he is authorized to use the military to jail any American for as long as he wants, he can kill Americans in America using drones and he has UN peacekeeping troops available for the asking. Stupid people is congress and Hollywood are letting him drive on until it is too late to stop it without guns.

  35. I spoke to a USMC Major yesterday, just to see what his illegal commander in chief has taught them about firing on a US Citizen…. “Only under the right circumstances”… In others words if you got a gun that you won’t surrender… THEY WILL SHOOT YOU”! We are truly ruled by idiots.

  36. Look up the word IDIOT in Websters…Diane Feinstein's picture is next to the definition to make absolutely certain any and everyone knows what one truly is!

  37. OldDominion says:

    Brilliantly reasoned, Major Caudill. Clear and succinct. Thank you.

  38. KBreedlove50 says:

    Maybe I'm cynical but maybe she's heavily invested in the firearms industry and she's manipulating the market.

  39. Returning vets are already receiving notice from the VA that they cannot own guns.

  40. ANTICRIME says:

    WHAT A FOOL BELIEVES…..there is a song about such fools!

  41. A few current soldiers told me they ARE training for martial law. Many states have reported that the military is conducting excercises in their states within cities.

  42. Gloria P. Sterling says:

    I have written my concerns to my reps in congress and always get a re-written (before concern voiced) reply that is nothing but a form letter and does NOT address the concern. It only states the rep's belief of whatever opinion he/she has and he/she goes on and votes against the people represented anyway.
    Sorry if my comment is a little confusing, but hope you get the drift of it, anyway. In other words, tho', it has never done any good to let them know my concerns because I don't even think they read them.

  43. LickteySplit says:

    Its Di_scus that does it..and they do it on other sites as well..certain words trigger the sanction. If youre a fan of them and have been hit more than once that adds to your chances of getting moderated. System sucks but hey..at least it isnt completely COMMIE…not yet anyway..and trust me..they are working on it:)

  44. Why were the children in closed caskets? Why were the parents not allowed to identify their own children? Why is there a picture on the net, of one of the children with Obama days after the shooting?

  45. Gunner48 says:

    BZ Major… Hooooorrahh….I read what you said and I agree wholeheartedly. Thank You Sir and have a fine Navy Day!GMCS Jake LoCascio,USN,RET.

  46. When you elect DEMOCRATS this is what you get every time. We need term limits asap. We also need to get rid of the old guard RINO republicans alsong with their pals the democrats.

  47. Since when does a Progressive/Democrat want to uphold the constitution?

  48. G. Kuhns says:

    Sen Feinstein does, at times, exhibit the intelligence of a 6-year-old.

  49. LOL, Discus isn't even an option to log in to on here. Intensedebate and WordPress are. But I wouldn't expect you to realize that, judging from the rest of your comment.

  50. We all have questions about Gary North's credibility. He's blown it to hell on several occasions.

  51. I'm not surprised you'd call a pig "fine".

  52. All conservatives are scared little twats.

  53. voorheesmark953 says:

    No they are not you can legally buy anything the military owns the lying media and government don't want you to know that I own a legally bought select fire mini 14 it's called an AC 556 folding stock 13 barrel stainless steel just go online look up class 3 weapons dealers before Clinton you could buy an M2 Browning heavy barrel machine gun .50 for $5000 but because of his anti gun agenda the prices went way up

  54. JimmyC PM says:

    Mr. North this will be the last article that I will read of yours. You have no idea what you are talking about on the subject of handguns or rifles, semi-auto or otherwise. Acording to you logic or lack of it a double-action revolver would be a automatic pistol.

  55. I would suggest reloading equipment because next they will eliminate the ammo for the guns. Not to hard to reload with the right equipment and once your set up you can do quite a few rounds.

  56. Simper Fi Marine. Awesome words of wisdom.

  57. If Hitler was a woman, it would look just like Ms Feinstein. See the resemblance?! No mustache.

  58. This is the most brilliatly written justification for firearms owneship I have ever read. It captures the essence of the issue in a perfectly clear and to-the-point fashion. Thank you for your service to the United States and thank you for a splendid thesis.

  59. maybe assualt is also an adverb..?

  60. Agreed, Jeff. Please no one let down your guard. Keep up the pressure on the senate and congress at the federal and state levels, New York and Colorado have already done great harm, do not assume a victory.

    This will go on for at least 4 more years. The battle needs to go on the offensive, they have the cards on their side. Join all the pro gun groups you can afford, these people need to be run out of positions of authority at every chance.

  61. do you want a gun in Kerry's hand? Isn't he the one who shot himself in the foot!? And then got a purple heart! He makes me want to vomit! Just like the idiot that he replaced!

  62. Macanimal says:

    Like Shane, I question North's credibility on more than one issue. However, in this case I believe Mr North was referring to "automatic" as in not having to manually cock the hammer for each round fired. Or "automatic" as in "repeater" — not automatic as in machine gun or machine pistol. Hope this helps………………..

  63. Carol Goodwin says:

    Hallelujah! It is time these kinds of rusty, crusty people leave D C and go back to LALA land, in her case! Something in the air of the west coast makes for a lot of fruits, flakes and NUTS!

  64. fireladybetty says:

    look how she is holding that weapon.

  65. Another troll from the HuffPo…

  66. USAF(ret) says:

    The manner or technical function to which he was writing about actually goes to whether the gun is a single-action or double-action gun. Automatic vs Semi-Automatic is differentianted by whether or not the weapon will continue to fire as long as the trigger is pulled back. i.e. an Uzi is an automatic because as long as the trigger is depressed, it will continue to fire. I don't know of "any" handguns that are "automatic"…..only "semi-"automatic. Meaning, you have to pull the trigger for each round fired. But then again, I may be wrong. I'm not all-knowing when it comes to every make, model, brand of handgun.

  67. Stellar. I've shared it with others elsewhere. A very healthy and honest explanation. Thank you

  68. Once again another example of leadership from the land of the lost (intelligence). The peoples republic of Kalifornistan.
    These people either don't have the intelligence of a box of rocks or they have an agenda.

  69. LEAVES WAY MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS!!!!!

  70. Robert Hamilton says:

    A weapon, arm, or armament is a tool or instrument used in order to inflict damage, harm or death to enemies or other living beings, structures, or systems. Weapons are used to increase the efficacy and efficiency of activities such as hunting, crime, law enforcement, and warfare. In a broader context, weapons may be construed to include anything used to gain a strategic, material or mental advantage over an adversary.__Any instrument/object when used to cause bodily harm is an assault weapon. Water, sound, electricity can be also used as a weapon to assault._

  71. i agree…..MOLON LABE!

  72. Korean War Vet says:

    I don’t think that I have ever read a more convincing argument for gun ownership! Major, I know that it won’t do any good, but I believe that this should be sent to those idiots in the U.S. State Department, namely one John Kerrey, and also those in the entire UN who are fighting to ban personal weapons. Thank you for your sensible message! Thank you also, for your service and sacrifices to the United States of America!

  73. 'it' aka 'she') was corrupt long before that!

  74. Korean War Vet says:

    I’ll second that, Dobro.

  75. the only thing 'fine' about a pig is bacon ……ham …….ribs. fein-swine's CRAP just STINKS!

  76. p.i.s.s on her and phuc the white horse she rode in on! MOLON LABE you old witch!

  77. you sir are an illiterate moron on the wrong side of common sense and history

  78. For us conservative and Constitutional citizens, California offers no choice when it comes to having representatives in Washington that share our views and values. Senator Feinstein and Boxer , the ultral liberals, have deaf ears when it comes to protecting our Second Amendment. Recently, Senator Feinstein stated that she had read the Constitution and clearly understood it. If that were true she would respect the very words "the right to bear arms shall not be infringed upon" The last time the so called assault weapons were banned it did not change anything but infringe upon citizen's rights. What she and othes of her mindset should be focussing upon would be securing our borders and promoting to enforce our immigration laws and making our country safer and more efficient and return to the rule of law concept.

  79. However, one has to have the powder , brass, primers and the bullet and they are also in short supply in many calibers.

  80. Erik Osbun says:

    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.

    I have to disagree with the last sentence. She has been elected to the Senate many times, and that demonstrates political sense. What you don't like about her gun politics ( I don't like that too. ) is based upon her traumatic experience long ago when Dan White murdered Harvey Milk ( the queer Mayor of San Francisco ) just across the hall from her office. She saw death from the gun right up front. What she has not rationalized correctly is that Dan White committed the crime, not his gun.

  81. MetaCynic says:

    The Major's insight on force or persuasion in all human interactions is true. To apply that insight broadly, government is all force and no persuasion. Every law ever passed threatens force against anyone who disobeys. This implies a death sentence against those who continue to disobey and actively resist. To remove the threat of force from civilization, we have no choice but to get rid of government, by far the biggest source of force and the most prolific killer on the planet.

  82. Dave Texan says:

    I think Senator Fineswine has a point, but when she wears a hat it isn't noticeable.

  83. "she does not have a lick of political sense" nor do the rest of them. In my opinion thay all talk like people with paper rectums.

  84. The old Bich needs to go she is a back staber and works to help Ovmit take over are country have a recall on her she is going aginst are consution

  85. Submariner says:

    "The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts." Justice Robert Jackson, West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943)

  86. If you want to know about communisim, ask your nearest union representative. They think it has been misunderstood. Gee where were they all these years while our soldiers and others have lost life and limb to avoid communisim?

  87. Wayne Wheatley says:

    Finstene should be ashamed. She has been in goverment all these years and look at the mess we are in. Shame on her and her coharts who take our money and use it to better themselves. Yes, Barbara there is a Hell and you will know it for sure.

  88. Don't be fooled by this gun bill/ban not being passed. This gun ban is political suicide for anyone who supports it and congress knows this. So,they are going to nix this ban and make people believe that congress DOES support our 2nd amendment. They are trying to lead people on into believing that Harry Reid and all of the rest DO support the 2nd and they're going to milk this for all it's worth. Think of it this way. If you can win the entire tournament by losing 1 game,will you throw that game to take the ultimate win? This is the art of war and using psychology to win._You can bet the farm(and your guns) that once the 2014 midterm elections come and go,and these congress people are no longer facing the voters,this ban and many more like it will be created and revived almost overnight and passed into law if the dems take over majority in both house and senate._Feinstein's ban is nowhere near dead. Just like SOPA,PIPA and the UN LOST treaty aren't dead. They're just hibernating until the politicians no longer have to face the voters.__2014 midterm elections. Vote out ALL dems and RINOS. If we don't bring both the house and senate back under conservative majority,we'll lose our liberties AND our guns.

  89. feinstein is a stinking 0bama whore who represents the frisco freaks. she spends her tome up that stinking africans ass in the white house . in doing so she stinks of obama's shit as matthews !!!

  90. Stop using "their" term for the "Big Black Scary Rifles" and use National Defense Weapon or as Today's modern "militia rifle" since unlike loser biden most of us won't be toting a double barrel shotgun !!!

  91. Detroitheat says:

    We all should Bum rush her and pile drive her in to the ground, I would love to stomp her ass big time.Hell if Mike Tyson, beat her ass for one hour it would just make her look better.That B/I/T/C/H is so ugly when she was born the doctor smacked her mama…

  93. Jstarusa says:

    Son has an AR15? Not for long if this woman isn't put in her place by the people. This of course is true in any state, not just California. Seems this president can do nothing but run afoul of the average citizen in this country along with his following of worshipers! The country cant recover from one blunder of his till hes got another ready to pass on. Taking our guns away will NOT stop criminals and violence in this country. If it did I would be in line to give them mine, if I had any to give.

  94. Don Rorschach says:

    Feinstein is NOT a "liberal." Feinstein is a COMMUNIST who has one goal and that is subjugate freedom loving Americans just as did Joseph Stalin did the Russian people.

  95. Robert Velon says:

    Sen. Feinstein is disgusting and disgrace as a reprenstative of the people of California. There was talk that there was an attempt to add legislation to her ban that would exempt veterans from her gun ban. She made a disgusting remark that veterans could not be trusted with weapons because they all suffered from PTSD. I am a veteran and being I was Air Force I never saw combat and I see her statement as being out of line….It is time she resign, retired or be forced out..

  96. Robert Velon says:

    An assault weapon is one that fires both full auto and semi-auto. Ours only fire semi-auto and are a replica of a military weapon…. We own sport weapons!!!

    Hey Spyder Monkey.
    You are one of the few that gets it right. Since WWII the government has been using a technique called "Pain-Drug_Hypnosis" or "PDH" for short. The technique incorporates government thugs to nab certain type of people off the street, those types that a losers, or have mental problems and are loners. They take them to a safe house and give them extremely powerful mind altering drugs; apply extreme pain of some sort until they get the victim into a "lowered state" Now they will be extremely sensitive to hypnosis. what the government is now employing is to give these victims commands to go out and kill children; movie goers; whomever. And of course, they are also given the command to kill themselves when they are done with their killing spree. The reason why some of these victims end up not killing themselves is because the desire to survive sometimes is more powerful than the implant they were given.
    The current administration was unsuccessful with their "Fast and Furious" program, which was just another attempt at usurping the 2nd Amendment that they botched very badly. So now they are using this PDH technique and since their victim/perp either kills themselves or is so screwed up (they are also given the command to forget), nothing can really be proven. What we really need on this is a whistle-blower to come forward.

  101. People with heavily armed bodyguards don't need guns. They don't have to wait for the police to show up either! Why on earth would we protect our servants better than we protect our own families? That's just ignorant, isn't it?

    Major, with your permission, I'm going to save and use your article as necessary. Thank you for your service. Semper Fi.

    Moresheet, all I can say; is "AMEN". Truer words, haven't been expressed like that; in a long time. Maj. Caudill expressed his words in a manner, that anyone can understand. To him I say "SEMPER FI"!!

    The weird thing is the "Animal Farm" refernce is showing up more and more in the last two weeks. All are equal, just some are more equal than others. And it's all in refence to BO. I used a few weeks ago and I saw it twice today, other than here.

  105. Don't be fooled by this gun bill/ban not being passed. This gun ban is political suicide for anyone who supports it and congress knows this. So,they are going to nix this ban and make people believe that congress DOES support our 2nd amendment. They are trying to lead people on into believing that Harry Reid and all of the rest DO support the 2nd and they're going to milk this for all it's worth. Think of it this way. If you can win the entire tournament by losing 1 game,will you throw that game to take the ultimate win? This is the art of war and using psychology to win._ You can bet the farm(and your guns) that once the 2014 midterm elections come and go,and these congress people are no longer facing the voters,this ban and many more like it will be created and revived almost overnight and passed into law if the dems take over majority in both house and senate._ Feinstein's ban is nowhere near dead. Just like SOPA,PIPA and the UN LOST treaty aren't dead. They're just hibernating until the politicians no longer have to face the voters.__2014 midterm elections. Vote out ALL dems and RINOS. If we don't bring both the house and senate back under conservative majority,we'll lose our liberties AND our guns._

  106. Not if they're shot first. I'm sure people will have no problem if it comes to that.

    DOES SHE HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT A ASSUALS WEPON IS? I HAVE A BALL BAT THAT I COULD DO A GOOD JOB ASSUALTING HER WITH.

  108. Watch for the other just-as-onerous bills that are being hidden under the radar. The frankenstein bill is nothing but a distraction.

  109. You are not alone in that thought. Since BHO was elected I believe that there have been 5 mass shootings ( there may be more by now). Tree of them happened n 2012.

  110. Feinstein admitted to Senator Ted Cruz that she knows this bill is unconstitutional, but she is still going to push it any way. I think Feinstein is unbalanced and should not be allowed to own a gun.

  111. Then they will shoot me, I will not surrender my only protection against criminals as well as the current regime.

    Gun control is like trying to eradicate drunk driving by making it illegal for sober folks to drive, period——

    Moresheet, would you mind if I shared your comments on facebook? This is the type of common sense that needs to heard everywhere!
