JUST IN: Feinstein Immediately Pushes GUN BANS After House Passes Strict New Measures

Democrats promised to take our guns, and so they did

Democrats passed a House bill that stops law-abiding citizens from defending their family with weapons. Dianne Feinstein made a move just a few hours later. She didn’t waste any time, you know…

Feinstein announced her next move, and we are not even surprised. She and her left-wing friends are doing an effort to stop gun violence. Instead of going after criminals, they punish citizens who follow the rules. It’s like banning cars from great drivers while allowing others to hit the highway.

Here’s part of the shocking statement:

“It’s been 17 years since the original Assault Weapons Ban expired, and the plague of gun violence continues to grow in this country,” said Feinstein on Thursday. “To be clear, this bill saves lives. When it was in place from 1994-2004, gun massacres declined by 37 percent compared with the decade before. After the ban expired, the number of massacres rose by 183 percent. We’re now seeing a rise in domestic terrorism, and military-style assault weapons are increasingly becoming the guns of choice for these dangerous groups. I’m hopeful that with the new administration and Democratic control of the Senate, we can finally pass commonsense gun reforms to remove these deadly weapons from our communities.”

Enter Feinstein.

Assault weapons are designed for a single purpose – to kill as many people as possible in as short an amount of time as possible. That’s why they are the weapon of choice for mass shooters and domestic terrorists. They are weapons of war and do not belong in our communities,” added Congressman Cicilline in the joint statement. “Banning these weapons will make our cities and towns safer and more secure and help to reduce gun deaths.”

“Military-style assault rifles were designed to kill as many people as quickly as possible. Period. There is no reason why these weapons should be sold to the public. President Biden ran on passing commonsense legislation to end the gun violence epidemic. The data is clear: an assault weapons ban will save lives. I’m proud to join Senator Feinstein in reintroducing this critical legislation,” said Senator Murphy.

“What do Las Vegas, Orlando, Newtown, Sutherland Springs, El Paso, and Parkland all have in common? These communities are a tragic shorthand for some of the deadliest mass shootings in our nation’s history, all of which involved an assault weapon,” added Senator Blumenthal. “Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are deadly and dangerous weapons of war that belong on battlefields—not our streets. They have no purpose for self-defense or hunting, and no business being in our schools, churches and malls. By passing this legislation, Congress can honor the memory of the beautiful lives cut short by military-style assault weapons in far too many American cities.”

The NRA issued an immediate response, noting that the new measures give the government enough authority to “delay gun sales.”

GOP Rep. Burgess Owens warned Democrats. They didn’t listen. They never do.

GOP Rep. Mary Miller of Illinois believes the new measures won’t keep US citizens safe.

“The idea that this is going to make us safer is laughable,” said Miller. “Criminals looking to get their hands on firearms to use in crimes are not going to submit to background checks. Only law-abiding citizens will follow the law. This is a back door means of setting up a national registry of firearms – something I completely oppose.

“The problem with gun violence is not that we don’t have enough gun laws,” Miller continued. “We have enough gun laws. What we need is to make sure the laws we have are enforced. Look at what happened in 2019 in Aurora when five people were shot and killed. The shooter had moved to Illinois from another state and because his background information was not updated – he was allowed to get a FOID card in Illinois and purchase firearms. Then when he applied for a conceal carry permit, his criminal background was discovered and his FOID card was revoked but his guns were never surrendered as required by law. If the gun laws had been enforced – a terrible tragedy could have been avoided. We need better enforcement – not more laws. Instead of passing terrible legislation like H.R. 8, we need to do a better job of providing law enforcement agencies with the resources they need to enforce existing gun laws.”

They won’t stop here. We are already afraid for the future.
