Feinstein, Democratic Party Get Head Start on Gun Ban Anniversary

September 13th marks the eight-year anniversary of the expiration of the federal “assault weapon” and “large” ammunition magazine ban of 1994-2004. While gun owners have been preparing to celebrate by going to three-gun competitions, doing some recreational target practice, taking carbine classes, or zeroing their ARs to get ready for hunting season, their detractors have been busy too.

At its national convention this week, the Democratic Party adopted a platform calling for renewal of the ban, as it has every four years since the ban expired. Meanwhile, the author of the 1994 ban, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), promised to introduce the legislation next year. How such legislation would fare in Washington will depend, of course, on who wins the presidential election. Gov. Mitt Romney unequivocally opposes the ban; President Obama not only supports it now, but voted for even more restrictive legislation as an Illinois state senator.

In remaining committed to the ban, Obama and Feinstein prove themselves to be ideologues in the severest sense, blind to the truth and filled with disdain for Americans whose values they don’t share.

    It is natural for governments to fear an armed populace. The more tyrannical the government the greater the fear. Our Founders realized this, and established the right to bear arms in the
    Constitution for the basic purpose of preventing government overreach.

    A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and
    ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” – George Washington

    To disarm the people is the most effective way to enslave them.” – George Mason
