Senate committee approves assault weapons ban

Senate committee approves assault weapons ban

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday approved a renewed assault-weapons ban, advancing the measure to the Senate floor where it will face intense resistance from Republicans and other gun-rights supporters.

The bill was approved by the committee on a party-line, 10-8 vote. Chief sponsor, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said she knows “the road is uphill” for the legislation, but sought to press her colleagues to consider the bill.

“Are we going to stand with the thousands of police chiefs and law enforcement officers who do support this bill? Are we going to stand with the victims of gun violence?” she said, stressing that the bill does not take “any weapons away from anybody” but would ban future purchases.

    We need to defeat this crazy wack-job created bill at all costs. Bans and registration all lead to confiscation. We will not turn into Canada willingly. We need to preserve our rights, throw out Obamacare, and throw out Obama asap. It’s time to tell this administration that they are not welcome here.

    Recent headlines like this should make a fella wonder if a “Big Move” is on the horizon.

  • gailfilerino0403

    Every communist liberal democrat that voted this in needs to be publized and voted out.THIS IS ABOUT GUN CONFISCATION. THAT’S IT. Now take their names put them out there for all to see and vote them out.

    THE POLICE CHIEFS are COWARDS,the Sheriffs are the real Law Enforcement Men and Women of this Country.Stand Tall with Your Local Sheriff, and Protect and Defend the Constitution and ALL YOUR RIGHTS and FREEDOMS.

    To bad she did not get to the Milk crime scene a little earlier As for Feinstein and her ilk need to be put in a mental ward. And if she wants my weapon come on down. But, of course like other bullies she will not do her own dirty work.

  • Louis R. McClain

    What is an assault weapon? Any gun with a hand grip? Would the bill include battery operated auto water guns? I know this is serious business but won’t SCOTUS have their say about definitions? Or will they simply recycle the old expired bill?

    • Black Rain

      Can your congressman, we do not want it to get to the Supreme Court.
      I know a lot of sheriffs have said they will not enforce these unconstitutional laws but, it’s going to be a tough chose.

    California needs to get rid of Feinstein!!!!!!

  • Jim

    Feinstein is proving she is a Communist card holding member. She took an oath of office that she will serve and protect the United States Constitution. Yet here she is now trying to invalidate the second amendment rights guaranteed in our founding document. May she burn in hell. I live in Kalifornia and have absolutely no need for her. I say we should send her a one way ticket on a flight to China.

  • john goult

    come and take them!!!

  • Black Rain

    For a senator like her who says she has been around the block a few times. Shes kind of brain dead, she doesn’t know what the Constitution or the Bill of Rights says.
    If she is the best that California has, I’m glad I’m not from there. She sounds like a bully who believes she can strong arm her will on everyone. If I closed my eyes it sounded like Barry.

      California is big financial trouble. Run by liberal dems socialist communist party. People are haul assing out of that state. If you’re leaving the leftist State of california do not bring your leftist politics please.

    • Jay

      The leftoids wouldn’t dare take gay guns, would they? Maybe we could tell them they’re just tools for late-term abortions.

  • mrsgunnut10

    ALL of these idiots that voted for this Ban should be Arrested for treason and violation of their own Oath of Office. They swore to uphold the Constitution of these United States and by this simple act of voting against the Second Amendment, shows that they care nothing about these United States of America. They should all be tried and hanged from each Lamp Post that is on the Main Drag in Washington D. C. and left hanging for a couple of days. Maybe the rest of the Damocrats would get the message.

  • bobwhite1935

    She said it doesn’t take away any guns but when & if you register your guns then when & if democrats control the House of Reps. & the Senate a new bill will come out by feinstein to confiscate your guns & the democrats will vote it into law then the fireworks begin.

  • gailfilerino0403

    The liberal democrats are socialist communist that hate America. The are trying to disarm America and buying up millions of rounds of ammo. The are trying to destroy our CONSTITUTION and financially destroy our economy. The have been and they are destroying our childrens minds with the garbage they are forcing the teaches to teach. That you should be ashamed if you’re white. They are trying to teach that our forfather’s, the pilgrims and any great piece of American History is distorded that they were terrorist. They want pre-kinder garden children taught sex ed and elementary children taught it’s ok to be a transvestide or trans dresser. What is wrong with people that they would vote for these people. California id dead broke from 20 or 30 yrs of the libs. They are making people responsible for millions of dollars in back taxes even though they have paid their taxes and they are already paying the highest taxes in the country. This is their liberal socialist economy. How do you like CALIFORNIA NOW with all your taxes?? Every Republican state run by Republicans is out of debt & their unemployment is down. LIBERALS STAY IN YOUR BLUE STATES. Please don’t come to our Red states with your wacked out liberal ideas.
