Feinstein gun ban bill draft now online

A draft of the much-anticipated "assault weapon" ban bill authored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein was posted online this afternoon in advance of it's posting on the Library of Congress THOMAS legislative database site. Gun Rights Examiner has received a copy and posted it on the SCRIBD document archive site.

page 120: As I read it, you can only allow someone else to use your grandfathered weapon for target shooting on "a licensed target facility or established range".
"Temporary transfer of possession" could mean that if you hand your weapon to someone else so you can safely climb a fence, you break the law. It goes on to define temporary custody in 3 A and B and there is a exemption if you are going to buy it, but no exemption for any other reason. Fence climbing is a prohibited possession! They make unsafe gun handling into a law.
This is insane.

"This is insane."

What did you expect?

Be sane...

Pay them no mind, and no obedience either/

They will do what they have shown that they intend to do.

We must do what we must to thwart those intentions.

"Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the
people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments,
to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers
are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more
insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can
admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several
kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will
bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. And it is
not certain, that with this aid alone they would not be able to shake off
their yokes. But were the people to possess the additional advantages of
local governments chosen by themselves, who could collect the national
will and direct the national force, and of officers appointed out of the militia,
by these governments, and attached both to them and to the militia,
it may be affirmed with the greatest assurance, that the throne of every
tyranny in Europe would be speedily overturned in spite of the legions
which surround it. Let us not insult the free and gallant citizens of America
with the suspicion, that they would be less able to defend the rights
of which they would be in actual possession, than the debased subjects
of arbitrary power would be to rescue theirs from the hands of their oppressors.
Let us rather no longer insult them with the supposition that
they can ever reduce themselves to the necessity of making the experiment,
by a blind and tame submission to the long train of insidious
measures which must precede and produce it.
The argument under the present head may be put into a very concise
form, which appears altogether conclusive. Either the mode in which the
federal government is to be constructed will render it sufficiently dependent
on the people, or it will not. On the first supposition, it will be
restrained by that dependence from forming schemes obnoxious to their
constituents. On the other supposition, it will not possess the confidence
of the people, and its schemes of usurpation will be easily defeated by
the State governments, who will be supported by the people."

Federalist No. 46

Perhaps our Canadian 'cousins' can shed some light one exactly how they proceeded with their civil disobedience to the long gun registry that was 'forced' on them. The were successful enough that their gummint eventually gave up when they realized that they would have to arrest a VERY sizable portion of the country. There had to be some sort of at least semi organized campaign to prompt that much civil disobedience - or are they just more stubborn than we appear to be?

Redundancy Alert:

Fuck them all, very much.

Get it?

It no longer matters what "they"
do.... only what YOU are willing to do about it.

They cannot "win" unless YOU surrender.


..or submit, register, petition, beg, wheedle, pay a fee, write your congresscritter, sign a pledge, beat your chest.... etfuckingcetera.

Defeat, ruin, destroy the bastards who would rob your grandchildrens' grandchildren of their Liberty, by any means possible...

or own your cowardice.
