Feinstein Bill Puts Sights on Parents With Guns

If an outright gun ban doesn't work for the Left, they've got a fallback position.

There's a draft of Sen. Dianne Feinstein's  gun-grab bill making the rounds, and it doesn't just propose to ban the manufacturing and sale of "assault weapons."

It also mandates restrictions on existing weapons, chief among them storage of firearms.

The bill would effectively make guns useless by requiring they be put in gun safes or be equipped with a locking device. Anyone who doesn't follow that advice could be liable if someone gains access to their guns.

The bill includes a long list of people who are prohibited from using guns, but most ridiculous is the prohibition on anyone under 18 from using a firearm. If the bill passes, parents could be treated as criminals if their children do something as innocent as going out target shooting.

I and most of the people I grew up with learned how to shoot when we were between the ages of 10 and 12. Many Americans teach their children responsible firearm usage at even younger ages.

To say the Feinstein bill overreaches in its efforts to restrict gun rights is like saying Godzilla is a minor nuisance to Tokyo, but the restriction on properly trained young people's access to guns is among the most absurd parts of this dictatorial legislation.

Other questionable members of the "restricted" list are anyone who has been dishonorably discharged from the military, no matter the reason, and anyone who has been indicted -- not convicted -- of a crime that could carry a one-year or longer sentence, regardless of the nature of the criminal charge.

Among other burdens on owners of existing weapons is a $200 tax to register weapons that have already been bought and for which taxes were already paid.

So if the Left can't successfully ban guns outright, then liberals intend to make it so expensive and burdensome to own a gun that many people will simply capitulate and surrender their weapons to avoid the bureaucracy.

And despite the recent encouraging trend of sheriffs across the nation publicly stating that they will not enforce unconstitutional weapons laws, the Left still has plenty of thugs with badges to do their bidding, such as San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne, who has thrown his support behind Feinstein's bill and President Obama's recent executive actions against guns.

"I could not be more supportive of the president for taking the position he has. I think it's courageous with the politics involved in this process," Landsdowne told San Diego 6 in January.

He has previously publicly said that guns could be completely eliminated within a generation.

    I taught my kids gun safety (respect) and how to shoot at a very young age. Being a LEO, I had always had guns in the house and it was important for me to take the curiosity from them. I guess now that would be illegal.

    • Doodlebug

      Yup, off to jail with you! We too were taught to respect guns as were my kids and now my grandchildren so, we'll see you in jail. I wonder how she thinks any of us can protect ourself when our gun is under lock and key. The Sheriff in one of our bigger counties, is tell us to arm ourselves for protection until they get there. I'm reading of more and more places that are just going to ignore it if this crap becomes law. It must be nice to have all the protection like she has and sit there on her throne and say that we have to chance it. I'm beginning to believe that politicians have mush for brains. There isn't anyway that they can be normal with their thinking.

      • TAM44

        Your 100% correct in your thoughts about these better than anyone else politicians, and most of them do have mush for brains and diane feinstein is eleven eggs short of a dozen.

        That Sheriff was telling us to arm our selves for our protection until they get there and he's so right. Calling the law enforcement in some places is like going to an emergency room on a weekend, your in for a long wait.

        Did you see how the reporter was handled when he ask mayor blooming nut about being and activist for gun control, but how many gun he had around to protect him. That;s the way these dirt bags are, all for themselves and screw the citizens rights.

          I did see the reporter TRYING

          i did see the reporter TRYING

        • Doodlebug

          i did see the reporter TRYING to get some answers from blooming nut but of course to no avail. It is interesting how all of them, not just obummer, but the mayors etc. will all have protection. They and no doubt, their entire family. I can't help but wonder if all those guns they confiscated from that boat were some of the "fast and furious" guns. I put nothing past past this lying administration. NOTHING!!!

      • Conservativesniper

        The sheriff actually has more authority than the feds in his jurisdiction. You must live in close proximity to Sheriff David Clarke, Jr. But this is scarier This website made me catch my breath,

        Pretty scary stuff.

      Liberalism is a dangerous disease much worst than any cancer known to man as there are some cancer cures that look really promising. diane feinstein is eat up with liberalism and she is a hopeless case and they say your mind is the first thing to go when you get it.

  • Screeminmeeme

    NOTHING in this bill would have prevented the Newtown school shooting.

    Ironically, Feinstein's overreach is the very reason there is a 2nd Amendment: To oppose exactly this kind of government tyranny.

    It's infuriating.....and not surprising....that weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel are EXEMPTED from the law.

    Folks....our corrupt ''professional political class'' is taking over bit by bit. They are passing laws that THEY THEMSELVES are not obligated to obey.

    In 1995, the House and Senate passed the Congressional Accountability Act, which did apply many civil rights, labor and workplace safety statutes to the legislative branch that previously it was exempt from.

    Unfortunately, Congress is STILL exempt from:

    *The Freedom of Information Act.

    *Investigatory subpoenas to obtain information for safety and health probes.

    *Protections against retaliation for whistleblowers.

    *Having to post notices of worker rights in offices.

    *Prosecution for retaliating against employees who report safety and health hazards.

    *Having to train employees about workplace rights and legal remedies.

    *Record-keeping requirements for workplace injuries and illnesses.

    *And...........OBAMACARE.

    Why in God's good name do we tolerate this?

    Every sane, freedom-loving American MUST call, email, write or visit their Senators and Representatives and INSIST that this law get the ax ....and KEEP DOING IT until the bill is DEAD AND GONE.

    Or......we might just have to get out those 'evil' weapons and defend our Constitutionally guaranteed rights.

      I think we are already to the point of your last paragraph!

      I am a Californian and I am so sick and tired of Scum like Feinstein, Boxer Pelosi, et al.

      And I am even more disgusted with the leftist trash in this state that keep getting them in office, no matter who we put up against them and vote for ourselves.

      If the Founding Fathers were alive today they would have already been in the field at a modern Lexington and Concord!

      Why arn't we?

        To busy playing video games, being lazy and apathetic.

    • Pastafarian

      If Nancy Lanza had secured her weapons instead of allowing her unstable kid unfettered access to them, she and all those kids would be alive today.

      I agree with you on the exemptions Congress gives itself. I also do not agree with Nixon's "If the President does it, it's not illegal" excuse.

      • Carl Stevenson

        If the president does it, he should be hanged like any other traitor.

      • BigUgly666

        Her weapons WERE secured, you idiot.
        He murdered her in her sleep so he could gain access to the weapons.

    Me too. By age 18 I had a sling shot and by 28 allowed to play with a fully functional and VERY dangerous BB gun. You/Us better wake up. If Slut Feinstein and those like her are NOT put in check NOW legally, you're going to find out what it's like to loose a loved one to war.

    • Friscolady

      I already know what it is like to lose loved one's to war.

      All the more reason to say to them - Yes, elections have consequences, however so do revolutions.

      Slut? Why are you being so kind?

  • Carl Stevenson

    A gun is of no use to you if it's unloaded and locked up when they come for it ...

    I guess that they have no idea of what "shall not be infringed upon" means. And the only way to eliminate guns with in a generation is a dictatorship. Which of course will in the end only lead to more violence according to history.

  • lonetrader

    Since the Constitution AUTHORIZES firearms to be used against a tyrannical govt. It is time for a civil war. These tyrannical representatives are out of control. If they can not be stopped legislatively, we will have a civil war. People will not sit down like they did with Clinton. If ANY of these bills passes since Congress started this year we will have a huge problem. It is very close to the time of playing cowboys and politicians.

    Feinstein=Hypocrit SYNONOMUS

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Terry-Riney/1079046734 Terry Riney

    Feinstein took an oath to support the Constitution including the Second Amendment. It is time to impeach her for dishonor of the Constitution.

  • fwiw

    Landsdowne seem totally unsuited for any kind of law endorsement. If he can't understand the Constitution, how can he possibly understand the myriad of laws on the books?

  • Tom Kon

    Just try to force your illegal actions on Americans you idiot democrat! America has a constitution .... Follow it ! We the American people obey just laws ... We will not be bully by this pompus ass regiem and the Democratic Party of Nazi's!

  • Derek Schneider

    The senate cannot initiate a tax...so call the $200 something else...the administration has run that game before during the Obamacare hearings.
    The house is still Republican...they damn well better grow a spine and stand up to SOMETHING this illegitimate administration and hypocritical senate propose.

  • Laurence Almand

    No wonder San Diego - and all of Southern California - has a high crime rate, and dozens of gangs. If all the people were disarmed, that would be a criminal's paradise, just like our neighbor Mexico.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Donna-Casas/1530991238 Donna Casas

    My father taught his four kids how to properly handle and shoot guns when we were under 18 and my husband did the same with our kids.
    The criminals are laughing at the politicians for writing bills to disarm people so crime can increase.
    It's all about controlling us. Atta girl Feinstein!

  • WATCHMAN

    MAYBE THIS POLICE CHIEF WHO SUPPORTS THE COMMIE FEINSTEIN...MAYBE HE CAN BE ELIMINATED IN THE NEXT ELECTION!

  • netandyawho

    Send Landsdowne to Arizona, Oklahoma, or Texas to enforce Feinstein’s (Frankenstein's wife's) gun-grab bill and he will certainly disappear off the face of the earth if my name isn't Obama.

  • DOOM161

    They don't enforce the alws they have now. What makes anyone believe they'll enforce more laws?

  • http://profiles.google.com/ntiquesrme nancy williams

    First off she carries a gun for protection. Contact her and make sure she has hers locked up before anyone else does. Let her try and defend herself under lock and key.
