No Longer Camouflaging Their Agenda, Anti-Gunners Start Gun Ban Plans

Friday, November 9, 2012

Any attempt by the anti-gun elite to hide their agenda has officially gone by the wayside.  Recent electoral history had taught the gun control crowd to camouflage their intentions during the campaign season, and then wait for an opportune time to act.  That tactic now appears to have run its course.

With Obama winning a second term as president, the anti-gunners know they don't have to face voters at least until mid-term elections, so they seem to be wasting no time in pressing what they see as an advantage, and are starting to once again come after our guns in earnest (please see U.N. Story above). 

Last week, anti-gun Senator Dianne Feinstein's (D-Calif.) staff met with the legal staff of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to discuss a new and very comprehensive "assault weapons" ban. 

According to a ShootingWire.com article, Feinstein's rumored "assault weapons" bill "would ban pistol grips and 'high‑capacity' magazines, eliminate any grandfathering, and would ban sales of 'weapons in possession.'"

This is not a new strategy for Feinstein and her allies; they are just newly emboldened to drop the façade and press forward with the same agenda they've always had.  Feinstein has championed gun control in her state for decades, and was co-author of the original Clinton "assault weapons" ban in the 1990s.  Furthermore, her anti-gun philosophy and agenda are in lock-step with President Obama's stance on the issue.  In the Oct. 16 presidential debate, Obama said that he supported a ban on "assault weapons" and implied that he supports restrictions on "cheap handguns."  As detailed on www.GunBanObama.com and www.GunBanFacts.com, Obama supported banning both types of firearms and many more when he was in the Illinois legislature, and supported banning "assault weapons" when he ran for the White House in 2008.

It appears that the gun control supporters have dropped the camouflage and have once again started working to further their gun control agenda.  And the NRA will once again stand in their way.
