A Refreshing Shot of Reality, Part II

Anti-Second Amendment crusader Senator Dianne Feinstein admitted on a Sunday spin show that no law could have stopped the maniac who massacred 58 people and injured almost 500 in Las Vegas last week.

“No, he passed background checks registering for handguns and other weapons on multiple occasions,” Feinstein told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

But there is one law he definitely broke, which is the law against murder. Criminals don’t follow the law. Nevertheless, she persisted.

“Regulations aren’t going to do it,” Feinstein said on the need for a law over an ATF rule. “We need a law. It can’t be changed by another president.”

Feinstein is referring to the “bump stock,” a firearm modification originally created to assist disabled shooters. Last week, the National Rifle Association suggested the ATF review its original finding that the device was a “firearm part” and not an actual modification to the firearm action. The bump stock was approved for sale by the Obama administration.

“I think you want to tell ATF to do its job. It’s an interpretive issue and they need to get the job done,” the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre said on “Face the Nation.”

“America is a gun-happy country. And I think there are many of us in growing numbers that don’t want a gun-happy country,” said DiFi.

(Quick aside: she doesn’t realize it, but Senator Feinstein is a living, breathing endorsement for CalExit. Not just herself personally, but also for the people who have elected her again and again. Does this country need people like this having a say in how we govern ourselves? I would say no.)

At least she’s consistent. It’s well known that she supports total confiscation, and knowing that she cannot get that done, is falling back on the tried and true tactic of salami slicing. Even though I, and many of you, think that bump-fire stocks are just plain silly, we need to oppose any law and/or regulation that would restrict or ban them. Because FTFY.

(Another aside: “a firearm modification originally created to assist disabled shooters”? In what universe was that? Certainly not in the one that I live in. But whatever.)

Unfortunately, I also note the squishiness of the Lairds of Fairfax. Not only is the NRA prepared to fold on this, Mr. LaPierre seeks to not only cooperate with our political enemies, but also would have the baby-killing, kitten-stomping thugs of the BATFE going out to enforce this travesty.

All that having been said, the highlight of this is DiFi actually telling the truth for a change:

“…he passed background checks registering for handguns and other weapons on multiple occasions”

I’ll leave you with the words of Col. Cooper:

The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.

And no amount of gun control will ever change that.
