California Senator Dianne Feinstein's Ban Assault Weapons Law

Senator Dianne Feinstein from California announced on Sunday she will introduce legislation into the United States Senate to ban assault weapons. While this might sound like good news to gun control proponents, if you listen closely to what she said there are over 900 exemptions built into the law. Honestly, why is she wasting the time of the American people passing a law that has no hope of saving even one life.

Left wing politics are driving Feinstein and other democratic leaders to pass any kind of gun control law in the aftermath of the terrible school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday. The American people have made it quite clear over the last decade or two that they do not want the U.S. Federal government taking away their rights to own and bear arms granted under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Liberal politicians like Senator Dianne Feinstein are still under the mistaken belief that it is the lobbying efforts of the National Rifle Association which are the driving force behind a reluctant Congress to impose additional gun restrictions on the public. In reality - political leaders in the Congress know well that a majority of the folks back home, especially in rural areas, do not want the government infringing on their right to own guns.

What has been missing so far from the mainstream media's push for more gun control in the United States is the fact that many Americans believe more guns and not less could reduce the effects of mentally ill people taking out their rage on innocent bystanders. Have you ever notice that these crazy lone gunman always show up at locations where victims are not allowed to carry a firearm for self-defense?

No one in the mainstream media desires to even consider the possibility that additional guns in the hands of the good guys might save more lives than greater gun control. Do you think it is possible, that some of those students and teachers in Connecticut could have been saved if someone in that school legally had a firearm and challenged the shooter? Maybe it would not have made any difference, but it certainly would not have made things worse.
