    Sen. Feinstein's 'Assault Weapon' Ban Really Handgun Ban​





    by AWR Hawkins

    After all the Democrats' emphasis the dangers of so-called "assault weapons," the details of Senator Dianne Feinstein's pending assault weapons ban show that her real goal is to ban handguns.

    That's right, after all the criticism of the AR-15 and the holier-than-thou speeches about how no one needs a military-style rifle with a 30-round magazine the details of the ban betray a gun grab that includes semi-automatic pistols that use "a detachable magazine" and have "one military characteristic."

    This can only mean that the most popular handguns in the world for both civilian and military use are being targeted. These would include Glocks, Sig Sauers, Smith & Wesson M&Ps, H&K, and Colt, yet would by no means be limited to these handguns alone.

    Lets think about it this way folks. Emperor Yamamoto of Japan after the Pearl Harbor attack chose not to invade America because I quote "there will be a rifle behind every blade of grass". Now tell me that you think it's actually a good idea to ban any form of weapons from the citizens of this country, at a time when many countrys despise us and china damn near owns the keys to the White House? I bet people of germany wished guns were never banned in the 30's by hitler. look at the insane statistics of the crime rates in australia since they banned guns. In 5 years since the ban their department of criminology states violent crime involving guns had risen 49.2%. Good luck on your next trip to the market. If we are to change the second ammendment because these so called "assault weapons" are too dangerous then I think our first ammendment needs to be revised as well and Being Muslim banned because a handful of them have been terrorists. Choosing what guns I can and can not have as a legal citizen is exactly like saying what religions can be practiced and not. Besides, guns don't kill people. If they did all by themselves then Boeing 737's need to banned for killing 1000's of Americans on 9/11.

    The AR-15 and other similar weapons...
    :eusa_eh:
    A look at military-style semiautomatic rifles
    December 27, 2012 — Military-style semiautomatic rifles have been used in at least four high-profile shootings in the past year. Bushmaster variations of the weapon have been used in the latest two, including the Newtown, Conn., school shootings and the Christmas Eve ambush slayings of two New York firefighters. While commonly called the AR-15, Colt is the only company that has made a weapon by that name. Many other manufacturers, however, now sell similar versions of the rifle largely styled after the military's fully automatic M-16.

    NY has pumped money into semiautomatic-rifle plant
    December 27, 2012 — New York state has spent nearly $6 million over the past three years on subsidies for a two-century-old upstate factory that makes firearms including semiautomatic rifles used by the military and police and like those used in the recent mass killings in Connecticut and Webster, N.Y.
