Well, the bad news comes first. It should come as no surprise that the Democrat-controlled senate committee would approve of Dianne Frankenstein’s “assault weapons ban” bill. From TVNZ:

The bill offered by Senator Dianne Feinstein of California would ban the sale, import and manufacture of 157 specific types of military-style, semi-automatic assault weapons. The prohibition would go into effect the day the bill became law.

It would exempt 2258 types of rifles and shotguns that are considered “legitimate hunting and sporting” firearms.

Feinstein said the exemption should provide the American people with more than enough weapons to defend themselves.

“Do they need a bazooka?” she asked at the hearing. “I don’t think so.”

Feinstein is an idiot. We — the normal, law-abiding gun owners of America — aren’t asking for permission to own a bazooka.

What we are asking for is the right to own the best possible firearms that will help us protect ourselves and our families and our homes from the fucking mutants who would invade us, rob us, overpower us, kill us. We have a natural right to self-defense and if that means that we should be able to buy and possess an AR-15 to match the one some creep is pointing at us then we need that right protected by our government. The government supposedly elected “by the people” but in reality elected by the liberally-dominated media lackeys.

The Second Amendment is not about hunting. It’s about self-defense. From criminals, the government, and YOU.

The good news? Well, it’s not a given but hopefully, a full senate vote will defeat this bill banning so-called “assault weapons” and standard capacity magazines that hold more than 10-rounds.
