Feinstein Wants New Assault Weapons Ban, But Will Bide Her Time.

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/...n4931769.shtml

Headline:Feinstein: Not The Time For Gun Control

From the article:

Quote:
But even if she pursued the renewal, the votes may not be there today in either the Senate or the House. Both Houses of Congress gained pro-gun Democrats this past election, some of whom won the support of the National Rifle Association. "I am not going to disagree with that at all," says Feinstein. "The National Rifle Association essentially has a stranglehold on the Congress."
Remember the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of OZ trying to figure out how to get the Ruby Slippers away from Dorothy?
"These things must be done delicately".

Gee, Feinstein is from California which is about as West as you can get in America, not counting Alaska and Hawaii, but I digress.

Isn't it interesting that the democrats ran more "pro gun rights" democrats in critical districts and states to get the endorsement of the NRA and get more people who favor gun rights to vote for them. This was their strategy, dreamed up by Howard Dean, IIRC, to take control of congress. They wanted the guys who drive pickups with confederate flags and NRA bumper stickers to vote for democrats in order for the democrats to regain their majorities in Congress. Now that they have accomplished that goal, they have some of their liberal leaders whining that the NRA has too much influence in Congress.

They sold their souls for less gun control and more congress control. Now they want less control by the NRA.

Law abiding citizens and gun owners, 4 million of whom belong to the NRA, are writing letters, sending emails, and calling their representatives and senators. They are tired of the lies such as that +90% of the mexican drug cartels' guns were coming from the US because our guns laws aren't tough enough. BS. We're mad as heck and we're not going to take it anymore.

She and her gun banning cronies in Washington will be waiting for an event to occur where they can strike while the iron is hot. We must be ready and prepared.
