Once again, Communist and Socialist minded representatives in Congress are making unconstitutional and irrelevant arguments against the Second Amendment and to push for more gun confiscation.
That’s right, they really want gun confiscation, not gun control because in their minds, there will never be enough gun control because no amount of laws written will ever stop the evil heart of men who are hell-bent on committing crimes with guns or any other arms they can get their hands on.
Take a listen to Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) as she pushes for a ban on “bump stocks.”
“You have to say that there is no reason to make a semi-automatic “assault weapon” into a fully automatic battlefield weapon,” Feinstein told reporters.
Let’s stop right there before continuing.
First, I don’t have to say anything, nor do I agree with her assessment about any of this.
Consider the bump stock. The bump stock is an ingenious little quick swap out of a regular stock and pistol grip.
It acts as one unit and when properly used, it will mimic the response of a fully automatic weapon, but the gun remains a semi-automatic rifle.
In fact, you can lock the bump stock in place.
Additionally, the semi-automatic with a bump stock is a bit easier to control than a fully automatic weapon, as well.
Putting one of these on your semi-automatic rifle does not make it an “assault weapon” nor a “fully automatic battlefield weapon,” as Feinstein declares.
It simply makes it a more efficient semi-automatic rifle.
There are reasons for this though.
Our Second Amendment was designed for those who represent us to keep their traps shut and their pens away from legislation that attacks such a product.
In fact, it was designed to keep DC and any government from writing legislation that infringes on the right of the people to “keep and bear arms” of any sort.
Why? Because those who represent us and their “law enforcers” are not restricted by such man-made laws.
So, it doesn’t matter if the guy had a fully automatic weapon, a grenade launcher or a .22 pistol and was doing the shooting.
