What is the proper message? I suppose that depends on each of us. What does each of us think important? I just think most of us don’t care if our neighbor owns what Senator Dianne Feinstein calls an assault weapon.
What, exactly, does the Left mean by “assault weapons”? Evidence is abundant that this expression means to them “anything that could hurt someone” (i.e., anything capable of self defense).
Senator Feinstein’s bill clearly denotes a raft of guns to be banned based upon their scary appearance, furthering the silly notion that a bullet fired from a black gun is inherently different from a bullet fired from a brown one. Or that a bullet fired from a rifle with a pistol grip will do something different from the same bullet coming from a gun with no such grip. Stupid, isn’t it? (Especially since they admit that it won’t likely help.)
It is just military style that seems to bother them. “Who needs military weapons?” she says. Of course, a gun styled to look like one made for the military, painted black or camouflage, is still s civilian weapon, and is not of course an “automatic” weapon or machine gun. It’s just emotions.

What is the problem with that post, Assault Weapons Ban? Consider the comment I left.
Actually, the Obama administration is winning on this issue.
- Instead of pointing out that the Federal Government has no Constitutional authority to take away our right to bear arms, we debate with oath breakers. These people have sworn to support and defend the Constitution, but the scoundrels seek to disarm us.
- Instead of discussing the fact Obama administration is bankrupting our nation with high taxes and even higher spending, we are on defense, trying to defend our right to protect ourselves. Soon we may own guns, but we will not have the money to buy ammunition.
The best defense is a good offense. Assault Weapons Ban is good defense, but we are always on defense. When the Left makes a positively silly case to take away one or more of our rights, that’s all the news media wants talk about. So just to have fun pointing out the stupidity of the Left, Conservative pundits, talking heads, and bloggers join the “fun.”
The Socialist Democrat’s arguments may be silly, but constantly answering their constant assault on our rights eliminates any substantive debate. That’s why we are losing our country.
What matters? Is it how many guns we own? Doesn’t the fact Senator Dianne Feinstein and President Barack Obama violate their oath of office when they propose gun bans matter? Doesn’t the fact this whole discussion over gun control is a distraction make a difference? So why don’t we say so? We are afraid of giving offense? Do we fear being called meanies?
The Socialist Democrats and the news media are playing us for fools. These people are bankrupting our country, but that is their least offense. They are degrading the values of our nation, especially the values of our children. If we wish to keep our rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, then we must honor our Creator in our debates. He is the one who gives us our rights. Because God, not government, gives us our rights, we must debate on the proper role of government. Is it the government’s job to take away the rights of ordinary citizens? Don’t ordinary people have the right to defend their lives? If they do, then we need to remind our leaders that God did not give us the right to take away the right of our fellow citizens to own firearms. That is why the Constitution says the Federal Government will not infringe on the right to bear arms.
