Feinstein Pushes 150 'Gun Bans'; Reid Defeated

Obama's bagman in the U.S. Senate - Democrat Harry Reid - failed to come up with the 51-votes he needed to crush Republican opposition by eliminating the 'filibuster'.

This is huge, because if Reid had been successful, it would've allowed him to ram-through Obama's anti-gun crusade, amnesty for illegals, or any other liberal fantasy.

Senate Republicans would be virtually powerless to stop him.

In fact, away from the TV cameras, Reid gloated that it was his "Nuclear Option" to crush Republican opposition to Obama's radical Second Term agenda.

But because of thousands of phone calls, faxes, and emails in the 'eleventh hour' by patriots like you, Reid was dealt a major blow.

Instead of "nuking", Reid cut a face-saving deal with Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.

Here's Reid's surrender on the filibuster:

"I'm not personally, at this stage, ready to get rid of the 60-vote threshold". 

That's because we beat him like a drum, deluging his fellow liberal Democrat senators with emails, faxes, and phone calls by thousands.

Senate Republicans - as long as they can keep some of their own members in line - have a fighting chance against Obama's radical Second Term agenda.

So on behalf of freedom-loving Americans everywhere, thank you.

In fact, we can't thank you enough, because today liberal Sen. Diane Feinstein and the Democrats introduced the "Assault Weapons Ban of 2013".

"Feinstein said the country's 'weak' gun laws allow massacres like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occur", reports The Daily Caller.

This, in the first salvo of expected new 'gun-control' schemes, Feinstein's bill would institute "a government ban on more than 150 types of firearms, including rifles, pistols and shotguns".

Here's what Feinstein says:

"Getting this bill signed into law will be an uphill battle, and I recognize that - but it's a battle worth having,"

Let's be clear about one thing: Obama doesn't want to control guns; he wants the government to confiscate, and then eliminate your Constitutional gun rights.

And if you don't own a firearm, remember, this is not just about 'guns'.

It's about protecting every single American freedom we love and cherish.

Because if we don't fight back now against Feinstein, Reid, and the Democrats with everything we've got in the Congress, there'll be nothing to stop Obama from inflicting his far-left agenda on America for the next four years.

We need to be tough, resolute, and to fight back like never before.

Today was a victory, because of your support in the "eleventh hour".

Reid lost because he could not get enough of his own liberal Democrat Senators to back him on a power grab.

So thank you for all that you did to help defeat Reid's so-called "Nuclear Option".

Now let's make Obama, Reid, Feinstein, and the Democrats rue the day they disgustingly blamed the slaughter at Sandy Hook on law-abiding gun owners everywhere.

How dare they.

TAKES 10 SECONDS ... DO IT AND PASS IT ON
Own a Gun?    Please Keep This Moving
Guess they were not happy with the poll results the first time, so USA today is running another one... Vote now
Attorney General, Eric Holder, has already said this is one of his major issues. He does not believe the 2nd Amendment gives individuals the right to bear arms. This takes literally 2 clicks to complete. Please vote on this gun issue question with USA Today. It will only take a few seconds of your time. Then pass the link on to all the pro- gun folks you know. Hopefully these results will be published later this month. This upcoming year will become critical for gun owners with the Supreme Court's accepting the District of Columbia case against the right for individuals to bear arms.
Here's what you need to do:

First - vote on this one.
Second- Send it to other folks and have THEM vote - then we will see if the results get published.

The Supreme Court upheld the 2nd Amendment as giving individuals the right to bear arms...... soooooo there's not much Holder can do except huff and puff. Even if there's any anti gun legislation proposed, it'll be political suicide for most of the Dems to vote for it as the last time they voted for a ban, quite a few of them got bounced out of office in the following elections.

There's a great audio podcast about guns and gun control by Freakonomics guru Steven Leavitt here:  http://www.freakonomics.com/2013/02/14/how-to-think-about-guns-a-new-freakonomics-radio-podcast/

If you don't want to listen to it, he brings up some cogent facts:

1) Mass shootings are incredibly rare.  2/3 of gun deaths overall are suicides.

2) A swimming pool in a house is 100x more dangerous to a child than a gun.

3) Those to whom guns are repugnant, and therefore want to ban them, will almost always associate with people of the same opinion.  Therefore the chance that one of these people will be killed by a gun are extremely remote.

4) Gun buybacks are stupidly inefficient in reducing gun deaths

5) The only realistic political method to reduce gun crime is adding mandatory additional jail time for all crimes committed with a gun.

6) Overall deaths can be reduced more effectively by targeting automotive deaths than gun deaths.

The same economist did a study that shows that violent crime levels, which decreased sharply after 1980, were a result of Roe v Wade.
