The problem when one party is controlling everything in Congress is that there is no “balance.” They are able to run rough shod over your rights and they don’t even care. Both HR 8 and HR 1446 passed the House on Thursday, as we knew they would. On the heels of that, Sen Dianne Feinstein introduced her pet assault weapons ban in the Senate.

HR 8, HR 1446
The idea that this is going to make us safer is laughable. Criminals looking to get their hands on firearms to use in crimes are not going to submit to background checks. Only law-abiding citizens will follow the law. This is a back door means of setting up a national registry of firearms—something I completely oppose.The Epoch Times, Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.)
The votes on both HR 8 and HR 1446 bills sailed through the House with EIGHT Republicans voting for them: “Rep. Vern Buchanan (Fla.), Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Rep. Andrew Garbarino (N.Y.), Rep. Carlos Gimenez (Fla.), Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), Rep. Maria Salazar (Fla.), Rep. Chris Smith (N.J.), and Rep. Fred Upton (Mich.). Upton, Smith, and Fitzpatrick co-sponsored the legislation.” One Democrat voted against it. The final vote: 227-203
Meanwhile, The Senate is ramping up for the fight over AR platform rifles.
From HR 8, HR 1446 to a ban – Feinstein’s “Assault Weapons Ban”
CA Democrat Feinstein introduced the measure that bans a commonly owned sporting rifle. A Democrat colleague, David Cicilline (D-RI)also assisted in the introduction.
It shall be unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, or possess, or in affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semi-automatic assault weapon.Feinstein bill
The purpose of Feinstein’s bill is “To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.” The main difference in her bill from Biden’s plans are that her bill in the next paragraph states that the ban doesn’t count for weapons “lawfully possessed” prior to the inception of the ban. In other words, owners can keep existing items.
What is it about “shall not be infringed” that makes these liberals demand to limit the right to keep and bear arms?
