Default "Put simply, we cannot allow the rights of a few to override the safety of all"

Feinstein: "Put simply, we cannot allow the rights of a few to override the safety of all. That is not the America that our founding fathers envisioned. And that is not the America I want my children and grandchildren to live in."

S. 150. A bill to regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited,
and for other purposes; to the Committee on the Judiciary.

Congressional Record page S291.

I love this part ...

Feinstein Gun Control Bill to Exempt Government Officials


Not everyone will have to abide by Senator Dianne Feinstein's gun control bill. If the proposed legislation becomes law, government officials and others will be exempt.

"Mrs. Feinstein's measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel," the Washington Times reports.

laws for thee, but not for me

gotta keep them police union palms greased, why do retired cops need 'assault weapons'?

The Bill of Rights was written to protect the individual from the government, not the other way around. Jefferson stated that "when people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is freedom."

I'm not sure if you mean every single American wants to own assault rifles. Or that they should have the right to assault rifles whether they want it or not.

she was hyperventilating about the "Founding Fathers" - neither one of you obviously din't know what they really said

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin
