The anti-gun zealots continue to advance their deeply and long held agenda to ultimately eliminate all privately owned guns. All you need to do to confirm this is tune into any "mainstream media" program these days.
Most are aggressively advocating more "gun control laws".
Now is the time to say NO to all attacks on our "right to bear arms".
U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein is part of the hypocritical political elite that continues their tireless efforts to ban others' "right to bear arms". After she viciously fought for an "Assault Weapons Ban" in 1994-95, Senator Feinstein got a handgun herself and a concealed weapons permit in 1995 in California when it was nearly impossible to get one.
Obviously, Dianne Feinstein obtained a concealed weapon permit in 1995 because she knew then, and she knows now, that if someone was bent on trying to kill her, having a gun and being able to use it is the
only thing that will save her life. Is she special or better than everyday Americans? Obviously, Senator Feinstein is a hypocrite. She is now proposing an enhanced "Assault Weapons Ban" Bill that would more aggressively attack our constitutionally protected "right to bear arms".
Apparently, Barack Hussein Obama II and Joe Biden support this and other similar efforts. Senator Feinstein's 2013 proposed "Assault Weapons Ban" legislation in summary would: Ban the sale, transfer, importation, or manufacturing of:
· 120 specifically-named firearms
· Certain other semi-automatic rifles, handguns, shotguns that can accept a detachable magazine
and have one military characteristic
· Semiautomatic rifles and handguns with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds
Strengthen the 1994 "Assault Weapons Ban" and various State bans by:
· Moving from a 2-characteristic test to a 1-characteristic test
· Eliminating the easy-to-remove bayonet mounts and flash suppressors from the characteristics test
· Banning firearms with "thumbhole stocks" and "bullet buttons" to address attempts to "work around" prior bans
Ban large-capacity ammunition feeding devices capable of accepting more than 10 rounds.
Protect legitimate hunters and the rights of existing gun owners by:
· Grandfathering weapons legally possessed on the date of enactment
· Exempting over 900 specifically-named weapons used for hunting or sporting purposes
· Exempting antique, manually operated, and permanently disabled weapons
Require that grandfathered weapons be registered under the "National Firearms Act", to include:
1. Background check of owner and any transferee;
2. Type and serial number of the firearm;
3. Positive identification, including photograph and fingerprint;
4. Certification from local law enforcement of the owner's identity and that possession of the
weapon(s) does not violate State or local law; and
5. Dedicated funding for ATF to implement registration

So how did the U. S. Government allegedly gain the power to legislate "gun control"? The major actions to usurp this power and some to stop these unconstitutional Acts and actions are, by year: 1934: The "National Firearms Act" passed in response to a gangster culture during Prohibition. The law implemented a tax on the making and transfer of automatic-fire guns, shotguns and rifles.
1939: The U.S. Supreme Court upheld a federal ban on sawed-off shotguns.
1968: Congress passed the "Gun Control Act". This "law" called for better control of
interstate traffic of firearms. This "law" was prompted because Lee Harvey Oswald
allegedly used a mail-order gun to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.
1976: The Washington D.C. City Council barred residents from owning handguns.
1986: The "Firearms Owner's Protection Act" was approved by Congress. This "law"
prohibits felons from owning or possessing guns or ammunition. The "Law Enforcement
Officers Protection Act" was also passed. It prohibits the manufacturing, importing and
selling of ammunition that can penetrate a bulletproof vest.
1993: Congress passed the "Brady Handgun Violence Act". This "law", among other things,
established the National Instant Criminal Background Check System that gun dealers must use before selling a gun. This "law" is named after former White House Press Secretary James Brady, who was shot in the head during the 1981 assassination attempt on President Reagan.
1994: The "Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act" allegedly became law.
This "law" bans the manufacture, use, possession and import of 19 types of "assault weapons", including AK-47s and Uzis. The "law" expired in 2004. Gram County, Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack filed a Tenth Amendment lawsuit that challenged the constitutionality of the "Brady Bill" requirement for the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) of a County in the States of the Union to collect information about gun purchasers at County cost with threats of fines and/or imprisonment if the CLEO failed to comply completely.
1997: The U.S. Supreme Court held that the "Brady Handgun Violence Act" was unconstitutional with respect to the Tenth Amendment challenge by Sheriff Richard Mack and six other Sheriffs.
2007: The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of Dick Anthony Heller, 66, an armed security guard who sued the District after it rejected his application to keep a handgun at his home. The District of Columbia appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
June 2008: The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the lower court ruling, which struck down the Washington D.C. handgun ban as unconstitutional.
A close study of historical documents proves that disarming people in a society is the final step by tyrants to enslaving the people. For example, a book by "Jews For The Preservation Of Firearm Ownership" titled: "Gun Control": Gateway to Tyranny", provides a well documented side-by-side comparison of the 1938 Nazi Gun Control laws and America's alleged 1968 "Gun Control Act".
"To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them." George Washington.
Gun control is not about guns, it is only about control of law abiding Citizens. The only thing that will stop a bad person with a gun is a good person with a gun. The "right to bear arms" is our individual right, protected by both the Constitution of Pennsylvania and the Constitution for the United States of America.
Now is the time for all who love freedom and liberty to stand up with conviction and courage, armed with the true law in Pennsylvania and the United State of America, and emphatically say NO to "gun control".
"THOSE WHO GIVE UP ESSENTIAL LIBERTY TO PURCHASE A LITTLE TEMPORARY SAFETY DESERVE NEITHER LIBERTY NOR SAFETY." Benjamin Franklin
