  •  Feinstein to introduce new assault weapons ban (2+ / 0-)

    that unfortunately only bans future sales and not present possession of such weapons. Perhaps that's politically unavoidable, but I think they should add a provision allowing the government to buy back currently owned such weapons, at a premium if necessary, and another one to make it hard to impossible to use them for their intended purposes (I'll leave the technical experts to figure out how to do that--limit ammo or clip sales, perhaps?).

    And yeah, peoples' right to live trumps peoples' "right" to bear arms.

    •  It'll grt watered down (actually re-written by the (0+ / 0-)

      NRA) so that the Congresscritters can feel good about passing something that has no hope of stopping the violence and terror that our children are living with daily.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

        Not if we have anything to do about. I'm tired of being condescended to and patronized by rich politicians who will never have to personally worry about most of the issues they deal with and care more about being seen as doing the right thing than actually doing the right thing.
