Maybe this is why even the Dems have stopped supporting her candidacy… she’s being Primaried.
If you were wondering if the Left were setting their sights on undermining the Second Amendment, the evidence is piling up.
Remember, before someone can PASS offensive legislation, they must first plant the idea in the imagination of popular opinion. Like any other sales pitch, they must offer to the public a solution that fixes a problem they believe is urgent and needs solving.
If you haven’t been paying attention, we are currently in the PR phase of that project, and they are pressing hard.
As per Alinsky rule #13 from Rules for Radicals, they aren’t’ talking about guns generally. They have selected one gun to be the lightning-rod for ALL anti-gun sentiment. It will be scapegoated.
You will see stories like this one where the AR-15 is described as a ‘military’ weapon. In fact, the reverse is true:
STEPHENS: Yes, yes. So it was developed in the 1950s. A lot of people feel that, you know, the AR stands for assault rifle or automatic rifle, but, actually, it stands for Armalite. That’s the original company that developed it. And a variant of this rifle was chosen by the U.S. military and saw its first major-scale deployment within the Vietnam War. And just like any weapon that’s chosen by the military, there’s a couple factors that have to be decided upon, and one of those is reliability, accuracy and ease of use. You have to have people that are able to train with it and learn this weapon very readily, and that has a trickle-down effect because all of those components kind of enter into the civilian market. And that’s why the civilian market has a tendency to gravitate towards this rifle.
So it’s little wonder that Feinstein, who has a CC permit, but has no interest in shouldering a rifle, tweeted this:
"A handgun [wound] is simply a stabbing with a bullet. It goes in like a nail." With the high-velocity rounds of the AR-15, "it’s as if you shot somebody with a Coke can." https://t.co/xkyw3pEtjn #BanAssaultWeapons

Sorry, Dianne, there is nothing ‘simple’ about being shot by a handgun… or a rifle.
In fact the ‘dreaded’ AR-15 doesn’t even use the ‘scariest’ rifle ammunition. The .223 is, in fact, not recommended for hunting big game because it doesn’t have the same stopping power as, say, a 30/06.
And if she thinks it’s simpler to be shot by a handgun than by a rifle, she might want to look at the murder stats in Chicago, Baltimore, New Orleans, etcetera.
Remember that cop that was murdered in her patrol car in NYC, Miosotis Familia? One shot from a handgun was more than enough.
Even a country as nervous about gun ownership as Canada understands that rifles and other long guns are not the primary choice for weapon used in homicides. In Canada, there is a lot more latitude in long gun ownership there than there is for handgun ownership.
The stats back it up. Knives, and fists are more lethal than rifles.
This isn’t about safety. It’s about control.
And, while this will come as no comfort to the actual victims in that school, contrary to popular opinon (and outright media lies about their frequency), the number of school shootings is (statistically) in decline.
But the Left has their crisis, and they are more than ready to leverage the emotion it generates to accomplish their political goals. Even if it means quoting Rolling Stone as a ‘expert’ source on firearms.
Rhee is most famous at home for saving the life of Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords after she was shot point-blank in the head with a handgun fired by a mass shooter in 2011. “A handgun [wound] is simply a stabbing with a bullet,” says Rhee. “It goes in like a nail.” With the high-velocity rounds of the AR-15, he adds, “its as if you shot somebody with a Coke can.”
And we all know that Rolling Stone has NEVER told any untrue stores that were political in nature. Right?
Not even that totally-made-up rape allegation that ruined the lives and reputations of a sports team and mainstreamed the term ‘rape culture’, which pushed policy that stripped accused male students of any due-process rights.
Nope. Not political at all. Totally honest reporting.
Enjoy being Primaried, Dianne.
And good riddance.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
