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.

The Huffington Post confirms these exemptions, and adds that guns owned prior to the legislation becoming law will be permissible, too. "[T]he bill includes a number of exemptions: It exempts more than 2,200 hunting and sporting weapons; any gun manually operated by a bolt, pump, lever or slide action; any weapons used by government officials and law enforcement; and any weapons legally owned as of the date of the bill's enactment."

The bill's measures include stopping "the sale, manufacture and importation of 158 specifically named military-style firearms and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. It would also ban an additional group of assault weapons that accept detachable ammunition magazines and have at least one military characteristic," according to the Huffington Post.

The left-leaning website adds: "Other new provisions include requiring background checks on all future transfers of assault weapons covered under the bill and eliminating the 10-year sunset that allowed the original ban to expire."

Of course. Only people in power get arms, the rest of us get sticks. Until the Assault Stick Ban gets passed.

I wonder if the folks who are really opposed to gun control here in the US would want to put this sign up to let everyone know?

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

Hey, saw Feinstein in a 1995 news clip talking about the fact that she bought and carried a concealed handgun. Funny, just like a hypocrite, do as I say, not as I do!!

[fade][/fade]Can we post the list of 2200 weapons? I saw the like to the military list from the article.

At the same time if anyone can find a detailed description of Feinstiein's personal security, her armed guards, how many and what they carry, and the amount of money spent by the State of California and the Federal Government, just on her personal security.
