FEINSTEIN: “DO AWAY” WITH “ASSAULT WEAPONS”
Senator Admits Gun-Grab Agenda
By Harold Hutchison
Even as her semi-auto ban failed, garnering only 40 votes in the Democrat-controlled Senate, notorious gun-grabber Dianne Feinstein was out calling for America to “do away” with semi-automatic firearms that she labels “assault weapons.”
During an interview on Fox News Sunday, the California Democrat said, “We did away with machine guns because of how they’re used. I think we should do away with assault weapons because of how they’re used,” while discussing the manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was on the run after the bombings and a massive firefight with police.
The city of Boston was placed on a virtual lockdown while the hunt took place, with public transit, Amtrak, and even taxi service being shut down for all or part of 19 April. Massachusetts has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, including requirement to get a Firearms Identification Card to own rifles and shotguns, and licensing of handgun purchases. Boston has even stricter gun laws, particularly governing semi-auto rifles.
If you ever wonder why Dianne Feinstein is called a gun-grabber, just remember what she said on Fox News Sunday.
