Here they come, Americans. The liberals now have the “firepower” — pun intended— to make a huge push toward their “assault,” also intended, on your Second Amendment rights. Sen. Dianne Feinstein has a bill that she will introduce in early 2013 that has more restrictions than the TSA.
But this is only for us individuals. The elite leftists will still be allowed to have armies of bodyguards and personal protectors. Their security detail will be exempt from such regulations because, well, they're liberals. Libs follow the age-old saying of “Do what we say, not what we do.” It's no different from John Kerry and Al Gore preaching about carbon footprints, then flying in private jets all over the planet to spew their anti-American rhetoric.
They will make a play to completely ban all semi-automatic weapons. If this passes, they will then go after ammunition. Since previously purchased weapons will be grandfathered in, the ammo is the only way to really restrict them. The cost of all bullets will skyrocket because of a tax increase and make them nearly impossible to afford.
Then, the Fed will have a government buy-back program to purchase guns at an extremely reduced price.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
