    This proposed bill is ridiculous....it is a bit of a read but I suggest you read ALL of it.

    Feinstein wants to make the characterstics of an assaul rifle allowed on a rifle 1 instead of 2, She will change the definition of pistol grip into any grip that acts as such (CA grip stocks and thumbhole stocks) and it will include fore grips... This is ridiculous!

    I've said it before:
    Do not think that Feinstein and her co-horts have not learned from the previous AWB.

    So I guess it will be up to some astute engineer to figure out how to retrofit an AR to function without a pistol grip. Would a cap of some sort hold the selector spring and detent in place? Could be big money here...retrofitting 20 millions ARs at $10 a pop...hmmmm?

    Here's the email I just sent to the President, both my Senators, and my Representative:

    I am seriously concerned that certain members of Congress plan to introduce new gun control legislation in January 2013, which would - if enacted - irrevocably harm our great Nation and its citizenry. I am unequivocally opposed to ANY further restrict

    ions on my ability to purchase, possess and use firearms of my choice to use for any lawful purpose whatsoever, as guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

    This includes any and all firearms on Sen. Feinstein's ridiculous list of so-called "assault weapons". BATFE records show that sales of AR-15s
    (to name one) increased dramatically following the expiration of the 1994 assault weapons ban, while gun murders during the same post-assault weapons ban fell dramatically.

    Gun control has never been shown to reduce violent crime, and the presence of legally owned guns is a great deterrance to criminals. If laws already on the books were strictly enforced, much of the current gun crime would be reduced. And eliminating gun-free zones such as schools, shopping malls, and government buildings would put an end to the defenseless concentrations of victims that publicity-seeking nutcases prefer.

    Finally, the school attended by the children of President & Mrs. Obama has armed security guards in addition to Secret Service agents. Do the children of the rest of America's families deserve any less protection?

    The only problem I have with all of this is the sheer ignorance of it all!

    The same people who want to ban guns don't know anything about them...But if I were to scream that Obamacare needs to be repealed, they'd just tell me I don't know anything and that I should just be quiet..

    Hypocrites and Ignorant Doom Sayers...
