    The more extreme the proposal, the less chance of passage. We should hope that Feinstein throws everything in there, including the kitchen sink.

    And a national registry? I hope she gets laughed out of the chambers. Most likely she is includung a bunch of stuff she know won't pass to pad negotiations

    You mean: "Dianne Feinstein wants an assault weapons ban on Thursday", which makes it.......EXACTLY THE SAME AS EVERY OTHER DAY.

    The title is a bit misleading, yes she will be submitting it tomorrow. While it's correct that more extreme the less likely it will be to pass, we can't let our guard down. We still need to contact our reps.

    Only one of my Senators is up for re-election in '14, the other just won her seat back.

    Both are Detroit-centric Democrats. I'll contact them nonetheless, but I expect very little from Stabenow. I don't expect too much more from Levin, either. Their typical response to their conservative constituents is "I support the Second Amendment, but..."

    It would be interesting as I'd guess the current SCOTUS would reject several of those proposals...yet it's hard to tell what SCOTUS would look like a few years from now when any challenges would eventually get there...

    Don't expect Scalia to support "military style" weapons for civilians. He laid the groundwork for affirming an "assault weapons" ban -- it's right there in his Heller opinion. Gun owners will rue the day that Scalia arrived at his Heller result by negating the Militia Clause in the 2nd Amendment.

    Hopefully we'll finally be able to see the list of weapons she will gracious enough to let us keep should this bill pass.

    But Scalia also said that guns that are in common use are protected. And remember, supporting opinions are not the same as the actual decision.

    Yeah, we better get our defensive strategies in order. It looks like King Obama and his court have been working under the radar to destroy our 2nd amendment and other Constitutional rights.

    The say one thing, do the opposite administration.

    Instead of asking them to barter only a few of our rights away at a time why don't we just fire them?

    If the guy who mows my yard decides to mow it a different way I am pretty sure my wife would replace me....I mean him :)

    Impeachment is not an unnatainable option. It is within our power to Impeach these people.

    Call your reps. Mine won't do anything about it, but I'm going to contact them anyways.

    Let them vote. We need to see who's getting fired.

    Remember that by the time it gets passed (if it is), goes into effect and a chalenge reaches all the way to the supreme court, obama will likely have made another appointment or two. Considering how close some of the last decisions were, don't count on the court if a conservitive or two decides to retire.

    IMO, the crazier the bill the better. It will keep it from passing and easier to strike down if it does.
    I fear Reids "compromise" bill a lot more than Feinstien/schmuer ban them all bills.

    If you live in a district that is pro 2A or a lost cause already I would also encourage folks to call districts where the rep. is on the fence. Use an address in their district if they ask, they seem to take calls from constituents more seriously.

    Better yet, try to wind some of the other side up to support the looniest, most clearly unreasonable even to the completely clueless restrictions you can imagine... False Flag them like they do to us, gaslight 'em and help give 'em a little push so we can show them to the rest of the world as the Batcrap Crazy we know them to be behind their masks.

    @Johnny Dollar; Would you feel better if I quoted info wars or prison planet ?

    Sit back and do nothing, that's what the .gov wants you to do.

    I'm gonna light up the phone today.

    It's good to call to oppose any AWB or mag cap limit Bill, but IMHO, these are all red herrings. The real prize the anti-s want is Universal Background checks, because that will open the door to a federal registry of who owns what.....the necessary prelude to confiscation.
    I think the AWB and mag cap bans have no hope of passing the House. They are throwing these out to distract us from the main goal: UBC.

    I am mentioning that I am against AWB and magcap bans when I start my weekly conversation with my rep and senator aides, but I quickly segue to UBCs and tell them WHY I am against UBCs. Even the pro-2A aides often do not understand the full significance of Universal Background checks, though the GOA and NRA have now got it and are highlighting why UBCs are so bad.

    :)

    I do not share your optimism. Everyone said that same thing about health care, it passed, they said the court would strike it down, they did not. Do not depend on the system to work, this is about control. They want you disarmed. Beat the senators and congressman with letters and calls; same for the state legislators.

    I checked all the A T & T cable channels at 11:30---CNN showed the start of her dribble & then cut it off---I have not found it on any other channel
    I guess we will have to read about it
