The new laws proposed by Sen Dianne Feinstein offered at the urging on President Obama, will do very little to make an actual difference in violent gun crimes in the United States. The number one gun targeted is a rifle class called “assault weapons”. Banning a class of rifles because they look scary and ignoring other more potent weapons with the exact firing capabilities proves on of two things. Either Sen Feinstein, the President, and other liberals are woefully ignorant about guns, or they are misleading the American public on purpose.
People who make emotional decisions very often make poor decisions. Such is the case for almost all of those who are pushing for banning weapons, blanket background checks, limiting magazines, etc.
Sen Ted Cruz from Texas lays out the case as well as possible within the time limit given him. If you watch this and still think the measures being pushed by the Democrats will have any significant impact on gun deaths in America I will be amazed.
I don’t think the leading Democrats are this ignorant. I believe they are once again engaged in trying to make political points. It’s purely politics, to heck with facts, they have an agenda to push. To the Left, saying you care and appealing to the emotional whims of the public is the same as actually caring. What is needed is not political maneuvering but exploring serious ways to find and help young murderers in the making before they kill. That strategy will save lives. New gun laws will not.
