Obama, Feinstein ‘beating dog’ on gun ban

DEAR EDITOR:

The current knee-jerk reaction of the President, Sen. Diane Feinstein, and the other gun grabbers is reminiscent of a scene in the movie “10.” Dudley Moore’s character visited the home of the clergyman who had performed Bo Derek’s marriage, (hoping to learn her whereabouts). When the full bodied house servant entered with the tea service and released loud flatulence, the dog quickly ran from the room. And the pastor said, “Whenever Mrs. … breaks wind, we beat the dog.”

It has already been proven by the previous (and expired) “assault weapon” and ammo clip bans that such laws were total failures in preventing the Columbine and Virginia Tech mass murders.

Yet Obama, Feinstein et al, are quick to “beat the innocent dog” again.

And of course the mass murder crimes are unaffected.

Ah, but in the latest news, Sen. Feinstein claims that all veterans have PTSD and should not be allowed to own or carry a gun, any gun.

The inherent biases and prejudices of liberal lawmakers are so on display here. But is anyone paying attention?

We'll never stop all gun killings. The idea is to reduce the body count.

New York City, which has some of the strictest gun safety laws in the country, last year recorded the lowest homicide rate in the 50 years it has kept reliable records.

That's called a correlation, Colonel.

Kevin, how convenient that you left out the fact that Chicago, which also has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, has an extremely high rate of violent crimes including homicide. (Over 400 school children shot in one year, for example)

That is also called correlation, Kevin.

Further, the administration talking heads have already admitted that the gun controls they are pushing for WILL NOT STOP mass killings. They may as well have added that they will stop almost no killings, because criminals, or people intent on killing, do not pay any attention to laws.

The only people those laws would affect are law abiding citizens.

It is ironic that, because the authorities are unable to control crime, they seek to punish those who do not commit crimes.

Anyone who does not see that disarming law abiding citizens is going to increase crime, is blind, stupid, or has their head up their you-know-what. Which one are you Kevin?

Yes but look at Chicago where guns are banned and it has one of the highest homicide by guns rate in the US.

Banning guns will not stop killings. Look at the homicide records and you will see that there are more killings by other means than by guns.

And for the record Feinstein is a complete idiot!

@ Middleton - Again, another reading comprehension problem. Please re-read comment: LOWER BODY COUNT, as in fewer deaths.

Foley, you are clutching at straws with semantics Your argument is shot to hell! New York proves that gun controlm,with manipulation of statistics can work. Chicago proves that it does not. Give it up.

Show me statistics to prove that gun control will reduce body count. It will not stop one criminal from killing somebody. What it will do is stop law abiding citizens from protecting themselves.

You gun grabbers, including Obama, keep repeating the lie that the Newtown shooter used a semi-automatic rifle, when, in loca,l law enforcement's investigation concluded that the AR-15 never left his trunk and that the killings were done with handguns.

And Chicago, which has just as strict gun laws as New York City, tops the country in murder rates.

That's called ineffective legislation, General
