Feinstein Targets “Gun Culture” as Democrats Prepare New Attacks on 2nd Amendment
December 16, 2012
California Senate Democrat Dianne Feinstein – a renowned and notorious gun-grabber and enemy of the Second Amendment – targeted America’s “gun culture” in the wake of the deadly rampage in Connecticut attributed to a mentally ill man on Friday.
“I hope and trust that in the next session of Congress there will be sustained and thoughtful debate about America’s gun culture and our responsibility to prevent more loss of life,” Feinstein said soon after the murders.
“I will do another assault weapons ban,” she promised.
Feinstein has exploited shootings in the past as part of her ongoing effort to attack the Second Amendment. In 1993, following the the 101 California St. shooting in San Francisco, Feinstein introduced an assault weapons ban in the Senate. The decade long ban was signed into law by president Clinton in 1994. It outlawed a number of semi-automatic weapons based on cosmetic features and other attributes such as flash suppressors and telescoping stocks. The law also banned “high capacity magazines or feeding devices.”
