Quote:But do the facts support Feinstein’s argument?

-Let’s start with the claim that mass killings are on the rise in the United States. According to the Associated Press, those who study mass shootings say they are not becoming more common......mass killings, in fact, peaked in 1929.

-Feinstein also argued that banning so-called “assault weapons” would help decrease mass shootings.

A study by the University of Pennsylvania concluded that the old assault weapons ban was undermined because it is difficult to define what an “assault weapon” actually is and there were already so many in circulation. The study also concluded that the law appeared to have little effect on gun violence overall, most likely because rifles are used in a small percentage of gun crimes.

-Finally, Feinstein argued that semi-automatic “assault weapons” were the “common thread” in mass shootings.

“We tracked 62 mass shootings wherein 5 or more people were either shot or killed from the early 1980’s to now; 41 times pistols were used, 12 times shotguns or some type of hunting-style rifle was used, and 9 times semi-automatic rifles were used (14 percent),” Hunter told TheBlaze.

Overall, Feinstein’s claims — the basis of her gun ban — don’t appear to hold up under scrutiny.

why bother fact checking these idiots. no anti responds to reason. we all know feinstein lies, but the more we say it, the more indifferent the others become.
I was watching some of the testimony for the gun ban last night on C-SPAN.

The anti arguments were mostly emotion driven with no real meat.

The pro arguments were all based on facts and stats.

This, though I often wonder if anybody other than us is listening to what we are saying. I hope people are, but I wonder...
The law? The law is a human institution...
I could have summed it up in one sentence: Dianne Feinstein's only goal in life is to say/do whatever it takes to take away your guns!

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Why dont we send all these assholes to Countries that have bans then they can be happy and leave us and our rights alone.
