Senator Calls Nation's Oldest
Civil Rights Group "Extreme."
By Bob Owens. March 21st, 2017
During yesterday's confirmation hearing for Supreme Court justice nominee Neil Gorsuch, California Senator Dianne Feinstein took dead aim at the National Rifle Association, branding the nation's oldest civil rights group (founded in 1871) as an 'extreme organization.'
Feinstein's NRA comment came after she voiced her expectations that the Supreme Court will have final say on air and water pollution and just before she addressed employers who "[discriminate] against workers."
CSPAN 2 aired Feinstein's comments: "It is the Supreme Court that will have final word ... [on] whether the NRA and other extreme organizations will be able to block common sense gun regulations, including those that keep military-style assault weapons off our streets."
Many things are at play in Feinstein's statement, including the ongoing Democrat animosity toward the fact that the Supreme Court rulings in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010) pose a great hindrance to the future of gun control in this country. Moreover, Feinstein's statement betrays her continued support of an "assault weapons" ban, such as the one that Democrats enacted during the Clinton administration or the one Feinstein herself unsuccessfully pushed after the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School.
"Assault weapons" are of course a politically-manufactured term created by gun control fanatic Josh Sugarmann to describe any firearm that looks remotely like a military firearm, regardless of their actual function or capability.
She's at it again - any opportunity to push the "assault weapons" agenda! It has been tiresome for a very long time, as the eternal misrepresentation continues trying to brand self-loading firearms as being akin to military select-fire weapons. Those of us with any firearms knowledge know just how innacurate this is and realize also that 'cosmetics' seem to rule the day - painting the 'nasty black rifles' as being the ultimate killing machines. Feinstein and her ilk will never give up on their ignorant misrepresentation, as they continue their hatred of the Second Amendment.
