NO ONE WITHIN THE PRESIDENT'S CABIT IS CALLING FOR BANNING ALL GUNS!!! NO ONE!!!
Sen. Feinstein has been the only person's name I've seen repeated by Republicans/Conservatives who takes this position, but somehow every one on the Right who speaks on the gun control issue continues to quote her as if she and she alone has some broad authority to disarm America.
STOP AND THINK, people! She doesn't have that kind of power nor influence to persuade enough members of Congress on either side to take such a stance. Furthermore, very few would even take up her proposal especially not in the wake of Sandy Hook. If anything, there are more people inside and outside of Congress who are calling for comprehensive gun control measures that make sense - initiatives that plug the holes in current gun control legislation, i.e., improving and/or expanding requirements for stronger background checks including mental health related issues, limiting the number of rounds in gun clips, and keeping assault weapons (full-auto or semi-automatic) out of the hands of every-day, average Americans. These are all common-sense approaches to reducing the violence that result from people (usually criminals and the mentally unstable) using weapons irresponsibily.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I am NOT a proponent of taking away a citizen's right to bear arms. That in my estimation would be foolish and wrong. But I do believe there are just some weapons the general public do not need to have access to for personal protection.
All of these scare tactics coming from the Right, i.e., quotes from the Hilter or Stalin regimes, are just taking things to the extreme. You folks need to stop.
