Democrat Gun Control Proposal Exempts Government Officials

"Do as I say, not as I do" is one of the many unofficial slogans for liberalism, the mental disorder.  Last week, Senator Dianne Franken Feinstein (D - CA) revealed her gun control proposition, as Democrats never cease to let a crisis go to waste.  Targeting semi-automatic weapons and ammunition, Franken Feinstein added a small caveat to her bill: government officials would be exempt.  How convenient, considering she once had a concealed carry permit, until she became a Senator, giving her access to armed guards.

Add schmucky Charles Schumer to the list of concealed carry permit owners who is advocating for gun control, unless you're an elite government official.  This creates a path to tyranny that only liberals dream of: an elite status given to government officials who couldn't cut it in the real world.

Details:

Weapons used by government officials and law enforcement will not be prohibited by the law proposed by the California Democrat, which would prohibit the sale, manufacture and importation of 158 specifically named semi-automatic weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. Any weapons legally owned before the bill’s enactment would also be exempt, although those firearms would have to be registered in a national database.

In addition, more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles and manually operated firearms would also be exempt.

The ambitious measure seeks to reinstate and expand the federal ban on assault weapons that expired in 2004. While gun control restrictions -- typically extremely unpopular -- have floundered in Congress in recent years, there has been a renewed push for tighter regulations in the wake of last month’s elementary school shootings in Newtown, Conn.

But gun rights activists, led by the National Rifle Association (NRA), have vowed to oppose any legislative action that could increase regulations on firearm ownership, claiming it is an undeniable violation of the Second Amendment.

"Senator Feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades," the gun lobby said in a statement. "The American people know gun bans do not work, and we are confident Congress will reject Senator Feinstein's wrong-headed approach."

The Second Amendment was designed for exactly this type of situation: an all-powerful, centralized authoritarian government trying to take protection rights from the individual.  Franken Feinstein is a liberal hypocrite of the first degree.  Government officials are the last people that should be exempted; it's we the people, not we the elitist government.
