So Diane Feinstein makes her first move. AWB 2.0 even more onerous and absurd.—

It isn’t just Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s creative spelling of “devices” that makes her gun-grabbing proposal absurd. DiFi’s proposed mutilation of gun owners’ rights is even more extensive than her maiming of the English language.
That’s not much of an exaggeration.
Feinstein’s legislation has yet to be released — she probably wants to pass the bill before you find out what’s in it — but today her office shared a summary of her gun-grabbing proposal. “Onerous and absurd” look like mild criticisms after reading her outline of the proposed “assault weapons” ban.
National gun registry? Check! Banning guns based on the way they look? Check! Possible outlawing of certain BB guns, handguns, and semi-automatic rifles and shotguns? Yep, you guessed it. Check!
Feinstein’s proposal starts off with a ban on 120 “specifically-named firearms” that aren’t specifically named anywhere in her summary.
It’s like a Cracker Jack prize. The mystery is part of the allure, right?
A “military characteristic”? Like the ability to fire bullets?
Musket Morgan will be pleased as punch!
Think that if you like your BB gun you can keep it? Think again:
Of course, there’s one class of citizens that won’t feel any pressure to comply with the law if it passes.
Will the well-known exemption for people committing acts of journalism in the “public interest” be included in the bill?
