SURPRISE!: Feinstein Gun Control Bill To Exempt Government Officials

SURPRISE!: Feinstein Gun Control Bill To Exempt Government Officials

Not everyone will have to abide by Senator Dianne Feinstein's gun control bill. If the proposed legislation becomes law, government officials and others will be exempt.

"Mrs. Feinstein's measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel," the Washington Times reports.

The Huffington Post confirms these exemptions, and adds that guns owned prior to the legislation becoming law will be permissble, too. "[T]he bill includes a number of exemptions: It exempts more than 2,200 hunting and sporting weapons; any gun manually operated by a bolt, pump, lever or slide action; any weapons used by government officials and law enforcement; and any weapons legally owned as of the date of the bill's enactment."

This Bill needs a Rider

Rand or Mike Lee should attach a rider removing this exemption (for Congress critters) from the Bill. Make gungrabbers look stupid voting to keep their own 2nd amendment, while exterminating ours.

One set of laws for the plebes, another set for the overlords.

Someone should have her arrested

For being in possession of those rifles within Washington DC, where I have it on good authority they are illegal.

Great find

I don't get it

Don't gov't officials want to be safely free of guns too? Progress for all!

Wow. Shocker

Who would have ever thought

I'm just so surprised by this I can hardly contain myself.

Not.

If a tree falls in the woods and everyone ignores it, did it even fall?

Maybe I should search for her own facebook / blog sites and give her a couple of DOWN-votes.

Can they make it any more blatant?

Sheesh the hypocrisy of these people...I swear.
