California Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) is at it again. She’s got America’s gun in her sights. After a devastating blow from the pro-Second Amendment population in America against her major gun grab last year, Feinstein has determined to dig a little deeper. In fact, a letter that she has been circulating in Washington that cites a 45 year old law, which basically allows certain guns to be stopped from import, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives interpretation of “sporting purposes.”
Feinstein claims that importers are attempting to go around the guidelines of the Gun Control Act of 1968 (an act based on the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938), in which the importation of firearms that are not “generally recognized as particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes.”
Feinstein and other gun confiscators want to attempt to portray that ordinary citizens shouldn’t own guns unless they are for sport or hunting (something never mentioned in the Second Amendment). According to Feinstein, “Many semiautomatic firearms on the market today do not have a military origin but are modeled closely after military firearms.”
The California senator cited a study by the Center for Public Integrity and wrote, “700 Romanian AK-47 variant rifles were identified in 134 federal gun trafficking prosecutions involving illegal smuggling from the United States to Mexico and other Latin American countries.”
Can you believe this hypocrisy? Smuggling AK-47 variants from the US to Mexico and other Latin American countries?
Before I go further, let’s point out that it is not ordinary American citizens doing this.
