California Senator Dianne Feinstein already unveiled more legislation which critics say chips away at the Second Amendment.
Feinstein released a press release detailing her newest gun control legislation, which is aimed at stopping the production of what she terms “military style assault weapons”, strengthening the restrictions on bump stocks and other types of stock may be used on a rifle, and includes provisions regarding “assault pistols.”
The bill would ban the production of “205 military-style assault weapons by name”, and require existing guns to be kept in “a secure gun storage or safety device like a trigger lock.”
Additionally, the bill would ban bump stocks at a congressional level, as the existing ban happened in the judiciary branch and is being challenged legally through the courts. Feinstein noted this in December of 2018, foreshadowing this legislative action.
The bill would also ban magazines able to hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, place restrictions on the stocks that can be used with “assault pistols”, suggesting with the correct stock an “assault pistol” may be transformed into an “assault rifle.”
Feinstein’s press release offers no insight as to which 205 weapons may be classified as “military style assault weapons” versus the “more than 2,200 guns” exempted for use in “hunting, household defense or recreational purposes.”
Feinstein and her coalition of Democrat senators named the Parkland, Las Vegas, and Sutherland shootings as the driving cause necessitating the legislation, attributing them all to 2018. In reality, both the tragedy in Las Vegas, Nevada and Sutherland, Texas happened in 2017.
The veteran senator rocked national headlines last year, when it was revealed Feinstein employed a Chinese spy on her staff for 20 years, including while she headed the Senate Intelligence Committee. Feinstein maintained that the spy had no access to sensitive information, and downplayed the revelation.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
