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.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.
Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”
Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.
There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.
McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
