Not satisfied riding the wave of grief and sorrow that has swept the country over the death of 20 innocent children and 7 adults (all the media types ALWAYS unfeelingly leave out the poor Mother of the murdering psycho), Senator Dianne Feinstein has apparently resorted to misstatements of truth on her web site. In the section covering firearms, www.feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/ass... she supposedly cites a report by two researchers by the name of Jeffrey A. Roth and Christopher S. Koper. The only problem is she gets the name of the report wrong; the date on which it was published wrong (by two years) and the information she offers is not consistent with what IS contained in their report correctly called:
"Impacts of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban: 1994-1996", US Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, National Institute of Justice Publication No. NCJ173405, dated March 1999.
She specifically "cites" page 2 as containing percentages of persons killed. NOWHERE on this report are percentages of persons killed, wounded, or not killed, not wounded offered. The report does state REPEATEDLY that "Assault Weapons" (sic) were/are RARELY used in gun crimes, even before the ban took place.
We Americans need to stop, take a deep breath and realize what folks like Dianne Feinstein, Charles Schumer and others are attempting to do by manipulating the feelings of guilt and grief of the average American and doing the same with their fellow representatives and senators. If she is lying to us about this report, what other "statistic" is she lying to us about or badly distorting. Remember the words of Benjamin Franklin:
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither".
http://assaultweaponsbanof2013.blogspot.com Compare the lies Senator Feinstein conjures up on her website citing an alleged work by the researchers Roth and Koper with what was ACTUALLY stated in their report, a true and accurate hardcopy of which has been uploaded unto this website. RESIST.

The mainstream news media have been aware that several antigun proponents are carrying concealed firearms but have failed to expose this hypocrisy. This writer's efforts to discover how many other anti-gunners are also packing heat - a right they wish to deny other citizens - met with limited results.
Not only does Schumer carry a handgun, the New York City Police Department also provides armed escorts for the good senator. In fact, the Government Accounting Office -- the investigative arm of the US Congress -- slammed Schumer's use of police resources for personal protection. It's clear that Schumer believes he's special. He wishes to ban private citizens' ownership of firearms, while he enjoys layers of protection.
"No wonder Chuckie Schumer shoots his mouth off so much - he's able to protect himself," says a 25-year police veteran.
Also, a check of Pistol License records shows that Senator Schumer possesses an "unrestricted" pistol permit, a rarity in New York City. Licenses are distributed in different categories in the Big Apple: Target Permits allow only use of a firearm at a licensed firing range; Premises Permits allow weapons to be kept in a home or apartment; Restricted Permits allow the gunowner to carry their firearms concealed but only within the purview of their job (security, jewelers, armored car guards, etc.). So it's evident that Senator Schumer has two sets of rules -- one for Americans and one for himself.
And then we have Senator Diane Feinstein on the Left Coast who possesses something more rare than a conservative Republican in San Francisco - an unrestricted concealed weapons permit. Apparently without shame, she participated in a citywide gun turn-in program that was intended to create some kind of statue from the donated guns that were to be melted down. One of her police body guards let it slip that she contributed a cheap model for the meltdown, while retaining her .357 magnum revolver for her own personal self-defense.
Hypocrisy is not limited to politicians when it comes to the Second Amendment. For Example, well-known Washington-based columnist, Carl Rowan, often wrote about the ills of firearms ownership. Until, that is, he shot and wounded a teenager who trespassed on his property. The white teenaged boy claimed he wanted to try Rowan's swimming pool. Rowan, an African-American, retaliated with deadly force using a firearm. That's when the news came out that Carl Rowan, gun-control advocate, actually possessed a license to own firearms.
Another example is the loudmouth entertainer, Rosie O'Donnell, who once ran roughshod over conservative actor Tom Selleck because of his stance supporting the Second Amendment. Although Ms. O'Donnell doesn't carry a gun, she has three armed bodyguards who protect her, her wife and her children, something the vast majority of hardworking Americans could never afford. Isn't it comforting to know all these Liberals are looking out for us?
