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."

The bill's measures include stopping "the sale, manufacture and importation of 158 specifically named military-style firearms and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. It would also ban an additional group of assault weapons that accept detachable ammunition magazines and have at least one military characteristic," according to the Huffington Post.

The left-leaning website adds: "Other new provisions include requiring background checks on all future transfers of assault weapons covered under the bill and eliminating the 10-year sunset that allowed the original ban to expire."

It's not the breath of tyranny on our necks, it's their boots!

I just wonder when enough will be enough for the rest of the American people. This is the same situation we found ourselves in when our founding fathers fought for our freedom from the British, high taxes, unfair laws, and a detached upper class presiding over it all. Revolution is coming, we should all prepare.

We have become a left leaning society, and it's going to take a collapse of this country before we head back down the correct path. We all need to get prepared, because we are not far from it happening.

I once dropped a gun and it hit my big toe and my toe nail turned black. Ouch. It was all over the liberal press and news media for weeks. And it was the guns fault not mine

It is time. We should ban all toe nails.
