Feinstein: Congress, not exec branch, must ban 'bump stocks'

There are 15 comments on the KHQ-TV Spokane story from Oct 8, 2017, titled Feinstein: Congress, not exec branch, must ban 'bump stocks'. In it, KHQ-TV Spokane reports that:

Seeking momentum for gun restrictions, Sen. Dianne Feinstein says only broader legislation would be effective in outlawing "bump stocks" like the Las Vegas gunman used. But the National Rifle Association is reiterating support for more limited regulations that stop short of a ban.

Knowing atheist scum, pervert predator validating, drug addict promoting Feinstein's history, this is another gambit to make a big political morass and show, while tacking on all sorts of other gun bans, etc. to any legislation. She is interested only in setting up a scenario, where she can claim Republicans and conservatives are impeding and harassing her and her gun grabbing allies. Some smart-ass Democrat like Schumer probably gave the senile witch the idea.

If we want to reduce violence in the country we need to start mandatory psychological testing those left wing anarchists that are burning cars, blocking highways, stopping free speech at universities, tearing down statues and now killing people at concerts.

Did anyone notice how peaceful the white nationalist assembly was in Charlottesville this weekend. No Antifa in sight.

Seems to have worked this weekend. No cars set on fire with tiki torches, no buildingds burned with tiki torches, no windows busted with tiki torches, no police officers assaulted with tiki torches.

Explain where the violence came from??? Although my beliefs differ from those marching with tiki torches. They are entitled their views, opinions and so on...Who was it that created the chaos and violence ???? Who has created chaos at legal peaceful protest across the country??? To include their own rallies, protest ect...

Her, Schumer, Boxer, Franken, Lieberman & Michael Bloomberg are all dual-citizens with Israel and therefore cannot legally hold any federal office.

It is possible to be against aftermarket enhancements to create a rapid fire rifle and be for conceal & carry.

Just like the first amendment, the second amendment can have limits.

It seems even the NRA is softening up on the issue of bump stocks.

The symbolism of a march with torches goes back to a time when Nazis terrorized anyone that did not fit their agenda, mainly Jews, but many others of difference races or religions. They also targeted elderly in poor health and disabled people.

Allowing Nazis to “peacefully” target others with hateful symbolism is not because these Nazis are peaceful, it is because these Nazis have intimidated the public.

Nazis have been very effective at creating an environment of hostility, then they incite a reaction, and then set themselves up as victims.

Now they want people to congratulate them for a “peaceful” march?

More like those who find their message disgusting should be congratulated on doing their best to ignore the Nazi Evil and not dignifying the situation with counter protests.

But interestingly enough, many blame the Jews for their own torment by saying not enough Jews fought back when the Nazis were carrying torches.

Evil is difficult to fight.

Your ignorance seems boundless. Men have been using torches to fight the forces of darkness ever since they discovered fire.Carrying torches didn't begin with the Nazi's.

Following the assassination of Caesar in 44 BCE, the citizens in Rome who gathered in the Forum to hear Antony's eulogy grabbed pieces of wood and furniture in the area in order to make an ad hoc pyre upon which to burn the dictator's body. Many present at the cremation then grabbed pieces of flaming wood as torches from the pyre. As the historian Plutarch noted, "people rushed up from all sides, snatched up half-burnt brands, and ran round to the houses of Caesar's slayers to set them on fire."

Fire provided light in a world without electricity, but torches were never devoid of the potential to cause harm. They also signaled at least the potential for violence to break out. In the gospels, we see the threatening use of the torch as well. When Judas finds Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane in the book of John (18:3), it notes: "So Judas came to the garden, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and the Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns, and weapons." Romans regularly used small ceramic oil lamps to light their way in houses and while walking at night, but here the aggressive detachment sent to arrest Jesus is emphatically described by John as brandishing "torches, lanterns, and weapons"
