I'm surprised no one has submitted a bill for the ban on pencils and pens, knitting needles, crochet hooks, scissors, icy roads, wet roads, fire, spray paint (huffers), knives, cars, trucks, planes, trains and ships. All of these are items have been known to kill people and can do so again.

The New Year is just around the corner and although the Senate still hasn't made a fiscal cliff deal, Senator Diane Feinstein already has parts of new gun control legislation ready to go. Two Sunday's ago on NBC's Meet the Press, Feinstein talked about giving President Obama a bill he can "lead on" and used the term assault weapon loosely.

Feinstein has posted a summary of what the legislation will cover, which inculdes a ban on semi-automatic handguns and shotguns in addition to rifles. The legislation also requires registration...
