Posted to the White House petition website at http://www.whitehouse.gov/share-your-thoughts-reducing-gun-violence. Gun control ISN'T what should be discussed, but uncontroled debt is what will destroy more of our children in the future than any so-called assault weapon. But, by disarming "We The People" you can also ignore their 1st Amendment right to petition for a governmental redress of grievances, unless you call the farcical White House Petition website such redress.

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...
