Since this law has little if any chance of affecting criminals.... Since this law requires law abiding citizens to allow search and siezure... Since this law requires license and fees from law abiding citizens who own guns... Since this law tracks gun ownership of law abiding citizens... Since this law prohibits law abiding citizens from selling or transferring their property... Why would the federal government feel a need to control law abiding citizens this way? Could it be that an armed society is a society of constituents and an unarmed society is politically impotent?

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...
