Government officials exempted from gun control law

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 permissible, 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 truth is if a lie is repeated enough it becomes the truth and once the truth is lost it is almost impossible to regain it. What frustrates me is there are all kinds of stats to show that gun control increases death and crime almost by 20% overall . Is this what they want more deaths so they can eventually take all guns ?

    Shouldn’t be a surprise. For decades government officials have been exempted from the laws they impose on others. That was especially true for Social Security.

    In the Dark ages the politicians lied constantly and the so called priests also lied constantly it appears to me we are heading back to the Dark ages , there was no right and wrong it was what ever the moment brought and there by ones property was never safe as long as the elites wanted it they just took it and banned the owner to either away or in prison or dead. It sounds very much like what is going down today as the politicians are lying and the priests are also lying by getting in to bed with Islam and saying there are many ways to heaven .The Lord is saying come now but many will not heed that call and wind up being cast out and cut off from their people . The elites have their clutches on our government and will soon have their dirty hands on everyone’s property . Situational ethics and morals leads to a Sodom type country .
