Senator Feinstein and Governor Cuomo: we don't need a conversation about guns, we just need to ban, register or confiscate them

Talking can come later.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has already gone on record as saying,
“Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”
Senator Diane Feinstein's proposed new "assault weapons ban" would also ban almost every pistol in the US that has a "detachable magazine" and would require retroactive registration and background checks for every single gun owner in America who legally purchase any weapon on her list. 

So much for the folks who wanted soul-searching and a serious national discussion.

Man I missed this... FISA is up for a vote today. I totally missed it coming.

The bill has an expiration date on this upcoming Monday or midnight 12/31/12

Afterwards, warrants will again be needed to spy on digital media.

The Beltway strongholders (Feinstein, Reid, McCullogh) are trying to force it through with limited debate....

Here is the Google link to get you started.

Debate begins at 11 and the vote is sometime today. The extension btw is for 5 more years...

I didn't know anything about it until an hour ago... Wow! , We could use some outrage!!!

Amendments offered today...
"One would require the NSA to produce a rough estimate of how many Americans’ communications are intercepted under the sweeping“vacuum cleaner” style programs authorized by FAA, which they have thus far refused to do, probably in part because the number would be distressingly high."
Distressingly high would be ALL depending upon how you define "intercept". The collection facility in Utah is nearing completion. NSA can store ALL internet communications there and only "intercept" the ones they want to examine.

It's never been a "national conversation."

The anti-gun folks don't want a conversation. They want to lecture us and ban guns, as always.
