Gun control has given way to domain control.
In the aftermath of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, US Senator and gun control supporter Dianne Feinstein plans to introduce legislation banning so-called assault weapons, but in the meantime a firearms and military supply store that supports Second Amendment rights has registered her domain name.
SenatorFeinstein.com has been registered by Ares Armor, a gun parts and accessories shop in California.
At the top of the page, the website says “Coming Soon! Senator Feinstein’s Biggest Fan Page!”
A posting on the new website reads as follows:
“I do not need to be told by a politician or a lawyer what the meaning liberty is…
“What do you really think you are going to get by attempting to disarm the American Public? I hope that peace is possible but I Promise you that there are many in this country who will uphold their oath to defend the constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic.
” Try it! Lets see what happens… “
Ares Armor CEO Dimitrios Karras launched the SenatorFeinstein.com domain earlier this month. Karras told The Daily Caller that comments on the site won’t be moderated:
“Karras said that he was frustrated when he saw how Feinstein and other members of Congress managed the commenters that criticize them on their Facebook pages, and that he wanted to have platform where people could say whatever they wanted.
” ‘[Feinstein's] got a big mouth on her, she thinks she’s pretty much the queen of the state. She almost thinks she’s the queen of the country,’ he said.”
Karras added that he plans to also register a domain for California’s other Democrat US senator, Barbara Boxer.
Notwithstanding Feinstein’s efforts to re-enact the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004, the White House apparently seems to be backpedaling on the ban of assault weapons because it doesn’t have enough votes in the Senate even among Democrats, according to the New York Times:
” … the White House has calculated that a ban on military-style assault weapons will be exceedingly difficult to pass through Congress and is focusing on other measures it deems more politically achievable …
“… given the entrenched opposition from gun rights groups and their advocates on Capitol Hill, the White House is trying to avoid making its passage the sole definition of success and is emphasizing other new gun rules that could conceivably win bipartisan support and reduce gun deaths.”
