Gotcha! Feinstein: All Vets are Mentally-ill & Gvt should prevent 'em from owning Guns!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Thu, 03/07/2013 - 23:29
DiFi's own words, directly from CSPAN transcript:
if you’re going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated [as in any level of PTSD] for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon.

During the Senate Judiciary meeting today to markup a potpourri of bills designed to deny the American people their rights under the Second Amendment and disarm them, Senator Dianne Feinstein opposed an amendment to her so-called assault weapons ban legislation that would allow veterans to continue buying firearms the bill would outlaw.
Feinstein basically said all veterans have PTSD and should have their Second Amendment stripped. In response to the amendment, she said the following:
…this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was effect… and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States… that included active military. The problem with expanding this is that you know with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this. So you know I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to — if you’re going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon.
The comments are included in the C-Span video below.
Thankfully, Feinstein’s bill will most certainly be dead on arrival and – for now – the American people (with the exception of Americans unfortunate enough to live in New York state) will have their Second Amendment rights spared.
** It's pretty self-explanatory; despite how hyperbolic the headline may seem, if you read her own words, much like her automatic assumption that all gun owners are somehow all evil, DiFi presumes the same for all non-active military.
So Feinstein's essentially saying that she's assuming all who are not active military, as in ALL veterans, whom she doesn't know personally, are presumed to be mentally ill/suffering from PTSD (regardless of how minor or severe) until she or someone from her ilk determines to be otherwise!
Basically, guilty until proven innocent, just like how all govt tyrants delude.
Nothing new. Her yap is a gift that keeps on giving, just like Biden...without all his bemusing zingers.
