Gotcha! Feinstein: All Vets are Mentally-ill & Gvt should prevent 'em from owning Guns!

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.

Feinstein: All vets are mentally ill and government should prevent them from owning firearms

Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com | March 7, 2013

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.

I can see you've misunderstood

I DON'T AGREE WITH GUN LAWS. As a matter of fact, I have NO PROBLEM with a felon owning a gun SURPRISE! But as a comparison, I DO have a problem with giving a blind person a drivers license and putting them behind the wheel. I would also not hand a 5 year old child a firearm without first making sure they could handle it.

Having said that, I will re-post what you conveniently chose not to answer:

"So now let me get this straight; You would blindly hand out a firearm to ANY American regardless of mental capacity, correct? After all, NO WHERE in the 2nd Amendment did it say anything about NOT giving a weapon to a completely blind, completely armless, or mentally disabled person right? I guess by your better judgement you would have also done exactly what got Chris Kyle killed as well."

Nothing wrong with being passionate - but you are letting your emotions get the better of you. Calm down and think.


sorry I did not read your post before posting mine above.

Just read your post above as well - hope people take heed

Thanks I was beginning to think I was alone here. The last thing I want is for this group of "critical thinkers" to start sinking to "their" levels. If this trend continues, it will surely be the end of us. I guess it's to be expected as many new people that are still "half" awake come to the forum and/or join the liberty movement. Old habits die hard. My previous critique though, was directed at those of us that should know better.

Diane Feinstein, Senator Is A Crook And Traitor

Diane Feinstein, Senator Is A Crook And Traitor

  1. Dianne Feinstein has funneled over 1 billion in contracts to her husband Richard Blum's URS ... just one of his companies... She has also with our money helped him profiteer from bank... foreclosures.
  2. She was forced to resign from the military construction appropriations subcommittee...but is still head of the intelligence committee! though she deliberately falsified intelligence.... authority to rain fire and death on Iraq.

Feinstein is not mature

Feinstein, it is getting increasingly difficult to see maturity in your way of thinking.

Is there a way to have her admitted?

Hey sounds like a great

recruitment slogan for the military.

"Come and serve and then lose your right to possess a firearm ever again"

Paradox... Ms Feinstein is.

Comment, January 2013:
Dianne Feinstein owns a concealed carry. She voted for the Iraq war and she and her husband Richard Blum made millions selling arms to the military. Yes her husband is an arms manufacturer. They own a company called Perini. She is a war profiteer. Unconstitutional laws aren't laws, they are fascism. In her view it's okay for her to have a gun and to send your children to war while profiting from it, but you shouldn't be able to own a weapon and defend yourself.

Fun fact: Tutor Perini wholly owns Rudolph & Sletten

Rudolph & Sletten is the contractor that built Solyndra's Fremont, California manufacturing facility in 2009... the one they paid for with the $535M loan from Obama. Strange, I wonder how much of that money went straight into this rich bitch's pockets.

News to me. Thanks.


Breitbart News found evidence... inappropriate influence from the period when Feinstein served on the Military Construction Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Subcommittee (MILCON), which supervises military construction and oversees quality of life concerns for veterans, including the building of clinics and hospitals for wounded soldiers and housing for military families.
Financial disclosure reports from 2001-2005 indicate that MILCON--under Feinstein’s leadership--cleared appropriations that were eventually funneled as $1.551 billion worth of military construction contracts to URS Corporation, a San Francisco-based engineering services firm, and Perini (now Tutor Perini), both partially owned by her husband’s investment firms (and their investors) at the time (URS reportedly earned $791 million, and Perini earned $759 million). Public records reportedly show that Blum paid only $4 a share for the Perini stock, but was able to sell three million shares in 2005 for $23.75 each. (Federal lawmakers are required to file financial disclosure statements under the Ethics in Government Act of 1978. The forms are published each year to disclose any potential conflicts of interest with their or their spouses' business decisions.) http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/06/Dianne-Fe...

Oh, well there's the problem!

She clearly doesn't believe the Ethics in Government Act of 1978 applies to her, on account of completely lacking ethics and all.

Feinstein responsible for Ethics? She is assigned to reform.

Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (Chairman)

Senate Committee on Appropriations: The Senate Appropriations Committee writes the legislation that allocates federal funds to the numerous government agencies, departments, and organizations on an annual basis.

Senate Committee on Rules and Administration: The Senate Committee on Rules and Administration is responsible for issues that include election, campaign finance and ethics reform. The Committee provides oversight over such institutions as the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian, and the National Zoo. It also oversees the standing rules of the Senate and administers the Congressional Office Buildings

Collins, NRA also couldn’t stop thanking Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who helped pass legislation to fund the park and get the land transferred from the Bureau of Land Management to the county. “People can come up here thanks to Senator Harry Reid for a nominal amount of money and can shoot and enjoy the recreation that’s affordable and available to folks in the West,” Collins said. “This is just a tremendous opportunity.”

Reid issued his own statement from Washington recognizing the opening of the park. “This park is a symbol of the good things that are possible when Nevadans come together to solve problems,” he said. “Through the establishment of the Clark County Shooting Park, we have a state-of-the-art (facility) that will bring visitors from around the world, including military and law enforcement personnel.”

The park is now open for use on the weekends and will be open full-time beginning in January. The cost to use the park is $7 per day for rifles, pistols and archery and $6 per 25-bird round for shotguns.

What opened Saturday is just the first $61 million and 178-acres of the facility, which was funded by the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act. Herry Reid: http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2009/dec/19/clark-county-sho...

yup, except with these govt terrorists, they get to determine

who is, or is not. And worse, get to decide to lock you up, indefinitely, if they so choose to do so.

Or, worst, be a victim of their murders, if one were so bold as to not comply.
