In all the reams of reaction over the cinema shootings in Aurora, Colo., California Sen. Dianne Feinstein was one of the few to introduce politics—albeit glancingly–into the national outpouring of sadness.
“It is with great sorrow that I follow the news of today’s tragedy in Colorado,” Feinstein said in a written statement. “My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and families of this senseless violence.

When the Los Angeles Times, tells the truth about Dianne Feinstein as they do below take it to the bank, she’s losing her MO!
Feinstein will use any occasion even the time to mourn the dead to push her anti-Second Amendment zealotry. This is once again evidenced by her statements immediately following this tragedy.
“Today is a time for grieving,” Feinstein went on, “but my hope is the country will also reflect on the roots of gun violence that has again visited terror on an American community, claiming the lives of more innocents.” Sing it to us Dianne following your logic, a pen or a pencil has to be the cause of a misspelled word.
It would seem that only you and your anti 2nd Amendment progressives believe guns are the issue. Perhaps you have forgotten the night club bombings in Bali? The needless slaughter of innocent civilians when the mentally ill followers of Mohammad strap on a homicide vest? You would prefer this type of violence in a theater near you?
You live in a bubble, you don’t listen to your constituents, because you don’t care about them. Your only goal now seems to be your election to a 5th term. That’s just not going to happen.
Feinstein’s outspokenness is not surprising. It fits her persona. But it also reflects the role that gun violence has played in her decades-long political career.
A longtime champion of gun control, Feinstein was the principal sponsor of a 1994 nationwide assault weapons ban, which has since expired despite Feinstein’s outspoken support.
Earth to Dianne, it’s time for a quick message to the green constituents to whom you pander. The Penguin population’s safety can no longer be assured.

She recounted that dramatic day in a charged exchange during the Senate fight over the assault weapons ban, after then-Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho suggested that the “gentle-lady from California” needed to become “a little bit more familiar with firearms and their deadly characteristics.”
“Senator,” she replied witheringly, “I know something about what firearms can do.”
