The Sacramento Bee
Comment by Jim Campbell
The Sacramento Bee has reported this morning that Senator Feinstein has suggested the 2012 election year is not ideal for gun debate.
Blinded by her personal emotions while failing to consider FBI statistics that show when law-abiding citizens possess weapons crime rates go down she remains undaunted.
Feinstein would do well to pay attention to a former colleague, Daniel Patrick Moynihan who said, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.”
With the arrogant and condescending Feinstein and the rest of her progressive/socialist colleagues, facts are troublesome as they get in the way of their flawed logic.
In the last sentence of this article Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson challenged Feinstein on Fox by saying the issue wasn’t about guns, but rather “sick, demented individuals.” Feinstein disagreed, saying “people use these weapons because they can get them.”
Each time a tragedy happens as in Aurora, Colorado the 79-year-old senator attempt to add more gun laws to the books. Deranged sociopaths are going to kill and guns aren’t the issue, perhaps the senator would prefer to have an entire building blown up using a bomb planted by the deranged or and actual terrorist?
Sen. Dianne Feinstein says the nation needs to have a “sane” discussion on gun control and ban military-style assault weapons. A misnomer in that military assault rifles are fully automatic but it sure has a nice ban this type of weapon ring to it doesn’t it?
But the California Democrat acknowledges that probably won’t happen before the November election. Nor should it as the Second Amendment of the Bil or Rights clearly states in the video above.
Feinstein tells “Fox News Sunday” that “people haven’t rallied” in years because of the power and reach of the gun lobby, and that with the election looming, “it’s a bad time to embrace a new subject.”
President Barack Obama called for reinstating the ban during his 2008 presidential campaign. But since his election, he hasn’t worked to get that done or back other proposals.
