Hypocrite Dianne Feinstein, in her own words

While Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) recently introduced a weapons ban bill, her anti-gun sentiment – and her message – hasn’t always been consistent. She appeared on PBS’ NewsHour in December and spoke about the legislation.

The PBS host asked Feinstein what she would say to people who support the right to own arms who say “the next thing you‘ll be after is concealed carry weapons, you’ll be after other kinds of gun rights?”

“That’s just not true” Feinstein replied. “It’s not what I’ve done in the past and it’s not what I’m doing right now.”

But in a 1995 video, Feinstein tells a different story.

“If I could’ve gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them, Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.”

In another 1995 video, Feinstein spoke at a U.S. Senate hearing on terrorism shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing. She admitted she had a concealed carry permit, explaining that during the 1970′s she was the target of a terrorist group and needed it for protection.

“I know the sense of helplessness that people feel. I know the urge to arm yourself because that’s what I did,” Feinstein said. “I was trained in firearms. I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon and I made the determination if somebody was going to try and take me out, I was going to take them with me.”

    This article is citing what a person said almost 20 years ago. Positions evolve in Washington. This is the same kind of tactics both sides of the political spectrum used in the latest Presidential election. Also, weapons allowed in a concealed weapon permit are different than the assault rifles and other large weapons that are restricted in the [assault] weapons band Senator Feinstein introduced.

    It should be constitutional to remove these people from office when they do something stupid such as the first ban didn't work why try it again? These people that we supposedly put in office need to realize that we can take them out of office just as fast. With a majority vote of the people to have them removed. Either do as the We The People ask or be removed. Do not decide what to do based on your own personal agenda or face removal.
