Sen. Feinstein’s gun control bill  exempts government officials

Sen. Dianne Feinstein: Gun control for thee but not for me?

The draconic gun control bill introduced last week by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., specifically exempts “government officials.” As a sitting U.S. senator, Feinstein is a government official.

“Mrs. Feinstein’s measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials, law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel,” the Washington Times reported.

Discounting the exceptions to her bill, one would assume her to be a gun control absolutist, and indeed her words generally bear this out.

“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 ‘em all in — I would’ve done it. I could not do that, the votes weren’t here,” she told CBS News’ “60 Minutes” on Feb. 5, 1995.

Two months later, on April 27, Feinstein spoke at the U.S. Senate hearing on a totally different issue — terrorism — requiring her to switch gears with respect to firearms. This occurred shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing. At that hearing, she made the following remarks, according to CNSNews:

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

Gun control for thee but not for me?
