Dianne Feinstein’s Hypocritical Concealed Carry Flashback: “I know the urge to arm yourself because that’s what I did.” [Video]

Hypocritical fascist cow.

“Less than twenty years ago I was the target of a terrorist group. It was the New World Liberation Front. They blew up power stations and put a bomb at my home when my husband was dying of cancer. And the bomb didn’t detonate. [...] I was very lucky. But, I thought of what might have happened. Later the same group shot out all the windows of my home. [...] And, 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’d walk to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out, I was going to take them with me.”

Jeff G at Protein Wisdom posits a frightening hypothetical scenario:

If Dianne Feinstein grants herself the right to self protection, how on earth can she justify denying you your right to do the same. For Feinstein, an “assault weapon” is merely a weapon that cosmetically looks frightening to her. That is, her ban is (and was) nothing but a ban on aesthetics

And that’s because the general mechanism used by “assault weapons” to fire bullets — one squeeze, one round — is the same as with nearly every pistol and revolver still extant, including I’d bet the one Feinstein herself concealed and carried. And the only other readily available guns sold legally are single-load, manual bolt-action rifles that, against two or more armed assailants who, let’s say, break into your home wielding semi-automatic pistols, would prove useless, even were you to hit and kill one of your attackers with the first shot. Because you simply couldn’t reload the gun quickly enough to get off a second shot before that second assailant was able to empty the entirety of his magazine in your direction….

Levin is livid; “this video needs to go viral”.
