Pope John Paul II (courtesy christtotheworld.blogspot.com)

“I do not agree that Feinstein is a hypocrite on guns. Her office tells me that her old revolver was melted down and turned into a cross presented to Pope John Paul II. Feinstein has not tried to ban handgun ownership. She concentrated on assault weapons and wrote a bill that banned 157 ‘military-style assault weapons,’ but also exempted 2,200 existing firearms. She believes that she is protecting the rights of most gun owners.” – “Token Conservative” Debra J Saunders, in Feinstein’s gun-packing history [via sfgate.com]

    • Ding-ding-ding!!! Shall not be infringed leaves little room for interpretation! She’s a hypocrite and tyrant just the same. I hope she’s crushed under the weight of her cross!

    • Righties do the same thing. Or have you forgotten Reagan’s decisive support of AWB in 94, Bush Jr., Nixon, Bush Sr. The list goes on. If history has taught us anything, it is that you can NEVER trust ANY politician. Under the skin, there is NO difference. They are ALL out to screw us.

      that is why we must be always vigilant, never let up the pressure on any of them.

      • Even the ones who wrote “shall not be infringed?”

        They’re mostly just joes trying to do a job that makes herding mice look easy.

        Even DF believes that she’s working for the common good, however misguided she is on some things.

        But yes, what is good and what is not good can be a muddle, sowe must indeed be vigilant.

        • Common good, maybe ultimately, yes. However, in order to bring about said positive change, you need to stay in office. Which is why everyone tends to follow the herd in D.C., and work really hard to pass controversial legislation outside election years.

          The stage is set for the emergence of third parties as the Republicans continue to go the way of the Whigs. Getting candidates in office at the state and local levels should be the first step; then think about the national stage.

        • You are both correct; even the very deluded often believe they are doing right. It must be cumbersome to balance that thought and the knowledge you are intentionally cordoning someone else’s freedom, simultaneously.

          What is more troubling is that these folks (left and yes, sometimes “right’), indemnify themselves from the majority of their dictates. It takes a special kind of evil to be able to reconcile that in one’s mind.

        • “Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.”

          ― Robert A. Heinlein

    • Only a righty would sell a raft of modern-day blue laws as reduced and limited government. They should go into huckstering.

        • Just tired of seeing political nonsense invading a sensible discussion; notice to what I was replying. M’self, I’m a rabidly centrist individualist. Hmmm…

  1. Thank God the Imperial Federal government is protecting the rights of most gun owners. Just like Senator Cruz said, they will also protect “most” Americans from unreasonable search and seizure, freedom of speech, etc. If you are an exception, then you are screwed.

  2. emphasis on the “token” conservative. I read her bio, shes from MA, where even the republicans are communists.

  3. Only a righty would try to sell modern day blue laws as limited government. They should go into huckstering.

  4. I wonder when protecting the rights of “most” citizens became acceptable in America.

    Further proof the modern progressive is a true domestic enemy.

  5. WTF does it matter if she melted it down? The fact remains that she carried it when she felt threatened. She sure as shit didn’t carry around a cross made from a melted gun at the time.

    Only a moron San Fran writer could come up with something as stupid as this. Oh and yeah, Dummy Debra, Feinstein is irrevocably on record wanting to ban handguns. Look it up you putz it’s not hard to find.

  6. The democrats always say they are attacking 2nd amendment right for the good of the people, but their actions tell a different story. They go after firearms that will have no affect on crime rates, but interestingly, will have a significant impact on peoples ability to defend themselves from a tyrannical government. This lady is about as righteous as any other minion of a typical dictatorship.

  7. How can u sit there an say she’s not trying to ban hand guns when she’s going after the clip that goes in it . By banning the clip it bans the gun and or makes it useless
    And if she hates guns so much why would she ever melt down a gun and make a cross for a man of the church I’d would have thought she want to be the farthest away from that cold steel . So in reality the pope is wearing a gun on his neck

    • Its a very clumsy adaptation of Isaiah 2:4. I am reasonably sure she has no idea where the thought originates or that she has ever seen the inside of a Bible. In fact, I don’t think would know which “holy book” is read right to left as opposed to left to right.

      She may also have justified the act as a kind of indulgence. She is after all, medieval in her general thinking.

  8. Why didn’t she melt it down and give it to her good buddy Jim Jones? They knew each other pretty well back in the good ol’ days in San Fran.

    Oh wait.

  9. “She believes that she is protecting the rights of most gun owners.”

    Sure, and I bet Bull Connor thought he was protecting the rights of most blacks.

  10. Senator “I Am Not A Sixth Grader” melts her gun, makes a cross, and gives it to some guy in Rome. Take something “evil”, make something “Holy” then give it to the leader of the institution responsible for one of if not THE largest killing spree in history. Inquisition anyone? Wow a gift to the great leader of the institution that protects its child molesters…….. “we need to do this for the children”

    • HAHAHAHAHAHA! How true!

      So Di shows her respect for a Pope with the turning of a symbol of power into a symbol of sacrifice. Did the Pope point out to Di that she still supports abortion
      while the church does not, that this confirms her hypocrisy? Jesus said, ” Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!” Di, we see through you.

  11. DiFi supported the San Francisco attempt to ban handguns. She has called for banning all semi-autos. Even if government ever passes new illegal laws calls banning semi-auto handguns it is only a matter of time before they go for revolvers. BTW, she was trained (somewhat) in how to use the revolver given to her by the police. She was never trained comprehensively in firearms.

  12. Boy, she really is a dumb bitch, she knows freedom of religion is a amendment as well??? I was brought up K-8th and 9th-12th at an Catholic middle and high school. These left wing morans will stoop to all ends of the earth to try and make their point!!! Next Dianne F, going to say she talked to god himself, and he said to hell with the guns, comon really. I am getting PISSED OFF NOW!! Wheres the proffesionalism here??? Isn’t D F jewish?? And shs bringing into the game CATHOLICS. WHY?? These gun grabber nuts are the people that arent NORMAL!! If this topic was on any other suject, you would never see so much unpofessional responses! Heres a msg to all the left wing gun grabbers, DONT TREAD ON US! Your carears will be ending after the next election! Dont worry though, the president spent billions so you can get a job at 7-11! You guys have awoken a giant, maybe you have not heard of it before, I know the president hasnt. DEMOCRACY!!! Cant wait to vote this go around, all pro gun!!! ALL THE WAY TO THE HILL!!

  13. We banned the Toyota Camry/Corola, Ford Focus/Fusion ,Honda Civic, Ford Escape Nissan Maxima/Altima and the F150 but exempted the Gremlin, Pacer, Edsel,Vega,Corvair,Pinto and Aztec so your freedom of choice has hardly been compromised

  14. Who esle out there thnks this is so far out in left field, your going to need radar to find it?? lol Its not even funny when these ass’s are running things for a while. TILL NEXT VOTE!! lol

  15. She’s on record advocating for total disarmament, and only the utter impossibility of getting it passed stopped her from proposing it.

  16. I agree with this — Feinstein is not a hypocrite on guns.

    She fully and legitimately hates them, and probably always has, even when — and especially because — she owned one.

    She fears and hates gun owners, and that phobia is all the more potent because she was one once. She’s trying to erase the taint of evil in herself (because she had a gun once) by erasing that evil from all the land. Except that it’s impossible. The fearful evil she’s trying to fight was in her own heart all along…it’s always there in everyone, buried deeply in most and spilling out in some…and she can’t face it.

  17. Anyone remember John F Kerry medals? He tossed em on the WH lawn but then they magicaly appeared framed in his office after 9-11 and he denied ever having tossed em?

    Progressives are sociopaths, sociopaths are physicaly incapable of feeling remorse for their actions

  18. Sanders is the paper’s token conservative. She usually make pretty good sense. But she’s obviously not a gun person.

  19. Whether Dianne Feinstein melted the weapon for which she at one time had a concealed carry permit down or not, and whether or not she retains a California CCW permit, the fact remains that she, as a United States Senator, continues to have access, by proxy, to the means of self-defense that she would deny to us lesser folks. She therefore she remains a hypocrite, as far as I am concerned.

    • Unless she personally supervised the conversion from gun to cross, I’ll bet that gun still exists and an enterprising blacksmith has it or sold it to someone else!

  20. Melted that gun down? She should have slipped it to some poor kid who could have used it to stop a Catholic priest from molesting him.
