“We did away with machine guns because of how they’re used. I think we should do away with assault weapons because of how they’re used. And you can use a 12 gauge shotgun and have a good defensive effect, and there’s the element of surprise.” – Senator Diane Feinstein

  1. Yeah, element of surprise-how many of us are so blind we cannot see a Mossie 500 coming. Damn DiFi, wake up and smell the coffee……

      • And live in a spacious dwelling with room to maneuver in a jurisdiction that doesn’t prohibit discharge of Biden-warning shots.

        DiFi is an aging anti 2A extremist and gun prohibitionist who I encourage to continue embarrassing herself with senior moments and running her yap.

        The sheeple in CA who vote for her are mostly too brain dead to care, and her words will continue to coalesce the pro 2A constituents in this state and nationwide.

        • All pro gun pro 2A organizations and constituents should relentlessly continue to push back, expose the misleading lies and rhetoric, educate the public and encourage self defense responsibility in an ongoing effort to correct the mistaken characterizations of gun owners and gun sports put forth by the gun grabbers and their mamby pamby media servants.

          Repeated, relentless education of the public by getting the facts out there will be the best counter measure to the instant “I told you so” that will erupt from the anti gunners and the media when another shooting tragedy involving kids occurs.

          It is, unfortunately, a fact of our society today those immoral sociopaths will at times revert to their uninhibited hunter/killer origins and perpetrate tragedies. Even though they are cowards who have no true commitment to their evil acts, the only way to stop them is by force or the threat of force.

          We must be prepared for the renewed onslaught from those grabbers and their willful followers who would abdicate their self defense to the fortunes of “chance”.

  2. Obviously they want to make us like all the other disarmed populations which with a lot of permits and expense, can have a shotgun if they show “need”. That is what they mean when they say they respect the 2nd Amendment. She truly is an evil and dangerous thing. I am glad she is so elderly, so I know she won’t be around for too much longer. Truly, just a horrible person.
    Total nut case.

    • we can’t let ourselves become lax with our win. Now is the time to re-double our efforts if we compromise, we lose.

  3. Well, I’m glad she stopped the evil machine guns from killing people. I guess no one told her that NFA registered full auto weapons have only been used in 3 crimes since 1933: all were committed by police. The police exemption must work well…

    • I’m more confounded by the notion she seems to have that a homeowner jolted out of sound sleep at 2AM by unknown intruders has the element of surprise. The element of surprise was just had, it woke you up.

  4. I could remember growing up in Southern California in the 80’s & 90’s. I can assure anyone reading this – “we” did not get rid of machine guns. I remember hearing them in the streets from time to time. They are most certainly on our streets and there is a good chance they are being wielded by someone who cannot legally buy cigarettes and almost certainly buy someone who cannot legallybuy booze.

    • Yep. Full auto AK-47s went for $200 from many a trunk in LA. Many of them to typically law-abiding families who were tired of the authorities doing nothing while they had their houses shot up night after night by drive by’s. I recall a 60 Minutes report at the time where a father showed his AK, telling of his trunk purchase made in desperation after police refused to respond because his neighborhood was too dangerous. He just wanted to protect his kid, but felt he had to become a law-breaker himself just to do so.

  5. As i understand the laws in MA, you cannot just go buy a mossburg 500, you need more than a background check. You need to be on the pre-approved list. Would she support fixing the laws so that people can go buy a mossburg 500 and walk out of the store same day?

    “how they are used” is a pretty low bar for a gun ban. maybe handguns should be banned because of “how they were used” at VA tech.

    • All you need is the commie FID card, money and a NICS check. I almost snagged a mossberg this week. Maybe next week.

    • In response to “maybe handguns should be banned because of ‘how they were used’ at VA tech.”: Well, yeah. That’s precisely the argument the proponents of citizen disarmament would make.

  6. Is she still packing her pistola? I vaguely remember her going armed years ago and saying something to the effect that if attacked, she may not survive but at least she’ll take the SOBs with her … or something like that.

    Maybe she’s found a way to tuck that double barrel 12 GA (per uncle Joe) under her skirt. Anyone want to look and see?

    eewwww!

  7. Damn near every one of the cops in Watertown was equipped with an “assault rifle”. They obviously think that’s the best tool for the job. Seeing as I would have to protect my family from the exact same threat for which they chose an “assault rifle”, why would I settle for anything else? I’m supposed to accept that all I need is whatever DiFi will allow me when I don’t have body armor, a team of guys to back me up, or a tank?

    • And had no qualms about pointing them at innocent families of Watertown being ejected from their homes during the “4th Amendment? What 4th Amendment?” failed house raids last week.

  8. So if this is correct, and a shotgun is enough…why did the majority of police searching Watertown, MA have M4 Carbines and AR-15s?? Why use those when a shotgun is enough? Answer me that and then I’ll be willing to entertain her position…

    • Collateral damage and lack of range, methinks. Whereas defense is close-in.

      Stupid, if logically consistent, but it’s what she’d answer.

  9. Ms. Feinstein and Hilter have the same opinion:

    These can be found in Hitler’s Table Talk, 1941-1944: Secret Conversations with the English translation copyrighted 1953 by Weidenfeld and Nicolson.

    Consider this often-cited passage, from Part Three: 6 February – 7 September 1942:

    The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police.

  10. Gosh, Dianne, if only the Islamic terrorist Boston bombers would have listened to your sage counsel. But they didn’t. Now they’re dead. Maybe you should start a new campaign: “Shotguns Save Lives 2013”!

    Creepy old witch.

  11. This is the mindless pontification from ELECTED representatives DECIDING when, where and how one can protect themselves. If not voted out of OUR office, more restrictions are coming.

  12. > We did away with machine guns because of how they’re used. I think we should
    > do away with assault weapons because of how they’re used.

    Exactly how are they used? In 0.001% of all crimes? We should expends resources for something that happens less than 1% of the time?

  13. I think the only “element of surprise” is when her husband rolls over in bed and see’s her face every morning.

  14. Dear Politicians and Hollywood Elitists:

    We don’t need your advice with regards to selecting the appropriate firearm to defend ourselves and our families.

    Sincerely,

    Everyone With a Brain

  15. See, this is why I gave up fishing. It’s creepy the way that you know the fish is dead, the fish knows it’s dead, but the body thrashes around as if clinging to a cruel parody of life.

    • lost me there, i love me my fishing. if u dont wanna kill em catch and release. if your gonna eat em dispatch em quickly with a stick. pretty simple.

    • Read between the lines. They’ve purposely skipped the logical progression that gun owners use for self-defense: AR-15, then handguns, then shotguns. What does that tell you? After the anti-‘s take the AR-15’s away, they’re going after handguns. Might as well get it on record now that they never advocated handguns for self-defense.

  16. Here’s why AR-15s are awesome. Watch how two hardened, gun-toting thugs flee in terror when confronted by a man with a semi-auto rifle.

    If he’d taken Biden’s advice, he’d be out of ammo after those two shots, and those thugs don’t look like the type who’ll politely wait for him to reload.

  17. The funny thing about DiFi is that she bears a huge responsibility for the surge in the popularity of the AR platform. I never even considered buying an AR until she told me I can’t. I now have multiple AR’s because I found out how much fun they can be. I know I’m not the only one either.

  18. Maybe we could credit her with the fact that a lot of people hit by a shotgun blast are surprised? Ummmm… surprised by seeing large parts of themselves that shouldn’t see daylight? Ummmm… I don’t know what the surprise part would be except the always surprising, ‘I didn’t think I would die/face resistance’, part of criminal acts.

    Let’s just credit her with having such a well paying career and yet being such an idiot.

  19. Has anyone been through an aging relative or friend’s slide into dementia? Sometimes the slide takes years. Characterized by irrational fixation on some issue, inability to process new information, outbursts of frustration, etc?

  20. Well, They finally found Amelia Airhead. Next up, why ma barker feinswine & batboy deserve to run all aspects of your lives, Randy

  21. aren’t we all so grateful the Imperial Federal government is going to pick and choose what “weapons” we are allowed in order to satisfy our 2A rights…. well, that and the fact that they are still going to allow the little people to hunt.

  22. “Well how about a machine gun?”………………….

    Well no shit Sherlock…………why not? If 5-O has them, WE should have them!

    It has been stated before, it will be party time when this old crone sleeps with the fishes………….

  23. As we all know, the 2A isn’t about home defense or hunting; its about providing the last and final check in the checks and balances form of government that we’re supposed to have. The antis know this too, that’s why they’re always trying to make it about personal defense or hunting and showing us all of the tools they’re “graciously” allowing us to keep for these purposes.

    The “Ar-15 vs shotgun for home defense” debate can be presented so that there’s not a clear winner.

    However, in the “AR-15 vs shotgun for defense of the Constitution” debate is much more difficult to present the shotgun as even a close 2nd place.

  24. I think we should do away with elitist politicians because they misuse their power. DiFi’s arrogance barometer is off the charts.

  25. The irony here is that federal law defines any firearm with a bore over .50″ to be a destructive device. Specific exemptions were made for shotguns because they have a “sporting purpose”.

    She’s recommending the use of a weapon that does MUCH greater damage at the range these spree shooters are engaging targets.

  26. She makes my skin crawl…I too couldn’t bring myself to watch the video. No need to though, I’ve already heard all of her 2nd Amendment hate speeches and she’s starting to annoy me. It’s time she recognizes her own irrelevancy and jumps off a cliff with Schummer and Cuomo….
