NOT BREAKING: Sen. Feinstein Calls for an Assault Weapon Ban After LAX Shooting

I wonder if the Senator has a post-shooting pro-assault weapons ban script pre-loaded on her Google glasses. “The weapon [used in Friday’s LAX shooting] is clearly designed not for general consumption,” California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein said on CBS’ Face the Nation. “Would I do a bill? Sure, I would do a bill. I mean, I believe this down deep in my soul.” Soul food for thought: Senator Feinstein doesn’t think an assault weapon ban would pass. On the opposing side, I think, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee told CNN’s State of the Union “TSA officers are not armed. It’s the local police that provide perimeter security, and there’s little more of a soft target outside the checkpoint,” Texas Republican Rep. Mike McCaul pronounced. “I want to work with the director of TSA . . . to see if there’s something we can do better or differently.” No mention of allowing open carry in airports and on planes.

    Is there any way to legally get rid of this annoyance of a Senator?

      Natural causes unfortunately. When she goes there will be celebrations everywhere.

      1. avatar BillC says:

        Don’t you know it. I’ve got a special account to throw a party for when she kicks the bucket.

        1. avatar Nathan B says:

          me too, we should combine funds, she is pos that wants to disarm America

      2. avatar dirk diggler says:

        I have a box of cigars and a fifth of bourbon tucked away to bring to the party when we line up to piss on her grave. Hell, if Obama had any sense, he would charge $100 per person for the privilege . . . . national debt problems would go away quickly

        1. avatar Jay1987 says:

          I got a box of ammo set aside for the occasion

    2. avatar Ross says:

      There are two, vote them out or take them out, both are constitutionally protected, and the later is the intent and purpose of the Second Amendment.

      1. avatar BlinkyPete says:

        Take them out? Are you talking about assassination? Idiotic, or idiotically vague comments like that play right into the stereotype people like Mein Feinstein try to paint for us. You might as well be her cheerleader. And if something like that did happen she’d only become a martyr for her own movement and thus far more powerful than she is today.

        Oh, and assassination is in no way, shape or form protected by the constitution, nor the does the security of a free state or the people’s right to keep and bear arms have anything to do with removing from office public officials that we don’t like.

        I don’t like Senator Feinstein at all, but I hate vitriolic rhetoric, particularly when it comes from the side that I want to win.

      Nope, that seat belongs to her as long as she wants it. Just like Schumer, Durbin and the rest of the gang.

        Eventually infirmity will do the job. After all, there are just so many Depends you can put on a chair before you either fall off the pile or poke through the ceiling.

        And as far as her quote “I mean, I believe this down deep in my soul,” I firmly believe she sold her soul a LONG time ago. As in Colonial times. Just sayin’…

  3. avatar Matt in FL says:

    ““The weapon [used in Friday’s LAX shooting] is clearly designed not for general consumption.”

    No, that’s not clear at all. How do you draw that conclusion? That’s like saying that the car used to break a bunch of traffic laws is clearly not designed for general consumption. Once you’ve decided to break the laws, what difference does it make if you’re in a Ford or a Ferrari?

    1. avatar DrVino says:

      This is the same hag who wants to curtail the First Amendment by creating a legal definition of what a “legitimate” “journalist” is. ….

      1. avatar BlinkyPete says:

        Not to mention being a strong supporter of the NSA, the Patriot act and every foreign adventure in warfare we’ve had while she’s been in office. She is literally the worst in a group of generally despicable people from every angle of civil rights and liberties.

    2. avatar racer88 says:

      The most popular rifle in America isn’t “made for general consumption????”

      Try to intellectually reconcile that statement. Then again… don’t. Not possible.

      1. avatar DQ says:

        She used the name MP to elicit its purpose is “only” for military and police use, though its created to target but not limited to that specific group. I suppose that she figured that the uninformed population finally knows that AR stands for Armalite Rifle, not assault rifle. She probably also assumed that because the name is different, the public will believe that it is a select fire rifle with no legitimate purpose in the hands of a civilian.

  4. avatar KevinMA says:

    It took her this long? She’s slipping.

  5. avatar CA.Ben says:

    Which is funny, because it is already illegal to bring a loaded rifle into the airport. And I’m sure that the magazines he used were not pre-ban. And I would put money on the fact that the bullet button was swapped out. And its illegal to kill people!

    So why does Fienstein think that another law will stop people like this? It won’t. The only thing that would have stopped this was an armed citizen. We are our own first responders.

    1. avatar DrVino says:

      It could be argued that if we play out the armed citizen hypothesis, the armed police serve as proxies for the same in said model.
      Once he declared himself a threat, he was quickly neutralized. If there were no others with guns in the terminal, we’d be looking at a very different casualty count.

      1. avatar John Doe says:

        You really can’t call the police a proxy. The police are not going to charge in blindly. It is going to take time for communication and organization. The police do not consider what is behind the target when stopping an active shooter. If the police shoot a law abiding citizen or nine it’s better than allowing the active shooter to continue. I would rather take my chanced with the armed citizen.

    2. avatar JOE MATAFOME says:

      Armed TSA agents would of at least had a fighting chance against this criminal. They made the TSA wait for help to arrive while some wacko is shooting up the place.

      1. avatar BlinkyPete says:

        I am deeply sorry for the guy that was killed, and any TSA agent that was injured, but the last thing I want to do is grant that agency more power. I’m generally okay with almost anyone carrying almost anywhere, but one of the rare situations where I don’t is law enforcement officials in situations where regular civilians aren’t allowed to.

      2. avatar Jus Bill says:

        From what I’ve seen of the TSA “officers” around the country, the very last thing I would do for everyone’s (including their) safety and security is to give them bullets.

    3. avatar Howdy says:

      With great relief, this stopped at one person killed. Sadly, it wasn’t the shooter that started it.

      What stopped it, another defending others. With a gun.

  6. avatar Avid Reader says:

    Feinkenstein has canned material ready for any shooting incident. She’s so predictable it’s pathetic. So is the media-I’m sure she was one of the first calls the producers of the Sunday shows made.

  7. avatar Citizen says:

    Great! Now I just can’t wait to hear what Nancy Pelosi has to say!

    Please, glorious overlords, tell me what I feel about this tragedy!

    1. avatar Defens says:

      Heck, they probably have a generic Feinstein interview or two already in the can, ready to cue up at a moment’s notice.

  8. avatar Andy says:

    How about TSA stops grabbing crotches in the name of security. Next they can stop recruiting with bus shelter ads and pizza box ads. Really, the TSA is full of high functioning retards.

    1. avatar 505markf says:

      “High functioning” may be stretching the truth a bit too far.

      1. avatar Bret says:

        Not if high is the operative word.

    2. avatar Jay1987 says:

      Don’t do that, it may just be the most action any of those employees will ever get.

    3. avatar Craig says:

      The guy who died from this was from some Central American country. Tells you something about who’s volunteering for the TSA.

    4. avatar Ralph says:

      I don’t mind getting felt up by some chubby TSA chick, as long as she buys me a drink and tells me I’m handsome. Hey, a guy likes a little sweet talk, y’know?

      Think of the process as a whole new take on speed dating.

      1. avatar Jay1987 says:

        Interesting… Hey Ralph why not hit up the asian massage joints then?? I mean the girls are sometimes prettier and they don’t know much about our culture so you could tell her anything and get away with it.

  9. avatar Excedrine says:

    Didn’t the Dempublicans allegedly “shelve” their efforts at passing more egregious violations of our Second Amendment rights gun control bills for the remainder of 2013?

    Oh, wait. Wait just a minute, here. I forgot. They’re going to wave the bloody shirt/backpack/bib and stand on the corpses of the victims while they’re still warm and bleeding on the floor to stump for more bullshit that they and all of their sycophantic sheep know won’t work, just so they can sleep better at night.

    How in the flying fuck did he even get a rifle past all that “perimeter security” anyway? What’s next? Metal detectors at the damned front doors?

    Wait.. better not give them any more “bright” ideas! D’oh!

    1. avatar DrVino says:

      “How in the flying fuck did he even get a rifle past all that “perimeter security” anyway? ”

      He put a few rounds center of mass into the unarmed guy who constituted that “perimeter security”.

  23. avatar Jason says:

    According to the Senator, since the gun was called an “M&P” (Military and Police) it is therefor not for “general consumption”. Does that mean that any item used by or designed for military and police should be banned? Police use revolvers at times as back-ups, does she want to ban those? Should Ford Crown Victorias or Dodge Chargers be banned since police often use them as squad cars? How about Hummers? They are used and designed for the military.

    I do not know about you, but I do not trust any politician who wants the ONLY people to be armed to be the police and military and not the citizens. The last time I checked, free nations all have guns on their borders pointing out and nations with populations who are slaves all have guns on their borders but they are pointed in.

    1. avatar Jay1987 says:

      Only the AM General Hummers were designed for the army H2 and H3s I would try takin through a mud puddle they were built just to give cidiots somethin to put 26s on.

    1. avatar Jay1987 says:

      Cars with high capacity engines and non NERF material bumpers with the roof thingy that goes up and those hood shrouds.

        Those cars also have wheel lug mounts. =)

    2. avatar Jason says:

      The liberals always say “if it could save just one life”.

      Well, if that is the case, we need to ban swimming pools, cars, airplanes, vending machines, ladders, hammers, knives, lawn mowers, roofs, rocks, sushi, electricity, prescription drugs, ropes, fists, hands, feet etc. All these items have killed people in the past year. Some were murdered, and some by accident. However, if it is “for the children” or to “save just one life”, then they should all be banned.

    3. avatar Piet Padkos says:

      Why not ban liberals? I’d rather die then hear their whiny voices. That would save more than just one life.

  33. avatar Anonymous says:

    Feinstein has produced another well stated fallacious argument for her Californian flock. Smith & Wesson M&P does stand for military and police – however it was always for the commercial market as well. I mean… There is the M&P 22 and M&P 15 – 22 chambered in 22LR. Are those intended for police too? Just because it says M&P doesn’t mean it is just for military and police. Feinstein would like you to believe all guns are for military and police. Come on – every rifle S&W makes is an M&P. S&W has put an M&P in front of almost all the guns they make.

    WOW, you have got to be kidding me.

    Either Feinstein’s age is showing and she’s beginning to experience dementia or having trouble remembering things, or she is actually unaware that all AR-15 variants are heavily regulated IN HER OWN STATE BY HER OWN LAWS.

  42. avatar Don says:

    Well she finally got it right.

    Instead of blaming some nebulous corporate gun lobby/conspiracy for why gun bans are DOA she’s FINALLY acknowledged that it is the “gun owners and gun people” that don’t want her garbage!
