Feinstein Assault Weapons Ban Amendment FAILS

Dianne Feinstein courtesy fellowshipofminds.files.wordpress.com

Dianne Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban bill wasn’t on the approved list of gun control proposals that were passed out of a Senate committee, mainly because there was no chance in hell of it getting the votes it needed. And now, we understand exactly how unpopular this idea of hers was.

Her amendment to the current gun control bill, which would have tacked on her assault weapons ban provisions, failed by a vote of 40 to 60. It didn’t even get a majority of Senators — and 60 votes were required.

This was Feinstein’s best chance of passing her beloved gun control bill, which would have had no effect on crime, but would have infringed on the Second Amendment rights of millions of law-abiding Americans. But that window has finally closed. President Obama was given the vote he asked for, and the votes came up short.

      Ralph’s right, she’s a Crip – I’d swear that’s gang sign.

      1. avatar Dale says:

        yea pretty sure the 3 fingers up make a W for westcoast and the 3rd finger up + the pinky finger to the left make an L for loser so it would seem she is a banger for the Westcoast Losers….. 🙂

        I think the Crips would be offended you made her a member. 😉

      3. avatar Ralph says:

        The b1tch is Crippin’. I KNEW it!

        1. avatar S.CROCK says:

          i didnt know Crips didnt use standard cap mags.

      The L.A. Times is reporting that D. Franken-Stein made a statement which I have read. She stated “All veterans are MENTALY ILL, and should NOT be allowed to own guns” If there is any mental illness is evident in the pic that TTAG has put up of her. This is NOT a liberal, this is without question,a revisionists, and worse allowed to hold office. CA. must be sanctioned until such time the people come to their senses, and begin voting these morally corupt monsters out of office.

        The woman suffers from PTSD so she feels that the rest of us need to suffer for her pain. She has had only one thing on her mind, disarm Americans so she can feel safer. But I’m sure she will keep her gun and carry permit.

      Looks like Emperor Palpatine from Return of the Jedi, and Golem from Lord of the Rings series had a baby together and he name is Dianne! You have to agree Robert. Get a DNA test.

      1. avatar Will says:

        Actually, in this shot, she reminds me of the predator alien from the Predator movie franchise.

          Its an alien face hugger on a predator alien.

    Today has been a good day

      Unless you live in California. Even 10-22’s will be banned here pretty quick.

        One battle at a time. We win this one, we have a shot at the war.

        1. avatar JPD says:

          Make no mistake, this is a minor victory. We lost the battles in many states with more to come.

          Gun grabbers will never quit.

          We must continue, till the day we die, stay vigilant and fight.

        2. avatar Pat says:

          14′ midterms will tell the tale.

      2. avatar Totenglocke says:

        We stop the legislation at the Federal level, then take it to the courts at the State level.

    1. avatar Sammy says:

      Why are you offering her a treat?

  3. avatar MothaLova says:

    Shouldn’t have gotten even 40 – sign of the times that so many are willing to ban guns against all facts and reason – but I’m glad the amendment failed as decisively as it did.

    1. avatar Sixpack70 says:

      This is what is scary, 40 Senators voted to toss the 2A in the trash today. I guess they didn’t understand Heller, and certainly don’t understand that the constitution does not need interpreted. It’s pretty clear.

      1. avatar Jay Dunn says:

        They understand all that just fine–they just don’t give a damn.

  4. avatar J in Ga says:

    Hahahh, win! She looks like the freakshow from The Ring (moreso than usual). Awesome pic.

  5. avatar William says:

    HEY! If you had a face like that, you’d cover it, too…

  6. avatar t z says:

    My feelings are at the opposite end of the spectrum compared to how I felt watching the live stream of the ny safe act passing. Unfortunately I still live in ny. I’m really pushing myself to leave and never look back. But it’s hard to leave the place you grew up at.

    1. avatar Ryan H says:

      Don’t be too scared, I left the beloved place I grew up in CA. I live in Texas now (3)years andI am never going back. IT is hard at first, then it gets much easier and ultimately I am now happier than ever.

      1. avatar xx says:

        I agree… take the step and move. I was from california as well, now in oklahoma. Love it here now. I’ve lived in many states including massachusetts(ten years), and texas. I love living in oklahoma and texas the most.

    2. avatar GC says:

      Same for me and Kommiefornia. I feel your pain.

    3. avatar Joseph says:

      Immigrate to the free states of America. We welcome you in Georgia 🙂

    4. avatar Arthur says:

      I left NJ for Texas 10 years ago. I go back and visit but I can’t stay there long.

  7. They kept stating “we/they deserve a vote”. Well, they got their vote and lost. Can we now move on to more pressing issues like the economy and jobs – you know, stuff most people care about.

    1. avatar JPD says:

      Short answer is no. And please, they have screwed us bad enough with the economy, bailouts of billionaires, major corporations that pay NO taxes and the 24/7 effort to send ALL our jobs to China.

      So, yeah, how about hands off. Everything they touch turns to sh$t.

  8. avatar John says:

    Good and We Will Continue this Fight!! Dianne Feinstein So what Part Of ‘Shall Not Be Infringed’ do you not understand !! You Are Defeated !!

  9. avatar MotoJB says:

    The only way this news could get any better…is if a grand piano fell out of the sky and flattened her ugly a$$.

    1. avatar gloomhound says:

      Could happen, after all someone did drop a house on her sister.

      1. avatar MotoJB says:

        LOL…very true, very true.

      2. avatar Rambeast says:

        Just throw some water on her…

  10. avatar Lemming says:

    Can we borrow the “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” thing?

    1. avatar Human Being says:

      No. Don’t legitimize the slurring of a Great Lady and the conscious self-ruin of a once-great nation.

      I cant see the word BITCH because of all those * symbols.

  15. avatar Pulatso says:

    Her and Bloomberg can throw a huge pity party. And the rest of us can breathe a tiny sigh of relief, as we maintain vigilance. Also, it was 5:56 when I read this!

  16. avatar Gregolas says:

    From her expression, I’d say she either lost the vote or one of her flying monkeys died!

    1. avatar Pat says:

      One of the flying monkeys landed on her face before that picture was taken while another flew up her ass and died years ago.

  17. avatar Aharon says:

    This picture is hysterical. I laugh every time I see it. DiFi has one of the lowest achievement rates of any Senator in getting bills passed that she sponsored. The amount of media attention she has received over the years is way overdone. She is just an old elitist wind bag from the surreal unreal city of San Francisco.

  18. avatar Paul53 says:

    House in place? Cue the little people! Ding dong the witch is dead, which old witch, the wicked witch! (forgive me, I grew up in Salem Village Mass.).

    She’s going to be really mad when she hears about the 600 round Glock magazine.


    …and yes I know….

  20. avatar Gyufygy says:

    TV News just reported that CCW Reciprocity got more votes than M-T or even the AWB. Obviously didn’t pass, but it’s a nice tidbit.

  21. avatar KnowWhatIamTalkingAbout says:

    Can we spam her e-mail and the e-mails of all of her staff with pictures of citizens holding and shooting AR15 Rifles?

  22. avatar mpow66m says:

    Great day!
    now BHO will start parading around the survivors of the Boston Bombing like a pimp trying for restrictions on reloading equiptment.

  23. avatar TRP says:

    Yeah, and now her and the rest of the gun grabbers in the CA. Senate are taking their vengeance out on the poor suckers like me that reside in California. Yesterday the CA Senate pass a slew of totally unconstitutional bills to restrict gun ownership and tax ever ammunition component.

    1. avatar Pantera Vazquez says:

      so you guys get a tax plus a tax on a tax? You have the federal 11% excise tax on ammo, plus I guess a sales tax, which most states have, now you get-what another nickel per round was what they had proposed? Add to that the current prices on ammo.Damn, I truly empathize witcha…

      1. avatar JoshuaS says:

        The bills haven’t passed the Senate. They passed out of committee. Brown could veto some, but he might like new taxes because, hey fiscal problems.

  24. avatar tdiinva says:

    I had written some long and boring post but I will keep it simple: I told you so.

  25. avatar Bob in Boston says:

    Now Obama is playing the “90% of people wanted background checks – who are you representing?!?” card.
    They are representing the people, you idiot! That 90% number was laughable!

    1. avatar Silver says:

      Simple answer: the Constitution.

      The number of people who want some moronic bill don’t matter, even if the number was true. Further proof O either has no clue how this country’s values work, or simply doesn’t care.

    2. avatar Ralph says:

      You can’t get 90% of the people to agree that the world is round.

  26. avatar SD3 says:

    Bwwwwaaa! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

  27. avatar SGC says:


    A heavy opening salvo, but we’ve won the big battle…now we have to press the attack and mop up the resistance. Keep up the good fight!~ Keep the pressure on them. 2a forever!

    1. avatar Paul53 says:

      Thanks. I’m kinda proud of that one. Glad you enjoyed it.

      NEVER FORGET! The power belongs to the people, not the government. When the government gets it backwards, remember the brilliantly written Declaration of Independence!

  28. avatar JAS says:

    We have to go on the offensive and spank them while they are down! Now is the moment to communicate with the legislators and the general public what it is that we want and why it all makes a ton of sense. Start by cleaning up Chicago.

  29. avatar parthenon says:

    Ah, The face of a woman who has failed and knows this is the last and best chance she will have.

  30. avatar My Name Is Bob says:

    In your face Feinstein! You soul-sucking wench!!!!

  31. avatar WLCE says:

    Lets go on the offensive!

    1.) National CCW reciprocity
    2.) Castration of regulations on SBRs, SBS’s, Suppressors, and Title II weapons.
    3.) a voluntary, free-access to NCIS
    4.) Rescinding of “gun free zones”

    You called down the thunder motherf^ckers, well now you’ve got it

  32. avatar CCW Guy says:

    to re-establish a federal ban on certain assault weapons was defeated by a vote of 40-60. A near-united Republican conference voted against the measure, with just one GOP senator, Mark Kirk (Ill.), voting in its favor.
    Fifteen Democrats voted no on an assault weapons ban: Sens. Max Baucus (Mont.), Mark Begich (Alaska), Michael Bennet (Colo.), Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Kay Hagan (N.C.), Martin Heinrich (N.M.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Tim Johnson (S.D.), Mary Landrieu (La.), Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Mark Pryor (Ark.), Jon Tester (Mont.), Mark Udall (Colo.), Tom Udall (N.M.), and Mark Warner (Va.). Sen. Angus King (Maine), an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, also voted against the ban.

    I am gonna print that picture…………..guesses as to what for?………..

    1. avatar Bob Wall says:

      PV – Don’t forget to put “For Amusement Purposes Only,” to keep some left-winger thinking you’re part of some nefarious conspiracy. And “Amusement” would be true now, wouldn’t it? 😉

  34. avatar CCW Guy says:

    A separate amendment introduced by Sens. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) to limit the size of magazines to 10 rounds failed with a vote of 46-54. Kirk was again the only Republican to vote for the measure.
    Among the Democrat senators who opposed an assault weapons ban, five showed support for a ban on high-capacity magazines: Bennet, Heinrich, Johnson, Mark Udall and Tom Udall. So did King. Ten voted against it: Baucus, Begich, Donnelly, Hagan, Heitkamp, Landrieu, Manchin, Pryor, Tester and Warner.

  35. avatar Chas says:

    Go slither back into your hole, Dianne, and don’t come out again until you’re voted out in 2014.

  36. avatar Black belt says:

    Better luck next time Senator Palpatine!

  37. avatar Mediocrates says:

    Yeah! Gonna buy me one ASAP…

  38. avatar Randy Drescher says:

    Think of the sorrow over at the million mom march, all 2 of em. As for feinswine…you got your vote you ugly old hag, Randy

  39. avatar Lance says:

    Praise God and Jesus for giving us this victory today!. We won for today and I think this year. It looked bad but we called and rallied and won praise the LORD!!!!

    We must relish this tonight and get ready to take the Senate back to progun leadership in 2014. And Maintain a progun majority in the House!

    And now can we get some AR lowers now????

    1. avatar Sixpack70 says:

      I have two empty lowers right now. How about the components to fill those lowers and also a few uppers?

      1. avatar Jim Scrummy says:

        Agree. I guess patience is SOP. I keep telling myself inventory will get better.

  40. avatar Travis says:

    can we please vote this idiot of office?

  41. avatar mike says:

    Yesterdays CA bills passed committee, voting to come.

    Quick breakdown of one portion:
    Opposition: you wrote sb567 in such a way that it doesn’t ban the gun you want to ban. Also, you’ll accidentally ban handguns with this bill.
    Sen. Jackson: I had no idea, I’ll look into rewriting it.
    Committee vote: 5-2 passes committee.

  42. avatar Paul53 says:

    We fought a revolution to prove that the power rests with the people, and they can allow government to use it for the common good. Career politicians seem to get it backwards, thinking they have the power over the people. When they do, this is what happens. Hope DiFi learned the lesson.

  43. avatar bedbugeddy says:

    I hope she is so distraught she has a massive heart attack, on TV so I can watch it back in slow motion over and over

  44. avatar Triggernoob says:

    I’m glad and relieved it failed. Hopefully this stand-in for Predator is going to be disappointed that the shoulder thing that goes up has no bearing on how deadly a gun is. Guns are Guns and Guns are Fun!

  45. avatar Ron Jones says:

    Well some good news for a change. I am glad she lost. Most people don’t agree with her crap anyhow. +1 for 2A

  46. avatar David says:

    Great facepalm with a double check peek to see if what she saw really happened!

  47. avatar joe says:

    Hey Feinstein-FOAD you old hag

    Poor crypt keeper didn’t get to rid the country of all the evil death machines…so sad.
