Dianne Feinstein: ‘It’s legal to hunt humans’ with high-capacity magazines [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | March 8, 2013 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 03/09/2013 2:44:23 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

At a Senate judiciary committee hearing on Thursday, California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein shot down a proposed amendment exempting veterans from her “assault weapons” ban, bizarrely arguing that it’s legal to hunt humans with high-capacity magazines.

“The time has come, America, to step up and ban these weapons,” Feinstein said. “The other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices — those that hold more than 10 rounds. We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines. Limiting magazine capacity is critical, because it is when a criminal, a drug dealer, a deranged individual has to pause to change magazines and reload that, the police or brave bystanders have the opportunity to take that individual down.”

Feinstein also said the prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder in some military veterans is a concern....

And what’s worse is that most of her ‘colleagues’ just nod their heads and keep on doing what they are doing. In a nutshell; The fix is in and we are screwed.

I never hunted humans. Do you need a permit for that? Is it only legal in Kalifornia?

Did Ms. Feinstein hunt humans when she had her own gun?

This woman is insane you know. Not any more insane than other Kailfornia political creatures, but definitely batshyt crazy.

Really? Can I get me a Senator hunting stamp here?

What a demented nut.

1) The capacity limit for hunting argument would only work if game animals SHOT BACK, or if you’re talking to brain dead leftwingers.

2) High capacity magazine are not critical to armed criminal perpetrators, since they are the initiators of the shooting (i.e. they pick the time and place) they can prepare with extra magazines at the ready for split second reloading. It is for the law abiding citizen, suddenly confronted by armed (and prepared) criminal perpetrators, that a weapon loaded with a “large” capacity magazine is “critical” - since only he/she could be the one unprepared with extra magazines at the ready for split second reloading. (One of the Columbine shooter used thirteen 10-round magazines to fire 96 shots.)

Actually, last time I checked, if you wanted to take your semi-automatic AK variant deer hunting in ND with a 30 round magazine, it was no biggie.

I haven't checked recently, but that was perfectly legal a few years back when I checked with Fish and Game, here.

(Be prepared to have your shirttail cut off if you need more than one or two of those rounds, though...)

We should just call her “Senator Dianne.” I have a feeling it will upset her and her commie pals.

A good response to her at that hearing would have been “Had I known it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines, you have been gone a long tome ago. I would have used the 15 round since anything less is apparently not legal and come back with 14 rounds.”

We have a government that is reluctant to say it is unconstitutional to hunt its citizens with armed predator drones but sees a problem with law abiding citizens owning a gun that looks like military weapon or can fire more than a handful of bullets without reloading. How did we come to be ruled by these tyrants?

I actually see what she's getting at -- you have to think like a liberal which, for me, is somewhat difficult...

She's saying that we limit duck hunting to 3 rounds, but BECAUSE THERE ARE 50 AND 100 ROUND MAGAZINES, THAT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO KILL OTHER PEOPLE WITH THAT MUCH FIREPOWER -- or something like that.

These people hate firearms, everything connected with him and want them GONE.

I disagree. They like guns just fine. They just want themselves and their jackbooted minions on the right side of those guns, and you and me on the wrong side.

They stopped being "liberals" sometime back. They're learning how to be socialist tyrants now.

“We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.”

Umm, should I bother to point out the obvious? The obvious is that ducks can’t shoot back nor do ducks rob or rape anyone. But, this may be beyond Feinstein’s grasp.....

What law allow this? “...And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round...”

They say stuff hoping no one will catch it...their elite little minds think we are all stupid...FUBAR!

I’m astounded that we are at this point in our national history...if things don’t change - we are all (f*****)!

Step by step.
City council member.
Mayor
Senate

I was stationed at Moffett Field in the early 80's when she was San Fran Mayor and was doing her best to close shooting ranges and tried to get a handgun ban through.
We were living in Sunnyvale at the time so it wouldn't have affected us, but it was interesting nonetheless. IIRC she failed then, too.

There are ways to hunt bureaucrats and politicians that don’t involve firearms but will still bring their liberty-destroying plans to a halt. Many of them are peaceful. A Constitutional Convention is one.

I thought that the idea of a large capacity magazine was to prevent you from becoming prey to a pack.

I watch the occasional hunting and/or firearms program. They’ve had a lot of experts on but so far none of them have been 79 year old Jewish females.

She is right. For most of us part of hunting is making it a challenge. I don’t even have a magazine in my deer rifle, it’s a muzzle loader. Defending myself and my family is not sport and I have stacked the deck in my favor as well as possible with that weapon.

Legal to hunt humans? I don’t think she is the only one that believes this; many who are pushing for new gun laws act as though criminal shooters would follow new laws, problem solved. The gun grabbers act as if there are not already many laws that cover a situation where someone goes on a shooting spree.

I have said the problem we need to solve is one of mental illness; not only with the criminal shooters, but many politicians and supporters of gun grabbing are showing definite signs that mental illness is the issue with them as well.

*** “The other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices..***

Henry rifle (1860) 16 shots. No complaints.

Evans rifle (1873) 34 rounds. No complaints.

AR-15, (1963) Over 10 rounds. The sky is falling and we all gonna die!

In 1902, Harry Tracy broke out of prison and armed with a 30-30 rifle and Colt .45 handgun killed eleven people before he killed himself.

No one complained about being outgunned or called for bans on them.

The Islamics just today said we could eat them.
As long as they were Apostate or not someone elses slave.

Feinstein uses the fact that most hinting is limited to 3 rounds inthe shotgun, but if we need something for self-defense 3 rounds is not enough.

Ms. Feinstein forgets or rather she does not know, that ducks seldom attack humans and there is no record of a duck ever shooting back.

Perhaps it’s time to hunt politicians bought and paid for by Chicom money (like Sen. DiFi) with high capacity magazines. I hear it’s a target rich environment in DC and there’s an unlimited bag limit.
