At a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting on Thursday, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) opposed an amendment to her Assault Weapons Ban legislation that would allow military veterans to continue to buy the firearms that would be banned. Feinstein says a veteran may be mentally ill and should be prevented from purchasing firearms.

“Feinstein says a veteran may be mentally ill and should be prevented from purchasing firearms”

I’m almost positive that there are great numbers of Congress who are mentally ill. Perhaps it is those who should be prevented from buying firearms.

What about the police? Many many police officers are now claiming disability from PTSD. Also I have read that cops suffer greater rates of suicide, domestic violence, alcoholism and other disorders than the general population.

The United States has a seriously large number of very highly trained and capable combat vets with extensive combat experience. This scares the heck out of our politicians, especially those politicians who anticipate being in control of the new Civilian Security that is better armed than the US military.

The Democrats are really more concerned with keeping weapons out of the hands of experienced combat vets using the pretext of PTSD and giving themselves the legal grounds to seize weapons from vets and perhaps even institutionalize them if there should be civil strife in order to keep vets from organizing effective countermeasures to any of the kinds of situations we may face if things get seriously sideway in the economy.

Not a problem for them. They have armed security. At our expense.

Feinswein is definitely deranged, though. She is obsessed. Like a mosquito, she thrives on blood.

..PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War,...

Apparently the Honourable Moroness from California has never heard of "shell shock", a known issue from a century ago.

I agree, but unfortunately she's one of the Senatorial "Sainted Ones," who will never be defeated.

During the reign of terror in USSR, when the nomenklatura sent the Chekists from the NKVD to arrest, torture and murder the kulaks, they never had to worry about retaliation or their own safety because there was no effective resistance.

Our Democrat Politicians are getting very nervous about guns being in the hands of ex combat vets who really know how to use them effectively

Kind of makes you wonder.

I wrote to her and pointed that out and said if she was being intellectually honest with her argument she would recognize that cops suffer from PTSD too....but I digress...

Arguements like Fiendstains’ could be made for any group.

Would she say in San Francisco that gays may have aids and thus prone to suicide?

Re: 8

That is probably a correct assessment. Mrs. Feinstein is referencing a Battle of Athens scenario where returned WWII veterans helped overthrow some crooked politicians in Tennessee.
I have no doubt that the level of crookedness that exists in our politician class today, exceeds that which existed in Athens in 1946.

Did that dumb@$$, Fineswine, actually say, "...no issue has arose..."?

If so, she just flunked her Ebonics course. It should be, "...no issue is arose..."

I agree with you completely. The bastards won't be able to do much about their knowledge and leadership though.

The crazy B probably also thinks that vets should not be allowed to vote because they are mostly Republicans.

What an idiot she is. I truly feel sorry for the Conservaties who are still living in CA.

The so-called “mentally ill” should not be barred from owning firearms.

PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War,

That may well be the dumbest statement ever rttered by a member of the Senate.

The military veterans will be the first group our government attacks vis a vis their Second Amendment rights.

There are two reasons for this: they fear veterans patriotism but also their firearms proficiency.

The PTDS angle is a major strategy of the Democrats. Chuckie Schumer has already steamrolled legislation through Congress that strips Veterans with PTSD who were foolish enough to appoint a VA or outside financial overseer for their affairs. Next will be any Veteran who has PTDS, and then ultimately any Veteran for any excuse they can come up with.

Once this strategy is successful, they will use the guise of "mental health" to strip the public of their gun rights.

This is a classic Soviet psychiatry style attack that proved so successful in attacking the dignity and freedom of millions of human beings. Now, our own Government is adopting it.

If you think you are "safe", think again. The "mental health" profession is full of quackery, Witch doctors, and junk science. They do not know what they are doing - it is a vague "science" at best. The vagaries of the blind leading the blind is their best weapon. They can classify, reclassify, or invent any "diagnosis" or "condition" they want.

If you have ever had an argument with your spouse, you will have an "issue" that they can use to take your weapons and rights away from you. If you have ever sought counseling for anything, ever been prescribed anything for sleep or depression, ever been to an AA meeting, ever been counseled at work by an irate boss - anything they want to attack you with, they will.
