Feinstein: All Vets Are Mentally Ill And Government Should Prevent Them From Owning Firearms
http://govtslaves.com ^ | March 8, 2013

Posted on 04/05/2013 6:51:58 PM PDT by NKP_Vet

During the Senate Judiciary meeting today to markup a potpourri of bills designed to deny the American people their rights under the Second Amendment and disarm them, Senator Dianne Feinstein opposed an amendment to her so-called assault weapons ban legislation that would allow veterans to continue buying firearms the bill would outlaw.

Feinstein basically said all veterans have PTSD and should have their Second Amendment stripped. In response to the amendment, she said the following:

…this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was effect… and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States… that included active military. The problem with expanding this is that you know with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this. So you know I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to — if you’re going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon.

No, you stupid bitch PTSD didn't start with Iraq. And just because a veteran is suffering from a disorder that he acquired keeping your sorry ass safe and sound, he damn sure will not give up his right to protect himself and his family from harm. So her bill would exempt police and retired police officers, but not exempt veterans that have served their country??????

What we are in fact seeing from socialists in the west is a claim that all non-socialists/non-islamics are mentally ill and must have their weapons taken away.

This will not end well.

What a wacked out leftist woman (hag.. sorry). They just won't stop. The lust of power has overturned any balance of practically that she could ever show now. Unreal to see this lust of control over the people.
They despise the Founding Fathers. (You can see that in their writings/comments)

Of course she is. All progressive politicians are insane and should not only have their 2nd amendment rights removed, they should have their 1st amendment rights removed, as well. They should not be allowed to hire body guards, and they should not be allowed to drive cars.

There. That's my 2 cents, finestine. Don't answer me. I just removed your right to free speech because you are a lunatic.

And so goes a “reasonable restriction”: nobody opposes prohibiting the mentally ill from owning guns...and then “mentally ill” is later redefined to include holding certain political views. Camel, nose, tent.

“Feinstein’s remark, however, reveals a deep-seated mistrust and contempt for America’s veterans. It also reveals the fear by government of the revolutionary potential of veterans, a fear dutifully expressed by the Department of Homeland Security when it said returning veterans are “right wing extremists” who may challenge the government”.

Liberals are scared of guns and don’t own them because most liberals are whacked out on drugs 99% of the time. They are scared they might kill themselves.

I will repeat this ad nauseam until it happens:

Where is the outrage from our military and those supporting them, as tomorrow’s vets are TODAY’S fighting men & women???

This smearing of VETERANS is a direct attack on the military yet NO NEWS organization will call them on it.

I don’t get it.

You are correct. PTSD has an ancient past although a short history. Even Native American tribes had purification rituals for their warriors to purge the effects of lethal violence from their hearts.

If you’ve ever consulted with a psychologist or psychiatrist it will be disclosed in the proposed expanded background checks for gun permits and I predict may be used to deny same.

When Harvey Milk was murdered along with the Mayor of San Francisco, the first thing Feinstein did was take to the airwaves to and blame the murder on stress from the gunman’s service as a Marine in Vietnam. Her performance before the cameras effectively turbo-boosted her political career to replace the mayor and later become a US Senator. This is no new phenomenon to her....

Feinstein was in City Hall when San Francisco mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated by a rival politician, and some say this experience left her with PTSD.

Absolute B/S.... another damn LIE.

PTSD has been around forever. During previous wars it was called “shell-shock”.

Having PTSD does not mean that you are crazy or necessarily a danger to yourself or others.

This is on the same level as Minneapolis libs saying that anyone with a military background should not be allowed to participate in the political process.

This line was from the Colleen Rowley campaign against Congressman John Kline (R-MN) (the campaign that photoshopped a picture of the congressman cahnging his Marine dress blues to a Nazi SS uniform).

Mentally ill? Hello kettle! Of course you would have to have some mental capacity to be mentally ill so I guess you could give her a pass in that case. Nah! No pass. You are of course correct. It used to be called shell shock. Nothing new here. Some cope better than others. Some can’t cope at all. Supposing it’s because there is NO normal. Everybody is different without categorization. People is people. How dull life would be (will be) once they get us in line. LOL! (No, not maniacal laughter either!)
