Skip to comments.Feinstein: All Vets Are Mentally Ill And Government Should Prevent Them From Owning Firearms
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, its 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 youre going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally dont have access to this kind of weapon.

with the advent of PTSD, uhh, which i think is a new phenomenon as a product of the iraq war, umm,
Hey wait a minute biatch! They didn’t have PTSD when I was in. You and the ass you rode in on can KMA!
This is not going to end well... maybe she’s just trying to motivate us?
I see where my original post was posted about a month ago. Sorry for the repost. But it needs to be read again. This woman is a raving lunatic.
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.
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.
She must be jealous of Diane DeGette and is trying to take away
her crown as "Most Colossal Moron In The Known Universe."
Yeah. It was worth a double bump...
Liberals believe that simply wanting to own a firearm is grounds for denial.
That’s ok. I missed it the first time. All Americans should see it.
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.
Liberals should not only be prohibited from purchasing firearms, they should be prohibited from hiring armed guards.
I wish I was joking.
“Feinsteins remark, however, reveals a deep-seated mistrust and contempt for Americas 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”.
