MILLER: Smoking gun exposed- D.C. police covers up giving Feinstein illegal ‘assault weapons’
washingtontimes.com ^ | Oct 9,2013 | Emily Miller

Washington Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier seems to think that gun-control laws don’t apply to the liberal elite. The police chief helped Sen. Dianne Feinstein acquire “assault weapons,” which are illegal to possess in the District, for a news conference early this year to promote a ban on these firearms, then tried to cover up the police involvement. Now, a response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request reveals Chief Lanier’s shocking willingness to bend the rules for partisan and ideological purposes.

Lobbyist Chuck DeWitt emailed Chief Lanier on Christmas Eve last year. “Sen. Feinstein has asked us to bring examples of assault weapons used in the worst incidents over the past few years.” The CEO of the Lafayette Group told the chief that the guns would be put on display at a media event and asked, “Could you put me in touch with your person who would have any of these weapons?” Chief Lanier’s response was not turned over. However, a week after Mr. DeWitt’s request, Mrs. Feinstein’s press secretary, Tom Mentzer, asked the commander of the police department’s Crime Scene Investigation Division, Keith Williams, for 10 specific firearm models used in high-profile mass shootings, including a Bushmaster XM-15, Tec-9 handgun, Smith & Wesson M&P15 and a Glock 19 with a “high-capacity magazine.”

These are, of course, classical examples of a tyrannical government exercising its power over its subjects. No different than Stalin,Hitler, Mao, Fidel or any of the countless number of "Rulers by Divine Right" that preceded our founding fathers enlightened experiment.

The law only applies to the little people, and conservatives, not the enlightened washington elite. Nothing to see here serf, move along and do what you’re told, if you know what’s good for you.

Thanks to Ms. Miller for reconfirming what we already know/knew. Elistists are exempt from laws that only apply to peons. Where is the “just-us”? Same for dave gregory. Asshats.

“DiFi should have her face in the dictionary under Elitist hypocrite, ya think?”

Ya, agree. In fact, DiFi had a CHL for several years and did in fact carry, a 38spl I believe, until she was outed. Then, she(supposedly)relinquished it and ceased packing. Perhaps..... :)

Why does Reinhart Heydrich come to mind

Much as I despise Feinstein, if the guns were brought to the location by police, and police supervised the presence of the guns and took them away afterward, then I doubt any actual laws were broken.

I can tell you that if a Congress critter asks for something in DC they are going to get it,.

DC gets a large federal payment each year and they like to keep the Congress happy.

The close you look the more it's like taking the cover off a septic tank.

According the the article no laws were broken as the DC and Philly police coordinated the propaganda efforts. The real meat of the article is that the DC police are corrupt, partisan politcal hacks who bent over backwards for DiFi but wouldn’t let Cruz bring in any weapons (even ones legal in DC) for the response.

So DiFi and David Gregory can possess whatever they want in violation of the law, but the average citizen would get 30 years.

This is how banana republics work!

Exactly.

You are exactly right.

Starting with the Mayor, The Police Chief, the Fire Chief, and going down from there.

DC Government is an open sewer.

And let’s not leave out the little clipped hair dyke who runs the Park Police. She and Lanier are probably “girlfriends.”

No she isn't. She is and always has been an authoritarian leftist cast from the mold of Hitler himself.

That's not liberal, and I really wish the word was not so misused.
