Dem gun hypocrites

Liberal Sens. Feinstein, Schumer have both had concealed carry permits

As liberal Demcrats line up behind Obama’s intention to restrict gun ownership, it’s well to revisit the words of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who was outspoken in her defense of arming herself, declaring she obtained a concealed carry permit in California when she felt her life was threatened. In 1995, Feinstein described this experience:

 Fast forward to December 2012. Now Feinstein wants law abiding citizens of the United States to have their Second Amendment rights restricted.

After the deadly Aurora, Colorado theater shooting. Feinstein, speaking with FOX News’ Chris Wallace, was critical of those (video) who said responsible conceal carry permit holders could have stopped the killer. Feinstein declared, “…and maybe you could have had a firefight and killed many more people. These are people in a theater.”

Feinstein, author of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, is now leading the charge on Capitol Hill to reinstate the legislation that expired in 2004. “I’m going to introduce in the Senate and the same bill will be introduced in the House, a bill to ban assault weapons. It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession. Not retroactively but prospectively. And it will ban the same for big clips, drums or strips of more than 10 bullets. So there will be a bill,” she recently told (video) Gwen Ifill on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”

Feinstein is a strong proponent of gun control, yet is known to have carried concealed handguns herself, obtaining a nearly impossible to secure California carry permit, available to few people, other than high placed politicians and celebrities. At one time, she was the only person in San Francisco to possess a concealed carry permit.

New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer is also reported to possess a concealed handgun permit in his state. Both senators regularly employ armed guards for their personal protection. These politicians realize that being armed makes them safer, although that’s where their support for the right to keep and bear arms ends.

Among the Hollywood double talkers on the issue of gun ownership are these folks, all Democrat donors and gun owners: Robert DeNiro, James Earl Jones, Marc Anthony, Howard Stern, Whoopie Goldberg, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. They stand united to restrict your rights while exempting themselves. (Update: Newsmeat site listing celebrity donors and the amount of their donations has been taken down.)

 The Second Amendment is about much more than simply carrying concealed, hunting, or sport shooting. Our right to keep and bear arms is a bulwark against tyranny.

The U.S. Constitution and 44 States have Constitutional provisions* enumerating the Individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

    To these liberal elites, American taxpaying citizens are useful for one thing and one thing only. That is to be taxed at increasingly higher rates, at all levels (federal, state, city, sales taxes, and here in Phoenix even our food is taxed!) to pay for the increasing governmental overreaches they support.

    There is power in incumbency. These same usurpers of Constitutional authority keep getting reelected. We have no one to blame but ourselves. Now a senator, Libertarian Jeff the Flake, whose intent has always been to grant amnesty to all illegal comers, will be in DC until he is hauled out in a box as an octogenarian. He has partnered with far left liberal Luis Gutierrez in the House and now will ape his friend and mentor John McCain, the renown “aisle-crosser.”

      Good points about incumbency. It’s time to vote most of them out as they come up for reelection. Check their records to make sure you aren’t being hoodwinked with glib pre-election prattle. They all want to sound like conservatives UNTIL they have won. Then they stick it to us as McKyl have done for so many years and Flake will now do. Immediately after being reelected to SIX year senate terms, McCain and Kyl both went back on their word to the voters and worked on promoting amnesty, which they called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” John McCain has long been in favor of restricting our access to fireams (calls it “closing gun show loopholes”), yet the idiotic NRA continues to endorse him, as an incumbent.

      Wake up Arizona. We are being screwed without a kiss.

      The only way we’ll get term limits for members of Congress is with a constitutional convention called by the state legislatures. Can you imagine two thirds of each house of Congress voting to limit their own terms?

      If you are not open to having a constitutional convention, it is almost impossible to get term limits for US representatives and senators.

      I think there should be term limits, but I don’t see Congress proposing such an amendment or states voting for a constitutional convention.

    Good article. We simply have to start with term limits for all members of congress…the good and the bad need to go after a couple of terms. Until that happens you get the Diane’s and Chuck’s ascending to real positions of power.

    LaPierre’s interview on Meet the Press today just shows a lack of political awareness on his part. Every hunting shotgun has a limit on shells…there is no place for large clips and no place for Gun Shows to sell on terms different than a retail gun shop.

      You’re not fooling anyone, Pinko. We have your number. Do you think that you’re the first Pinko to post at a Conservative blog, LOL! We know the drill!

      First, agree with something to make it appear that you are Conservative. Then get down to the Pinko propaganda.

      Pinko wrote: “Every hunting shotgun has a limit on shells…” So what, Pinko? I own a shotgun. It’s strictly for self-defense, not hunting. It will take seven in the tube and one in the chamber for a total of eight shells. Nice, huh!

      Pinko wrote: “…there is no place for large clips…” Sure there is, Pinko; one in the weapon and a couple of more ready to be slapped in.

      Pinko wrote: “…no place for Gun Shows to sell on terms different than a retail gun shop.” That’s Capitalism, Pinko, something which you lefties abhor. Suck it up or move to China!

      Have a nice day, Pinko! :-)

        Little Euby is very quick to slander other posters with whom it doesn’t agree or perhaps can’t keep up with. All this does is reelect Obama, allow an increased budget by local, state, and federal governments, and insure that the Republicans become a nothing party.

      • eubykdisop says:

        As usual, “Westnash Pinko”, you’re wrong.

        First of all, it can’t be slander because it’s the truth that you are a Pinko.

        Secondly, your attempted deception is old hat. Countless times we have seen undercover Pinkos like you telling us that following Conservative principles will get Democrats elected.

        Now run along and do your volunteer work for Raul Grijalva.

      • Maggie says:

        Go get ’em, euby!
        …and a Merry Christmas to you!

      • eubykdisop says:

        Thanks, Maggie! :-)

        …and a blessed Christmas and joyous New Year to you, Maggie!

    Keep going to the movies. Your ticket purchases fund the Hollywood liberals who donate to left wing candidates and their causes. Is being entertained so precious to you that you are willing to undermine your own vote? Think about it.

  5. Westnash says:

    It seems easier for Euby to slander other posters than to come up with an original thought.

    • eubykdisop says:

      Hey, thanks a lot for the very enlightening information. It’s thoughtful comments like that which help to make this blog great.

      • Westnash says:

        Some good points on this thread….unfortunately Euby didn’t provide any of them.

        As mentioned, any hunting shotgun has a limit on shells, imposed by the government. Doesn’t make it wrong. Large clips and the Gun Show exemptions should go. Gun Show owners have become rich, just like Fiesta Bowl promoter’s! Illegals love gun shows!

      • Doc says:

        Westnash-Can’t you please just go somewhere else? Intelligent opposing points of view are great…but you’re just annoying @ this point…just sayin’…

  6. Westnash says:

    Sorry, it’s not about following the crowd, is it? Rather than going through total whippings at every contested election, shouldn’t Republicans develop a way to win? Sounds like Vietnam to me.
