Feinstein: Veterans All Have PTSD And Are Crazy, so Shouldn’t Own Modern Rifles

The Judiciary Committee is meeting today to mark-up the various civilian disarmament bills before the Senate. One of the bills in the frame: Senator Feinstein’s ”Assault Weapons Ban.” Readers watching the proceedings online tell TTAG that a proposed amendment would allow veterans to keep buying their “assault weapons” just like retired cops. Senator Feinstein opposed the amendment on the basis that veterans have PTSD and can’t be trusted with guns. Here’s her exact words:

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 TRANSFER OF A FIREARM COVERED BY THIS BILL WOULD VERIFY THAT AN INDIVIDUAL WAS A MEMBER OR VETERAN AND THERE WAS NO IMPAIRMENT OF THAT INDIVIDUAL WITH RESPECT TO HAVING A WEAPON LIKE THIS.

[...]

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.

These are the same veterans we hand fully automatic machine guns to on a regular basis and send into battle. Feinstein considers them too crazy to own an AR-style rifle back home in the United States. Imagine that.
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. - Patrick Henry

The contempt this woman has for the Second Amendment and veterans knows no bounds. This woman needs to thrown out of office immediately for treason. She can't only support the parts of the Constitution she agrees with.

I'll bet she's using Chris Kyle's assassination as proof that veterans are a danger to society....

I honestly cannot wrap my head around these people's line of thinking. I'd like to think I'm the type of person that openly listens to all sides of a discussion before "taking sides". I absolutely cannot understand how people such as Feinstein can go to sleep at night with a clean conscious. The blantant ignorance and flat out insulting things they say to people that if we're to be even uttered by anyone else would get them buried.

And furthermore what is it gonna take for the people defending this person first amendment right, to say enough is enough?

I'm happy to see the 2A is being honored across the board.Angry

Feinstein is delusional & senile.
How many doddering old fools have we seen entrench their lazy fat asses until they drop dead?

It sickening to watch these lifer politicians scowl at the citizenry with increasing disdain the older they get.
