Watch Senator Dianne Feinstein make Senator Ted Cruz look like a horse’s ass. As if he needs any help.
One, I’m not a sixth grader. Senator, I’ve been on this committee for 20 years. I was a mayor for nine years. I walked in, I saw people shot. I’ve looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. I’ve seen the bullets that implode. In Sandy Hook, youngsters were dismembered.
It’s fine you want to lecture me on the Constitution. I appreciate it. Just know I’ve been here for a long time. I’ve passed on a number of bills. I’ve studied the Constitution myself. I am reasonably well educated, and I thank you for the lecture.
Incidentally, this does not prohibit — you use the word prohibit — it exempts 2271 weapons. Isn’t that enough for the people in the United States? Do they need a bazooka?
Feinstein asks the pertinent question — do the American people need bazookas? It’s a rhetorical but important question to ask because it demonstrates the weakness of the argument that the government cannot place restrictions on certain types of weapons. Because if that were the case, nothing could prevent you from owning an RPG.
The ban on assault weapons cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee today and will appear before the full Senate.
