Feinstein Flashback: ‘I Understand the Urge to Arm Yourself… That’s What I Did’

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- In 1995, Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) went on the record about the fact that she had a concealed carry permit and carried a concealed handgun when she walked back and forth to the hospital to see her ailing husband.

She was also dealing with threats from a terror group, the World Liberation Front. The group had tried to bomb her house on one occasion and had shot out her windows on another.

Reflecting on those moments, Feinstein said:

I know the sense of helplessness that people feel, I know the urge to arm yourself, because that’s what I did. I was trained in firearms. I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick, I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if someone was going to try to take me out, I was going to take them with me.

Shame on Sen. Feinstein: even though she admits to knowing how it feels to know your life is in your own hands, even though she testified to the security she derived from having a gun on her person in those dark moments, Dianne Feinstein is now hell bent on banning every gun she can and to deny common citizens the same security she herself enjoyed.

This is elitism-gone-wild. And the message it communicates is that the lives of average Americans aren’t worthy of the security a gun affords.

    1. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET, WHEN YOU ELECT,THE SAME PEOPLE OVER ,AND OVER AGAIN SHE CARRY’S A GUN, WHY CAN’T I. SHE THINKS. CALIFORNIA, WAKE UP, AND THROW HER OUT OF CONGRESS. I HAVE SPOKEN.

    2. I would have liked to have heard her rationalization for her change of heart on the matter (if that’s what she was about to do at the end of the video). What could she have said, that she is now of the opinion that guns are too dangerous in the hands of citizens? If so, was one too dangerous in her hands? If that is what she was about to say, that would prove the assertion by some gun rights advocates that anti-gun people are “projecting”; they fear guns in the hands of others because they fear what they would do with a gun in their own hands.

    3. Not only does this show that it’s not the guns but the people behind them that are unbalanced; it also shows that we strongly need to put a short time limit on the terms in office for all members of our congress…as we do the President’s office.
