Feinstein: All vets are mentally ill and government should prevent them from owning firearms

Inforwars – by Kurt Nimmo, March 7, 2013

During the Senate Judiciary meeting today to markup a potpourri of bills designed to deny the American people their rights under the Second Amendment and disarm them, Senator Dianne Feinstein opposed an amendment to her so-called assault weapons ban legislation that would allow veterans to continue buying firearms the bill would outlaw.

Feinstein basically said all veterans have PTSD and should have their Second Amendment stripped. In response to the amendment, she said the following:

…this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was effect… and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States… that included active military. 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 transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this. So you know I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but 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.

The comments are included in the C-Span video below.

Thankfully, Feinstein’s bill will most certainly be dead on arrival and – for now – the American people (with the exception of Americans unfortunate enough to live in New York state) will have their Second Amendment rights spared.

Feinstein’s remark, however, reveals a deep-seated mistrust and contempt for America’s veterans. It also reveals the fear by government of the revolutionary potential of veterans, a fear dutifully expressed by the Department of Homeland Security when it said returning veterans are “right wing extremists” who may challenge the government.

Incidentally, Feinstein is way off the mark. Although PTSD is a relatively new definition, soldiers returning from combat have experienced anxiety disorders since time immemorial. It is nothing new. She is merely exploiting a modern psychology term in order to add substance to her argument that veterans are insane and as such must have their Second Amendment rights nullified.

  1. I’m thinking that all these new gun law proposals, some of which are so ridiculous that they can never be passed or enforced, are only a distraction from the planned confiscation.

    When the propagandists propose, or debate laws, people are left with the impression that any action on them is months away, and that allows them to ignore the situation, and relax. While they’re debating the legality or constitutionality for the television cameras, the thugs will be kicking your door off its hinges, so DON’T relax thinking it’s many months away.

    Ignore the debates over second amendment violations, and be ready for the real violation to occur.

  2. Feinstein realizes what the rest of us already know. As more and more Vets realize they served, and in many cases gave their lives for Israel and international jewish bankers, the outcome can’t be good for the sayanim and other enemy alien fifth columnists who pledge allegiance to Israel.

    It’s been no secret for some time that nearly every modern American President has been a complete fraud, going back at least to Reagan. Something is going to happen and for the better.

  3. Feinstein should be arrested for practicing medicine with out a license.
    She has made a diagnosis without a degree.

  4. Feinstein really needs to be sent to the looney bin and fast. She needs to be locked up in a room with a stray jacket and a muzzle over her mouth, so she won’t hurt anyone else, because there is not enough medicine in the world that can save that woman from her delusional world.

    1. I missed it before today but learning about the billionaire husband tells you her senate seat was signed, sealed, and delivered by her husband. So, she is just the “mouthpiece” for her husband.
