Cruz & Feinstein Have It Out As Assault Weapons Ban Bill Passes Committee

on September 28, 2010 in Washington, DC.Freedom Outpost – by Tim Brown

In a vote, 10-8, along party lines, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) ban on the sale and manufacture of more than 150 types of semi-automatic weapons on Thursday. However, the vote took place after the Cruz missile struck. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) lectured Feinstein on the United States Constitution. 

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) put forth four amendments which were beat back by the Democrats. Cornyn asked for exceptions for victims of domestic violence, military veterans and those living on Southwest Border States that he said were affected by Mexican gang violence.

Feinstein said that the amendments were “an effort to nip it and tuck it and create exceptions.”

Cornyn said that the bill will leave law abiding citizens with “peashooters” against criminals.

Senator Ted Cruz also lectured Feinstein as to the meaning of the Constitution and why the language was written in the way it was by the framers.

“I’m not a sixth-grader,” she told Cruz. “I’m not a lawyer, but after 20 years, I’ve been up close and personal to the Constitution. I have great respect for it. … 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.”

Cruz then asked if she thought she had power to interpret the First Amendment to decide what books people could read.

While she brought up the fact that child pornography was illegal, that didn’t answer the question, seeing as the First Amendment limits Congress in that aspect. However, States rightly determine that child pornography is illegal. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) brought up issues in Cruz’s home state over content in textbooks. However, again, that is a State’s rights issue, not a Federal issue.

These people may have been in Washington a long time and they may have “studied” the Constitution, but they don’t have a clue as to why it was written and how it actually was written to limit them, not expand their power.

The Associated Press reports,

The sponsor of an assault weapons ban is conceding that she’ll need lots of help from President Barack Obama and others for the proposal to have a chance of surviving in the Senate.

The Democratic-led Senate Judiciary Committee seemed certain to approve the measure Thursday, probably on a party-line vote. But once it reaches the full Senate _ probably in April _ the measure appears destined for defeat, thanks to opposition by Republicans and some moderate Democrats, as well.

“I’d like to see everybody doing more,” bill sponsor Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday when asked if she’d like more assistance from Obama. “Yes, absolutely, we need help. We have the 800-pound gorilla out there” _ a reference to the potent National Rifle Association.

The problem is that the weapons she says are so bad are not a major issue at all. The issue is this old woman has an agenda and it’s crystal clear; she wants a disarmed population.

Feinstein in commenting on the tough road ahead for her legislation said, “The road is uphill. I fully understand that.”

Count on it! The American people will oppose you and all your ilk who seek to restrict firearms and ammunition any more than you already have. The people in Washington who continue to push the American people more and more with your unlawful laws and attacks upon the Constitution are facing a sleeping giant. If they aren’t careful, they are going to wake it and when they do it will not be a pretty sight.

  1. Senator Ted Cruz also lectured Feinstein as to the meaning of the “Constitution and why the language was written in the way it was by the framers.

    “I’m not a sixth-grader,” she told Cruz. “I’m not a lawyer, but after 20 years, I’ve been up close and personal to the Constitution.

    Oh this BITCH seriously has got to go. The balls on her. She basically just admitted that she knows nothing about the Constitution. She thinks she is above the law and has a right to decide what can and cannot be done with the Constitution without debate. “Reasonably well-educated”?? Woman or “THING” as I like to call you. I would describe you as about as “well-educated” as bulldog on roller-skates.

    “Feinstein in commenting on the tough road ahead for her legislation said, “The road is uphill. I fully understand that.””

    Let’s see, for someone who is “Reasonably well-educated” and knows the Constitution, I would think that she has at least studied the “Art of War” which specifically states that “you should never chase a person going uphill”, as in if you want an uphill fight, YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE!!!!! I hope you “FULLY UNDERSTAND THAT” BITCH!!

    Hello, Military!!! You see this bitch here??? STOP WASTING YOUR TIME AND OURS AND JUST ARREST THE OLD SENILE HAG FOR TREASON!! You have We the People’s COMPLETE and ABSOLUTE approval!!

    You know We the People are right beyond a shadow of doubt and that this Zionist bitch is completely wrong, crazy and a traitor, so don’t waste anymore time and do your duty for We the People. Thank you!

  2. Sen. Dick Durbin at the end from Illinois stated that “NONE OF THESE RIGHTS ARE ABSOLUTE!”

    WTF!!!!!???? NONE OF OUR BILL OF RIGHTS ARE ABSOLUTE???? ARE YOU F**KING KIDDING ME!!!!!???? OMG!!!!

    ARREST THE SON OF A BITCH FOR TREASON!!!!!! HIGH TREASON!!!! HE JUST KILLED OUR BILL OF RIGHTS!!!!

    And is it me or does Feinstein look like she is on drugs in this meeting? Just look at her eyes. If anyone looks like a psychotic, doped out terrorist, IT’S HER!!! She can’t even keep her head up in the discussion and she spits out every other word like a bulldog. Has anyone checked this woman for rabies or mental disorders or even drugs?? And they want to check us for mental disorders? This woman looks like she doesn’t even know where her head is at and she wants to tell us how we live our lives?

    And she says, “No you said, PROHIBIT. I’m saying, EXEMPT”? WTF!!!??? IT’S THE SAME F**KING THING!!!!! OMG!!! What is wrong with these people?!!! That’s like saying, “No you said, STEALING. I’m saying, TAKING”. WTF???? IT’S THE SAME DAMN THING!!! GRRR!!!!

    I’M ABSOLUTELY FLIPPIN’ MAD!!! How they can just sit there and play six grade children games and get away with it is beyond me. Where are all the adults in the room. We have a bunch of old people in wheel chairs who can barely keep their eyes open and head above the desk when they talk (AKA Feinstein in this video). This shit has to stop. I’m so sick of it.

    1. Hey NC, this f**king bitch is not going away until the billionaire husband is exposed for his dirty work. We’ll just lay in the weeds until the time is right, and this whole issue can be resolved in a matter of weeks. Every day tptb are seeing the chokehold on the american people ain’t workin’ and sh*t’s about to bust loose. Hang in there brother, the time is near.

  3. “Senator Ted Cruz also lectured Feinstein as to the meaning of the Constitution and why the language was written in the way it was by the framers.

    “I’m not a sixth-grader,” she told Cruz.”

    You got that right, b#tch. A sixth grader’s got WAY more common sense than you, and WAY less chance of being hung eventually.

    I REALLY HATE this c#nt!!!

    I REALLY wish she was from ANY other state than Crazifornia!

  4. Hey Diane Slimestine, YES BY GOD I DO NEED A BAZOKA OR 3.
