HYPOCRISY IS ALIVE AND WELL…. WATCH DIANE FEINSTEIN EXPLAIN WHY SHE IS OKAY WITH ARMING HERSELF…BUT NOT OKAY WITH US HAVING WEAPONS TO USE FOR SELF DEFENSE PURPOSES…
Feinstein in 1995 on her concealed carry permit: ‘I know the urge to arm yourself because that’s what I did’
On April 27, 1995, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) spoke at the US Senate hearing on terrorism shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing.
During the hearing, she referenced her concealed carry permit and how she carried a gun with her in the 1970’s, citing the urge to arm yourself for protection- in her case from threats.
“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 and I made the determination if somebody was going to try and take me out, I was going to take them with me.”
This CCW permit was obtained in San Francisco, CA which would make it one of the only permits- if not the only such permit- given their strict gun laws.
In 1994, Sen. Feinstein championed the federal assault weapons ban which expired in 2004 due to sunset provisions in the law.
Now, after recent shooting tragedies, Feinstein is making another push for tighter gun control. She is widely known as one of the biggest anti-gun and anti-NRA advocates in Washington, D.C.
