Busted: Gun Control Legislator Dianne Feinstein Discusses Why She Concealed Carried Firearms
Kyle Becker | On 26, Jan 2013
Senator Dianne Feinstein, author of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and the senator currently at the forefront of the Democrat Party’s Congressional push for tighter gun control, talks about why she once had a concealed carry permit for a gun in the aftermath of what she referred to as a terrorist attack. The video is taken from the floor of Congress.
“Less than 20 years ago, I was the target of a terrorist group. It was the New World Liberation Front. They blew up power stations and put a bomb at my home when my husband was dying of cancer and the bomb was set to detonate around 2 ‘o clock in the morning, but it was a construction explosive that doesn’t detonate when it drops below freezing. It doesn’t usually freeze in San Francisco, but on this night it dropped below freezing and the bomb didn’t detonate.
“I was very lucky, but I thought of what might have happened. Later the same group shot out all the windows of my home and 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. When I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick, I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out I was going to take them with me. Now having said all of that, that was period of time ago and I’ve watched through these 20 years as terrorism has increased both on the far extremist left and the far extremist right in this country.”
It is interesting why some politicians think that their right to self-defense, whether in the form of concealed carry handguns or personal armed security, is superior to others’ right to self-defense. I thought the Democrat Party was all about equality and rights? It appears to be more about government control over individuals.
Senator Dianne Feinstein no longer has a concealed carry permit… because she no longer needs one. As a United States Senator, she has access to armed security. But when she someday exits office, does anyone wonder if her home will be without any kind of arms on the premises?
