Diane Throws a Hissy Fit

April 4, 2013

Feinstein trigger

The gun control debate isn’t breaking Diane Feinstein’s way and she’s pretty pissed off about it.

It’s just gone from bad to worse for Di: first, while blood was still congealing on the floors of Sandy Hook, she way, way over-reached, calling for universal gun registration. She hardly had time to wipe the spittle from her chin before her Senate colleagues scrambled wildly for the exits.  Look, in America, tyranny doesn’t nakedly announce itself; you gotta take quiet little baby steps.  But even low-information voters could figure out that registration was just a prelude to confiscation and the thought of what might happen when SWAT teams went door to door looking for guns was…disconcerting.

So Diane retreated to her hoary default: banning “assault rifles”.  Hey, it worked like a charm in 1994 and this time around we’re talking Kindergarten kids.  Slam dunk.

Unfortunately for Big Momma, the FBI’s Uniform Crime Statistics, which are available online to just any old private citizen (who the hell authorized that?)  immediately revealed that more people are murdered with screwdrivers, cheese graters and penis enlargers than with semi-automatic rifles.  Hell, you don’t even have to stop to reload a cheese grater.

So, it fell to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to gingerly explain to Feinstein that, um, an assault weapons ban wasn’t going be part of the Senate’s “gun safety” bill, but, ah, she could get a courtesy vote on her very own assault weapons amendment, which, uh, no red state Senator in his right mind is gonna vote for.

Whoa, whoa…a few busted table lamps later, DiFi informed Reid, “You guys just don’t get it: this is my own personal, signature issue.  I’m not going quietly, I’m gonna make sure everybody knows you’re nothing but NRA lickspittles.”

Which is exactly what she did, the other day, at a San Francisco conclave of the Commonwealth Club, California’s elite society for people with progressive  political views and  endless reservoirs of cash to spread around.

The gist of Feinstein’s rant was that the freaking stupid public really didn’t know squat about the second Second Amendment, they’d just been bamboozled by the National Rifle Association and greedy gun manufacturers.  The NRA, with blood dripping from its fangs, should just sit down and shut up.  At the least.  In a perfect world, the NRA wouldn’t even be allowed to exist.

And then she went on to attack, without naming names, Democratic Senators in red states who’ve been ducking behind furniture and whistling past graveyards ever since they were deluged by letters, phone calls and emails from their more Constitutionally-minded constituents:

“A fear has set in that if they vote for the bill they won’t be re-elected. It’s that plain, it’s that simple. My view is they shouldn’’t go up to the Senate if they are unwilling to stand up and vote.

Translated into sane English, Feinstein, who regularly enjoys landslide re-election in crazy-blue California,  is saying her red-state Esteemed Colleagues shouldn’t even be in the Senate if they’re such pussies that they think they have to listen to voters.
