From the Sacramento Bee:
As senator, she led the campaign to pass the original federal assault weapons ban in 1994, but it expired in 2004, and she couldn’t attract enough support for renewal. The massacre of 20 elementary school children and six adults in Newtown, Conn., in December, so shocked and reviled the nation that she is trying again.…
“This is something I’m deeply passionate about, and I believe it saves lives,” she said. “I don’t intend to stop.”
No, she doesn’t care. It’s about control. She believes in guns as defensive tools, for herself. She believes you should be able to fistfight your rapist, or the gang of home invaders who bash down your door.
“She’s not afraid of guns,” said Susan Kennedy, a political consultant and former Feinstein aide.
After a militant anti-capitalist group called the New World Liberation Front unsuccessfully tried to bomb her house in the 1970s, Feinstein trained to use one.
“I know the urge to arm yourself, because that’s what I did,” she told Senate colleagues in 1995. “I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out, I was going to take them with me.”
She understands. She understands that you need to be dominated and controlled. She is the Ruling Class, you are the peasant.
In April 1983, Feinstein faced a recall election in her first term as mayor, organized by a communist group that opposed a citywide handgun ban that she had signed.
The ban lost in court, but she won the recall with 81 percent of the vote.
“I don’t think this will stop anyone from filing against me, but I think anyone who does is going to be creamed,” Feinstein said at the time, daring anyone to challenge her in the November election. Again, she prevailed.
Read that first part again. When even the communists are opposed to your gun bans, you’re so far in the wrong it’s insane. And of course she won – that’s how the Ruling Class works.
If I could have banned them all…I would have!
– Diane Feinstein, who it’s good to remember is one of those rare people in California who’s a gun owner with concealed carry permit. Stated on 60 Minutes, Feb 5 1995.
If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them… ‘Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ’em all in,’ I would have done it.

Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of all Americans to feel safe.
– Diane Feinstein
It makes no one feel safe except for the fool who’s never been in danger. Otherwise Feinstein would never have gotten a gun of her own – if being disarmed made her personally safe, she would’ve done so. But it doesn’t. It makes no one safe, except for the tyrant who controls the remaining guns.
We have seen this throughout history time and time again. What we have seen is the relentless march of dictators and tyrants. Now we see C.S. Lewis’s warning of the moral busybody tyrants – those who banned alcohol in the 1920s, those who want to ban soda and trans-fats in the 2000s and 2010s. These are the same people, the omnipotent moral busybodies who believe that you need to be dominated and controlled – and they will dominate you because you need to be crushed under their heel for your own good.
Gun control, as always, is about control.
