She’s serious. No, really.
Long-time gun grabber Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was out on the Sunday talking head circuit on April 21, doing what she does best: exploiting another tragedy to promote her anti-gun agenda. This time it was the Boston bombings.
In an exchange with Chris Wallace reminiscent of Abbott & Costello’s Who’s on First, Feinstein reiterated her seminal justification for impinging on the Second Amendment: “I don’t think so.” Here’s her response to Wallace about why Watertown citizens shouldn’t be able to protect themselves with a weapon of their choice when an armed and dangerous suspect is on the loose:
“Do they need assault an assault weapon?” she chirps. “I don’t think so.”
When Wallace follows up with, “Shouldn’t they have the right to decide whatever weapon they feel they need to protect themselves?,” Di Fi jumped to machine guns, 12-gauge shotguns, the element of surprise, and “police all over Watertown.”
They Know Best
Essentially, Sen. Feinstein’s answer to whether or not you should be able to decide what weapon you need to defend yourself or your family is No. Opines the good senator, when seconds count, the police are just minutes away. Because as any good Lib will tell you, They Know Best. For more on this classic Lib/Leftie attitude, see That Magical, Mythical Place of ‘I Don’t Think So.’
Any guesses as to why Feinstein doesn’t wage war against warrantless search and seizures and apparent Fourth Amendment violations in Boston? Hey, if she’s going to trample on the Constitution, why stop at the Second Amendment?
Here’s an idea, California: When Feinstein’s up for re-election, how ’bout replaying her favorite line: “I don’t think so.”
