"the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War" Hahahaha...what a fckn moron. No wonder you defend her.<quoted text>
LIAR. She never said that. What she said was "that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally" should not have access assault weapons. Everyone should agree with her.
Dianne Feinstein verbatim:
"…what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States… that included active military. The problem with expanding this is that you know with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this. So you know I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to — if you’re going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon."
"In 1980, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) added PTSD to the third edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-III) nosologic classification scheme "
Idiot libturd thinks the iraq war started pre-1980. Stupid fckn sheep!
