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."

FACT: At the height of the Vietnam War, Bush picked the Texas Air National Guard. Active duty in the Guard is not the same as ACTIVE duty in the military. He was draft dodging, pure and simple and he never completed his commitment to the Air National Guard.

The cancelled policies ARE being rewritten and the insured have been told their policy will be automatically renewed under the new terms unless they opt to purchase insurance elsewhere.
"uselesssinceforever "
The policy's are being cancelled. Then they offer the new terms, less wanted coverage at a higher cost. Of course late 50 early 60 years old will be happy to know they are paying for maternity care, pediatrics and birth cont5rol, items they do not want or need.
Were you born stoopid or do you just practice a lot?

Tell me. When did Bush ever serve a day in the active military?
George W. Bush joined the 147th Fighter Interceptor Group of the Texas Air National Guard on May 27, 1968. He committed to serve until May 26, 1974, with two years on active duty while training to fly and four years on part-time duty.

Following basic training, Bush began 53 weeks of flight training at Moody Air Force Base, Georgia. In December 1969, Bush began 21 weeks of fighter interceptor training on the F-102 in Houston at the 147th's Combat Crew Training School, soloing in March 1970 and graduating in June 1970. When he graduated, he had fulfilled his two-year active-duty commitment.

In November 1970, Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian, commander of the 111th Fighter Squadron, recommended that Bush be promoted to First Lieutenant, calling him "a dynamic outstanding young officer" who stood out as "a top notch fighter interceptor pilot." He said that "Lt. Bush's skills far exceed his contemporaries," and that "he is a natural leader whom his contemporaries look to for leadership. Lt. Bush is also a good follower with outstanding disciplinary traits and an impeccable military bearing." Bush was promoted.

Air National Guard members could volunteer for active duty service with the Air Force in a program called Palace Alert which deployed F-102 pilots to Europe and Southeast Asia including Vietnam and Thailand. According to three pilots from Bush's squadron, Bush inquired about this program but was advised by the base commander that he did not have the necessary flying experience (500 hours) at the time and that the F-102 would soon be retired.

Bush performed part-time Guard duty as an F-102 pilot through April 1972 logging a total of 336 flight hours.

After April 1972, Bush may have failed to meet the attendance requirements established for members of the Air National Guard. In mid-1972, he failed to meet the Air Force requirement for an annual physical examination for pilots and lost his authorization to be a pilot.

In September 1973, Bush requested discharge from Texas Air National Guard service to attend Harvard Business School as a full time student. Jerry Killian recommended approval of the discharge the following day. Bush had completed five years, four months, and five days toward his six-year service obligation.

On October 1, 1973, Bush was honorably discharged from the Texas Air National Guard and transferred to the inactive reserves in Denver, Colorado. He was discharged from the Air Force Reserve on November 21, 1974, ending his military service.

You summarized his military career much better than I did.

Except to repeat again that Bush did inquire about volunteering for active duty service with the Air Force in a program called Palace Alert - which deployed F-102 pilots to Europe and Southeast Asia including Vietnam and Thailand - according to three pilots in his squadron, but he didn't have the necessary flying experience (500 hours) at the time and the F-102 would soon be retired.

Oh stop trying to change the subject. It doesn't matter one iota when the term PTSD was coined. What matters is that those who suffer from PTSD should be denied access to assault weapons. That is what Dianne Feinstein said....she did not say all veterans suffer from PTSD. My point was...THAT WAS A LIE. Grow up and get an education.
that wasn't my "lie", stupid. I read your post and came away with a different take. She's an idiot, your type of politician. Haha
