How stupid can a congressperson be?
Quote of the day by Senator Dianne Feinstein:

Dianne Feinstein: "All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms"

Yep,- she really said it on Thursday in a meeting in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the quote below from the LA Times is priceless. Sometimes even the L.A. Times gets it right.

Kurt Nimmo from the Los Angeles Times:

"Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her anti-firearms bill." "Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we're Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth." "The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words."

we should all try to defend our vets, because a lot of them died so that we could enjoy the freedom that odumba is stealing away.

Might I suggest that a bit of fact checking will show that THIS IS GROSSLY DISTORTED? Believing everything that is posted on the Internet is not ever good.

Diane Feinstein definitely believes no veteran should own a firearm though. She has went on record as saying that no private firearm ownership should be legal of any kind, veteran or otherwise.

So the statement "Diane Feinstein doesn't think veterans should be allowed to own firearms" is unequivocally true.
wow

all "fact check" and urban legend, and truth or fiction, and rumor checks "information" are all liberal owned.
so their truth is different than the real truth.

as everyone knows, liberals are biased when it comes to the truth.
i think it may be due to the fact that the lying demons of he11 are living inside of them.
this is true

With all the myths floating around, it's worth noting that:

1) Reagan was a staunch supporter of the assault weapons ban and other reforms backed by Feinstein. Look up his '90s op-ed in the NYT.

2) Feinstein was CCW-certified and carried for years, because a left-wing group was trying to kill her. They successfully planted a bomb at her home, but it failed.

As everyone knows: We learn from this that, we must beware of Liberals trying to rewrite their history in an effort to “spruce up” their political legacy.
Fact check and Urban legands are owned by liberals to mislead a trusting public that is searching for the truth.
History has been rewritten and falsified by that group of heathen in the white house, that calls themselves "The Government of the people".
When Reagan was in office, he never did try to go on a rampage to steal our gods, our guns, or our religion.
And that's a fact Jack!

Wow ..... you guys will believe anything. That's a fake e-mail that has been going around. Research before posting, guys.

It's another attempt at falsehood by some teabaggers.

A Texas Senator was seeking to modify proposed assault weapons legislation by attaching an exemption for veterans. But it had no restrictions.

What Feinstein said (it was her bill) is that putting an exemption in an assault weapons ban (note it wasn't a general firearms ban, but for assault weapons, that makes the second teabag lie in the e-mail) for veterans was not a good idea due to both the number of post-traumatic stress disorder victims among veterans, plus the amendment didn't require the proper tools needed to verify that a gun buyer was really a veteran, and she felt the proposed amendment by the Texas Senator should include a provision for screening out mentally incapacitated veterans.

Jenny, speaking of falsehood...you assume a "teabagger" started this email. Really? Do you have proof? Do you really believe snopes? There are so many goofy quotes from this woman, who knows whether she really said it or not, unless you happened to be there when the statement was/was not said...

Q: Did Sen. Dianne Feinstein say all military veterans are mentally ill and should not be allowed to own guns?
A: No. She said veterans should not be exempt from her proposed assault weapons ban, citing post-traumatic stress disorder as a concern. She did not say all veterans suffer from PTSD or that all veterans should not own guns.
FULL QUESTION
Did Dianne Feinstein really say all veterans are mentally ill and should not be allowed to own guns? The quote was supposed to have occurred in a Senate committee meeting.
FULL ANSWER
This claim — which has gone viral — grossly distorts what Feinstein actually said at a March 7 Senate hearing on her legislation, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013.
At the hearing, Sen. John Cornyn of Texas offered an amendment that would have exempted military veterans from the assault weapons ban. The bill provides very few exceptions for individuals. As we’ve written before, the bill exempts active military members and law enforcement. It also provides an exemption, in some cases, for retired law enforcement officials. The legislation says that if a law enforcement agency sells or transfers a semiautomatic weapon on the prohibited list to an officer upon retirement or if that officer had such a weapon for “official use before such retirement” then the retired officer can keep the weapon if that person is “retired in good standing” and is “not otherwise prohibited from receiving a firearm, of a semiautomatic weapon.”
Cornyn argued that if retired police officers can keep their weapons, then military veterans should be able, too. He spoke as if all retired police officers are exempt, but they are not.(The committee’s discussion of Cornyn’s amendment can be found at the 1-hour, 32-minute mark of the C-Span video tape of the bill’s markup.)
Feinstein, a California Democrat, noted that there was no exemption for military veterans in the assault weapons ban that was enacted in 1994 as part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. That ban expired in 2004. She then went on to discuss her concerns for providing an exemption for military veterans.
Feinstein, March 7: If I understand this, this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was in effect and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States. So 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 transferrer 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.

ah yes...you mention ronald reagan..here is some more info for someone who really isn't searching for the truth. you can find out more about his ban on weapons if you do a little research..

Ronald Reagan, one of the staunchest defenders of the Second Amendment, who wrote to Congress in 1994 urging them — this is Ronald Reagan speaking — urging them to listen to the American public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of military-style assault weapons."

Reagan, who was shot while president in March, 1981, backed a ban on assault weapons and the Brady Bill, proposed by an anti-gun group formed by the family of Reagan's press secretary, Jim Brady, who was also shot.
