    The Devil wrote me back...my senator

    She (or whatever lacky typed this) even spelled my name wrong...

    Dear Jonahan:



    Thank you for contacting me to share your opposition to assault weapons legislation. I respect your opinion on this important issue and welcome the opportunity to provide my point of view.


    Mass shootings are a serious problem in our country, and I have watched this problem get worse and worse over the 40 years I have been in public life. From the 1966 shooting rampage at the University of Texas that killed 14 people and wounded 32 others, to the Newtown massacre that killed 20 children and 6 school teachers and faculty, I have seen more and more of these killings. I have had families tell me that they no longer feel safe in a mall, in a movie theater, in their business, and in other public places, because these deadly weapons are so readily available. These assault weapons too often fall into the hands of grievance killers, juveniles, gangs, and the deranged.


    I recognize that the Second Amendment provides an individual right to bear arms, but I do not believe that right is unlimited or that it precludes taking action to prevent mass shootings. Indeed, in the same Supreme Court decision that recognized the individual right to bear arms, District of Columbia v. Heller, the Court also held that this right, like other constitutional rights, is not unlimited. That is why assault weapons bans have consistently been upheld in the courts, both before and after the Heller decision. I believe regulation of these weapons is appropriate.


    Once again, thank you for your letter. Although we may disagree, I appreciate hearing from you and will be mindful of your thoughts as the debate on this issue continues. If you have any additional comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.


    Sincerely yours,


    Dianne Feinstein
    United States Senator

    She's your Senator? You poor, poor guy.
    At least my Senator, Joe Manchin, pretends he's pro 2-A.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    It is a double edged sword. She shows (most) of her true colors. And I get to vote against her, and curse her name! I am a pilgrim in an unfriendly land.

    Did you expect otherwise? You face just as large of an uphill battle as those suffering under the Bloomberg regime.

    At least she took a stand. Here's the pablum I got back a few days ago from my waffle, I mean Senator. I don't know if she's my enemy or my friend on this issue.


    "Thank you for contacting me about the tragic and senseless violence in Newtown, Connecticut. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and concerns with me.

    If there is anything that deeply unites Americans across the country it is our love for our children and grandchildren and our desire to keep them safe. In the wake of the heartbreaking tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary, all of us must come together to determine what steps can be taken to protect our children. That means discussing how we can strengthen our gun laws to help stop attacks like this from happening again, while protecting responsible gun ownership and preserving our hunting heritage. It also means strengthening mental health services, and focusing on the broader culture of violence in the media and our society. These solutions may not be easy, but one thing should be clear complacency and inaction until the next attack must not be an option.

    Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.

    Pretends or hasn't concluded which way the political winds are blowing?

    Just in case there is still anyone who doesn't know what she really wants:

    ... in 1995 Feinstein told the Washington Post “there is no question that I would have preferred to see an outright ban on the possession of semi-automatic assault weapons in America, including the 1.5 million to 2 million currently in circulation. But, simply stated, the votes were not there, and on CBS 60 Minutes she said, “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 them all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t there.”
    The quote is from NRA-ILA | Gateway to Broader Gun Control

    I got the exact same response from her a couple weeks back. Her and Carl Levin both need to go!!

    Don't ever think that the reason I'm peaceful is because I'm afraid to be violent!
