Second Amendment Hypocrites: Senators Schumer and Feinstein

By Jim Kouri, CPP
September 23, 2005
A recent poll conducted by the National Association of Chiefs of Police indicated that almost 64 percent of police commanders and sheriffs favor a law allowing private citizens to carry concealed firearms for protection. Almost 73 percent said that citizens should not be restricted from purchasing more than one weapon, and 96 percent say they believe criminals obtain firearms from illegal sources.
Unfortunately most states -- especially those called Blue States due to their Liberal-leanings -- continue to prohibit private citizens from carrying concealed handguns.
At the same time, there are outspoken opponents of gun ownership, such as Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Diane Feinstein (D-CA), who are carrying concealed weapons, according to WABC Radio's Mark Levin. Levin, a recognized constitutional expert, heads the Landmark Legal Foundation. The LLF's goal is to protect American's from unreasonable and illegal government intrusions and violations of the US Constitution, including the Second Amendment.
The mainstream news media have been aware that several antigun proponents are carrying concealed firearms but have failed to expose this hypocrisy. This writer's efforts to discover how many other anti-gunners are also packing heat -- a right they wish to deny other citizens -- met with limited results.
Not only does Schumer carry a handgun, the New York City Police Department also provides armed escorts for the good senator. In fact, the Government Accounting Office -- the investigative arm of the US Congress -- slammed Schumer's use of police resources for personal protection. It's clear that Schumer believes he's special. He wishes to ban private citizens' ownership of firearms, while he enjoys layers of protection.
"No wonder Chuckie Schumer shoots his mouth off so much -- he's able to protect himself," says a 25-year police veteran.
Also, a check of Pistol License records shows that Senator Schumer possesses an "unrestricted" pistol permit, a rarity in New York City. Licenses are distributed in different categories in the Big Apple: Target Permits allow only use of a firearm at a licensed firing range; Premises Permits allow weapons to be kept in a home or apartment; Restricted Permits allow the gunowner to carry their firearms concealed but only within the purview of their job (security, jewelers, armored car guards, etc.). So it's evident that Senator Schumer has two sets of rules -- one for Americans and one for himself.
And then we have Senator Diane Feinstein on the Left Coast who possesses something more rare than a conservative Republican in San Francisco -- an unrestricted concealed weapons permit. Apparently without shame, she participated in a citywide gun turn-in program that was intended to create some kind of statue from the donated guns that were to be melted down. One of her police body guards let it slip that she contributed a cheap model for the meltdown, while retaining her .357 magnum revolver for her own personal self-defense.
Hypocrisy is not limited to politicians when it comes to the Second Amendment. For Example, well-known Washington-based columnist, Carl Rowan, often wrote about the ills of firearms ownership. Until, that is, he shot and wounded a teenager who trespassed on his property. The white teenaged boy claimed he wanted to try Rowan's swimming pool. Rowan, an African-American, retaliated with deadly force using a firearm. That's when the news came out that Carl Rowan, gun-control advocate, actually possessed a license to own firearms.
Another example is the loudmouth entertainer, Rosie O'Donnell, who once ran roughshod over conservative actor Tom Selleck on national television because of his stance supporting the Second Amendment. Although Ms. O'Donnell doesn't carry a gun, she has three armed bodyguards who protect her, her wife and her children, something the vast majority of hardworking Americans could never afford. Isn't it comforting to know these Liberals are looking out for us?

Hypocrisy is as ever - alive and well. It will ever be thus as we get more and more - ''do as I say, not what I do''.

Furthermore - proof also if any were needed, it is all about control - of the peons - US!!!!

this shouldn't be a surprise, it's been going on for years.

I know a person that finally got a California permit to carry after they got a job working in the office of a state Senator.

Here in Maryland it's all about money and who you know. :mad:

Consistancy

This hypocracy is entirely consistant with the elitest, liberal mindset. They think they are superior to us peons. Therefore, they think, "I'll have a gun and anything else I need, and the rest of you don't need such privileges." This is not so different than the elected officials, especially the U.S. Senators, who live like royalty, while the rest of us sweat to pay for their limousines, junkets around the world, secret service protection, health clubs, exclusive barber shops, etc, etc. Makes me sick. :mad:

I don't understand the liberals mindset. Why would gun control lower violent crime? Keeping guns out of law abiding citizens does't make these people safer in their homes and streets. And when have violent criminals been concerned about the laws of the land? Making tighter laws on guns is benefiting the criminals. It makes us easier targets. Don't most criminals already get their guns illegally anyway?

I just don't follow their string of logic. :confused:

I'm am sure that I am just preaching to the choir but it felt good to rant for a moment. :wink:

Oh it's okay for them to have guns. They're special. The rest of us are peasants.

It's a class war that's been going for some time now. Peasants in the 1200s weren't allowed to have personal arms, but for the nobility bearing arms was noblesse oblige... :grumpy:

Now matter what, there will always be the spear, the sword, or the gun or something like it. Some personal arm. And it represents power, power that some people will seek to hoard to themselves.

Schumer and Feinstein have the typical Liberal mindset, We are the elite and only the elite can be trusted with firearms.

Do you ever wonder how all the major news media got to be both liberal and anti-gun?

Good question Ron - and some of the answer has to be the sheep mentality. Add to that failure to live in the ''real world'', either because they are so insulated from it or refuse to open eyes to truth and reality.

They are for most part the servants of disinformation and misinformation - as long as it sells copy or air time (and gets votes) - it'll do fine and to hell with consequences.

Don't forget Micheal Moore

Can't remember what state he was in but I'm pretty sure I remember one of his body guards getting arrested for illegally carrying a hand gun. He didn't have any kind of permit. I wonder if his body guard ever shot some one if good old Mr. Moore would take that person to K-mart and try to return those bullets too?

Long time ago, seems like Ted Kennedy's body guards got caught with full autos on them.

The liberal elitists think they know what is best for the rest of us as we are too stupid/naive/unaware to make our own decisions and take care of ourselves. They feel thay have a duty to take care of us. That justifies the I can, You Can't attitude and actions. You are right, they think they are morally and intellectually superior to the 'people'.

If I remember correctly that was in New York State. If I really stretch my memory I think I recall something about them being in one of the airports around the city (LaGuardia I think) when he was arrested. I think this is the only time I've ever appreciated my former home's gun laws.

Moore Bodyguard Arrested on Gun Charge

A bodyguard who has protected outspoken moviemaker and gun-control advocate Michael Moore was arrested at Kennedy International Airport for allegedly carrying a pistol without a New York license, authorities said Thursday.

Patrick Burk, 34, faced arraignment on a felony charge of criminal possession of a weapon. Prosecutors did not have his attorney's name.


Burk was questioned by police Wednesday night after he notified a United Airlines ticket agent that he wanted to carry his weapon - unloaded and in a bag - on a flight to Los Angeles, said Port Authority spokesman Tony Ciavolella.
The bodyguard, who works for the California-based security firm Gavin de Becker & Associates, told police he had traveled to New York with Moore earlier this month, Ciavolella said. He produced licenses for his Mauser handgun from California and Florida, but not New York, which prompted his arrest.

Burk has been assigned to protect Moore at times in the past, but is not his personal bodyguard, Gavin de Becker said.

De Becker defended Burk, saying he had followed proper procedures at the airport. He called him "a leading professional in his field."

A call to a spokesman for Moore was not immediately returned.

Moore, the director of "Fahrenheit 9/11," won the documentary Academy Award for 2002's "Bowling for Columbine," a scathing look at the gun culture in America.

In an interview last year with Playboy magazine, Moore called the National Rifle Association a "radical, freaky group."

"Most Americans are with me on this," he said about stricter gun controls. "They understand duck hunters don't need Uzis and cop-killer bullets."
And this one fromCCRKBA.org

"Kennedy has employed armed bodyguards in the past," Waldron said. "Some years ago, Kennedy bodyguard Chuck Stein was arrested at the Russell Senate Office Building with a handgun, two submachine guns and 146 rounds of ammunition.

The best answer to this is TERM LIMITS then we can get these people out who have nothing better to do than get on the band wagon to stay in the news. Got to make new laws to show they are doing something. Just like a realality TV show got to do something outrageous so people will watch you. It's not about going to Washington to help the people in your state any more. It's about power and connections. Then there's all the perks. Get the deadwood out.
