Senator Di Fi Lets the Gun Control Cat Out of the Bag


Chuck Todd, of NBC/MSNBC fame asked California Senator Diane Feinstein, long time leader of the gun control crowd, “Let me ask you this: give me the slate of laws that if you could wave your wand and have enacted that could have prevented Vegas?”

Sen. Feinstein, to her credit replied, “I’m not sure there is any set of laws that could have prevented it.”

You've got to hand it to her! After all these years leading the charge for gun control, finally a rare moment of honesty! But that isn't stopping her from increasing the number of laws that will not deter criminals, will not deter mass shootings, but will make it more difficult for law abiding gun owners to keep and bear arms.

Forgive me if you've heard it before, but this is my favorite DI Fi story:

Shortly after Dianne Feinstein became mayor of San Francisco, in the wake of the Milk/Moscone shootings, Ms. Feinstein got a law passed in San Francisco making all handguns illegal within city limits. (This was overturned shortly thereafter by the California Supreme Court.)  I remember sitting in my car, listening to a Bay Area news station, KCBS, when they announced the passage of this law. By some coincidence (or the devious mind of the news director), the very next story was of a gunman who had robbed a liquor store in San Francisco using a sawed off shotgun.

Let's recap: It is illegal to make or possess a sawed off shotgun. It is illegal to use a sawed off shotgun in the commission of a crime: Armed robbery is illegal. If he fired any shots, it is illegal to discharge a firearm within city limits. Despite a number of his actions being illegal, mostly felonious, none of the laws on the books deterred this fellow from making his appointed rounds.

The idea that just one more gun law was going to reduce or eliminate gun crime is a fool's errand. Criminals by definition do not obey the law. That will not stop crusaders like Feinstein from adding to the minefield law abiding gun owners must traverse in the pursuit of maintaining their God given right of self defense.
