Flashback: Sen. Dianne Feinstein Has Conceal Carry Permit
Breitbart ^

Posted on 12/19/2012 10:43:04 PM PST by chessplayer

After the deadly Aurora, Colorado shooting Feinstein criticized those who said responsible conceal carry permit holders could have stopped gunman James Holmes, saying "...and maybe you could have had a firefight and killed many more people. These are people in a theater."

Opponents of the Assault Weapons Ban point to Feinstein’s hypocrisy on the issue, as the Senator herself said she obtained a concealed carry permit in California when she felt her life was threatened.

I remember Feinstein’s picture at a press conference holding an AK47 with her finger wrapped around the trigger..maybe from the Clinton years. That the one?

And remember the pic of Chuck the Shmuck shooting what looked like a machine pistol with a nasty smirk on his face.

I cannot wait to see that c*** leave the Senate. The only question, who will replace her and much more horrible will the new senator be ? On Liz Warren of MA, we can count on her being very horrible being a typical leftist broad.

Everyone should read this gem by Karl Denninger on the subject of Obama (and many others - including Feinstein) being complete hypocrites on the gun ssue: http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=215107

Please also pass it on to other threads and your email lists. This kind of brutal logic MUST become part of the “national conversation on guns” that the gun-ban crowd wants to have.

It is right. It all depends on which part of the state you live in.

In Los Angeles County it’s next to impossible to get one.

If your dad got one there, I’d like to know what excuse he used for claiming he needed a CCW.

I believe it depends on the sheriff . This was Humboldt county and he did have to take a course and pay a fee. He didn’t carry large sums of money or anything like that. He just wanted it so he could have it in his pickup. There were definitely hoops to jump through but it wasn’t that bad here. I know some sheriffs make it near impossible.

Feinstein should be among the very first to give up her firearms ~ law or no law.

And her bodyguards, and her primo healthcare.

Unless she’s buying her own her health care comes from one of the providers used by your letter carrier. Hardly primo!

“She very publicly gave up one of them and quietly kept the other one.”

I still say she needs the right and the will to defend herself.
Most women will take aim as fast as the men.

I don't disagree that she should be able to defend herself and never will.

My point is that:

A. She wants to disarm us "little people" while the "important people" like herself get to remain armed.

B. When she's caught in that hypocrisy, she makes a show of giving up one of her permits without acknowledging that she's keeping the other one.

To me, that's elitist hypocrisy on steroids.

I think it was Rosie O’Donnell who used to rail against guns while she had armed bodyguards take her kids to school.

Of course. Rosie is another one of those important people who needs armed protection for herself and her family. She's perfectly happy with having the government keep us little people from having that same protection.

I certainly do not disagree with you.
Wouldn’t it be nice to be represented in washington by good humble people that doesn’t do everything with a show—disgusting.

I live in California, the San Diego area, and I am neither a politician nor in law enforcement, but had no difficulty obtaining a concealed carry permit, for cause, back in 1977, nor in having it renewed every two years since then. And, of course, Dianne Feinstein IS in politics, and very prominent at that, so, by your own argument, Oldexpat, she might have been expected to get a CCP quite easily.
