For Senator, Billís Defeat Is Personal and Political

WASHINGTON — When Senator Dianne Feinstein led the successful push for a federal assault weapons ban in 1994, she had a simple pitch to skeptical colleagues: What would you need to support this bill?

But when she started asking that question this year as she pushed for a renewal of the ban, the answer was almost always a resolute “Nothing.”

“I don’t think she was ever under any illusion that it would be easy,” said Senator Barbara Boxer, also a California Democrat.

Stripping Americans of their God given right to defend themselves shouldn't be, you malignant witch.

I hope she and all her gun grabbing partners are in deep shock and pain over this defeat.

You know it does. Especially when the dems have been able to cheat and steal everything they have always wanted. All but this. :-)

Hey Senator Frankenstein, how is your investigation into the very serious Security Leaks going -——————— from last September?

They will mourn today and begin tomorrow to plot the next move. One thing about the Dems (vs Rs) s that they never give up, they keep pushing and pushing and pushing, over decades if need be, to get what they want.

The gun-grabbing elites aren’t sure the homo/liberal supreme court is ready to trash the 2nd and the Constitution YET. They may need one more seat.

Hey Dianne, it is really simple. We have the guns, you don't.

And besides, only 4% of Americans think gun control is an important problem.

Why not spend your time on something worthwhile like, I don't know, maybe repealing nobamacare? Gonna happen anyway. And ya gotta do that before you can ram through single payer.

You are so right about that. The other thing they do is attack the same issue from several different approaches almost simultaneously. Look at all the things in Obamacare that do deal with mental health and people having guns or healthcare for illegals.

They just won’t go away.

F U, you tyrannical, malignant old bitch!

I am thoroughly enjoying my schaedenfreude right now, revelling in your anguish. Get ready for more because 100 million gun owners are ready to deliver it. Traitorous bitch.

She needs to have her mailbox filled with life sized posters of Ted Cruz with his question to her about what other rights she would restrict if it were up to her printed on it!

Let that be the Bitch’s legacy.

But she and fourth hubbie “Tricky Dickie Blum” have managed to steal the taxpayers blind.

Its unfortunate that we upset a fine Senator lady like DIFI by rejecting all her ideas.

BAWWWWAA!

Re #9 and Feinstein saying “I have been a senator for over 20 years”, but she left out the rest of the sentence which is “but I’ve been a leftist asshole all my life”.

What a waste of a human being, and a crook at that.

...she stood on the floor and implored them, “Show some guts.”

And 60 of them did! At least she can take comfort in that her gun control amendment is the only one to get 60 votes! Hehehehehehehe

I think it is photoshopped so the weapon has no barrel pointing directly at the “esteemed” senator’s head. Political correctness meets 2nd Ammendment.

Anytime freedom wins, a demon loses its wings.

Suck it up, DiFi. The people, through their representatives, spoke.
