Feinstein: Buy a shotgun to defend yourself from terrorists
Washington Examiner ^ | April 22, 2013 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 04/22/2013 7:29:17 AM PDT by theruleshavechanged

Feinstein cited the Vice President Joe Biden’s promotion of the use of a shotgun for self-defense.

“[Y]ou could use a 12-gauge shotgun and have a good defensive effect and there’s the element of surprise,” she added.

Maybe what I do to defend myself is none of her damned business.

“there’s the element of surprise”

Yeah, especially if you shoot them through the front door before they see you.

Yeah right. But only if you can get through the licensing bureacracy that she wants to implement. She’s a dope.

It's a good thing 2A doesn't care what you think, lady (term used loosely).

What is with this sudden love of shotguns on the left? 12ga is much more likely to penetrate interior walls and harm innocents than is 5.56/.223

Only agents of the feral government and the bodyguards of elected government officials should have guns.

The peasants should be disarmed.

Makes them much easier to herd into the ovens.

Aside from the stupidity of the remarks, I don’t hear the Democrats proposing a shotgun-purchase program so that low-income families can be armed and ready for action.

I also don’t hear calls from Democrats for universal Open Carry of these weapons, which clearly should be required since terrorist actions are disproportionately occurring at places like malls, theaters, churches, and schools.

They should distribute the ammo from recent government purchases to that the market for weaponry doesn’t drive prices out of reach for everyone. It is, of course, the only way to overcome this weapons-shortage crisis.

They (the left) must have determined (or just feel) that a shotgun wouldn’t be very effective in resisting leftist tyranny.

I wonder if Feinstein and Biden realize that the Columbine shooters both had, and used, a 12 gauge shotgun?

Probably not, or they’d be adding *those* to their idiotic gun control bills too.

It’s all part of their incremental approach to getting rid of guns. They don’t really care which is safer or more effective. They just focus on what they perceive as the most dangerous (to tyrants) of weapons, currently modern rifles, and tell us, “See, you can still have your shotguns”. Next would be handguns, as they already know that most gang killings are with handguns. Then they will say it again, “You can still keep your shotguns!”. Even if they could somehow get rid of every weapon but shotguns, then guess what...there would be killings with shotguns, and that would be the end.

What "element of surprise" is unique to a shotgun? Except maybe "hey, it is surprising that the terrorist has a military firearm, hundreds of rounds of ammo and plenty of explosives while I am forced to defend myself with just this measly bird gun!"

What hideous ignorance and idiocy coming from a person with her fingers on the levers of State power. Why do we put up with this?

Element of surprise?

The element of surprise is always with the attacker, who picks the time and place. Sometimes they lose it, but that’s tough luck.

Feinstein can kiss my Obama.

No, she's not. She is evil - she is trying, and has been for 20 years or more, to remove any effective implements of defending ourselves and our liberties.

She is EVIL. Repeat, EVIL. Don't lump her in with the merely ignorant, she's out after all of our guns.

Think about why the feds generally don't show up with shotties, but with rifles (semi- or full-auto).

EVIL is at work here, not ignorance.

Did she say what type shotgun? single shot 12 gauge? She’s on record for prohibiting many self-defense shotguns. I believe she’s also on record for stating that her “assault weapon” ban was just a start and she was for getting all firearms out of the hands of the citizenry.

And I’m sure this is understood on their part as well.
And I’m wondering why the push for “buy a shotgun”.

They must not think a shotgun is useful for defending oneself against commies in position of power.

So one type of weapon is ok?
All fire projectiles. Shotguns are also simiautomatic.
Depending on the round all are deadly!
So it’s ok to kill, and own a shotgun for defense?
Stupidity reigns supreme in liberal la la land!

Boston police fired more than 200 rounds from semi automatic weapons at two bombers and didn’t kill either one of them. She wants to limit me to 5 rounds or less in a shotgun?

How magnanimous of her, she is allowed as one of the special class to carry a concealed hand gun, but she will allow us to have a shotgun! When the elite surrender all of their weapons and armed security I might consider listening to them. Then again no, I never did like clowns.

OK Diane. In the firefight that occurred in Boston last week it would have been better, or at least adequate, if all law enforcement personnel had only shotguns - right? Tell the SWAT teams in Boston and elsewhere that all they need to use to protect us and themselves is a shotgun. Tell the Presidential secret service detail that they can only carry shotguns. Tell the Dept. of Homeland Security that all they should be purchasing for ammo are shotgun shells.

Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:
“Frankly, I don’t know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I’m not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we’re Number One. There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on ‘Macbeth’. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.”
— Columnist Burt Prelutsky
