Skip to comments.Feinstein: Buy a shotgun to defend yourself from terrorists
Posted on 04/22/2013 7:29:17 AM PDT by theruleshavechanged
Feinstein cited the Vice President Joe Bidens 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 theres the element of surprise, she added.

Maybe what I do to defend myself is none of her damned business.
“theres 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.
I’d really prefer I didn’t have to wait until I see the whites of their eyes.
It's a good thing 2A doesn't care what you think, lady (term used loosely).
I bet DiFi has never touched a gun in her life
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
When will this fossil retire?
If I want your advice, I’ll ask for it, until such time, keep it to yourself, Diane.
Shut your Feinstein hole(you’ve got only one which is apparently used for dual purposes).
The shotguns are for when the .223, 7.62 etc runs out, and bird hunting.
Let me see her shoot a shotgun so I can watch her fall on her a**.
The peasants should be disarmed.
Makes them much easier to herd into the ovens.
Actually, I've tried that the last four home invasions and the bad guys still won't take that damn car off my hands..
I don’t know if she still has it, but at one time Fineswine held a concealed-carry permit.
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.
Either kind :)
She doesnt need one anymore as she now has bodygards for that.
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.
I’m more worried about defending my self from subhuman commies who are in positions of power like her.
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.
People like Feinswine need to be constantly asked
“what do you want to do after the people are disarmed that you can’t do before?”
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!
Perhaps Senator Feinstein should lead by example and tell her security detail that they can only carry shotguns.
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.
What do you know about it Fineswine? And who the FK do you think you are to tell me how I should defend myself you @$$wipe Socialist!
Load it up with .00 buckshot, and you can really reach out and touch someone.
Well, Diane. Did you carry a shotgun when you had a permit to carry for self defense? All that hate mail and threats and attacks you supposedly had? Or was it something a little more practical? Huh?
Obummer can`t pass the background check so he can`t have a shotgun- sorry
That’s okay, Obama doesn’t shoot skeet, he shoots rim!
Mmmmmmmm.....maybe if she caught her husband (who she helped get rich w/ her Senate office facilitating insider China deals) in a clinch w/ an Oriental cutie?
Yes..your going to ban long guns because of some crazy school shooter but let them have shotgun..crazy mass shooter are most always up close..shotguns are the up close weapon
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
it is no more her business which firearm I choose to buy than it is which religion I choose to practice.
Where’s that YouTube bid of women firing a 12ga for the first time?
