Senator Dianne Feinstein hates our nation’s gun culture. She’s been as anti-gun as anyone else in Congress over the last few decades, but on Sunday she finally admitted the truth about her party’s anti-gun approach.
Speaking to NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday morning Feinstein was asked what laws could have prevented the shooting?
Feinstein was stumped.
“I don’t know. I would have to take a good look at that and really study it. I’m not sure there is any set of laws that could have prevented it,” she told Todd.
Also on Sunday morning she told CBS’ Face the Nation host John Dickerson that the Las Vegas shooter wouldn’t have been stopped by more gun laws. “He passed background checks registering for handguns and other weapons on multiple occasions,” the Senator admitted.
Feinstein is not a stupid woman. She’s been fighting against guns long enough to know the basic facts and to understand that the Democrat Party’s only real response to these incidents of violence is to outlaw guns. She also knows that this isn’t feasible, but it’s odd to hear her admit as much while others in her party continue to scream for more anti-gun legislation.
Also, if you think Feinstein is mellowing out on guns, you’re sadly mistaken, she’s still as anti-gun as ever.
You can hear her complain about out gun culture during her conversation with Chuck Todd where she whines about America being a “gun-happy” nation.
When Chuck Todd wonders about the “state” of the gun debate, Feinstein responds in true Eeyore fashion…
“The state is sad,” Feinstein said. “America is a gun-happy country.”
