A Joyful Day for Dianne Feinstein

Dianne Feinstein may be best known for her fanatical opposition to our constitutional right to bear arms. She has said that if Democrats had the votes, she would advocate confiscating every privately owned gun in America, never mind that this would set off a second civil war.

Feinstein sat next to Donald Trump at yesterday’s bipartisan meeting devoted to complying with the liberal media and reacting to Parkland by restricting gun rights. At one point, as The Federalist notes, she loved what she was hearing so much that she “jumped several inches up from her seat and affectionately jabbed President Trump with her right arm.” Watch in horror:

That wasn’t even the worst of it:

Trump repeatedly suggested guns just be taken from citizens if officials felt they should, even if Americans had not violated any laws.

“The police saw that he was a problem, they didn’t take any guns away,” said Trump about the Parkland shooter. “Now that could have been policing, but they should have taken them away anyway, whether they had the right or not.”

Later in the meeting, Vice President Pence attempted to walk those comments back, explaining the process of how states could take steps to confiscate guns from dangerous individuals that would go through the courts and observe due process. He was interrupted by his boss.

“Or Mike, take the firearms first and then go to court,” Trump interjected. “That’s another system.”

The name for that system is “tyranny.”

“Take the guns first, go through due process second,” the president added.

Confiscating guns without due process in blatant violation of our constitutional rights is a shocking proposition, coming from the President, but not a surprising one. He wanted to do the same thing after the Muslim terror attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Ted Cruz supporters were told that it doesn’t matter that Trump is not a conservative (although he sporadically plays one on TV), because he would “get things done” — as if it didn’t matter what kind of things.
