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.

On tips from Troy and Varla.

    Right out of Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union. Or communist China or North Korea.

    Exactly…

    Just wonder what and when the other shoe drop is going to be.

    “A well regulated (disciplined) militia (citizenry), being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms [shall not] be infringed (to limit, or to undermine).”

    Fellow Americans, what Mr. Trump is doing is treacherous! Rather than allow the individual states in this Union to discipline (ie: teach) its citizens in the use of the firearm, the current administration is appeasing the Democrats by demonizing a semi-auto rifle.

    If he ends up banning the AR-15 (a semi-auto), who knows? He may end up banning ALL that are semi-auto!

  5. Anonymous says:

    Tyranny, Democrats love the sound of that.

  6. Angel says:

    I hate having to defend Trump here, but “jawboning” an issue is one way of diffusing it. There are two types of Karate – Hard Karate, where you stand firm and you and your opponent bash each other’s brains out, and Soft Karate, where you pull your onrushing opponent toward you, keeping them off-balance until you deliver the final blow. While the Dems are becoming more and more hard leftists, they are turning off a lot of moderate left-leaning voters. Bringing those voters into the Republican fold does make the Party more liberal, but it destroys the Dems.

    I understand the tendency to say screw it, I’m going down fighting for my conservative values. But we need to face reality. Over half the country (Dems + 3 million CA illegals) will vote for a hard leftist president, e.g., Hillary or Bernie. We need to flip some of these people to our side in order for our constitutional republic to survive. Trump understands this, and this is what he is trying to do.

  7. Swordie says:

    “…shall not be infringed.”

  8. TrojanMan says:

    If they take the gun first there is NO reason for due process because due process has already been violated. The whole point of due process is to take legal channels before your rights can be stripped or suspended.

  9. GhostRider2001 says:

    The two words just go together naturally.

  10. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    I’ve tried to take a pragmatic view of Trump, knowing he wouldn’t be perfect and enjoying the good he has done (and he has done some good). But first he threatens an illegal executive order on bump stocks (I personally don’t care about bump stocks in particular, but they are not illegal and therefore the POTUS does not have the legal authority to ban them by fiat). Now, he’s on board with depriving people of constitutionally protected civil liberties without the accused having a chance to defend themselves in court, and a ban on a class of common firearms. The House won’t pass such bills for sure, and the Senate probably won’t. But after 2018? Who knows.

    Bottom line, this moves me out of the more neutral camp on Trump.

  11. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    I’ve generally thought like this. But I’m starting to think that if we keep being satisfied with stall tactics and half measures, the Republic will fall in the long run anyway. If we stared making faster progress in prying education away from the leftists, I might be more hopeful, but I fear it might be too late already on that front.

  12. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    I don’t think many of us Cruz backers were fooled by that.

  13. swimologist says:

    He has since Tweet-walked-back his previous comments this morning.

  14. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    Well, hopefully I have fallen into the trap of listening to what Trump says, then, instead of waiting to see what he actually does.

  15. swimologist says:

    She was literally mimicking the Jewish “Happy Merchant” meme.

  16. magic1114 says:

    I’m hoping he was just buying time by getting Frankenfeinstein worked up like that. I’m sure he knows damned well that what he was suggesting wouldn’t work and wanted the Democraps to stand down a bit from their dizzying panic… You know how the Democraps are, they’ll accept and news that’s good for their agenda no matter how much bullshit there is…

  17. magic1114 says:

    He’s playing politics to distract the monkey morons… He’s just throwing them a few peanuts.

  18. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    I sure hope you’re right.

  19. Dan Northrup says:

    “Protect and defend” was part of the oath. Trumps is not good at oaths.

  20. ramrodd says:

    Mike Pence, who was claiming the DC could somehow give help to local law
    enforcement and families in taking weapons from people considered “a danger to
    others or themselves,” the president spoke up and completely went anti-Constitutional.

    “I like taking the guns early like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida … to go to court would have taken a long time,” Trump said at a meeting with lawmakers on school safety and gun violence. “Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

    No, Mr. Trump. You have due process of law, Sir. Then, and only then, may you lawfully deny rights. Trump took an oath to uphold this part of the Constitution.

    He also added, “A lot of people are saying ‘oh you shouldn’t be saying that,’ but I don’t want mentally ill people having guns.” (right out of the Soviet playbook)

    It’s not beautiful. It’s criminal. It’s anti-American. It’s downright treasonous, and they all know it, but people will continue to support it because they have been listening to kids who are simply useful idiots being put to the forefront to emotionally propagandize the American people about guns.

    Trump vs. Due Process

    This is not only a really, really bad idea, it’s a totally unconstitutional one on several fronts.

    The man who claimed, “The eight-year assault on your Second
    Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end,” to the NRA, and added, “You have a true friend and champion in the White House” is now attacking the very rights protected in that Amendment, as well as the rights protected in the Fifth Amendment head on.

    On Wednesday, Trump took a step further, not only attacking the Second
    Amendment, but also the Fifth in the process.

    Trump threw his support behind another Manchin-Toomey bill, and we know both of those guys suffered a humiliating defeat under Obama for their gun grabbing legislation.

  22. Bill589 says:

    RINOs talk conservative, vote conservative on small things, and then when they are most needed say, ‘Vote your conscience’ risking giving us a President Hillary.
    ‘I will support the nominee’ was a Cruz lie.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice, shame on me.
    It will be a long time, if ever, that I can trust Cruz again.

  23. ramrodd says:

    Ann Coulter issuing a dire warning to the American people about universal background checks, a provision currently being touted by gun control advocates. Rather than embracing the proposal, Coulter warned that it could lead to “universal confiscation” and, ultimately, “universal extermination” of firearms.
    It is here that Coulter noted that U.S. citizens could fall victim to a slippery slope of gun control regulations, inevitably culminating in a loss of the right to bear arms.
    “Universal background check means universal registration. Universal registration means universal confiscation, universal extermination,” she continued. “That’s how it goes in history. Do not fall for universal background checks.”
    “This is a lie they are telling you in order to prevent Americans from self-defense, from protecting themselves so that only the government has a monopoly on guns,” she said of other claims against guns being perpetuated in media.

    Don’t ‘Fix NICS,’ Trash It | Breitbart

    Sadly, many of those same Republicans are joining with Democrats to bring up gun control in the form of supposed “NICS Fix” bills.

    Something should be done about NICS. It should be sent to the trash bin of
    history, along with every other prior restraint on the right to keep and bear
    arms.

    This is not good news because anything short of repealing the National
    Instant Check System (NICS) is the wrong move, both practically and in
    principle.
    Most agree that NICS is a flawed system, but what is overlooked is that it
    is actually used to deny gun rights to honest citizens.
    If a bad guy is denied a firearm, he or she is not physically prevented from
    getting a gun. Nothing is stopping someone with malicious intentions from
    stealing firearms or buying on the street.

  25. ramrodd says:

    The attempts to “fix NICS” will at best be redundant, and at worse make the
    system more problematic.

    NICS is redundant in the first place. Ever since America’s founding, there
    has been a system for keeping bad guys from getting guns—due process. The Fifth (and later Fourteenth) Amendments ensure that the government can take away rights through a fair judicial
    General to remove erroneously submitted names within 60 days. Of course, the Brady Law itself ALREADY requires the prompt correction of erroneous records—but this provision has been deliberately ignored for over two decades.

  26. ramrodd says:

    Given that there are no sanctions in the bill which can be applied against anyone in the Justice Department for non-compliance, this supposed “protection” is not worth the paper it is written on.

    NICS background checks are a bad idea for anyone claiming to cherish constitutional rights. The whole idea of the government screening citizens before exercising a constitutional right goes against the values America’s Founders tried to protect.

  27. MAS says:

    Wait and see, President Trump has priors for talking before thinking and playing Democrats too. Can’t believe I’m saying this as I’ve always been expecting a hard left turn from him but patience folks…

  28. MAS says:

    NICS is used by law enforcement for criminal background checks etc. Perhaps limit it but trashing it entirely would be a bad mistake. It’s how we know bad guys visiting from other states on contacting them…

    it’s backed up by the big lie that the feds are supposed to erase the record of a check after a certain period (60 days I believe). In point of fact they’ve been caught out again and again storing the records.

    Trump is now showing his true colors.

    They seem to have forgotten what the phrase “shall NOT be infringed”, means!

    Told one of our local LEO’s the other day, its easier for me to get a gun on the streets than it is for him to walk into a gun store and buy one!

    He just kinda’ gave me that ‘look’!

  44. Just Kell says:

    No matter what they do, they’re NEVER going to stop bad guys from getting guns! What they don’t seem to get is leaving us defenseless against those bad guys with guns isn’t going to work, even more!
    They can’t legislates an individuals natural born instincts!
    When I leave the house I KNOW 1 thing…I AM going to do my very best to come back home tonight!
    PERIOD!
    (they don’t a say in the matter!)
    Fuck ’em!

  45. Just Kell says:

    The “govt.” has already stated at the Supreme Court that it (police) doesn’t have the responsibility to protect us, and the Court agreed!
    Guess who that leaves this decision up to, now? The very same person whose decision its always been…
    ME!
    Its not a right given to us by men, its an instinct born in us of from God!
    Y’all go on ahead and try to take it, ok?

  46. Just Kell says:

    I am, though!

    And no ones thought to assign an end date to it!

  47. Just Kell says:

    There is already in place a legal process for the “temporary suspension of ones rights through an “emergency CTPO (civil temp protection order) hearing, though a FORMAL (physical) hearing HAS TO occur within 48 to 72 hrs. of the “temporary” orders issuance!
    Ohio, anyway!
    The point they miss is its not their business to know who has what, where or why! UNLESS that individual is proven incapable of safely handling firearms, they have no business in it!
    If they won’t protect us, which is THE primary purpose of ANY govt., then the people protect and defend themselves!
    Again, HOW do they legislate instinct?

  48. Just Kell says:

    I think he does this stuff to tweak the left-tards!
    Lives in most of their heads for free, anyway, may as well have some fun with it, right?
