Apparently the gun control debate is no longer about the Constitution and the 2nd amendment, it’s about your personal pleasure and the general welfare, according to Senator Dianne Feinstein:

I don’t really expect to agree with much that Mr. LaPierre says. Of course, he has the right to say it, and I have the right to do this.

I’ve tried to do it carefully. We have 22 co-sponsors. I recognize it’s an uphill battle. But I also know that these events are going to continue and America has to step up. The mothers, the women, the men of America have to make a decision as to whether their personal pleasure is more important than the general welfare.

Grievance killers look for these weapons. These weapons are easy to obtain. There are no background checks. You can buy them out of a back of a car, at a gun show. America’s laws are virtually nonexistent and, therefore, I think this is a good bill.

I intend to fight. I did it once before. If it doesn’t get done right now, be assured I will continue to press the case.

    Oh, so now we’re going to use the “general welfare” clause to abolish the Second Amendment? Outstanding.

    Perhaps we can use the same “general welfare” clause to throw out every single last Senator and Representative and start over.

      Well I guess the bright side is she didn’t evoke the ‘Good and Plenty’ Clause…

    • LibLoather

      The Left tries to use the 14th Amendment every time they don’t get their way. Feinstein is blowing smoke out of her ass on orders from the Obama propaganda machine.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/KYTC7EGQASGOTQYPY2KPC4XCZY Don

      Good point Stupid Republic “to throw out every single last Senator and Representative and start over.” A very good start would be to defeat the 22 co-sponsors that signed along with this nutjob. If any of these morons are still in office after their next election, we deserve everything we get from these loons. 2010 AGAIN! That election was the biggest swing in Congress in decades. We have to keep flushing this scum or they will destroy our way of life.

      • Pat

        I have a REAL problem with congress and their own set(s) of rules – they aren’t included under obamacare, get paid for life, etc. – they have no “skin” in the game…..

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Amen to that!

    • clockwindingdown

      Regarding her argument of “personal pleasure”, where was Feinstein on the healthcare bill and providing contraception? Want to talk about personal pleasure…

      Oh the hypocrisy of the left is never ending. Not only that but these false arguments having nothing to do with the subject at hand or the reason there is such rights in the first place.

      The mere fact she wants to do away or drastically contract the 2nd Amendment goes to show our founders were correct in by creating the 2nd Amendment in the first place.

      Anyone out to protect me from myself is not only lying to me but is in fact trying to give themselves more control over me. That she brings up this Bolshevik line of thinking should be enough for treason charges to be filed and her to find herself in jail. Let a lone the fact this isn’t her first time in the back seat after the dance. That we have come this far as a nation without such charges filed shows how far off track we have veered.

      Why people are not calling her and others that support her patriotism into question is beyond me. She should be spending her time trying to defend herself not trying to subvert our constitution, the one she swore an oath to up hold. Where are the protest, where are the charges, why is she not in hiding for unpatriotic acts?

        excellent

Are will still close to the Sandy Hook tragedy that we are willing to do anything, no matter how stupid or in conflict with our basic liberties or demonstrably not going to prevent the same tragedy from occurring again, just to say we did “something.” Over time, slowly, right by right, we are asking our government to restrict our Liberty in the pursuit of Safety and Happiness.

  • Rshill7

    I wish this “lady” would kiss me…right in the tail-bone.

    It’s “personal pleasure” to buy and own a weapon for self-preservation? If I can’t protect my family, who will?

    It ain’t pleasure you ugly commie. It’s responsibility.

    If you wanted to promote general welfare, you would make gun ownership mandatory, you stupid pile of…history-bereft genocide.

    Guess who I also want to try and protect my family from? You.

  • Conniption Fitz

    No, personal defense is our priority, not pleasure.

    Pleasure at taxpayer expense is the mark of your side, Democrat Senator (professional leftist propagandist) Feinstein.

    Senator Menendez, President Obama and Democrat Poster Girl Sandra Fluke are excellent examples.

  • AustindPowers

    That’s not the question at all… it’s not even a question of individual welfare vs general welfare… it’s a question of individual liberty vs the general welfare, and as soon as you realize that, you see that there is no general welfare without individual liberty.

  • marketcomp

    You know this statement is typical of these twisted democrats, “it’s about your personal pleasure and the general welfare”, according to Senator Dianne Feinstein. Do democrats really think we are all Menendez now! They are so sick and perverted that it permeates their every being. The 2nd Amendment in the Constitution is about protection of self and protection against a tyrannical Governement. Not personal pleasure! This entire gun debate was contribed becasue of Sandy Hook elementary school so how is that then translated to, “personal pleasure”! These have got to be the sickest and most stupid people people on the fact of the earth, right now!

  • bjohnson55

    This has to rank at the top of one of the stupidest statements made by one human being.

  • Patriot077

    Dear Ms. Feinstein,

    It is my personal pleasure to advise you that you and your 22 co-sponsors have picked the wrong fight.

    The general welfare of the individuals who are law abiding citizens of these United States depends upon the literal reading of the Second Amendment. What part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand?

    We.The.People.Understand.Every.Word. as well as the founders’ reasons for including it in our Bill of Rights.

    If you really wanted to fight violence you would encourage governors to address mental illness treatment and appropriate sentencing for violent criminals within their states.

    p.s. It would behoove you and your like minded pals to quit trying to pass off fraudulent data in support of your spurious attempts to restrict our liberty and personal safety. Whether you like it or not, the Constitution is still the law of the land.

    A law abiding, Constitution loving citizen of the United States of America

      Liberalism is a progressive mental disease that gets more severe with age. Look at Bloomberg, Mayor of New York. With all the unbelievabler problems he has to deal with, the top of his list is banning 2 liter colas with pizza delivery. Not a sane person in this world would deny that is not complete insanity. The sad part is they only get worse.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Yep, it is. And you’re right.

  • Bunjy

    What is wrong with these people? It’s not like she’s talking about banning vibrators because they pose a danger of electrocution. (That would probably not survive constitutional scrutiny, right of privacy that has no real constitutional basis, you know. . .. *eyeroll). She’s talking about infringing a specifically enumerated human right that is clearly protected by the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution. From the Republicans-crickets. Man, my blood pressure can’t take much more of this tripe.

          Oh, yes. What is really frustrating is that they are concentrated in the cities for the most part, and yet have been controlling the direction the country is going.

          Just last Saturday my wife and I went to a hamburger joint we love about twenty miles north of Seattle, and I commented to a laugh that we were back in the USA. That’s just how concentrated they seem to be. I think Washington state is still 95%+ conservative…but Seattle is determining statewide elections. Plenty of imbeciles in a few dozen major population centers, it seems. Most frustrating. Someone from California made a similar comment. What can we do about it?

    This woman really needs to check the laws that are already on the books. When you purchase a weapon the dealer always runs an FBI check on the individual prior to authorizing the sale. At gun shows, every person there that is selling a weapon is an FFL (Federal Firearms License) dealer. If you go through a concealed carry class or SDA as it is known in Oklahoma (Self Defense Act), you go through an OSBI background check before you can receive your permit. If you are wanting to buy a Class III permitted item, you go through an ATF & E background check before you can get your approval stamp. This whole new background check they are talking about is already being done every where I know so I am more than little concerned what it is they are really talking about when they say Back Ground Checks – very disconcerting to say the least.

  • armyvet10

    Mrs. Feinstein, I disagree with your assumption. The Declaration of Independence contained in the Constitution, a document that you and all other politicians swore to uphold and defend, disagrees with you as well. Greater thinkers and writers brought forth this document to inspire a people and give birth to the greatest nation on Earth. I’m sure the forefathers would disagree with you as well.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

    Keep being stupid and you could be unemployed and ran out of town.

    • Patriot077

      Don’t you just love the ring of the words “consent of the governed”?

      • armyvet10

        Yes I do. The further one reads the Declaration of Independence, one can clearly see why the Forefathers put the Bill of Rights together and why these Bill of Rights are so important. This includes the 2nd Amendment. The grievances registered against King George plainly exposes why the “Right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed upon” makes so much sense. Mrs. Feinstein and other liberals will never understand.

        • Patriot077

          I think they understand all right. They just think they are superior.

    She seems to think that gun ownership is like owning golf clubs. Just a sport don’t ya’ know. These elite pigs are just not capable of understanding that the 2nd amendment is about staying alive and free.

I have to defend against her and all the rest of the demented freedom destroyers in our government.

    Impeach her and the 22 she rode in on! It’s absolutely none of her business what Americans purchase. Her bill is a simple infringement of the Second Amendment and she has violated her oath of office by proposing it. If I lived in California I would be calling for her impeachment….or recall.

    She calls it “personal pleasure” to own a firearm instead of what it is, which is personal defense. Yet even if it was strictly FOR pleasure, it would still be elevated above her “general welfare” clause. That is why the Constitution was written….it was FOR THE INDIVIDUAL!

    ” America’s laws are virtually nonexistent and, therefore, I think this is a good bill.” A little off topic perhaps, laws are not virtually nonexistent, they are literally nonexistent when the topic is illegal immigration, aka, criminal immigrants, aka (newest euphemism) English learners. The people that we elected to represent US allowed Mexico, et al, to export their poorest, least educated, most disgruntled constituency to the USA? Señora Feinstein, you possess the unmitigated audacity to question the very clear 2nd Amendment? Really, you do? CA saw clear (ok, it took 40 yrs) in the folly of Pete Stark and kicked him to the curb, maybe they can see clearly enough to do the same with this antedulivian relic.

    Diane Feinstein and Barack Obama are the worst types of liars. The Obama administration has been caught sending fictitious tweets to congressmen on gun control. Only problem is the people who tweeted this barf don’t exist. That is sort of like a polling official in Ohio who voted six times for Obama. It is embarrassing to watch his daily melodrama and his Greek tragedies. There is no need for gun control but their is a serious need for Obama control.

    And so if she rids the Constitution of the 2nd Amendment, which one goes next? Because as we know, the Left never stops, is never satisfied, is always on the relentless march to rob us of our individual freedoms. The Bill of Rights is just so 18th century, so old, so dead white guy.

    The hypocrisy of Obama, Bloomberg, Feinstien and others from the Left

    Mayor Bloomberg has a small cadre of hired hands who are near and with him literally 24 hours a day. They are armed, all the time, and they are paid to worry about these things so he doesn’t have to.

    Likewise, President Obama has a literal army of trained, armed soldiers in the form of parts of the military and an entire division of officers (The Secret Service) who’s job it is, once again, to make this not his problem for both him and his entire family. Michelle and his children do not have to concern themselves about these issues because there are literally over a thousand others who are paid to take that responsibility — up to and including eating a bullet in their place.

    “I don’t really expect to agree with much that Mr. LaPierre says. Of course, he has the right to say it, and I have the right to do this.”

    I’m just surprised that she still says he has the “right” to say what he wants to say. If she doesn’t like the Second Amendment, what’s to stop her from not liking the First and passing laws against that one too? The answer is, nothing. This just shows how much power these miscreants want. I think it’s amazing that they think they can pick and choose which Amendments we can keep or lose. Generations of Americans gave their lives to protect these rights, all of them, and it’s not up to jerks like this to just take our rights away from us. If we don’t have the Constitution, gang, we have a lot of nothing. This is not negotiable. We must stand against these tyrants any way we can. It’s the least we can do for all the many patriots that came before us.

Then, how much longer will it be before the Congress passes a law for the citizens to surrender their firearms that Finestein’s law currently exempts. While there are about 2200 exempted firearms under Finestein’s current Legislation, the gun-grab is here if this law passes in any form.

    She wants these semi-auto firearms non-transferable upon death of its owner, and then to be forfeited to the government. NFA of 1934 dont even require that!!

    It is amusing, at least to me, that the most promising state in our Union, turned out to be what it is today. California was the engine of America’s future. Agriculture, Aerospace, Solar, Progressives. Wait. Progressives were not originally the plan that California had in mind. Never mind. They are here now, and they have taken over one the greatest states in our union.

    When most people think of California, they think of movies. Shows the lack of knowledge, of the average American. In spite of the movie industry, California is one of the most productive agricultural regions on the planet. Why is that, you ask? Well, its the climate, basically. California has two growing seasons. The first one, and then the second one, right after the first one. Sounds crazy, I know. But that’s the difference between California and Wisconsin.

    You like strawberries? California supplies the entire world with strawberries. You live in France? And you like strawberries? Those strawberries on your crepes, came from California.

    Okay, so where am I going, with this current rabbit trail?

    I guess where I am going, is how easily Communism can destroy Creativity. The great State of California used to be one of the most productive States in our Union. It is no more. They are now bankrupt. They chased away the golden egg of Aviation and Aircraft Production. They taxed it to death. All that Industry now resides in Georgia and Mississippi. They are glad to have it.

    California is left with Hollywood, and massive debt, that they have no hope of repaying. Because California has become yet another, “Welfare State.” They are supporting so much welfare and free programs, for people who don’t want to work, that they simply cannot generate enough income to pay for it. You think Obama is an Idiot? Jerry Brown could teach him things about being an Idiot he never thought of.

    Add the millions of Illegals who call California home. They pay their own way, right? I’ll give you a moment to absorb that.

    California is a model of what this entire country is becoming, faster than we realize. You can ignore it all you want. That is your prerogative. If you do choose to ignore it, then you ignore it, at your peril. It is bad enough that you ignore it at your peril, but when you ignore it at my peril, it somehow becomes personal.

    “Americans must decide if personal pleasure is more important than general welfare”. General welfare is much more important and to that end the Keeping and Bearing of arms by individual American Citizens, is paramount to the “General welfare” and survival of our Republic, by not interfering with our God Given Second Amendment Rights!

  • Kordane

    Quote: “The mothers, the women, the men of America have to make a decision as to whether their personal pleasure is more important than the general welfare

    She’s going ahead with her gun controls no matter what people decide. So no, the mothers, the women and the men of America do NOT get to make that “decision”.

    But hey, you hear her, folks? You have to decide between your unalienable individual right to the pursuit of happiness…. and the general welfare. She clearly thinks the former should be violated for the latter, even though it’s “unalienable” and should never ever be violated, no matter what.

    The “general welfare” only means those things which benefit everyone – Not just benefit one group at the expense of another group.

    “I don’t really expect to agree with much that Mr. LaPierre says. Of course, he has the right to say it, and I have the right to do this.”

    According to who or what? What “power” grants Mr. LaPierre the “right” to say what he says?

    The First Amendment to the Constitution?

    Then if the First Amendment grants Mr. LaPierre the right to SAY what he wants to say, why then does the 2nd Amendment not grant him the right to bear arms as he chooses?

    She’s cherry picking and using the Constitution to impose her own will upon the people of the United States and is granting powers to herself where none exists in law.

    I say again, I would like for Ms Feinstein, and all other gun confiscation advocates (let’s stop using their term: “gun control”) to look into the camera and explain to the American people what power grants her the right to ignore the Constitution of the United States and arbitrarily choose which parts to obey and which to censor.

    She needs to tell us who appointed her God to tell me that although I have a “right” to speak, I have no right to defend myself with a weapon of equal deterrence to other modern threats.

  • JungleCogs

    Democrats always want to turn their wants into a ‘values’ argument. But values are subjective; a Constitutional right is not. Those of us who support Liberty and Freedom often make the mistake of getting sucked-in trying to play the Democrat’s ‘values’ game.

    If we were a Democracy that would matter; but we’re not, we are a Constitutional Republic. When it comes to Constitutional issues the majority does not automatically rule as they would in a Democracy. Feinstein can go pound sand.

Having suchs natural rights, we also have the NATURAL righ to defend those rights, and here is the grounds of such right. Any attempt to limit this right is an attempt to deny our most sacred natural right and enslave us, and leaving us at the mercy of all the predators of this world. This right is not given to us by the 2nd Ammendment, the 2nd simply codifies in law what is ours by NATURE, namely, the RIGHT to defend ourselves against agression, by a burglar, or any other such theat, including all the vermin who tray to disarm us and reduce us to prey of all the predators in this world, which includes tyrannical politicians.

    Here are the facts: There are bad guys out there and I do NOT consider the necessity to defend either myself and family from them, or any potentially out of control government, in any respect to be a ‘personal pleasure’. It factors down to more of human right, borne of oppression, abuse and disrespect. In this light, history has repeatedly demonstrated that guns in the hands of responsible citizens are not the problem. But a disarmed, ill informed public can fall prey to many evils, for they inevitably seek to exploit the vulnerable We have a Constitution in place. It frames the law of the land and guarantees certain inalienable human rights. Let us not ignore it or let it be compromised.
