Feinstein on gun control: Americans must decide if “personal pleasure is more important than general welfare”

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.
