Progressive democrats like being able to arm and protect themselves. They just don’t want to afford you, the little people, the same opportunity. They know there are dangerous criminals out there in the world. They understand that to leave oneself, or one’s children, vulnerable to the deranged lunatics of the world is insane.
Every time a madman with a gun takes out multiple lives the cries for more gun control get louder. They don’t talk about how Hollywood glorifies violence on a regular basis, or how the media turns these violent killers into heroes for their fellow deranged lunatics while turning the grieving of those left behind into reality shows. They turn a blind eye to the calls for more violence and bloodshed from their side. They forget how it was their side that made sure mentally ill people don’t receive the treatment and supervision they need. They don’t even get the definitions straight when it comes to what kind of guns they want to ban, but we’re supposed to sit back and let them re-write the Second Amendment?
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t know why the mother of that horrid little creep in Newtown taught him how to shoot when she was aware of his mental illness. I don’t know why she didn’t lock up the weapons she obtained legally, in a state with strict gun control laws, so he couldn’t get his hands on them. We do need to talk about that. But how do we have a conversation with people calling for our deaths because they disagree with us? How do we negotiate with complete hypocrites like Senator Dianne Feinstein, who testified in 1995 that she armed herself because of threats, but now she wants to disarm the rest of us?
On April 27, 1995, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) spoke at the US Senate hearing on terrorism shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing.
During the hearing, she referenced her concealed carry permit and how she carried a gun with her in the 1970′s, citing the urge to arm yourself for protection- in her case from threats.
“I know the sense of helplessness that people feel. I know the urge to arm yourself because that’s what I did. I was trained in firearms. I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon and I made the determination if somebody was going to try and take me out, I was going to take them with me.”
This CCW permit was obtained in San Francisco, CA which would make it one of the only permits- if not the only such permit- at the time in the early 1970′s.
Now, after recent shooting tragedies, Feinstein is making another push for tighter gun control. She is widely known as one of the biggest anti-gun and anti-NRA advocates in Washington.
There’s video at the link of Feinstein testifying. She’s just another “Do as I say, not as I do” liberal.
Feinstein isn’t the only hypocrite. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid carries a gun everywhere he goes, or at least he used to. President Obama has the heavily armed Secret Service protecting him and his family. Most celebrities employ armed body guards while they call for disarming the rest of us. Are these the people we want regulating guns for the rest of us?
I would be willing to have a conversation about gun regulation if not for these hypocrites who really don’t care about making anybody safer. How many times in the past four years have you heard a national democrat talk about the murder rate in Chicago?
Oh, and of course, we aren’t hearing anything about how many guns the Obama administration allowed to walk into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

Update: If all of the above isn’t bad enough, Obama is making Joe Biden his go-to guy on gun control. By the time he’s done, the criminals will be the only ones with guns.
