Yesterday, California Senator Dianne Feinstein declared she would “return to Congress to reintroduce ‘an updated assault weapons bill’.” Said Feinstein:
“Weapons of war do not belong on our streets, in our classrooms, in our schools or in our movie theatres.”
Has anybody seen fully-armed military personnel hanging out in schools and movie theaters?
Feinstein is “one of the most vocal proponents of gun control on Capitol Hill.” The truth is that gun control equates with civilian disarmament. The graph below includes CDC gun ownership survey data for the years 2001 and 2002, plus Brady Campaign grading data for those years. States Brady graded A (best) due to the most gun control laws also have the lowest gun ownership rates. States Brady considered the “worst” (least gun control) had the highest gun ownership rates.
Another inconvenient truth for Feinstein is that states with the lowest gun ownership rates (most gun control) have the highest homicide rates.
Feinstein wants defenseless women to be raped, robbed, and murdered. Women like Martha Lewis, who was forced to shoot an intruder at 3AM. After kicking down her door, he started up the stairs even though he saw she was armed. Lewis said:
“There‘s so much talk about banning guns and gun control but they’re for protection. There’s no way that I could have fought him off.”
Women like 66-year-old Rosa Myles, who needs a walker to get around. She was saying her nightly prayers just before midnight when she heard noise “coming from the back of the home.”
Suddenly, a tall man lunged with a knife at her, grabbing her hand. Unable to move around very well and using a walker, Myles was able to put up little resistance. He began pushing her around, demanding jewelry and money.
After being “tortured,” he took her to her bedroom where she kept money. She was able to retrieve a handgun and shoot him while he was counting cash.
Dianne Feinstein hasn’t a clue about how average Americans like these women live. With a net worth of about $70 million, Feinstein can afford to live next to “Billionaire’s Row” in San Francisco, overlooking Presidio Park.
