The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Dianne Feinstein’s not really that dumb… is she?

U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein sweeps a room full of her supporters with a magazine in, safety off, chamber closed, and finger on the trigger of an AK-47, in an earlier photo-op.

One would think that if you’ve spent a significant portion of your career attempting to ban something, that at least a little knowledge would somehow wash over you, such as the correct names for certain type of firearms and common firearm parts.

A reader emailed me to state that Senator Dianne Feinstein pointed at a picture of an AR-15 rifle during a Senate hearing today and called the rifle’s handguard a “barrel shroud.”

She did this, apparently, after first calling the firearm a “semi-automatic assault rifle,” which is a self-contradicting statement.

She does know that she is on television and that people are aware of how ignorant she is, does she not?

    Ignorance is temporary , STUPIDITY is permanent.
    Besides being EVIL , she is incredibly stupid or are we if we take it?

    Yes and No, they drank the Kool-aid and now don’t know/can’t know how dumb they really are. We have a really awful Political Class in California, in-bred and convinced without reason of their superiority simply because they grew-up (or moved-) in a Gerrymandered One-Party state where Republicans have been demonized and marginalized from the outset by a partisan Press and their own bad-actors in the Country-Club set.
    Living in a protected, Gerrymander bubble, they are hot-house flowers who haven’t had an original, non-linear, non-Marxist thought in decades. They have never been seriously challenged in any way except for adherence to party Dogma – and some of the various oddball Democrat ritual election-flagellation Kabuki, like the Circular Firing Squad method they use to choose/baptize their next delegate…
    Without a challenge of ideas they are soft-headed and given the grade-inflation in low-quality schools taught by the lowest achieving teachers, they have learned nothing but their own over-stimulated self-worth, and are unable to evaluate opinions that differ from their own prejudices.
    California Uber alles!

    These are word-people not things-people, so they act very silly and stupid around things.

    Even if she had a gun for personal protection, it’s clear she’s never spent much time actually shooting it. Or she’d never behave in such an asinine way.

    Deep, deep Ruling Class ignorance.

    NO part of the Constitution is malleable, NO part of the Constitution is pliable or partially enforceable. It is ALL as the Founders intended…simple and straightforward so even the Feinsteins could understand…the Founders wrote it so it could NOT be malleable or changed.

    That being said, and a given that she has at least 2 or more neurons exchanging electricity, (although not as smart as Super-Genius Clueless Joe), she has to on some level know she is trying to modify said Constitution.

    Even if you ascribe to the “Living, breathing document” point of view…any common sense interpretation of the Constitution can only be add-on modifications, NOT alterations of the original document per the ammendments.

    Therefore, does that not make this “Carrie Nation” wannabe, besides evil, a traitor? Is not anyone who tries to modify the Constitution a traitor?

    Every dictator and/or traitor is always dealt with by the population directly…think Ceausesu, Mussolini. The people had had enough.

    Most of the anti-gun people and the MSM don’t know that she is wrong and do not care. I continually see the members of the media calling an AR-15 an ‘assault rifle. She would like to ban all semi-automatic weapons as would Obama.

    And who would be affected by this…the legal, law-abiding gun owners. No new gun law will stop the criminals.

  7. Ri says:

    It’s NOT an AR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And yes, she really is. I’m surprised one of the officers didn’t take her down to stop her. Obviously no one in the area was a gun owner, because we all know 1. It’s always loaded. 2. Always keep every weapon pointed in a safe direction. 3. Never point it at anything you are not willing and ready to destroy. 4. Never put your finger on the trigger until you have acquired your target in the sights.

    To bad she didn’t kill everyone in the room. Wouldn’t that have made a great optic for the propaganda arm of the insane, regressive commiecratic party. She’s an insane, regressive commiecrat. Stupid goes without saying.

    • lyle says:

      Exactly what I was thinking: Too bad this bint didn’t squeeze off a few ADs. Better if no one got hurt but the “optics” as you say would have been priceless.

    Feinstein is a hard sociopath like 95% of the moss covered elites in DC. In her mind, that incredibly microscopic space in her skull, she’s a frickin’ firearms expert. Telling her she’s ignorant would be like describing the color orange to a dog.

    As a favor to us all, can we please stop running photos of her every time she’s discussed in the news?

    Seriously. She’s about five minutes away from having to be viewed in the reflection of a bronze shield.

  10. Nina says:

    Yes, she’s really that dumb. Dangerously dumb. As is the Congresswoman standing with her

    I find it hypocritical that the Senate’s #1 pro abortion advocate is concerned about saving lives.

    But, but, but, but….Barbara Boxer and Cynthia McKinney always tell her she’s a genius!

    This afternoon MD’s Senate Democrats passed our NY-Lite gun control law. Tomorrow is the final hearing on the House version. On 2/6 we had 4000 who came to the Senate hearing; over 1200 signed up to speak. About 40 were given time to speak, including me. Since the Senate bill passed, I expect more than 4000 at the house hearing. there wil be an antigun rally. I hope the anti gunners don’t invade our space tomorrow. Tempers are probably short on the pro gun side just now. And the Democrats are trying to place more roadblocks in the way of us starting a petition drive to force a referendum on this law if it passes.
