San Francisco’s senior senator has apparently taken a sad psychiatric turn. Always questionably progressive, she’s now also apparently starting to suffer the effects of some sort of degenerative mental condition. Why else would the old girl say something like this?
The time has come, America, to step up and ban these weapons. The other very important part of this bill is to ban large capacity ammunition feeding devices, those that hold more than 10 rounds. We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.
Perhaps the poor dear is misremembering the Richard Connell short story she read in Collier’s Weekly in early 1924. This was apparently part of the same rant when she claimed George W. Bush created PTSD and asserted that all veterans were dangerously mentally ill, so maybe she was just in the middle of having a dissociative episode.
I remember being very sad when I first heard about President Reagan’s battle with Alzheimer’s, so I feel very sympathetic to the supporters of Senator Feinstein. Of course, that assumes they have the capacity to discern progressive political thought from dementia.
Perhaps they find her “inspiring.”
