On Thursday Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) held a full committee meeting to vote on a bipartisan measure that is claimed to curb illegal gun trafficking and purchasing, but is more akin to “thought legislation” for those purchasing firearms. During that meeting, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) advocated for the removal of veteran’s rights to keep and bear arms by stating, “find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon.”
She then completely lied about the ability of a “bump stock,” which she called a “slide stock,” claiming that it altered an AR-15 to go from semi-automatic to fully automatic. It does no such thing. The trigger is reset every time the stock “bumps.” In fact, you can get the same effect with any semi-automatic firearms by using your thumb and your belt loop. Does the Senator from California want to ban belt loops?
She claims that she is concerned because calls her come into her office as if more gun control is “some wild eyed scheme.”
“It is not,” she affirmed, though we all know that is exactly what it is.
