Grabbers Jump the Gun

Feinstein's renewed gun control push.

May 27, 2014

Six were murdered in California this weekend and seven others wounded by a severely disturbed young man. Half of the victims were stabbed; the others were shot. He used a legally purchased handgun and had only 10-round magazines (41 of them). It took no time at all for gun grabbers to call for action. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said, “We must ask ourselves if an individual whose family called police with concerns about mental health, who is receiving therapy and who has had several run-ins with police should be allowed to own multiple firearms and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.” Hindsight is 20/20, but the murderer passed a background check and even talked to police before his rampage – they found nothing wrong. But that’s not Feinstein’s point, as even she went on to admit [emphasis added]: “When anyone, no matter their mental health or history, can so easily obtain any gun they want and as many as they want, we must recognize a problem. … Shame on us for allowing this to continue.”
