Feinstein: All Vets Are Mentally Ill And Government Should Prevent Them From Owning Firearms

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

by Kurt Nimmo, InfoWars:

During the Senate Judiciary meeting today to markup a potpourri of bills designed to deny the American people their rights under the Second Amendment and disarm them, Senator Dianne Feinstein opposed an amendment to her so-called assault weapons ban legislation that would allow veterans to continue buying firearms the bill would outlaw. Feinstein basically said all veterans have PTSD and should have their Second Amendment stripped. In response to the amendment, she said the following:

…this adds an exemption of retired military. As I understand our bill, no issue has arose in this regard during the 10 years the expired ban was effect… and what we did in the other bill was exempt possession by the United States or a department or agency of the United States… that included active military. The problem with expanding this is that you know with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, it’s not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this. So you know I would be happy to sit down with you again and see if we could work something out but I think we have to — if you’re going to do this, find a way that veterans who are incapacitated for one reason or another mentally don’t have access to this kind of weapon.

      I have PTSD, and a veteran of the US Navy. However my disability does not result in being involved in any of these wars. I served my country two years before I had an injury while on active duty. Would this prevent me from having a firearm? My PTSD is the result of an abusive set of parents. How can this woman bring her beliefs to prove that ALL veterans should not have firearms? If someone were at risk for potential problems, they should have been fully checked out by BEFORE a firearm can be issued. Psychological exams are key when a soldier/sailor has had a traumatic experience while serving our country. These brave people put themselves on the line to defend our country, and now may not be able to defend themselves in the future? I am appalled at how our government has taken such drastic measures to ensure we have our Constitutional rights removed.

      • ashleyrobinson

        because she’s a tyrant that is attacking the constitution that every service member swore to defend? i am thinking she qualifies as a domestic enemy. i am thinking she sees herself as a demestic enemy to the constitution and she is naturally just trying to protect herself from people who actually take their oath seriously.

      • lindarosemary

        God bless all Vets. You have my undying appreciation. I come from a famkily of vets and I would trust a VET with a gun before I would trust her. She’s is one sick puppy. And guess what, what she said is SLANDER.

      You, Sir did not put your life on the line to defend your country. Your country has never been in any danger. You were manipulated and fed falsehoods so that you would believe there was an enemy.
      The only enemy is your government. You have to be mentally deficient to enlist to kill fellow humans that are unknown to you.

      • fuzzy696

        Agree…….all you youngsters thinking of joining the armed forces are not defending your country,you are terrorizing others.You are not hereos but murderers……think before you leap.Join the militia of your state because a war is coming and better to defend your family and friends where it counts.

          fuzzy (as in fuzzy lamebrain) you call our vets murderers….you are the sick individual and it’s people like you who don’t deserve to be protected. your sick opinion does not give you license to insult and accuse our military of being murderers.

      Half the population thinks the other half is crazy and should be put on pills. Apparently Feinstein is just dumb as a rock. This would then mean we are sending Military back into combat despite the fact that they are to dangerous to walk the streets in the US Armed. Well Sister let me tell you something, there are a lot of vets who are police officers and secret service who protect your dumbass.

        • Troubleshooter

          Maybe we need Drone Strikes all around for the Anti-Vets. Those who hold such opinions and make such statements are a threat to the national security of our country. The lies they tell could potentially discourage people from enlisting, thereby stripping our national defenses.

      Every American even the mentally ill should have the right to own a handgun. The vast majority of criminals are packing a handgun and unless we take them away all people should own and display their pistols.

    • clockman

      If it gets to be crunch time, I’d rather have a fellow armed vet at my back than any career politician. Any day, any time. HooRah.

    • justiceday

      I think this is a ridiculous statement. But you have to blame the guys who cry PTSD that are criminals and it has nothing to do with being military. The marines are the biggest offenders. A Marine raped a women in Orange County (he was a cop) and cried PTSD. A marine beat up a cab driver in NC, and cried PTSD. The marine in the site not only used PTSD but also said on facebook that his political view as “killing bodies.”

      These guys are what make the rest of you look bad and allow people like her to make comments.

    • Anonymous

      Feinstein is F——– Insane! These people need serious mental help, they are definitely suffering from some sort of brain trauma, and, obviously, shock treatment won’t work! She needs to gather up her communist, lesbian sycophants and move back her operations to San Francisco, and shack up together with her therapist for good!! I’ll be more than happy to lend her a high powered firearm, so she can do the rest of us a favor, and shoot herself in the head! Unfortunately, she probably won’t know how to load it, let alone take the safety off. Maybe we can all get the current admin to play a high stakes game of Russian Roulette with a full magazine. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?

        The problem is that few of you get it. Every time one of these zionist infiltrators (who has been revoted into office for DECADES- so WHO are really the stupid ones here??) pulls the crimnal schtick so consistent with their agenda and history, you all act as if this is just some lone, random, one-off occurrence. Despite it happens like clockwork.
        GET THEM ALL OUT OF HERE NOW or we’ll soon have nothing left

      All Bolsheviks such as Feinstein hate vets with firearms because vets are trained in the effective use of firearms.

    • Anonymous

      Well, what is this? Feinstein uber alles? Off with her head.

    • beta

      First off I can not stand Sen Feinstein, but this artical is missleading. You should watch before you post, just a suggetion.
      if you watch the video, you will see Sen Feinstine does not say that. She says that we need to make sure any vet that has PTSD or any other mental illness be exempt from the being able to own assault weapons. She does not suggest all vets are mentally ill. Sen. John Cornyn interprets it that way.

      • Proserpina

        Exactly. People can’t read or listen, look at all the stupid comments. lmao…

    • Dr. Bob Uda, Ph.D., CM, CHSP, ILO

      Liberalism is a mental disorder. Feinstein is a liberal. Hence, Feinstein is a mental case. I rest my case.

      • Louis

        Not to second-guess Dr. Bob Uda, but liberalism is more than merely a mental disorder. It is also a spiritual disorder — a serious one — called diabolical possession. You can tell if a person is diabolically possessed by employing the use of logic.

        For example, Feinstein is pro-abortion, yet she claims that strict gun control will save lives. But if Feinstein wants to save lives, then why is she pro-abortion, a practice that has claimed the lives of over 56 million unborn US kids since 1973?

        Diabolically-possessed liberals, such as Feinstein, mask their murderous intentions with claims that they will produce a positive effect. This is illogical and therefore is sick and evil.

        • Proserpina

          Let me guess, anti-abortion but pro-war? Kill em after thier 18, kinda like way late term abortion… but Jezuz says thats alright, cuz their not Merikans or KKKristian Soldierz.

      STOP your children from joining the military.
      You need them HERE to protect you and your family.

      Realize that wars are designed to kill off innocent people.
      We send our troops to other countries to terrorize THEM….
      There is a very good chance our childrren will not attack us.

      HOWEVER, troops from other countries coming here will not think
      twice about killing here….just as we go there and kill.

      Also, who will protect us from these foreign troops if our children are off
      in some foreign country?

      You cannot have a war if no one will enlist.
      Politicians have never fought for this country. They sit behind a desk
      and send our children to kill and mame others.

      As a reward for this shameless behavior, they are labeled mentally insane,
      and not fit to own a gun, (heaven forbid that they are capable of protecting their own
      families, friends, neighborhood…upon return)….

      Invading another country to steal their resources, assassinate their leaders, and/or
      kill innocent men, women, and children is not honorable behavior.
      Defending your own at home is honorable.
      Bradley Manning is an honorable example.
      Refusing to kill innocent people is honorable.


      Do NOT be fooled into the military where you will be shipped far away from your loved ones…. unable to defend what is rightfully yours. THIS is your country. Right Here.

      If politicians want to fight a war, LET THEM GO FIGHT IT. (and they won’t)
      They will NOT jeopardize their own lives, or the lives of their families, I promise you.

      Foreign troops have been seen and documented numerous times in this country recently…
      THINK…. why in God’s name would you put YOUR life on the line for some politician
      rather then staying right here and protecting your own?

      There is enough on this planet for everyone.
      There is free energy all around us.
      It IS POSSIBLE for us to live to peace and in harmony with nature….

      But it requires we the people to start thinking for ourselves….
      Wake up, before its too late.
      of heroism.

    • clockwork angel

      Let me ask you “vets” something I am reading allot lately to where these young men that are coming back from Iraq and Afgani missing arms, legs, sight,eating out of dumpsters and suffering from mental fatigue and only to be left out in the cold no job no home and to some nothing! for what? Where is YOUR government now? if you come backed maimed your an expense your are worthless in the eyes of your government you are a sheep and you wonder why they want your firearms? because some of you brave soldiers are finally seeing the broken promises and deceit they are taking away not only your rights but your humanity…. labeling you as mentally ill so you will fall in line with the rest of the herd…killing innocent children is cowardly murder. Standing up up to tyrants is true bravery…fighting for your Constitution and God given rights is honorable.

        There are two kinds of peace.

        On one you live your life freely and let other live their lives freely.

        The other is the Roman peace. Is call that way because it was the peace that the Romans imposed in the countries they conquered. Everyone hate them and everyone was repressed. But no one have the military power to oppose them.

        War, is better than the Roman peace. Because with war, at least you got a chance toward true peace. While with the Roman peace, you are just living afraid.

    • cdubs69

      First of all the author of this article must not be able to read. If you look at this “quote”, if it even is an actual quote, it does not say all veterans are mentally ill. It doesn’t say that vets shouldn’t have guns. Point out one spot in her “quote” that she says this. What the quote actually deals with is the amendment to her bill that would allow retired military to purchase assault weapons. Her response is that this was not an issue with the first ban, and that it isn’t clear how the seller of the weapon would verify the person was a retired vet or that there were no mental issues.

      AS usual you have someone who wants to give inaccurate information and you have sheep that will post something like this without actually reading it. The only problem with her “quote” is that PSTD is not new, it’s just a new name for an old problem.

      • Anonymous

        Is not her call to make. Nor is government, or even the majority call to make.

        The constitution is clear and the constitution is the law of the land.

        Those who believe in collectivism think that rights are granted. Those, like me, that believe in individualism know that rights are recognizes and not granted.

        The collectivist think that the collective owns the individual and thus the collective gets to decide the fate of the individual. We individualist know that each and every individual own themselves and thus have inalienable rights. To believe in the collective is to believe in slavery. To believe in the individual is to believe in liberty.

      It’s easy to see whose really suffering here from ‘mental illness’….Feinstein! She targets vets who served the country so the likes of her could run it!!! Targets ‘vets’ yet ignores common criminals who are the source of the majority of gun crime and have no problem getting firearms. The government continues to target the ‘common citizen’ that maintains firearms reponsibly for either sport, work or protection….while the ‘common criminal’ is the real source of the problem.

    • Marc

      lol, This coming from the lady that got a firearm concealed carry permit after she claims terrorists tried to blow up her house and then surrounded herself with 24/7 armed security. If anybody has a psychological disorder its her.

      I don’t think I will ever understand how people cant see that Feinstein is projecting her fears into legislation that is destroying freedom in this country. She needs to be removed from office because her mental disorder is clouding her ability to function in a political office.

    • lindarosemary

      Feinstein is the one who is mentally ill! I would trust all the vets I knowk, and I know a lot, with a gun before I would trust that beotch.

    • pattiesimmons

      I think, due to EXTREME PSYCHOSIS, Sen. Feinstein should be removed from office, escorted to the BEST MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY the taxpayers can afford, relieved of ALL ACCUTREMENTS THAT CAN BE DEEMED AS ASSOCIATIVE TO HER PSYCHOSIS, given a very tasty Haldol cocktail and then escorted to her lovely rubber room.

      Who doe she think she’s fooling? If she is for it – I know it can’t be good. Of course she promotes psych drugs and gun control as the solution. So would Hitler. Hubbard exposed brainwashing in the 50s and then the rest of it in the 60s and they never forgave him for it.
      “There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.” Aldus Huxley [Transcript –The Ultimate Revolution, March 20, 1962 Berkley Language Center – Speech Archive SA 0269]

YOU INTEND TO MASSACRE US ONCE WE GIVE THEM UP JUST LIKE YOU HAVE DONE 9 OTHER TIMES OVER THE YEARS THAT RESULTED IN 12,886 AMERICAN DEATHS. YOUR FAVORITE COUNTRY HAS KILLED MORE AMERICANS THAN ALL MUSLIM COUNTRIES PUT TOGETHER. Go away and take your satanic slimey lying mouth with you.
