Feinstein: “All the police” support my assault weapon ban

Although Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) thinks she has all of the police supporting her proposed assault weapon ban, I can tell her with authority she does not.

I have directly spoken to three law enforcement officers about the subject, and – without prompting – all three are totally against an assault weapon ban or a magazine capacity limit. So much so I did not even have to ask the specific question. This includes one officer who responded to the Newtown shooting in December.

I know quite a few other cops, and don’t think it would be appropriate for me to flat out ask them what they thought. It’s my strong belief most of the line law enforcement officers out there are against any sort of expanded assault weapon ban or magazine capacity limit. Ask them yourself. Honestly, all they want to be able to do is their job and have the tools and training so they can do their jobs successfully.

I also think (my opinion) spokespersons for law enforcement and many in leadership positions are more closely associated with politics than they would like, and therefore need to tow a political line if they want to keep their jobs.


Are you in law enforcement? Have you spoken to a cop about the subject? If so, let’s see your (short) stories in the comments section.

    Feinstein who I disaffectionately started to refer to ( and it caught on ) last years as ‘Frankenstein’ should take note: The American Federation of Police and Concerned Citizens is all about supporting the 2nd amendment so this organization alone ( which runs the American Police Hall of Fame Museum in Titusville, Florida dedicated to Officers who have lost their lives in the line of Duty ) and which greatly helps surviving family members- is PRO-2nd amendment! So I guess that makes many thousands of us members-dillusional?? I think not.. I think SHE and her cohorts are ‘disease-brained Libs’ who believe their own excrement!

    With a personal net-worth well north of $100 million, it is safe to say that the senator lives a posh life. If she knows any “police,” they are most likely Chiefs or political types. Any rank-and-file LEOs certainly are in her security details, limo drivers, etc,? known as “the help.”
    I suspect that the senator would more likely tell people what to say and think around her and brook no deviation from the? Democrat party line.
    As with Obama, she will say and do anything to get her way, remain in power, promote her and her party’s brand and strive for total control by the privileged and powerful.
    Example: She can have a gun, but you can’t — do you have to ask why?
    Did I mention that she is a wealthy, elite Liberal? (Way, way past rich)

    There is one question. What about those sheriffs who do SUPPORT those law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms? There are a number of law enforcement sheriffs who have stood up for the 2nd Amendment.

      Well you see, a lot (not all) of the sheriff organizations are made up of law enforcement leadership who are elected by the people, not appointed by politicians.

    DiFi will be 80 in just a few months.? All I can think of is the mouse-brown hair dye?is seeping into her scalp and?affecting her brain.??Am sure she’d be apalled if she knew how goofy she looks.? Anyway, ‘all the police’?? Too bad they can’t vote in the US Senate because it’s unlikely Harry will bring it to the floor much less have a Dem vote for it with ’14 being an election year.

    I recently spoke with a trooper who was our Resident. He rotated through security for our, paaa-tu, governor and has been involved with “special assignments.” He and his colleagues are unhappy with the direction the state and specifically firearm’s legislation is taking. He is also uneasy with the people who are seeking to implement legislation simply to further their careers and make a name for themselves while carrying water for the Party. He indicated that the powerful politicians were personally disagreeable, rude, arrogant and dismissive of those who are assigned to protect them.
    Plus, as a group, they have suffered the wrath of the governor more than a few times, mainly on the issue of compensation. He is looking to serve his time, retire at an early age and get out of CT. His view is that CT has repressive gun laws — and will only continue to pass more onerous laws, taxes will only become more confiscatory and all the costs of living will siphon off more and more money when compared with another state.
    Until then, he is a Trooper in service to the Empire.
    Hope that helps.

    Here is the proof that high capacity magazines don’t kill more people.

    I heard?quite a few law officers at the LOB public hearing (1 of 4) about gun rights.? All but one of them who spoke were quite clear – “Keep your laws off of my rights.”
    Ms. Feinstein is?a big fat liar.? The arrogance is appalling.??She chooses not to hear.?
    Wise up Ms Feinstein, you heard us the first time ’cause you ain’t deaf and we didn’t stutter.

    Diane Feinstein believes if you repeat a lie often enough it will eventually become true. ?It’s twisted logic, I know, but this is how these liberals think. ?She used the same silly argument when she pushed the first assault weapons ban back in the nineties. ?Just for the sake of conversation, do you suppose if AR15’s were white in color instead of black would we be having the same silly argument from these loony progressives?

    if di fi is out speaking ?all the time, maybe she doesn’t have all the support she says?
