“When will enough be enough?” Feinstein said in a statement Monday evening.
“Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country,” she said. “We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”
On Monday, she reiterated a call for new legislation in light of the Navy Yard shootings.
“This is one more event to add to the litany of massacres that occur when a deranged person or grievance killer is able to obtain multiple weapons — including a military-style assault rifle — and kill many people in a short amount of time,” Feinstein said.

The number of gun deaths are down by 56% and the number of guns in California have gone up by approximately 30 million (not a typo) in the same time frame. As we stop depending on government to protect us, we are safer. We need law enforcement, but they can not provide protection for every person in the State. Mainly, they show up after a crime has been committed, not before. Maybe if more people had guns, and could carry them, there would be fewer deaths and crimes.

I'm with you on that. Because they had no defense the bad guys (who will always find a way to get a firearm) were made strong while our own military was made weak. She has no argument this time - its clear it was due to gun control this was as bad as it was. And I don't think these guys even went in to kill. If they had it would have been much worse. They were there for some thing else.
Feinstein is killing this state one word at a time. She has slowly been signing the general population's death certificate.
In the years since she has been in power, I have watched my state slide down the tubes. She is chief fear monger when it comes to any sort of gun. This woman has legislature waiting in the wings to take down any remaining rights her constituents have, regardless of the situation.
She once made the argument that the Barrett .50 should be outlawed completely because someone could use the rifle to shoot at buses full of children from greater distances than a rifle chambered in a different caliber (I paraphrased because let's be honest, these folks know next to nothing about firearms).
Why am I making this post?
Because I dislike Feinstein more than any other politician, and I hope that another California resident else sees this, reads the crap she has pulled, and changes their mind about voting for her.
