Feinstein-All Vets Are Mentally Ill and The Gover. Should Prevent Gun Ownership

Kurt Nimmo

March 7, 2013

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.

The comments are included in the C-Span video below.

Thankfully, Feinstein’s bill will most certainly be dead on arrival and – for now – the American people (with the exception of Americans unfortunate enough to live in New York state) will have their Second Amendment rights spared.

Feinstein’s remark, however, reveals a deep-seated mistrust and contempt for America’s veterans. It also reveals the fear by government of the revolutionary potential of veterans, a fear dutifully expressed by the Department of Homeland Security when it said returning veterans are “right wing extremists” who may challenge the government.

Incidentally, Feinstein is way off the mark. Although PTSD is a relatively new definition, soldiers returning from combat have experienced anxiety disorders since time immemorial. It is nothing new. She is merely exploiting a modern psychology term in order to add substance to her argument that veterans are insane and as such must have their Second Amendment rights nullified.

Well following FrankenBitch's "logic" that all vets have PTSD, it follows that all active duty in combat situations must also.

So we should disarm all active duty military personnel in combat situations.

(which honestly I would support)

All whores are mentally ill, which precludes Diane Feinstein from ever attaining respect beyond that attained by common wharf rats. What a bitch. Rah rah to The City of London you tramp.

Yeah, and Gulf war syndrome it turns out, is radiation poisoning. Like "the air is okay to breath" on 911. These elected retards just make shit up that they have no clue about. Pathological lying is the disease ALL politicians have, along with a defective gene pool, severe mental deficiencies are also common. I believe in the two term system, the first in office the next in prison.

Feinstein is a symptom of a sick society who keeps her in office. I would not say we have a generation of incapacitated Vets. We (I) survived the Nam. You can help vets by talking to them and listening to them and being nonjudgmental. The veteran has two realities. It is unreal being pulled from the jungles of Vietnam and 20 hours later being on the streets of San Francisco, being spit on and called a baby killer. These guys are coming home heroes yet have to adjust to normal life yet the economy has changed in their absence. They are not mentally ill. Don't label them. PTSD is a popular diagnosis in the DSM 4 used to label battered women, children living in homes where domestic violence is prevalent, victims of a single disaster. I don't believe vets can be disarmed. They have not figured out how to disarm the criminal. The vet will not go down without a bloody fight because we do have that other reality below the surface that non vets will never understand.

So true Denise. Shell shock is what they called it in ww1 and 2, and they changed the name to PTSD during VIET NAM, Pelosie, you idiot. The guys came back with it after only one or two tours in Nam, so they KNEW THEY KNEW what would happen sending them for 3 and 4 tours! Judging from the evidence of their long term planning , I believe it was done to incapacitate the young men of this generation so that they would be unable to resist the coming collapse and provide an excuse to disarm them.
