Senator Feinstein Caught Lying in Anti-Gun Op-Ed
Article from The Daily Wire by Hank Berrien.
On Monday, senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) published an anti-gun op-ed in TIME in which they argued, “Guns like the AR-15 aren’t used for hunting and they’re not viable for home protection. They have only one purpose, and that’s to fire as many rounds as possible, as quickly as possible.”
Feinstein reiterated the statement on Twitter, writing, “Guns like the AR-15 aren’t used for hunting and they’re not viable for home protection. They have only one purpose: fire as many rounds as possible, as quickly as possible. 60% of Americans support outlawing these weapons.”
The first statement, that “Guns like the AR-15 aren’t used for hunting and they’re not viable for home protection,” is simply untrue. As RealTree reported in November 2016:
As far as the claim that AR-15s are “not viable for home protection,” The Washington Free Beacon pointed out that The Daily Signal delineated in March 2018 eight separate incidents in which an AR-15 was effectively used for home or business protection: a 2013 incident in which a 15-year-old boy defended himself and his 12-year-old sister from two home invaders; another incident in 2013 in which a college student’s unloaded AR-15 scared off two armed burglars; a 2014 incident in the Ferguson, Missouri riots in which only one business survived the onslaught in a 2-square mile radius because men guarded it with an AR-15; a 2017 incident in which a target of a drive-by shooting used his AR-15 to ward off an attack by three armed men; another 2017 incident in which a 19-year-old boy defended his home from three invaders; a third 2017 incident in which a man near a church in Texas forced a shooter to flee; a 2018 incident in which a man stopped an attack a man armed with a knife was about to commit against a pregnant woman, and another 2018 incident in which a man used an AR-15 to stop a threat from a relative of three robbers who had targeted the man’s home.

Who and or what might it be that winds these liars up? Might they be “self-winding” like wrist watches of yesterday? Answers welcomed.
THATS A LIE,
Please elaborate on your limited info comment!
And who the comment is directed at.
It doesn’t matter! The Left does NOT care. They have no scruples, the have no honor and the ends justify the means. If they must lie to win, then so be it. Facts, truth, statistics matter nothing to them.
Sounds like the perfect definition of democrats.
Besides, you can go hunting with an AR-15 styled weapon and it’s good if you are outnumbered. I’m ex-Army and I was good with a M16. Still good with anything like it.
Feinstein prefers lies when the truth would serve her better. Remember the Kavanaugh hearings and the little business about the secretly released letter? She seems to fly under the radar a lot but I certainly believe this country would be better of without her. As a matter of fact, this country would be better off without most democrats and about 1/3 of the republicans known as rinos or more accurately democrat eunuchs.
Why haven’t they done anything to Feinstein concerning her Chinese Spy That chauffeured her for 20 years?
This nut job knows nothing about she says. I hunt and use an AR for hunting and home defense. Funny how they think everyone is as dense as she is. Of course, with she previous mouthings, she would rather teel a lie than the truth even if the truth would prove her claim.,
I don’t know, I use mine to hunt coyotes, and other varmints all the time. I can take it out in the brush, rain or shine, and if it gets wet so what. We live on a farm near a land fill and have an abundant supply of nasty critters running around the place.
In the last month we have seen reports from Venezuela that the citizens can no longer protect themselves from the dictatorship government they have and want to get rid of, the reason being that the government took all the defensive weapons from the citizens.
That is what the 2nd Amendment is all about.
I wonder if Diane got her false information from her Chinese driver whom she used for 20 years before it was discovered he was a spy for China. I wonder too how it was found out.
They are on The Devils Team and Never Give Up!
Miss Diane works for the globalists that have been paying her wages for decades. She is one of the most disingenuous lying immoral congresswoman that we have ever had. Since our moral structure has decayed it would be a good law to prosecute open-faced lying. Then these Congress people you could live in the crossbar hotel. Just think attorneys living in jail what a beautiful sight
