    Sorry, I'm a little testy what with no sunshine here in 30 days, and a real rainy Memorial Day weekend expected.

    "I Really Wish You Were Dead"
    By Cornet Joyce II

    I know this is "old news," but the debate over the Assault Weapons ban, sunsetting bills, teetering congressional allegiances, changes of attitudes by President Bush, and the feebleness/ socialism of the NRA, has caused a quote by Senator Feinstein to be dusted off, spit-polished and thrust into the lime-light.

    For example, we find an editorial on the Claremont Institute site that re-quotes her inflammatory rhetoric: Feinstein (D-Calif.), who said on CBS's 60 Minutes: "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them, Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in, I would have done it." (February 5, 1995)


    I would like to extrapolate her statement to the "end of the story" in such a way as to pose a most chilling conclusion to her very straight-faced declaration.


    "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in!"

    I pose: "or else what, Senator Feinstein, OR ELSE WHAT?" Please think about that question before you read on, dear Reader. OR ELSE WHAT?


    Let's consider that for a moment. May I quote one western state Congressman who serves in the same Congress as she: "they will have to pry my gun out of my cold, dead hand." I personally received that intense statement from the gentleman in response to one of my warnings about gun confiscation. I was thrilled. I admire his obvious pregnant loneliness amongst his colleagues.


    Hundreds of thousands, perhaps MILLIONS, have said: "they will not get my guns without a fight." Hundreds of thousands have indicated they would die before they gave up their firearms. I am included in that group, knowing that I am proudly standing with the ghosts of the folks who died at Lexington, and all those since, who have forfeit their lives to keep their guns. That includes the fields of marble in Europe covering the cold dead hands of those who were content to tell Adolph Hitler and his ilk that his gun confiscation was about to end because they were not letting him cross that line at Lexington.


    So let's examine Senator Feinstein's concluding remark:


    "I would have done it"


    In other words, dear reader, she would as soon you be dead, if that is what is necessary for Mr. and Mrs. America turn them all in.


    I know some of you will throw up your hands in dismay, protesting: "that is not what she is saying. She is saying she will take them, but she is not saying how. Perhaps she is saying she will let the courts take them." To you granitic-brained obsequious mannequins I shout, HOW WILL THE G-D D (fair statement in their latest God-less-ness) courts do that without sending in the army or the police to TAKE THEM?


    SHE DOES NOT CARE. She is willing to see you dead, or she was making a totally asinine, careless, thoughtless statement. Now let us consider the quality of her mind. Her husband has sequestered a near-billion dollar defense contract from the government, and we are supposed to attribute "folly" and "ill-conceived" statements to her? As the youth of America is wont to exclaim: "Pluuuuuuuuleaze" don't insult me.


    I assert that Diane Feinstein was saying that if it takes killing to get the guns, and she could get the votes, she did not care who got killed. I assure you that Rosie of daytime television would at least have you in PRISON. What difference is there between being imprisoned and being killed? Damned little, if you will.


    I would hope that her wishes for your elimination/disarmament include thousands of you. If it only includes me, we are lost. This is one time "An Army of One" is Reductio Ad Absurdum.


    Now, dear reader, I ask you: How do you feel about a Senator who would just as soon see you dead to fulfill her desire to inflict upon you the UNITED NATIONS REQUIREMENT TO DISARM EVERY NATION????

    JBT: Mr. Paw? We're from the fedgov. Senator Feinstein's law was passed, and we're here to pick up your guns.

    BP: Really? Wow, too bad. A few years ago I had an emotional experience, you see, and I realized how bad guns were, so I sold them all! I don't have any guns any more! Tell the Senator how thrilled I was when she passed that law, so that all of the evil guns would get taken away!

    JBT: Do you have Bills of Sale?

    BP: Of course I do! ::rummage:: ::rummage:: Here you go!
    </hypothetical>

    And I would have Bills of Sale, too[0]! With signatures and dates and everything! :D

    They lie to us about wanting to keep is safe. Why shouldn't we lie to them that we're letting them?

    If laws like Total Confiscation ever get passed, then taking the High Road may no longer be a viable solution.

    But the good senator is just trying to lighten our mutual burden of self-protection. See, she has to carry a gun because she is so important. If she can get all the rest of us to disarm, then maybe she wont have to carry anymore either.

    Feinstein: "You first."

    :rolleyes:

    I would submit that at Lexington and Concord it was the High Road that was the road taken!

    Point taken. I was referring to the "lying to the federal agents at the door" part of the process.

    Nobody's prying any guns out of my cold, dead hands: I'm keeping them.

    Realistically, once such draconian measures were passed, how many people would BE at home to be taken? It seems that, like Solzhenitsyn wrote, that the job of enforcing such madness would become decidedly fatal and that none of the police riding in their Black Marias would WANT to risk being the first one in the door. Many local LE favor the RKBA, last week here in Chattanooga they even advised self-defense during a two day spree of home invasions. How many of these would sit on the warrants and NOT enforce this tyranny? :confused:
