Passion Isn't Evidence
"How dare you question the Constitutionality of legislation I feel strongly about because of my personal traumatic experience!?"
Seriously? Feinstein, get some counseling. You're not a victim
testifying for a propaganda ad - you're a US Senator. Your PTSD about
guns doesn't make you an expert nor negate the 2nd Amendment. In fact,
this exchange with "arrogant", "patronizing" Ted Cruz clearly
demonstrates you are incapable of approaching the issue rationally, and
ought to be recused from it until you can control your emotions.
Feinstein is one of the few Democrat Senators I actually support on a
number of issues, but once she opens her mouth on guns - it's like
hearing a battered woman rant about her ex-husband.
