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.
