Ted Cruz rips into gun grabber Dianne Feinstein

Senator Ted Cruz rips Feinstein a new one
  • Cruz's question:  'If you can limit the 2nd Amendment then why not limit the 1st and 4th Amendments.'

Constitutional Federalist Senator Ted Cruz dared to ask gun grabber Senator Dianne Feinstein a question on the Bill of Rights.  She responded to the "young whippersnapper" from Texas with a lecture on how many decades she has served in the Senate.

It turned into a heated exchange while discussing the California Senator's proposed ban on so-called “assault” weapons.
“The question that I would pose to the senior senator from California is,” Cruz said, referring to Feinstein, “Would she deem it consistent with the Bill of Rights for Congress to engage in the same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the Second Amendment in the context of the First or Fourth Amendment, namely, would she consider it constitutional for Congress to specify that the First Amendment shall apply only to the following books and shall not apply to the books that Congress has deemed outside the protection of the Bill of Rights?”
“Likewise, would she think that the Fourth Amendment’s protection against searches and seizures could properly apply only to the following specified individuals and not to the individuals that Congress has deemed outside the protection of the Bill of Rights?” he added.

Apparently, Sen. Feinstein was not amused with the Texas senator’s line of questioning.
“I’m not a sixth grader,” she responded. “Senator, I’ve been on this committee for 20 years. I was a mayor for nine years. I walked in, I saw people shot. I’ve looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. I’ve seen the bullets that implode. In Sandy Hook, youngsters were dismembered. Look, there are other weapons.”

“And so I — you know, it’s fine you want to lecture me on the Constitution. I appreciate it. Just know I’ve been here for a long time. I’ve passed on a number of bills. I’ve studied the Constitution myself. I am reasonably well educated, and I thank you for the lecture,” she added.

The California senator eventually got around to answering Sen. Cruz’ question on how she reconciles her proposed “assault” weapons ban with the Second Amendment.
Her eventual answer? “Assault” weapons are kind of like child pornography.
