As most of you if not all know Senator Feinstein is pushing for much stricter gun laws, proposing a ban on the sales, transfer, and possession of assault weapons.
What strikes me is that she and her husband have made millions off the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Her husband is reported to be in the arms dealing business.
Just something to think about.

In the United States

Criticism of companies such as Halliburton in the context of the Iraq War draw heavily on the stereotype of the businessman profiteer. Slogans relating to 'blood for oil' have a similar implication.

Steve Clemons, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation think tank, has accused former CIA Director James Woolsey of both profiting from and promoting the Iraq War.[6]

The Center for Public Integrity has reported that US Senator Dianne Feinstein and her husband, Richard Blum, are making millions of dollars from Iraq and Afghanistan contracts through his company, Perini[disambiguation needed].[7] Feinstein voted for the resolution giving President George W. Bush the authority to invade Iraq.

HYPOCRISY, MIS-REPRESENTATION, OUTRIGHT FALSEHOODS - generally go to OT. Scorpion stings frog, poisonous snake bites kind lady - it seems to be the nature of some people and organizations, and not news. Perfectly fine to note it; no value in a long thread discussing it.
