DiFi’s List of Endorsements for the “Assault Weapons” Ban of 2013

Perpetual opponent of the US Constitution Dianne Feinstein has posted a convenient list of enemies of basic human rights protected by the Second Amendment on her official website.  This list is posted below, along with the ironic oath of office taken by US Senators take upon entering office.

US Senate Oath of Office

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
