Video- Senator Cruz Educates Senator Feinstein On Constitution

By Susan Duclos

An exchange between Republican Senator Ted Cruz and Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, via video clip, shows Cruz asking Feinstein if she support the same level of infringement upon First Amendment or Fourth Amendment rights as she is proposing to do with her gun bans, on the Second Amendment.

Feinstein's answer was to express outrage that he would dare "lecture" her on the constitution, but she didn't answer the question.

The exchange witnessed below shows why Senator Ted Cruz is a politician that should be watched over the course of the next few years.


 "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?" Cruz asked Feinstein.
"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 law?"

Pointing her finger and glaring at Cruz, Feinstein shot back.

"One, I'm not a sixth grader," Feinstein said. "Senator, I've been on this Committee for 20 years. I was a mayor for nine years. I walked in and I saw people shot with these weapons. (Source)

[Update] The Senate Judiciary Committee passed the gun ban along party lines, 10-8,  but the full Senate is expected to "shoot it down."
