We already know not to question Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s encyclopedic knowledge of guns, and now we know we certainly don’t want to question her knowledge of the Constitution. She’s been in Washington a long, long time, and she let her colleague, freshman Sen. Ted Cruz, know that she’s pretty darn familiar with the founding documents. In fact, she told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer she felt “patronized” by Cruz bringing up the constitutionality of her assault weapon ban and needed some time to cool down before she could speak to him again.
Feinstein says she felt patronized during AWB debates. Perhaps its because gun advocates think she's a moron. #JustSaying

On CNN, Feinstein says she "felt patronized" by Cruz. "I appreciate the lecture, but, you know that's all I'm going to say."

What the Bill of Rights needs, apparently, is someone like Feinstein to set limits. Sure, her assault weapon ban would take hundreds of firearms out of the public’s hands, but she’s leaving you with her personal selection of 2,271 weapons to choose from: isn’t that enough? She must know the Bill of Rights way better than we do to have found that precise number in there. That, and the word “need.”
Mrs Feinstein, it doesn't MATTER "what you think". It only matters what the Constitution says.

Senator Feinstein to Senator Cruz: "Senator, I'm not a 6th grader." Diane, you have been fooling me and a whole lot of others!

Feinstein admits she doesn't know much abt the Constitution but she's been changing it for years. So, we shld just trust her now.

Feinstein isn't a sixth grader. My 5-year-old granddaughter has more common sense and patriotic spirit than old fuddy-duddy Calif. senator.

It's humorous that Sen Feinstein calls herself reasonably well-educated. She demonstrates ignorance by the hour. #guncontrol

@SenTedCruz Thank you senator for taking it to Sen. Feinstein, she is right about one thing she has been in the senate a long time, too long

CA's DiFi tsk-tsked @SenTedCruz by saying she's been on the committee for 20 yrs. Yeah, that's the problem, Senator Feinstein. Lost on her.

Feinstein saying "how many guns do you need?" reminds me of Obama saying "I mean, how much $ do you need?".They just don't get it. #freedom
