Did Feinstein & Boxer Make The Claim 'Turn In Your Weapons & Gunman Will Turn Himself In?'


According to the Palookaville Post, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and her sidekick Senator Barabara Boxer, during the midst of the manhunt for Chris Dorner, they called for disarming law enforcement and private citizens, claiming, "When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.” It's been circulating all over the internet. The problem? The story is satire. Given Feinstein and Boxer's views on guns, even I fell for it.

The post claimed that a Senate communications intern, speaking on behalf of both Senators said,

“The Senators feel the best course of action is to remove all weapons from law enforcement and private citizens so no one else gets hurt. When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.”

Their response was to the alleged gunman, a former Los Angeles Police Officer, who is accused of murdering at least three people and wounding others and the shootings that have taken place by LAPD in the search for Dorner.

Dorner's manifesto was a mixed bag of ideology. On the one hand Dorner seems to make a good case of how corrupt the LAPD is and I might add, how they have demonstrated themselves to be those that used excessive force in the midst of this manhunt. On the other hand, he also seems to just go off the deep end. I can somewhat understand his frustration, that from his perspective, the LAPD had basically backed him into a corner. However, I completely disagree with the alleged manner in which he is said to be dealing with it. One does not become a vigilante, taking out their own justice on anyone, especially the innocent people who have been killed.

Ironically the manifesto made several hypocritical statements about gun control.

The post went on to cite another "unnamed Riverside, CA alderman. While I wrote to the Palookaville Post, since they do not claim to be a satire site, to verify the authenticity of the story, others had made a similar attempt on their Facebook page as well and the response was " Don't make us bring in 'Segretti'...."

FreedomOutpost has a few gentlemen who, on occasion, write satire, but our policy has been to make people aware in the article that it is satire and most satire sites will have that information in their "About" section. Palookaville Post doesn't provide that information. Their about section reads,

The majority of decent hard working Americans already understand the exceptional values our nation has introduced to the world. However, some of today’s young people, and others occupying the misinformed minority, should be inspired to appreciate and emulate the goodness of their fellow citizens. Our mission is to provide that inspiration.
Description:
The now defunct Palookaville Post newspaper was founded by Palookaville mayor Terry Malloy, an ex-prizefighter who rose to prominence after bringing down the corrupt leadership in the local unions. Following Malloy’s example, The Post has relentlessly pursued the truth, exposing all the facts, then letting the chips fall where they may. The online version of the Post looks to continue that noble endeavor.

As of yet, there has been no response to my FB messages or email sent to them.

I apologize for the earlier post, which referenced this article as fact. However, maybe this will be useful and instrumental in clearing things up that are being passed off as true.

I will say this, according to the ideology of Senator Feinstein concerning firearms, this should be her logical conclusion.

UPDATE: Palookaville Post finally responded to my email and as such indicates they cannot be taken seriously. Here was their reply:

Hi Tim,

Thank you for your interest in our recent article. "Segretti" advises Ace
Cub Reporter Jimmy Olsentwins to never reveal his sources or their intent,
and he will follow that advice. I can however confirm that 97.5% of all
information on the Palookaville Post has been certified correct by spell
check and Robert's Rules of Order.

Best,

The Paperboy...

    That's not "Cannot be taken seriously". That's "Told you not to even THINK about taking them seriously". };-D>

    I have never heard of the Palookaville Post, but anyone who thinks that any publication by that name is serious, is just stupid. They don't have to identify it as satire, their name says it all. Would you be quoting The Onion and taking it seriously.

    Please review and repair your malformed opening sentence. Specifically, remove "they", as you have already established the subject with proper nouns and you may not do so again until the next clause, or the next sentence. In its current form, your opening statement forces others to question the quality of your editorial workmanship without even considering its content.

    I farted when I read this story. It still doesn't stink as much as these liberal folks who seriously believe that can ever achieve a Nirvana-like love-peace-chicken grease society. They think the Republicans are too narrow minded, but Liberals seem to constantly lack logic. What happened to moderates? The best days of this country are clearly behind us, and the downward spiral seems to be unavoidable. A revolution is coming.

    Feinstein and Boxer are absolute nut cases if they believe that garbage stated. Absolute fools. As the old saying goes, "Fools live in fools paradise."

    Boxer wasn't even in California on the 7th. Further, read to the bottom of the 'article' and the quotes attributed to the LAPD about how the federal government was more dangerous than the Dorner.

    With the exception of a snippet of Dorner's manifesto, not a single 'quote' they offered checked out. They were all fabricated.

    If you want a real laugh (and a superb indication of how credible these jokers are), read their article about how FEMA blamed Bush for the Superbowl power outage in an 'official statement'.

    http://www.palookavillepost.com/2013/02/04/fema-blames-george-w-bush-for-super-bowl-power-failure/

    An 'official statement' which, of course, never existed.

    You were totally duped. Though kudos on admitting it. Many of the folks that foamed at the mouth in outrage at the imaginary quotes are sticking to them. Including 'Paperboy', the guy who made them up.

    Are these two dimwits trying to make a joke or are they the joke. What kind of fool would even suggest such a thing. Have they had a huge snow storm in Californacation lately that froze their brain, that is if they have a brain.

  • EddyJames

    Are you sure their comment wasn't "After we get him we're coming for your guns next,so lay them down before we put you down...Resistance is futile!"
