    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) no longer has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

    Feinstein, who has taken the lead on efforts to renew a federal assault weapons ban, acknowledged during a hearing in 1995 of previously having a concealed weapon permit.

    At the time, she said she needed it for security, but she has since dropped the permit.

    "The senator does not have a concealed weapon permit," Feinstein spokesman Tom Mentzer said in an email to The Hill on Thursday.

    In 1995 a hearing on terrorism after the Oklahoma City bombing, Feinstein recounted how, in the 1970s, she was the target of the New World Liberation Front which first attempted to blow up her home. After the bomb failed to detonate, Feinstein explained, she decided to arm herself.

    "Later the same group shot out all the windows of my home and I know the sense of helplessness that people feel. I know the urge to arm yourself, because that’s what I did. I was trained in firearms," Feinstein said in the 1995 hearing.

    "When I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick, I carried a concealed weapon," she said. "I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out I was going to take them with me. Now having said all of that, that was a period of time ago and I’ve watched through these 20 years as terrorism has increased both on the far extremist left and the far extremist right in this country."

    Feinstein got rid of the permit once the New World Liberation Front was no longer a threat to her.

    Now Ms. Feinstein has armed knuckle draggers to follow her around. As a multi-millionaire that made all that money using insider information as a Senator, she can afford the muscle.

    She's a powerful senator with a high security clearance.

    She's more powerful than you'll ever be.... this life or the next.

    She pays more in taxes than you'll make in a decade.

    She eats people like you with her coffee. (you don't even make the lunch menu)
