No, there is no right to “be safe.”
There is, however, a natural right and a constitutional right to “defend yourself.”
If this jackass wants to go with a “right to be safe,” I’ll interpret it to mean a “right to defend oneself, family, and others with whatever weapon one chooses.”
Being “defenseless” is not the same as being “safe.”
Being “totally dependent on state-provided security” is not the same as being “safe.”
That’s the thinking blither of an idiot, a child, a totalitarian, a state-worshiper, or a liar.
Every day … they insult us e•vry. frik•kin’. daaaaaay!

Okay, on closer reading, I notice that she said,
“a right to believe that he/she’s safe.”
To belieeeve that you’re safe.
WTF does that even mean?
I mean, geeze, duuude. Is there even a brain connected to that tongue?
I believe not.
(What? Well, okay, a lizard brain.)
Okay, reckon a man’s gotta believe in something.
If I carry a handgun, I “believe I’m safer.”

Just so happens I feel a bit safer when I’m carrying.
* Don’t I have a right to know why the Dept of Homeland Security used my money to buy a billion rounds of ammunition?
* Don’t I have a right to know why my tax dollars were used to buy every IRS agent in this country a tactical shotgun?
* Don’t I have a right to feel safe that my teenage daughter can go to high school without some counselor hustling her over to a Planned Parenthood clinic for an abortion?
So we have a Senator from the most liberal state in the nation, who has been in the government employ most of her adult life, and a President from parts unknown who know what is best for us peons in flyover country. I think not.
Senator Feinstein is a good example as why we need term limits.
And our President is much like the failed German artist from last century that an adoring press and populace swept to power with terrible results.
I did hear right that BO is an artist right?
Doesn’t he draw flies in his spare time?
I must be off!

As to the 100-rnd drum magazine:
according to the article, that magazine jammed, so the murderer went to his backup, a shotgun which Biden recommends over the AR-style which jammed.
Larger mags are inherently less reliable than smaller mags, so it would seem that, in order to better meet DiFi’s concern, we should encourage high-capacity mags … the larger and more unreliable, the better.
