D.C., Philly Top Cops, Senate Sergeant at Arms implicated in conspiracy to illegally provide Democratic Senator "assault weapons" for P.R. stunt

by Bob Owens

Pro-gun confiscation Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has managed to land Chief Cathy Lanier of the Metropolitan Police Department in a criminal scandal. Lanier conspired with D.C. and Philadelphia Police to provide Feinstein with weapons in blatant disregard of the city’s draconian gun laws.


Lobbyist Chuck DeWitt emailed Chief Lanier on Christmas Eve last year. “Sen. Feinstein has asked us to bring examples of assault weapons used in the worst incidents over the past few years.” The CEO of the Lafayette Group told the chief that the guns would be put on display at a media event and asked, “Could you put me in touch with your person who would have any of these weapons?”

Chief Lanier’s response was not turned over.

However, a week after Mr. DeWitt’s request, Mrs. Feinstein’s press secretary, Tom Mentzer, asked the commander of the police department’s Crime Scene Investigation Division, Keith Williams, for 10 specific firearm models used in high-profile mass shootings, including a Bushmaster XM-15, Tec-9 handgun, Smith & Wesson M&P15 and a Glock 19 with a “high-capacity magazine.”

Since Cmdr. Williams did not have all the firearms the senator sought, Mr. DeWitt asked Philadelphia police to provide the missing ones, which meant bringing “the P15 and the Glock extended magazine” to Washington.

All of these firearms are illegal in the city — even on federal property — owing to the District’s law banning rifles with a detachable magazine and such features as a pistol grip or folding stock and all firearms with a magazines capacity of more than 10 rounds.


Philadelphia Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey and Senate Sergeant at Arms Terrance W. Gainer also played a role in providing and transporting weapon to the U.S. Capitol in spite of clear and unambiguous felony laws.

D.C. Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier, Philadelphia Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey, and Senate Sergeant at Arms Terrance W. Gainer need to be fired for intentionally violating the laws they are sworn to uphold, and be charged for their criminal conspiracy, along with Senator Feinstein, who is also clearly aware of the fact that laws were broken..
