WASHINGTON – The sponsor of an assault weapons ban is conceding that she’ll need lots of help from President Barack Obama and others for the proposal to have a chance of surviving in the Senate.
The Democratic-led Senate Judiciary Committee seemed certain to approve the measure Thursday, probably on a party-line vote. But once it reaches the full Senate — probably in April — the measure appears destined for defeat, thanks to opposition by Republicans and some moderate Democrats, as well.
“I’d like to see everybody doing more,” bill sponsor Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday when asked if she’d like more assistance from Obama. “Yes, absolutely, we need help. We have the 800-pound gorilla out there”
This crazy cunt, appears to be determined to get hard working, tax paying, citizens killed. Not to mention people like herself. She seems impervious to the ramifications she is proposing.
Hopefully, the Democrat Party still has one or two (probably 6) members with sense enough to halt this insanity.
I know of no law enforcement officer that will participate in such a dangerous move. They are our neighbors, in many cases good friends. They want to go home each day, and I (for one) want them to.
Feinstein’s bill would ban semi-automatic weapons, and also large-capacity ammunition magazines carrying more than 10 rounds, which she and her allies say allow shooters to inflict more casualties before pausing to reload, which is when they might be stopped. Adam Lanza, the Newtown gunman, was said to have had 30-round magazines.
We the People must let them know that we are simply not going to take this. That we are not kidding around on this one. This needs to stop now. Before it’s too late to undo the damage.
