California Democrat Diane Feinstein is pained to announce that her assault on the 2nd Amendment will NOT include a ban on assault weapons. With any luck, the gutting of the Democrat gun control bill in the Senate should convince the 80-something Feinstein that Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was not alone when he took the lefty to task last week.
As reported at the reference:
Whither assault weapons ban: “Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said on Monday that a controversial assault weapons ban will not be part of a Democratic gun bill that was expected to reach the Senate floor next month,” Politico notes. “After a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Monday, a frustrated Feinstein said she learned that the bill she sponsored — which bans 157 different models of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines — wouldn’t be part of a Democratic gun bill to be offered on the Senate floor. Instead, it can be offered as an amendment. But its exclusion from the package makes what was already an uphill battle an almost certain defeat.”
Too bad, Di-fi, especially given the fact that you cannot blame “Evil Republicans” for shooting down your silly attack on the Constitution!
