Assault Weapons Ban Banned

This is, to say the least, not a good thing.

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.

This is probably based on the theory that the NRA is too big to fail and that something like Newtown will never happen again anyway.  Such is what passes for common sense conventional wisdom.

3 barks and woofs on “Assault Weapons Ban Banned

  1. There are no words to express my outrage at the pusilanimous conduct of Congressional members. May the fleas of a thousand camels invade their armpits.

  2. Maybe if some of their kids went through a lock-down event (no deaths/injuries), they might see the light. Call it a Rob Portman epiphany. /snark

  3. It is ridiculous. The American people are tired of other American people being slaughtered by these weapons. Stop the madness.
