Good idea. Gearing up for the next election.

“We’re introducing an updated Assault Weapons Ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for debate and a vote.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

That goodness the story never made the mistake of calling them "automatic weapons" or something foolish like that.

It makes all the difference .

Further restrictions on semi-auto rifles with large capacity, round feed mechanisms won't make much of an impact on mass shootings. It's too late in the game. Time to tighten up the laws already in place......and that takes money and expansion of personnel....not more political, self serving legislation....

None. Absolutely no difference whatsoever.

How many military-style semi-automatic "assault rifles", capable of being fitted with high-capacity magazines, do you suppose are in the hands of the American people?

Politicians grandstanding? What a shock!

Ain’t steered. They trot crap like this out every year. It’s a symbolic bill, nothing more, and it won’t fly in a post-Heller America anyway.

As you said, its all political BS and liberals looking to tell themselves how wonderful they are.

Its not going to stop someone who wants to kill large amounts of people from doing that.

They don't have the numbers and they will not get them. It's just symbolic BS.

An that is what makes me so sick about this is they know it, but they go down this road for the own self serving political junk anyway while at the same time never doing anything to really deal with the problems as they know this route is going to get them the attention.

I think out of anything that makes me sick is how so many of there types will just use anything they can such as this to get what they want.

Its about as disgusting at it gets.

The USAF dropped the ball......and in a broader sense, that fact spotlights the problem no one cares to address...

It's just virtue signalling by feinstein when she thinks the time is right. I have seen her do this several times before.

That's because they know, but will not admit, that it is not the gun, but the sick behind the trigger. And that is something no gun law will fix.
