(WASHINGTON TIMES) Just in case you thought the Democratic push for a federal ban on assault weapons might die a quiet death in the House, where Republicans hold the majority, now comes Sen. Dianne Feinstein to assure otherwise.
Assault weapons are “personal pleasure[s]” that should not take precedence over the good of the nation,” she said.
“We will make the case that these weapons do not belong on the streets of our cities,” she said, during an MSNBC appearance. “I recognize it’s an uphill battle. … [But] the mothers, the women, the men of American have to make a decision as to whether their personal pleasure is more important than the general welfare.”
