  •  How do you feel about the last assault weapons ban (8+ / 0-)

    Was it too slippery-slopey? It's pretty specific in what it bans.

    For instance, If you want a hunting rifle that has a flash suppressor, that's ok. If you want another hunting rifle with a pistol grip, that's ok too. But if want a hunting rifle that has both, nope.

    Feinstein authored the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban and it lived until 2004. It sounds to me like she just wants to put the old ban back into effect.

    I think something, anything has to be done to reverse the tide of gun deregulation.

      that she has worked for the past year on perfecting it, and bringing it up-to-date.

      i'm no fan of DiFi, but it's got to start somewhere.  

      Right now, the guy i trust most in this national discussion is michael bloomberg.  never thought i'd say that.  but he seems righteously enraged right now, and his rage has clarity in it.
