Well, it sounds like someone in the Democratic party remembers the spanking the Democrats received in the elections following the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban.

According to TheHill.com, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has declined to endorse senior California Senator Dianne Feinstein’s proposed assault weapons ban.

This legislation is dying a slow death and Feinstein is already crying foul over the witnesses selected for the Senate’s hearing on gun violence.

From TheHill.com: “She’s talked to me about her assault weapons. The new one. She believes in it fervently and I admire her for that. I’ll take a look at that,” he said in response to a reporter’s question. “We’re going to have votes on all kinds of issues dealing with guns, and I think everyone would be well advised to read the legislation before they determine how they’re going to vote [on] it.”

The assault weapons ban is certainly the 800lb gorilla in the Senate, but just because it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere right now doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be vigilant about the dozens of other bills that have already been and will be introduced in both the Senate and the House.
