Earlier this week Dianne Feinstein introduced a draconian “assault weapons” ban which would also include a ban on most handguns as well as some rifles and shotguns.
There is some good news if this article is correct however; she may not have enough Democrat votes to pass the legislation:
A proposed ban on sales of assault weapons would be defeated in the U.S. Senate today unless some members changed their current views, based on a Bloomberg review of recent lawmaker statements and interviews.
At least six of the 55 senators who caucus with Democrats have recently expressed skepticism or outright opposition to a ban, the review found. That means Democrats wouldn’t have a simple 51-vote majority to pass the measure, let alone the 60 votes needed to break a Republican filibuster to bring it to a floor vote.
