Assault weapons ban dropped from Senate gun control bill

Assault weapons ban dropped from Senate gun control bill

The leader of the Democrat-controlled Senate on Tuesday dropped a proposed assault weapons ban from the chamber’s gun-control package – dealing a blow to supporters of the ban, though it could still come up for a vote.

The sponsor of the measure, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., revealed that Reid told her the proposed ban would not be in the initial package. Feinstein said she’s “disappointed” with the decision, and is expected to nevertheless offer it as an amendment.

But the move by Reid to cut it from the main bill signals a lack of congressional support for a proposal that would not only revive, but strengthen, the decade-long ban that expired in 2004.

    They all talk a good game but when push comes to shove they turn and run. Gun Lobby and NRA are powerful forces in DC. Reid himself is a gun owner. Gladly Reid is a chicken.

    Gee, did stupid Di Fi finally wear out her welcome. Freshman Senator Cruz made her look like an idiot. She could not recite the Constitutional prerogative for her stupid bill. What a dummy.

    See The Two Minute Conservative at: http://tinyurl.com/7jgh7wv and when you speak ladies will swoon and liberal gentlemen will weep.

      Call your SENATORS and remind them what the Constitution says– also tell them tovote DOWN the UN Small Arms Treaty

    It’s all smoke and mirrors! With our attention (presumably) off of the “assault weapons” ban and on other issues, they will try and slide, or should I say slither other proposals by!!

    The gun grabbing hoards will not let up and neither should we! If all they did was introduce laws aimed exclusively at violent criminals or enforce existing laws and leave us peaceful law-abiding citizens alone, we wouldn’t care. But the idiots underestimate how many people in the country are pro-gun and keep missing their mark. They can go pound sand!!!!

  • GDC97

    ALL who support ANY gun control should be EXECUTED!!!

    • violater1

      At the very least they should have a chain heated to white hot temperature dragged up the crack of their assss!

      They should have a chain heated to white hot temperature dragged up the crack of their anus!

    I’m betting it’s a trick. They will stick it back in.

    Every time you hear some Lib/socialist talk about “reasonable measures”, “sensible”, or
    “common sense” gun control, you can be assured the SOB has the ultimate goal of
    confiscating all guns.

  • Auntie Ba

    It looks like our indignant outcries are having an effect. We must remain alert and keep it up.

    • oldguy199

      Call your senators about the UN treaty

    The SCUM will be brought back (watch Shummer) Also call your SENATORS and tell them–the time you waste here reading what you agree with could be better served telling your SENATORS to vote down ALL weapons bills or life for them will be harsh—DO NOT FORGET to tell them about how you feel about the UN Small Arms Treaty. Be a swarm of MOSQUITOS on this- do not give them a second’s relief
    Remember the ANTI-FREEDOM ANTI GUNNERS are swaming TOO

  • Big Sheepdog CCW

    Review any gun control opponents in the legislature who are up for reelection in 2014 and remind them which side of the bread is buttered. Do they want to remain employed or join the public who are unemployed? Be sure to call them or send them emails or snail mail letters voicing your concerns of their future employment. Remember Congress works for us, not the other way around.

    They only dropped it long enough for all the Senators to try and corner the market. Figure they’ll need them after passing a budget calling for over a Trillion more dollars in taxes. Or as they call it, “revenue”. The people familiar with the Constitution call it “outright theft”.

  • diencaedau

    They are waiting for NATO to confiscate the guns with the help of the treaty signed by poodle boy and hillery,obommas yess croud.
