Senator Dianne Feinstein says she'll reintroduce assault weapon legislation
KPCC ^ | Kitty Felde

Dianne Feinstein announced Wednesday that she’s re-entering the battle over gun control during her keynote speech to the California delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

Feinstein was president of the San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors on what she calls that city’s “day of infamy” in 1978, when a former colleague shot and killed Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone. Since then, Senator Feinstein has been one of the most vocal proponents of gun control on Capitol Hill.

She promised California delegates she’d return to Congress to reintroduce “an updated assault weapons bill.”

At the delegates' breakfast, she said that, "Weapons of war do not belong on our streets, in our classrooms, in our schools or in our movie theatres."

Feinstein co-sponsored an assault weapons ban signed into law in 1994, which expired 10 years later.

Anything that is not a bolt action will be considered an assault weapon.

I don’t know. There are those here on FR who are content with sitting this one out or voting 3rd party because Romney wasn’t their choice.

This is what they have to look forward to.

But there are no consequences to their decision.......amirite?

Maybe she’ll include those guns that make that nasty ch-ch sound, when you slide the bolt.

“Assault” rifles. You know, as opposed to love pat rifles.

Yes, and bolt actions will be considered sniper rifles.

No, I think we’re going back to smooth-bore muzzle loaders. The ones with string tied to the trivet to lower a candle into your powder.

It wouldn’t surprise me to hear she was in office on the real “Day of Infamy,” Dec. 7, 1941.

I say let's go all in. Let's ban cars while were at it. Too many drunk drivers are killing innocent people in this country.

BAN CARS NOW!!!

The entire freakshow known as the DNC should serve notice of what another 4 years of Obama would look like.

Vote Romney. It's SELF-DEFENSE.
