U.S. Senator D. Feinstein to Sponsor New “Assault Weapons Ban”

Diane Feinstein gun banU.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D., California) has pledged to introduce a new, tougher “assault weapons” ban in the next session of Congress. Speaking to California delegates at the Democratic National Convention, Sen. Feinstein stated she would seek passage of an “updated assault weapons bill”, according to the website. Explaining her reasoning behind sponsoring new anti-gun legislation, Feinstein said: “Weapons of war do not belong on our streets, in our classrooms, in our schools or in our movie theatres.” Sen. Feinstein was a co-sponsor of the 1994 Federal ban on many types of semi-automatic rifles. This ban expired in 2004 and has not been revived so far.
