Feinstein bill would re-establish assault weapons ban

Monday, March 14, 2005


(03-14) 16:45 PST WASHINGTON, (AP) --


Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation Monday to re-establish the federal assault weapons ban, which expired last September after Congress did not reauthorize it.


Feinstein, D-Calif., was the author of the original 1994 ban on the manufacture and importation of at least 19 types of common military-style assault weapons. She got an amendment through the Senate last year to extend the ban, but it was killed when the piece of legislation it was attached to failed after lobbying by the National Rifle Association.


Feinstein announced bipartisan co-sponsors Monday: Republican Sens. John Warner of Virginia and Mike DeWine of Ohio, and Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer of New York. But getting the bill through the Republican-controlled Congress will be an uphill battle.


"We know the ban worked. We voted for its renewal in the Senate last year. Yet, it was allowed to expire," Feinstein said in a statement. "This failure will have deadly consequences on the streets of America. It is time to re-establish the ban and help make our communities safer."


The NRA and other opponents contended the ban was ineffective, in part because copycat weapons not covered by the ban were easy to make.

Medically, the term for politicians like Schumer, Feinstein, Kerry, and Kennedy , et al is "cranial rectumitis." It can be surgically cured...

LSU Tiger,
