Feinstein Vows to Introduce Assault Weapons Ban Bill

California Senate Democrat Dianne Feinstein – a renowned and notorious gun-grabber and enemy of the Second Amendment – targeted America’s “gun culture” in the wake of the deadly rampage in Connecticut attributed to a mentally ill man on Friday.

“I hope and trust that in the next session of Congress there will be sustained and thoughtful debate about America’s gun culture and our responsibility to prevent more loss of life,” Feinstein said soon after the murders.

“I will do another assault weapons ban,” she promised.

Feinstein has exploited shootings in the past as part of her ongoing effort to attack the Second Amendment. In 1993, following the the 101 California St. shooting in San Francisco, Feinstein introduced an assault weapons ban in the Senate. The decade long ban was signed into law by president Clinton in 1994. It outlawed a number of semi-automatic weapons based on cosmetic features and other attributes such as flash suppressors and telescoping stocks. The law also banned “high capacity magazines or feeding devices.”

Despite claims by Democrats, studies found that the Federal Assault Weapons Ban did not reduce or prevent violence. The United States Department of Justice National Institute of Justice said that a renewed gun ban would have virtually no impact on gun violence because so-called “assault weapons” are rarely used in gun crimes. Moreover, according to a study performed by the Center of Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania, there is no statistically significant evidence that either the assault weapons ban or the ban on magazines holding more than 10 bullets had reduced murders attributed to firearms.

Since the law expired in 2004, the anti-Second Amendment crowd has unsuccessfully attempted to pass a number of bills outlawing firearms. Feinstein and fellow gun-grabber Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, Democrat of New York, have remained at the forefront of the effort to disarm the American people. McCarthy has introduced legislation to ban so-called assault weapons on numerous occasions. Fortunately for the Second Amendment, all of her efforts have failed.
