If a ban can't pass the Senate, it certainly won't pass in the House. Consider the assault weapons ban a dead issue, while the ammunition limit is alive and well.
Wall Street Journal:
Senate Democratic leaders expect a gun bill to move to the Senate floor that includes most of the proposals backed by President Barack Obama, with the notable exception of a ban on military-style, semiautomatic weapons, a top aide to Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said.
The bill would likely seek to limit the capacity of ammunition magazines; expand background checks to include sales at gun shows and other private transactions; and require better record keeping to keep guns out of the hands of those with mental illnesses. It would also try to curb gun sales in states with more relaxed gun laws to buyers in states with stricter laws.
But the strategy outline also reflects a growing sense within Democratic ranks that some of the president's most ambitious goals-particularly the call for new bans on certain types of military-style guns often described as assault weapons-may be unrealistic, the Reid aide said.
The goal is to get the bill to the Senate floor next month, at which point lawmakers could then seek to amend the legislation by adding a ban on certain semiautomatic weapons or other provisions, the aide said.
The details provide the first snapshot of how Senate Democrats plan to move forward on major gun legislation in coming weeks...

CTD has been charging higher than market prices on things at this point - yes, higher than the CURRENT market.
Oh, and they also tried to screw us over after Sandy Hook, so don’t buy from them.
YES! I was just talking about the Right, not the actual language, BUT, you are correct in that KEEPING and BEARING are BOTH important and necessary Rights, that are the only defense when the need arises to protect We The People.
You have nailed it. The MSM just brainwashes people to go along on this. We have a little media now, which we did not have in ‘68 or ‘94.
Not one more anti-freedom law more. Not one.
Plenty they could do to “do something”.
Repeal the Gun Free School Zone act ... School shootings have quadrupled or quintupled since it was enacted, depending on how you count.
Enact National reciprocity for concealed carry, under the Second Amendment and the Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution.
As long as we have a Department of Education, have them provide funding for gun ranges at schools and gun safety classes as part of High School ROTC. This is a sport that women excel in, so that angle could be worked.
“Why is the SERIAL NUMBER and MODEL NUMBER needed for a background check?”
Because it makes building a universal registration system so much easier.
They have ALL been in killed in countries without a Second Amendment. The number killed in the United States, or Switzerland, or (maybe Finland) is so low (.000001 percent of the total) 2,000 out of 262 million, as to be effectively zero. Of course it was not insignificant to those killed.
Thanks. Another example. What happened to original thought?
These so called journalists and bloggers are just stealing from each other.
LOL! Post of the day.
I’m guessing there are a whole lot of guys out there who just paid $2k for a Bushmaster that feel like they just got smacked in the cojones today.
” Time to call your favorite Senate Dem and demand that they include this AR ban for gibby.”
or is it gabby ??
Is gabby a flattering nick-name for a woman?
Implies she talks to much.
they love those pee tests , maybe they will develop a permanent implant GPS probe that will determines sanity and sobriety at the same time
time to visit the police station and file a stolen gun report , I think they got in through the back door while I was at work
Means nothing without support from the House and they don’t have it.
Giffords used “ Gabby” because her constituents are unable to pronounce “Gabrielle” : )
I hate when that happens...
Many now refer to her as “Goofy”
Yeah, just a different kind of “goofy”
They’re working their way to some kind of “litmus test”, I’d bet. That’s where marxism/socialism/communism takes an enslaved people: same dead-end place and result.
