Posted on 03/19/2013 8:44:42 AM PDT by jazusamo
Sen. Dianne Feinstein emerged from a closed-door meeting with Majority Leader Harry Reid on Monday but her ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines didnt.
Mr. Reid turned down her attempt to bring her ban on 157 different weapons and ammunition clips aboard the Democratic Partys comprehensive gun bill, Politico reported.
My understanding is it will not be [part of the base bill], said Mrs. Feinstein, California Democrat. I would like to [see it moved], but the leader has decided not to do it. You will have to ask him [why].
Her bill instead will have to go forth separately or as an amendment and that means its probably not going anywhere.

Where is the other hand? What is it doing?
Wow that’s too bad.
I was hoping to get EVERY senator on record with a vote on this.
Harry: do it for “the children”
They’re not serious. This is all grandstanding for the base. Oddly, I don’t think the base wants gun control either as I know two Democrats who have recently run out and bought their first guns.
I do not trust Tom Coburn to not give them cover to get at least something they want.
Never TRUST them...they are up to something
Registered Democrat scumbags/gutterwhores are deeply saddened.
Looks like all those years of experience in the Senate didn’t do her much good, I wonder if Sen. Cruz is chuckling. LOL!
The last time DiFi passed a gun control bill, it led to a Republican takeover of the House and Senate.
No he’s not but there’s others.
Exactly - with this piece of theatre out of the way they can concentrate on “common sense” legislation like universal background checks, aka registration and, hence, confiscation.
First they propose the huge bill, then decline it in favor of the smaller bill to show they are reasonable.
Thus everyone feels like they have had a small victory.
And the Marxist slowly take away your rights.
And Harry remembers that. Right now Harry has his eye on taking the House and keeping the Senate in the mid-terms. He knows a gun bill now is political poison. When/if the Dems control both houses, THEN Harry and DiFi will quickly ban guns. Count on it.
Not now, DiFi, wait until 2015...
It has served its purpose as cover for the bill they’re actually going to pass.
Here is hoping the House can stop it, because the ‘Pubbie pukes in the Senate won’t.
The one hand got its base all riled up and loving them because they were finally so tough on guns.
The other hand wants to preserve their majority in the senate.
They'll move the goal posts until enough people are fooled by their rhetoric, and then they'll become actual gun grabbers rather than gun grabber wannabes.
If a bill is pushed Boehner and the House had darn well better stop it.
Strategy II is now in play.
Tax the living bejeezus out of everything gun related to the point the tax becomes so punitive and the consequences of failing to pay the taxes so high, people will turn in guns.
This of course will not end well. Either way they will get what they want.
