Earlier today, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) announced she will be reintroducing “an updated assault weapons bill.” Kitty Felde wrote on the 89.3 KPCC (Southern California Public Radio) website this afternoon:
Dianne Feinstein announced Wednesday that she’s re-entering the battle over gun control during her keynote speech to the California delegates to the Democratic National Convention…
She promised California delegates she’d return to Congress to reintroduce “an updated assault weapons bill.”
(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)
Although Senator Feinstein is an ardent gun “control” supporter and is well-known for co-sponsoring the original assault weapons ban legislation signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1994, she recently said it was a “bad time” to press the gun “control” issue. Michael Ono wrote on The Note blog on the ABC News website on July 22:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, one of more outspoken gun-control advocates in Congress, said today that both Mitt Romney and President Obama should give the gun control issue a lot of “consideration,” but said now is a “bad time” to press the issue politically.
“I think that they should give it a lot of consideration, I think this is a bad time to embrace such a new subject,” the California Democrat said on “Fox News Sunday.” “There has been no action because there is no outrage out there, people haven’t rallied forward.”
