Dianne Feinstien’s wet dream to ban ugly weapons, yet again, has died a well deserved death at the hands of none other than Dirty Harry Reid, from Politico:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said on Monday that a controversial assault weapons ban will not be part of a Democratic gun bill that was expected to reach the Senate floor next month.
After a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Monday, a frustrated Feinstein said she learned that the bill she sponsored — which bans 157 different models of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines — wouldn’t be part of a Democratic gun bill to be offered on the Senate floor. Instead, it can be offered as an amendment. But its exclusion from the package makes what was already an uphill battle an almost certain defeat
Feinstein’s AWB never had any steam in the first place.

Reax, William Teach, Pirate’s Cove:
In fact, S.150 is supported by only 21 other Senate Democrats, none of them named Harry Reid, which is a pretty low number considering how quickly Democrats attempted to use the Sandy Hook tragedy to assault 2nd Amendment Rights. Reid also knows that the Some Scary Looking Guns bill will most likely not make it past a filibuster.
I call to question Feinstein’s inference that she was as smart a sixth grader. Would a intelligent sixth grader stake a do or die line in the sand with a mere twenty-one supporters. Feinstien can neither count nor persuade.
