    Default looks like the senate dropped ar and mag bans from their bill.

    It will surely come back up if repubs slide in the 2016 elections.

    It's on the news. DiFi's gun bill got the ax...as it was expected. The gun owners in the USA, along with those that believe in the 2nd amendment, have won this battle.

    My guess is there were far too many Democrat Senators wanting to get re-elected, and Dingy Harry couldn't find the votes, so he dissed the entire bill.

    Assault weapons ban won't be in Dems' gun bill
    By ALAN FRAM
    Associated Press


    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has decided that a proposed assault weapons ban won't be part of a gun control bill the Senate plans to debate next month, the sponsor of the ban said Tuesday, a decision that means the ban stands little chance of survival.Instead, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said she will be able to offer her ban on the military-style firearms as an amendment. Feinstein is all but certain to need 60 votes from the 100-member Senate to prevail, but she faces solid Republican opposition and likely defections from some moderate Democrats.

    "I very much regret it," Feinstein, D-Calif., told reporters of Reid's decision. "I tried my best."

    Feinstein, an author of the 1994 assault weapons ban that expired after a decade, said that Reid, D-Nev., told her of the decision on Monday.

    There are 53 Democrats in the Senate, plus two independents who usually vote with them.

    An assault-type weapon was used in the December massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., that revived gun control as a top issue in Washington. Banning those firearms was among the proposals President Barack Obama made in January in response to those slayings.

    The assault weapons ban was the most controversial of the major proposals to restrict guns that have been advanced by Obama and Senate Democrats. Because of that, it had been expected that the assault weapons measure would be left out of the initial package the Senate considers, with Democrats hoping the Senate could therefore amass the strongest possible vote for the overall legislation.

    Having a separate vote on assault weapons might free moderate Democratic senators facing re-election next year in Republican-leaning states to vote against the assault weapons measure, but then support the remaining overall package of gun curbs.

    Gun control supporters consider a strong Senate vote important because the Republican-run House has shown little enthusiasm for most of Obama's proposals.

    Feinstein said Reid told her there will be two votes.

    One would be on her assault weapons ban, which also includes a ban on ammunition magazines that carry more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The second would just be on prohibiting the high-capacity magazine clips.

    Many Democrats think the ban on large-capacity magazines has a better chance of getting 60 votes than the assault weapons ban.

    The Senate Judiciary Committee has approved four gun control measures this month, including Feinstein's barring assault weapons and high capacity magazines. The others would expand required federal background checks for firearms buyers, increase federal penalties for illegal gun trafficking and boost school safety money.

    I think it would have been even better to have let it go to a vote so that everyone knows where everyone stands. They might have dropped it to save face in the 2016 elections?

    AP is absolutely good enough. Just interesting that CNN hasn't felt moved to post it yet, but still has Piers Morgan spouting his drivel.
