Dianne Feinstein takes assault weapons ban to the people with petition
KPCC – Democratic U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein of California has promised to re-introduce an assault weapons ban when the new Congress is sworn in. But she’s not waiting until January to push for public support.
Senator Feinstein has sent out an e-mail blast, asking supporters to sign a petition to back her ban on assault weapons. Feinstein says she wants to show “how much public support is behind” such a ban.
Feinstein says it isn’t about taking away anyone’s constitutional right to bear arms: “This is about removing weapons of war from our businesses, movie theaters and schools.”
