Heh: Dianne Feinstein’s ‘assault weapons’ ban stopped by… Harry Reid

At some point before too long Senate Dems will have a pow-wow and figure out how to blame the Republicans for this:

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 didn’t.

Mr. Reid turned down her attempt to bring her ban on 157 different weapons and ammunition clips aboard the Democratic Party’s 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 it’s probably not going anywhere.

Feinstein must be wondering why Reid wants to keep it legal to hunt humans.

If you’re tempted to have one fleeting moment of appreciation for Harry Reid because of the above story, don’t.
