All but ending chances for an assault weapons ban, Democratic leaders said Tuesday the firearms legislation the Senate will debate next month won’t include the provision that gun-control advocates pressed for after an assault-type weapon was used in the Newtown school shootings in December.
Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he wanted to bring a gun bill to the full Senate that would have enough support to overcome any GOP attempts to prevent debate from even starting. He expressed concern that including the assault weapons provision might effectively block passage of any bill at all.
Could it be the realization that people are buying weapons as fast as they can considering the reports of what the Obama administration is doing arming itself for possible citizen takeover?
I saw an article the other day talking about that private police force Obama had talked about but since Homeland Security seems to be doing this already citizens are concerned about not only spying on people but confiscation of weapons and possible prison time for speaking out against Obama.
It was not that long ago Homeland Security said that citizens of the U.S. such as rightwing groups and returning soldiers could target this administration.
