    This was forwarded to me this morning on Twitter:
    "JUST IN: Sen. Feinstein and Senate Democrats introduce bill to ban assault weapons"
    https://twitter.com/nbcpolitics/status/928294858007212032

    I'm still looking for the actual SB now on Congress.gov, but I have not been able to confirm that this is legit.

    Reading the screen shots on the NBC Twit feed, it sounds just like the CA ban that was just shoved down those poor saps throats, except with the 'concession' that those that have them, can keep them; (riiiiiiiight).

    Has anyone else heard about this?

    Probably based off this.... (I'll paste it to spare anyone needlessly seeing her fugly face)

    EDIT--- Just realized this was contained in the NBC link too.. oh well, I'll keep it posted so no one has to click on either. :)

    From the above link:
    “And the numbers continue to grow. Between 1988 and 1997, 125 were killed in 18 mass shootings. The next decade, 1998 to 2007, 171 were killed in 21 mass shootings. And over the last 10 years, 2008 to 2017, 437 were killed in 50 mass shootings.

    “That’s 89 mass shootings in the last 30 years that snuffed out the lives of more than 700 people. Additionally, many police officers killed in the line of duty are killed by assault weapons, including 1 in 5 officers killed in 2014.

    While all of the above deaths are horrible, the numbers pale in comparison to many other causes including motor vehicle and opioid deaths.

    Sounds like the Bill she introduced several years ago. I’m guessing they just pulled that sorry-assed piece of legislation off the shelf, dusted it off and resubmitted it.

    Doesn't look like Trump will be backing any such legislation. Rs are already terrified of losing their jobs so I don't see them getting behind or anywhere near this.

    I went to her link too, and her mug was prominently displayed.. I felt like I was going to vomit. Thanks for posting the link. I heard about it again this morning on some Lamestream channel the Gym had tuned in.. I still feel some letter writing is in order, just so the Rs don't forget what I need them to do here. I can't wait for that old hag Feinswine to retire.
