Feinstein gun bill

"About two-thirds of Americans think 'assault weapons' fire faster than other guns, hold more rounds, or use higher-caliber ammunition, according to a recent Reason-Rupe Public Opinion Survey. Yet, if you read the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013, which was introduced last month by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), you will see that the firearms she wants to ban are not distinguished by any of those characteristics. Contrary to common belief, the definition of 'assault weapon' is based on mostly cosmetic features that have little or nothing to do with a gun's deadliness in the hands of a criminal. Feinstein's bill is just the latest iteration of this long-running public policy fraud."
