    given the list of people there, this is a one sided press release which is not worth watching.

    From the link, looks more like a news conference than a debate. Still might be worth watching to see what actually was included in the Bill.

    I doubt you'll see a floor debate anytime soon. This will be referred to committee where it may die a slow death, even in the D controlled Senate.

    The committee may pass it out to appease the anti-gun folks, but I don't see this getting a floor vote.

    I'm not sure I have enough blood pressure medication for it.

    Wait a minute...I don't pay too much attention to the other senators (I'll be honest), but the list is all democrat, from California, Illinois, New York, Connecticut, and Colorado?

    That's more one-sided than a mobius strip.

    The list is those announcing the bill. This doesn't appear to be a debate, just the bill annoucement.

    It's starting right now.

    They have a wall full of scary looking guns.

    Feinstein introduced all the people supporting it.

    Now, some preacher is telling us these are middle of the road and common sense measures.

    Now, Feinstein is rambling about holding at the hip and spray-firing. You'd think after 20 years of crusading against these things, she'd at least learn how to someone shoots one.

    Assault weapons are apparently intended to hold from the hip and spray fire everywhere. Someone has been watching too many movies...

    She doesn't seem to realize 99% of the shooting sites she keeps mentioning were gun-free zones.

    Oh this is going to be good. :rolleyes:

    They are middle-of-the-road. They're between what the senators think they'll get and what they want.

    Am I the only person here, who sees an anti ad with a wall of AR-15s, and thinks "I wish I could afford those..."

    Here's the legislation Feinstein mentioned

    Prohibiting 158 specifically-named models. (She is claming they are more powerful and more dangerous than in 1994)

    Banning semis with 1 military characteristic.

    Ban "slide-iron" [slide-fire, I assume] stock, thumbhole stocks, bullet button

    Fixed magazines over 10 rounds

    Import ban on assault weapons and hi-cap mags

    No sunset

    Will not affect hunting and sporting firearms, protecting 2200 named weapons

    2nd Amendment wasn't about hunting or sporting. This bill is unconstitutional.

    Now McCarthy is rambling as usual. You aren't getting a blow-by-blow on her nonsense. Sorry.

    She is going on about 3 and 5 round limits for hunters.

    McCarthy talking about duck and deer hunting....as if that's relevant to our rights.

    It's not even going to make it out of the senate. They need to quit putting words in NRA members mouths.

    When she mentions their viewpoint, it's all about safety.

    When she talks about our rights, she only mentions hunting.


    If they're not in the stores they can't be bought -- oh really McCarthy? Really? She should just stick to the script..

    Sometimes I wonder if our honorable senators and representatives that are in their golden years ought to be subjected to regular testing to ensure that they are in complete control of their mental facilities.
