      •  Diane Feinstein's last assault weapon ban (1+ / 0-)

        was remarkably ineffective. There was a 60 Minutes report about it.

        I hope that they do better this time.

        •  She wasn't able to get the big clips last time. (0+ / 0-)

          If we banned everything with more than a 5-round magazine and limited new rifle sales to bolt-actions, that would be a start.

          The attackers are not sane people. Breivik, Loughner, the rest of them -- those two and most of the rest are paranoia schizophrenics.

          They do not live in sane worlds.

          And we need to do buy-backs on the more lethal of the assault rifles. If that takes a billion dollars, O.K. fine.
