Senator Murphy: Congress ready for ban on assault weapons, high-capacity magazine clips
Sen. Chris Murphy on Sunday said there is growing momentum in Congress for a ban on so-called assault weapons, saying lawmakers’ attitudes toward gun control have changed significantly in the wake of last month’s shooting rampage in Newtown, Conn.

“This issue is going to continue to move,” Mr. Murphy, Connecticut Democrat, said on CNN’s “State of the Union. “I do think that even in the Democratic caucus you see members like [Sens.] Joe Manchin and Mark Warner who previously probably never would have considered a ban on assault weapons or high-capacity magazine clips now coming to the table.”

Mr. Murphy added that even some Republicans in the House, including Rep. Phil Gingrey of Georgia, have suggested they would consider universal gun background checks for firearms purchases and bans on high-capacity magazine gun clips.

“That’s a sea change, if people like that in the Republican House caucus are willing to look at this,” Mr. Murphy said.

from another post
WASHINGTON — The powerful gun lobby is gauging enough support in Congress to block a law that would ban assault weapons, despite promises from the White House and senior lawmakers to make such a measure a reality.

Senators plan to introduce a bill that would ban assault weapons and limit the size of ammunition magazines, like the one used in the December shooting massacre that killed 27 people, most of them children, in Newtown, Conn. Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California has promised to push for a renewal of expired legislation.

The National Rifle Association has so far prevented passage of another assault weapons ban like the one that expired in 2004. But some lawmakers say the Newtown tragedy has transformed the country, and Americans are ready for stricter gun laws. President Barack Obama has made gun control a top priority. And on Tuesday Vice President Joe Biden is expected to give Obama a comprehensive package of recommendations for curbing gun violence.

Still, the NRA has faith that Congress would prevent a new weapons ban.

“When a president takes all the power of his office, if he’s willing to expend political capital, you don’t want to make predictions. You don’t want to bet your house on the outcome. But I would say that the likelihood is that they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this Congress,” NRA president David Keene told CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., responded with a flat out “no” when asked on CBS’ “Face the Nation” whether Congress would pass a ban on assault weapons.

Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, a lifelong member of the NRA has said everything should be on the table to prevent another tragedy like Newtown. But he assured gun owners he would fight for gun rights at the same time. “I would tell all of my friends in NRA, I will work extremely hard and I will guarantee you there will not be an encroachment on your Second Amendment rights,” Manchin said on ABC’s “This Week.”

The NRA’s deep pockets help bolster allies and punish lawmakers who buck them. The group spent at least $24 million in the 2012 elections — $16.8 million through its political action committee and nearly $7.5 million through its affiliated Institute for Legislative Action.

Well there it is. The Lawmakers, not the US citizens that pay them their fat salaries, have decided for those Millions of Little Americans that guns are bad for them because THEIR 'Attitudes' have changed while watching a wide screen TV at their exclusive, financially segregated and safe, Country Clubs.

One Lawmaker said: "One must ensure that those little taxpayers at the front-line of violent crime should learn Kung-Fu instead of owning guns...My staff all know Kung-Fu, and have no firearms that I've noticed...When I get bored being safe in my 15 Bedroom Cottage, I gather the security together and we all jazz-a-cise to my favorite tune..



It's such jolly gay fun!

This is complete disinformation.

There will be no AWB.

There will be no HICAP ban

There will be no closing the erroneously named "gun show" loophole.

There will be nothing, absolutely nothing that is going to make it to the dictators desk that is anything more than a few hollow, feel good, completely irrelevant laws, conjured up to make it seem like the commies are "doing something" about gun control.
