Five reasons it's too soon to declare victory on Congress' "draconian" gun ban
From LewRockwell.com:

Following news that Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) would not include Sen. Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA) 2013 Assault Weapons Ban in a package of gun control bills to be reviewed by the full Senate next month, journalist and pundits around the country claimed that the National Rifle Association and gun owners had won, that the draconian measure that banned 157 modern sporting rifles by name and magazines that hold over 10 rounds of ammo was kaput.
Here are several headlines:

Breitbart.com: "NRA Defeats Media: Assault Weapons Ban Goes Down in Flames"
Washington Times: "RIP National ĎAssault Weapon' Ban"
The New Yorker: "The NRA Wins Again"
The Blaze: "Fein-Stymied: Assault Weapons Ban Wonít Even Make it into Final Gun Control Bill"

Well, I'm here to tell you that the sun has not set on Feinstein's AWB, that the fat lady has not started to sing, that while it may be in critical condition, the AWB still has a pulse. There exists a possibility, no matter how slim it seems right now, that a federal ban on 'assault weapons' becomes law...
