Senator Dianne Feinstein of California will introduce an "assault weapons" ban today on Capitol Hill. Yesterday, Feinstein touted the announcement on Twitter:
Tomorrow I will introduce my assault weapons legislation. Weapons of war do not belong on our streets. #AWB2013— Sen Dianne Feinstein (@SenFeinstein) January 24, 2013
And so did her Democratic colleague from Connecticut, Chris Murphy:
Already CNN reporter Dana Bash is touting the introduction as "Must see tv." According to Bash, Senator Feinstein "will have lots of assault weapons at her big event calling for a ban. And yes, she got permission from dc."
