Nearly two decades after gunman’s SF massacre, Dianne Feinstein’s renewed outrage over assault “weapons of war”
Nearly two decades before the Aurora Colorado massacre, an assault weapon-toting madman’s massacre of eight people inside the 101 California highrise in San Francisco sent shock waves around the nation.
In the aftermath of that bloody day in 1993, California U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein became a leader in calling for an assault weapons ban.
This week, 19 years to the month later, Feinstein is speaking out on assault weapons, calling for a national “conversation” about their dangers — though she admits that politically, any reforms are unlikely to happen.
Colorado Theater Massacre: Wis. Sen. Johnson says guns are not the problem
(WEAU) – The mass shooting at a Colorado theater showing The Dark Knight Rises is once stirring the gun control debate in Washington.
On Sunday, U.S. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin defended the 2nd Amendment and gun rights.
“This isn’t an issue about guns. This is really an issue about sick, demented individuals. It’s a tragedy, and I don’t think there’s a solution in Washington to solve that problem, other than look to our families, look to our communities, starting with our education system. We’ve got to re-instill values in what we’re teaching our children. We need to look at families and the education system,” the Republican Senator said on Fox News Sunday.
