Democrats Drop Assault Weapons Ban

Senate Democrats have dropped a proposed assault weapons ban in hopes of garnering broader support for banning high-capacity magazines, reports Fox News.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said she was disappointed, when Harry Reid (D-Nev.) informed her that President Obama's gun-control efforts would focus on magazines with 10 or more rounds. Feinstein has promised to offer the ban as an amendment.

Feinstein has led the gun-control charge since the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. She hoped to pass a new assault weapons ban that would target a broader range of weapons than the Assault Weapons Ban that expired in 2004.

The bill cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee last week on a 10-8 party-line vote. Reid had said such a bill would not likely garner 60 Senate votes.
