Feinstein Fights to Reinstate Assault Rifle Law

San Francisco Chronicle Reports

Excerpt: California Sen. Dianne Feinstein renewed one of Washington's long- running and most bitterly fought battles Friday, saying she will introduce legislation seeking to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban that expired in September after 10 years.

Gun control has been a signature issue for Feinstein since she arrived in the Senate in 1993. But the odds she faces to pass the weapons ban in the current Congress are probably steeper than they were in 1993, when the Senate narrowly approved the ban, or last March, when it passed 52-47 before dying in the body.

.............. "This time, I hope for the safety of all Americans, President Bush, Senate Majority Leader (Bill) Frist and Speaker Hastert will help re-enact this important legislation," she said.

In disclosing her decision, Feinstein cited the shooting deaths Thursday of two Los Angeles city workers by a co-worker apparently armed with an AK-47 rifle as an example of why the law is needed.

"Once again, we've seen the tragic consequence of the ready availability of assault weapons throughout our society,'' she said.
