As I reported yesterday, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) played the role of being upset with Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) for all but dismissing her assault weapons ban bill from reaching the floor of the Senate for a vote. However Gun Owners of America warn that this is simply a way to pass the ban in an easier manner.
In an interview with WND, Mike Hammond, chief counsel for Gun Owners of America, said, “”It’s a trap! It’s a non-event. What’s going to happen is they’re going to take another bill, and that could be the veterans’ gun ban and then bring that to the floor.”
The reason for breaking the assault weapons ban bill up is to get 60 votes to open debate on the Senate floor.
Once that happens, it is Hammond’s thoughts that they will then put forward Feinstein’s assault weapons ban as some kind of amendment to Reid’s bill.
“Furthermore, they’ll probably break off a magazine ban and offer that as an amendment to that. Furthermore, they’ll probably take a universal gun registry and offer that as an amendment to that,” said Hammond.
