The moron known as Senator Dianne Feinstein has proposed renewing the Assault Weapons Ban because of the murder recently of two Oakland police officers with an assault weapon. Feinstein said the ban would prevent such murders and would end the drug war in Mexico where allegedly American firearms are defeating the Mexican army and police. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/03/26/MN4D16MVF0.DTL
However, because Dianne Feinstein is a moron, she did not remember that California has an assault weapson ban, and had so since the early nineties. It apperantly did not prevent the murders that an assault weapons ban was supposed to prevent.
So, according to the radical left, an assault weapons ban would have prevented murders that never should have occured in the first place. Go figure.
