Senate Dems Poised to Advance Gun Ban, Seek Obama's Help in NRA Battle

FYI ...Frankenstein is merely an Otool.

WASHINGTON – The sponsor of an assault weapons ban is conceding that she'll need lots of help from President Barack Obama and others for the proposal to have a chance of surviving in the Senate.

The Democratic-led Senate Judiciary Committee seemed certain to approve the measure Thursday, probably on a party-line vote. But once it reaches the full Senate -- probably in April -- the measure appears destined for defeat, thanks to opposition by Republicans and some moderate Democrats, as well.

"I'd like to see everybody doing more," bill sponsor Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday when asked if she'd like more assistance from Obama. "Yes, absolutely, we need help. We have the 800-pound gorilla out there" -- a reference to the potent National Rifle Association.

Obama made an assault weapons ban part of the gun curbs he proposed in January, a month after a shooter with an assault rifle killed 20 first-graders and six educators at a school in Newtown, Conn. Feinstein and others have argued that such firearms are used in a disproportionate number of mass shootings and shouldn't be available to civilians.
