Today Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-California, introduced a bill that would ban some military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.
Sen. Feinstein describes the 1978 shooting deaths of her colleagues that push her determination.
"I was the one that found supervisor Milk's body, and I was the one that put a finger in a bullet hole trying to get a pulse. Once you have been through one of these episodes, once you see what a crime scene is like, it isn't like the movies; it changes your view of weapons."
CNN's Dana Bash reports.

gun control obviously is not taking people guns away, it just un arms the men and women that want to protect themselves with either rapid fire or enough fire power to use before reloading again, and yes you can hunt with these so called assault weapons cause its a switch on these tools which options out to single, burst, and auto, i cant belive its a argument about gun control when they should ban nuclear weapons, how about the news reporters tell the government to stop building weapons that can take out everyone before anyone can react and to stop building chemical weapons, but i doubt anyone will go against the government, because there agenda are shaping mankind at this very moment, so yes gun ban will not succeed, and if it does its just a law a man wrote and documented, its gonna take more than that, and universal background checks is not close to stoping gun violence, communities addressing local gangs to do community service instead of doing the community harm is a much better approach, the people of this nation can end the violence by giving people of aggression and violence an oppurtunity to be active in there hometown and active in themselves, these tedious and violent people really just want a chance to a life without poverty and a life with caring citizens to inform them of what life have to offer, people of violence need to be address as a child calling out for help and need answers for a way out of the life of evil, i cant believe there is no logic supporters in this nation to handle this problem, the people can fix this, they just choose not to, a gun ban will solve nothing, i know exactly whats needed to end the gun violence, but it will take funding and support of active people in the streets, communties, businesses, and it all starts with the families in the homes of this nation.
