"The White House also has said it will try to revive the U.S. ban on assault weapons that expired in 2004 after being in effect for a decade. Democratic Senators Dianne Feinstein of California and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut are expected to introduce legislation on reviving the assault-weapons ban."
It doesn't matter what the White House said. They don't have the votes in the Senate. Biden knows this, as a veteran of the Senate.
I'll say it again. Vulnerable democrat senators are up for reelection in 2014. They won't touch the third rail.
This also has no chance in the House.
I don't see how this is so hard to understand.
