Senator Dianne Feinstein Thursday unveiled legislation to reintroduce an assault weapons ban similar to one that was allowed to expire in 2004.
The proposed ban includes 150 types of firearms, which looking to eliminate high-capacity magazines, includes certain handguns and shotguns that have removable ammunition-feeding devices.
With 10 different kinds of weapons at her side during the press conference, Feinstein, the California Senator who became San Francisco mayor in 1978 when mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated at City Hall, was the force behind the lapsed weapons ban.

Politisite was a pioneer in internet political news gathering and dissemination. Politisite came live in early 1998 and become the first internet only news source to cover local, state, and national political campaigns, debates and elections. Before there were the terms Blog, Blogger, New Media, or Crowd-sourcing, before Talking Points Memo (2000), Daily Kos (2002), the Huffington Post (2005), or Politico (2006), Politisite was developing what has become the standard in political news coverage long before most political sites were even conceived. The Name ‘Politisite” simply means Political Website.
