Sen. Feinstein Says She Won't "Play Dead" Over Assault Weapons Ban

Sen. Dianne Feinstein says she won’t “lay down and play dead” on an assault weapons ban after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid revealed the California Democrat’s measure won’t be part of the Senate Democratic gun control plan.

“This is very important to me. And I’m not going to lay down and play dead. I think the American people have said in every single public poll that they support this kind of legislation. It’s aimed to protect children, to protect schools and malls. … Not to give me a vote on this would be a major betrayal of trust, as I would see it,” Feinstein said Tuesday on CNN.
