Gun Control

Gun Legislation May Come by February

Assault weapons ban seems unlikely though


The Senate Judiciary Committee will have a new gun control bill ready to go by the end of February, but don't look for an assault weapons ban just yet.

Following an at times emotionally charged hearing on Wednesday that included an appearance by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) said he plans to complete work on a bill by the end of next month.
