WASHINGTON The weapon used to kill 17 people in last month's rampage at a high school in Parkland, Fla., Was banned from manufacture and sale in the United States for 10 years under a law written by Sen. Dianne Feinstein. 1994 legislation, which California Democrat wrote in response to shooting the year before at Law firm at 101 California. In San Francisco that killed eight people, prove to be a high-water mark for gun control. Bill was written to expire in 2004, and Congress allowed it to do just that and has enacted no gun restrictions in the 14 years since. Now Feinstein is pushing for a new ban, effort she began last fall after shooter killed 58 and injured 851 concertgoers in Las Vegas, and, in Parklands wake, Democratic leaders in Congress are embracing it. But the same questions that discouraged Congress from renewing the original ban are being raised again. A Federally funded study in 2004 found that the reduction in gun violence resulting from the ban was small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement. Just as it had done in 2004, National Rifle Association uses those results to quash Feinsteins efforts to revive the ban in 2013 after 20 children and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., And is using them now to ensure that it goes nowhere after Parkland shootings. Not all supporters of gun restrictions are fully supportive of Feinsteins ' push for a new assault weapons ban. They argue that the issue is too controversial and that her efforts detract from other approaches to gun violence, such as universal background checks that have more political support. Rep. Mike Thompson, D-. Helena, argued last month that assault weapons are much thornier to deal with, and attempt to ban them go beyond heavy lift. Feinstein acknowledged in an interview last week that the original ban wasnt perfect bill, but that newer studies show that the number of deaths involving assault weapons fell, as do number of mass shootings. I know that 10 years work, Feinstein say. I have to do this, I believe in it so strongly. She said airline pilot recently told her, My 7-year-old daughter came to me and say, I have to go to school, Daddy. Is this what we want America to be where youngsters 7 years old are scar to death to go to school, and teenagers are in fact getting killed in schools? Feinstein say. I dont understand how, if you want to do the right thing, why right thing isnt take these weapons of war off the streets so they ca be misuse. The Original legislation prohibited the manufacture and sale of new military-style assault weapons and large-capacity magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. These include the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle used in Parkland, Las Vegas and Newtown, as well as shootings in San Bernardino, Aurora, Colo., Orlando and Sutherland Springs, Texas.
