Senate Democratic leaders expect a gun bill to move to the Senate floor that includes most of the proposals backed by President Barack Obama, with the notable exception of a ban on military-style, semiautomatic weapons, a top aide to Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said.

Senate Democratic leaders expect a gun bill to move to the Senate floor that includes most of the proposals backed by President Obama as he prepares a push for his proposals in Minnesota on Monday. The bill would likely seek to limit the capacity of ammunition magazines; expand background checks to include sales at gun shows and other private transactions; and require better record keeping to keep guns out of the hands of those with mental illnesses. It would also try to curb gun sales in states with more relaxed gun laws to buyers in states with stricter laws.


Looks like a ban on AR-15's is unlikely. They will try and limit the magazine capacity but I doubt it would make it through the House. The gun-grabbers probably heard from their constituents and backed off from their hysterical, irrational calls for more gun control which would only take away the rights of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.
