Harry Reid Will Vote for DiFi's AWB
Majority Leader Harry Reid announced on the senate floor that he will vote for Sen. Feinstein's assault weapons ban amendment. (AWB)
“I believe you should have the right to own a gun,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “But you do not need an assault weapon to defend yourself and your property. Assault weapons have one purpose and one purpose alone, to kill a lot of people very quickly.”
Reid formerly opposed the AWB but has since changed his mind.
“That is why I will vote for Dianne Feinstein’s assault weapons ban because we must strike a balance between gun rights and protecting our children’s rights to live.”
DiFi's AWB is not expeted to pass the senate in a vote held later today.
