    Senators Boxer, Feinstein, Capps introduce gun bill

    Nearly two weeks after a mass shooting in Isla Vista, Calif., a trio of the state's Democratic lawmakers introduced federal legislation intended to keep guns out of the hands of people who pose a risk of committing violence.

    The Pause for Safety Act, sponsored by Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein with Rep. Lois Capps of Santa Barbara, would enable family members and others to seek a court order to stop a dangerous person from purchasing or possessing a firearm.

    "We must do everything in our power to keep firearms out of the hands of those who pose a serious risk of harm to themselves or to others," Feinstein said.

    that's a good bill - kids are more messed up now. 40 years ago if someone was mad at you, maybe he'd throw a rock at you - now, he'll shoot you in the head

    The NRA and their Republican puppets in Congress will never permit it.

    and when the Democrats controlled both Houses of Congress (for years), they didn't do a damn thing either, just stating the obvious

    The Democrats never controlled Congress absolutely for years. Please tell us the years of this recent control. Another Right Wing lie you guys keep repeating.

    I also don't consider the Blue Dog Democrats to be real Democrats. They were mostly Republicans with Democrat skin.
