The Hill

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the lead sponsor of a federal assault weapons ban, says President Obama needs to take a more active role in pushing legislation to prohibit military-style weapons.
Feinstein says she wants Obama to match the effort former President Clinton made two decades ago to round up votes for the measure on Capitol Hill.
“Yes, I obviously would like it. I would appreciate anything he and other members of the White House and the Justice Department can do,” said Feinstein.
With Clinton’s help, Feinstein and her allies passed the federal assault weapons ban in 1994, which sunset 10 years later.
