Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein will have a “bunch of assault weapons on display” this morning when she unveils her new assault weapons ban, including a Bushmaster rifle, Democratic sources tell CNN.

Part of Feinstein’s goal is to convince opponents of an assault weapons ban – especially conservative Democrats – that these weapons are not necessary for average citizens to own.

Feinstein’s office “coordinated completely” with the Washington Metropolitan Police Department and U.S. Capitol Police for the display, CNN is told.

Feinstein, and several other Democratic lawmakers, are expected to introduce the gun control legislation Thursday–the first such measure since a December shooting rampage in Newton, Connecticut left 27 people dead, in addition to the gunman.
