Obama and Biden Bitterly Clinging to Assault Weapons Ban

I don't get where this "majority of Americans" that want the assault weapon ban is coming from. Is Biden, Bloomberg, Cuomo, Obama, Feinstien, and Pelosi the majority of Americans?

The left always claims "the majority of Americans" agree with their policies whether it's true or not.

NE liberals favor a ban...and they are the only ones that matter to the media and pollsters.

Look, the NE is like any other region of the country. You only hear from the Boston's, New Yorks, Hartfords...ect. I live here. Once you get outside of 495 in Mass. your in a different world. Most people hunt, fish, golf, do the normal things americans do. They are americans, and distrust all government. If Governor Patrick ever makes the mistake of joining up with Napalitano, and ordering a bunch of MRAPS out into the state to "confiscate" everyone's firearms, there will be war. Plain and simple. This is where the original Revolution began, and we here in New England are proud of that heritage. We just have scumball politicians like most states. Ours are just more elitist, (Kennedy's) than most. We will resist. Count on it.

Democrat math. Which has no basis in fact.

It's the same math that Nancy Pelosi uses to come up with the figures that show food stamps and unemployment payments are the best way to bring about economic growth.

As I wrote earlier, despite Harry Reid choosing to only allow Dianne Feinsten to offer her assault weapons ban legislation as an amendment rather than giving it a full vote on the Senate floor (where it would fail thanks to a lack of Democratic support), President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden aren't giving up hope the ban will eventually pass.

Block: Let's start with the assault weapons ban that does appear to be dying in the Senate. Is the White House still pushing to have that passed? Do you assume that it's now not...
