Wicomico Sheriff Speaks Out On Proposed Assault Weapons Ban

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - Chances appear slim that Congress will approve the assault weapons ban.  Senate Democratic leaders removed that provision from the firearms legislation the Senate will debate next month.

California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, who sponsored the provision, says she's disappointed by the decision to remove it from the gun bill, but Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis, a supporter of maintaining 2nd Amendment Rights sees this as a positive step.

"It's a tremendous victory," says Lewis, "banning weapons of any kind to include assault weapons would do absolutely nothing to curb crime, and deter further acts of violence on citizens her in the state of Maryland."

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said in a CNN interview that The President is not giving up on the assault weapons ban being added  as an amendment, saying it "deserves a vote."
