Professor Winkler Comments on Exclusion of Assault Weapons Ban from Senate Bill in Los Angeles Times Article


​March 20, 2013 -- Professor Adam Winkler commented on the exclusion of Senator Feinstein's proposed assault weapons ban from the Senate bill on gun control. His comments appear in a Los Angeles Times article.

"Banning assault weapons was always a long shot," said Adam Winkler, a UCLA law professor and author of "Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America." "Gun control advocates will be disappointed, but dropping Sen. Feinstein's proposal may make it easier for the other proposals, like background checks, to gain passage."
