'I think it's not likely to pass the Senate or the House and be signed into law.'

BY:

Sen. Tom Carper (D., Dela.) appeared on Inside Story Sunday morning and admitted that the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 that he co-sponsored with Sen. Diane Feinstein (D., Cali.) will likely not pass Congress and be signed into law.

Feinstein introduced the new ban in response to the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that would ban “military-style assault weapons”

ANCHOR: The assault weapons ban in the 80s’ and 90s, did it work?

TOM CARPER: Most people said it didn’t work. I think we’ll co-sponsor the legislation, I think it’s the right thing to do. I think it’s not likely to pass the Senate or the House and be signed into law.
