Sem-auto ban has rough road ahead, Grassley says

Posted: 02.03.13 04:00 PM

Sen. Charles E. Grassley, R Iowa, said vulnerable Senate Democratic incumbents could be the key to preventing an assault weapons ban from passing this year.In an interview on C SPAN's "Newsmakers"set to air Sunday, Grassley acknowledged that support for such a ban remains strong in some quarters of the Democratic Party, but he said he believes the electoral politics make it a difficult prospect at best."I feel that an outright ban would have a difficult time passing the [Republican run] House of Representatives, so that would keep it from becoming law," Grassley said. "But when you have five, six, maybe even seven Democratic senators from rural areas, that come from Second Amendment states ... I think that is a tough go in the Unites States Senate."
