http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/01/27/feinstein-nra-is-venal/?hpt=hp_t2 The headline itself is libelous. The NRA's lawyers need to go at this. Also, in the article, is the following quote from her: "There will be a package put together. If 'assault weapons' is left out of the package - and I'm a member of (the) Judiciary (committee), No. 2 in seniority - I've been assured by the majority leader I'll be able to do it as an amendment on the floor." That's a statement saying that she doesn't even care how voting goes, she'll get her way in the Senate, regardless. BTW - venal is basically a nice way of calling someone a corrupt whore.
