Feinstein assault weapons ban bill stopped cold by … Harry Reid?

Looks like Sen. Dianne Feinstein will need to look elsewhere for someone to help ram her ridiculous “assault weapons ban” through. She won’t get any help from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid:

After a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Monday, a frustrated Feinstein said she learned that the bill she sponsored — which bans 157 different models of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines — wouldn’t be part of a Democratic gun bill to be offered on the Senate floor. Instead, it can be offered as an amendment. But its exclusion from the package makes what was already an uphill battle an almost certain defeat.

Well, shoot.

Hey dems, your senate leader Harry Reid just knocked down your plan. Are you proud #UniteBlue ? #AssaultWeaponsBan

At least a few are pretty upset with Reid:

Harry Reid doesn’t incl assault weapons ban in Senate version of gun control. He waffles on filibuster, now guns. He must retire in 2016

Guess they’ll have to demand a plan from someone else.

Hey #WeDemandAVote Harry Reid just torpedoed your entire Hollywood ad campaign..Be sure to thank him. #Lulz

Heh.

It’s important to remember, though, that even though some people may be tempted to pat Reid on the back:

I don’t always like Harry Reid, but when I do, he says no to Feinstein’s gun grabbing. Well done Harry.#tcot #NRA #guncontrol #gun

@nranews @politico Can’t believe I am saying this but, “thank goodness for Harry Reid.”

Harry Reid is still Harry Reid:
