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.

At least a few are pretty upset with Reid:

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

Heh.

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

Harry Reid is still Harry Reid:

That’s good advice.
