Senator Feinstein had experienced 2 assassinations as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors where Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk were killed while in office. In 1993, Feinstein, along with then-Representative [[Charles Schumer]] (D-NY) and Senator [[Ted Kennedy]] (whose lost 2 of his brothers to assassination), led the fight to ban many semi-automatic firearms deemed [[assault weapons]] and restrict the sale of larger capacity magazines. The ban was passed as part of the [[Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act]] of 1994. In 2004, when the ban was set to expire, Feinstein sponsored a 10-year extension of the ban as an amendment to the [[Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act]]; while the amendment was successfully added, the act itself failed.<ref name="Gun"/> The act was then revived in 2005, and, despite Feinstein's best efforts, was passed without an extension of the assault weapons ban. In response to the Sandy Hook school shootings which left 20 children killed, Sen. Feinstein has reintroduced legislation to reinstate the ban on assault weapons, as well as many more restrictions.<ref name=newban>{{cite web|first=NRA-ILA|title=Feinstein Goes For Broke With New Gun-Ban Bill|url=http://www.nraila.org/legislation/federal-legislation/2012/feinstein-goes-for-broke-with-new-gun-ban-bill.aspx|publisher=NRA|accessdate=27 December 2012}}</ref>

Discussing her failure in passing a ban on semi-automatic weapons, Feinstein said on CBS-TV's [[60 Minutes]], February 5, 1995, "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them .&nbsp;.&nbsp;. Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren't here."<ref name="Gun">{{cite news | url=http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2004/03/07/EDGIV5EQ6B1.DTL | title=2nd Amendment Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in | author=Chris W.
