SAN FRANCISCO -- Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued the following statement on Senator Dianne Feinstein’s federal assault weapons legislation:

"Senator Feinstein's renewed call to reactivate the federal assault weapons ban and to ban high-capacity magazines is in the best interest of public safety. These weapons of war are too often used to take innocent lives and do not belong on our streets.  I was proud to stand with Senator Feinstein when she fought to restore the ban in 2004, and I am proud to stand with her again today."
