While Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has declared that an assault weapons ban has no chance of passing, Vice President Biden says he is not giving up.

"I am still pushing that it pass. We are still pushing that it pass," Biden told NPR. "The same thing was told to me when the first assault weapons ban in 1994 was attached to the Biden Crime bill; that it couldn't possibly pass. It was declared dead several times....  And, so, I haven't given up on this."
