In the final weeks of 2012, Congresswoman Diana DeGette, who represents Denver, pushed for an immediate vote on a measure to ban high-capacity assault magazines
. The bill, she said, would be a sign of concrete action after twenty children were slaughtered in Connecticut
. But the chance for a vote never came. And today, the first day of the new session, DeGette is introducing it again -- and her staff says this time the measure could get legitimate bipartisan support.
