WASHINGTON, DC -

A new article in the Washington Times details how D.C. Police Chief, Cathy Lanier, and other law enforcement agencies helped supply a Democrat senator assault weapons for a news conference promoting a ban on the firearms.

The problem is when Republicans asked for help getting guns to make their point they got a big no.

It was earlier this year when Senator Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California helped re-introduce an assault weapons ban.

But her opponents in the Senate didn't get the same help.
