Feinstein's decision to run for a fifth full term sets up a 2018 Senate race that could be a cakewalk for her or could draw a strong primary challenger from the left.

Feinstein has taken a leading role in efforts against gun violence, sponsoring an assault weapons ban in the 1990s and more recently the proposed ban on the modification used in the Las Vegas shooting that allows a semiautomatic weapon to perform like an automatic. The devices, which were used in the attack that killed 58 people at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas on October 1, enable some rifles to be used like automatic weapons.

Feinstein's reelection bid was quickly endorsed by fellow California Senator Kamala Harris.

"Regulations aren't going to do it". She said if I could go door to door and pick them up I would. "We need a law", she said.

Giroud makes final Puskas Award shortlist
While Giroud will be confident of winning the award, it wasn't even deemed the best goal of the month in England. Previous winners of the award include Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, James Rodriguez and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

She "appreciated" the NRA's "step forward" after it came out and pressed the government to review regulations of bump stocks, but said a law banning the device must be passed by Congress.

Consequently, Feinstein is likely to face a fierce challenge from her left flank in the Democratic primary next year.

Feinstein is the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, where she has focused, often in futility, on gun control issues and immigration.
