Democrats In House Pass "Assault" Weapons Ban

As usual, Democrats are blaming the gun instead of the person firing it.

The House of Representatives passed an "assault rifle" ban bill that will head to the U.S. Senate where it, hopefully, will die. Contrary to what they say, there is no such thing as an "assault rifle".

Reuters reported:

WASHINGTON, July 29 (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday passed legislation banning assault-style rifles that have been used in mass shootings, sending it to the Senate where it faces likely defeat.

By a mostly partisan vote of 217-213, Democrats won passage of the measure amid public anger over mass murders in which rapid-fire AR-15 rifles were used to kill and wound school children and adults engaging in day-to-day activities.

"They're easier for a teenager to get than to buy a beer," Democratic Representative Lloyd Doggett said during debate. "We've turned our churches, our schools, our shopping centers, our entertainment venues, almost any place into a battleground with one massacre after another," he added.

Democrats have been trying for years to renew a federal ban on the weapon, which was first imposed in 1994 and expired in 2004.

The ban resulted in a significant decrease in mass shootings, according to a 2021 study by Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

Republicans have resisted, accusing Democrats of attacking the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which grants the right to "keep and bear arms."
