An alarmingly restrictive gun ban has been proposed by Democrats in the House of Representatives.
Rep. David Cicilline and 123 other Democrat members of the House of Representatives introduced H.R. 4269, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2015, a bill virtually identical to S. 150, introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in the Senate in 2013.
What is important to note is that this “Assault Weapons Ban” is much more restrictive than the 1994 ban. Democrats are going for the holy grail – anything semi-automatic that holds more than 10 rounds – including pistols.
The new ban proposed in H.R. 4269 is another story. It would prohibit the manufacture of most detachable-magazine semi-automatic rifles, numerous semi-automatic shotguns configured for defensive purposes, any semi-automatic rifle with a fixed magazine over 10 rounds (except for a tubular magazine .22), any semi-automatic pistol like the HK SP-89, any semi-automatic pistol with a fixed magazine over 10 rounds, revolving cylinder shotguns, various other named and described firearms, frames and receivers of banned guns, and ammunition magazines over 10 rounds, except those for tubular .22 rimfire rifles.
This bill is starting out with a good number of Democrats supporting it and if allowed to gather steam could pull in some blue state Republicans. Don’t let this gain momentum.
