House Democrats Pass Scary Looking Rifle Ban Bill

It’s simply an exercise in how to waste time and please your unhinged base

House passes assault weapons ban that’s doomed in the Senate

The House passed legislation Friday that would ban assault weapons for the first time since 2004, in a sign that Democrats intend to pursue more aggressive gun violence prevention measures after a spate of mass shootings.

The bill passed in a largely party-line vote of 217-213, with two Republicans voting for the measure and five Democrats opposing it.

The level of GOP opposition indicates the bill is unlikely to advance in the evenly split Senate, where it would require the support of at least 10 Republicans to defeat a guaranteed filibuster. It’s also not clear if the measure has the support of all 50 Senate Democrats.

The legislation, authored by Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., would criminalize the knowing sale, manufacture, transfer, possession or importation of many types of semi-automatic weapons and large-capacity ammunition feeding devices.

Two of the Democrats were from Texas, Reps. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, and Vicente Gonzalez, D-McAllen, and obviously understand that this won’t go over well in their districts. And that there’s almost a zero chance of it passing in the Senate. Unless a couple of the squishes in the GOP, such as Romney, Murkowsky, Susan Collins, join Democrats.

If the GOP has any brains they would submit amendments, or, better, legislation, that would take all the same weapons from the law enforcement that protects Congress, Biden, Kamala Harris, and appointed Executive Branch officials. Especially the icky automatic ones. I’m sure Biden and all the Democrats would be OK with that, right?

(NRA) NRA-ILA Executive Director Jason Ouimet released the following statement on Friday regarding the passage of H.R. 1808:

“Barely a month after the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen, gun control advocates in Congress are spearheading an assault upon the freedoms and civil liberties of law-abiding Americans. The promises made in HR 1808 are nothing short of a lie based on willful ignorance of the disastrous 1994 Clinton Gun Ban which failed to produce any significant drop in crime. With more than 24 million potentially-banned firearms in common use, these draconian restrictions fall in blatant opposition to the Supreme Court’s rulings in BruenCaetano v. Massachusetts, and DC v. Heller. Their refusal to recognize this reality places everyone at risk. Any legitimate attempt to address our nation’s surge in violent crime cannot commence until anti-gun legislators step away from the radicals who defund our police departments, support prosecutors who refuse to prosecute dangerous criminals, and promote no cash bail policies that have turned once proud communities into a playground of lawlessness and fear.”

You know what’s actually going to happen? The sale of these firearms will skyrocket over the next few weeks.

    So, if the two “Republicans” voting for the measure had been sensible, and voted against it, the bill would have failed in a 215-215 vote, right?

    Alas, no! The Speakess of the House normally does not vote, unless a measure is tied, at which point, she casts a tie-breaking vote.

    Cap’n Teach, the sales of these types of firearms and components has been skyrocketing for years. Currently, inventories remain low and production is at maximum. This is good for American manufacturing as most of the arms and their components are manufactured domestically, often in small shops. There is some offshore, particularly in low end parts, but even the high end European brands have North American production facilities. The democrats care more about their criminal constituents and totalitarian ideals than they do about the American worker and citizen.

    Sorry Larry but he’s not a backstabber. If you know anything about leftists be they democrats, communists, Nazis, socialists or any of the other vermin they are never to be trusted to support freedom. He was just doing what his DNA dictated he should do.

    Mx Teach is lying to you, repeatedly. Why do you suppose those pesky mass shooters prefer the AR-15 style rifle (aka Modern Sporting Rifle – MSR) over a hunting rifle?

    It’s so simple even Teach should understand. This rifle platform and the .223 cartridge were designed and developed to kill soldiers in battle. The clumsy, 4 shot, wooden hunting rifle was not.

    Anyway, only insecure pussies own MSRs. You’re foolish if you think they’re good “self-defense” firearms. Hunting prairie dogs and other “varmints” with MSRs is silly.

    Banning them offers more pros than cons.
