House Dems Ready For Gun Ban

At a glance

  • Hearing today will clear the way for a ban on AR and AK style rifles.
  • The bill would forbid the “sale, import, manufacture or transfer of certain semi-automatic weapons.” The ban would not include those who already own firearms.

  • It would also forbid the transfer of high-capacity ammunition magazines. Background checks would be mandatory to purchase “any future sale, trade or gifting of an assault weapon covered by the bill.” It also prohibits magazines and “other ammunition feeding devices,” that have over 10 rounds of ammunition, which permit shooters to fire rounds fast without having to reload the gun.
