Until they do.
The Stoneman Douglas High School shooting has emboldened the media and the left with child victims. Democrats in the House of Representatives have now taken the first step.
While many on the left have demonized the .223 caliber Armalite 15 semi-automatic rifle, the language in the bill goes much further.
The bill prohibits the “sale, transfer, production, and importation” of semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can hold a detachable magazine, as well as semi-automatic rifles with a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Additionally, the legislation bans the sale, transfer, production, and importation of semi-automatic shotguns with features such as a pistol grip or detachable stock, and ammunition feeding devices that can hold more than 10 rounds.
Cicilline’s legislation names 205 specific firearms that are prohibited, including the AK-47 and AR-15.
“Assault weapons were made for one purpose,” Cicilline said in a statement. “They are designed to kill as many people as possible in a short amount of time. They do not belong in our communities.”
Uh huh. Wonder where they got the idea they are designed to kill as many as possible? From none other than the most authoritative source on guns.
But remember, they are not after your guns! They just want to protect children in schools.
Like they do the residents of South Chicago.
