Yes, they are coming for your guns.
Despite years of denials that “no one is coming for your guns,” the Democrats running the powerful House Judiciary Committee, led by Chairman Jerrold Nadler, have just passed the first federal assault weapons ban bill in decades. Turns out the only truthful Democrat was Beto O’Rourke, who said the quiet part out loud when he stated “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” Fox News’s Brie Stimson reports:
The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday moved a bill banning assault weapons forward but it’s unclear if the legislation has enough support to pass a floor vote.
Democratic Reps. Jared Golden, D-Maine, and Henry Cuellar, D-Texas have said they won’t support the bill while Republican Reps. Chris Jacobs, R-N.Y., and Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., have said they are open to voting for a ban, according to The Hill. House Democrats have a four-vote margin.
The Assault Weapons Ban of 2021 was advanced in a 25-18 vote but a date for a vote on the House floor has not been set.
“As we have learned all too well in recent years, assault weapons — especially when combined with high-capacity magazines — are the weapon of choice for mass shootings,” committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., said during the bill’s markup. “These military-style weapons are designed to kill the most people in the shortest amount of time. Quite simply, there is no place for them on our streets.”
Ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, argued the bill would take away upstanding gun owners’ rights.
“Democrats know this legislation will not reduce violent crime or reduce the likelihood of mass shootings, but they are obsessed with attacking law-abiding Americans’ Second Amendment liberties,” he said.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said, “They’re coming for your guns.”
Action Line: If Democrats in the Senate successfully destroy the filibuster, you can say goodbye to legally owning an AR-15, an AK-47, and probably any other gun if they get their way.
