Radical New Gun Control Measures Pass The House


It should come as no surprise that the Democratic Party is raring to get strict new gun control measures passed in the coming days, as the sympathetic window of opportunity following the Uvalde massacre will soon pass.

This isn’t your author being cruel, mind you; this is the well-worn ethos of the liberal side of the aisle.  They’ve often admitted themselves that they’d rather not let a good crisis go to waste.

Now, just two weeks after the death of 19 children at the hands of a deranged teen in Texas, the House of Representatives has passed a bill down partisan lines that would drastically change the gun sales landscape in America.

House lawmakers on Wednesday vote to set the minimum age to buy semi-automatic weapons at 21 in response to a string of high-profile shootings.

The legislation passed 223-204, mostly along party lines. It has little chance of clearing the Senate as it pursues negotiations focused on improving mental health programs, bolstering school security and enhancing background checks.

The bill would also prohibit the sale of ammunition magazines with a capacity of more than 15 rounds.

And while the bill is not expected to pass the Senate, there are likely several more iterations of different such bills being debated as we speak, and the current mood in Washington does appear to be shifting toward making some changes to the Second Amendment.
