US House indulges latest performative victim disarmament fantasy

“The House of Representatives on Friday passed a bill to ban assault-style [sic] weapons. The last-minute vote was announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Friday morning just hours before the chamber was set to break for a month-long recess. The legislation passed 217 to 213. Two Republican lawmakers — Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania and Chris Jacobs of New York — voted in support of the bill. … If enacted, the bill would make it a crime to knowingly import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess a semiautomatic assault [sic] weapon or a large capacity ammunition feeding device. But some of these weapons would be allowed to be grandfathered in. … it’s unlikely to advance in the Senate, where Democrats would need at least 10 Republican votes to overcome the filibuster [sic].” (07/29/22)
