House Passes Controversial Gun Control Bill

Gun Control Bill PASSES – They’re Coming For The 2nd Amendment!

( – In the wake of the Uvalde mass shooting at an elementary school, Democrats are using their majority in the House to make a case to voters why they should remain in the majority this fall. Is it working? On Wednesday, June 8, the House passed a gun control law along party lines with no hope of getting past the evenly divided Senate, which requires a minimum of 60 votes to pass the upper chamber. That didn’t stop House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from declaring that the House vote would make history by making progress.

The House bill sought to do several things that Conservatives find objectionable and would include:

  • Raising the legal age to own a semi-automatic gun purchase from 18 years of age to 21
  • Making it illegal to sell ammunition magazines with a 15-round capacity or more.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) argued that the answer to gun violence isn’t to destroy the Second Amendment but noted that’s been the Democratic Party’s objective for years.

The House bill passed after a new poll said Americans don’t support a ban on assault weapons. On Tuesday, Quinnipiac University released an interesting survey on America’s changing attitudes towards assault guns. In February 2018, after the Parkland school shooting in Florida, 67% said they supported banning assault weapons. On Tuesday, that number came down significantly to 50%. That’s an all-time low since Quinnipiac started asking the question in 2013.

So, where do you stand on the issue?
