The Democrats have made clear what their first course of action will be when they take over the House of Representatives in January, which is gun control. After the California country bar shooting Democrats have switched their impeach Trump agenda to Remove guns agenda.
The Washington examiner points out,
Gun control proponents are buoyed by the takeover of the House. Democrats ousted at least 15 House Republicans who had an “A” rating with the National Rifle Association with candidates who received an “F” rating, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., told the Journal on Friday that he plans to introduce legislation that will mandate universal background checks. Thompson is chairman of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force.
Immediately after the Democrats won the House Nancy Pelosi declared Gun Control will be her main issue. “The American people deserve real action to end the daily epidemic of gun violence that is stealing the lives of our children on campuses, in places of worship and on our streets.”
It seems the Democrats will likely push to ban “Assault Rifles” and ending “Gun Show Loop Holes,” in an effort to create a registry. Never mind the fact neither of these terms are accurate terms used by Democrats, more in likely on purpose to create a wide range of gun banning.
These new laws will be passed in the House of Representatives almost instantly, but the plus side is Republicans hold a majority in the Senate and the bill will not pass in the Senate. In order to create new laws the bill must pass both House and Senate.
