Posted on 11/08/2018 3:50:28 PM PST by Olog-hai
Newly ascendant Democrats are promising congressional action on gun control amid a rash of mass shootings, including a late-night assault at a California bar that killed 12 people.
Measures including expanded background checks and a ban on assault-style weapons are likely to reach the House floor when Democrats retake control after eight years of Republican rule.
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, said Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, the Democratic leader who is running for a second stint as House speaker.
Pelosi vowed to push for a range of actions to stem gun violence, including restrictions on high-capacity magazines and a measure allowing temporary removal of guns from people deemed an imminent risk to themselves or others.

Wonderful, show us where you stand.
DOA in the Senate. More Democrat grandstanding.
When guns are outlawed... only OUTLAWS will have Guns!
That’s why there’s two parties, a president and a Supreme Court :)
Blah-Blah-Blah. Same old, same old.
We don’t have a ‘gun’ problem - we have a MENTAL HEALTH and JIHAD problem! Why not tackle THOSE two issues?
I thought that Senator Kamala had taken care of the gun problem in Cali. Funny also that these things don’t happen in Maine or New Hampshire or the Dakotas or elsewhere like that.
Yes, because more gun laws for criminals to ignore are going to stop them.
CA already has;
Mandatory gun registration
Universal background checks
All sales thru FFLs
10 day waiting period
Assault weapons ban
No Mags over 10 rounds
Permits, registration to buy ammo (January)
Drop a dime on relatives to get their guns taken away
The list is a lot more than this.
Waste of their time and effort, but hey the crazies are in charge no. Watch out for how they use the power of the purse.
Typical Leftist response when their stupid laws fail: We did not pass enough laws that were strict enough.
That is how you end up with tens of millions dead in the gulags.
They cannot ever accept that their base assumptions about the universe are wrong.
Took longer than expected. What does squire hogg have to say?
Thanks to democrats everyone at that club was a helpless fish in a barrow. No if they can just take the guns away from the ex military personnel that will fix everything.
I’ll control the firearms I own. Government at every level can kiss my ass. They’ve murdered many, while I’ve never harmed a single human being. I do however value my gun rights (endowed by my creator) more than I value the lives of stinking democrats. When my government has less respect for the rights of the human trash that plague our streets than they do mine (they’re a Democrat constituency group doncha’ see) then perhaps I’ll take them more seriously.
Pass a couple of laws that don’t mean anything that nobody would obey then strut around saying they did something for gun control.
Well then it sems the only approach that works is total gun confiscation as done in Britain and Australia. /s
Starting already, good.
