IT BEGINS:  First Gun Control Bill Passes House of Representatives

The Democratic Party has made no qualms about their desire to exploit our nation’s crises in an effort to further their agenda, and the latest tragedy in Uvalde, Texas certainly fits that description.

After 19 children were gunned down by a crazed teen at Robb Elementary School, the liberal left began their push for stricter gun control measures almost immediately.

Now, just two weeks after the massacre, the House of Representatives has passed a bill that could dramatically alter the way in which firearms are purchased in the United States.

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.

And that wasn’t all…

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

While this particular bill isn’t expected to pass the Senate, it is but one piece of a much larger push by the Democratic Party to adjust the parameters of the Second Amendment.
