The so-called “assault” weapons ban that passed the House today had the help of two Republican traitors. But five Democrats stepped away from the madness and voted NO on this abomination.
The fictionally named “Assault Weapons Ban of 2022” passed by a vote of 217 for to 213 against, with only one Republican not voting.
Five Democrats decided not to support the bill.
Reps. Henry Cuellar and Vicente Gonzalez of Texas were notably among those, along with Rep. Jared Golden of Maine, Rep. Kurt Schrader of Oregon, and Rep. Ron Kind out of Wisconsin.
If they HAD voted NO it would have been 215 to 215. That would have killed it. So they own it.
Those are their Twitter links. Do let them know what you think.
And what the heck…
ANOTHER OPEN ONE.
