Gun Control Week: Legislators set to Roll out Numerous Gun Control Bills This Week

On the heels of the inauguration, Federal Legislators are set to roll out a number of gun control bills this week. The First in a long line of bills are two companion bills that will ban magazines that hold over 10 rounds of ammunition.

New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg and New York Rep. Carolyn McCarthy introduced two bills earlier this morning that if passed will ban any magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The proposals are the first of a number of gun control bills which are expected to be introduced this week.

Later in the week, Senator Diane Feinstein is expected to introduce her Assault Weapons Ban which could ban almost all modern rifles. Feinstein, who once told reporters that if she could she would pass a law to confiscate everyone’s guns, is expected to put forth one of the most restrictive gun control bill in the history of our country.

Here she is in her own words from when she passed the first assault weapons ban.
