Forget the automatic weapons ban, the House recently passed HR 1808 banning semi-automatic weapons
The text of the bill is here. Legislative action: Passed by the House on July 29, 2022, received by the Senate on August 1, 2022, read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. Roll call vote: 217 to 213 – 5 Democrats voted against this bill, 2 Republicans voted for it and one Republican did not vote. If the three Republicans had stood firm the bill would have failed.
