That’s actually not a pistol-grip if it is in front of the trigger guard.

I suspect Cruz should have used some tape and taped the plastic to the photo rather than holding it up. My guess is it has moved about while he is talking and not looking at the photo, assuming he knows where it goes in the first place.
But his point is valid in that it doesn’t change the weapon as to being more or less dangerous. JMO
They've got that covered in the bill: "(42) The term forward grip means a grip located forward of the trigger that functions as a pistol grip." So, even if it's not actually a pistol grip, if it functions as one in the mind of the Chief Libtard in Charge, it is one.
Worse, the Remington that Cruz is displaying could be banned under the act as having a pistol grip already: "(46) The term pistol grip means a grip, a thumb-hole stock, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip."
In the case of the Remington, the forward section of the stock is close enough to a "grip" to get it outlawed if the CLiC deems it so.
the point was well made.
remember the audience is leaky leahy, turbin durbin, and the communist media of pMSNBC types.
It also shows david gregory for a fool since the picture did the job so much better.
Fineswine has got that covered, she would also count "forward grips" as a qualifying (to be banned) feature.
Basically her bill would ban all semi-auto rifles and shotguns, save .22 LR with tubular magazines. Even my 10/22 would be banned.
She can come kiss my ass and (try to) get it.
