Skip to comments.Republicans and Dems get into fierce debate on assault weapons ban: GOP Senators say Indiana Good Samaritan mall shooting shows why guns ARE needed as activist David Hogg gets KICKED OUT

Gun control was yet again a key focus on Capitol Hill Wednesday when the Senate Judiciary Committee debated mass shootings and the House Judiciary marked up an assault weapons ban for the first time in two decades.
The Democratic-controlled House panel debated legislation that would ban certain assault-style rifles like the ones used in a recent spate of mass shootings while their Republican colleagues argued doing so would make communities less safe by leaving law-abiding citizens unarmed in dangerous situations.
The House Judiciary is also debating a second bill that would lift immunity for gun manufacturers, allowing them to be sued for unlawful misuse of firearms.
Even if both bills clear the House, they are unlikely to make it through the Senate.
'Will our Republican colleagues choose to defend the weapons of choice for mass murderers?' Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., asked.
Meanwhile in the Senate Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering pleaded lawmakers to enact a federal assault weapons ban. Her community faced seven deaths and dozens of injuries when a gunman opened fire on a 4th of July parade.
Rotering outlined the horrific moments she witnessed that day.
'A photo of a teary-eyed toddler clutching a blanket flashed on my phone. Whose child was this? People were hiding in an underground garage wondering why nobody was looking for this missing child. Later we learned that it was two-year-old Aidan McCarthy dried blood on his legs, socks and his Tiger sneaker. He had been found under his father's body and carried to safety. No one was frantically looking for him because both his father and mother had been murdered a the parade.'

If david piggy broke in, why wasn’t he arrested?
Why are they debating , the dems will ban them anyway
He should be whipped with a rubber hose.
Have the Criminals agreed to this proposed legislation.
As I’ve mentioned before.
The vermin do not always act alone.
Packs of ferals are a fact of modern life.
So yes I DO need an AR-15 or similar and full capacity magazines.
Wish I could find the article from several yeas ago about the Texas? senators wife who used an AR-15 to route a gang of illegals terrorizing her at the ranch.
Strange how such incidents disappear but every tragedy is repeated by the MSM forever.
The recent Mall hero will be swept away by next week.
Elisjah Dicken sure hasn’t got too many donations on the Go Fund me page set up for him.
That stinks. People from Seymour Indiana aren’t rich.
Davis Hogg was hiding in a closet during the Parkland shooting. This hero, who is the same age, would have already killed the Parkland shooter before he ever got to Hogg. That’s the difference between a quiet hero and an attention seeking cowardly narcissist
I will trust myself to provide for my safety and security instead of some Gubmint Employee any time.
When seconds count, the cops are an hour away.
Up his arse, with a boot attached to it.
Always conceal carry. Always.
“Elisjah Dicken sure hasn’t got too many donations on the Go Fund me page set up for him.”
I am thinking Go Fund Me turned off the donations because it does not fit their political agenda. Same reason they would not allow a Go Fund Me page for the bodega owner in NYC or Rittenhouse to bail him out.
Whatever laws they make they will get Zero Compliance from me.
I’m in good company as both my current Sheriff and the new one coming in next year have flatly stated that they will not enforce any new FedMob or state gun laws.
Politicians can take their gun control and shove it!
Wrong argument altogether.
The reason they should not, and ultimately will not, is because these rifles are to protect us, the citizenry, from the Tyranny they, the government, would like to impose on us.
The fact that none of these cowards brought forward the correct reason tells you NONE of them can be trusted to protect our rights.
He wasn't even near the school when it happened.
It seems they would have to take it down and at least tell people it is shut down.
I think you’re right about GoFundMe. GiveSendGo is the conservative alternative.
GoFundMe stole thousands of dollars from the fund set up for the trucker convoy.
He was not onsite at the school.
He heard about the situation and hopped on his bike and raced on down.
Hogg = SH!T
