I wonder how many members of congress would turncoat over the simple inclusion of another sunset clause in a new AWB? Mitch would be all in, I'm sure.
They (GOP) would sell it as a "pause", not a ban. Kind of like when we just needed 2 weeks to flatten the curve. We're just gonna take a little tiny very quick break from assault weapons while we work together to find a really, really great solution.
Biden to seek assault weapons ban in waning days of Dems’ control of Congress
President Biden will move to get an assault weapons ban passed while Democrats still remain in control of the House during Congress’ lame-duck session.
Mr. Biden told reporters he would try to “get rid of assault weapons” while answering questions during his Thanksgiving holiday in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
“The idea [that] we still allow semi-automatic weapons to be purchased is sick. Just sick. It has no, no social redeeming value. Zero. None. Not a single solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers,” Mr. Biden said.
