WASHINGTON — In the latest measure by Democratic lawmakers to increase gun control across the country, a bill was introduced on Wednesday that would ban the sale, manufacturing, transfer, possession and import of magazines holding more than 10 rounds.
The bill comes just a week after Biden announced several executive actions, calling on Congress to ban high-capacity magazines, “ghost guns” and “assault weapons.”
High-capacity magazines were banned for 10 years after the Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994, which failed to be renewed in 2004 and expired.
According to the NRA, President Joe Biden has “made clear his sights are set on restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners while ignoring criminals and foregoing substantive measures that will actually keep Americans safe.”
