    Unlikely that it passes in the senate, but if it does each manufacturer should simply modify a minor component and re-name their products.

    Pharmaceutical companies pull that crap all the time to renew patent protections, and nobody in govt bats an eye

    they are going to be going hard for this while they have power. as a side note there should be no exemption for police or retired police when they write these bills. as of right now there are no republican co-sponsors

    This will be a good way to get the USSC to settle on the Strict Scrutiny test for new gun control regs. Which almost nothing passes. Hard to prove that banning a rifle for 350 million Americans is "narrowly" targeted at the handful of loonies who shoot up schools.

    Fewer people are killed with AR-15 variants than drown in tubs, I bet.

    Imagine if the Right banned abortions because a handful of women had a dozen abortions each, using abortion as their sole form of birth control. Or if Congress banned all cars because they killed 40,000 Americans every year, and everyone should use public transportation instead.

    Feels like they're pandering to their base, completely unaware that a good deal of their base has changed their stance on guns.

    You never see that do you? I wonder if there's a slight possibility that the reason is so the politicians and wealthy can hire those people for private security...

    If they want to sue the ammo mfg? Why not sue judges letting bailed out criminals knowing they will continue attacking people?
