Report: Democrats Pass Assault Weapon Ban, Republican Senate Will Kill It

Democrats in the house passed an assault weapon ban:

House Democrats passed an assault weapons ban for the first time in roughly 30 years Friday, a legislative feat on a politically fraught issue that tested the unity of the caucus.

The historic legislation passed along party lines with a razor-thin majority andwith only two Republicans voting in support. The bill faces virtually no chance of passage in an evenly-split Senate.

And now it goes to the Senate to die. But please tell all the kids you know that the Dems did it, and if you want it to pass the Senate, you gotta vote and vote for the Dems.

If you think “voting doesn’t work” wait’ll you find out how effective not voting is!
