House Democrats fire away with 15 new gun ban proposals

House Democrats are bringing their own gun-control plan to the table and are due to unveil on Thursday 15 separate proposals — including a copycat of President Obama’s wish to outright ban assault weapons, according to various media reports.

Democrats will also propose bans on sales of magazines that carry more than 10 rounds of ammunition, background checks for all gun sales – and prohibitions on gun trafficking, according to The Associated Press.

Democratic plans aren’t likely to get far, however, in the GOP-controlled House, Newsmax reports.

About the best Democrats and the White House can hope for from the Republican-controlled chamber, Newsmax continues, is the passage of stronger background checks that are aimed at identifying would-be buyers with mental health issues.

Rep. John Boehner, meanwhile, is said to be waiting to see what the Senate offers by way of gun control, according to Newsmax.

The Capitol moves come as states across the nation wrestle with new gun measures in the wake of the deadly attack late last year at an elementary school in Connecticut.
