Florida’s loony left congressman Alan Grayson is pushing new gun control legislation in response to the terror attack in Orlando. According to Grayson, Americans will be safer if they have less opportunity to protect themselves.

Grayson introduces bill to ban assault weapons
U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson introduced a House bill Friday that would reinstate the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban that expired in 2004.
Grayson, D-Orlando, called his bill the “Freedom from Fear Act” and said it was in response to the Pulse nightclub shootings on June 12, committed with a semi-automatic weapon, that killed 49 people and wounded 53.
“It was the weapon that made this possible,” Grayson said in a statement Friday. “You can’t always know what is in people’s heads, we can’t always know what’s in people’s hearts, but we can know, and we do know what’s in people’s hands. That’s why I think we have to go back and re-institute the assault weapons ban.”
The bill would reinstate two sections of the original ban, which was allowed to lapse in 2004. It would restrict the manufacturing and possession of certain semi-automatic weapons and list the specific semi-automatic weapons included in the ban.
Democrats always have the same response to situations like this one.
A terrorist used a gun to kill people. Therefore, the innocent law abiding citizens who didn’t do it and want to be able to protect themselves, must have their rights limited.
