This past weekend’s deadly workplace shooting in Aurora, Illinois, where 5 were killed and 7 others injured, helped fuel the “gun violence” debate that has been raging since the 2018 Valentine’s Day school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

The country was only a couple days removed from the one year anniversary of the shooting that killed 17 students and teachers, when 45-year-old Gary Martin open fired on his former coworkers after being fire.

Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) who believes that this and all other shootings are a “public health epidemic,” who along with Rep. Ted Deutch (D) have been spearheading new gun control legislation.

With Wasserman Schultz and Deutch now part of the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, there is a very good chance any legislation that comes up for vote, will have support of the Democratic majority.

Deutch and fellow Democrats are in favor of banning “assault weapons” but still have not specifically stated their definition of an “assault weapon.”

The gun lobby argues that any firearm, revolver or semi-automatic, can be categorized as an assault weapon, if the weapon is used in an assaulting fashion.
