Wasserman Schultz presses her ammunition control bill


The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives continues its push to pass their entire legislative agenda ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

It’s fair to say that Democrats are trying to pass as much legislation they know congressional Republicans will vote against, and President Trump won’t sign.

The political play is a safe bet considering that Democrats could very well lose their control of the House, and as Trump looks like he will win re-election.

The “Jamie’s Law,” which calls for universal background check for individuals looking to purchase ammunition, was named in honor of Jamie Guttenberg who was on of 17 students and teachers killed at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

 “Every day we wait to act and enact reasonable gun safety measures, we risk losing more lives,” said Wasserman Schultz. “It is inexcusable to sit and do nothing while people have their lives torn apart by gun violence. Our communities deserve better.” (CBS4)

Wasserman Schultz contends that “requiring background checks on ammunition sales” would save lives, and would close the loophole of individuals who are already prohibited from buying a firearm, to be able to purchase ammunition.
