Senators Trying to Slip Gun Control into Cybersecurity Bill

An amendment that has yet to be voted on, would ban guns or magazines that carry 10 or more rounds OR THAT CAN BE CONVERTED to carry 10 rounds. It would allow people to keep guns they already have, but would restrict future sale to only law enforcement officers (including retired)... It is being considered to be put in the Cybersecurity bill.

MENENDEZ, Mrs. GILLIBRAND, Mr. SCHUMER, and Mrs. FEINSTEIN)

lie on the table; as follows:
