Our beloved President Clinton was an important cheerleader for the law he signed on Sept. 13, 1994, banning semi-automatic firearms and large capacity ammunition magazines. The law had a 10-year sunset provision and, using math that even a gun writer could understand, the law expires this year.
With the pending demise of the ban, two laws were introduced into Congress on May 8 that would not only renew the Clinton prohibition but also expand and make it permanent. H.R. 2038 was introduced by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) while companion bill S. 1034 was introduced into the Senate by original ban authors Sen. (then-Rep) Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.).
