Jacobs Proposes Federal Assault Rifle Licensing Law | Featured story

WASHINGTON DC — Congressman Chris Jacobs introduced the federal Assault Weapons Licensing Act, designed to put in place additional protections on access to high-powered weapons.

“We have seen firsthand in Buffalo, Uvalde and countless other communities across our nation that high-powered semi-automatic weapons have the ability to cause an extreme amount of destruction in a very short time,” said Jacobs, R. -Orchard Park, said in a press release issued Monday. “While the overwhelming majority of Americans who own these weapons are law-abiding and responsible gun owners, the growing trend of mass shootings with these weapons shows that additional safeguards must be in place when obtaining them. My bill will better ensure that these guns do not fall into the wrong hands, while protecting Americans’ ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights.
