GOP congressman introduces bill to license "assault weapons"

Rep. Chris Jacobs isn’t running for re-election this year, in large part because of the backlash the New York Republican received when he announced his support for a ban on modern sporting rifles shortly after the shooting at the Tops grocery store in Buffalo earlier this year.

Before Jacobs leaves Congress, however, he’s making one last push for gun control; a new bill that would require all new owners of so-called assault weapons to be licensed by the federal government.

The legislation includes a new licensing system, a mandatory safety course, fingerprinting, a background check and much more. Anyone who owns an assault weapon at the time of enactment would be grandfathered in.
