The US House of Representatives passed a bill banning assault weapons following a largely party-line vote of 217-213 on Friday, setting the stage in a divided Senate for a fiercely ideological battle that’s unlikely to go the way of the Democrats.
The bill contains language to “ban the sale, import, manufacture or transfer of certain semi-automatic weapons” but does not call for the confiscation of any applicable firearm currently possessed by US gun owners.
