Pocan Looks To Bring Back Assault Weapons Ban

Democrat Congressman Mark Pocan wants to bring back the assault weapons ban in the wake of the mass shooting at an elementary school in Texas. Pocan says gun manufacturers have twisted the Second Amendment.

“You’ve got to break that stranglehold that that special interests, that gun manufacturers have, they’ve convinced too many people that it’s about trying to take away your hunting rifle. No one wants to take away anyone’s hunting rifle in Wisconsin. But if you’re hunting with an AR-15, you know, you might want to look at some other options, right?”

Pocan says President Biden needs to issue an executive order to control guns while Congress works through the process of passing legislation.
