ABSTRACT

H. Rept. 117-442: Assault Weapons Ban of 2022, Report Together with Minority Views, to Accompany H.R. 1808, July 26, 2022   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Purpose and Summary: "On March 11, 2021, Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) introduced H.R. 1808, the 'Assault Weapons Ban of 2021,' with 187 original cosponsors. This legislation prohibits the sale, manufacture, transfer, or possession of semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices (also known as 'large capacity magazines'). Currently, there are no federal laws that restrict the sale of semiautomatic assault weapons or large capacity ammunition feeding devices. Reducing the prevalence of these weapons and devices will reduce the lives lost to gun violence and make our communities safer. Semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices 'result in more shots fired, more persons hit, and more wounds inflicted per victim than do attacks with other firearms.'"
