Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Biden to seek assault weapons ban in waning days of Dems’ control of Congress”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Biden will move to get an assault weapons ban passed while Democrats still remain in control of the House during Congress’ lame-duck session.

Mr. Biden told reporters he would try to “get rid of assault weapons” while answering questions during his Thanksgiving holiday in Nantucket, Massachusetts.

Asked if he would pursue a ban in the final days of the current Congress, Mr. Biden said he would “try” and figure out if he has the votes.

“I’m going to do it whenever — I’ve got to make that assessment as I get in and start counting votes,” he said.
