Pennsylvania House Democrats have once again shown their disdain for Second Amendment rights by advancing new gun control legislation. On Wednesday, they pushed forward a ban on so-called “assault weapons” and sought to prohibit the purchase, possession, and sale of non-serialized gun parts. In addition, they moved to restrict accelerated trigger activators and apply regulations to 3D-printed firearms.
Despite the Democrats’ efforts, the chances of these measures passing in the Republican-controlled Senate are as slim as a toothpick. With an even split in the House, where there are 101 Democrats and 101 Republicans, it’s a deadlock showdown. These gun control bills may have made it through the House Judiciary Committee, but their future on the Senate floor looks about as promising as a snowball surviving a bonfire.

The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) highlighted the lack of Republican support for the legislation, noting that not a single Republican has come forward to sponsor any of these bills. Even with the Democrats stacking the vote in committee, it seems they can’t whip up enough interest from their counterparts across the aisle.
As it stands, these partisan bills are about as popular as a skunk at a picnic among the Republican-controlled Senate. It’s a classic case of the left pushing their gun control agenda, only to be met with the stiff resistance of those who actually value the Second Amendment. But hey, it makes for good political theater, doesn’t it?
