Proposed Federal House Legislation HB5093

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

This bill seeks to have the Federal Trade Commission oversee the safety of firearms and would provide for political manipulation of the ownership of firearms through the smokescreen of regulating dangerous products.

A freshman Democrat is proposing a ban on the use of cartoon characters to sell guns, and a ban firearm branded merchandise for children such as hats, t-shirts and stuffed animals.

The Children's Firearm Marketing Safety Act from Rep. Robin Kelly, an Illinois Democrat, reflects the growing feeling among those on the left that guns should not be marketed to children. Many Democrats argue that the marketing of guns to children is contributing to the shooting death of children across the country.
