Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- The U.S. Senate will take up the “Cybersecurity Act” starting Monday, July 30, but a group of Democrat Senators lead by Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is looking to add an anti-gun amendment to the bill.

Sens. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), joined Schumer in an effort to resurrect the failed 1994 magazine ban.

A day after President Obama indicated his willingness to look at new gun laws, this group of reliably anti-gun Senators is hoping to take advantage of the environment to advance their political agenda.

The  magazine ban was a failed idea from the Clinton era, and will have no impact on criminal misuse of firearms, now, or in the future.  It only serves to limit the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. NRA strongly opposes this amendment.  We will work with our allies to defeat this anti-freedom proposal, and will track any vote on the amendment if it is allowed under Senate rules.

Please contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to oppose this amendment.

    It's all grandstanding. Even if they had the votes in the Senate (they don't) it wouldn't pass the House. Thats why the tried to sneek it through in the Cyber Security bill.
