House gun hearing gets testy when Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee comments on Republican showing firearms

The incident occurred during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the DemocraticProtect Our Kids” paquete, an expansive piece of gun control legislation that Democrats argue is common sense, while Republicans say it is overly broad and unconstitutional.

Steube, who attended the hearing digitally from his own home, gave several examples of firearms in his own personal collection that the Democratic bill would ban.

Here’s a gun I carry every single day to protect myself, my family, my wife and my home,” Steube said.

This is a XL Sig Sauer P365. It comes with a 15-round magazine. Here’s a seven-round magazine, which would be less than what would be lawful under this bill if this bill were to become law,” él dijo, holding both magazines and attempting to insert the latter into the firearm.

It doesn’t fit, so this gun would be banned,” él dijo.

I hope that gun is not loaded,” Lee then interjected.

I’m at my house. I can do whatever I want with my guns,” Steube shot back.

Biden is expected to appeal to Republicans during his address. He has discounted some Republicans as unreasonable on the issue, sin embargo. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is among thereasonable ones,” Biden dijo.

As a nation, we have to ask, when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When in God’s name, will we do what we know in our gut what needs to be done?” Biden said last week.

We have to act. Don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage,” él agregó.
