Democrat-sponsored bill would prevent minors from even firing ‘weapons of war’

After New York Daily News writer Gersh Kuntzman complained of recoil pain and post-traumatic stress disorder after firing a semiautomatic rifle, he wrote a followup column berating parents who teach their children proper gun safety.

“Too many gun owners convey the notion that their daughters or sons can only be ‘good kids’ if they enjoy firing weapons of war,” Kuntzman alleged.

Apparently, at least a few Democratic lawmakers agree with Kuntzman.

Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey and Arizona Rep. Ruben Gallego are championing a bill that would prevent any American under the age of 16 from firing any firearm deemed to be an assault weapon. In discussing the proposal, these weapons are also interchangeably referred to as machine guns.

Markey reasoned: “The small hands of children and big power of machine guns are a deadly combination. Assault weapons are weapons of war and should not be allowed in the hands of children.”
