Sen. Mark Kelly and a group of Senate Democrats, including Sen. Angus King, have introduced a new AR-15 ban, emphasizing catchphrases like “lethal capacity weapons” and “gas-operated semiautomatic.”

Kelly described the ban as a “renewed effort” focusing on the lethality of the internal mechanisms, but the gas operation of an AR-15 is not new, dating back to 1959.

The designation of “gas-operated” does not change the fact that an AR-15 is a semiautomatic firearm, and the proposed ban targets the same guns as other “assault weapons” bans. (Trending: Olympic Gold Medalist Sentenced For Jan 6)

Critics believe the move marks yet another attempt by the Left to infringe on Americans’ second amendment rights.
