House Democrats rally behind a new assault-weapons ban in the aftermath of Florida school shooting, even as Republican leaders made it clear Tuesday that such a sweeping measure likely will not have a voice.

The “Assault Weapons Ban of 2018,” bill was officially introduced on Monday by Democratic Reps. David Cicilline, Rhode Island, and Ted Deutch, whose Florida district, to prohibit where a gunman killed 17 people with the kind of semi-automatic rifle, the draft law aims.

“Now is the time to act is now tweeted,” Deutch. “We start by we free assault our streets of weapons. These are made the weapons of war for the sole purpose of killing people. The majority of Americans support the assault weapons ban. It is time for the Congress and pass meaningful legislation.”

The draft law on Tuesday afternoon, was sponsored by 164 of the chamber 192 Democratic members, such as house Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other members of your leadership team.

Deutch has publicly called for speaker of the house of representatives prompted to allow Paul Ryan to select members, the on-gun-control-measures. And he vowed to take to work with anyone in Congress – “Democrats and Republicans are sensible measures on gun safety.”

The bill would attempt to regulate “the importation, manufacture, possession, sale or transfer of assault weapons,” says the text. The measure is only one of several introduced this week to curb armed violence.

Today I came @RepCicilline and 150+ of my colleagues, the introduction of the assault weapons ban. It is time for the Congress, the will of the majority of Americans and pass sensible legislation to these weapons of war from our streets. #Never Again #MSDStrong

But Ryan on Tuesday appeared to rule out consideration of such a thing as a gun ban.

“We should not ban guns for law-abiding citizens. We should aim to make sure that those who do not get guns, guns,” he told reporters on Capitol Hill. “We want children but people want to hear the due process rights protect, while they do not ensure that people who get guns don’ T you.”

The Wisconsin Republican vowed to “have the conversations that we don’t need” with the members to ensure, “that will not happen again.”

House leaders on Tuesday, an attempt by California Rep. Mike Thompson, who check the house Democratic efforts on firearms, to relax, to force a special resolution, the GOP-controlled chamber, “immediately check, gun-violence legislation.”

Ryan and his leadership team are also the house argue, has already passed a law to strengthen the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which flags dangerous weapon buyer, before you can afford such purchases.

They pointed out that the chamber has also shootings passed a law dealing with mental health problems, often a factor in mass. These two measures are currently being considered in the GOP-controlled Senate.

Yet Ryan and his team, including house majority whip Steve Scalise, on Tuesday, directed much of its focus on the breakdown in law enforcement during the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

“It was a colossal breakdown,” Ryan. “We need to go to the ground, such as a breakdown occurred from the armed officer in the school at the time, the FBI failed to follow up on a solid tip.”

Scalise, who is still recovering from gunshot wounds that he suffered in June 2017 mass shootings during exercises with colleagues for a charity softball game, he talked with some of the survivors of Florida students.

“There was talk of breakdowns, the said various levels of government, but in the end we talked about our common experience,” Scalise, whose life was saved by officers who killed the shooter in last year’s attack.

“What annoys me most is when I see a breakdown in law enforcement. The FBI had [the shooter] on a silver platter. He said he wanted a “professional school” shooter. It was written under his name and turned to the FBI,” said Scalise, R-La.

Ryan said that as a parent he supports the proposal of President Trump to have trained teachers with a concealed weapon in the class rooms, to prevent similar incidents, but the Problem should be addressed by States, local governments, school authorities and parents.
