REPORT: Democrats To Propose Weapons Ban, Gun Confiscation Powers In Trump-Inspired Bill

Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call
On Thursday, the Washington Examiner reported that Democratic leaders will introduce a radical gun control bill that would ban specific types of firearms and would give courts the power to confiscate guns from individuals who are deemed to be a threat to themselves or others.
The news comes one day after President Donald Trump seemed to support Sen. Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA) proposal for an assault weapons ban during a meeting on gun control hosted at the White House in response to the recent shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The Washington Examiner notes:
