Earlier this week, U.S. House of Representatives passed a sweeping gun-control package titled the “Protecting Our Kids Act” (POKA). This radical legislation involves eight new statutes, covered below. Voting primarily on party lines, the Democratic-majority House approved the eight measures that collectively comprise POKA by a 223-204 vote.
NOTE: No part of POKA has become actual Federal law yet — it has only made it through the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives. For any part of POKA to become law, the provisions must be approved by the U.S. Senate and then signed by President Biden.
Here Are Key Statutory Components of the New POKA Federal Legislation:
1. Anthony Brown’s Raise the Age Act — This raises the lawful age to purchase a semi-automatic rifle from 18 to 21 years old.
2. David Cicilline’s Untraceable Firearms Act — This makes so-called “ghost guns” subject to existing federal firearms regulations.
3. Ted Deutch’s Keep Americans Safe Act — This is a new Full-Capacity Mag ban that would ban the sale, manufacture, and possession of New gun magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.
4. Robin Kelly’s Prevent Gun Trafficking Act — This creates new federal offenses for gun trafficking and straw purchasing.
5. Dina Titus’s End Bump Stock Loophole
