A new bill has been introduced in the House of Representatives that will give people who turn in an “assault weapon” to the government to get a $2000 credit on their taxes.

The credit would be split into two $1000 credits over 2 years.

The bill uses similar language to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban to define an “assault weapon.” Almost any weapon with a detachable, standard capacity magazine would apply for the credit.

The bill was introduced by CT Rep Rosa DeLauro. The aim of the bill is to “reduce the number of privately owned weapons.”

Is this passes, who will be turning in their semi-auto firearms to the government if this was to pass?
