NY Republican Rep. Chris Jacobs: ‘I Would Vote for’ AR-15 Gun Ban

Rep. Chris Jacobs, R-N.Y., said Friday that he would vote to ban AR-15 assault rifles if a bill came to the floor of the House.

“I want to be completely transparent where I am in Congress,” Jacobs said during a press conference Friday posted on Twitter by WNY political reporter Ryan Whalen. “If an assault weapon ban bill came to the floor that would ban something like an AR-15, I would vote for it.”
