Here Are The 10 House Republicans That Voted In Favor Of Raising Gun Age Limit From 18 To 21

Lawmakers in the House of Representatives voted in favor of raising the age from 18 to 21 for semi-automatic weapon purchases in response to the mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, New York. The bill stands virtually no chance of passing the Senate with a high probability of rendering it dead on arrival once it hits the Senate floor.

The 228-199 vote occurred largely along party lines, with two Democrats voting against the bill and 10 Republicans siding with the Democrat-led proposed legislation, which also prohibits the sale of ammunition magazines with a capacity of more than 15 rounds.

Here are the 10 Republicans who voted in favor of Title I of the Protecting Our Kids Act to raise the age limit to buy semi-automatic weapons:
