U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty Thursday joined fellow members Congress and mayors, law enforcement officers, gun safety organizations and other groups, and victims of gun violence to introduce legislation on military-style assault weapons and high capacity ammunition feeding devices, the "Assault Weapons Ban of 2013," according to a statement.
"The Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 would reauthorize and strengthen the 1994 assault weapons ban which expired in 2004," the statement said.
