Conservative House Republicans, supported by several Democrats, proposed Friday to repeal the ban on assault-style weapons. Republicans have made a top priority of lifting the ban, which was part of last year's $30-billion anti-crime law initiated by the Clinton Administration. The repeal bill was introduced by members of the House Firearms Legislation Task Force. The House plans to vote in May on the bill, and Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.), a gun-control opponent, has said he hoped to have such a measure on President Clinton's desk by the summer.
