They have had this written for a while, part of the bill is dated 2017 (Go to Appendix A). It appears to be the same one that they have been building off of every time they submit an AWB over the past decade or so (maybe more). Saw this on social media about a week or two ago.

It's sitting in the first stop, the Judiciary Committee, and is a 100% Democratic bill in a Committee nd House with a strong Republican majority. It's going nowhere. Nothing but another Kabuki dance for the Blue gun rights haters.

The difference between now and '86 or '94 is that the parties are near 100% split on gun rights. Gun owners are about 97% Republican voters and losing them would be deadly for Republican politicians.

Looks like they took the bait.
