And Clinton said that passing the 1994 federal assault weapons ban “devastated” more than a dozen Democratic lawmakers in the 1994 midterms — and cost then-Speaker of the House Tom Foley (D-Wash.) his job and his seat in Congress.

In all, 34 house incumbents (D) lost their seats in the 1994 elections. Both Tom Foley and majority leader Jack Brooks were sent packing. US Rep. Mike Synar of OK was beat in the 1994 primary by an NRA member who spent $75 on his campaign.
