Yep. Although it was William Hughes. Charles Rangel was presiding over the house and approved a voice vote that is said to have failed in reality. It is a common tactic to attach something really nasty to a piece of legislation at the last minute with the hopes it will cause the entire package to be shot down. That was his goal, to kill the 1986 Firearm Owner's Protection Act. The NRA had the choice to drop everything and start from scratch or accept the machinegun ban.
