As the coronavirus epidemic began to dominate news cycles and alter everyday American life, Congressional Democrats advanced a new ‘behemoth’ gun control bill that goes far beyond anything the American people have ever seen debated in the halls of Congress, combining the worst of the worst gun control proposals into a single piece of legislation.
H.R. 5717, the “Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act of 2020,” was introduced to the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security on March 10th, having been sponsored by Georgia’s Hank Johnson and and eighteen other Democrats.
The bill is exceptionally comprehensive in instituting various forms of federal gun confiscation proposals touted by anti-gun elements of American society. It includes:
-A ban on almost all semiautomatic rifles
-A nationwide gun registry
-Federal bans on magazine capacity
-A massive 30% tax on all gun transactions, and a 50% tax on all ammunition purchases
-A ban on gun ownership for Americans under the age of 21
-National ‘red flag’ extralegal gun confiscation programs
-Mandatory storage requirements for gun owners
And a bevy of other gun restrictions that Democrats have long dismissed as pipe dreams beholden to only a fringe element of their party.
Previously these proposed restrictions have been touted as sole proposals in state and federal legislation. The bill’s supporters appear to have rejected the strategy of piecemeal gun control, opting instead for an anti-gun omnibus that could wholly destroy America’s tradition of lawful gun ownership in a single stroke.
It shouldn’t be surprising at all that nationwide gun and ammunition sales are surging rapidly as the coronavirus epidemic rages. Democrats don’t appear to have taken the epidemic as a sign to let up on attacking the Second Amendment. The Sheriff of Los Angeles County openly said that purchasing guns is a “bad idea” during the duration of the epidemic.
The bill may never make it out of committee, but it sponsors deserve lasting ignominy.
Arizona House Passes Law to Nullify Biden’s Federal Gun Control
Arizona won’t recognize gun control.
The Arizona House passed a law to nullify federal gun control measures last last month, establishing the state as a Second Amendment sanctuary. State Rep. Leo Biasiucci’s Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act would nullify any new federal gun control laws restricting gun rights, citing the unconstitutionality of the Biden administration’s support for “assault weapons” bans, attacks on online firearms transactions, and forced registry of semiautomatic rifles as NFA items.
The law passed the Arizona State House in a 31-29 party line vote in February.
“We’re Second Amendment friendly. We love our law-abiding citizens, gun owners,” Biasiucci told the Epoch Times. “So I have a bill HB 2111 … it’s very simple. It says if the federal government changes anything at the federal level, Arizona is not gonna play. We’re not going to use money. We’re not gonna use resources to comply—if they ban AR-15 and they try to come in and start arresting people. Not gonna happen in our state.”
The law- or a similar proposal currently being prepared by Arizona Senators- has a strong chance of passing Arizona’s State Senate, where Republicans hold a two-seat lead. If signed into law, Arizona would be the biggest state to pass a Second Amendment nullification provision that blocks federal gun control proposals, following Missouri, Wyoming, South Dakota, Tennessee, Kansas, and Alaska.
The Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act would institute state criminal penalties for law enforcement officials that attempt to enforce illegal gun grabs.
Biasiucci touted the law as an invitation for firearms companies to move to Arizona, citing respect for gun laws and a pro-small and medium business economic atmosphere.
“I ask all these gun manufacturers come to Arizona. We got low taxes. We’re trying to drop our income tax again this year. We’re gonna try to move it to a flat tax. We have a lot of land, business-friendly. We’re open for business. So I tell everybody: hey, come to Arizona, the land of the free over there, the last frontier.”
