A Democrat-sponsored piece of gun control legislation being introduced for the second would create a full registry for every gun owner in America.
HR 127, or the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act, was introduced at the start of the month by Houston, Texas Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. The law was earlier introduced in 2019, but Nancy Pelosi declined to bring it up for a vote, knowing President Donald Trump would assuredly veto it if passed.
HR 127 would mandate that every gun owner apply for a federal gun license from the Department of Justice. The licenses would be issued in ‘may-issue’ fashion, giving the Attorney General complete discretion to ban anyone and everyone from owning guns.
The law would require firearms licensees to undergo a full psychological evaluation by a government-approved psychologist. Members of gun owners’ households would also be required to submit to mental health checks.
Federal licenses for gun ownership under the law would be publicly accessible and viewable, creating not only a federal gun registry, but public information revealing who owns guns available to anyone who wishes to view it.
Gun owners would be required to purchase an $800 insurance policy from the Attorney General under the law. They’d be subject to wide-ranging safety classes, which can be easily obtained in nearly any American town or city already for those interested in firearms.
This doesn’t just apply to semiautomatic rifles such as AR-15s, which the law would require additional government training and safety courses to own. All gun owners, from those who own hunting rifles to .22 pistols, would have to submit to the new Big Brother system.
Any magazine or firearm with capacity for more than ten rounds would be prohibited under the law, with one generous exception from the Democrat overlord for .22 caliber firearms. Those found in violation of the gun control behemoth would be subject to lengthy prison terms of up to 25 years and face fines of $100,000.
This piece is legislation isn’t going to pass the Senate, even though Democrats may very well put it up for a vote in committee or on the House floor. However, it’s a total disgrace that members of the United States Congress are ready and willing to advance legislation that serves as a de facto repeal of the Second Amendment. If this kind of legislation ever became law in the United States, the American legacy of freedom and liberty would be a thing of history.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
