Surrounded with heavily armed guards who have no qualms about shooting unarmed female Donald Trump supporters right inside the Capitol building, Democrats are starting once again to come after Americans’ guns … because Americans can’t be trusted with them.
Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (TX), who in September of 2019 referred to an AR-15 as “heavy as 10 boxes you might be moving” and firing .50 caliber bullets, has introduced a gun control bill for the current Congress that, if passed, could make California gun control laws look tame, The Daily Wire reports.
The stated purpose of H.R.127 is to “provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.”
The directs the U.S. Attorney General to create a licensing and registration system through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) which would, along with creating countless more pointless but highly paid government jobs, require gun owners to inform the government of the “make, model, and serial number” of the firearms they own as well as where they are stored.
To get a gun license, individuals would also have to complete “at least 24 hours of training.” Individuals can be stripped of their license and must get their licenses renewed. The bill also states that information gathered in the registration will be provided to all Federal, State, and local law enforcement agencies as well as to all branches of the United States Military, since they might have to take you down.
Best of all, in order to obtain a license to possess a firearm and in addition to being 21 years old and undergoing a background check, the law would require that an individual undergo “a psychological evaluation” which could potentially involve “other members of the household in which the individual resides.”
This from people who regard anyone who can beat them in an argument – Donald Trump for example – as insane.
Diagnosed depression would be a reason to prohibit firearm ownership. Depressed about COVID lockdowns? No gun for you.
The bill also bans ammunition that is .50 caliber or larger, so according to Sheila Jackson Lee, that means no AR-15s for anyone either.
