During the election year, President Trump warned that a new administration would be coming to take away the 2nd amendment! Well, we are not even 2 weeks into the Biden administration and the House has just submitted a new resolution — HR 127 — and within the resolution is the STRICTEST measures ever proposed. [ Read the bill for yourself ]
The Attorney General, through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, shall establish a system for licensing the possession of firearms or ammunition in the United States, and for the registration with the Bureau of each firearm present in the United States.
Within 3 months of the resolution being passed …
REQUIRED INFORMATION.—Under the firearm registration system, the owner of a firearm shall transmit to the Bureau—
“(A) the make, model, and serial number of the firearm, the identity of the owner of the firearm, the date the firearm was acquired by the owner, and where the firearm is or will be stored; and
“(B) a notice specifying the identity of any person to whom, and any period of time during which, the firearm will be loaned to the person.
Then … every gun owner will need to obtain a license and then complete a criminal background check, psychological evaluation, complete a 24-hour training course, and finally carry gun insurance (appears to be $800 a year!). Of course, your license can be denied or revoked if you are found to be declared ‘psychologically unfit’ for any number of reasons.
And the kicker … if you are found in violation of this new law … the smallest fine was $5,000 up to $150,000 and up to 25 years in jail!
