The Democrats are push a very extreme anti-gun bill that includes confiscation, ammunition bans, registration, and mental health exams.
Extremist, left-wing Democrat Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee (TX) has introduced H.R.127, one of the most radical anti-gun bills ever pushed into Congress.
The bill summary says H.R.127 aims to “provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.”
The bill would give the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) vast new powers, including the power to prevent Americans from owning certain guns and ammunition.
The bill would force gun owners to tell the federal government exactly what they own and where they keep it. The ATF will force gun owners to get expensive “training” and can strip gun owners of their “licenses” if they aren’t satisfied.
The bill also says that the ATF will share its information with all federal and state agencies as well as the military.
Per the Daily Wire:
In order to obtain a license to possess a firearm, an individual would need to be at least 21 years old and, in addition to undergoing a background check, would require that the individual undergo “a psychological evaluation” which could potentially involve “other members of the household in which the individual resides.” Under the bill, a person could have their constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms stripped from them if they’ve been hospitalized with a wide range of psychiatric disorders, including depression.
The bill also bans ammunition of .50 caliber and larger. It also bans magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
The bill also forces gun owners to pay an $800 fee to the government for indemnity insurance “against liability for losses and damages resulting from the use of any firearm by the person during the 1-year period that begins with the date the policy is issued.”
The goal here is to ban a large number of guns — including AR15s and their like — and to make owning a gun so expensive that most people won’t be able to do it.
