New Anti Gun Rights Bills Move Along ^ | 1-10-2012

Posted on 01/10/2013 11:23:53 AM PST by Sasparilla

Text of new Bills with new firearms regulations have been published. However, what may be the worst, the full text of Feinstein’s Senate “Assault weapons” Bill hasn't been released yet.

From Rep. Bobby Rush, (HR 34) wants to implement the same type of system that is in place for licensing drivers and registering cars by their VIN number. This Bill would establish “GINs” as a uniform system to track guns.

He would also make it illegal for anyone other than certain dealers to possess a “qualifying” firearm without a Federal license for it and a written firearms examination testing the applicant’s knowledge and ability.

From Rep. Shiela Jackson Lee, (HR 65) among other requirements raises the age of handgun eligibility to 21 and requires that any child attending a gun show to be accompanied by an adult. It also “expresses the sense of Congress that each school district should provide or participate in a firearms safety program for students.” It’s doubtful that she refers to the NRA Eddie Eagle Program.

From Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, (HR 137) is to ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the National Instant Criminal Background Check system and require a background check for every firearm sale.

Don't forget:
HR-117: To provide for the mandatory licensing and registration of handguns.
HR-142: To require face to face purchases of ammunition, to require licensing of ammunition dealers, and to require reporting regarding bulk purchases of ammunition.

“From Rep. Jim Moran, (HR 21)” DOA

“From Rep. Bobby Rush, (HR 34)” DOA

“From Rep. Shiela Jackson Lee, (HR 65)” DOA

“From Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, (HR 137)” and that’s DOA.

I just emailed the following to my two Georgia Senators.

“I’ve written you before and have made my dissatisfaction with you known about two or three things (amnesty, budget).

This latest potential of re-implementing an assault weapons ban, gun registration, etc. are completely against the second amendment.

If you vote affirmatively, even once, on any new modification to my rights, I will do anything I can, even to the point of voting for a Democrat to remove you from office.

That is a promise.”
