Legislation to set a mandatory three-day waiting period for handgun transfers and establish licensing and registration guidelines on the sale of binary target markers have been introduced.
The bills HR.4018 and HR.4064 were introduced by House Democrats last week and join a growing number of gun control proposals filed in the days immediately after a mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 59 dead.
U.S. Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill., debuted his handgun waiting period bill Thursday to mandate that three business days elapse from the time a handgun transfer was initiated between a federal firearms licensed dealer and an individual. Limited exceptions would be allowed for loans of less than 30 days between immediate family members.
Florida Democrat U.S. Rep. Darren Soto filed his push against binary target marking compounds such as Tannerite on Friday. His measure would amend federal explosives laws to require dealers to be licensed and buyers to show identification for each purchase. It would also direct the Attorney General to establish a National Binary Explosive Check System to require all sales and transfers of binary markers to be entered and tracked, including the name and address of purchasers.
Further, the Department of Justice would set a monthly limit on the legal amount of compound that could be transferred to individuals, with criminal penalties for making false statements, unregistered purchases or exceeding the limit.
Police reportedly found several pounds of ammonium nitrate fertilizer in the car of the Las Vegas shooter, and tannerite in his home.
Both measures have been referred to the Republican-controlled House Committee on the Judiciary.
They join bills to ban bump stocks and magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, expand smart gun mandates and funding for federal gun violence research, limit online ammunition sales, and report multiple rifle transfers.
One of the comments at the link said it best:
"These bill riders will insure that the whole gun bill is DOA."
This Ping List is for all things pertaining to the 2nd Amendment.
FReepmail me if you want to be added to or deleted from the list.
More 2nd Amendment related articles on FR's Bang List.
What about the ammo registry?
Typical,lib, dem, pink panty, feel-good Bullshit. Won’t go anywhere.
Then you remember:
You should never let a crisis go to waste, because then you can do things you couldn't do before.
So the only person harmed by a handgun in the LV shooting was the shooter himself and they want to impose a 3-day waiting period on handguns. Makes a lot of sense to me. Number of people injured by tannerite 0, so limit sales of tannerite.
We should thank them for poisoning the bill I guess.
Yeh because a handgun killed all those folks in Vegas. :-)
It better be DOA!
Those of us in California would welcome a three day wait in lieu of the ten day wait we have now. Even better would be to eliminate altogether the “cooling off” period.
Any new regs on Devontre selling a hot weapon to Jaydee down in the alley behind 6th Street?
U.S. Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill
Why America Why? We are the dumbest country after France, Germany and England. I am telling you that we are inviting terrorists into our inner circle. No wonder Raja wants to get rid of guns, they use bombs and knives and a new one vehicles.
That's nothing. The insane left wants to stamp each round with micro serial numbers.
Good thing I stocked up before the Kenyaneisan Usurpation.
As solid an authority on the 2nd Amendment as there is!
They just want what’s best for you. /s
I have a couple tubs I need to try.
Dirty trick? More like a foot bullet.
U.S. Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill. Foreigners COLLUDING with the “Democrats” to bring down the Bill of Rights and steal away American freedoms?
Lunatic liberals will push additions further than they think they can get away with. It all must be done while emotion is running high. Liberalism is 99% based on raw emotion. As Rahmbo said, “Never let a crisis go to waste.”
1) He never held an honest job in his life. He went straight from law school to government.
2) He was a leftist from the start. Probably slurped up all the leftist swill at Harvard. He's no more (or less) un-American than his leftist professors.
Plenty of natural born citizen Americans are as bad, or worse than he is. Schumer? Pelosi? Clinton?
