Text H.R. 127
« on: February 09, 2021, 12:13:37 am »
Hi Folks,

Anything buried in here?

https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/127/text

Requiring a government mandated psychological evaluation to own a firearm
Requiring an additional license and psychological evaluation to own a ?military-style? weapon
Further bans on certain ammunitions designated by the ATF
Requiring a mandatory firearm liability insurance, requiring $800 paid to the Attorney General?s Office every year
Creating a national firearms database open to the public, that anyone can access and see what firearms a person possesses and where they keep them

OH! And;
The federal government can decline the ability to own a firearm to anyone they deem a risk

gww, never is a long time. It will not go through now, but this is just an intro. It will be repeated in smaller increments for 20 to 30 years and get it passed for our children or grandchildren. That's why we have to constantly knock out these seeds.

I give you your point, though history is funny and seems to switch back and forth pretty fast.  I would not venture to guess either way.  I always remember the saying that if you want to hear god laugh, just tell him your plans.  Pretty sure that this particular bill is dead on arrival though.

I agree that this bill as it is proposed will not go through this time.  As with some other things I have posted, and history proves, what they are willing to say out loud they are eventually willing to do.

This time the accurate argument is that this will disproportionately hurt lower income people.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.
