Slowly but surely, Democrats have sought to chip away at the American people’s Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
Democrat strongholds like California, New York, and Illinois, have enacted the nation’s strictest gun control measures, only to see gun violence continue to increase in those areas.
And now, one Democrat has proposed the most radical gun control plan in history in order to enact even stricter laws on all 50 states.
Almost like clockwork, any time Democrats win an election, gun control becomes one of their top priorities.
So, when Joe Biden was sworn into office, it was a foregone conclusion that Democrats would set their sights on pushing for gun control and working to chip away at the right to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your property.
Now, those fears have been realized, and it may just be even worse than anyone anticipated.
This week, Democrat Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (TX), introduced H.R. 127, a bill that, if passed, would make gun control laws in states like California seem lenient.
The bill’s stated purpose is to “provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.”
But, unfortunately for those who aren’t radical leftists, it goes much further than that.
Under the bill, the Attorney General would establish a federal licensing program through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, And Explosives designed to monitor all purchases and the location of firearms by mandating that gun owners must inform the government “where the firearm is or will be stored.”
In order to acquire a license, prospective gun owners would have to complete 24 hours of training, undergo “psychological evaluations” which could also include other members of your household, and pay the government an $800 fee every year to insure gun owners “against liability for losses and damages resulting from the use of any firearm by the person . . .”
The bill would also ban all ammunition larger than .50 caliber, and outlaw the possession of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Quite frankly, the bill is outrageously dangerous, especially in the times in which we live.
Through this bill, there’s little doubt that the door would be open for far-left politicians in Washington, D.C. to begin taking away the constitutional rights of American citizens for almost any reason they see fit.
For example, the bill provides for a provision that would strip a law-abiding American of their Second Amendment rights if they are determined to have suffered from depression, or other psychiatric disorders.
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, approximately 17 million Americans suffered from a major depressive episode in 2017.
So would 17 MILLION Americans permanently lose their right to self-defense because of something as common, and treatable, these days as suffering from depression?
Yes. Yes, they would.
It’s these types of reckless measures inside of this bill that will allow Big Government bureaucrats to systematically destroy the Second Amendment.
With Democrats controlling the House, Senate, and the White House, they will stop at nothing to pass this type of radical legislation as quickly as possible.
They’ve deemed the Constitution a hindrance to their control on the population, and they’re determined to put a stop to it.
Enacting this type of gun control measure is merely the first step.
