HR 127 – New Gun Control Bill Seeks Federal License to Own Firearms

“The Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act”, HR 127, seeks to register and create a license for ALL guns and ammunition in the United States. Introduced on January 4 by Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tx), the bill’s text was updated on January 28. It’s blatantly unconstitutional, but Democrats don’t care.

It is named after a Pakistani student shot to death in Texas. We wrote about this previously before the text was submitted.

The Attorney General, through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, shall establish a system for licensing the possession of firearms or ammunition in the United States, and for the registration with the Bureau of each firearm present in the United States.

“(b) Firearm Registration System.—

“(1) REQUIRED INFORMATION.—Under the firearm registration system, the owner of a firearm shall transmit to the Bureau—

“(B) a notice specifying the identity of any person to whom, and any period of time during which, the firearm will be loaned to the person.

“(2) DEADLINE FOR SUPPLYING INFORMATION.—The transmission required by paragraph (1) shall be made—

“(A) in the case of a firearm acquired before the effective date of this section, within 3 months after the effective date of this section; or

HR 127

And if you understand THAT part, there is another part of the bill that is equally bad:

The Attorney General shall make the contents of the database accessible to all members of the public, all Federal, State, and local law enforcement authorities, all branches of the United States Armed Forces, and all State and local governments, as defined by the Bureau.

HR 127

But that isn’t even the worst part (if there is a worst part) – to obtain a “license” to own a firearm/ammunition, you must pass a PSYCH evaluation. No this is not satire. That whole “shall not be infringed” has been severely assaulted by Democrats.

But really, comrade, we’re not planning to send the Marines to take your guns, or gin up a mob to run you out of town, or just get the local Karens on your HOA to force you out of your home.

Just as dangerous — and unlikely to pass a court challenge, but with SCOTUS’ unwillingness to take up Second Amendment cases who knows — are the provisions about licensing.

Under this bill, you would have to be 21, pass a background check, pass a psychological examination and have liability insurance — which would cost $800.

You would even have to have a license to display an antique firearm.

There’s even a separate license for owning a “military-style firearm,” that would require jumping through even more hoops.

Perhaps most frightening are the requirements for the psych eval.

“(2) PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION.—A psychological evaluation is conducted in accordance with this paragraph if—

“(A) the evaluation is conducted in compliance with such standards as shall be established by the Attorney General;

“(B) the evaluation is conducted by a licensed psychologist approved by the Attorney General;

“(C) as deemed necessary by the licensed psychologist involved, the evaluation included a psychological evaluation of other members of the household in which the individual resides; and

“(D) as part of the psychological evaluation, the licensed psychologist interviewed any spouse of the individual, any former spouse of the individual, and at least 2 other persons who are a member of the family of, or an associate of, the individual to further determine the state of the mental, emotional, and relational stability of the individual in relation to firearms.

HR 127

So requiring a license to display an ANTIQUE firearm? Someone’s been sniffing something. And it’s certainly not “unity.” The Democrats blather about unity, then throw in a bill designed to destroy the Second Amendment entirely, and even divide families. Want more anger? HR 127 is the way to get it.

Just remember this: “two cannot walk together unless they agree.” And I, for one, do not agree.
