Anti gun law just introduced
« on: January 29, 2021, 07:26:17 AM »



Federal HR 127 Licensing firearms, ammo and creating a public access registry has been proposed in the House.


HR 127, proposed on Jan 4 , 2021, has had the text of the bill added online.
It includes: Gun registration (who, what, where stored, etc); Insurance requirements; Psychological Testing of gun owners (and their families!); Gun Training Requirements; Public access to federal gun registry info; Elimination of prior laws preventing the creation of gun registration.
And a lot more... this is just the beginning of the gun grabbing we knew was coming. Need to keep our eyes on this one. Get involved!
Bill text available here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/127/text?r=19

This is my favorite part "?(dd)[/size][/color][/size](1) It shall be unlawful for any person to possess ammunition that is 0.50 caliber or greater." This is a poorly written bill that will never have enough support to go any further.[/color]

Jennifer,

Most of them have a caliber which is definitly bigger than .50"

Axel,


I imagine that would be an unintended consequence of the bill.  I'm sure the intent of the sponsor was to ban .50 AE, .500 S&W, and .50 BMG.   ::)  I haven't heard anything more on this bill....it is likely dying rapidly.

There may be a loop hole in the law for those who use metric!

I believe this over .50 law already exists in that several years ago the original .50AE ammunition was banned by the ATF due to it being over .50 (.507"). Later / current product now being smaller (.497).

Would you have to measure land caliber or groove caliber?  (2Xs sarc)   :-\
