Congressional anti-gun politicians are at it again, pushing for licensing and registration of firearms. Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) has filed H.R. 3740, a bill called the “Handgun Licensing and Registration Act of 2021.”
This bill would require federal licensing and registration of all handguns in the United States, a draconian scheme that would violate your fundamental rights. This bill would also restrict ownership of handguns to those who are 21 years old or above. The bill also mandates training and an additional background check as well as submission of fingerprints and photographs. These licenses would also have to be renewed every five years.
This bill would harm working class gun owners who don't have the disposable income or the luxury of extensive free time to go through a process that would likely be a bureaucratic nightmare. Imagine having to deal with bureaucracy like the Department of Motor Vehicles to register and license your handgun?
