Bill/Issue: U.S. HR 127 - Gun licensing, Registration & Partial Ammo Ban
Position: Strongly Opposed
Author: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX-18)
Summary: To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.
This awful legislation would force you to petition to and pay the government for the 'privilege' of purchasing or possessing firearms and ammunition. And we all know how likely Statist bureaucrats will be to approve such licenses. Therefore, this legislation could potentially lead to a de facto ban on civilian gun ownership.
However, this bill goes so much farther by mandating registration of firearms. Rep. Jackson Lee wants the ATF to know about every gun you own so they can be taken - by force if necessary. And the disgusting cherry on top of this pile of manure: a ban on certain types of ammunition.
Because this legislation is so new, full text is still not available. Therefore, HR 127 does not specify what ammunition would be banned. However, we can hazard a guess that certain calibers and types (think hollow points) would fall under the ban.
HR 127 represents an immediate danger to the right to keep and bear arms and MUST be defeated at all costs. As you know, the Senate is now under anti-gunner control. So this is a RED ALERT for gun owners!
