If democrats have their way, the 2nd Amendment will be a distant memory soon.
Look at this radical new gun legislation being pushed by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee just two weeks into Biden’s presidency.
The Texas democrat has pushed some radical gun legislation in the past, but this one takes the cake.
If passed, the bill would create a gun registry nationwide, and would mandate phychological evaluations for anyone wanting to buy or sell weapons or ammunition.
This would also allow the government to collect peronal information on anyone who owns a firearm, including criminal history, who else uses the firearm, and even where it is stored.
This information would then go into a public database for anyone to see, including all branches of government.
Here's more on the proposed bill from the Washington Examiner:
Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee introduced a bill earlier this month that would enact some of the strictest gun regulations in the history of the country and give the federal government sweeping power to decide who can own a firearm.
The Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act, named after a Pakistani exchange student who was murdered in Texas in 2018, would "provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms" and "prohibit the possession of certain ammunition."
Specifically, the bill would dramatically expand the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Justice Department's ability to surveil legal gun owners, forcing them to submit information about "the make, model, and serial number of the firearm, the identity of the owner of the firearm, the date the firearm was acquired by the owner, and where the firearm is or will be stored."
Gun owners would have three months to comply with the new federal orders for a new database that would be "accessible to all members of the public."
Ownership of a firearm would also be restricted to those 21 and older. Individuals who meet the age requirement and apply for a federal gun license would then be ordered to undergo "a psychological evaluation." That evaluation would also be extended to "other members of the household in which the individual resides ... 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."
An individual's request for a license could be denied should the government find any history of hospitalization for "mental illness, disturbance, or diagnosis (including depression, homicidal ideation, suicidal ideation, attempted suicide, or addiction to a controlled substance ... a brain disease ... or on account of conduct that endangers self or others."
Here's more on the possible dangers from such radical legislation from Ammoland.com:
As you can imagine, this Congress’s iteration of the Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act is no less onerous and oppressive as its predecessor. If anything, though, some of the provisions now carry new menace given the constant calls for “deprogramming” we hear from pundits and cable “news” outlets of a certain persuasion.
Like its iteration in the last Congress, HR 127 calls for a psychological evaluation of those who wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Our past coverage noted that the evaluation could take a lot of time, given the number of interviews that would have to be scheduled. The concern then was the creation of more tragedies along the line of Carol Bowne, who was murdered by an abusive ex.
Now, however, given the desire for “deprogramming,” we could very well see the psychological evaluation used to target those who dissent from anti-Second Amendment extremism, who raise questions about certain issues, or who even supported former President Trump on other issues. After all, we haven’t ever seen government bureaucrats abuse power for political ends before, and even raising that notion might be enough to warrant “deprogramming” these days. After all, to believe some people, Second Amendment advocacy is domestic terrorism.
