Democrat Bill Requires All Gun Owners to be Federally Licensed
In a clear penchant for destroying the Second Amendment, a new Democrat bill was introduced on Thursday. Democrat Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has introduced a bill that requires ALL gun owners to be federally licensed before they can exercise their 2nd amendment right. Signing on to the bill were Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) (Lie-a-watha) and Representative Hank Johnson (D-GA) (Guam will tip over).
The Democrat bill
“Under the legislation, Americans would be required to obtain a federal or state license to buy or own a gun, federal background checks would be required for all gun purchases, military-style assault weapons would be banned, and minimum age to buy a weapon or ammunition would be set at 21.”
That’s not counting the part of the bill that adds high taxes to ammunition and weapons.
First of all, federal background checks are ALREADY required for all gun purchases. Many of the mass shooters actually passed their background checks, while others were never supposed to have guns in the first place according to the law. Licensing would do no good whatsoever…except to create an infringement on the 2A.
That’s because it’s the agenda to disarm ordinary citizens, and has nothing whatever to do with saving lives. Anti-gunners tend to run on straight emotional arguments – common sense has nothing to do with it.
The proposal also contains a “may issue” wording that could easily be abused, according to Bearing Arms.
“‘(i) reliable, articulable, and credible information that the individual has exhibited or engaged in behavior to suggest the individual could potentially create a risk to public safety; or
“(ii) other existing factors that suggest that the individual could potentially create a risk to public safety.”
Gun control advocates believe that anyone owning a firearm is a risk to public safety.
Let’s take a different view, and check the facts:
“Nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. An additional 20-50 million are injured or disabled. More than half of all road traffic deaths occur among young adults ages 15-44.” (ASIRT)
Sounds to me like we should ban cars. Drivers are supposed to be licensed too…has it saved lives? No.
Firearms deaths dropped from 11,006 in 2017 t0 10,265 in 2018. The most commonly used firearm is a handgun, not a rifle (the Democrats favorite weapon to hate). In 2017, there were 390 murders with a rifle, but that fell to 297 in 2018. (Data from FBI UCR Crime in the U.S.).
Anti-gunners continually quote the statistics that there are ‘100 gun deaths’ every day. Funny, if you take the 2018 number of 10,265 and divide it by 365, you get a little over 28…not over 100.
The fight for your rights
The bill has little to no chance of passage in the Senate, but please pay attention: it’s a harbinger of what could happen if the Democrats retake the Senate this year.
Remember: Anti-gunner billionaire Michael Bloomberg is busily using his money to get Democrats elected in certain states. Buying elections with lavish spending is a problem we should all pay close attention to. He wants gun control and he wants it now. Judging from the Virginia debacle from his money being used to switch a gun friendly state to a complete disaster for gun owners, we as Americans cannot afford to be lazy in this fight. Make no mistake, this is a fight.
Watch what is happening in your state. Vote against any candidate that has taken Bloomberg money or voted for these kinds of bills. Fight for your rights, or they will disappear…never to return.
