Lets not forget the HR127 gun control bill. This was introduced earlier this year, I am sure it will die, but you see where they are going.

Congress is considering a bill that would be the single biggest act of gun control in American history.
It's called HR127 - Sabika Sheikh Firearm Licensing and Registration Act

Like all other gun laws, HR127 would be most heavily enforced against those with the least ability to defend themselves in court: the poor, and minorities. It will also make things much worse in marginalized communities, where only police and criminals will have guns.

There is SO much that's wrong with this bill, but here are just a few tidbits:

1️⃣ Firearms License required for any new gun purchases or ownership transfers.

▪️Licensee Must be 21, complete a 24 hour gun safety training course, and must undergo a psych evaluation.
▪️Multi-tier license. Individual license for ownership and display of "antique" firearm, standard firearm license, and "military style" license.
▪️Military license requires additional 24 hour safety course.
▪️Licensing is revoked immediately for anyone indicted of a crime in which the sentence lasts longer than 1 year.

This heavily discriminates against anyone who has ever seen a therapist or had to get mental health treatment, such as victims of abuse and people with depression, and veterans seeking care for PTSD. Depression and addiction are mentioned specifically as reasons for licensing denial.
Also, gun licensing is expensive, which makes ownership less accessible for those who need their own protection most.

2️⃣ Requires an $800 annual government insurance fee for all current and future gun owners, to be paid to the Attorney General EVERY YEAR.

There is no grandfather clause, meaning this applies to anyone that owns a gun at all, not just those who purchase a new firearm after this passes.
This fee will certainly go up each year. It’s yet another barrier for those in poverty to be able to defend themselves.

3️⃣ Mandatory Nationwide Firearms Registration & Database

▪️ALL firearms owned shall be registered under penalty of up to $150,000 and 15 years in prison.
▪️Serial, make, model, date, identity of owner, and the location of where the firearm will be stored to be collected and maintained in a database by the US Attorney General.
▪️Names and information of all those who may have access to the firearms shall be collected as well.
▪️This information to be accessible by state, local, and federal police, military, as well as state and local governments.

4️⃣ Ammunition and Magazine Bans

▪️Bans .50cal and larger ammunition outright.
▪️Bans all mags that hold more than 10 rounds

This ammo is mostly used for hunting and is rarely used against people. The most common handguns and rifles use magazines that exceed this arbitrary capacity limit, which makes TENS OF MILLIONS of law-abiding gun owners felons overnight.

Illegal ownership of even a single round of banned ammo will result in up to $100,000 in fines AND 20 years in prison.

Who do you think is going to be targeted the most with that one?

It’s important to note that HR127 places absolutely no restrictions on police or government agents, who are 10’s of times more likely to kill someone than a civilian gunowner.

Contact your member of Congress today, and let them know that HR127 is grossly unacceptable.

The second bill, HR 8, would require background checks for any firearm transaction, even the temporary loaning of a gun to a friend on an afternoon hunting trip.
