    All we need to know is the prime sponsor - Sheila Jackson Lee - to know this is not an acceptable bill in any shape way or form...

    Don't they pretty much throw this shit at the wall year after year, "hey let's see what sticks?" This isn't going anywhere. Still enough Dems who would be signing their career away to go along. Not that I don't find it a bit more alarming now, but I'm still not terribly concerned.

    They have much more luck nibbling away at the 2A than they do when they go for the whole ham sandwich.

    Nearby township taxes sale of house if you are moving out of the township. For years. How the hell does it get away with it? They can't claim a loss, the new owner(s) will continue to pay all local taxes concerning the address.
    There are only two kinds of guns. Those I have and those I want.

    Here are the full details of HR127 per the FPC.

    Well here’s some forced PUBIC registration, mandated training, mandated phycological check, and an $800.00 fee as well as other things just to own a firearm.

    Ohh and no grandfathering.

    Make sure to share it and click the ink below to let Sheila Jackson know Americans aren’t going to stand for this.


    From the FPC which I urge everyone to support.

    Bill/Issue: U.S. HR 127 - Gun licensing, Registration & Partial Ammo Ban

    Position: Strongly Opposed

    Author: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX-18)

    Summary: Establishes a nationwide gun registry that is searchable by the general public, mandates licensing to own or possess a firearm and requires a psychological evaluation prior to obtaining such a license, and institutes magazine & gun bans.

    The bill text is finally out and HR 127 is worse than we were even speculating.

    HR 127 establishes a federal firearms registration system that will be accessible by federal, state, and local governments, including the military - even the GENERAL PUBLIC! The system will track the make, model, and serial number of all firearms, their owners, the dates they were acquired, and where they are being stored.

    You read that right. HR 127 would make public your most private information to anti-gunners who can then dox, harass or even attack you while knowing full well every intimate detail of your self-defense systems.

    The system will also track firearms loans, including the ID of the loan recipient and for how long it is being loaned. This bill applies retroactively, so current firearms owners will have three months to supply their gun information to the federal government from the bill’s effective date.

    HR 127 also establishes a federal licensing requirement. Applicants will have to be at least 21, undergo a NICS check, complete a psychological evaluation, complete 24 hours of firearms training, and pay $800 for firearms insurance from the government.

    TRANSLATION: You not only have to PAY the government for the privilege of owning guns already in your possession; you also have to convince an anti-gunner that you deserve to keep your rights!

    For the psychological evaluation, a licensed psychologist will interview individuals’ spouses and at least two other family members or associates to “further determine the state of the mental emotional, and relational stability of the individual in relation to firearms.” Licenses will be denied to individuals hospitalized for issues such as depressive episodes; no duration for license disability is specified, and it does not matter whether the individual sought help voluntarily.

    And who gets the say in whether you can exercise your fundamental rights: the Attorney General, who will in all likelihood be Merrick Garland - an anti-gun extremist previously nominated to the Supreme Court by Barack Obama.

    HR 127 will also establish licensing requirements for the display of antique firearms and for the right to possess “military-style weapons.” To display an antique, applicants have to prove they own an antique firearm, describe how they will display it, and demonstrate that they have “safe” storage for it. To possess a “military-style weapon”, applicants will have to undergo 24 hours of safety and live fire training. It is unclear whether this training is in addition to the base 24 hours of training required to possess firearms and ammunition. “Military-style weapons” are defined as they are under assault weapons bans like those in California and New Jersey - weapons are identified by name or because they possess two or more features found on commonly owned, modern semiautomatic firearms such as an adjustable stock, pistol grip, etc.

    Finally, HR 127 also criminalizes the possession of “large-capacity magazines” (those carrying greater than 10 rounds) and “ammunition that is 0.50 caliber or greater.”

    Presently, there is no grandfathering clause in this legislation. Meaning you will have to choose between keeping your magazines and being fined and sent to prison.. potentially for decades!

    Importantly, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to comply with this legislation. The bill doesn't even specify how any of these measures will be implemented. Instead, it tasks the Attorney General with creating systems for enforcement while still holding gun owners to ironclad compliance dates.

    The government will not be able to process hundreds of millions of firearm registration petitions, and does not have the capacity to interview tens of millions of gun owners before the compliance deadline. Meaning YOU will be left holding the bag due to the government's incompetence!

    We've seen from California's example, where the DOJ's AW registration website crashed and yet gun owners were still placed on the hook, that these systems have not and will not work.

    Except this time, Rep. Jackson Lee wants you to face decades in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines for failing to comply with an unconstitutional and impossible-to-comply-with law.

    Calling Representative Jackson Lee’s legislation oppressive would be an understatement. HR 127 is an affront to individual liberty, an assault on working-class gun owners, and violates the most basic principles of the Constitution and our Republic.

    Please use FPC's Take Action form below and take action NOW. Tell Rep. Jackson Lee that her treasonous bill will not be tolerated and that she must WITHDRAW it immediately!

    They officially named the bill now. First we have a bill named after convicted felon Saint George, now one named after a foreign exchange student studying to take our jobs. -SMFH- As if the actual content of HR127 was not insulting and egregious enough....
