Pretty much the moment the 117th Congress was sworn in, Democratic lawmakers started in one of their favorite pastimes: giving the Second Amendment a slow death by a thousand tiny bureaucratic cuts.
At least six bills were proposed by three Democratic representatives that would heavily regulate everything from firearms storage to prohibiting ammunition and guns the government doesn't think you should have.
But I'm sure this won't be like the USSR, where they banned pretty much everything except for small caliber, smooth-bore long-rifles that would have been out of style in 1870 and then subsequently starved and shipped 20 million citizens off to the gulags!
Remember, the Founding Fathers were evil white men who didn't understand the trustworthy nature of government when they said "to disarm the people...is the most effectual way to enslave them."
Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee (D-TX) submitted four of the bills, with Reps. Bobby Rush (D-IL), and Al Green (D-TX) submitting the other two.
Here's the breakdown and links to each of the bills:
H.R.30 - To increase public safety by punishing and deterring firearms trafficking.
H.R.121 - To provide for the hiring of 200 additional Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents and investigators to enforce gun laws.
H.R.125 - To amend Title 18, United States Code, to provide for a 7-day waiting period before a semiautomatic firearm, a silencer, armor piercing ammunition, or a large capacity ammunition magazine may be transferred.
H.R.127 - To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.
H.R.130 - To require the safe storage of firearms and ammunition, and to require the investigation of reports of improper storage of firearms or ammunition.
H.R.167 - To prohibit the transfer of a firearm at a gun show by a person who is not a federally licensed firearms dealer.
If you're wondering how much of this kind of thing we can expect now that the Left has near complete control of America, the answer is "yes."
One such bill you can expect to see on the near horizon is a ban on "aSsAuLt wEaPoNs" from Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), who has tried for years to submit such legislation but has been thwarted by GOP lawmakers. Cicilline ran for re-election this year on the promise of getting such a ban accomplished.
Here's a good article on other things coming down the pipeline.
Remember, it only took a decade for the Left to go from this:
